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.

WHAT You Seek is WHAT You Find

After-work meditationEveryone is familiar with the principle, as described in the Bible – “Seek and you will find”. This is a foundational element of applying the mind to resolving the chaotic world around us. It’s a very simple idea that seeking leads to finding.

However, there is a principle that takes that idea a step further. It is the advanced understanding that WHAT you seek is WHAT you find.

Our minds are finely tuned instruments designed to take the unmanifest chaos around us and transform it into intelligible, usable information that becomes things. Our mind registers all kinds of information all day long of which we are not consciously aware. But when we focus our mind on finding a solution to a problem, remembering something, or noticing things in our experience, we soon find those answers and things coming into our experience.

Here is a real world example. Have you ever purchased a car and suddenly noticed how many of that car are on the road? Those Ford Escapes were always there simply as part of the chaos of unresolved information because you didn’t need to know it. Now purchase a Ford Escape and suddenly you see them all over the place. You have given your mind a WHAT to seek and that is soon WHAT you begin to find in your experience.

The same idea works for goals or finding a way to achieve your dreams. Give your mind a WHAT (especially a big enough WHAT with a strong WHY) to focus on and all the HOWs that you never noticed before suddenly appear, as if by magic. They were always there. You simply hadn’t instructed your mind WHAT to seek and so it did not know WHAT to find.

This principle is simple to put into practice. Simply plant an idea, a thing, an experience into your consciousness through repetition (like an affirmation) and soon you will begin to see it coming into your experience. It’s a very intriguing detail of how our minds and our Universe work.

Examples:

Today I am noticing how kind people are to me.
Today I am finding new ways to create wealth in my life.

Create a statement like this, plant it firmly into your consciousness, and watch what happens.

“The Vision Thing”

Today’s Affirmation:

I am a visionary. I see things well ahead of the pack!”

“The vision thing” was a phrase that became popular in political circles in 1987. During an interview with Time Magazine, Vice-president George H.W. Bush answered questions about his inability to clearly articulate his policy positions with a frustrated, “Oh, that vision thing.”

Having a vision is important. It’s important in clarifying our goals and in attracting the help other people in achieving them. People gravitate to people of vision, largely because many of us go through life without one.

Do you have one?

President John F. Kennedy was someone who, in his best moments, could lay out a vision like few other leaders in our history. In 1962, he gave a speech at Rice University (excerpt below) in which he committed The United States to landing a man on the moon before 1960s were over. When he laid out this vision, much of the needed science was more science fiction than science. Yet, Kennedy’s vision and powerful articulation of it galvanized a nation and the kept the vision on track even after his untimely assassination.

What is your vision? It doesn’t have to be as grandiose as going to the moon. It can be as modest or as grand as you wish. Just have one and be ready and able to articulate it when the winds of opportunity come knocking.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Roadblocks are Shortcuts to Something Better

Today’s Affirmation:
“Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.”

Today’s affirmation is a testament to our ability, indeed, our necessity to turn life’s obstacles into opportunities. There’s an old saying that life is what happens to us on the way to our dreams. We think we are so smart and we have it all figured out and yet life, inevitably, throws us for a loop.

We have a choice. We can sit and pout because things didn’t turn out as we’d scripted them. Or, we can push forward with renewed determination.

Sometimes – as much as we hate to admit it – the universe’s wisdom or God’s is sounder than our own. The very thing that messed up our perfected plans turns out to be the key that unlocks a brand new future.

However, we can’t find that key as long as we view the detour as a curse rather than as the blessing that it truly is. When you see these crazy, unrelated things working to achieve exactly what you’ve been asking for, relax and let the universe work its magic.

May your day be filled with roadblocks ready to transform into shortcuts to your success and happiness.

Follow your bliss! Experience your bliss! Become your bliss!
