Don’t you think you can save you?

I had a consult the other day and what I do as a Shamanic guide/coach is teach you how to save your own ass and never need me or someone like me again. I find this song for me is one I sing to myself when I am up in the air and feeling as though this is the conversation I need to have with someone else. The Angel and the Gambler from Iron Maiden to me is the conversation between the higher self and the gambler that is the mind.

Roll of the dice
Take a spin of the wheel
Out of your hands now
So how do you feel but you’re never gonna win
You’d better go back again

How often in life do we see things going right and look for the other shoe to drop?

We set ourselves up for failure when we think like this. Simply because we think positive all the time does not mean shit is not going to go sideways some days. When the moment comes that feels like a kick in the chest, that has you looking at every other time you got knocked down, instead of looking at getting knocked down look at how you got the fuck up every time.

In some pursuits we go back as many times as it takes to get it done.

Do you feel lucky?
Or do you feel scared
Take what luck brings
And the devil may care
But you’re down on your luck
Will the next day bring?

When do you feel lucky?

When things go right.

When do we get scared?

When we think about what can go wrong.

Tomorrow is never set and is always an opportunity.

Adrift on the ocean
Afloat on the daydream
Or lost in a maze
Or blind in the haze
So what does it matter
So why don’t you answer
So why did you send
An angel to mend

There are times in life I found myself totally confused and lost in my life and trying to figure what in the blue holy fuck was going on and why should I even bother any more. We all have these little moments in life. For me I often find myself hearing the words “I was just praying/wishing/hoping/wanting/whatever to have someone like you show up to talk to about this.” I often wonder what the inner dialog is after those conversations as people still wrestle with what we talked about.

Best make decisions
Before it’s too late
Take all your chances
Take all hold of the reins
A roll of the dice
Ahead of the game again

Nothing to lose
But so much to gain
A little danger
It goes without saying
But what do you care
You’re gonna go in the end

I have always lived life at full speed and taking every spontaneous turn that came up for a side adventure on the journey of life. I own every decision I make and let go of every decision I can’t, you know other peoples.

Any time you think you have something to lose, you do. Any time you think you have something to gain, you do.

The only thing in life we have no choice about is death, the rest is optional. We will die at some point. Get the fuck over it and live.

Gate open to heaven
Is ready and waiting
Or straight down to hell
Can go there as well

My view of heaven on earth for me personally includes living away from most of you and hiding out on a small farm or something like that. Somewhere I can e self contained and talk to people when I want to or they find me. For me hell on earth would be living in a large city.

Adjust for your idea of heaven and hell accordingly and realize that’s the result your aiming for as you build your life.

I’ll suffer my craving
My soul not worth saving
So why don’t you go
Just leave well alone

Don’t you think I’m a saviour
Don’t you think I could save you
Don’t you think I could save your life

We can fall into a pit of self doubt and beat the fuck out ourselves better than anyone could ever do it to us.

Look in the mirror and say “I can save my life.”

Repeat this until you truly feel it.
