What is passion? Dictionary definitions include “a powerful emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger; ardent love; strong sexual desire; lust; the object of such love or desire; boundless enthusiasm or the object of such enthusiasm; an abandoned display of emotion, especially of anger”, and so on.
This post is about passion in the sense of powerfully focused emotion/enthusiasm. Your passions can be an excellent indicator of what you are here to do.
In my understanding and the premise of my coaching and work shops, we are composed of three “selves.” First there is the ego. The language of the ego is words based in duality.
Next is the soul. The language of the souls is feelings, hunches and symbols.
Then there is our Self. This is the part of us that is eternal, never changing and its language is energy.
We’re going to discuss passion, which comes from your soul. So here are a few questions. I’d like you to answer them as quickly as possible and notice your feelings and emotions as you do.
- What do you love?
- What do you know?
- What do you desire?
- What do you excel at?
- What do you focus on?
- What do you see that others don’t?
- What do you need to integrate? That means getting your system lined up with what you want, on all levels.
These are seven components that can reveal your passion.
Let’s now take a closer look at them
What Do You Love?
When you love someone or something, then you tend to see the best in that person or topic, and openly lend yourself to its care and support. This opens up you up for compassion and light. You are more naturally light-hearted and enlightened about those things you love, and this increases your desire and ability to learn about that person or subject.
Remember when you were in love? And how you wanted to know everything about your beloved? Well, some people feel the same about medicine, design, or engineering: it’s endlessly fascinating if that is the object of your love. Well, if that topic is part of your blueprint, you will have a similar enduring fascination. So what you love is going to be part of what you are here to do. In fact, learning to love is one of our required courses during this lifetime.
What Do You Know?
Your inner blueprint is always going to combine your previous experiences and types of training, no matter how diverse. Whatever you did and learned in the past adds to your unique skill set and perspective, both of which can be used in the service of your divine blueprint once you are in alignment.
What Do You Desire?
What do you lean in to? What do you feel the lack of when it’s absent, and enjoy when it reappears? Contrary to some religious positions that distrust desire, or see it as the root of all suffering, I believe that desire is your firmest connection between your soul and your human self, between the seen and unseen fields.
Through desire, your soul is attempting to guide you using your emotions. When you have expanded feelings, it means “go here – do this!” Contracted or negative feelings mean “not this one”. So you can use your desire nature to find out what you are here to engage with. Usually your desires are positive, and bring you joy or pleasure. Of course, sometimes the lesson is “don’t do this again!”
What Do You Excel At?
If you are designed to do something specific, you will naturally have the resources to fulfill your assignment. You come fully loaded with the talents and programs you require to thrive! So many people think they should do this or that, and then look at how they can train as an accountant, doctor, architect, or whatever.
They think about what might work for them, rather than asking what their inner blueprint calls for. People who go the conventional route tend to get burnt out by their 40s, because the work they do is out of alignment for their lives. It’s so much more efficient and enjoyable to listen within and find out what programs you already have, and what you require to polish that up and express it. Mozart had an innate genius for composition; he just needed to practice the piano, and fortunately was born to a father who taught keyboards. Now, that’s the way to learn excellence!
What Do You Focus On?
By universal law, what you focus on expands in your life. You always focus on what’s important to you, for good or ill. Some people appear to relish suffering, martyrdom, poverty and depression – at least they stay focused on stress or pain. Your focus says a lot about what your soul and ego finds important. One person devotes a lot of time to staying fit and healthy; another speaks/writes/thinks about spiritual issues all the time.
Yet another is fascinated by numbers and spends all her time on mathematics and physics. Someone else loves order, and becomes an accountant (as well as keeping a tidy home and having a haircut every month). Your focus shows up everywhere in your life, not just your profession, though of course, it’s best to have a profession that uses your natural focus! Fortunately it’s usually easy to identify your natural focus, because (of course) you’ll be spending a lot of time doing whatever that is.
What Do You See That Others Don’t?
This identifies your area of service, and thus what you are passionate about. Serving humanity, the planet, and Infinite Intelligence is about seeing problems and creating wonderful solutions that restore, improve or create better conditions for everyone. In order to solve a problem, you have to see that there is a problem. The more precisely and clearly you see a particular problem, the more likely it is that you are part of the solution, and the greater passion you will have for solving it.
We each have a unique vision of the world, and we can use that to help co-create heaven on earth. This applies equally to the negative (situations that are out of whack) and positive (your vision of how great and wonderful things could be). Your vision will indicate your unique contribution to rebuilding the world.
What Do You Need To Integrate?
Most of us have issues that need to be resolved, and goals that need to be integrated so that we can get back in alignment with who we truly are. Integration means bringing your goals into harmony with your field so that what you desire becomes possible for you. A goal is anything you want that you don’t have yet.
Most people don’t attain their goals because they have unconscious conflicts that are creating defocus, problems and frustration. When those conflicts are resolved the probable’s become possible.
- So what are you passionate about?
- Where does your enthusiasm show itself most strongly?
- Or are you still searching?
Your passion is a roadmap that points to why you are here and what is it you are here to do. The Awakened Warrior has strong passions and they know they are on a path with heart
Many of us have to search and work at it. This is mainly from external “pressure” from friends, culture or society, and that can be distracting until one learns that being who you are is the most important thing you in life.
