I’m putting The Lisa Show on hold for the months of July and August.
As you may know, I recently returned from walking the Camino (from Portugal to Spain) and that for me, it was life-changing and the best thing I’ve ever done.
For me, my decision to go on the Camino (2 weeks, 150 miles) was a step into “the river of change” (see Kimberly Cartwright’s video and her notes in a Printable PDF document for you, below).
Going on the Camino, I did what I have not done in years: completely allow my routine and work schedule to be disrupted. I made a decision to really allow myself a space for change to occur. I made a decision that I was not going to do anything I usually do (for me this involves reading and answering emails and being on the computer). I teach this stuff – watch your thoughts and beliefs and be willing to disrupt your life and routine habits – and yet, I had never REALLY given myself that space – not really – even though I’ve spent years encouraging other people to do it.
I know that no one needs to go to a different location to change – change occurs in your mind. But I do know for me that it was a tremendous gift to myself to change my location and do something totally radically different.
Coming back home to Maine, I’m allowing my next steps to be shown to me. I don’t want to pick up my old routine, just out of, well, old routine and habit.
What has come to me very strongly is to write this healing program that I have been thinking about and talking about for years. It’s time. The writing is coming very fast and it’s all I want to do right now.
I looked at my calendar and realized that I don’t have anything planned for the next two months except for one event on Saturday July 21st in Quincy MA – the kick-off party to the ACIM Boston 2019 Conference. I will post this on the Events page here on my website. I would love to see you there. It’s 10:30am-4pm for $25, includes lunch. Come on out and join us for the celebration on healing.
Also I have a previous commitment to do one online interview this summer with my friend Britta Aragon about creating a career you love. I’m excited for that one. I love Britta and the work she does and I am happy to share my story of following my heart and doing work I love. Later this summer, I will send out the invitation by email to watch this.
So as I looked at my calendar and saw almost NO traveling and NO events for the whole summer, it occurred to me, this is the perfect time to write this healing program in the month of July and August.
So, this being said: I’m putting The Lisa Show on hold for the months of July and August 2018. It will resume in September.
I would love for you to keep me in your prayers and to join with me in love in this project over the next two months as I get this material out of my head and out of my notebooks onto the computer.
What I want to share you with today is Kimberly Cartwright’s video and teaching on The River of Change. Below also are her notes, which I asked her to send to me so I could post them for you. (You will see in the video that Kimberly says she is mostly going to read from her notes so she doesn’t miss a thing, and that’s what is posted below.)
Are YOU ready to step into The River of Change?
Are you willing to let go of your habitual routines and ways of doing things?
For me, initially, this was a scary decision to stop doing The Lisa Show and to stop doing the things I usually do because I thought: I might lose my whole mailing list. People might decide to move onto to other things if I’m not there, sending email reminders. Maybe some people will get upset.
THIS, my friends, IS The River of Change – the one we are invited to step into. It can be scary stepping in because you’re afraid you might be swept away, and your whole world with it. Your friends and family may get upset as you begin to change.
Are you willing to do that?
Are you willing to join the ranks of Jesus, Martin Luther King, Frederick Douglass, Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandala and the thousands of other individuals who were willing to let go of their “dependable” and “safe” life and trust in The River of Life … and allow it to carry them where it was going?
ARE YOU READY?
That first step brings up all the resistance and the mind tries to convince us how we have to keep doing things the way we have always done, otherwise all will be chaos.
And this is the place of trust.
Here is Kimberly Cartwright. This is one of the most powerful teachings I have ever seen. She gives us the 3 steps that occur as you step into The River of Change. The first two steps come from you. The final step is done for you.
I’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS RIVER – where we’ve all emerged completely brand new. See you there.
