UNIVERSAL LAW SERIES – UNIVERSAL LAW OF ACTION:
“It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through.” ~ Zig Ziglar
The Universal Law (UL) we are connecting with this month is the UL of Action, which says, “No matter what we feel or know, no matter what our potential gifts or talents, only action brings them to life.”
This shows us the importance of action steps as a way of bringing consciousness into physical form. Our movement towards our desire stirs the pot so to speak of those subatomic particles having them begin to move – connect and build into physical form our manifestation and experiences. Showing us that we must work with the other Laws through inspired action.
This isn’t about struggling – please hear that!
If you are struggling to have what you want, it means you are not aligned with what you want. It may be because we are programmed to focus on what we don’t have or the gap between where we are and where we want to be or collapsing inspired action with “do-ing”.
The UL of Action insists we to take a proactive role in creating our life. It isn’t about leaving the other Principles and Laws behind, it is a foundational step – giving our actions purpose. Adding aligned inspired action to our desires builds momentum, bringing your creations into reality more quickly.
There may be times it feels like “hard” work or doing “hard” things, yet if we focus on our purpose, our why, it may seem challenging, and utilizing these ULs will support the ease of the challenge. When we can lead our lives through inspired action every day, that gap between where we are and what we want to experience will be shortened. Without action we are frozen – like a deer in the headlights.
In my years of studying UL, I have always felt a sense of stability, even security in the way these principles and Laws are interwoven. The conversation of action was a subtle and interesting one that I needed to untangle for myself – because so much of my upbringing and training was based and judged on my actions of doing. This is why the UL Action is so powerful – it helps you to rewire your brain to understand the difference between inspired action and simply “do-ing”. Running around being busy doesn’t mean your manifestations will happen sooner.
On the other side of the stick is our resistance to taking action. Most of us have experienced at some time in our lives resistance to action. We allow resistance to block us by giving in to procrastination or we push through the resistance with an energy of force that then creates an even stronger neural pathway alignment with struggle, doing, and effort. When something feels heavy or forced, take a step back, pause, take a breath and ask for clarity. Set a pause time limit, tune in, and follow with your intuition.
And remember, if we sit still after receiving that spark of inspired action from the Divine within us – what happens is an equaled lack of motion which means the dreams as well as our inspiration stays dormant and unrealized.
When we act from a place of “being” rather than “doing,” everything flows with grace and ease. We are able move from one step to the next with clarity of purpose, clear about what needs to be handled in any given moment. We do not get overwhelmed because we come to trust that we will remember or know what to do when the time is right.
Action is where we can get tripped up on living Universal Laws. Because our culture is so focused on the outward expression of how things look. If you look busy, then you must be important, valuable, worthy. If you look like you’re struggling, others will think you have valor, bravery, and are courageous.
This Law teaches us how to act with purpose – that every action – every breath, every step we take is with purpose and creates energy
This potent Law tells us action activates energy into motion, which is a necessary step in the manifestation process. Action means directing your energy and taking the inspired steps towards your desired outcome, your inspired goal.
So many times, you may start taking action, but then give up before it has a chance to come into being. Does this show up in your life?
Maybe it is because you want everything ‘now’, or you get discouraged when you don’t see any evidence or results. This is where some folks stop. They give up, thinking that Universal Laws “don’t work,” and instead take on their old beliefs and ways of being – removed from their manifestations.
That’s how we’ve been trained – cultured to think. And acting while feeling uncertain creates more wobble. This is where we can utilize the Divine I AM connection – to shift an old perspective to see that it is truly the Divine animating you – bringing you and your personality to life – so any action is Divine – even if it is an action that you regret. Still a lesson – an experience that heightened your awareness.
Taking action takes belief, faith, discipline, mental power and persistent dedication. It is a commitment that requires energy, endurance and focus! And we can DO IT!
Here’s to inspired action!
