There are rules at home. A specific curriculum at school. Procedures at work. Manners, etiquette, protocols, edicts, mandates, etc.…
Have you noticed that so much life conditioning inhibits the brilliance that is in us? From the time we can communicate, we are told how to behave, what to believe and which mold to fit in. In spite of (or because of) the messages that were ingrained in you as a child, are you sure that you are accessing all that is available to you? As a brilliant soul, as a brilliant human-being, as a brilliant spiritual being, as a bright light in the world, you have access to so much abundance!
Are you living it?
Are you breathing it?
Do you believe it in every fiber of your being?
We are not born broken; yet as the years pass and life happens, we are often told to fix things that contribute to our uniqueness which in turn makes us broken adults working our way back to a state of completeness. As a child, when you excelled in a particular area, were you told to humble yourself so you didn’t reveal anyone else’s inadequacies? Or, conversely, were your shortcomings highlighted and you made to feel small in comparison to others? Do you find yourself repeatedly giving up a part of yourself to appease someone else for the sake of various relationships? Have critical parents or other caregivers been condemnatory causing you to second guess your every decision? Planting doubt and insecurity in the fertile field of your self-consciousness? These things may have happened, but this programming is all a myth that society has sold you. This an illusion that you do not have to buy. Indeed, you have the power to overcome everything that is contrary to who you really are!
Truth is, so many of us have recognized the damage inflicted– intentional or not – during our upbringing that there is an emerging marketplace full of law of attraction tools and techniques designed to restore us to our newborn unbrokenness. These tools help us dismantle the illusions of safety, security and structures that create a prison of expectation, necessity and image that we were taught to chase. Instead, we need to get into the habit of playing in the mud, getting dirty, letting go and letting God, Magic, Source, Divine Energy (whatever belief/name suits you). You did it as a child. Bring it back to life again. Look within yourself – you are yearning for it.
Consider: why do we attempt to stifle individual strengths and skills and continually strive for a state of boring normalcy? As of this writing, there are roughly 7.53 billion people on the planet. Never mind the Stepford Wives; can you imagine living on Stepford Earth?
Les Brown said “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” Entire lives are wasted in an attempt to become something we were never meant to become. What if we all spent the balance of our lives living our ideal life and not the life that someone designed for us? What if we each decided to chase our dreams instead those envisioned for us? What if we LIVED OUT LOUD as opposed to confined to the box that society put us in?!
Get excited again about this adventure called life. Get curious and playful with your day-to-day, with your business, with your home, relationships, and finances. If you resist and prefer safety, security, and rigidity, I’m curious:
- How’s that working for you?
- Where are you still dissatisfied?
- What don’t you want to let go of?
- What’s it costing you?
There is a life that is meant for you – a life that is filled with all the good that you want for yourself and others. That life is your dream come true; it is your best life. Find a way to believe that you can have the life you dream of. The Universe will move to bring your best life to you when you do. Start believing today. Start right now! Life is too short for you to spend another second of it as a cast member in someone else’s show!
How will you know when you’re living your dream life? The alarm will go off and you’ll be excited to get out of bed!
