“Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” —Epicurus
What lights you up more fervently than anything else in your life? Listen to whatever immediately comes to you – these are signs leading you to your true passion, your most heartfelt desire, and ultimately your destiny.
When we heed the call of our deepest desires, we fulfill our true destinies. Children do not shy away from their passions, they effortlessly live from a place of wonder, play, and delight. For many of us, we’re taught that we must abandon our natural passions as we cross the divide between childhood and adulthood. Yet, passion is what drives us to be the very best individuals we can be.
Today, through meditation, we reconnect to our internal spark and begin to gently release those long-held stories about who we should be as we become more intimately re-acquainted with who we really are. Together we will practice shining brightly as the individuals we were born to be as we freely share our gifts with everyone we meet.
Our centering thought for today is:
“I choose abundance.”
Our Sanskrit mantra for today is:
“Om Bhavam Namah.” I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibility.
Set aside one hour today to do something you thoroughly enjoy. It doesn’t matter what it is . . . whether it’s a walk in the woods, reading a good book, or creating a delicious meal . . . do it purely for the joy of the activity. As you settle in for sleep tonight, revisit the experience in your mind, considering why this activity excited you or brought you joy. Set the intention to awake the next day in this same state of mind and heart.
Living our passions and desires are not out of our reach!
It is our birthright!
Full-fill your purpose by fulfilling your joy!
When we do what we love, we invite great blessings and abundance into our lives.
“Passion is the free flow of natural energy that leads us toward the fulfillment of dreams, desires and purpose in life.
When we do anything with passion we express every aspect of who we are. time seems to stand still as we engage in whatever activity fills us with inspiration, love and joy. Without passion, life can feel flat or stale, yet many people keep their passion in check or bury it so deep that they are no longer aware of its existence. It is those moments when we do what we love that we open the door to abundance and prosperity in all areas in our life. It is that simple. Yet as we grow up some of us receive the message that we don’t deserve to have passions. That what we want is unacceptable. or that it is wrong, impractical, or selfish to go after our dreams. We may feel powerless, and think why bother having desires when they will never be fulfilled anyway?
As you hear these words, what feelings come up for you?
Do you feel connected to your passion?
When you wake up in the morning, are you usually excited about your projects and plans for the day?
Or do you feel lost? Bored? Or stuck?
If you aren’t doing what you love, what thoughts or beliefs are holding you back?
The most common limiting belief is focus on money and worth. So many people tell themselves “I can’t make a living doing what I love.” or “that dream is just out of reach, it is really not meant to be.”
When you hold some part of yourself in reserve, you severely limit what life can bring to you, and what you can give to life.
Abundance flows when you are centered in the awareness that your true self is pure spirit. unbounded and outside of time and space. Spirit doesn’t place limits on your joy, prosperity and fulfillment. It is our ego that creates limiting stories about why we cant make enough money doing what we love, or that we are not worthy of prosperity.”
Once we let go of these thoughts and stories, we can return to our true selves in a place of creativity, joy, and happiness that can never be completely denied. They are clues to the expression of your destiny.
All that is required of you is to say yes, take a breath, and receive. Receive. Receive…
What do you enjoy? What makes your heart jump, and leap, and pitter-patter?
Let today be a day you follow your own blissful heart. TGIF!
