Hi dear one,
A lot of us wait for permission from somebody or wait for a certain situation to change before we give ourselves a chance to develop an idea that has been brewing in our heart and mind, right?
My question to you is, do you really need the situation to completely change before you give yourself permission to follow your heart’s desire?
If this resonates with you, here are some helpful perspectives.
First of all, we might be fearing the disapproval of people who don’t even matter to us or who don’t have our best interests in mind. So take a step back and decide whose opinions matter to you and whose don’t. As for the latter category, make a decision to disengage and distance yourself from their perspectives.
If it’s a loved one whose opinion and presence are dear to you, and they aren’t supportive of your dream, it could very well be that they simply need to be nudged. Some people need to see the courage of your decision, your willpower and how you go about giving importance to your dreams before they actually have that “Aha!” moment and start respecting you for what you are thinking or your ideas. It might be their own fears or insecurities or a desire to keep you and themselves safe that could be the reason for their resistance.
Ultimately, the only person who needs to give you permission is you yourself. Give yourself that permission and the rest will fall into place – it’s not going to be easy, but that’s the case with everything that’s worthwhile in life. Good luck and I will see you soon!
Just like the powerful elephant chained to a peg, most of us move through life never realizing our potential or even daring to give it a shot. You can choose to defy the norms, believe in your power and make some bold decisions. Don’t let your conditioning stop you.

Much spoken about in recent times, what does it really mean for you? 🤔

⤵️ A sense of hollowness deep inside your heart and/or your gut despite all the achievements which are “perfect” on paper (an envious career, an impressive lifestyle, a family, friends). You sense a hunger to know more than what meets the eye.
⤵️ Disconnection from what your health needs – denying yourself nutritious food on time by forgetting or being too busy, reliance on smoking or alcohol a lot more than you even enjoy.
⤵️ Failing health – the wakeup calls are getting stronger.
⤵️ Being frequently irritated at work and home. Small instances, even pleasant interactions might infuriate you.

⚡ You live in authentic joy that comes from true connection – loving relationships … a career that does justice to your potential, skills values .. a beautiful relationship with your body, caring for yourself comes with ease…
⚡ You are able to enjoy and pursue material successes from a place of gratitude and fulfillment (no more competition, no rat races anymore, but you operate from a place of contribution)
⚡ You are happy from deep within that you are a constant source of joy and inspiration for others. You are able to visualize and manifest the best life for yourself and your loved ones.
⚡ You are inspired to reach for your deepest potential despite any challenge or fears, because you are so in alignment with your true blueprint – your life’s purpose.
⚡ Your body, mind and soul are in such divine alignment that every moment brings joy, calm and fulfillment.
🚨 4 years ago I would’ve turned away at the first instance “life purpose” was mentioned. A few wakeup calls happened in between and in such quick succession – experiences that were hard to live through. I needed something to hold on to, something to believe in, something larger than myself. Walking that hard path I realized that all that I was looking for was within me. My beliefs had to shift for me to survive and I did. My exploration led to own my path and walk on it with courage, which till today I humbly and gratefully do.

🔥 Each of us has a brilliance, a spark of divinity that we are born with. We are more powerful than we give ourselves credit for.
🔥 Living in denial – just because society will disapprove or it feels too destabilizing or whatever it is that’s holding you back – sooner or later causes a disconnection from our awareness of ourselves, from what makes us truly happy, from our loved ones, from our values as a human being, from living in physical/mental/spiritual – just like I did until those wakeup calls.
🔥 Living in connection – puts us directly in touch with our gifts, gives us choices to express ourselves in bold, beautiful ways that inspire us and those around us. We are uplifted in the spirit of connection and contribution.
🔥 It is our right, an absolute gift to claim our unique path in life and live it unabashedly.
🔥 Health, happiness and wealth can be delightful side effects

To put it succinctly, it’s an exploration that the most committed are gifted to experience. Every step on that journey is a well-earned gift, opening us to our own gifts and brilliance. There is no destination to get to, you quickly realize, because all the fruits are planted along the path.

💡 What were those moments from the time I can remember until now that have made you feel the happiest, fulfilled, crying tears of joy and love?
💡 Which qualities and skills of yours do you most enjoy expressing especially in relation to others (teaching someone a new skill, constructing someone’s dream home, writing a book helping teenagers cope with changes, etc.)
💡 Is there a pattern emerging once you carefully consider the first 2 questions that could be an intersection of what lights you up and earn an income from?
Now observe/ask yourself:
☀️How often do you have those experiences and moments in your daily life including career?
☀️If not often enough and if you desire these, what needs to change? Those are the first hints to creating your action plan.

It’s your life and you’re blessed with all the resources to make it spectacular. ☀️🎊
