 Follow your inspirations! Your inspirations are instincts, your God voice speaking to you. Honor them. Act on inspirations, not for accolades or approval from the mass, but from sheer invitation from the universe to put your energies out. Put aside looking for the outcome or the “Why” of it. Do it because you are called to do it. The universe has all those answers and they will be revealed in time.

Here’s what I mean. For example, an idea came to you to send inspiration letters once a week to President O’Bama, or you decided to write a play or you decided to open that t-shirt business you’ve been dreaming on for months. Do it!

Often what happens is, we start that first letter to O’Bama and a voice says “Why waste your time, he’s not going to read that. Do you think he’s going to write a letter back!?”

You write the first draft of your play, you now have to get others to read it and you are frozen in fear by possible negative feedback. “What were you thinking, this play has no arc, it needs conflict…yada yada”.

You’ve got all the designs for your t-shirts beautifully detailed in your journal and now just the thought of what printing and buying t-shirts from American Apparel will cost has you scrap the idea.

Taking your inspirations, moment to moment and in steps will get you through the journey of discovering the why and will lead you to the next moment or venture. If it’s an inspiration that truly moves you, consider sharing it with a friend or coach to motivate you and get you through.

Last, who are you to question the inspiration? Really! This is the universe speaking, pulling you, and inciting you. From these “crazy” inspirations, great things happen.
