Always Follow Your Bliss Affirmation

Today’s Affirmation:

I always follow my bliss!

joseph_campbell_4The late mythologist Joseph Campbell coined this phrase to describe his vision of what our life here on this planet is all about.

He wrote, “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

He presented it as a kind of simplified mission statement designed to awaken us to to remember our potential and pursue it.

Most of you had dreams at one point in your life. There was a career you dreamed of or a passion that we really wanted to pursue. At some point, you lost touch with that dream. “Reality” intervened. You started a family, you began a career, and your life became so busy that your dream began to fade away.

The more time that went by, the more unrealistic your dream appeared. You had “responsibilities” and your dream seemed a little selfish in the face of them.

Maybe the time has now come to “follow your bliss!” Maybe your life has cleared a bit and there is time to revisit your priorities, or perhaps life on the cubicle farm has become so painful that you are ready to make a change.

This article, When Offbeat Dreams Become Careers, appeared on the Yahoo! front page back in 2007. It is about people just like you who decided to follow their bliss.

You can do it just like they did! If you can’t drop everything and pursue your dream right this minute, OK. But there is nothing to stop you from reacquainting yourself with it or taking a few positive steps in preparation today. Take one step towards your bliss today and another step tomorrow. Each day you will be a bit closer to chasing your dream.

In the meantime, you might also find your days more enjoyable and fulfilling knowing that you are taking positive steps towards achieving your dream.

Find your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Are You Aligned with Your True Power?

Today’s Affirmation:

Today and every day, life happens THROUGH me not TO me!

Sitting on breakawayAre you aligned with your true power? Many people believe that life and the world happen TO them. This is a very common and a very disempowering belief. To believe that you are acted upon by forces absolutely beyond your control, leaves you with no recourse but submission. Over time, you feel frustrated and increasingly helpless. You come to believe in luck more than action as force that governs good fortune in life.

Today’s affirmation is message to you. Hear it loud and clear. Some of your minds will immediately begin looking for the reasons why it isn’t true. I would encourage you look for the reasons why it is. What’s at stake? Nothing less than your ability to direct your life and achieve your dreams. Pretty big stakes to leave to fate.
