Listening to your soul whisperings is a connection that is always there but isn’t always heard. Life experiences can color and cloak how you interpret those signs and revelations. I don’t think you have an idea of who you really are or what you really want and why until you shed these layers. Your experiences are not meant to hold you back or limit your opportunities, they are meant to shape and prepare you for your greatness!
It isn’t until after one or possibly a few more heavy hearted experiences that you may start to wonder why your life is going in a direction you really don’t desire. Why do you keep ending up in relationships or situations that aren’t bringing out the best in you and why doesn’t it feel right in your heart?
Soul searching, silencing your mind and embracing the stillness so you can hear and feel your soul is the only way to true meaning and fulfillment. Once you begin to understand why and how you process your challenges you will find yourself thirsting to pursue this greater sense of clarity in all areas of your life and that will lead you to your true purpose.
When you know you know
This heightened awareness will come in at a time in your life when you are ready to move into a state of openness and willingness to look at where you’ve been to find a better path to where you’re going. Suddenly things start to become very clear and past issues that once held you back no longer carry the weight they did. The desire to let go of that which no longer serves you to embrace a more peaceful way of living comes to the forefront of your thoughts and you realize this is your crossroad.
Do I continue down this same path which isn’t really inspiring me with peace and happiness?
Or do I blaze a new trail?
These are your life changing moments and they propel you onto a new path, one that will allow you to get in touch with what really matters to you, which is really the most important question you can ask yourself. I would bet that the answer your ego would give versus the answer your soul would have would be as different as night and day. The ego wants you to feel fear and believe that you are unworthy, unlovable or cursed, that everything you hope or want for is unattainable and you don’t deserve it anyway. The soul wants you to know you are worthy, loved endlessly and have insurmountable opportunities ahead to chart any path you desire. When you are in alignment with your soul you will find your way to your true destiny, all the happiness you seek, the luxury of authentic/true connection with others and a sense of peace which all I can say is Zen!
True Meaning, hearing the voice within
What matters most?
What do you really want?
I think when you get to this place your thoughts are recharged and you begin to evaluate the things that matter most to you. You gain a new perspective and recognition for certain pieces of your life that shouldn’t have carried on for so long which allows you to finally let them go. You start to realize how much time you’ve wasted on experiences that shouldn’t have been giving so much of your power away. This isn’t to say that what weighs on your heart, mind or soul doesn’t matter but rather how much does it matter for you to lose precious time over or hold yourself back from having new and more healthier experiences that truly connect with your heart.
True Fulfillment, honoring the voice within
What inspires me?
Is it too late?
Heeding the call and allowing your inner voice to be acknowledged knowing how vulnerable that may leave you is a little frightening but in a good way. I think many view vulnerability as weakness but it is actually pure strength, it takes more strength to be vulnerable than it does to hide behind a false face. Vulnerability, while scary at times is also quite exhilarating because there is nothing left to bare, one cannot strip you down any further once you are already fully exposed so it allows you to increase your strength from your core.
Do you see what I see?
That door closed, stop staring at it, turn around and see the open window! Every ending has its sadness but it is also the beginning of something new, change is around the corner and if you spend too much time staring at that closed door you may miss noticing the window of opportunity that has opened just for you. Far too often we spend too much time focusing on what we had, what we’ve lost, what we sacrificed, what could have been different, all good points but what are you going to do now to change your direction? Your answers are connected to discovering what true meaning and true fulfillment mean for you, for me it means never giving up, never giving in and keeping my faith in all the things I have dreamed about. I am not a Dreamer, I am a Visionary!
New Year, New Life
I had thought that 2017 was going to be “the year” and as I’ve come to realize I think it was “the year” but not for the reasons I had initially thought, it was restless and the struggle to move forward seemed like one step forward, two steps back at times but I am labeling it the “year of enlightenment” and 2018 will produce the changes and manifestations of that enlightenment in a very positive way!
Everyone has their own special gifts, opportunities and magical connections destined but this is only after you’ve done your work. Sometimes when the opportunities come along you are in a funk and it’s just not going to happen and then when you feel you are ready the opportunity is no longer there. Don’t worry you didn’t miss it what is meant for you will never pass you by, if something didn’t happen at a time when you expected or wanted it’s because it really was not meant for you.
Everything happens for a reason and everything comes to you at the exact right moment so do your work, be ready and keep dreaming!
From Now to Zen ,,,,,, it’s a Love Thing
