“Service is the rent we pay for the privilege of living on this earth.”
I love this quote. When I first came across this it had such a huge impact on me and it reminded me of why we are all here and how we all have a mission on this planet whether it is in our jobs, our families and in anything else we are meant for or destined for in our lifetime across all lifetimes (if you believe in past lives). Yesterday saw another New Moon and the start of a new cycle. I am learning to love this part of nature’s natural cycle because it allows us such an opportunity to tap into the abundance of the Universe and what we truly desire. I have made my new moon wishes for this month and I decided to dream very big. Sometimes when we put out our desires to the Universe they don’t always make sense or they may seem so impossible to achieve that it would be so easy to shy away from them but the heart is such a powerful force. It is the embodiment of love and when we come from that place we can surely have faith in ourselves and the bigger picture no matter how impossible something may seem.
I know a lot of people comment on some of my successes and how much fun I look like I am having on social media when I post some of my positive posts but in the background where I don’t share the majority of my life, there is so much more that goes into achieving some of things I do and if I didn’t have any faith I wouldn’t do any of it. Most of the things I have done, I have had no idea how it was going to come into fruition. I decided in my mind that I would manifest them and set out firstly within my spiritual practice to focus on my vision and my mission. From there, I made a commitment to stay true to my visions no matter what. Life is too short to not try things and go for what you love. The worst that can come from it is our perceived failures if something doesn’t seem to work out but there is wisdom in every experience and nothing is ever a waste.
I decided I wanted to live my life without regrets and give things a try even if it scares me (especially if this happens). When you are faced with your mortality at a young age like I was, then it completely changes your perspective and outlook on life. It makes you realise that we don’t have an infinite amount of time here on Earth. In fact we don’t know how long we are here for and if we truly knew that then the question to ask is… ‘how would you live your life differently?’ That’s why the above quote had such an impact on me. As part of the collective, we each have a part to play and gifts to give. We can make lots of plausible excuses such as money and time to not do something but I believe that there is never a right time to do anything and you have to just do it.
Go for gold because your life is waiting for your beautiful gifts.
This week is a powerful week with the lead up to the Summer Solstice on Friday 21st June. It is the said to be the longest day of the year and brings us a new season filled with light and abundance which is probably welcomed by so many including myself. After the depths of winter and enduring the darkness in more ways than one it is so refreshing to know that there is light. It is coming and it is here. With the air of spring it brought us hope with signs of freshness. Seeds were being planted for growth and transformation on so many levels. As change is upon us again, it is the time to be seen and to bloom in full force with the hope and ideas from the spring season. Now is the time in all the seasons to take action and focus on the good. This makes all the difference in the world. When we focus on what is good and what is possible, it brings into alignment our truth and the desires our heart speaks. It is the time to honour them and give voice to the sunshine that lives within the heart. It is the way of the soul.
I don’t know about you but I always feel an impact when there is a seasonal shift. Some seasonal shifts affect me more than others but more than anything I am looking forward to the future and what it may bring. Also, I look forward to what I know it will bring because I have taken the steps I need to make things happen. To bring your dreams alive you have to take action. When you go through the depths of winter, it does something to you and relights your spark. I am in a place of gratitude with it all. When you finally allow yourself to leave the light on, life brings on new perspectives and dimensions. Sometimes I get to a place where I even feel like I’m in another dimension which allows me to transcend and bring positive change into my life.
What I find helps in keeping with focusing on the good is working with affirmations as a deliberate way to stay positive. Here are some awesome ones that I put together with this week’s theme:
I awaken this morning and greet this new day filled with happiness and enthusiasm for life.
I will radiate love and compassion and see the beauty in all of life.
I open my heart to Divine Light. I am Love.
I am radiant and allow the Divine Light of the Universe to guide my life in new and exciting ways.
My life is expanding in beautiful and miraculous ways.
Have a wonderful Summer Solstice beautiful readers! Sending blessings for the new season! May it bring you love, peace and abundance!
“No matter what may have happened yesterday, a new day of fresh possibility has dawned. You’re not the same person today as you were yesterday.” (Daisaku Ikeda)
Every moment is an opportunity to change your story and start again. As we move through our daily lives, we are always evolving even if we don’t realise it at the time. It is true that we are not the same person as we were yesterday. In some ways that can bring a great deal of comfort. It all depends on perspective.
Wherever we are in life is where we are meant to be. It is full of lessons and full of surprises too. The most important thing is to focus on what we have now and what we can do now. There is always something we can do… always.
I can think of many situations over the years that felt impossible to overcome but what has really helped me is to have that deep knowing and faith in something larger than myself. It has helped me to look beyond myself and see new possibilities. In doing so it has created space and allowed changes to bring forth what is needed for my soul evolution.
Sometimes in life we don’t get what we want but I believe we get what we need. Navigating ourselves through changes is not always easy and sometimes its best to go with the flow, letting our experiences reveal to us more of who we are and what we need to know when the time is right. In the meantime, be glad and appreciative of what you have and life will always give you more to be grateful for. Celebrate who you were and who you are becoming.
