In our last post, we looked at the final logistical checklist as well as made sure self-sabotage didn't get the best of us.
If you've created something like an art exhibition, you can skip to the end of this post. If, however, your work is a performance, you've got one last step before celebration… The performance! This is your pep-talk!
This is your night! It's the evening you've been working toward for your whole life in fact. All the preparation you've done from learning your ABC's in kindergarten to eating lots of vegetables to sitting with the creative part of your spirit and letting what's there come out has prepared you for this evening. I say this to let you know that everything you have done up to now has allowed you to have everything you need to give yourself fully to the artwork.
You have been put on this planet to manifest this creative work, and no other being can contribute what you are about to offer. It is a precious gift. The value and validation of the work will not come in the praise or criticism of the audience, but in the fullness of your expression. The more vulnerable, honest, and authentic you are as you offer your gift, regardless of how you think other people will like it, the better a gift it is. Others may recognize it or not, but you will know in the depths of your heart that you have mingled your life with the divine for having given this treasure.
The final part of manifestation really is to receive your heart's thanks, and the appreciation of others for what you've manifested. Let your gift be an inspiration and a celebration that you have won your game! Party, dance, sing, laugh, and rejoice! Really let yourself know how great this is! Your full celebration of this success will complete the loop and allow you to rest and prepare for your next creative feat. Congratulations! I look forward to accompanying you on your next adventure.
"The thing about performance, even if it's only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities."
