We ARE free beings. And one of the gifts of freedom is to be unique, to make choices and to learn and experience life, in our own individual and unique way. Isn't that what freedom is?
We are called to be great, and to do great things, when come into this plane of existence. We are each called with a unique and special purpose and we are to show up in that purpose. Throughout our lives, we are nudged to do more through life lessons--the good and the not so good. And even at some point in our journey we may realize that the not so good, really was a good! In fact, it may have been a life changing lesson. Because even in the “not so good”, there is a lesson that we needed to go through in order to be suited up and prepared to do what we’ve come to do.
Another choice we have is to either answer our calling to our true selves, or allow others to tell us who and what we are--just following the bouncing ball to someone else’s music.
Sometimes we receive these calls as an idea, a flittering thought, or a spoken word. You may get a nudge to follow up and do something about it. But, somehow we just may not get around to following the nudge. And then the idea shows up again, or you see someone else doing it, and think, “I knew I should have gotten started on that, I‘ve had that same idea for years.” And the nudges become increasingly more painful. We can experience this when we are involved in something for too long, and we have heard the call and felt the nudges, and we still don't listen to them. Then we are finally “knocked” out of our comfort zone and put into a position where we must do something.
These nudges are our “Things to Do” on our life goal planning. They are calls for us to take life to the next level. Even during the time we are sensing these nudges, discontent, and discomfort, we are standing at the doorway to that life journey. Our passion awaits us at this doorway and wants to be born through us.
They bring us to a point where we question and re-evaluate our lives, and we get a chance to pull off the road of life for a whil--to be still, go within and know--before going back on this ever busy freeway of life. We just need to get the ego out of the way, so that we can hear and then Answer the call…the nudge.
What do you daydream about? Let your passion awaken within you and take flight, bring it to life by breathing life into it. What gives you joy, pleasure? Awaken into your True Self; Give your gift to the world. The world is waiting for you and it needs you.
If you go through life without knowing and living your purpose, you have missed the point--the whole purpose of why we are here. I believe the greatest discontent in life is not having a purpose.
There have also been studies that indicate greater purpose in life is associated with a longer life among community-dwelling older people. A person with high purpose in life is about half as likely to die over a follow-up period compared to a person with low purpose. It was concluded that a life with goal directedness, contributes to successful aging.”
Living your life purpose is like putting on a suit that fits every area of your body to a “T”. It feels comfortable with room to move, flex and grow. It is tailor made to fit your body type, your personality. Put on your suit and show up for the Job Description that has been given to you.
So how do we discover this purpose of yours?
Ask yourself what gives you pleasure. Find that answer and immerse yourself in it, become it. You will find that the Universe will provide you with all the people, all the information, and all the Wisdom you need in order to do it. This is a confirmation that you are on the right track, so far. You will begin to feel joy with each confirmation. Just remember to check in when you are at a point of choice, or when you feel another “nudge“.
Visioning assists us to get in touch with answers by sensing and feeling it, just like trying on that new suit, and seeing yourself wear it. See yourself living your passion, and how the world responds to your gift you bring to it. Be It!
So don't die with a could have, should have, would have on your heart. This is the moment, the NOW moment, while your music is still playing.
Find your passion and be bold and daring in doing it. The Universe has your back. Don't be afraid of criticism. Don't let it paralyze you. Often the things others are putting upon you are their very own fears, beliefs, insecurities and limitations that come from their own backgrounds and beliefs about life. After all, this is your journey, and your journey alone and they are living their journey.
Whatever you do, if you enjoy it, and feel as if you are doing what you want to do in life, and it gives you passion--then do IT! And do it with boldness and with confidence that you are fulfilling your purpose. Do it, soar in it, and know that whatever your intention is in doing it, the Universe has your back, and it will lift you up, and therefore, lift others who you share your gift with. Know that you are fulfilling your role in this thing called life, and that you are serving your purpose in this role calling.
What’s calling your name?
Your life purpose is waiting on you and wants to be birthed and expressed through you.
Show up and live your role in life and do it while you are in this plane of expression, and while your music is still playing within you.
