Each one of us has the power and intuition to create a unique path in life that satisfies our mind, body, and spirit. This path already exists in the fabric of time and space, it’s merely up to us to discover the proper choices and actions we must make to contour our reality towards this path. We’ve been placed on this planet to create our own realities – and we can, if we hone in on our intuition, values, and passions.
Determining Your True Life’s Path
What does life consist of? Everyone will answer this differently – just make a list: Sleep, work, family, friends, entertainment (sports, dance, music, hobbies, etc.). And now, think of what your ultimate desires are.To have a perfect body? To become a famous author? To own a multi-million dollar business? Even think of the smaller goals, such as simply getting that bachelor’s degree or becoming free of all debt. Write them all down, because when you see it written before you on paper in your own handwriting, you’re sending energy into the universe that states, “Yes – I want to accomplish this!”
Once you’ve done this, you can see, on paper, where you want your life to go. These are your goals. Now, we must refine our path to reach these goals. Remember, we’ve chiseled our own path to reach this point in space and time that we stand in right here and now – we can keep on chiseling our path to meet the goals written before us. We have the power within us, it’s up to us to pull it from the depths of our being and bring it all out to share with the world.
Become familiar with what you want to fill your life’s time with, for time determines our path. The longer we wait to figure out where we want to go in life, the less time we have to reach our true desires
Knowing You’re On Your True Life’s Path
You know you’re on your true life’s path when you stop questioning yourself; when you look forward to awaking in the morning instead of falling asleep at night;when you are capable of seeing the joy in every moment.
Every moment may not seem joyful, but if you’re able to comprehend that hard work will push you towards that joyous moment – your ultimate goal – then you are succeeding in following your life’s path.
Each step we take must be enjoyed or looked upon with purpose, and if we question our choices and actions, then we must stop and ask ourselves: Are my decisions taking me in the right direction?
Meditate. It doesn’t have to be too formal. Simply sit down in a quiet space and focus on your breathing. What’s the first thing that pops into your mind? A worry? A distraction? Focus on this worry or distraction and figure out how to eliminate it from your life. It’s possible. Create a plan. Tap into your intuition.
Recognizing & Responding to Distractions
Each day we live our life as best we can. We attempt to make the right decisions, even when we don’t know what they are. We try to respond to situations in intelligent ways, pursuing wisdom as we balance ourselves on our path. But how do we know we’ve become distracted?
Analyze the energies you surround yourself with.
Chances are, there is someone in your life that influences the way you think – and not in a way that’s good for your mentally or spirituality. I once had a friend in high school that conditioned me to enjoy poking fun at others. Once I separated myself from her after graduation, I realized that such a mentally was not me. I was only being fooled by the outside forces I surrounded myself with.
Analyze your sleep, work, and hobbies. They’re what you fill your time with. If they don’t bring joy to your life, change them. You need a good night’s rest full of REM sleep, along with work and hobbies that are fulfilling, pushing you towards your ultimate desires and goals.
And remember – take life one day at a time.
