Many years ago, I received what in my mind was a pointed, undeniable message from God to leave my corporate career behind and go back to my roots (my abilities as a healer and intuitive). At the time, a variety of "supportive" people try to convince me that I was either being foolish to leave the corporate world, or at the very least, I needed to accept the fact that no one made a full time living as an alternative healer.
After carefully weighing their view of the world, as if I was holding a weight in one hand, and then weighing the message from God in the other hand, I say a couple of times "You, God, You, God." After doing that, I told them I would listen to God, and if God let me down, I would be back to see what they thought. God didn't let me down.
A couple of years later, I got a message from God to sell everything I owned and go on the road. I was told I was needed there. Of course a variety of "supportive" people, some the same, some different, told me I was being self-sabotaging. They felt that I could not handle being successful in my career on a local level and other such things. Again I chose God, and everything in my life bloomed and went to the next level over those two and a half years when I was living out of my car and traveling around the country doing healing work, channeling, and teaching.
The list goes on, but most recently, when I knew God's guidance was saying it was time to take my messages out to the larger world through podcasting, radio and TV, again I had faith. I agreed, and the next thing you know, I had an offer from a small start-up podcasting company. When they struggled, I moved out on my own, taking another leap of faith. I was told I was being distracted from my real work, I was told that my radio program was a hobby and it really wasn't work, but I knew differently and went from doing a program once a week to five days a week. Through the programs, I was working to help people to see and be spiritually aware, empowering people in their daily life, and helping them to see the world through a spiritual lens (not a rose colored one). Once again, I felt like I was listening to my guidance, and once again, God did not let me down.
Two weeks ago, I was approached by Voice America Radio because they wanted to syndicate my radio show. My exposure would go up from the 40,000-50,000 listeners a month I now have to around 700,000 on the 7th Wave, their spiritual channel, the fastest growing channel in their network. The contracts have been signed. Starting Monday October 19th @ 2-3 PST, there will be thirteen weeks of "Best of Outside The Box with Dr Kevin." Then in January 2010, I will be going live. Dara Jane will be my regular co-host for the program, and Dr Lyn will begin our day with the Planetary Influences of the week.
When following your passion and listening to your guidance from Spirit and the "supportive" ones show up, just do like I did; put your two hands in front of you and start weighing, "You, God, You God," and tell those who discourage you from following God's guidance, "I will listen to God and if God lets me down, then I will be back to see what you think."
