The message today is a simple yet impactful one. Read to the end if you are someone who values yourself and your life. Take time for YOU to listen, to learn, and connect your inner world to your outer world, it’s where the magic (and inspired action, aka direct route to GOLD) happens.
Do in your heart what you know to be true, for if you resist it you’ll be thrown into choppier waters and asked another time if you want to surrender or get swallowed alive.
Picture yourself in the ocean.
Trust/surrender taking you up-current at a rapid pace in flow.
Resistance, pushing you against the current in fierce push, near drowning mechanism.
Let this imagery be a metaphor for your life.
Back to the phrase: do in your heart what you know to be true.
This phrase is easier said than done sometimes. The big thing with doing what is true and real (in our hearts), is that we are so used to denying what we really want.
We are also used to second-guessing, controlling outcomes (predicting/forecasting), and essentially not trusting ourselves.
Here’s the thing, when you deny your heart and fail to trust yourself, the Universe and God will push you off a ledge. They have no problem doing that. It’s your higher power doing it’s best to keep and/or put you into a state of flow when you’re doing your best to RESIST it all.
If you don’t move (detach), the Universe does it for you.
Across the past 3 days I’ve had two deep conversations with different people around this topic: move or be moved. They got moved, as have I, several times when I got too comfortable or decided to ignore/neglect my heart/intuition, and stay in my shit until I wasn’t the one making the decision (to move forward beyond my self-trust level”).
Sometimes we romanticize or future trip ourselves into BElieving Option A is safer/better/wiser/more lucrative/________ (insert what you wish), than Option B.
The comparison of the two is unfair in that you’ve not experienced the latter (even if the latter is still an unknown variable), AND that you are simply looping BACK into an old (or present) habit loop.
Extract the word BACK from that sentence. Do simple math if where you want to go: FORWARD. Even if you don’t know (yet trust) the next step, choose to step FORWARD and break your habit loop.
What got you here will partially get you to where you’re going next (health, business, money, relationship). BUT how much time are you willing to sacrifice as you grow and at what pace?
If you really want to quantum leap and shift some critical things (and ways of being), you get to step into the future version of you and TRUST your internal compass instead of waiting to be jarred by God/the Universe (and off of the shiny pedestal you feel safely perched upon).
Ask yourself today what you are comfortably resisting as a result of NOT trusting yourself fully. I find that writing things down makes a HUGE difference to bring it all into perspective.

What people are saying:
“I had no idea I was comfortable living in chaos, and how I let it become normal. Going through this short training has given me the perspective and action steps I’ve needed to break free from one really damaging longtime pattern and the pain I’ve been living in. I’m excited for what I’ve created priorities around and to making changes permanent. I’m just excited to be excited! I haven’t been excited in a long time. Thanks Sloan.” – Marketing Executive, pharmaceutical industry, age 38, New York
Decide today what gets to change for you to move forward and TRUST in your heart, for it knows, even when your head tries to lead you astray.
I love you,
