What To Do If You Haven’t Found Your Passion

If you are anything like me, a lot of things interest you.

You feel like your mind is running in a million different directions, and your passion may not be as clearly defined as some of the other people that you are comparing yourself to.

You may have a seemingly non-related list of passions that you can’t seem to marry.

For example you may like soap making, decoding dreams, gardening, collecting rocks, and sculpting.

Your list of things you love may excite you, but you can’t figure out how to fit them all into to this structure based society.

Not being able to pin down your passion and put it into a category may leave you feeling ashamed, irresponsible, and disappointed in yourself.

If you’ve been feeling anything close to that, this post is for you.

I came across some information today that I knew I had to share.

In the video below, Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the Eat Pray Love phenomenon, gives some profound advice on following your passion.

So if you feel like you’ve gotten it wrong or like you are a step behind because you haven’t clearly discovered your passion – the video below is for you.

Enjoy!

Be sure to stop back and let me know what you think.

Thanks for reading!

Your Heart’s True Desire vs. What You Think You Desire

flower

I consider myself a loyal person.

That’s why when my sister called to tell me she was going into labor, I was in the car quicker than she could finish her sentence.

When I went into labor, I expected the same treatment.

I expected her to drop everything just like I did. I expected her bags to be packed (just like mine), and for her to be willing to stay the night, if that’s what I needed from her, but she didn’t.

She instead decided that showing up for work was more important. I, of course, was hurt. I felt like I didn’t matter enough to her for her to drop what she was doing to see me through that time in my life, but my perception was wrong. 

I didn’t notice that my perception was off until I was sitting in my hospital room and I noticed how peaceful it was.

My hubby was breathing and preparing himself for the arrival of our son and the nurses were quietly walking in and out to monitor the baby’s heartbeat and mine. As I sat there in peace, I noticed the perfection of the moment.

I noticed that what I thought I wanted and what I really wanted, were two very different things. 

I really wanted my son’s birth to be between me, my significant other, and the earth angels (the doctors and nurses), that were called to bring him into the world.

I realized that I didn’t want or need anyone else to be there, but the one who had seen me at my most vulnerable and that knew how important the birth of my son was to me.

I also realized how important it was for my significant other to have his privacy as well. You see, he had lost a child from a previous relationship, and this was a very momentous and somewhat frightening occasion for him as well.

The universe had lined up circumstances and events that led me and my significant other to what we really wanted and not to what we thought we wanted. God saw the bigger picture. God knew that I wouldn’t want my sister’s job to be in jeopardy and also knew that I didn’t want anyone in the room that would be worried or resentful for being there.

The birth of my son was perfect.

The people that were supposed to be there – were there, and it turned out better than I could have imagined. I just needed to let go of the idea that something was going wrong, and open to the fact that things were really working in my favor.

So if you are going through something right now that doesn’t seem to be working out the way that you had planned, just realize that you are on your way to something better. You are in good hands and you are being guided to your heart’s real desire and not just to what you think you desire.

Having Difficulty Finding Support On Your Chosen Path? Trust Is The KEY.

path

I received a question from the Ask Ray – Open Interaction that I posted yesterday. 

The question had to do with expression, being supported, and feeling worthy to receive the blessings that come with following your chosen path.

Ray had alot to say.

I am not surprised though. This question or questions that are similar have been asked many times before and still weigh heavy on alot of people’s minds.

So here is Ray’s (my spirit guides) response to this question.

Anything that your heart desires you can have.

Anything.

The first thing that you need to come to terms with is trusting the process. The process entails you being the artist and the creator that you are, but also trusting that there is a bigger broader energy that is backing and supporting you expressing yourself in the way that you would like.

Now sometimes people think if they aren’t doing a certain thing – a certain way, then they’re not being backed and supported . Those thoughts are not accurate.

You are always being backed and supported for anything that brings you joy, that lights you up, and that allows you to express yourself as the being you know yourself to be.

Now sometimes, there might be something that gets you a little off track, because you believe that you have to do it all, be it all, and gain the support, but we want you to start trusting that you will rendezvous with the right people, circumstances, and events that will help you progress in the direction that you would like.

However, sometimes when you are worried and not allowing it to come as easy as you would like (because you think it should be more difficult – it shouldn’t be this easy to flow in this way), it stops the pieces from moving into your experience you see. So we want you to begin to trust the whole process – to not try to do it all by yourself – to just flow and create and move in the direction of your dream, and to trust that the infinite is backing your decision to move in this direction.

You might not see the people and circumstances right away, but the more you open your heart to the fact that there is nothing you cannot do. As a matter of fact if you chose it, that means most likely that it is a desire of your heart to express in that form or fashion.

So believe in that.

Trust it.

Anchor yourself, and know that everything that you need to support that beingness will rise up to meet you, but you have to trust that it will. If you worry, if you stifle your creativity because things are not moving as quickly as you would like, if you block yourself from opening your heart and flowing in that expression, it makes it more difficult for you to line up with the things that are around you that can help you move quicker.

There is well-being all around you waiting to reveal itself to you.

You’ve matched up with some of it now.

We want to let you know that you are ready to start receiving and allowing. We want you to acknowledge that you heard the call. We want you to acknowledge that that’s a special part of you.

Your intuition, your gut feelings, you following your heart and that flow, all of that is a special part of you. We want you to take that with you, and stop worrying so much about what the eyes don’t see and trust that beingness of you to guide you to where you need to be.

We are most appreciative of the opportunity to speak with you and say this that clearly. We don’t mean to run on so long, but we want you to really hear what we are trying to say. We appreciate you. We appreciate your question. Blessings be to you dear one.

