I Can Do It!

If you read the previous post, you know of my struggles to get my book into the hands of teens who are at risk for running away.  You know that giving up the effort has never been an option, although God knows I’ve tried.  You know that I moved it to Balboa Press (part of Hay House) and re-designed and re-titled it.

From the beginning of this odd odyssey, I have consistently asked Spirit for help with this book and I continue to do that in daily meditation.  My goal has been to manifest or create what I want, for I really do believe that we are the creators of our lives.  I’ve been a little clumsy with the manifestation because I don’t have a clear vision of just how to go about it.  This has led to a lot of wishing and hoping and praying,  great expectation and a faith that I was heard.  I always thought all of that couldn’t hurt and might help.

In yesterday morning’s meditation I spontaneously turned to Archangel Gabriel, whom I know to be expecially fond of writers.  I just asked her to take my book and do with it whatever needed to be done.  Again, it doesn’t hurt to ask.

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my Balboa marketing consultant, Brandon Drake.  He said that my book had passed a review and he could now offer me a spot at a Hay House “I Can Do It” Conference.  These well-respected  events are very big, two days of workshops with nationally known folks who are working, writing, and teaching in the field of spirituality. And new books are at the heart of the whole deal since it is put on by the publisher. The conferences attract around 2500 attendees.  There’s one in Austin this month but, as convenient as it would be, I can’t do that one because all 12 spots designated for Balboa authors are taken.

I was faced with a very big decision, for even manifestations come with a price tag and this price tag is pretty big for a couple of retirees to handle.  I consulted THWAM and we discussed how we could gather the money; we decided it is doable but pretty tight.  THWAM, always so loving and supportive of my dreams, simple said go for it.  And I did.

So I will be an author presenting RUN GIRL RUN at the “I Can Do It” Conference in Toronto in late June.  I will do a book-signing event.  I don’t have details yet about what else will be happening, but the books will be there and so will I.

Me, in Toronto, in June.  I am absolutely terrified by all aspects of this:  the flying, the getting to the hotel, the requirements of the conference itself, and managing to get myself back home at the end.  I’m going alone.  I have to book flights and accommodations myself.  At this moment I am not confident in all of that, and I expect I will learn huge lessons about myself and how far I can stretch.. And I CAN DO IT!  I’m pretty sure.

    As usual, you beat yourself up in anticipation and then sail through when the time comes. You are well tuned to Spirit and YOU CAN DO IT. You have much love surrounding you. GO FOR IT. My love accompanies you wherever you travel, physicaly and spiritualy.
