I feel happy, excited, motivated, and content now that I am doing the work I love for myself. I know this is true because I look forward to work each day and am able to attract new clients that I can help achieve success and besides myself the other people that benefit are my husband, friends and family because I am less stressed and more myself helping to make a difference in people's lives here and all over the world. This or something better!
A few years ago I was feeling really stuck in the work I was doing and for fun took some online webinars to create focus around my career goals, and more specifically teaching yoga. I came across some really great sites. For one, I love the Abundant Yogi. That Kris Ward has got it going on! I learned a lot from her three part webinar series about creating the lifestyle I wanted as well as what it meant to be a conscious entrepreneur.
At some point in my Googling, I came across the Stuckdom to Freedom webinar offered by Amazing Journey Coaching. It doesn't appear to be available at the moment, but it was this course that helped me develop the above statement. After working through some of my limiting beliefs, I discovered that what I really wanted was already available to me. I just had to believe it in order for it to be true.
And of course, I had to be patient.
It dawned on me the other day, that although my personal desire statement was drafted nearly two years ago, it is almost all happening RIGHT NOW. And if it isn't currently happening, it's about too!
Over the past few weeks, I started to feel like I needed a change. This is something that comes up a lot for me, but over the years I've learned to work with it, rather than to leap with it. Last week I got the idea that I should branch out beyond offering only yoga classes. At first, and because of all my recent diet changes, I thought this meant I should become a Holistic Health Coach and I almost considered giving up my space in the 500-hour Life of Yogi Teacher Training I'm doing this Fall with Dharma Mittra. Although it seems crazy now, I almost let go of something (my next teacher training) that I know is part of my path and have been seeking for a long time. My mind was almost made up, but to be sure I sat in my meditation and asked the Universe "what should I do?"
The next day I traveled to NYC to celebrate Dharma Mittra's 74th birthday. I had the greatest pleasure meeting and making some new yoga friends that day. Excited about the new wind in my career path, I decided to bring up the health coaching certification. It was really on my mind! I'm so glad I did, because after some discussion, I decided that for the time being, it wasn't right for me. At that moment, I wasn't sure what was right for me, but at least I knew that I needed to stay the course with my 500-hour training. Leave it to these beautiful, wonderful and compassionately honest yogis to show me that this was not the path for me. That night in Psychic Development class I focused my attention on creating a thriving business and felt much more content after doing so. I knew I was in the right place.
This got me thinking back to all the manifestation and lifestyle design work I did a few years ago. I pulled out this personal desire statement and realized that voila...it was already happening! I already know what it is I need to be doing and I have the tools all lined up waiting to be used. When it comes to manifesting our personal desires, patience is priceless! I don't need to search for a new career path or certification, but instead, I need to focus on what I have already begun. I need to stay the course.
Having clarification surrounding my work has re-energized me. Sure, there's a lot to be done and to be honest, it's quite scary. I'm not the best at putting myself out there. But that's okay, it's all a part of process. You know what's not okay? Letting my fear keep me away from my deepest desires and taking me far, far, far off course.
So this summer I'm putting my thinking cap on and getting creative about the work I'm offering and I'd love for you to come along for the ride! It's time to revamp and revitalize this ship. Are you in?
