I could have also called this post “What You Must Know to Live a Life of Power, Purpose and Passion with Perseverance.”
Well here we are…the last days of life on earth…or is it?
I’m sure you’ve heard that on December 21, 2012 is the end of the Long Count Mayan calendar. This is also supposed to be end of time. Of course no REALLY knows what this means or what WILL actually happen. So how about if we looked at this as a great adventure!
In the book “2012 and the End of the World” , Matthew Restall and Amara Solari (the author’s) describe Western civilization’s expansion across the Atlantic brought apocalyptic ideas which thrive in North America. And when a predicted apocalypse didn’t materialize, doomsday predictions didn’t stop, they simply moved from one end-of-world date to the next, i.e. New Years of 2000.
The authors explain “In recent decades no year has escaped prophecies of doom; regardless of when you are reading these words, you will find online a prediction that the end is months, if not days, away.”
One of my morning affirmations I repeat while doing my meditative walk is “I create the energy that supports the manifestation of my goals.”
Beside entertainment value, I have no use for people, news reports, idea, and energy that does not support me in the creation of my goals and dreams, this includes any doomsday predictions!
I have the responsibility to either remove myself from the non-supportive energy or assist them (if they are a client) to shift their focus and concentration to a more supportive consciousness that will help them manifest what they want.
Yes, the world we live in is certainly changing, and lots of things ARE coming to an end, they must…it’s part of life. And although 12-12-12 may signify the end, my projection is that is just the end of 2012 and we’ll all move one into the next year of our life.
So, since you are here and now (if you aren’t here you wouldn’t be reading this) and will be moving forward with your life…whether you like it or not, the most important and fulfilling thing you can be do is decide to live a life of power, purpose and passion!
To help you with this I’m going to go over 7 falsehood of a life purpose. During The Warriors Quest intensive we cover these deeper and for now I hope they at least start you thinking.
This list is by no means inclusive and most of the points I’ve realized through research of ancient texts, working with others, and through my own life experience.
Living a life of power, purpose and passion is about identify that one passion that you want to share with the world and allowing the desire to do so “inform” you what to do.
This is basically listening to your Soul.
Yes, this will cause the “death” of the old you and it will give birth to a new you! This “new” you will have a fire for living, as zest for life and commitment to your future.
You have important work to do in the short time you are here; it’s essential that you get your life focused on your passions so you can engage them on a daily basis.
When you align your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual “bodies” along with our three “selves” (ego, Soul and Self) you will manifest abundance in your environment and relationships. How you spend your time each day and the choices you make will all be informed by and support your highest good in order to fulfill your life’s purpose.
When this starts happening it feels oh soooo good…you are in flow. You will be finally on your path and doing what you are here to do.
Just to let you know that your purpose is NOT a destination, it is something you life everyday. Your passions will have a material aspect to them and the realization of them will probably not happen overnight, and that is all part of the adventure!
However, when approached consciously, things can happen relatively quickly. Moment by moment saying YES to your passions and what is on your path, and ignoring what is not on your path, begins to get you aligned. Your life force energy flows into your dreams and you begin to manifest them.
To help with your internal alignment of your power, purpose and passions below are seven common falsehoods that might be holding you back from fully realizing who you are:
Falsehood #1: “It’s too late for me” or “I’m too old and missed my chance.”
Reality: It’s NEVER too late. If you’re still here, you are here for a reason (nothing exists without one) and you have time. Get on with it.
Falsehood #2: “Leap and ‘my wings will grow’ on the way down” or “Leap and a net will appear.”
Reality: Plan, plan, and plan, then leap and then you’ll grow wings on the way down. Do not expect them to grow by themselves – they won’t. With regards to the net, put your own net there, then leap. Again, don’t expect one to magically appear for you; better to put it there yourself.
Falsehood #3: “Follow your passion, do what you love and the money will follow.”
Reality: No it won’t. If that happens for some people, it’s out of pure luck, because this is NOT a law. Manifesting money, like manifesting anything else in life, requires focus and competence. To the extent you focus on manifesting money and build your competence in that arena, while at the same time doing what you love, it’s quite likely that money will flow from your efforts.
Also, I don’t know if you’re like me but I love and am passionate about a lot of things. Which one should I follow? I came to realize that we have personal passions and passions we feel compelled to share with the world. When you know the difference, you’ll know which to create a living from.
Falsehood #4: “You can be anything you want.”
Reality: No you can’t, well you can, but when you are aligned completely, your “wanting” will take care of itself. You are no longer the “kid in the candy shop.” You know exactly what you want. This is a self-inflicted torture thinking you can be anything you want. Don’t let the wanting drive your decisions; let your alignment inform you.
Falsehood #5: “The purpose of life is material success” or “If one is successful in the material area of life, then they are successful in all areas of life.”
Reality: For me the purpose of life is Soulful evolution. This is the constant expansion of your capabilities to be and manifest who you are. This is typically achieved by overcoming adversity and challenge, barriers both real and perceived. Manifesting material goods is a byproduct your Soul challenge. You can attract only what you are capable of “holding.” The more you expand yourself the more you can hold.
Falsehood #6: “You need formal education, training, and credentials to make a difference.”
Reality: You need competence to make a difference. This is developed and obtained in many ways, of which formal education and training is only one. In addition, when you are on the path of your authentic purpose, you do not need “others” to validate you.
If you’ve done your Soul work to become the open channel for your life force, then the Universe is the only credentials and authority you need. And believe me you “feel” this…when you get this…deep down…others will instinctively know this as well.
People will get that your power comes from the Universe and not from external credentials or letters after your name. God, Universal Intelligence, Great Spirit, Source Energy, what ever label you use, is the most powerful credential there is.
When you have aligned your four “bodies” and three “selves” your power, purpose and passion will be the only “authority” you will ever need.
Falsehood#7: “If anything is going to happen, it’s up to me to make it happen.”
Reality: There are two parts to this. The first is really…I’m really how much is in your control? You may have the illusion of control, but if you look closer, the only thing you really have control over is yourself.
Part two is that Non-local intelligence has infinite organizing power and can make things happen far beyond what your physical self may be able to think about, much less orchestrate. The Universe unfolds things when the intent or desire is aligned, that is authentic. Your job is to align your “bodies” and “selves” so that when you live your life of power, purpose and passion that manifestations of your desires will be effortless.
Finding your passion by aligning your four bodies, three selves and then living YOUR life of power, passion, purpose with preference is focus of The Warriors Quest. It helps you get out of your own way, find what gives you energy and removes that which does not.
A very simple way to identify what is aligned with your life purpose is to look at what gives you energy vs. what takes it. Those things that give you energy, that you look forward to and really enjoy, are most likely aligned with your life purpose. Those things that you dread and resist are most likely not aligned with your life purpose.
Take out a piece of paper right now, draw a line down the middle and label the left column “Gives energy to me” and label the right column “Takes energy from me.” Then write down all the things you do each day, putting them in the column that best represents how you feel before, during, and after that activity.
If you feel mostly positively energized, put it in the “Gives energy to me” column. If you feel mostly negatively drained, put it in the “Takes energy from me” column.
Then look back over the columns.
See if you notice any patterns – are there common themes you see regarding the things that give you energy? Are there common themes for the things that take energy from you?
Are the things that give you energy done come from a place of love and the things that do not give you energy come from a place of fear and obligation?
Now choose one or more things on the list of items that give you energy and decide right now to do MORE of those things. Then, choose things on the list of items that take energy from you and decide to do LESS of those things.
Great job! You’re one step closer to living a life of fulfillment and meaning…a life of power, purpose and passion!
