In self awareness, we strive to find the True Self, as we journey inward to discover our talents, gifts, and unique design that makes us who we are. This can be several months to several years or even a lifetime of exploration. The amount of time doesn’t matter. It’s more about taking the time to be in the silence, and listen to the Higher Self, to learn what our purpose and meaning in life is all about.
We hear of meditation and how beneficial it is to this self awareness journey. We find frustration, maybe even impatience as we anxiously try our best to find this ultimate state of mind we are so hungry for.
What if it were easier than we ever imagined? What if, we took a moment to stop trying so hard to do meditation and find a way to just allow meditation and stillness in the mind? In our efforts to find peace, we hold on to what is keeping us from the peace.
I want to take you on a journey, where we approach this idea from a different angle. A place where instead of trying to tackle meditation, we find an activity we are passionate about and a lifestyle we dream about. Maybe you imagine walks on the beach but never go to the beach and walk! Maybe it’s taking lessons in a craft you always wanted to learn.
What if you gave yourself permission to do these things? I believe that when we allow ourselves to enjoy and partake in our dreams, we are lighting the path to find the True Self. This is called Active Meditation and can bring you to a state of peace when you allow yourself to enjoy life.
In addition, it will open doors to opportunities you would have never thought of and bring you closer to finding your unique Self and Gifts. When people are happy and at peace, they are their True Self. They are connected to the very essence of why and how they exist!
Happy people are also very healthy, and they are proactive in finding ways to share their gifts with others. They understand what “goes around comes around.” They understand they are capable of creating a reality they want to live in, and release the one that doesn’t work for them. How wonderful to be self empowered!
The world is currently in a time of transition where it’s time to bring these gifts together in unity to enable a new world of peace to emerge. We can do this! We can do this together, by learning and allowing our unique gifts to shine through us to others, we have made this world a better place.
It’s as easy as “letting go” and allowing yourself to be YOU!
