Guest post: Willingness by Barbara Krauss

Today, I would like to share another guest post! This comes from another ARTbundance graduate, Barbara Krauss. She has a weekly e-newsletter called the Monday Morsel. She posted the morsel below in June. You can sign up here for future morsels.


Every morning before I meditate and write, I choose an angel card which contains a word I use as my thought and quality for the day. The card I chose this morning was ‘willingness’. That got me to thinking about what I am willing to do to create the life I want to live?

What are you willing to do to create the life you want to live? Are you willing to explore the possible and quiet your internal voice that shouts impossible? Are you willing to not live in fear and to allow your living to be open to you? Are you willing to be less afraid, to open your heart to being vulnerable? Are you willing to expose old wounds and allow your long deserved healing to finally happen? Are you willing to forgive yourself for the limiting beliefs you have held on to for so very long? Are you willing to risk your significance and to step through the threshold of finding out what is on the other side? Are you willing to be more accessible to yourself? Are you willing to laugh, to cry, to be curious, to be present to all that is yours to embrace? What are you willing to do to create the life you want to live?

This YESipe for Willingness contains the simplest of ingredients. It can be prepared in a moment and feed you for a lifetime. Mix together a cup of willing to release that which no longer serves you, a cup of willing to surrender and a cup of letting go. Add in ½ teaspoon of softening your grip and ¼ cup of saying goodbye to old beliefs. When all of the ingredients are blended together, gently fold in 2 tablespoons of lightness, 2 teaspoons each of joy, mischievousness, amazement and wonder, and a dash of glorious willingness. Taste it and savor it for you have created it!

Say YES and feast on your life!
