By: Jessi Kohlhagen Where you are is exactly where you need to be. This is 100% true -- but it can be a really tough concept to grasp when we’re feeling impatient or uncertain about something in our lives. We all have things in life that we wish would happen sooner… challenges we wish we could overcome faster… and a vision for our future that we wish we could magically teleport right into. But the universe doesn’t work that way, and we are often required to summon enormous amounts of trust and patience as we follow the path toward our greatest dreams and ambitions. This has been the *big* lesson in my life over the past few months. While I feel like my inner evolution has been accelerated to super-speed, the rest of my world is struggling to catch up and manifest all of my heart’s bigger and better plans for my life, and the world. This can be incredibly disheartening. It can bring up feelings of doubt, fear, and frustration -- and leave us feeling even less capable of creating the change we wish to see. That is, until we understand the essential reasoning for it all. This is where divine timing comes in… and understanding how it works is the key that unlocks absolute abundance.

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” -Christopher Reeve
What is the Hero’s Journey?
The Hero’s Journey is a cycle – a “there and back again” quest through the crucial events that make, or break, a hero. Mythological researcher Joseph Campbell coined the phrase, after studying myths from all over the world and publishing the book, “The Hero with A Thousand Faces.” So why is this important? Because it’s what all great accomplishments are made of. No matter who you are, where you come from, what you’re trying to create, or what you fear most – someone has done it before you. We all walk a similar path, and identifying the steps on that path can give you insight into where you’ve been, and what you have yet to face. “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” -Joseph Campbell So ask yourself – where are you in the hero’s journey?
