Welcome to Jim Phillips’ Wednesday Wisdom for September 12th! Each Wednesday, WU World Changer Jim Phillips will share some mid-week wisdom for you to ponder and embrace!
“By denying your Self-Expression, you starve the many while feeding the few.”
There is a large unaddressed issue of starvation around the globe.
Not the starvation that might immediately come to mind of those who have little or no food (certainly this is an issue that needs more attention), but the hunger the world has for more and more of us to step into our own magnificence, and thereby serve as a demonstration to others of what life has to offer.
How often have you been inspired to do something that felt so good, so truthful, but you did not follow through because of the fear of what others might say, think or do as a result of your taking action on this inspiration?
Why do you think you are given deep heart-felt inspirations?
Where do they originate? Are inspirations given as some kind of cruel joke by an unkind, unloving Universe to get you excited, and then disappoint you when you conclude you can’t possibly carry out them out?
Or are they given to you as a gift from the kindest, most loving presence so you can experience and express your Self, your magnificence, in the grandest ways possible?
A question I ask myself regularly is why I give other people, the few, authority over me? What do they know of me and who I truly am? What do they know of my desires and inspirations that they can tell me what is in my best interest? What is it that I fear so deeply that I deny my Self and therefore the world, the truth and gift of who I am?
Quite honestly, what others say or think about us has nothing to do with who we are or what we are capable of experiencing unless we allow it to.
Meaning, we give power to that which we hold as true. It is from our truth, that which we accept and hold as true, that we make decisions to do or not do something, or to be or not to be a certain way.
What I have come to understand and believe is that my fear is not the fear of what others might say or do, it is the fear of my magnificence and how that would play out in this world. It is my knowing on a very deep level that I, all of us, are more powerful than we give ourselves permission to be.
By succumbing to our fears and feeding the few, we starve the many, thus denying the world the greatest gift any of us has to offer, the truth of who we are. However, if we give in to our magnificence in spite of our fears, we serve as an example to all others of who they are and of what they are capable.
So, I ask you, are you feeding the few and starving the many? Are you denying your Self and the world the full experience and expression of your magnificence? Are you afraid of how powerful you truly are?
The inspirations you are given are notifications from the Universe that the time is now to step fully and completely into your magnificence. Otherwise, you would not have been given the inspiration to do so.
Next time you have that inspiration to do or be something that feels truthful, be bold, answer the call of your Soul and the Universe, and take that joyful leap of faith out of your fears and into your magnificence.
