What Makes You Truly Come Alive?
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." ~Howard Thurman
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
Honoring ourselves by taking time to reflect on who we are and what purpose we are here to serve is important to our happiness. When we do what is most aligned with our true nature, we will always feel better. We will always be more productive and we will always be more successful! Why? Because we are following our heart, and our heart holds our power. When our heart is in it, we are inspired. And inspiration always serves us well!
Enjoying the experiences of our lives is of the utmost importance to our happiness. Real happiness is striving toward our potential. What you enjoy may be different from what others define as "quality time." But, that is not important. Do what makes you feel good and gives you joy. As you focus on following your heart and tapping into your intuition for answers, your life will immediately be happier and more fulfilled. You will "come alive" with joy as you shift your direction to that place of abundance.
Start by finding your passions. Notice topics that interest you or subjects that you find yourself frequently thinking about. These are the activities that make your heart sing and give you joy. Own them. When you do, you will feel more at ease with yourself and others, making it easier to stay in place of peace and calm, enjoying more fully your precious moments. As you cherish the nature of the real you, you will touch all those around you in wonderful ways. And always remember, money follows your passion. It’s true, I have seen it many times!
Celebrate who you are everyday! Recognize the special talents and unique gifts that you bring to life. Engage in them and you will also more naturally feel love for yourself. Your comfort in your own skin is very appealing to everyone all around you. Just be who you are, and others will seek you out. Others will flock to spend time with you as they feel the beauty and boldness of the real you. There is no need to change in order to fit in or belong. Just be bold and be the real you!
The only one in-charge of creating your dream reality is YOU. Find your way by allowing yourself to be guided from within, not from the outside. No one else can tell you what is your way, what your purpose is. You must listen for clear thoughts and the feelings inside that bring you peace. Then, take action. Your Power within will guide you in the best way. But, this Power only works from a place of calm.
Do you want to wake up in the morning excited, jumping out of bed with a thirst for life that, perhaps, you haven't felt in a long time? Finding your purpose at any stage of your life can be a driving force to achieve a state of daily enthusiasm and gratitude.
If you’re ready to find your answers within, try this free Heart-Centered Meditation from Sita Jagai. (Listen in the video below.)
When you have finished listening to the meditation track, thank your Power in advance for the wisdom you are about to receive. Then, ask yourself these kinds of questions. Just ask what you want to know.
Who am I? What purpose am I here to serve? Or, what action can I take to have a more fulfilling and purposeful life?
Whatever your burning question is, ask it! Listen to the meditation every day for a week, and ask again each day as you finish it. Have a notebook and pen nearby to note the thoughts that come to your mind, or feelings that you get. Stick with it! You have to trust and have faith in your own greatness, and trust that you can connect to your Infinite Source of Power within your heart. Connecting with your very own Teacher just takes a little practice, and practice always makes perfect. With this practice comes guidance and clarity.
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, fun!
