Live the Life of Your Dreams with Passion!
On some level whether it be emotionally, mentally, physically, financially, sensually, sexually or spiritually we all experience a moment of enduring or just existing in life; hoping to discover the key to energetically connecting our vibrational alignment with living the life of our dreams with passion. We study metaphysics, philosophy, theology, and acquire ideal mentors; take workshops, classes, attend seminars, read books, magazines and anything else that keeps us focused on our path to living a life of fulfillment. We do the affirmations, visualizations, meditations, inner-work and take the intuitive action-steps for co-creating the life that we desire and discovering our souls purpose but to no prevail. We begin to question ourselves; is this even possible? What am I doing wrong? What am I missing? Is this meant for me? You’ve been working so hard on your inner-work but have yet to see it manifest fully on the outside. Until one day you decide to stop … and just breathe. You begin to contemplate all that you have learned and endured in this “school of life” thus far on your journey.
We wear so many hats trying to find the delicate balance within all of our responsibilities, titles and commitments both personally and professionally that we rarely giveback and indulge ourselves. Until that one auspicious day when you clearly decide to wholeheartedly apply all of your knowledge and wisdom; and deem yourself worthy to receive! You’re finally willing to completely release everything and just let go, allowing the balls to drop wherever they may. This is when you take those magical steps to be good to yourself! You are enlightened! You realize that it’s not out of selfishness or vanity; or even a luxury, but is a necessity to truly loving the magnificent Being that you are!
You now find yourself at the top of your list and begin scheduling some daily “Me” time. You may start meditating, exercising, stretching, yoga, dancing, eating healthy foods and juicing; applying feng shui principles, space clearing and cleansing into your environment. You’ll immerse yourself in sea-salt and aromatherapy bubble baths and you’ll begin romancing yourself with candles, fresh flowers, music and dance. Scheduling massages, facials, pedicures and other specialties for pampering yourself. You’ll make time regularly for your creative expressions whether it’s painting, drawing, photography, writing, dancing, singing, playing music, gardening, cooking, sewing, crafts, sports or whatever you’re interested in.
It’s when you truly begin to be good to yourself that you’ll find the treasures you’ve been searching for. It’s within the process of self-love through the giving and receiving of self-care that you’ll discover your souls purpose and ultimately, begin living the life of your dreams with passion!
