Times are changing. Not long ago, we could get by in this world living from our set of rules or guidelines of how we needed to be in order to be successful and loved in this world. This is no longer the case we are all being pushed to find our innate or true self within us.
Who are you underneath all of the rules and structures that you have learned to live your life by? Do you love the job you do? Are you excited about life? Does your heart sing at the prospects of your day?
These questions may help you unearth a little of your true essence. What is it you would rather be doing? Don’t go to that place of, I can’t because ………whatever your reasons may be.
We have all been human doings for long enough now! We have all been living an unfulfilled life for many reasons. It is time to move beyond your reasons and find the dynamic, amazing you!
It is definitely a process this thing called happiness! In order to feel happy inside, it is about connecting to your true inner flow. As most of you know, accumulating things, whether it be money, stuff or recognition does not bring us happiness. Yes life is somewhat easier when one has some money but at a point, that can even become a burden to look after. Happiness flows from inside of us, when we have the space to express who we truly are, our soul feels happy!
Many times the issue is finding the space to express who you are. You may tell yourself you can’t as you are too busy, making money, looking after others or doing a myriad of other things! The trick is to start putting yourself first, carve out a time where you can begin to connect with yourself, this may be through meditation, music, writing, running, dancing or many other activities that you enjoy doing. Making time for you is one of the most important things you can do in life. If you have a family, think about sharing some of the things you like to do, maybe some other family members will enjoy it too.
As you begin to make time for you, your next step may be to get quiet and hear what it is you want inside. Don’t stop your inner exploration by saying I can’t or I don’t know how or I will when I have time. Just note what it is you would rather be doing! I often tell clients, don’t worry about the how or the what, just begin to be aware of your parameters. If we are looking at say what one would like to do for work, you may begin to notice that you enjoy say being outside or working 5 hours a day, or working with people. Be careful not to shut yourself down by saying I can’t do it. Working 5 hours a day may seem impossible to you as you require a great deal more money to make ends meet, just let the thought be there, who knows maybe you will start making 5 times as much money per hour in order to make ends meet. The point is don’t stop the flow of that energy before it even has a chance to see what it can come up with.
The universe is working all the time to assist you in creating what you want. If you shut down your own energy around what you want, it is unable to present you with new ideas and possibilities. Let yourself begin to flow with the energy of who you truly are, make space for you to do this, whether it is through meditation or keeping a journal of your wants and desires. The universe is an amazing place and has all kinds of incredible talents to help us.
Your logic may be telling you right now, what a bunch of hogwash, who has time to do these silly exercises. I have more important things to do. I have a business to run and a family to feed, I have bills and expenses. Know this is your logic trying to keep you small and to believe that you have to work hard to create what you want in life. You are actually a much more expanded individual than you know and as you learn to move past your logical limitations and trust in who you are and what you know on a higher level, you will be able to create amazing things in life, while being happy, joyful and stress free while doing it!
It is all a choice of the mind. Be conscious on what choices you are making and what you are creating by looking at what you have created. Is it working for you or do you want something different? You are the one who can change it by changing your thinking! You are the creator of your world even if you don’t believe it!
There is a great deal of help available these days to assist you in changing your thinking, take advantage of this help you do not have to re-invent the wheel
