PASSION IS PURPOSE

What does it mean to live our purpose? What do we need in order to find our passion and accomplish our goals? Where do we find the strength to move forward? When we talk about these things there is a feeling we get inside of us that makes us excited and want to know more. We think, yes, tell me what it is so I can get it and know what to do. But, the problem is, that we have to find it on our own. Nobody can tell us what our purpose is or how to find it. It is up to each person to find their own path to their passion. It’s not as hard as we think, though. Its about connecting, connecting to our inner self that knows what makes us want to fight for what we believe in. Taking the time to quietly sit with ourselves and tap into our core and feel the fire of what is burning inside of us, that needs to get out. That’s what passion is. The only way we will have the strength to fight for what we want, is to live passionately.

I know that when we talk about passion we get excited and then when we’re told we have to find it on our own we get let down, but, here’s the thing, all we need to do is to take action. Not just any action, but, inspired action. Start searching, that’s how we can find out what it is we are passionate about. Just do something and even if we fail, that’s success, because we have found out what is not our purpose and we can move on to the next thing. Don’t give up, these days we have no excuse for not doing what we need to do to find our purpose, with the internet we can find out about anything, we can explore all our options, before we even take one solid action, we can take a step. Once we find our passion, then we can set our goals and tap into our inner strength and every day we can acquire the knowledge we need to achieve those goals. Setting ourselves up for success, is to tap into the true essence of our self and be a person who lives their purpose. We can do this by awakening the warrior within, its not about waring ourselves out driving towards that goal, so focused on it that we lose track of what we’re trying to accomplish, its about connecting to our purpose and tapping into that thing inside of us that we know, that we know, that we know, we are supposed to do. Once we understand where that passion comes from, research it and take action, it will take on a life of its own and lead us to where we need to go. Its not a head thing, its a heart thing.

Can we live our purpose and create the life we want without being a warrior? NO! Being a warrior means standing up for what we believe in. Its what gives us the strength we need to move forward, taking the steps necessary to accomplish any goal we set for ourselves and gives us the excitement and the enthusiasm to carry it out regardless of the obstacles that get in the way. One of the biggest obstacles we face is ourselves. We are the ones who will talk ourselves out of living our passion. We are the ones who tell ourselves we’re not good enough, we don’t drive a nice enough car, we’re not pretty enough, we’re not smart enough or we don’t have enough money. We go on and on telling ourselves how we are NOT going to accomplish our dreams. But, these are the obstacles that we can overcome if we just believe in ourselves and take the steps necessary to move forward, then, things have a way of working themselves out. I have never heard anyone who was successful that said they never had an obstacle to overcome. I am a writer, I love to write and regardless of what others tell me, I will write. In doing research on writing, I have found so many stories of rejection. Everyone who writes has been rejected by publishers, by the press, by other people’s opinions or by their own self talk. Rejection is what we need to push us and let us know if what we are doing is what we are passionate about, because without rejection we would not know what success is. When we are rejected by others or even ourselves and we do it anyway, that’s passion, that’s our purpose!

We can accomplish anything we want, there are no limits, only the limits we set for ourselves. Its not about having our heads in the clouds, its about waking up everyday and connecting with our inner self. We must make some time for ourselves or we will not know what makes us happy, excited about life, joyfully enthusiastic and enlightened. Wake up earlier than everyone else in the house, sit quietly and hear the still small voice of God speak. What a special moment that is, a moment that everyone experiences differently. Each of us is an individual with unique talents and gifts and no one person is exactly like another. We can chose how we want to live by connecting to our purpose, connecting to our inner power, connecting to our inner peace and connecting to our inner discipline. We are not going to war against anyone or anything, we are engaging in something bigger than ourselves, we are creating and we are standing for something. It’s more about surrendering than warring, we need to surrender to our passion and our purpose, living a life that flows freely. We do not have to struggle against the current, if we are being true to ourselves we will flow with the current of life. To know our purpose, is to be willing to give up everything to follow our passion. That’s when we know we are doing what need to do, that is being true to our self, that’s how we overcome obstacles. When we are willing to give up everything, then we’re concerned about nothing, which frees us and allows us to create whatever we want.

