Desire and Destiny Day 12: Inspired Me

i am inspired

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”  —Theodore Roosevelt

When we follow our hearts, we make life choices that seemingly open doors for us without force, we are then aligned with our inner knowing. The path is revealed with ease. Other times, we may “over-think” our decisions, choosing the guidance of the mind over the messages of the heart. We may find that in these moments, our paths become filled with obstacles that hinder us at nearly every turn.

In today’s meditation, we will connect deeply with our hearts, our most trustworthy inner guidance system. As we relax into our heart-center, we access the wisdom of the whole universe and the blueprint for true happiness. The invitation is to silence the chatter—to gently release thoughts, judgments, distractions, and pressures—in order to truly hear our hearts’ desires and messages. Only then can we source our inner inspiration and realize not only our dreams, but our destinies.

Our centering thought for today is:

“I am inspired. I am unstoppable.”

Our Sanskrit mantra for today is:

“Om Varunam Namah.” My actions are in alignment with cosmic law.

MINDFUL MOMENT

Gift yourself by dedicating time today to check your “heart center pulse.” Pause several times over the course of the day, place your hand on your heart and breathe. Close your eyes and spend time noticing your natural breath. Feel the easy flow of breath coming in and going out. Stop to feel your heart, allowing your senses to feel the rhythm of your physical heart and the pulse of your intuitive feeling heart. Just feel, connecting with your center, just be.

Inspiration.

“It is time to act and understand how our actions  impact the realization of our dreams. When we force an action, in hopes of creating an outcome we desire, and can actually block ourselves from magnificent possibilities. If an action is born and inspired from the truth of you, from within, it is coming from an essential and divine place supported by the energy that helps us effortlessly move toward our destiny. When we make decisions based on our intuition and intention, the Source of who we are and what it is we want from life we steer from our hearts and we become the co-creators of our destiny.” – Oprah

Today Deepak asked us three questions.

#1. Recall something you have really wanted to happen, when you were so connected to the outcome and passionate about the goal. Yet every step forward you experienced an obstacle but pressed on because your desire was so strong but you couldn’t just shake off the struggle. When you finally reached your goal you suffered some bumps and bruises along the way. He asked us to remember how that journey felt?

#2. Recall and reflect on a situation where you had a goal in mind and every action you took toward it was effortless, comfortable and easy. When your inspiration was flowing and doors just kept opening one after another. Nothing was in the way. The way was clear. Small and easy steps and the outcome was more delicious than you expected.  What did this journey feel like?

#3. What was the difference?

“When we force action or an outcome, its much like where we are stuck in traffic and we keep moving from lane to lane hoping we will some how get ahead of it. However, when we take action that is inspired, we flow through our lives like cars on an open freeway. Effortlessly moving, toward our desire.

Are bodies give us cues through emotion when we are forcing something, and when we are in alignment with the universe. It’s important to come to understand what those cues are. Really feeling them inside. Those are our road maps, which guide us as we navigate through life. If it feels right, it is. If it feels uncomfortable or discordant in any way, it is. Sometimes we override those emotional cues in our bodies that tell us we are taking a more difficult road by forcing an outcome that we desire. When that happens it is easy to open ourselves to greater problems or block ourselves from being present for something grander in our lives to unfold. We often do this because we are comfortable with what our ego minds see what is “right” for us. While the answer resides within our hearts.  In flowing life from the heart involves trusting the unknown, which can be uncomfortable.”

When faced with uncertain choices, check in with your heart, is it singing with excitement and joy? If it is take action.

On the other hand, if there is confusion where you feel, be easy on yourself and wait for the inspiration to come. Trust in your heart’s wisdom. 

Consider today’s centering thought,

“I am inspired. I am unstoppable.”

Find a comfortable position with your hands gently in your lap and close your eyes. In this moment go within. Go to that inner place of quiet where we experience our connection to the higher Self. Let go of all thoughts and begin to observe the inflow and outflow of your breathe. With each breathe allow yourself to become more relaxed, more comfortable and more at peace. Now gently introduce today’s mantra.

“Om Varunam Namah.” My actions are in alignment with cosmic law.

Repeat the mantra silently to yourself. Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, feelings in your body, or noises around you; simply repeat the mantra until you are finished.

What were your impressions of today’s meditation? 

I am inspired. I am unstoppable.
You are inspired. You are unstoppable.
My actions can be in alignment with cosmic law.
Your actions can be in alignment with cosmic law.
Namaste. We are all one.
