Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you? -Jack Gilbert
Last week I wrote about what it feels like when we receive a “nudge” from Spirit like an idea or inspiration….
It feels right in every fiber of your being until that moment when fear kicks in and you talk yourself out of it. (Miss the post? Read it here.)
A few days later, a friend of mine sent me an audiobook version of Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It was a breezy and mild Sunday afternoon, so I decided to head out for a walk, earbuds in hand, and listen to the introduction of the book.
“The universe buries jewels within each and every one of us and then stands back to see if we can find them,” the author read. As I heard those words, they resonated quite deeply, and I smiled at the perfect synchronicity of the message.
Those ideas and inspirations are glimpses into what is hidden within you; your deepest potential, purpose and path to creative expression. They are Spirit tapping you on the shoulder and saying “here you go…”
Your only job (and mine) is to listen and have the courage to bring forth the treasures that lie within you.