Be brilliant, shine and glow, there is a light inside of us that will only shine when we are lit up from the inside. The fuel for that fire is passion, a passion that comes from being uniquely ourselves. No one thinks the same way, moves the same way or lives the same life, no matter how close we are to others, we are closer to ourselves. We spend more time getting to know other people than we do ourselves, we believe more in others more than we do ourselves, we encourage others more than we encourage ourselves and we engage more with others than we do with ourselves. Again I want to say, lets embrace our individual uniqueness, and then we’ll be able to embrace the uniqueness of others. While we are trying to get people to understand us, let’s start by understanding others. Dare to be different by accepting the difference in others. Instead of competing with each other we can stand in our own space, a space that is unique to who we are, and allow others to do the same. We can work with others, instead of against them. Keep in mind that nothing happens overnight, everything takes time, but, we will never get anywhere if we don’t start somewhere. Taking baby steps each day will bring us closer and closer to our goals. Stay in the Now of each moment and enjoy life right now, don’t continue to look to the future for someday. Someday is here and now, each moment of everyday is the tomorrow we create, so make it as pleasant as possible, then, one day we’ll look back on today and say, “Those were the days”.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! I Think?

In doing research for this blog I came across some interesting information. My intention was to write about St Valentine and how we came to celebrate St Valentine’s Day. Well, to my surprise, there is no one St. Valentine and there is no connection between St. Valentines day and any of the three Valentines that were martyred at different times and buried on February 14.

There is a legend however, that tells of a St Valentine who was persecuted for being Christian. When being interrogated by Roman Emperor Claudius II, the Emperor tried to convert St. Valentine to paganism in order to save his life, but Valentine refused and tried to convert Claudius to Christianity instead. For this he was executed, but before he was executed he preformed a miracle by healing the daughter of the jailer, who was blind. In the romantic version that was given to history.com by American Greetings, the night before Valentine was to be executed he wrote a letter to his “beloved”, believed to be the daughter of the jailer, and signed the letter “From your Valentine”. Nice story, but there is no historical proof that this actually happened.

Before 1797 there were a limited number of Valentine’s Day cards being printed called “mechanical valentines”. After 1797, a British publisher issued the Young Man’s Valentine Writer, which contained a mass amount of suggested sentimental verses for those who were unable to compose their own. Because of the reduction in postal rates, it became easier for people to send anonymous Valentines day cards to each other. So, by the 19 century paper Valentines Day cards became so popular in England that they started to be produced in mass, by factories. The United States started mass producing them shortly after 1847 by Esther Howland, whose father owned a large book and stationary store. She was inspired by an English Valentine she received from a business associate of her father’s.

So you see, here we are in 2012 looking forward to Valentine’s Day so we can receive our bouquet of flowers, box of chocolates and a heart shaped pendant, all in the name of love. It’s a day of proposals, first dates, date nights and weddings. All because of a romantic story perpetrated by a card company as a marketing strategy to sell more cards. What are we to make of this? Look, I am all about love and romance and I am all for giving our loved ones romantic gifts and cards, but why are we doing it the name of a saint who doesn’t even exist, because of a story that has no proof? Why do we need a specific day to honor our loved ones? Why can’t we make everyday a day that we cherish our loved ones and make them feel special?

We have become so commercialized nowadays that we don’t know real from fake, truth from false or fact from fiction. Our economy is the way it is today because of people trying to live a fake life, by living above their means. We have become a society obsessed with the need for things, judging ourselves by our looks and comparing ourselves to what others hold in high regard. Now is the time to get real! Lets get real about our finances, our relationships and our lives. Lets get our heads out of the sand and live our lives as authentic, real and truthful human beings, loving each other everyday, flaws and all and not just on one particular day set aside for love.

NO MORE FEAR

I am writing this blog post today from the heart. I just want to say how excited I am about the upcoming year. I feel it is going to be an exciting one. There is so much to look forward to. I am aware that the media wants to paint a year of chaos and destruction, but that is only because it good marketing. We are living in a fear based society that craves a good doom and gloom story. Why do we love fear? It is very obvious that most people love the feeling of being afraid or roller coasters and horror movies wouldn’t be so popular. But what makes us want to live in fear? I have heard thrill seekers say that it makes them feel alive and gets their adrenaline flowing.

I realize that there is such a thing as facing our fears. If we are afraid of something and do it we will find out that there was nothing to be afraid of in the first place. But, there is a difference between facing our fears and living in fear. There are those who live in constant fear of the unknown. It seems like every time we get past an “end of the world” date, someone makes up another, keeping us in constant fear. And the funny thing is we fall for it every time. It is as though we are looking at our demise as some kind of thriller movie. If the media and the people who are promoting and making money off of fear would spend the same amount of time and money on promoting love instead of fear, joy instead of sadness and peace instead of war we would have hope instead of fear.

I for one am going to stay out of the fear and stay in love. I refuse to let the media and the promoters of doom and gloom take away my hope. I pray for a world that will stop worrying, stop being afraid, and stop the chaos that is causing separation. I pray that we will come together as one consciousness and change the doom to hope, the gloom to light, and ultimately the fear to love. I pray that this year will bring us closer than we have ever been in the past, that we would see that our differences are what make us the same, and that we ultimately all want the same things in life, peace, love and happiness.