Why I Do What I Do & The Challenges That Come With It

ProtectYourDreams

IT’S NOT EASY FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS.

Well that is true from my perspective anyway.

For those of you out there that follow your dreams with ease – kudos to you!

I had a dream last night that I had a discussion about with my significant other. As we talked about the dream imagery, some really deep stuff surfaced.

In addition to writing, I love to create. I love the idea of creating a positive environment that stimulates new thoughts and that inspires people to follow their dreams not matter what. What I couldn’t figure out however, was even though I am following my heart, what in the world is holding me back?

I was trying to figure out – why – when I am putting my heart on the line trying to create something positive – is something trying to squeeze the life out of me and cause me to give up?

BY DECODING MY DREAM FROM LAST NIGHT, I FOUND SOME OF THE ANSWERS.

You see, when you don’t have any positive role models around to look up to – following your dreams is very difficult. When your background says that you shouldn’t be anything but someone’s assistant – it’s no wonder that when you try to be something more than that – the grip of fear holds you back.

I am sensitive and caring by nature. So when I think of creating my art, making a living, and building a positive business from scratch, I don’t just have myself in mind – I have a broader view.

I have seen the diseases of poverty, helplessness, resentment, alcoholism, and hardened hearts claim the lives of many of my family members (spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically). I have seen the female energy killed in my family by unruly, disrespectful, insensitive men. I have watched people in my family let go of their dreams to follow a righteous – socially acceptable path, and for me I have a hard time swallowing some of it.

It’s difficult to sit back and watch the people who you care about the most, suffer in their lives. It’s even more difficult when you feel that you can’t do anything about it. Because of all of that, I feel that that only thing I can do is try to prosper in my own life.

It’s no wonder though that when I try to step outside of that vicious cycle of poverty, abuse, and insensitivity – that the roots of my background snake around me and question, “where do you think you are going, who do you think you are, do you feel you are someone special or something?”

THE ANSWER IS YES.

I do think that I am meant to live a better life. I do think that I am meant to shine. I do think that despite the way some of my family members have continued to deaden their dreams, that I am meant to rise above it, but it’s not easy to do.

There are some strong females in my family. They will walk the earth strapped with their children on their backs, they will walk the line of fire to defend the ones they love, they will get down on their hands and knees to do manual labor to put a roof over our heads. Yes, they are physically strong – I give them that.

But ask them what they love to do? Ask them what has hurt them the most? Ask them where they envisioned their life going? Ask them to tell you what they are proud of? Ask them what sets their heart on fire? You’ll hear nothing but silence.

Ask them to hug you or to tell you they love you. Ask them to care for their children even after they turn 18 years old. Ask them to support you emotionally, show faith in your wildest dreams, and you will get nothing in return from them.

THE TRUTH IS – THEY DOn’t Know How TO feel and show their vulnerability.

They know how to provide. They know how to tough it out. They know how to just barely make it, but they don’t know how to show they care and that it’s okay not to be able to do it all. The women in my family are so use to being the men and fighting to survive that they don’t know what femininity means to them anymore. They don’t know what it means to let their guard down.

And then here I come – Ms. Do Good, trying to teach myself a different way, trying to show myself that it is okay to love and express, trying to prove to others that there is another way, trying to realize my dreams, trying to teach my son that he can make it no matter what, and all this time I feel like I am living a lie, because even though my heart says it’s doable – my past says it can’t be done. The negative spells (being beat down mentally) that were put on me while I was younger say, “you are out of your league – try something different”.

How is anyone supposed to work through the pull of that negativity? Especially, when no one close to her was able to do it? Where do I turn to? Who do I look up to?

Maybe some of you out there are going through the same struggle.

I HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME.

I have to have faith that my dreams are meant to be. I have to have faith that there is a part of me that is more powerful than I can imagine. I have to believe that there are angels and guides that have filled the place of those family members that were not and are not around to support me. I have to believe that the call of my heart is more important than my thoughts of doubt.

That’s the only way to make it through.

I have to believe that I have a purpose here, and despite the tug of war going on inside, it will be brought to fruition.

I appreciate anyone who stops by to read what I write. I appreciate any comment, any like, and every follow. I realize that you can be anywhere, but you have given me your time and attention, and you don’t understand how by doing that – you are helping me believe in myself. It means the world to me to have someone take the time to write a comment. It gives me hope that I should stay in this, and continue towards building my dream.

Thanks for reading!

Pathways To The Soul

Open To What's Possible

Open To Infinite Possibilities

The snippet below is from the new book I’m writing – Soul Guidance – Finding Your Way Home.

These words were formulated from the idea that there are several pathways to the soul.

To be patient with yourself, to trust your steps, to make way for your intuition – are all pathways to the soul.

To forgive yourself, to be easy about your life, to hold yourself in a positive light – those are all pathways to the soul.

Every pause, every redirection of negative energy, every moment that you choose love instead of fear – those are all pathways to the soul.

Acceptance of yourself, peace with your place, thoughts of what you love most – are all pathways to the soul.

Honoring your wishes, allowing your blessings, cherishing your moments here on earth – are all pathways to the soul.

Excusing your faults, forgiving your mistakes, silencing your inner critic – are all pathways to the soul. 

The routes are endless, and they were made to come easily to you, but you’ve built walls around your heart to keep the bad stuff out, to block criticism, and to shield yourself from the watchful eye of others – as if you have any reason to hide yourself. 

How wonderful is it to know that there are endless ways of connecting to your soul?

Thank you for reading!
