Life Lessons from the Flying Trapeze

Imagine with me, looking up in the sky to the flying trapeze artists; watch them swing and flip and fly through the air. Watch the one person let go of her bar and fly across space before being caught by her partner.

It’s so magical to watch, it’s fun and exciting. But did you ever think about what is really happening way up there above? Do you realize that she has to physically, literally and energetically let go of her bar before she can fly through space and be caught by someone else?  Free flying.

A few year ago I had the opportunity to do just that. I flew on a trapeze and yes, even let go and was caught by my partner. It was the most frightening and exhilarating thing I had ever done. Think about the process for a moment.  First you have to climb up a gigantic rope ladder, you have to stand on a very small platform up, feels like miles, in the air. Then you have to jump off the platform, then let go of the bar.

There is mighty trust involved and a willingness to simply do what you are told immediately. There was an instructor on the ground that led the commands. The instruction was to do it immediately, because it is all about timing. And so I did.  I listened, and I did the required action immediately. It was the only way to do it. If I’d thought for even a split second about what was next, I would have frozen in time, missed the opportunity and deemed myself a failure for all time.

My point today, however, is that sometimes you have to let go of your good in order to move into a greater good. And sometimes there is a gap between them, the space between the bars, the moment between letting go and being caught. It can be a split second, but can feel like eternity.

Where is all the good you have keeping you from an even greater good?  Perhaps you have a good job, one that you wanted and loved, but now it is keeping you from the next level of expansion?  Perhaps you reached a goal and were quite happy there, but now something else is calling you. You don’t want to let go, but you want to experience more.

The more is the inherent nature of the universe, the calling, the aspiration for more experience, more purpose, more passion, more love. The process of receiving more involve the process of letting go.

I’ve been an ordained minister for over 16 years, and last year, I had to let it go, in order to step into a fuller expression of who I’m here to be and who I’m becoming. I’ve been teaching a phenomenal program called Prosperity Plus for over a year and I love it! My students, (and me, too) have grown and expanded in amazing ways. It’s been one of my favorite all time courses to teach.

Now, it’s time to let that go. I’ve been telling my students and inviting them into the next, last session of this course and the question I get again and again is, Why? Why is this the last time?

The simple answer is that it is time for me to teach my own work, to step even more fully into who I am becoming and develop my own courses. It’s time to step away from the safety net of teaching someone else’s work – even as brilliant as it is.  I’m in a business coaching group and I was recently talking to them about this work.

They called me out. First, why are you teaching for someone else and second, why is the price point so low. Through the course of discussion and deep, in my face coaching, I came to the decision to let it go. Even though I love it, even though it is good for my students, even though it works for me on so many levels. It keeps me playing on the same level. It keeps me from shining my own brilliance. It keeps me safe and secure.

So, here I go, letting go of one more trapeze bar, the one of my favorite course of all time and flying through the air – wondering yet, what might show up next.

My invitation to you is this.  Will you join me in the last session of Prosperity Plus!?  Will you help make this the best course ever in the history of teaching it? Will you take advantage of me, teaching Mary Morrissey’s work one last time?

I promise you, it will change your life!  I promise you, you will gain something grand in the process! It is a commitment program, so it will stretch you and call you into places you have only dreamed about. It is a group dynamic and a sacred container and I’d love to have you there.

If you’ve ever thought about joining, now is the time. If you’ve taken it before and want a refresher, now is the time. If it’s never crossed your awareness to join, now is the time.

 

The next session begins on Monday, July 18, 2016. 

The initial investment is only $39, and the commitment to tithe into the course for the duration of the 10 weeks, to attend each class session (live from the comfort of your computer or phone, wherever you are) and to participate with the class materials. If you do that you will be stepping into a New Way of Living as we discover how to Harness the Invisible Powers.

Will you join me? Will you be part of the good, moving to a greater good?

Meanwhile, what good are you experiencing that is being asked to be released so you can experience a greater good?  Perhaps that is exactly what this course will guide you to!

 

Much love!
