Dig deep. The answers are within you.
I don’t think there is anyone walking this planet who is not wanting to know the answers to the most fundamental questions:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
What am I supposed to be doing?
And yet, it seems we all begin our search for these answers by going outside ourselves. We let the outside world answer these questions for us, when they simply don’t know – they’re guessing. The irony in our quest is that we came to this planet, to our life, already knowing the answers to our questions. We’ve simply forgotten and our job is to remember.
I can imagine this might sound a little ‘woowoo’ or ‘airy fairy’ and hey, I’m not trying to convince you of anything that doesn’t resonate with you. I just know, having worked my ass off for the first 25 years of my life, doing everything ‘right’ (top marks in school, top athlete, unconditional acceptance to university, great corporate job) that I was miserable, depressed, angry, frustrated and fed up. And I was still searching for the answers to these basic questions.
And let me tell you, I was SO resistant to this idea of inner work in the beginning. But at some point my pain outgrew my pride. I woke up to the realization that what I was doing wasn’t working anyway, so it probably wouldn’t hurt to try a new approach. And so I started to dig in, to jog my memory.
What I learned was that I was exactly who I was supposed to be. And furthermore that I was enough, just as I was.
And the same is true for you.
You don’t need one more course, or to read one more book, or talk to one more person or redo your resume one more time.
You need time with you. Time in quiet reflection. Time in nature. Time in silence.
You need to go back to the essence of who you are, who you came here to be, so that you can move forward in your life as the REAL you.
I know this process can feel like a struggle. And at times you’ll want to scream “just give me the answer, tell me what to do”, but I promise you, if you work in the same diligent, committed manor that you do every other area of your life – the answers will come. Try not to second guess them. And don’t be fooled by their simplicity. You are not going to have a million dollar idea. You are going to remember the essence of your true self. You are going to re-align yourself with your heart’s true desires. You are going to connect with your soul’s purpose.
Write down the answers you receive. Write down the guidance that comes to you. Catch that fleeting thought that just skipped across your mind and write that down too.
If you need any help, just let me know. Write me a note, leave a comment or give me a call.
Enjoy the process,
