Trust gives us that grounded-ness, that sense of security, that sense of Peace, and knowing that all is well and that we are really taken care of. It’s not just some nice sentiment that we say, like, “Oh yah, all is well. We’re supported. Everything’s happening for me.” We need to trust it and know it in every cell of our body.

And yet, trust is one of the critical components that is often missing for folks who are not feeling especially fulfilled and passionate and powerful about their life experience.

So…I bolted upright in that hammock at the Luz Divina pousada in Abadiania, Brazil in 2008 – not far from the John of God Casa – after I heard a woman’s voice say “You’re not in control.”

I couldn’t stay lying there any longer, as I felt incredibly unsettled. So, I did what I often did when I was trying to avoid knowing something important about myself – I went in search of something to eat and someone to talk to.

But of course, neither was available.

I was going to have to reconcile this on my own. I was going to have to get to the bottom of this revelation of “not being in control” by myself.

When I returned home to my small studio in the urban environment of NW Portland – suddenly everything that had felt right with my life felt totally wrong.

How could I continue on with my job, in a cubicle, success coaching adults over the phone while people swarmed all around me in an office several floors off the ground? How could I live in a small little box that was surrounded by horns and garbage trucks and tourists and locals milling about?

Maybe I wasn’t in control I realized, because the Heather Strang who had created the above life didn’t seem to exist anymore, and instead what came forth was a strong call to write my first book (although I had no idea what that was!) and be at the beach (although I had no idea where that was).

Because I was finally open, no longer fighting full-force the flow of my life trajectory (aka my Destiny), Spirit could guide me with more ease.

A former boyfriend turned friend moved back to Kauai and invited me to come stay and rent with him while I “figured out” what the hell I was doing with my life, since my time in Brazil had left me in a new state of consciousness.

I sold my car and most of my things, got the approval from corporate to continue coaching for them from Kauai (which had never been allowed before and I was seen as sort of a unicorn at the company because of this!) and had a big going away party – all within 3 weeks.

Spirit moves fast when you’re not in the way.

I wrote my first book, working on it every evening after coaching during the day, on Poipu Beach in Kauai.
It was a time of quiet, of introspection and of being brought together with just the right mentor, just the right coach, just the right lifestyle (I went Vegan and was outside every day hiking and writing) – as I became more Me.

I breathed deep. I was surrendering. I was learning that I was not in control and that was a very good thing.

I was learning that surrender – aka not trying to control everything – isn’t a one-time event. It’s not something you do and then you’re done.
We have a mind, a conditioned mind, and a Soul that has had many, many lifetimes. There are wounds in the conditioning and in the Soul. There are fears and traumas and story after story after story.

And all of it is begging for our conscious awareness along with the following 3 things – on repeat:

  1. Surrender
  2. Trust in Self, Spirit & Life
  3. Embodying who we really are – our Divinity

I went on to learn after my time in Kauai how to work/manipulate the Law of Attraction, how to intend and ritual and release.

But that did not put me on the total path of my Destiny.

It was only when at the end of 2014 – as I sat surrounded by the external manifestations I was sure would make me happy: a fiance, a book deal, a book tour, a movie option, a 6-figure income as a lifestyle blah-blah-blah (that’s the official title I’m giving my former biz way of being ;)) – that I “got” it.

It wasn’t about any of THAT.

It was about me getting the fuck out of the way of my Destiny. I could use my will (& I did) to create a lot of the above. But I didn’t lock into the full path of my Destiny (I was on a lot of scenic routes) until I surrendered fully to Spirit. When I surrendered fully to MYSELF, to who I really was, not who I thought I had to be, not even who I thought I wanted to be. But to the formless, dynamic, expansive, true ME that had lived a multitude of lifetimes.

My personality was seduced with the above listed external manifestations while my Higher Self longed for me to get on with it and get into the life that was waiting for me.

This life that I now live. A life of spaciousness. A life of ease. A life without alarms or to-do lists a mile long or rushing anywhere. A life that feels a lot like a vacation except it never ends (and I no longer drink alcohol like I did while on vacation!). A life of creativity. A life of abundance in all forms. A life of joy. A life of deep loving.

A life that I have no idea where it’s taking me to next, but I lean in as I am led to the next person, the next relationship, the next creative endeavor, the next program, the next mentorship client, the next dance, the next joyous laughter, the next salt bath.

It is a life of Magic.

An example for you: It’s a life of having the thought pop in that I want to see this one movie, but it just doesn’t seem to line up to do so and then it’s officially out of all of the theaters and watching it on my laptop doesn’t feel quite right either so I let it go. And then…

Then, coming out of doing something I love – a dance class – I feel compelled to drive to Whole Foods that is sort of out of my way, but I feel it so I follow it. And on that drive I go by this little theater that I love and it says they are playing the movie that I’ve been wanting to see on that very night. And then I hear, “Ask so-and-so to go with you.” And then I ask so-and-so to go with me and she had tried to go see that very movie at that very same theater the night before but her intuition said to wait and now look, here we are!

I’m not kidding you people – every day of my life is like this. I follow what feels right – I don’t do any work until it feels right. I don’t write this blog until I’m guided to. I don’t do client sessions until I’m guided to. I don’t call people or ask them to do things, until I’m guided to. I eat what I am guided to. I love who I am guided to. I release who I am guided to.

And every single day it’s this piece lining up with this piece and this piece leading me to the next big insight OR a really fun movie date with one of my favorite people.

This is a life of Magic. It’s a life of Spirit-Led Mastery. It’s a life of Surrender, Trust, & Embodying your Divinity.

If you’re ready to be attuned, aligned and supported in creating a life of Magic, a life of Spirit-Led Mastery for yourself, join us for Spirit-led Mastery: Living Your Destiny Masterfully. We begin in 1 week!

