One of the laws of the universe is ask and you shall receive.
You’ve heard of this, yes?

Yet how often do we truly ask?

And if we do ask for something, how often do we feel guilty or shameful or undeserving?

In this TED Talk on “The Art of Asking”, Amanda Palmer talks about connecting with people through the very act of asking. And the power of asking from a space of raw vulnerability.

When we ask of the universe and of others, there is a softness and beauty of the simultaneity of gifting and receiving that can occur. It’s not about being deserving and having to do something to earn it. What if it’s as simple as truly being us and just asking?

As Amanda says, what if we could “face each other and give and receive fearlessly?”

Check out this video for more on the power of asking, and what can show up when we are willing to be seen and truly see others.

Kid Embarks on a Mission

What if, no matter what the circumstances of your life have been up to this point, you can choose to create beyond them?

What if limitation is just a lie? And what if when we stop identifying ourselves by our story, we can create the magic and possibilities in this world that we are all capable of?

When I watched this video of Jaden, an orphan and remarkable 6 year old little boy, embarking on a mission to make other people smile, I was reminded of our incredible capacity for kindness and caring. I was also reminded of our ability to choose beyond limitation and the seeming miracles that get created when we are just being us.

Despite having lost both of his parents, Jaden was tired of seeing people unhappy in this world. So he made a plan, and set off on an adventure to make more people smile with absolutely no expectations.

Watch the video HERE and see the sheer joy created in so many people’s worlds by his phenomenal generosity of spirit.

What capacity and potency do you have, just by being you, that you’ve been refusing to acknowledge?

What limitation have you bought as real, that if you chose beyond it, you could create something totally different in your life?

Is now the time to embark on your adventure? What happiness may await you on the other side?

And what if you, being you, are the gift, the possibility, and the change this world requires?

Until next time beautifuls,
