The only way to get what you really want, is to know what you really want.
And the only way to know what you really want, is to know yourself.
And the only way to know yourself, is to be yourself.
And the only way to be yourself, is to listen to your heart.
I do, The Universe
I subscribe to this daily email service call “Notes from the Universe” and admittedly, the website is a little hokey, but the message is so very clear. I am always amazed at how perfect the timing is for the strangely profound messages…..they always come just when needed….
In my usual process of self analysis, I often have to pause for a moment and remove myself from my current situation in order to gain the clarity I need to make choices that move me in the direction of finding and receiving what I truly want. Sometimes, these choices aren’t so much choices made even by myself, but choices made by others…..but the universe has a powerful way of ejecting things out of our lives that can hold us back from what we want.
I truly believe that we always know what is good a right for us and what moves us in the direction of our desires…but often we don’t listen to what our gut is telling us and we make choices that aren’t in line with what we need. Finding clarity is often the pathway to remove the obstacles that stand in front of what we truly desire and want….In listening to our heart, we are always able to be ourselves, and in knowing ourselves, we are able to truly define what we really want, and once we know what we want, we can finally have the capacity and the ability to receive it!
When all is said and done, there is nothing more empowering and beautiful than knowing what you want and actually going for it!…without reservation or shame…..it is the only way to living the life of your dreams and staying true to your heart. Get clear, listen to your heart and follow your dream!
