Have you heard the saying ‘busy as a little beaver’? That is what April will be for us, we are now going to jump on those opportunities that were presented to us in March…or those lessons we got as opportunities to learn and to grow and to change…yes, change! Now is the time to start building for the future, for Beaver is the Builder. If you want to create a dam, you’ve got to start gnawing down the trees…right? So what will it take for you to get this new project in your life going? Spring is here and it is all about new beginnings…moving forward…finding a new way…putting new energy into what you are already doing. It takes work and effort to create what you want, to bring your dreams to reality. What is your first step? Take time every morning to envision the next step (be sure to get Derek’s discourse for April, he talks about this), make a list of what will create your future. If you find your mind heading the wrong way in all this, bring it back by replacing any negative thoughts with positive ones, or say a mantra. Use all the tools you have received in the teachings to move past the habits that have always stopped you in the past. Remind yourself what your motivation is, this will help you move past the old ways so you can build something new for yourself. Nothing stops beaver once he gets going and if someone comes along and destroys what he has built, does he give up? No, he just re-builds, finds another way or another place, moves the rocks over, churns up the mud a bit, and starts again. Did one way of advertising not work? Find another. Does the first chapter of your book not turn you on? Re-write, or throw it out and start again from another angle. Did one effort at holding a class not bring people? Does a beaver stop at one effort? Think not! Think again! Keep going…the busy beaver gets the best swimming hole! Our ego can be a tricky one, know that every perceived obstacle is an opportunity for growth and how you get past it is with Intention – Intent runs the Universe. Focus, focus, focus on your intent, like Beaver’s intent to build a dam, all his focus, all his energy, all his love goes into creating the dam, then he just starts and lets Spirit guide his hands and his steps. You can do it…remember what Yoda said – ‘not try, do’. And listen to Derek’s radio shows, he is giving us some really great teachings to make our dreams and wishes a reality!
