Life is meant to be extraordinary! Some people seem to come by this extraordinary life naturally, born with the proverbial "silver spoon." But most of us struggle to figure out our place in the world and how to create the best version of ourselves to live a full and meaningful life.
In our search for the best life we can live, we are required to make a paradigm shift ~ a new way to envision what is possible. Following are three keys to unlocking the ordinary in order to expand into the greater you.
ALIGN WITH YOUR SOUL AND DISCOVER ITS PURPOSE.
Just as the acorn holds the potential for the great oak tree, so does your soul contain the seeds of an extraordinary life. The first step is to understand the sacredness of all things. I have learned that we really are spiritual beings and our soul knows exactly why we came here. The clues lie in your early experiences. What thrilled you as a child? What did you love when you were ten?
Discovering what your soul yearns to express requires:
Because we are born into forgetfulness, our soul gets buried under the conditioning of our family of origin, our culture, education, religion, society, and the like. Often we cling to the familiar just because we know what to expect. Letting go of the ordinary for something more requires jumping into the great abyss with total faith that when we enter the unknown, we will be divinely guided.
DARE TO BE WHO YOU CAME HERE TO BE!
DROP YOUR STORY
Who are you without your story? Can you live in the present moment without an attachment to your past experiences? Once you identify with the sacredness of life, you discover that everything is sacred without exclusion. Even the things we may judge as bad or undesirable become rich experiential lessons.
DARE TO FREE YOURSELF OF CONDITIONS
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THE EXPERTS.
Seek the teachings of those who are on the cutting edge of what interests you.
DARE TO GO DEEP, APPROACHING LIFE WITH THE INNOCENCE OF A CHILD
As you begin to incorporate these three key areas into your life experience, you will be creating new ways to grow. You will find yourself looking less and less outside of yourself for answers because you will learn that your own inner wisdom guides your life in every way.
DARE TO EXPERIENCE LIFE EXTRAORDINARILY IN ALL ITS GLORY.
