This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Helen Evans. You can find her on the web at www.stepintoyourlight.com.
So many people teach on how to make money doing what you love but it is my experience that a HUGE percentage of people out there have no idea what they love, they are directionless and constantly seeking a way forward. What is your advice to discover what you love, your true passion, the thing that inspires and excites you to be more than your current self, to be your true self?
Thanks for submitting this question, Helen.
You know, I have met very few people who truly don’t know what their passion is or what they love. If you ask anyone what lights them up, what inspires them, or what they are passionate about, you’ll usually get an answer.
The problem begins when they attempt to think about how they could possibly do what they love and make money. Many people had dreams as a child. They fantasized about dancing, painting, writing, or even of being a fireman or a championship fisherman. But somewhere over the years, they got the message that what they were dreaming about wasn’t ok. That is was nothing more than wishful thinking.
So they left their dreams and focused on more “practical” things. They shut off their dreaming.
Then they wake up one day and wonder who they really are, if this is as good as it gets, and THEN they begin to tap back into the dreaming.
I’ve asked this question many times to my students, and some common responses are, “Well, I LOVE to garden. I feel at home there. But, well, that’s just a hobby…” or “I could sit for hours and paint, but that will never pay my bills.” I see their face light up, their energy change, and yet, even though Spirit has given them this wonderful gift, they go on day to day doing things that keep them unhappy and unfulfilled.
For others, they don’t even want to verbalize what they are passionate about because it would mean opening themselves up to ridicule.
Everyone has secret thoughts… thoughts that they share with no one. For anyone who is struggling to find their passion, I suggest that you get very quiet and just listen.
Ask yourself what you’re passionate about.
Ask yourself what you would do if money didn’t matter.
Don’t censor what comes in to your head. You may even want to write a few things down, and I encourage you to do that. Tap back into your inner child and just let yourself dream…
Afterall, manifestation is nothing more than becoming aware of what already exists, and if you are thinking it, that means the way is also present.
