Do you feel free to live the way you want to live? Are you free to create the life you desire? If not, why not?
Voltaire said, “Man is free the instant he wants to be.” But to be free, you have to make the choice, the conscious choice.
What does that look like? Well, you choose to follow your internal GPS, not others’ advice and expectations. You stop creating ‘shoulds’ and start opening up to the flow of life. You get out of your own way.
And you get INTO your soul’s way. In other words, you step into what your soul wants, guides and leads you to. You say ‘yes’ to it. You embrace its wisdom and knowing. You let go to its power and certainty — no matter what it looks like.
Yes, you read that correctly — “no matter what it looks like”. I can hear some of you questioning this, saying, “But what if my soul wants me to do something I don’t like?” I know because I used to have this same question.
The answer is — you will always be excited, thrilled, inspired and joyful if you are doing what your soul calls you to do — no matter what that looks like. So don’t worry…when you are following your soul’s calling, you will feel fulfilled and happy, no matter what you’re doing.
Follow your inspiration, follow your inner knowing, follow that internal voice that speaks softly (not the loud, insistent voice of your mind). Let go and give in to your soul’s greatest desires — and you will know happiness, the feeling of living your purpose, and the feeling of freedom.
For some it helps to have a short saying, a mantra if you will, to repeat to themselves, to remind them of what’s important. Instead of saying “So be it”, try saying “Soul be it”. Repeat this in your head, with your inner voice, anytime you need a reminder to get into your soul’s way.
Choose to step onto your soul’s path, get with its program, follow its lead, and you will be in the flow of the divine spark, the meaning of life, living freely, and living your unique purpose here.
One of the amazing things that begins to happen when you do this is that life begins to support you, resources show up, people and connections appear to help you, and you begin to move forward, at times with an effortless feeling. At other times, the work you do produces results far beyond anything explicable or practical. It’s like magic happens.
Here’s an example of this: When I first started my hypnosis business, I did not feel inspired to advertise it in the traditional way. Instead I felt very inspired to rely on word-of-mouth for new clients. I did have a website and business cards, but not much else.
One day I got a call from someone who said she had seen my business mentioned on a website (not my website). She told me the name of the site and was very enthusiastic about my services, based on what she had read. After I scheduled her for her first appointment, I looked for that site — and never found it.
Thinking this wasn’t possible, that the site had to be there, I checked daily for quite some time — and you guessed it, I never found the site or any reference to it. Some of you might have pursued this further, but I gave up and realized what had happened. It was one of those divinely-guided daily miracles that occur when you are on your path. She was obviously meant to come see me, and life arranged the meeting.
This is the kind of flow that is created when you step into your soul’s way and live freely!
