Of Stardust + Audacious Cosmic Energy

This whole week has been about being audacious and living out loud at full volume. Like, eardrum-piercing, blood-throbbing volume. Fuelled purely by your intuition and the fact that you’re simply brimming with cosmic energy, dahling.
audacious (adj):
  1. extremely bold or daring; recklessly brave; fearless
  2. extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive
  3. recklessly bold in defiance of convention, propriety, law, or the like; insolent; brazen
  4. lively; unrestrained; uninhibited 
You are made of stardust. You are here to revel in colour and energy. You are here to live every single day. Believe that.
If you ask me what I came to this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.
Emile Zola
Incandescent inker Nikki Groom wrote a post that made me sit up and PAY ATTENTION: Indecision Is Brutal was a wake-up call like no other. Packed with gorgeous goodness and one soul-scorching line after the other, it made me ask one simple question: WTF was I doing dithering so much?
Why wasn’t I out there acting on my truth? Why wasn’t I lighting up the universe with my personal brand of magic? And more importantly, why are we so hesitant to step into our power?
While I was still chewing over Nikki’s words 2 days later, I read You’re Genius. Didn’t You Know? by Danielle Dowling last night. Danielle spoke my language and drummed home the message that it’s time to explode onto the scene. Now.NOW. Not tomorrow or next week.
Well, I don’t know about you but it definitely seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something. Not just me either, but you, you, you, and you. Everyone who reads this blog and the posts above. That message is simply this:
Be bold. Fierce. Audacious. Dare to dream so big you can’t imagine how it’ll ever be possible, then make it possible. Dare to have a vision so grand you wonder if you’re not deluding yourself, then knuckle down and work it into existence.
Follow your intuition so audaciously you have no room for doubt and second-guessing. Get out there and make shit happen.
You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.
Sheila Graham
Before you start quaking in your boots and muttering that it’s easy for me to say when I’m not the one who’ll have to make the changes in your life, let me assure you that we’re in this together. There are days I don’t glow with my truth and flow with my intuition. There are days when I fold into myself and let the doubt and fear creep in and stain everything. That’s life and it sure ain’t perfect.
However, the important thing is to act with audacity. Every time. As often and as much as you’re able. Make the pitch. enter the contest. Take a stand. Cast your vote. Speak up. Be heard.
When you decide to be fully alive and engage your senses, get ready for the push back from the part of you that wants to stay safe and small. Oh yeah, it’ll happen. CRUSH it.
You may not be able to help resisting the push to change, but do resist the urge to give up and wander through life without ever getting intentional + clear about your success and what you need to achieve it.
Dare to be gloriously, intensely, fiercely alive. Free your senses to take in the world around you and feel the energy pulsing in your core. Fill your days with passion and colour and actions that take you closer to who + where you wanna be.
This is your life. This is your time. Own it.
