Tap into Real Gold

by Stephanie on March 29, 2014

Real Gold Logo Tap into Real GoldHow can we nurture and discover our real gold?There is a real gold in us. When we find it, we know because time stands still. We forget about lunch and even shopping sounds boring. It’s that moment where we are in pure love. There is no anger or elation. It’s a river that we wade in and out of throughout our lives. The tricky part is knowing when we have touched our real, true gold because fool’s gold looks mighty good.

Our real gold is not shopping, eating, watching reality tv, or a great movie. Those are fun things to do and are jewels but do not come close to real gold. Our real gold is what we came to this life to do that serves others and ourselves at the same time. While we are fulfilling others with our gift, we are filling our own cup.

When I am singing and playing, connected, time stands still. There is no separation between myself and those who hear my music.

*You lose track of time.
*There is usually some feedback from others that you are blessing them by your gift. If your gift is hidden from the view of others, you may not receive as much feedback.
*You light up when you talk about it.
*You spend your time and money investing in it.

Center your life around your gold. That is the secret. That is the quickest way to a fulfillfied life. It’s not about having it easy. It’s about being driven to share or do something bigger than yourself. It’s about bringing your gold to the tallest mountain to as many people as you can because your heart could burst from the power of it.

Love it. Make time for it. Treasure it. Give thanks for it. This is your own, unique, sacred gift to the world. Make no mistake. We all have real gold.

Listen to the meditation for finding your real gold to go deeper.

Listen with the Heart

March 3, 2014

When we sing from our  heart, we have an  inner place of knowing there is something important to share with the world that only we can say in the way we say it.  When people listen with their hearts, they will hear it.  Those who need our unique message will have, as they say, “food […]

Creativity and Self-Discipline

October 31, 2013

” creativity monsters–the voices from the past and present who criticize, attack, ridicule, and judge us, and who banish us from owning and expressing our creativity with joy and abandon…. They’re the people who imply that creativity must be “good” in order to be valuable, who subject your work to public appraisal before you’re allowed […]
