Coffee With Yoda
“Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future..” – Yoda
This picture is from one of my favorite spots in San Francisco, hidden in the Presidio. I’m not a big Star Wars fan… I’ve never even seen the movie, but I do love me a good Yoda quote.
If I had dinner with Yoda, or let’s say a cup of coffee, here’s a theory I’d want to throw at him. What I have found with our most successful authors is that when they have been avoiding their “real” book in favor of the book they think they “should” write, there is often a lot of resistance. It shows up as writer’s block, confusion, distraction. One of our authors explained to me that this was a root chakra block.
But… when you FIND your truth and you know it’s right, but you are afraid to fully step into it, our most successful authors have some sort of freak, weird, inexplicable accident. Examples have been – all the door knobs falling off someone’s house, a “surprise” kitchen remodel because a cabinet refacing lead to all the granite cracking on the counter tops, a mysterious infestation of baby squirrels that made her home inhabitable. Just totally crazy stuff!
My theory is this… these people have “fast twitch” manifestation fibers. Everyone ALWAYS is manifesting their future with their current thoughts (see Yoda quote for confirmation – 100% of people 100% of the time.) HOWEVER – there are “Slow Twitch” manifesters and “Fast Twitch” manifesters.
Fast Twitch folks will have a random “accident” usually within 24 hours of the ah-ha moment. What’s happening is that your “inner author/wise woman self / higher self / God/ the Force / whatever you call it” is basically reflecting back a crack in the direction of your life.
Basically your life was going in one direction and you just shifted it with your thoughts.
Now… free will is ALSO real… so you can shift it back just as quickly with your thoughts. The way to do that is to get freaked out or distracted (that’s a root chakra issue — “am I good enough?” “who am I to….”)
But if you don’t freak out or let the “accident” distract you, but instead step into being the next version of yourself (the person who WROTE the book) and handle the “accident” as your FUTURE self instead of your past self, the results for you will happen much faster.
In short, you created a vortex in the Force with your thoughts…. the Force asks: Are you going to step through it or do you want us to seal this thing up?
All right Star Wars fans, let me have it… What do you think Yoda would say to my theory? Let me know in the comments.
