I watched a video this morning about a 5 yr. old child who wanted people to stop killing animals. Unfortunately the video is no longer available. In it he kept telling his mom that he wanted to do his job and he couldn’t wait until he was an adult to do it. He was so emotional and passionate about being able to do his job. He didn’t want people killing animals to eat any more. He felt in his heart that it was bad and the wrong thing to do. His passion and words brought out in me the realization that we all have our purpose with us all along.
We all come into this world with a job to do! This little one says it as clear as day. He just wants to be an adult so that he can do his job. He said it over and over again. The more I know about the Universal Laws and the Mind the more I know it to be true. I also love the way his mom responds, what can you do now? I give her a standing ovation for how she empowers her child.
When we come into the world we are implanted with a dream, a desire. This is what we are here on the earth to pursue. For some it may be the talent of dance or song. For others it may be mechanical, a teacher, a nurse, an animal lover or an artist. Whatever your dream is, or whatever you desire, these both point to your purpose. Think back to when you were a child. What was something that evoked an intense emotion in you? What was it that you used to dream about as a child? These things can lead you to your life purpose. There is a great saying that points to this.
“Be aware of the place that you are bought to tears. That is where I AM and that is where your TREASURE is.”
If you have a hard time understanding this, I’ll do my best to explain. It means that your gift to the world can be found hidden deep inside you. It may be locked away waiting to be uncovered. You can be sure that it has been with you all along. Unfortunately due to circumstances or the way society is built we are not taught this. More often than not we are told that we can’t do something, that our ideas are impossible or even crazy. Over time we forget about them or give up.
The surest way to uncover your gift is to be aware of the things or experiences that touch your heart on such a deep level that you are brought to tears, in a good way or a hurtful way such as the case of this little man. Other people may look at this situation and will not have any emotional response at all. Please note that I am speaking to the situation that he is upset about not the fact that he is upset. I think most people with any empathy at all will be touched by his reaction.
Another way to uncover your gift to is to notice what pisses you off. That’s right! What are the things that piss you off? Things that make your blood boil. Now I am not talking about getting mad at someone because of what they did to you. I am talking about the anger that comes up when you are confronted with an issue outside of yourself. In the case of this little man he was not only brought to tears, but was extremely angry. He could not justify what was happening and would fight till the end to stop it. Others may get upset but will not feel the urge to do something about it. For him it is a pull! He can’t help himself. He can’t wait to be an adult so that he can do his job. When his Mom suggests that he doesn’t have to wait his expression changes and the wheels start turning. You can see it in his face.
I hope I have explained this so that you are beginning to understand. Your gift that you need to bring to the world is inside you. It’s been there all along. The key is to find out where it is hiding and unlock the door. Realize you are a treasure and have that one gift that humanity is waiting on.
If you would like some help to uncover your true gift to the world please message me. I know you don’t want to go another year feeling like you are not living up to your potential. You are a gift to the world, let it be known!
Forget Resolutions! I choose a word instead. One that I will become in the coming year, FEARLESS! Inspired by the “The Giving Keys” Jewelry.
In the last days of 2015 as I reflected on the year and how far I have come, I realized that I still had many things that scared me. Oh, I know we always will, but for me I felt very disappointed in myself that I didn’t face them. I overcame many things and accomplished many things but I still feel as if there is so much more to explore, experience and so much more of myself that I need to allow others to see. Parts of myself that I keep hidden due to fear or thinking small. Fear of being vulnerable, fear that others will not approve, that others will not like what I have to say or what I stand for. Fear of loving so much that it hurts! Fear of jumping into what, I feel is my purpose, with all that I am and not having enough money to sustain myself. Fear of messing up someone else life. Fear of not be able to give enough. Fear that I am not articulate enough or smart enough. These are some of the things I think and worry about. Most I know aren’t true but oh how we are programmed to believe such things.
FEARLESS signifies to me facing the things, places, experiences and emotions that scare me. Things that I may shy away from, avoid altogether, or push away from me in many different ways. Today I vow to myself and to all I come in contact with that I will love openly, give freely, but most importantly step outside my own comfort zone and do what it takes to move forward fearlessly, triumphantly, and with compassion and love for myself and others.
What word will you choose and what will it signify for you? If you want to take it a step further and make it real for yourself, tell me what the word is and why in the comments below. It is only in putting it out there in the Universe that we can actually see it return to us. Next year I will have a different word altogether as FEARLESS will be part of my makeup.