Happy New Year to you all,

CHANGING LIFE

How important is it for us to prosper, have a great self-image, communicate clearly, have worthwhile relationships, and live our lives knowing that we are always making the right decisions? Sound to good to be true? Well, that is what we can have if we live our lives in the moment instead of in the past or in the future. Its about living a life of Truth.

What is Truth? It is when stop using our intellect and start looking within ourselves to give us the information we need to be who we Truly are. This can be called our higher self, the voice of inner Wisdom, or our intuition but what is it really?  Its all  the information that we need that is available to us in each moment.

When we go inside to find Truth we are putting ourselves through a process of clearing out false beliefs, false memories and false images about ourselves and our lives. Its when we combine  contemplation with meditation. Getting in tune with ourselves and releasing all data stored up inside our minds. And then receiving the Creative Energy we need to change our lives. Getting out of confusion and the dark. When we go within the light shines and that light reveals to us  whatever information we need in the form of Creative Energy.

We are usually motivated to make a change in our lives when we are going through troubles. That’s when we start with self rejection, thinking we are not good enough the way we are, hating where we are.  This is the engine that powers the train that motivates us to change. When we feel ourselves caught up in a web of self-defeating thoughts and actions. Where do we turn? Who has the answers? Where do I go from here? Mostly looking outside of ourselves for the answers. STOP! The first thing we need to do is go within to find the Love. We need to start embracing ourselves exactly where we, that’s where transformation happens.

Where does the Truth that is within us come from? When we are confused and need clear direction in our lives we think that our answers are somewhere out there. Truth isn’t something that we receive from someone or something as a one time gift and then we can move on with Wisdom, Knowledge and Truth firmly planted in us, no longer having to think about it. We are always flowing, moving, and growing, therefore, we have to be aware at all times, constantly living moment to moment. Then Truth is revealed to us from within, not without. We are given the grace to see that we need Truth and then we can start the process of removing false and receiving Truth. Then the light comes in and we get a wake up call and the Creative Energy starts flowing.

So many of us today are struggling financially. Why is that and how can we gain the Truth we need to get out of our situations?  Each of us struggles for our own reasons, however the beauty is when we go within to receive our Truth, the questions we ask ourselves are a reflection of our individual struggles, therefore, our Truth will be geared toward our own personal belief system we have stored inside our minds. When we do the work of letting go of false beliefs and ideas that hold us back, we will get the answers that we need.

 

So if the question we ask ourselves is “why am I not there yet?”, we won’t get the correct answer because that can’t be the question. That question will only reveal the false, because that question is a rejection of where we are and now we are caught in the negative which is false. That is self rejection that can never guide us to the Truth. Truth can only be revealed in the moment, that is the only Real. That is where Love, Power, Wisdom and Light reside and where we can, then, receive our Creative Energy. So, the question we should be asking is,  “What are the false beliefs and ideas I have that I need to understand? What is preventing me from receiving the Truth I want?”

When we are in Truth, we can embrace ourselves exactly where we are, because that’s where all our information is. So don’t let our questions to ourselves be about the negative or the false beliefs or ideas we have, because what we want is to be in Truth. Falseness is a rejection of ourselves and where we are because we think we want to be in a better or different place. Truth allows us to be exactly where we are so we can learn. If we do not recognize where we are and accept it with total non-judgement then we can’t learn from it and then find Truth which leads to receiving the Creative Energy that changes our lives.

There are a lot of people who are overwhelmed with all the responsibilities in life, many of us would like to have more focus and more direction in our life. We have a belief that it will take to much time. That is not Truth, because if we have time to breath, then we have time to know Truth, its that easy.  Truth is the moment we are in. If we ask ourselves a question, we can close our eyes, relax,  trust that the answer will come, and the rest is not our business. When we focus on our breath in and our breath out, then our Truth will arise from us and we will receive our Creative Energy.

Falseness guarantees our suffering, and we do not need to suffer. The questions we ask ourselves determine whether we let go of false beliefs and ideas and find Truth or if we remain in the dark, trying so hard to find the way out. Because Truth is all about self acceptance and acceptance of all those around us, wherever we are, the false focuses on rejection. How many questions do we ask ourselves everyday? We have so many questions and if they are rejecting, then we cannot come to the Truth. We need to be willing to go inside ourselves and accept ourselves just the way we are and be accepting of others just the way they are, and from that place we will naturally evolve, move and grow, it can’t be helped. From there we get the Creative Energy we need to move forward and change our lives.

