What I Want
I am trying to live a life filled with inspiration. I do not want to wake one day and realize that my life has passed me by.
I know that I can create the life I want. I am doing it. Right now. Today. Each time I make a decision to step outside my comfort zone, to ask for what I want, to DO things, I am actively choosing to live my life.
I am reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
This life is so amazing.
I talk about synchronicity.
I talk about the universe whispering in my ear.
Then suddenly here is this book.
I have had this book for several years. I have never opened it. Never read it. I did not know what it said. I had two friends read it a few years ago and tell me that I needed to read it. I bought it. I never read it.
Earlier this year I decided to start this blog as a way to share my journey, a way to try and inspire myself, and others, to really live. To start now, no matter where they are at in life. To really think about and decide what they want in life and then start taking steps toward it.
And then, suddenly, here is this book.
I do not know why, after all these years of this book sitting on my shelf unread, that I decided to open and read this book.
The universe? Synchronicity? Perhaps my change in outlook has drawn this book to me. I do not know.
What I do know is that The Secret supports me in my want to LIVE life. It tells me that I *can* have, be and do exactly what I want and that the universe will conspire to help me. This is so reminiscent of Paul Coelho and his fable The Alchemist…which if you have not read, I highly suggest it! (It was suggested to me and I am immensely grateful.)
The universe is speaking to me in so many ways. I am listening. I am attuned. I try to follow.
I suggested last week that we need to DECIDE what we want and then we have to go after it. After reading some of The Secret I was overcome with a desire to write down “The Things I Want”. I had an amazing moment of clarity where my mind was filled with the things that I really wanted. I had a compulsion to write them all down.
I needed to share them with the universe…these things that I wanted.
The top of my list? To be thin, fit and healthy. To have energy. There is much more, of course, and the specifics of what I want are not what is important here.
What is important is that I listened to the voices of the universe tell me to start this blog, to read this book, to live my life, to write down what I want.
To share my life with you.
This is not easy for me; it is scary putting myself and my innermost thoughts out into the blog world. I have no idea who reads this or what their thoughts are about what I write. I can only hope that by listening to my inner voice, the universe, my heart…that what I say and share will somehow touch and inspire others to start living life!!
So, the proof is in the pudding. I didn’t just ask you to decide what you wanted, to visualize it, to write it down, but I did so myself! I have spent the last several days visualizing what I want being real. I have read what I wrote down. I have felt the emotions that I will feel when these things happen.
I encourage you to take a moment today. Find a quiet spot. Clear your mind. Allow clarity to enter. Listen to your inner voice and the voices of the universe. Decide what you want. Be specific. Nothing is too big or too small. Ask for it. Write it down. Take steps to make it happen, and then watch as your life dreams are fulfilled.
I have seen it happen many times over in my life. Once I really decide, once I put it out there to the universe, things start to happen. It is beautiful and crazy and amazing. I put it out there that I want to live my life…and so I am.
Have you read The Secret? Do you believe in the power of the universe? Share with me.
