Have you ever stopped to ask yourself, Is this the life I want to live? Am I happy? Am I living true to my Soul?
I was raised with the belief that if you want to get anywhere in life, you have to work hard. If you didn’t work hard, you didn’t earn it. For many years, that is what I did. I strived hard in my jobs to be promoted so I could be what I thought was “successful”. I didn’t believe anything else was even possible.
Then I was introduced to the work of Abraham, channeled by Ester Hicks. It showed me the possibility of creating whatever reality I wanted for myself. All I had to do was to desire it and to feel good. For once in my life I finally posed the question to myself and asked, “What do I really want? What do I want my life to look like? When I got quiet and took stock of my life it was clear to me that the life I was living was not the life I wanted. My life was an expression of the beliefs of my tribe - my family - thought it should be. I was working hard for a company that possibly had a future somewhere down the road. The company I worked for constantly stressed me, and it wasn’t even mine. I took my stress and frustration home with me everyday.
I really believed that this was the life I was going to live. Even though I had resigned to the limited life I created, I knew deep down that it wasn’t the life I wanted for myself. When I was honest with myself about the things that were in my life that I didn’t want, I was able to begin to see what it was that I did want. I wanted freedom. I wanted to make money that went to my family. I wanted to make my own hours. I wanted to spend more quality time with my wife. I wanted whatever I did to help others.
Now that I was focused on what I wanted, I sent those desires out to the Universe. Doing as Abraham suggested, I decided to do the only thing I was responsible for to make change in my life, and that was to feel good and find the joy. I trusted that the Universe would take care of the “how’s”. All I had to do was appreciate everything I could in my life and feel good as much as possible.
Now let me first say that in the beginning of the creation process I thought I had to have it all figured out. I calculated exactly how much I needed to make to cover all my bills. I wrote all the details down including what I thought my life was supposed to look like. I was holding on tight to my ideas, which didn’t leave much room for the Universe/Source Energy to do Its thing. This of course wasn’t working. Nothing was shifting because I was limiting the Universe.
When I was able to let go of the details of how the Universe would fulfill my desires, the energy began to shift. Ideas and connections came to me that I had never thought of before. Then an amazing new job opportunity presented itself! It met all my requirements and freed me to quit my current limiting job! I was ecstatic to learn that the new job would require me to work fewer hours per day than I had been working, but still pay me more than I was earning after 7 years of service at my old job! And the best part was yet to come! Two weeks into the new job, my client had “life” happen and needed to go back East to stay with family for a while. I was paid my entire year salary! I worked for two weeks and then the Universe delivered to me all I was I had asked for. In fact it gave me more than I could’ve ever imagined. I had always wanted to work for myself, and now, with this new amazing circumstance of being released from my job but paid a full year’s salary I had the time and the resources to build my own business and work for myself! This amazing circumstance also lead me to find what I truly enjoyed doing.
All my life I wanted to help others in some way. In my new freedom I was given the clarity to take my love of organizing, my project management skills and my training in energy healing to create De-Cluttering Spaces: a comprehensive, de-cluttering service unlike any other.
Now, when I ask myself, “Am I living the life of my dreams? Am I happy? Am I living true to my soul?” The answer is a resounding “Yes!”
