Purpose Driven Life

Are You Living on Purpose?

Purpose Driven Life

You know you are living on purpose and leading a truly meaningful life when you can honestly tell yourself that you are living these 5 steps.

I have been hearing from clients and others that I have been talking to lately that they are feeling there is a deeper meaning to their life. Is this you as well?

I believe that you are being divinely guided to step into your greatness and what you came here to do. That is why you are feeling that desire to discover this deeper meaning to your life.

Be honest with yourself when you go through these steps. I want you to fully enjoy your life and know that you are making the difference in the world that you were created to make.

1. Listen and follow your heart and intuition

Divine source energy lives in your heart center and guides you from that space. If you are logically trying to figure out what to do in life, you are not following your heart and intuition.

You may receive messages or awareness that makes no sense to you, I urge you to go into your heart and perceive whether that feels light to you. If it does, it aligns with your authentic truth and is a message from your higher self and divine source energy. Trust and have faith and keep a journal of the messages you received, if you followed it and the results that transpired.

Realize that some results take time. Be willing to be in the present moment and be aware of what is showing up for you.

2. Step in to the highest and best version of yourself every moment

Being authentic and truly YOU is the only way to live. If you are not being you, who are you trying to be? You have a unique design, are you aware what that is?

Judy Garland said, “Always be a first rate version of yourself instead of a second rate version of somebody else.”

You are unique with gifts, talents and a message that only you can deliver. Embrace who you are and let go of all your judgments about yourself. The thing that you are most fearful of doing, DO IT NOW! It will move you into a higher version of you.

3. Live a life of gratitude

Happiness is a choice. Your perception of everything that happens in your life is a choice. Choose to view life as it is happening for you and through you instead of to you.

Everything has a gift in it for you. You are the co-creator of your life and your experiences. Seek the gift in everything and choose to be grateful and you will be happier with yourself and your life.

4. Make a difference

You are here to be of service not in servitude. You will fulfill your own divine purpose by serving others with your unique gifts, talents and message.

Strive to make a difference in someone’s day every day. This could simply be sharing a smile with them or by doing something that is greater than you and making a huge positive impact in their life.

The choice is yours but make sure that it feels light and good to you. If you are feeling obligated to do something, it does not align with your truth and you would be better to choose something else.

5. Take full responsibility for your life

Be willing to own the choices you have made in life. Sometimes we make choices that are experiences from which we have grown, learned and developed new skills from.

You are the common denominator in everything that has happened to you. When you own your own choices, you take back your power that you gave away from blaming someone else for your troubles. This will empower you beyond measure.

It is a purpose of mine to raise the awareness and consciousness of women who desire to live a purpose driven life and make a difference in this world. Schedule a Clarity Strategy Session at no cost to you and step into your purpose driven life today.

Be Authentic, BE YOU!

actualize your dreams

Are you ready to actualize your dreams?

By | Personal Growth | 3 Comments

actualize your dreamsDo you have a dream that hasn’t manifested yet? 

You can get discouraged if you have a dream, yet it hasn’t come to reality yet.

Maybe you have taken action steps towards it in the past and have gotten burned, disappointed, hurt or had your pride wounded in some way and put it on the back burner.

It’s like a smoldering flame deep down within you.  You want it to be a reality but a part of you is just too darn tired or afraid to take action on it once again.  Yet, it won’t leave you alone.  It just keeps nagging at you.

Have you ever experienced this in your life? 

If you have the dream in your heart and it won’t leave you alone, you were born with that dream and it is part of who you are.

You owe it to yourself and the world to do whatever it takes to fulfill your dreams!

 

I know for me it is my dream of finding the love of my life.  Deep within me I know and feel that there is someone special out there just waiting for us to meet and create our life together!  After almost 26 years of being divorced and single, that dream is still there.

Yes, I have gone through all the emotions, thoughts and feelings of giving up, putting it away and not thinking about this dream.

I used to say, “What is wrong with me?” all the time until I realized that there was nothing wrong with me, that it was I who was standing in my own way from realizing this dream.

