“People want to know about their purpose, why are they here on the planet? It’s the question that won’t go away, because the answer reveals that we are here to wake up, to discover our true nature—our gifts, talents and capacities—and to express them. That’s why we’re here”. Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith
It’s not a good feeling to be unhappy and not know what you really want in life, especially when from the outside, it looks like you have everything!
You say you don’t know what you want.
The TRUTH is that you do know what you want, but you are afraid:
- that you might not be allowed to have it,
- saying it out loud would totally change your life,
- you aren’t worthy of “it”,
- you will be abandoned,
- name your fear of why you won’t acknowledge what you really want.
You are wondering if I say it, if I dare choose it, it’s going to change my life, but am I up for that?
That change that you fear is called growth or evolution and human beings are meant for more growth throughout our lives. And it’s connected with our purpose, why we are here.
So how can you change your life when:
- Your husband left you and you are too “old” to start over.
- Your kids have grown and gone off to college and now you don’t really know what to do.
- Your company downsized and you find yourself at a crossroad wondering what to do next.
- You are on your 3rd boss and it’s just not working out.
- You are having health challenge totally unexpected and now what?
- You have no time
- The issue you are facing now
Life is life and often doesn’t go the way we want or expect it to. Resistance and fear will come up when faced with something new.
You can rush around trying to change your circumstances or your situation or the people in your life – like rush into another relationship, start volunteering or take a part time job to fill up your time, quickly starting a new job search, or rush from doctor to doctor, move houses, whatever changes your circumstances.
You can have the cancer cut out, you can divorce the man you hated, you can move away from your parents and siblings, you can go all out and lose the weight,
And when the day is done, you are still you… the same you that created the situation you are in that you wanted to change. Chances are, when the dust settles, you will find nothing has really changed but the scenery.
To change anything in your life, it starts with your thinking. Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality.
That means if you want your life to change, you have to do the INNER work.
Right now, the life you have is a match to who you are – your thoughts, beliefs, how you perceive life and the world. If you want something different, your thoughts must match that which you desire to be, do and have in your life.
Any other way and I will tell you – “Where ever you go, there you are.”
Living a life you absolutely LOVE is not wishful thinking. It is necessary for great health, loving relationships, feeling fulfilled and on purpose, and living an abundant life with time and money for the things that matter most to you. People who live with purpose are far happier, less stressed, and live longer than those who don’t.
No one knows how long they have in this precious gift called life.
Isn’t it time to experience LIFE even more fully and start identifying and moving towards a life you truly love?
