Follow your bliss. This advice used to really piss me off. I would think to myself, “if I knew how to follow my bliss, don’t you think I’d be doing it.”
I was super frustrated and found myself spinning in circles trying to figure it out, but it’s way easier than I made it.
The secret most folks don’t know–Bliss hides in plain sight. It’s in the most random things and in ordinary places.
“What should I do?”
I get this question a lot from clients when they’re at a crossroads – unsure which way to go.
Most folks are looking for the neon arrow that will point them in the right direction.
Ironically, life isn’t going to tell us what to do. Why not? Because it’s here to serve us. Life likes to give us options.
As humans, we carry an innate ability to create.
I’ve been hearing lots of complaints from business owners, parents, and community leaders about the generation known as Millennials.
Millennials are entitled.
They don’t think they need to prove themselves.
They don’t want to put forth any effort.
They don’t want to earn their way.
The narrative about Millenials fascinates me since my generation (Generation X) embodied the opposite characteristics. We suffered from “not enoughness” or low self-esteem.
We have some things to talk about- things that you have been pondering, wondering, and searching for. You have a lot of questions about how life works, why you’re here, and what it all means. On top of those big questions that pull at you, you’re also juggling life as it comes. It’s a lot.
Here’s the thing…
The reason you feel this pull, the reason you have all these big and little questions about your life is that you are remembering who you truly are and it’s not what you previously thought.
Imagine yourself as an artist in the best studio available. There’s every color of paint you can imagine, canvases of all sizes, brushes, clay, metals, glass, any material you could want waiting for you to bring it to life.
You are given free rein to use everything available.
You can pick one medium and use it forever, or you can switch it up constantly. You can paint, or sculpt, or weld or sew.
As a little girl, one of my favorite places was my grandparents’ house. Every time I traveled an hour south of Memphis to visit them, I felt transported into a different world.
Every day at my grandparents was the perfect kid vacation, I loved spending summers at their house. During my visits, my grandma would make me huge home cooked breakfasts with steaming biscuits fresh out the oven, white gravy, scrambled eggs, and a big glass of milk.
Last night my husband and I went to one of our favorite local restaurants—a little Indian restaurant that’s one of the best-kept secrets in town. It’s one of those places you drive by and would never try on your own. You only go there after someone recommends it to you. It’s a tiny little place where the tables are jam-packed together, and your neighbors are right next to you eating their dinner while you’re eating yours.
You have read about Awakening, but you don’t know if it is happening to you? This information will help. Keep reading.
Typically there are two types of awakening.
The Dramatic Oh-My-God-What-Is-Happening Awakening
This is the kind of awakening where literally your world falls apart. You have a traumatic accident, life-changing event, near-death experience, lose a job, spouse, home. Something big happens and you look around and your life is no longer what it used to be.
I talk to a lot of people in my work. Often times a client will start our conversation by saying, “This may sound crazy, but….
I can feel other people’s emotions
I am having weird dreams where I space travel
I see beings in my meditations
I know what other people are going to say before they say it
or, or, or.”
