So you may have noticed a distinct lack of presence on my behalf in the last little while.
To say I’ve been busy is an understatement.
But not just busy – focused – like a machine.
Never before in my life had I experienced so much on my plate all at once.
Overlapping coaching and consulting contracts…
Iggy undergoing treatment for his Achondroplasia going through numerous hospital visits with countless tests…
And him needing to receive daily injections as part of that (toddlers and needles don’t mix well)…
And on top of that, the lease on the house we’d been renting for 7 years came to completion, meaning find a new home.
We decided to buy.
It was time.
For those who aren’t aware, that’s like a part-time job within itself finding your new home, managing the mountain of legal and financial admin and then having to pack and move.
Not once but TWICE.
Yep settlement shifted in the process, meaning find an in-between dwelling and do the whole mission AGAIN one week later.
It felt like each day the universe would just pop something else in the mix.
The hilarious thing is that all of it, in one way or another, we had called in.
Abundant blessings coming into fruition.
It’s just all the blessing came wrapped in a new level of challenge.
I had to manage my energy and focus at the same time as stepping through deep unconscious fears connected to nearly everything in my value system.
My child: How will my boy go with the treatment and the numerous hospital visits for invasive tests?
My Wife: How is she going with her energy, dealing with the hustle and her emotional support for Iggy?
My Home: Will we get the loan or be without a home?
Money: Worry about going into huge debt. Am I ready?
Family: Asking for help!
Business: Managing cash flow during the loan period and maintaining responsibilities with clients and partnerships whilst setting up the next round of business on the other side of the move.
The whole way through I kept calling it…
“The Final Hustle”
I could feel myself being drawn through the eye of a needle.
And the crazy thing is that with contracts signed and all of the above already happening, I couldn’t turn back.
In many ways I was already on the other side, I just had to go through the steps of meeting my future self and facing EVERYTHING necessary to do so.
So I had no choice but to shed A LOT of sh!t – FAST!
Not only did I have to refine my tasks and areas of focus but all the baggage I held onto around the epic list of changes happening.
Each one deep trigger around wealth, abundance, surrender, security, deserving and claiming what I want in the world.
My emotional response to it all was taking up so much room that it had to shift rapidly too.
So I surrendered, trusted, fell into it all with open arms and let the whole tsunami of change take me.
And so I died to my creation.
“Life, just f*cking take me!”
And I kept letting go.
Letting myself break if need be so I could experience each gradual dissipation of holding on.
Each time I let go, another test would emerge AND another jigsaw puzzle piece would fall into place.
Then another, and another.
The universe reminding me each time the reward of letting go.
All the pieces started adding up and coming together.
Slowly but surely.
So finally the news arrived – we got the house!
(Iggy still sings the song we sang the night we found out).
The Friday before Christmas we moved.
But it didn’t end then – Christmas, family etc and still the busyness ensued – and then it ended.
Shortly after the silly season, I started to drop in.
Like drop right in – proper holiday style pottering and tinkering joyfully with a power drill in the first home I’ve actually owned.
It was like I woke up in a new reality.
After a series of sunset beers overlooking the epic land around us, it started to dawn on me what had happened…
I noticed that I had been dropped in the middle of 7 volcanoes in a part of the world I have fantasized about living in for over a decade.
I noticed that the area I live in is like a huge storybook. It has all these exciting chapters of adventure waiting in the forests, the trees, the creek, the swimming holes and the collective magic of the country.
I dropped in and noticed how relieved I felt to finally have a patch of land in a dream location and an address of my own in the universe.
I had always wanted to own my own home in the country. Just me and my loved ones in nature with space, trees, adventure and the stars all around us at night.
And when I dropped in I welled with gratitude at the acknowledgment that finally – IT IS SO!
To be honest I could not have orchestrated it as well as the creative forces of the universe had.
The letting go was part of the process.
I had the visions but I had to let go and relinquish control.
I had to let the parts fall into place without meddling, instead just responding as needed.
And now on the other side, I can look at the fullness of the puzzle picture and see the perfection of what was coming together.
The whole experience has made me look at how I operate and how I create (or merge with Creation perhaps).
Not so much from the perspective of what I “call in” but how I respond to it manifesting and how I believe it’s possible to create.
Hustle has been a part of the program for a long time, I always placed it in there alongside my creation – hence it existed.
I always hated it – or so I thought – but a part of me must’ve fucking loved it!
I see it now as a response to the holding on.
Like you can be busy without it f*cking with you.
AND you can simply create without hustling as well.
Was The Final Hustle from last year necessary?
I certainly burnt through a bucket load of karma in the process fitting through the eye of that needle.
And that I definitely needed.
Unresolved shit just needed to be let go or it was simply not going to come together.
Not without pain at least.
On the other side of it all, I have more space.
I found that amongst the hustle and competing priorities (which I became used to) that I had reduced the amount of time I spent actually on my business.
Now with a lot the change behind us, there is more space in life.
I have an aversion to unnecessary work.
An increased need to be more present for Iggy – I won’t get his early childhood back and it’s magic.
And with more time for my boy, it means my wife can spend more time for herself away from him.
I now have a desire to create more easily through allowance, surrender, and self-love.
I also have some lingering physical issues hanging around from The Last Hustle reminding me to maintain the new pace.
My 3 intentions now are…
Simplification, Love and Abundance.
It’s my primary focus to cultivate these things in my life and create from the blend of these.
And I can see it showing up in my life.
I finish work early most Fridays and take every Thursday morning off to take Iggy to the music group.
The space to spend time with my son enriches me.
Just today on the way back we stopped around the corner to observe the view of the hills and old volcanoes around us. Having that moment to share the joy of adventure and to see 2 eagles barely meters in front of us is priceless.
Am I done with Hustle? Let’s see.
What I can say is that I now create in a much more non-attached, more loving and trusting way.
I can’t not after my recent creative dance with the universe.
I also am ready to create from abundance and flow rather than from lack and desperation.
More than anything I have learned to let go more.
Just state what I need and let go.
Thank you for creating what I asked for years ago in a way more perfect than I could have.
Thank you for it coming in a way I would probably not expect.
Thank you for showing me how hard it can be (or how hard I can make it).
Show me just how easy it can be to create my hearts deepest soul desires.
In the meantime, I’m going to play with my boy ☺
