May arrives in Ibiza like a fresh spring dawn… We are just six weeks from the summer solstice right now! At this stage of the year, how have your new year’s resolutions, goals and intentions been playing out?
Do you feel like you have been working really hard with nothing to show for it, or have you been stepping back to give your projects enough space to blossom, or unfold, in their own time? Are you still feeling inspired by your visions and your bright and brilliant 2013 ideas? Or are you feeling tired and a bit out of alignment with your passion and your purpose?
Those of us lucky enough to be in Ibiza last Sunday were able to take a reprieve from life’s pressures and step through the Atzaro portals of Balinese bliss for the Healing Ibiza event, where all of the island’s contributors, healers, therapists, teachers, workshoppers, chefs, speakers, dancers, musicians, organisers…. even car park stewards, were helping others (and each other) revive and refresh for free!
Healing Ibiza was conceived from clear intentions by a group of us, who wanted to encourage giving for giving’s sake, creating for the pure experience of creating something beautiful, wonderful, delightful, joyful – in essence healing for those giving – which encourages this higher vibration mind (and heart) set of giving without worrying about receiving.
So what does this mean? And how does that translate to entrepreneurs in Ibiza – and worldwide – running businesses? Especially when profit, cashflow and investors need to be considered as a very material reality. It’s all about passion.
Lets break the word PASSION down to: PASS – I – ON
When you are doing something with PASSION you are putting your heart into it. You are also – (PASS – ION) passing on your energy, without having to push yourself, or create stress or pressure to achieve it. The results happen naturally.
In her book, ‘The Intention Experiment’, Lynn McTaggart talks about needing to let go of the results of your goal, intention or outcome, in order to allow it to manifest most easily.
So by letting go of having to have it now, or looking for specific results right away, trusting that it is happening is a big key to staying aligned with this fast-moving creation energy. But how do you stay in this magical place of alignment that so many new age teachers – and yoga teachers – are talking about?
Practice yoga, get grounded in your body, where you can feel safe and secure to trust that you will succeed, that projects that are meant to happen will, whilst listening to your inner-voice telling you when it is the right moment to make that phone call to the client, letting you know when you are in a relaxed, strong and positive place to meet with the potential new employers or investors, helping you stay in a good state of body and mind to manage the challenges that arise, without being pushed of balance too much.
Because when you lose your balance, your back goes, the shoulders start aching, the mind freezes with anxiety, all because, through fear of NOT succeeding, you try to grasp hold of an outcome which has not yet materialised into reality.
