In a recent ezine article I wrote, I was talking about purpose, and how by tuning into your heart’s wisdom for guidance on every step of your journey your purpose will naturally unfold for you.
In your heart lies the pure essence of who you authentically are. It’s the light that shines through you when you’re being completely yourself, free from fears, insecurities, judgements, self doubts and other negative conditioning.
It is the key to harmony in every one of us and of a new world consciousness. The change that needs to happen is not something ‘out there’, its something that needs to shift in our own life. It is your truth and it always leads you in the direction of growth and expansion to create your best self.
Following your heart is a big leap of faith into the unknown
The challenge we constantly face is that this direction of growth and expansion leads us into the unknown. And when that happens, in jump all the voices of the ego-mind telling us it’s not a good idea, it’s not possible, we’re not good enough, clever enough, special enough, it’s too scary, I’m not ready, I can’t do it; and then come all the alternative suggestions that the mind comes up with in order to find a solution.
It’s chaos in there! No wonder it’s often so difficult to make a decision. There are so many voices it seems impossible to tell the difference between them and we stall out in procrastination because we don’t want to make the wrong choice!
We all find ourselves here. You can’t escape it. It’s all part of the path of growth. The secret is to recognise when you’re in confusion, stop what you’re doing and create quiet time and space to reconnect with yourself.
Listen to your heart – it has all the answers you need for your life right now
Making it a regular practice to listen to your heart through meditation, journaling and asking for higher guidance makes it possible to live an inspired life that lights you up and brings you joy and fulfilment.
But sometimes you can still find yourself really stuck in spite of regular practice. You might feel like you’re banging your head against an invisible ceiling that you just can’t seem to get past. Or you might have a big dream for your life or your business but don’t know where to start in building it because of the overwhelming amount of possibilities available.
When you’re following an unfamiliar path to your dream, take a guide
If you find yourself in this place then you should really consider finding a coach or mentor. It’s their job to keep you focused, motivated, on track and accountable. They’ll hold your hand through the scary bits but won’t do it for you, and they’ll be your biggest cheer leaders because they know that in order for you to have the dream, there always exists the solution to create it. That’s just how the universe works.
Every coach is different because they all have a unique collection of life experiences and personal expertise. You just need to match what they’re offering to what you need, ask them for an initial chat to see if you’re the right fit for each other, check in with your heart to see if it feels right for you, and then make the commitment to yourself by investing.
If you’re ready to take your next big leap to follow what’s in your heart and you want some support, then I invite you to have a complimentary discovery call with me to see if working together with my Heart-Aligned coaching will help you to step into the life you’re meant to live. Just email me with your interest and we can arrange a time to speak by phone or Skype.
I love working with heart-centred women who want to live amazing lives – that’s what makes my life amazing!
