… helps you to discover who you really are.

Finding yourself is a life-long journey and it starts with the search for clarity — “Who am I? What makes me happy? What’s my purpose? Why do people treat me the way they do?”

We all ask these questions but why ask them if we’re not willing to hear the answers and act upon them?

When you’re consciously walking through your life, you’re awake. You get it. You see it. You feel it. You don’t ignore it. You don’t push it aside and brush it under the rug. You listen to it, integrate it and transform because of it.

But when you’re sleepwalking your way through your life, you miss all the significance and you miss the simple synchronicities that are meant to transform you and the path you’re walking.

Pay attention to your life, it’s trying to tell you something. There’s a rhyme and reason for every situation and every person you encounter in life. And the more you understand that, the better your life gets. And the sooner you understand that, the faster the rewards come.

There’s a deeper meaning to your life if you’re willing to be conscious of it. The universe is always whispering the answers to you, you just have to become adept to hearing the responses and identifying the next step.

You’re never alone and you’re never without answers. The universe gives you several spiritual tools to help you to understand who you are and why your life is unfolding the way it is. Life is a process of uncovering yourself. Are you still hiding from yourself or are you ready to be found. Whenever you’re ready, the rest of your life is waiting to begin.

… it’s right for you.

If it depletes you, it holds no value for you.

When making decisions you always want to follow your emotional guidance system. It tells you everything you need to know about WHAT’S RIGHT for you.

Passion is your purpose — it will always lead you to the right places. Don’t doubt the inspiration coming through you. It doesn’t have to make sense. You only have to trust it and move towards it.

When you move in the direction of things that make you happy/excited/inspired, you are open to the possibilities. When you resist your inspiration and ignore what feels exciting to you, you kill the impetus for change and keep yourself locked in a pattern of frustration and stagnation.

Not everything in life is meant to be difficult. Life is meant to be joyful. Why listen to the voices of despair when the voices of excitement are so much more encouraging.

Trust your intuition — if it excites you, it’s right for you. If it depletes you, it holds no value for you. It’s your life — you’re the only one who knows the difference.

… run towards it.

It has something for you. If it triggers you, it teaches you. 

But in our world, we are conditioned to run from fear rather than embrace it.

Buying into the fear, buries you. Facing the fear, transforms you.

If you resist what you fear, it will forever haunt you. But if you face it, you can begin to bring light to it and transform it. Don’t fear the darkness, the unknown brings opportunity.

If the caterpillar got lost in the darkness of the cocoon and gave up the fight, he would never give birth to the beauty of his wings.

Don’t stay stuck in a pattern of fear, you’ll never emerge into the light and without the light, there can no clarity.

Don’t run from what you fear, run towards it. If you fear it, it’s important for your growth, so have at it. If you keep running from it, it’ll come back with a vengeance and take you out. So face your fear head on, tell it to give you its best shot and in doing so, you’ll stand up to it and learn the lesson from it. Fear has no control over you unless you give it.

… you have to LET GO of something.

But many us hold onto the burdens of the past and drag them with us. If there is something that is weighing heavy on you and not uplifting you, it may be time to let it go.

The emotional and physical baggage that we drag along with us never gets lighter, it accumulates until eventually it buries us. What in your life are you not dealing with? What are you dragging around with you? If you allow yourself to keep struggling with someone or something in your life, it only brings you down.

If you want to lighten your load, you have to be willing to let go of what is not working in your life in order to make room for what will. You cannot have both.

No one is burdening you — you are choosing to drag what isn’t working in your life around with you. As soon as you decide that you are ready to let go of what is not working, you will create the space to find what will.

Your baggage is your own. Pack lightly. Remember, you carry it all with you.

… it’s the VIBRATION behind it that makes all the difference.

It’s not what you do, it’s WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE DOING that determines the outcome. 

Everything is energy. Your thoughts are always creating your reality. If you do one thing, but THINK SOMETHING ELSE about it, you are undermining the very action you are taking.

Your thoughts must be aligned with the action you are taking or they will NEVER manifest. 

For example, if you are pitching new business and you give a presentation, but secretly feel unprepared or as if you don’t have the experience necessary or if you are worried you will never land the account, that vibration is what manifests because it is the dominant vibration you are offering. It is the energy you are putting out into the universe.

Action can only take you so far. Your vibration is what closes the deal. 

Don’t waste your time and energy on physical action alone. It is limiting. You can walk the walk, but if your “self talk” is negative, it will take you down. 

Energy is everything. It isn’t about the action that you take in life, it’s the vibration behind it that determines the outcome. What’s in your vibration?

… but not always for the reasons you think.

If someone is standing right in front of you, they are there for a reason. That relationship has something to teach you or contribute to you. But it may not be what you are expecting or hoping for. 

We tend to label relationships before we understand their purpose in our lives.

Not every relationship is meant to be in your life forever, but it is meant to be in your life for a purpose. 

For example…

Not every love relationship leads to marriage. Some guarantee heartache so you can learn what real love doesn’t look like.

Not every business partnership leads to success. Some ensure failure so you’ll understand how to become successful on your own.

Not every friendship leads to lifetime loyalty. Some encourage betrayal so you’ll learn to trust yourself and rely on your own inner power.

Not every employee respects your power. Some challenge it so you can learn to step fully into that power and own it.

Not every team player supports your team’s initiatives. Some push back on them so you can learn to evolve those initiatives in a stronger way.

Relationships may not always give you what you want; but they’ll always give you what they came to give.

Every relationship is purposeful; your only job is to identify the purpose and let it off the hook for everything else.

… doesn’t make things easier for you.

It makes them HARDER.

Things may not always go the way you intended them to go and that has to be ok. Sure it might be upsetting and sure you might have wished you’d done things differently, and sure you might’ve even tried another approach to fix things but unfortunately was unable. What do you do now?

You can’t change what’s done. Focusing on the disappointment of the past keeps you trapped there. Learning the lesson from that experience frees you to move on.

Learning what you will never do again is by far one of the most powerful lessons one can learn. Transformation is never easy. If it doesn’t hurt, it’ll probably never change you.

Being hard on yourself is never the answer. Transformation is hard work. If you beat yourself up over your learning process, you’ll just impede your growth. Mistakes make you better if you learn from them. Don’t waste your time lamenting those mistakes, use that time to apply the learning and make your future better because of it.
