I was directed to take a break and listen to my heart’s desire and sense of what it needs to be free. I felt it was about the ‘me time’ to PAUSE and listen quietly to my truth.
Now I am off PAUSE, after attending a spiritual retreat where I focused on opening my heart greater to our divine source. I came home fully alive and inspired and pulled out one of my ‘life purpose’ cards and then this question came so unexpectedly and without reason. At least I thought (!)
What do I truly desire?
Well, I had to think about this and hard. I felt I had done enough decision making and taking inspired action to raise the bar for myself so I could have the freedom to travel and work from anywhere I please. However, it wasn’t the answer! Then I remembered my reason for going in to business was to have financial freedom and more choice. Nope(!) This didn’t sit well either. I have the penthouse, travel overseas twice a year, cruise the Mediterranean, drive a BMW, earn a great income, and YET felt at a loss to what my answer could be.
I believe I have what most aspire. Was it that I was missing an internal balance? Am I here to seek greater joy and happiness? Maybe? And if so, how do I do this let alone explain this? How is happiness communicated as it can be experienced differently to every one of us?
For anyone who has not experienced the greatest joy happiness — the lightness and calm, where does one start?
How does one gain that internal trust — a knowing without doubt or glimmer of disbelief?
Our lives are so ingrained with taking planned actions and trying to manifest what we believe is necessary to live a happy fulfilled life. It is this control safety mechanism borne out of our ego. It is in the busy-ness that where we become lost. It is this uncertainty where we begin to question – Is this all there is?
Now comes a time where the soul needs to shut out the noise to listen to the quiet. It is here where the Divine can give us its best guidance and to experience the joy and calmness. It is a process of letting go of the voices in our heads. To surrender (that vulnerability that most of us avoid)
Here are four principles to assist in surrendering and quieting the mind.
–Awareness begins with knowing yourself – it requires a deep search into who you are and what you have to offer. It progresses through a deepening sense of appreciation, respect, and gratitude for YOU.
–Acknowledgement that it whatever is shown that it is okay(!) It is always okay without judgement or scrutiny.
–Acceptance of who you are with respect and gratitude – by accepting the anguish and vulnerability – only then can we offer a gift that is both accepted and appreciated.
When this happens all conflict will fall away in every decision, each thought, each activity…. where you longer are making decisions from an ego place that keeps us separate. Instead, everything begins with and ends here. Doubt is no longer a part or a choice. One becomes one’s truth. You become aligned and your truth is centered. It is here you will find your answers.
This has been difficult for me because the answers are not always the ones I want to hear but they were meant to be heard with acceptance. And in this there is truth, joy and happiness.Like the Post - Leave me a message at https://www.passionandpossibilities.com/voice-message Or add to the post as I would love to hear your story.
