Have You Lost Your Passion?By Jim Self Mastering Alchemy
What is your job anyway? As this Great Shift into higher awareness occurs, you must distinguish between what is your job and what isn’t. By diving head-first into this 3D game you have volunteered to contribute a very unique, specialized piece of the puzzle. The puzzle is called Adding to All-That-Is. Please notice the difference between “one piece of the puzzle” vs taking on the entire puzzle. The latter is a huge job; the former a bit more do-able. The heart surgeon has a very specialized talent and doesn’t even consider opening a general practice. A successful plumber recognizes her art and doesn’t also try to become an electrician.
Your bandwidth is one radio station playing clearly the music you love. Not all of the stations. Sure – two dozen stations broadcast to your home, but there is only one that is in true alignment with who you are. Maybe two. The jazz station and NPR. Not the Latino station or country or the hits from the 70’s, Not Frank Sinatra or Christian broadcasting. Just jazz and NPR. The rest is noise. Perhaps you enjoyed those stations at one point, but now it is noisy. And that noise is wearing many people down because they are trying to tune into all the stations, all the time, all at once.
When you identify and focus only upon what pleases YOU, you will be happy and available to contribute your very best to the people and tasks within your bandwidth – allowing all the others to tune into a radio station that better matches their energy.
A Tool to Discern Your Bandwidth:
Imagine a gauge (0-100) and ask yourself these questions as new and current projects and people step into your life. If the number that pops up isn’t higher than 90, consider stepping away from it and therefore allowing more of what IS in alignment to enter your life. Just let the number pop up – no analyzing allowed.
1. How much fun is this project/person?
2. How good does this make me feeeeel in my body?
3. How aligned is this to my personal bandwidth, really?
As you play with this tool, know that even if the person or project scores high today – that doesn’t mean you must keep it in your life forever. These are most important times of Shift and transition. What is true today may not be true tomorrow. Allow yourself and your passion to evolve. You are big, not small. You are significant, not insignificant. You have a very important piece to play as the healer, teacher, leader you came here to be. BE who you came here to be.