You can choose to make that smoldering fire a daily suffering or you can choose to make it a burning desire with purpose, passion and results.

Are you allowing your dream to come into reality?

Sometimes you can create such a stringent container of how you want your dream to show up that you aren’t even aware of what is showing up that are foundational pieces of your dream.

I am not saying that you shouldn’t visualize your dreams as that is important.  What I am saying is when you visualize; allow your consciousness to be aware of the energy of the visualization.  Everything is energy and energy doesn’t lie.

I remember turning down the unconditional love of a man that had all the qualities I visualize the love of my life having.  I couldn’t get past that he wasn’t taller than me because in my mind I saw this person being tall, dark and handsome.  I was locked into that was the way he must show up.

You just might be passing up on some pretty awesome things because they don’t  look exactly like how you visualized them.

By allowing yourself to tap into the energy of your dreams and not be so hung up on what it looks likes in physical presence, you will find yourself bringing more dreams into reality.

When you get out of your own way, allow the energy of God/Spirit/The Universe to work with you instead of you working against it, miracles happen.  You fulfill your dreams, and life becomes fun, exciting and worth living.

Do you have a dream that you haven’t brought into reality yet? 

Are you standing in your own way from realizing that dream? 

What would your life be like if you allowed yourself to be open to all possibilities of actualizing that dream today, next month or this year?

Would you be happier in life with the dream as part of your living reality?   Although I am very happy in life, I know I would be happier with the love of my life in it.  That is why I am making 2013 the year to actualize my dream and the energy of what he will contribute to my life and me to his.

We would love to hear your thoughts about your dreams. Leave us a comment below and feel free to share this post with your family and friends.

Fear of Change

What To Do When The Fear Of Change Holds You Hostage

By | Personal Growth | 4 Comments
Fear of Change

Fear of Change

Has the fear of change ever held you hostage? 

Yes, I can feel the nod of your head going up and down.

The memory or memories come flooding back to that time that you wanted to change jobs but were afraid to do so because you weren’t sure if the new job was the right move for you or not.

Or maybe it was a relationship that you were in that you knew wasn’t right for you, but it was better than nothing and the fear of being alone was stronger than your ability to conquer fear.

 

At some point in time, most people are faced with major change and will need to find ways to overcome fear. 

 

Change is inevitable because we live in a changing world.

Nothing is constant, everything is always changing and change can be really good.  It is all in how you choose to look at it.

I know for myself, I have always welcomed change and have looked at it as an adventure, a new beginning, a period to grow on an emotional, spiritual, physical or financial level.

Yes, I have felt fearful at times when the change was a really big one for me.

 

We all have to find ways to conquer fear. My solution has always been “face the fear and do it anyway.”

 

You can play the “what if” game in your head but where does that get you?

More confused, unable to make a decision and held hostage to the “fear of change”.  Your answers will never be found up in your head so please stop analyzing everything from that place.

Through my years of facing the fear and doing it anyway, I have learned to ask questions of my higher self and the Universe and then use my strategy from Human Design to make the correct decision for me.

The “why” question will only drive you insane so I recommend staying away from asking any question that starts with “why”.

 

Some of my favorite questions to ask when I am feeling the “fear of change” are:

  1. What about this am I not getting right now that would allow me to move forward with ease?
  2. Will this contribute to the bigger plan and purpose of my life?
  3. Who does this fear belong to?

The interesting thing about fear is that 98% of the time, it isn’t even our own but the energy that we took on from someone in our surroundings and it is impossible to process it if it doesn’t even belong to you.

Are the wheels in your mind spinning yet?  Yes, you heard me right, the fear most likely isn’t even yours!

So how much of your life have you been living operating off of thoughts, feelings and emotions that doesn’t even belong to you?

What would your life be like if you could be free of all the heaviness that isn’t even yours but that you have taken on and owned as your own?

Would it be possible to live the life you love with ease and joy?

Would it be beneficial to you to understand what is yours and what is not so you can truly live an authentic life?
