Expectant Faith

“Expectancy is confidently knowing that something good is unfolding and anticipating its arrival. God is my source. There is no lack in the kingdom and nothing is beyond the goodness of God. While others may speak of gloom and lack in the world, I expect the abundance of Spirit. With faith, I expect my good and claim it now.” Daily Word

As I thought about God calling me to move to Hawaii for 6 months, I realized that it has been a process that has been unfolding for over a year – maybe my whole life time. My intention over the next few months is to share with you a glimpse of my personal journey of stepping out in faith so that you can step out in faith, take a risk and take action to live your dreams.

I met Ellen (my earth angel) in June 2010 after speaking at her church in E. Greenwich, RI. She invited me to stay with her at her condo overlooking the ocean in Maui, Hawaii. I took her up on her offer and spent 2 weeks with her in November 2010. When I was leaving, she gave me a card that read “Keep the vision of coming back to Hawaii.”

A couple of months after meeting Ellen, I had an intuitive reading on the phone from a woman whom I had never met. She asked “Are you planning a trip soon?” I responded, “Yes, I am going to Hawaii in a couple of months.” She said, “Hawaii is going to be the nucleus of something really big and you will be moving.” That is all I remember about the reading, but it stayed close in my heart.

I spent the month of September at Ellen’s condo while she traveled with her family to Europe. While there, I had several speaking engagements and met incredibly powerful women who had been called to Maui to live. They said, “Mother Maui is calling you and needs your energy.” It is hard to describe the feminine energy in Maui that pervaded my whole being. I felt like I was in an altered state for most of my stay. It is this energy that is reawakening feminine balancing energy to the world and I am so grateful that God is calling me back to Maui.

Even before going to Maui, I knew something in my business had shifted, but I didn’t know what it was and it was scary. Deep within, I knew I was being prepared for something major to change in my life. I was learning not to push things, but to allow things to unfold naturally.

It was during my prayer while in Maui, I asked God, “What is the next chapter in my life?” Something shifted deep inside me and I started to think “Why can’t I come back here to teach, speak and coach?” What is stopping me from living my dream and moving to Maui? Nothing. For the next couple of weeks before returning home, I prayed and meditated and asked for signs that it was God calling me to Maui and not just my ego. I prayed daily with Goddess cards and each day I received powerful cards affirming that it was Mother Maui calling me back.

I came home and announced to my family and friends that I was moving to Maui in January for 6 months. Now that is stepping out in faith because I need to rent my condo for 6 months, find a place to live in Maui for free and find work. I immediately took action and started to advertise my condo to nearby colleges, hospitals and on Craigslist. God knows what I need and I am trusting that every detail is already done in the mind of God.

I am acting “as if” it has already happened. I am cleaning out my condo from top to bottom and making space for my new right and perfect tenant. I am letting go of the old and packing my personal things that mean so much to me (my angels.) I am praying for my new tenant that she/he will find peace and healing in my sacred space. It would be easier to do all this if I already had a tenant to rent my condo and a place to live in Maui, but that is not what faith is about to me.

I know I am following God and my heart’s desire because of the peace I have in my heart. Yes, I sometimes feel afraid, but I feel it and do it anyway. I feel like I am enveloped in God’s grace and love at this time in my life. I am grateful and stay focused on the positive. I feel the joy of returning to Mother Maui.

I just received this email as I finished this divine download:

“On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know that safety is not the thing you should look for in the future. Joy is what you should look for. Security and joy may not come in the same package. They can…but they also cannot.  There is no guarantee. If your primary concern is a guarantee of security, you may never experience the truest joys of life. This is not a suggestion that you become reckless, but it is an invitation to at least become daring.”
