Do You Know Your Constant?

Are you aware of the constant that propels you forward?

When I first started my business more than 12 years ago, I thought what propelled me forward was a desire to get my gifts out to the world, a love of transformation, a burning desire to share a new way of being with the world.

But, as I have grown and developed, I can see now the constant that was my governing guide was to be safe. To create from a place I was sure wasn’t going to create judgment. To create from a place of perfectionism. Those were the “constants” that drove my decisions.

Unconsious? Yes. Sustainable? No.

Recent conversations with clients have highlighted for me my own shift over the last several years from a set of very external constants to an internal constant. This internal constant is my connection with Soul.

With this internal constant, all the old programming drops away. (Or, at least I can see that it IS old programming and then I get to make the choice about whether to continue believing it or not. Sounds like a simple decision, but not always.) With this internal constant, I have a connection that helps me see the bigger picture and allows me to more completely fulfill the mission I came to complete here on planet Earth. And of course, being in alignment with this constant provides me a much more reliable, sustainable, juicy, and joyful way to create prosperity in my life.

As I was thinking about this, I came across this writing from Lao Tzu:

Holding to the Constant

Lao Tzu

Break into the peace within,
Hold attention in stillness
And in the world outside
You will ably master the ten thousand things.

All things rise and flourish
Then go back to their roots.
Seeing this return brings true rest,
Where you discover who you really are.
Knowing who you are, you will find the constant.
Those who lack harmony with the constant court danger,
But those who have it gain new vision.

They act with compassion; within themselves they can find room for everything
Having room, they rule themselves and lead others wisely.
Being wise, they live in accordance with the nature of things.

How about you? Are you creating from an external or internal set of constants? Are you ready to shift to that internal constant that will show you who you really are? That will bring you a sustainable and joyful flow of prosperity.

  1. Thanks so much, Jennifer. This is just what I need to hear today. I have been struggling with discouragement about my business, knowing I need to trust Source more and do footwork with peaceful ease, but more often pushing thru my own negative messages and trying frantically to will clients to come. Of course, it doesn’t work at all well.
