It’s ‘too late’ for me to go for my dream. I need to be more practical.
It’s ‘too late’ for me to attract love because I’m too old and/or I don’t have enough time.
It’s ‘too late’ for me to admit how I REALLY feel. We broke up so long ago. I don’t want my friends to think I haven’t moved on yet.
Have you been guilty of any of the above self-talk? (I said YES to all three btw)
If you said YES too, it’s ALL GOOD. Breathe!
*I have something that can help you (and others world wide) if you’re having trouble with this, so stay with me. First, a story.
Last year when the earthquake hit Japan, I had recently broken up with a guy we’ll call Mr. T (Tokyo-I know, original 🙂
I had read about the destruction via my personal news anchor aka my dad who sends me critical news in the form of two line emails (I don’t watch TV or read the news a lot and he worries that I’ll miss something 🙂
I was still hurting from the break-up (I was supposed to go visit him in Japan and we broke up the week before my flight..i know..GREAT timing, right?)
Thoughts like ‘it’s too late’ for me to tell him how I REALLY feel because then he’ll think I’m whiny and desperate. It’s too late to show him I still care for him, even though it didn’t work out. Anyhow, when I saw the news, I hadn’t talked to Mr. T in a few months and I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that it took a catastrophic event for me to get out of my own way.
Divine intervention ensued.
I was awoken at 2:30AM with this pulsating in my gut. I had been crying and was prompted to go to Facebook and lo and behold, he was ONLINE. Before my logical mind and Ego feminine pride could kick in, I just IMed him. Very simple.
“I love you. I’m so glad you’re alive and you’re okay.”
“I love you too. Thank you. I okay.” (His English wasn’t perfect but it was brilliantly authentic).
So freakin simple.
There was no talk of reconciliation. No awkward so “how are you faring since we’re not you know, a couple?” and certainly no fishing for details of each other’s dating lives.
It was just human to human.
Or Spirit to Spirit.
And best of all, that one simple action to override my pride and follow my intuition/instinct to let him know I cared (without any agenda for myself) kicked the
“It’s too late” excuse in the ass.
FYI: There is an epilogue to the story at the bottom of this email.
*******Here’s the deal: TRUTH TELLING TIME
It’s NEVER too late to trust your intuition and follow through on what it’s telling you.
It’s NEVER too late to surrender your Ego and pride in the name of authenticity.
It’s NEVER too late to SHOW UP FULLY. Bruises. War wounds and all.
So, ask yourself this:
1) “Where have I believed that it’s TOO LATE in my life?” (Go with your first instinct here. Note: It’s usually the one you’ve been avoiding the most) 🙂
2) “What action however small could I take RIGHT NOW to flip the script?
3) GO DO IT. (And get off Facebook already unless that’s your action and then by all means, rock it sister!)
Epilogue + An Invitation
So, that night at around 2:40am, Spirit guided me to resurrect a guided meditation from hiding which I channeled to help people feel less alone and more able to move on from the ties that kept them from finding love, “Journey to Love with ArchAngel Jophiel.”
I had stashed it away on my desktop because I felt it was “too soon” to show to the world something that wasn’t PERFECT (that’s a whole other issue for another night)
Again, kind of out of body, I put it up on my online store at the time. And I gave away a portion of the proceeds to the Red Cross to help Mr. T’s peeps and Japan.
I was so scared to write that email and put it up. It wasn’t “ready!” And overnight, so many people from all over the world wrote responses to the meditation and also their own stories on love in response to the one that I’ve shared that inspired its birth.
1) Do YOU have a similar story about turning around an “its too late” in love?
I’d LOVE to hear from you. Send me an email with your story.
2) Get your fix:
If you’re wanting to bring in love, need to forgive yourself/move on from a love or just need to feel HAPPY and LIGHT, I’ve resurrected the famous love meditation for you to purchase. (A portion will ALWAYS go to the Red Cross as that’s how it got its legs and I’m a sucker for tradition sometimes 🙂
Here’s to love and YOU!