You know how you think you know … you think you know where your life is headed?
You think you know how this or that relationship will turn out?
You think you know how your “career” or “business” will expand or contract?
You think you know where you’ll live and who you’ll love?

You think you know, because knowing makes you feel safe. Secure. Protected.

Only you don’t know.
In fact, you have no idea.

You have no idea how amazing, how magical, how off-the-charts-unbelievably good your life can be.

Why?

Because you’re trying to control.
You’re trying to make shit happen.
You’re trying to make people love you.
You’re trying to get your business to this or that level.
You’re trying to climb this or that ladder of achievement.
You’re trying to move here or there.
You’re trying to get this or that job.

And I’m here to tell you – from extensive personal experience both in my own life and in the lives of the near 1,000 individuals I’ve supported over the past 8 years – there is no possible way that you can live the glorious, fulfilling, joyous life that you’re here for when you’re trying to control any single thing.

This bomb was dropped on me as I lay in a hammock in Abadiania, Brazil in 2008. As I lay there, mostly catatonic, processing my first psychic surgery, through the soft breeze I heard, “You are not in control.”

I bolted upright.

No. I WAS in control. Wasn’t it me who just sat up in this very hammock (awkwardly so, it arching back and forth as I tried to catch my balance)?!

I WAS the one making the DECISIONS.
I was the one LIVING this life.

Wasn’t I? Wasn’t I?
I wasn’t so sure after a woman at the John of God casa “prayed” over me and I felt body sensations I had never before experienced and 2 weeks later I was “healed” of the reproductive health issues I had been having for over a year.

I went on to spend the 8 years following that psychic surgery filled with an immense passion and commitment to both understanding & living the Magic of this life – of Spirit, of our desires, of why and how life works the way it does.

And over time it became more and more clear to me that the whisper I heard in that hammock was the exact, most aligned, truest truth. You Are Not In Control.

The more I surrendered my will to Divine Will, the better my life got.
The richer – both financially and in experiences and emotions – my life got.
The more Love that I felt.
The more Joy that I felt.

As someone who had prided themselves on being a Type A, go-getter – I was set free.
I was finally able to breathe deep.
I was home. To the TRUE Me. The Me I couldn’t access in my control and fear and worry.

So listen closely … that voice that I heard, that voice that you are hearing now – it’s right, you are not in control.

You are not in control of ANY of the outcomes in your life. Say it with me, “I now surrender control to the outcomes in my life.”
You are not in control of the people that come into your life or the ones that leave.
You are not in control of Mother Earth’s movement or not-movement.
You are not in control of the car, the house, the job, the business.

But you ARE a valuable and important co-creator of your (& the collective!) life experience.

And as such you are in charge of the following:

**Your reactions to what is happening around you.
**What actions you take to support your Destiny (& thus the collectives) in unfolding with ease, grace and abundance.
**How you choose to “work” with the non-physical energy around you, including your Spirit Team and Source, as well as aspects such as time and the quantum field that we exist in.

And you can make your life even easier by boiling it down to this:

You are in charge of your relationship with your Higher Wisdom (Higher Self, Spirit Team and Source) and following all actions directed from It. Then, then you must surrender your hold on every single outcome from every single action that you take.

If you want to live in joy that is.
Oh, and bliss.
Oh, and wealth and abundance.
Oh, and Love.
Oh, and peace.

It’s taken me 38 years to get here. But I am telling you, it was worth every ounce of “work” I put into it AND there is still so much more to discover.

It’s time to say good-bye to your illusion of control.
I had to have it pried from my cold, sweaty, grasping hands (and that’s just not pretty).
Don’t do that to yourself.
Save yourself the suffering and the pain and just —– Surrender.

Want to know what Surrender really looks like?
Want to know how to Surrender to your Destiny?
Want to know how to Trust that when you Surrender you’ll be fully supported?
Want to remember in every cell and emotion and thought that you are a slice of Source?

If so, join us for Spirit-Led Mastery.
We begin May 3 and we will spend 92 days together going deep with the energy of the 5 Retrogrades we are currently in. I’m calling it Retrograde Season – with Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn & Pluto (all the heavy hitters) – in Retrograde.

Synchronistically, this time of retrograde which my favorite astrologer Kristin Fontana calls a time to “replenish” is happening during the Wood and Fire Chinese elements of Spring & Summer which create expansion and maximum expansion so that we can Soar to new heights in this chapter in our life.

The end of August (Mastery completes synchronistically on 8/2) is when the next, big, new chapter of our life must begin IF we have done the Soul work necessary for this to happen. If we don’t, we’ll be mired in drama central (and no one wants to be part of that!).

You are being called to connect deeply with the core of who you really are in a way you have never done before. What is it that you HAVE to do that makes everything else fade away in non-importance? What is calling you from the depths of your being?

You must deep dive so that you can expand into the life that is waiting for your conscious, co-creation with it.

Join me and your life will never be the same again.

And get to it – we start in 2 weeks!
Xoxo

When we shift our thought-forms, and we shift out of negative-thought forms, we are literally shifting the availability of that though-form to others in the collective. We are making it less accessible to other Souls in the collective. That’s how powerful we all are!

I used to loathe meditation. Even the term made me uncomfortable.

Sitting, alone and quiet, just focusing on my breath for what seemed like hours on end was as close to torture as I could stand.

I would try it, halfheartedly anyway, and after a minute or so conclude that while other people may be able to do this mediation thing — I was not one of them.

But when health crisis after health crisis came knocking on my body’s door and everyone from my physical therapist to surgeon suggested I give it a shot, I knew I had to find a way to overcome my meditation avoidance once and for all.
