We all have things that we would like to change about our lives. I am sure the reason you stumbled upon this site in the first place is because you are searching for something more out of life. When I coach people, I help them to embrace change so that they can transform their lives inside and out. I see so many people who are just existing. They are going through life as if they have no choices and are trapped in a life that will never be what they want.
In my experience, I have learned that life can be what you want, but it will never be until you start to see it that way. If you are constantly taking life as it comes to you, if you are never taking time to look within, if you are not pushing yourself to be more than you are right now, you will never experience life as it could be for you.
Your life could be full of happiness, fulfillment, passion, excitement, freedom, inspiration, growth and empowerment. You truly create what you will experience. Too many of us don’t realize this or if we do, we haven’t a clue how to create what we want.
Creating the life of your dreams all begins with what you are putting into your mind and what you are allowing to come out of your mind. Are you putting in negative influences by surrounding yourself with people who complain all the time? Are you constantly watching the news and taking in all of the negative information from it? Are you passing the time with things that will never move you forward in life? Are you hiding behind the TV, never really experiencing anything for yourself but living through the characters on the screen? Or are you filling your mind with positive influences such as inspiring books, movies and music? Are you hanging around people who make you feel uplifted and loved? Are you spending some time going within to discover who you are at your core and what you really want?
And what is coming out of your mind? What kinds of thoughts are you embracing? Are you constantly complaining? Do you hold a negative view of life? Are you telling yourself that you need to stay where you are because you are too afraid to make any changes? Are you escaping from your reality by keeping yourself busy? Or are you changing your mindset and taking on a more positive perception? Are you choosing to have thoughts that will uplift you? Are you pushing through your fears and deciding to no longer settle for a life that doesn’t fulfill you?
Do you really know who you are? Until you get clear on who you really are at a core level, you will not be able to even recognize your purpose. It will be an illusion to you. You will wonder, why am I here? Is this life and this job all there is? But when you spend some time getting to know yourself, you will be opened up to a whole new world. You will see the world in a whole new light because you will be looking at it through the eyes of your soul, not just through your personality. Our personalities are so limiting because they know nothing outside of our five senses and the reality that we see around us. When we tune into our soul, we see so much more than what we can see, hear, touch, smell and taste. We are opened up to the universal truths. They are within us – we just need to slow the mind chatter and chaos of life enough so that we can experience them. And once we open ourselves up, we will be able to find our true essence.
Your essence is your life purpose the inner calling that keeps prodding you to listen. It is what you want to feel in your life. It is the overall experience you want to have when you look back on your life. It is the destiny of your soul, the reason you are here on this earth in this lifetime.
Your essence cannot be ignored. It will continue to make itself known to you if you are not expressing it. When you do or say something that just doesn’t feel right, that is your soul telling you that you have stepped away from your essence. If you have a feeling of unhappiness or if you feel like something just isn’t quite right, it is because you are not aligned with your essence.
If you continue to neglect your essence, you will forever be searching for happiness. It will always feel like it is out of reach. You won’t feel fulfilled by your job, your relationships, your home and your life in general. You will feel like there is something more out there. You will have a longing sensation for things to change.
I know that it is hard to find the time to sit quietly and get to know yourself, but believe me when I tell you that you will never feel fulfilled until you do. My suggestion is to do whatever you need to do. Rearrange your life in whatever ways you can and find the time. Make it a priority so that you can experience happiness. Your soul will thank you for it and it will bless you in so many ways.