IN YOUR HANDS

With all the tools we have available to us now a days we have become a society that has so much power. But, how do we us this power? This power is a creative power that can be used to destroy or  we can use it to evolve. So the question is what do we as individuals want to create? Your decision has the power to make or break humanity as a whole. It is in your hands.

meme

It is our individual duty to humanity to make a conscious effort to do good with the opportunities that come our way. We can make a decision to put our efforts towards, expressing our goodness, or to destroy with our creativity, the choice is up to us. The kind of power we have at our disposal is the kind of power that used to be attributed to gods. This is the kind of power that can destroy our environment and our world or we can do great things and evolve into a more superior species. It is in your hands.

meme

It is obvious that our world is in crisis, and this crisis can be used as a driving force to push us to evolve or devolve and go extinct. It is that serious. It seems that we are just starting to wake up to the fact of how serious things are. As we continue to awaken in the next few years, we will start asking ourselves serious questions about the direction we want to take regarding our environment, energy, education, etc…Then we can become innovators. It is in your hands.

meme

We are creative beings, so lets ask ourselves, what do we want to create? What kind of society do we want to create? With all the power and all the knowledge that is available we have it in our control to create whatever kind of world we want. The palate is clean, we can write on it or paint on it whatever we want to. We do not have any idea of what kind of world we will create because we have nothing to go by, there is no model for us to look at and say, that’s were we need to be. It is in your hands.

meme

There is a power shift happening all over the world and it is women who are heading the movement to change our world. It used to be said that after menopause, women were done. That since we were done with child bearing we were done with our contribution to society. But the truth is after 50 women are becoming more vital, more creative, and more beautiful. As long as we keep ourselves active, as long as we still have a passion, and as long as we are curious enough to want to learn new things. This is what gives us a sense of purpose, and a reason to stay creative. This then changes our mind set and we no longer feel the need to want to be younger. Life after 50 is about using all the wisdom, knowledge and creativity we have accumulated through the years. This is such a new concept that we do not have very many role models to fashion ourselves after. It is in your hands.

meme
Powerful Women Over 50

Our crisis in the world may be getting worse, but the scope of opportunities are greater for us now than they have ever been. There is a lot more freedom for women to become more innovative, creative and forge the path to the evolution of the human race. We come from an unconditional love and passion that is far beyond anything that can be imagined.  When we as women fall in love with our passion to create, we become so focused on it that we just have to share it. Its not about competition, it about the love and passion behind what it is we want to create. It becomes not about what we want to get, but what we want to give. It is in your hands.

meme

When we strive so hard to make money, its all about making a living, but when we are being creative, passionate and giving, then its more about creating a life. We women have a natural sexual energy about us, even after 50, that same energy is the energy we use to create. Whether it be a human life or our passion. This sexual, creative energy is then shared with others, which then fills us up. It fills our hearts, our brains, our intuition, and our whole unique selves. We tap into our unique gifts, and the sharing of these gifts are what give us a sense of purpose, spiritually, socially, and individually. It is in your hands.

Do You Want To Free Your Soul?

Learn how to free your soul!

We’ve heard the saying “Free your mind”, but free your soul? What does it mean to free your soul?

We as women have preconditioned beliefs about who we’re supposed to be. Freeing our soul is a way of allowing our “soul self” to shine through and live the life were supposed to lead.

One of the conditioned beliefs we may have is that girls must be girls. That women need to look and act a certain way in order to be accepted. We do not feel like we are allowed to be ourselves; to be who we authentically are.

Then there is the need to be all things to all people. Selfishness vs selflessness. This is such a common problem with women. When we think that we have neglected to fulfill someones need, then we have the feeling of being failure. Women have the belief that if we do not do it all, or if we ask for help, then we are being selfish.

Another conditioned belief is the victim mentality. We women have an uncanny way of  being able to put ourselves into “victim mode”.  We feel like the whole world is against us. We become defeated and won’t stand up for ourselves. We make others responsible for our happiness. Thinking that we are victims comes from not speaking our truth, from a lack of feeling worthy, not entitled, or that we feel like we’re not allowed to have what we want in life.

In order to change these conditioned beliefs and free our souls we must change our mindset. We must allow ourselves to be full and complete.  Have a feeling of  self-full-ness instead of selfishness or selflessness. If we do not give love to ourselves, we can not fully give all our love to others. We need to realize that we are the victim of our own self; our own mental processes, before we can be a victim of someone else.

So start becoming aware of your own conditioned beliefs and raise your soul esteem by  becoming a version of our highest truth.
Use your intuition, your gut feeling and tap into your inner energy that is authentic, so that you can start living a life of true well being.
