There are two questions I’ve been asking myself and my students daily this summer.
The two questions are:
▪ What do you want to bring into your life?
▪ What are you ready to be free of?
What is it you want?
It’s likely not a thing. Something we all strive for is more peace, and more joy.
What is it that you want to be free of?
For most of us, freedom comes from releasing self-limiting judgments, outdated fears, and resistance to change.
I was at a celebration last night in a beautiful seaside village. The woman I was sitting with remarked, “you’re lucky you’ve found something that makes you happy. That is rare.”
My first thought was how sad it was that she considered happiness to be rare. I told her that I felt everyone knows what makes them happy, it’s just that we’ve lost our ability to listen to our inner guidance. She looked at me incredulously, “do you really believe that?” “I really don’t know what my life’s passion is.”
It’s difficult to find your passion when you look for it outside yourself. You forget the internal wisdom available to you in every moment. My next online course, Breakthrough Your Blocks, launching September 2016, helps you overcome what blocks you from your joy.
If you continue to seek answers outside yourself, you’ll never be fulfilled.To experience greater fulfillment you must commit to making decisions that feel right to you.The second you let judgment creep in, it’s over.
Can you get better at trusting your instincts?
You don’t have to impulsively act on every insight that comes to you, but pay attention to what you’re being guided to do.
Stop looking for someone else to identify your passions and your dreams.
You’ve known all along what brings you joy. Keep guiding yourself towards whatever that is.
Start recording your insights and review them regularly. Use your phone or carry around a small pocket size notebook. It might shock you to see how much wisdom you’ve been ignoring.
The answer has been there all along.
