Do you every ask “what is my heart telling me?”….”what makes me happy?” and you’re just not sure what the heck it’s saying to you, let alone what to do?!
Yup, I can relate! In fact I can remember sitting with my journal thinking that it was extremely hard work to find my happiness! Ughhhh I would create some major confusion in my life and it was all for nothing because we are meant to do what we love every single day, at least I think so!
The other night Ryan and I went to Whole Foods and as we were walking through the healthy body section, picking out organic soaps and we saw these really awesome hats and instantly I said “it’s selfie time!!”, the best thing about Ryan is he’s always down for participating in my crazy ways….but the real truth behind this story is, I would never do this in public just a few years ago, I would be so embarrassed, so caught up in what others would think of me and I would NEVER allow myself to have fun or be spontaneous! I would put my happiness aside out of FEAR of what others might think of me.
I can remember I hated my job so much, but when I thought of quitting and starting my own business my fears blocked me because I was tangled in thinking people would judge, hate or reject me. So for years I didn’t listen to my heart and I muted myself. It’s time to start fresh, my love and get real with yourself and your heart!
It’s really cool when you can release any attachment to what others think of you and follow your intuition and heart…..
This might mean you need to listen to your heart and hear what makes you happy for work each day, look at where you want to go next, what you want to challenge yourself with and hold no judgement or hold back from doing it…even if it’s being goofy in the super market!
Ok, so HOW do you listen to your heart and how do you get back into flow with your intuition?
1. You must clear the mud!
If you’re not hearing or feeling what your heart is telling you, you must clear the “mud” that is blocking your flow and this will allow you to tap into your inner voice / intuition / calling, etc.
Try spending 10 min a day this week with your journal and just WRITE!
I’m feeling so confused, I am lacking direction for my life, I feel cluttered and unclear and I would love your guidance! What do I need to do today to be happy? Why do I feel confused? What is my next step………”
…and keep writing! You will get to the point where your answers will come back to you right in your journal and it will feel so RIGHT!
You will know what you need to do to release your blocks and get into flow!
2. Be open.
If you’re ready to be happy and make the commitment to follow your heart each day and feel rewarded, you have to be OPEN to this.
This transition will not take over night, you will need to be committed and you can not dig up your seeds! When you know what you want, but you aren’t seeing the FAST results, stay on track! Just like you do at the gym! You won’t see your 6 pack after 1 day of doing crunches, heck no! It takes time, but you know you will get there, so believe and don’t dig up your seeds!
3. Ask people close to you – “What do you feel I’m really good at?”
Sometimes it just takes someone telling you what they know you’re great at for you to see what you’re great at! This is a great starting point for you to open up to your brightness and shine, baby!
4. Be still.
Anytime you want the answer from your heart, you must get still.
The answers are ALWAYS within you. Every problem you have, has a solution wrapped up in it. Trust me
You just need to ASK!
I hope this post helps you find what your heart is telling you! I’d love to hear, comment below!
