One emotion and state of mind that most people feel is the most difficult to deal with is the sense of not having any clarity about anything. We feel powerless, clueless and frustrated by not knowing what we want, why things are as they are, what to do, which way to go and we can place ourselves in a very negative space by obsessing or feeling guilt over not knowing.
Thinking that we should know, that everybody else seem to have a grand plan for their lives while we don’t even know what to have for dinner.
We want so much, wish and dream, we see it and we feel entitled to greatness, but we don’t know HOW we are going to get it, and we struggle because we think that we have to know everything about everything.
That is not true however.
Everyone of us has something that we enjoy to do. Each and every one of us. Frustration occurs when we think we are not good enough, when we think we don’t have the money to do it, we are too afraid, we think we are too old or not thin enough and the list goes on and on and on.
And we think we have to know they way before we can do that which gives us meaning and joy.
Instead, the way will be given to us, after we have decided what we want to do, what gifts and talents that we have that we want to express to the world. When we are committed to our souls journeying, that is when the way will be shown to us.
Take a pen and paper and sit down, by yourself, and simply ask yourself what you enjoy doing.
- What do I love to do?
- What interests me?
Write a list of what you enjoy doing. There is your clue. The clarity to why you are put on this earth at this time in your evolution. We are all here to share our talents, gifts and JOYS with the world.
- What are you good at?
- Is there something specific people come and ask you about that you have noticed? And do you enjoy sharing that?
So there is your clue to your life’s fulfillment.
We don’t have to know exactly what to do right away, just look for the essence and the rest will become clear in time.
If you like gardening, taking care of elders, walk dogs, paint, or whatever it might be, if it contributes positively to the world somehow and makes you happy, then that is what you should do with your life. Share that.
Think of how the world would be if we all enjoyed what we were doing. The things we don’t care much for, someone else loves, and vice versa, so we can never take something that is meant for someone else, because the things you have to give can’t be given by anyone else but you.
So the world is now waiting for you to bring forth those unique gifts that you have.
You might think that there are things in the world that you can’t imagine anybody to do, while they in fact are enjoying themselves. There are people in the world that can’t imagine doing the things I do too, while for me, it’s the best thing ever.
- So, what do you like to do?
Ask yourself what it is about it that you like.
How would your ideal day look like while you did what you enjoy?
When we sincerely start to ask ourselves what we truly want, the clarity will come.
Clues will be presented to us, we get sudden insights, and ideas will begin to flow to our awareness. People may begin to contact us for a particular service or question us about something that gets our attention.
We are getting clues all the time, but we don’t see them when we are blinded by frustration, hopelessness or when we think we have to know every little step of the fulfillment of a dream or goal to be able to even begin.
But the thing is that when we take that little step forward, doing that little thing, maybe in a very little way at first, we will open up the path for ourselves just by doing that.
And then, the world will open up for us in magical ways!
