Where am I going and how do I get there?
Where am I going? Are you happy with where your life is right now?
In this blog I ask a series of questions to help you think deeply about the relationship between where you are going in your life; and where you want to be going. I aim to form a link between the two to help you understand how to focus with intent and create the life of your dreams. It may surprise you just how simple it can be!
Where am I going – Questions to consider
Are you happy with where your life is right now?
Can you see change on the horizon or is your view blocked by doubt?
What intentions do you have for making your life completely fulfilling in every way?
Did you make conscious decisions or unconscious decisions that brought you to where you are at present?
How many external influences dictate your actions and your journey along the way?
Have you told yourself you’re a failure? That you don’t deserve luck. That you’re not worth it. Only good things happen for other people. I’ll never make it. Or something similar?
Are you at ‘A’ but wanting to get to ‘Z’ and not sure on how, or afraid of taking a leap of faith? Or did you think, what-if I don’t make it..what then?
Scared to voice, even to yourself what you truly, truly desire? Or have your thoughts and emotions become so entangled you don’t know, or have never known?
How your mind chatter influences “Where I am going”
If you are occupied and distracted by the constant chatter of your mind – the continual whirl of ‘what if’ conversations; or the dreaming up of scenarios that never eventuate, what kind of world is the monkey chatter creating for you? Who is in control?
All this mindless internal chatter might indicate your heart is not being heard and the door is closed. When this happens our soul light dimmers. A darkness descends and our cells go quiet; our body grows tired, feeling weary and listless.
To gain back control and truly get on a pathway to the life of your dreams, it’s important to create a quiet time to reflect on where you are, or where you are going versus where you want to go. When we turn our focus to wanting the best for our self, and open our minds to how we want our life to be, a light flickers on. This light becomes brighter and brighter – illuminating our path so we get to where we want to be.
Guidance on how to work out where you’re going and how to get there
So maybe it is time to sit; to ponder; to feel; and not think.
Find a quiet spot where you won’t be distracted, and tune in and listen to your deeper feelings.
Allow yourself to actually feel them, and not be afraid of the guidance or answers that spring from your heart.
Allow your deepest wants to surface regardless of the fears that pop up whilst you contemplate.
Whatever arises, write it down.
Write a journal about your true feelings. What you want. What you desire.
Imagine them as real.
Play in them.
Turn up the colour; increase the volume; and immerse yourself in the joy that flows from your heart.
This will have you feeling uplifted, hopeful and believing in your future.
As sure as the air we breathe, your heart will sing when you allow it to express what has always been there but you may have forgotten. What you may have hidden away out of sight and out of mind.
When we turn our focus to wanting the best for our self, and open our minds to how we want our life to be, a light flickers on which becomes brighter and brighter illuminating our path so we get to where we want to be.
