Who Am I To Do This?

Do you really think you were created and instilled with a passion and a gift not to share it? Just because someone else is expressing a similar message or doing the same work you do (even if they are really good at it) doesn’t mean there is not a place for your gifts. Stop comparing!

A commitment to love

I recently got married!

(insert celebratory cheers here)

There was a way where I thought having a wedding would be sort of a moot point considering we’ve been together almost 8 years and living together the majority of that time. Basically, I already considered us married. 

Yet there was something so amazing about coming together with our friends and family from all over the country in a celebration of love. Having that much energy and focus on love really inspired my wife and I to show up in a greater way. 

What if we all could live everyday with as much Love, Joy, Beauty and commitment to our greatness as we do on a wedding day? 

That’s the world I want to live in.

Here’s a start... Below is an adaptation of my wedding vows written in the first person. How about starting each day with this commitment to Love for ourselves. 

My commitment is to know the Truth of who I am and only see my Divine Perfection. To energize only words and thoughts of Love, Joy and Beauty about myself. To know whatever is occurring in my life that Love is behind it all. Everything is either an expression of Love or a call for Love so I intend to let Love be the guiding force in my life.

And so it is! Let love rule!   

Uncovering Your Heart's Desires

What is the deep desire of your heart? For me it’s to love and be loved. To know myself as God knows me. To give of my gifts and talents in this world and be of service. To experience Peace, Joy, Creativity and Freedom.
 
We all have heart’s desires or yearnings from our soul to express uniquely in this world. It may be a specific desire to create something or make an impact or contribution in this world, or to experience Freedom or Joy. We are all implanted with unique desires which are indicators of our own unique purpose, passion or as I say, our soul’s gurgle. Our desires are a natural urge of Spirit seeking to express Itself more fully though each of us individually. What I mean by soul gurgle, is the idea of your soul gurgling out into expression. I know is that each of us has a unique gift, a unique passion, a unique talent that is ours to give the world. And our desires help us uncover that unique passion. So it is important to first awaken to our heart’s desires and honor and acknowledge them by believing in them and taking action, Trusting Spirit knowing that we will be successful. It’s important to not just discounting a desire of the heart or think, "oh but I could never…"  "I’m not good enough to…" or "who am I to do that?"  "I don’t deserve that…" etc... These are all ways we play small.  Instead we must awaken to who we really are- a Divine Expression of the One, full of infinite possibilities, joy and creativity. Therefore, who are we not to express ourselves fully and live our heart’s desires?
 
I encourage you to take 5 minutes right now and write over and over again “My heart’s desire is…My heart’s desire is…” allowing your higher self to answer that question and to truly get in touch with your heart’s desire.  Then ask for guidance and write out a few inspired action steps to take in the direction of living your heart’s desires! This can be a daily or weekly practice. Try it and see if you like it!