I know this is not the usual post from me but it’s about LOVE nonetheless, and the world needs more of it!
This was initially written about a video I saw about a little boy waiting for his Daddy to come and pick him up, but daddy never comes. It hit me so hard. I have written and rewritten this blog about 10 times. I just can’t seem to put into words the emotion it evokes for me. I could feel the pain of not only his feelings but of that of all the children that stand waiting for a parent to come back. The initial leaving is always difficult, but it is the repetitive leaving and broken promises that break my heart and the hearts of those waiting.
Age does not matter for the heart does not know what age is. These hearts cannot comprehend that someone they love would promise them to show up and then they never do. Have you ever seen the face of a child who has been disappointed by a parent? There is nothing more heartbreaking.
This is a call to all Parents to be there for their children! Do whatever you have to, but be there! All they want is your presence! That means put down the cell phone, shut off the TV, look them in the eye and ask how they are doing? I am sure we could all do a better job with this. I vow to my girls to look them in the eye more and to just Be!
Tonight when I returned home I heard that old familiar sound, a cat fight outside my window. My first thought was did my cat get out, but I knew that was not the case. Nova, my cat and I peered out the window to see what the entire ruckus was about. We could hear what seemed to be just one cat, but could not see her in the shadows. Again we heard her scream out and heard the rustle of the bushes. There she is, stepping into the light, just feet from where we were. Within moments all was calm and she just walked away.
As the night went on, I retreated further into my mind. Thinking about the cat fight and why animals fight. The cat outside my window was fighting because she was scared. Something threatened her well being or safety, so she reacted.
I can remember the days when I would react this way in relationships. Whenever I felt scared, scared that they were going to go away, scared that they did not love me anymore (that I was not lovable) scared that I would be left alone (an unbearable thought), I would fight. How did I fight? Sometimes I would come out arms waving, stay away stay back! I am too scared to let you love me. Sometimes I would attract an army of others around me so that I became untouchable. Other times I would just be too nice, too giving and at others ambivalent. This is how I fought love because love threatened my well-being, my sense of self so I fought it every step of the way. If you loved me I would give you reasons not too. If you didn’t I would give you reason too. I was like a cat in the night.
When I did happen to let you in and fall in love, I did not land on my feet! I was like a stray cat hanging around. Sometimes I cuddled up next to you and at others I batted you away. Sometimes I would sit on your lap until you payed attention to me. Screaming inside look at me, don’t you see me! Other times a scratch was all you would get! I was that cat in the night, afraid!
I fought because I was scared to love and be loved. I fought because I did not know how,but mostly I fought because I was afraid I would disappear in you and no one would notice, not even me!
So tonight I come across this as I was looking for experiments on the Science of Attraction and thought to myself, this is something I know a little bit about.
As part of my coach training, this was how we actually opened one of our training weekends. Some were very uncomfortable with it and had a hard time holding the gaze, some laughed, others cried, we all were moved by it.
My experience with eye contact has been quite profound over the last year. I had always thought that I had no problem making eye contact and did it regularly or so I thought. What I didn’t do was make prolonged eye contact, a few seconds was all I was actually doing before I would glance away only to come back again. What a difference it made to have prolonged eye contact with anyone. The emotions that would rise up, some of sadness, fear, happiness, sometimes pure joy, but always love! When I took the time to really look deep into someones eyes I could see and feel their very soul. The core of who they were. It was then that I realized how much I was missing, and how much I was hiding. How much I avoided eye contact with people, especially the ones I felt connected to. I was so afraid of being seen and knew that if I let them look long enough they would see me.
I have since started taking the time savoring the moments when someone allows me to see deep into their eyes. I appreciate the courage and vulnerability it takes to do so. How are you sharing yourself? Are you able to hold a gaze? Are you able to let someone in?
Eye Contact with Strangers Experiment
Where has the human connection gone in our big cities? In this public experiment we discover what happens when we intentionally share eye contact with strangers…We had no idea how quickly things would escalate!Join the movement here http://bit.ly/1Gjm9emSupport the movement here —> goo.gl/Zx5RsL <—-Behind the scenes info about this experiment here http://bit.ly/1H6EkKXVideo Recording: Jimmy James Bee & Ocean TrimboliEditing: The Liberators InternationalMusic: Eyes Wide Open – Tony Anderson #Eyecontact, #TheLiberators, #Freedom, #public, #perth, #humanconnection
