Live with heart and passion

Last weekend I attended a beautiful concert by angelic singer/songwriter Kaleah LaRoche. I have known Kaleah for years and it is made MY heart sing to hear how she is getting out in public. Two of her songs are hitting the tops of the charts on the website American Idol Underground, and her music always makes me cry beacause she channels the frequencies of God and the angels as she sings. I have all her CDs and listen to them when I need to remember heaven. They open my heart.

Her dedication to her calling is inspiring. She quit a successful career, much like I did. I was an engineer turned author and angel communicator. She was a mortgage banker turned musician.

I remember the days when I earned $6 after taxes and bookstore commission for being 'psychic in the window' at a local metaphysical bookstore. I remember the days of teaching classes for the one person who showed up. As Dr. Peebles often does, I quote Emily Dickinson:

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

It is not the magnitude of what we do, but rather whether or not we do it with heart. God supports your hearts dreams and desires to share your gifts and talents whatever the may be, whether on a small or a grand scale. If you want to start a business using your gifts, JUST START. Trust, trust, and trust again that God will guide you if you but SURRENDER to your own heart. Make money on the side in a 'real job' if you have to and trust the money will come if you keep walking the path.

Our gifts were given to us by God to be shared.

I was scared stiff when I quite my 'real' job to do readings full time. I'm sure Kaleah felt similarly when she quit hers. I'm sure you will feel the same if you end up following your passion. At some time we let go of the familiar to embrace the new dreams. As the license plate on the car I got stuck behind this weekend said, we take ourselves to a NEWLVL (New level) when we trust.

Your dreams can come true. You CAN create a career based on your talents and gifts. It may take TIME and PATIENCE but God will guide you.

A client told me that my workshop at the Celebrate Your Life conference sold out prior to many of the famous authors. I was blown away. I remember the one person classes, the days of not knowing where rent was coming from, and the dreams I have of helping get God's message of love out to the entire world. I think I'm on the path. You are too.

Trust in you. Trust in God's love for you. Take one step at a time. You never know where it might lead :)
