YOUR STORY HAS A VOICE

 

Who you are is unique.

There has never been another you.

Never will be again.

Exactly as you are, right now, reading this.

Your eyes, your hair, your skin, your mind.

Your experiences and memories,

One of no kind.

Special.

 

How many times have we heard this story about our life’s purpose ? Whether from the mouth of a loved one, or the pages of a self-help book, our western mythologies are based on novelty and individuation. On finding purpose, meaning and legacy. We are encouraged, beseeched to become ourselves, the call rooted in a hero’s narrative of personal adventure.

 

THEN WHY IS IT THAT WE DON’T BELIEVE IT, DON’T ACT ?

 

Why is it that we spend hours a day engaged in the mental torture of self-criticism and sabotage? Why is it, that we sacrifice our dreams and give away our personal power time and again? Why is it we consistently choose to sacrifice our dreams ?

Perhaps, because we have forgotten how to listen.

 

THE UNIQUE STORY THAT YOU WERE BORN TO LIVE HAS A VOICE

 

It calls to you in moments of high emotion. It whispers when you lie awake at night, wondering why you aren’t living the life you long for. It hides behind your daydreams and speaks to you in times of ‘synchronicity’ and ‘coincidence’.

 

You just need to listen.

Listen and pay attention.

Listen and act from it’s voice.

Your voice.

Your wisdom.

Your story.

 

IF YOU DON’T PLAY YOUR MUSIC THEN WHO ELSE WILL?

 

Each day is a precious opportunity to live well.

To live life with purpose and power.

To be a creator instead of a victim.

To listen to the voice of your story that calls you ever forwards into new adventures and new territory.

Each day we have a choice to reconnect. To remember who we are and what we wish to create with our precious lifetime.

 

WILL YOU LISTEN?

  7. It’s powerfully soft
  8. It fuels our healing
  9. It comes immediately after revelation & understanding
  10. It is the forerunner to grace
  11. It is another word for love
  “Most of us know from experience that gratitude is an energy that fuels our sense of health, well-being and freedom but how often do we use it to communicate directly with the universe? If our thoughts and feelings eventually become the experiences and physical reality of our lives (which I believe is true), then the emotions we feel act as powerful channels of communication to the energy and essence of the world around us. The more often we become conscious and deliberate in our use of this powerful emotional energy, the faster we become co-creators of our authentic story.”
