4 AFFIRMATIONS AND SECRETS TO FINDING YOUR PASSION
Article by Reid Keera Hebert
Some people are very blessed in that they find a lot of things they are passionate about. For the rest of us, it doesn’t seem as easy. We can sometimes feel envious that others have passions that excite them and that fuel them – while we don’t know exactly what we want out of life.
Living life without exploring our passions can leave us feeling out of alignment with our true selves, it can hold us back from being the best version of ourselves.
Perhaps we have some reservations about doing what we’re passionate about. Are we embarrassed to try something? Do we think we aren’t good enough? Will others judge us? Finding our passion might require us to dive a bit deeper into the way we perceive ourselves and the world around us.
Here are a few easy ways to help you find your passion:
Spend time trying new and different things
Doing the same old thing will garner the same old result. Try spending time with new people, doing new activities. Ignore the fact that you aren’t “as good” as other people at any given interest. Ignore the idea that some people may judge you for doing something different. Start accepting the fact that you are deserving of finding your passion and take the plunge to try something new.
Remember your childhood interests
Many people who find their passions note how they loved doing something similar as a child. Think about what you enjoyed doing as a child, perhaps your passion is not the exact same thing but it very well could lead you in the right direction. What type of games did you play as a child? What were you most excited about? How did you spend your free time?
Consider your current interests
Which books or magazines do you read? Which movies do you enjoy? What do you love to talk about? Do you have any dreams or goals that feel impossible? What would your life look like if you had millions of dollars? If you could have any career regardless of the logistics (ignore wage, training, accessibility, etc.), what would you do?
Trust the universe to deliver
Ask and you will receive! Try some meditations, speak to your spirit guides, ask for signs, pay attention to your dreams. Practice gratitude in your daily life and recognize that even by reading this article you are getting yourself more in alignment with finding your true passion. Opening the door is the first step, now keep it open and allow the flow of the Universe to enter.
Try the following affirmations:
- Each day I am discovering my passions more and more
- I am seeking my passions and my passions are seeking me
- The Universe is always guiding me toward my passions
- I am open and receptive to finding my purpose
