At this time of year known for fireworks and celebration, I am bringing you a topic about connecting in and activating your Inner Spark. In other words, here’s an opportunity to connect to YOUR inner fireworks.
At Create Your Life! one thing we provide our clients with is a Recommended Resource List to create their very own top-notch Dream Realization Library. One book on this list is Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain. The following is from page 168:
Discovering Our Higher Purpose by Shakti Gawain
“We all have a great deal to offer the world and to each other, each in our own special and unique way. To a great degree, our own personal sense of well-being is a function of how much we are expressing and living this.
We each have a significant contribution to make in this lifetime. It may be many or single or complex or simple. And this contribution is our higher purpose. It always involves being yourself totally, completely, and naturally, and doing something or many things that you genuinely love to do, and that you have a natural gift for.
We all know in our hearts what our higher purpose is, but we often do not consciously acknowledge it, even to ourselves. In fact, most people seem to go to great lengths to hide it from themselves and from the world. They fear and seek to avoid the power, responsibility, and light that comes with acknowledging and expressing their true purpose in life.”
Here’s what comes up for me after reading that quote from Shakti Gawain:
- Who am I and how can I best share who I am with the world?
- What are the very best gifts that I have to offer others?
- What shifts can I make to be in fuller expression and uplevel from here?
Pretty GRANDE questions, si? (My Spanish is coming along nicely, no?)
You might be thinking…”Ya, Tara, I have the same questions … so where do I start? I feel like I have no clue what my gifts are.”
Truth is, this is a perfect place to start.
To support you with shining a light on what will ignite YOUR inner spark, consider the following 4 fabulous questions (courtesy of author and astologer, Rob Brezsny). These powerful questions will help you dive deeper and clarify what you are here to create and offer, so that you naturally and easily ignite that inner light and shine more brightly and boldly.
1. What is it I want more than anything else?
Really dig deep here to get to the heart of the matter. This is not so much about the new house or the new car or the better job, or getting out of a current job. But, rather, what is it that you want in your life more than anything else?
2. What are the very best gifts I have to offer others?
We don’t shine bright just for ourselves. When you connect into the very best gifts that you have to offer to others, that’s when your inner spark grows brighter and the level of joy and purpose in your life expands!
3. What paths will allow me to learn the most about love – how to BE LOVE?
This is not about romantic love. It’s about BEING LOVE. What’s the path that is going to ultimately support you in being love?
4. What needs to change in order to get what I want and carry out my best of self and mission? What am I still holding onto?
What influences and attitudes do you need to eliminate? What needs to go? What is not aligned with your future self? What behaviors or attitudes are not aligned with being who you are meant to be…shining bright…being brave…being seen for all what is unique about you?
Imagine knowing what your very best gifts are, and actively BEING LOVE and offering these gifts and services to others. Imagine living in a world where more and more people are experiencing astounding levels of joy and ease and love every day all because they have connected with what their purpose is on this earth.
And, imagine YOU being an integral part of this movement!
This is not about getting it perfect. This is about being willing to engage in the process and set the intention of connecting in a deeper way to who you are and what is unique and special about YOU so that you can connect those skills, talents and gifts to what you are here on this planet to do. We are all here for a purpose.
Let’s leave the drama behind. Let’s focus instead on who you are becoming and, frankly, who you have always been …who you were born to be.
Seeing you shining bright!
