What are your dreams? What do you really, really want for yourself? A new house? New car? Sure, those are all nice things, but that’s not even close to how much you could have! Just admit it, you want something even more. So let’s think even BIGGER.
If you could become anything, what would it be? Imagine your perfect day. From the moment you wake up until you rest your head on your pillow, what would make you feel fulfilled and vibrant?
You’ve heard it before, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Isn’t that what you really want? To never have to work a day in your life? You want to feel like all of your gifts and talents are being utilized everyday, and you want to feel the pure joy of your soul everEXPANDING. So, let’s get started.
“If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
What if I told you that your dreams are not a mistake? Your ambitions were made uniquely for you. Your wishes are a roadmap to the Devine life purpose that only you can fulfill.
So why does it seem so hard to just do what we love? We block ourselves from expanding when we let the ego guide us. When tell ourselves that it is too much money to go back to school, that is the ego holding us back. When we say we don’t have time right now and we will do it when we are older; that’s the ego trying to keep us self-contained. We procrastinate and talk ourselves out of our dreams all the time, but I am here to encourage you that you don’t have to listen to the ego anymore! You can start fulfilling your dreams right now.
So, instead of tapping into the ego’s voice, let’s learn how to listen to our Higher Self. The Higher Self is our cheerleader. It is the deepest part of us that never changes and knows exactly what we were put on this Earth to do. Wayne Dyer taught me how to tell the difference between the ego’s voice and the higher, impersonal self. That little voice in your head that starts with “I,” that’s your ego. “I can’t do it right now.” “I don’t know how…” The little voice in your head that starts with “you,” that’s your Higher Self talking. “You can do this.” “You are beautiful, creative and unique.” “You need to get out there!” We all have inner dialogue going through our minds ALL day. So next time you are thinking, try to listen to what you are telling yourself. Try to shift from “I” and start listening to the cheerleader in your mind that KNOWS you can do anything you dream.
“Wayne Dyer taught me how to tell the difference between the ego’s voice and the higher, impersonal self.”
I started listening to Hay House radio this summer. I was so inspired by speakers like Doreen Virtue and Barbara D’Angelos. They helped me to realize that we all have a light inside of us that the world needs. We came here to expand our souls. So how do you do that?! You listen to your Higher Self and do what you love. It is that simple.
So, what did my Higher Self tell me I needed to do? I needed to pursue feng shui. I loved doing it so much in my own home, and I needed to get certified to share it with others. Then, I learned about the Hay House Writers workshop, and I realized I needed to share my knowledge and story. You are a writer. You need to write a book. So that’s exactly what I am doing! I am just listening to the next step and going with it. Something inside of me knew I needed to be a school leader, so I am back in graduate school for my Masters… I am not sharing this for bragging rights by any means. I am sharing this to let you know that truly ANYTHING is possible if it is your life purpose. You just need to take the first step, and the rest will fall into place. If it is meant to be, you will make time for it, and you will love it too!
I’m not saying quit your job just yet, but I am suggesting that you make it a priority to do what you love a little bit each day. For me, that means I need to write a little each day. I need to talk about feng shui on my Facebook page each day… I don’t know where these steps will lead, but I know I love doing it. Maybe that something you love is painting, or writing, or creating music. Whatever that something is, you can make it a priority to do it a little each day. See where the baby steps take you. Eventually you could make a living doing it, but you have to start NOW. (Not tomorrow. I mean today. Like after you read this… Now.)
“…Make it a priority to do what you love a little bit each day.”
You see, we all have grand dreams-like changing careers or moving into our dream house- but God doesn’t just leap frog you from now to the fruition of your dreams in an instant. God, the Universe (or whatever you connect with), helps you reach the fulfillment of your dreams by telling you what you can do right now, in this moment. No matter how mundane the step may be, take it today. A bunch of little steps will lead you to that big dream. You have the ability to make it happen already. So stop procrastinating, and do what you love. Now.
Until Next Time,
