Last month, the angels talked about living your life with integrity. In continuation of that theme, and in honour of Valentine’s Day, the angels drew the Passion card this month. Their message to you? Find your passion and then let it infuse your life with limitless energy and joy. So, how does one go about finding that passion?
Listening to Your Heart Song
The answer lies within your heart. In order to figure out what makes your heart sing, reflect on the following questions:
* If you didn’t need the money, what job would you do just for the fun of it?
* If education and opportunity were no object, what would you do with your life?
* If other restrictions such as health or self-esteem issues were not standing in your way, what career path would you follow?
* What are your favourite hobbies?
* When you were a child, what or who did you want to be when you grew up?
* Who are your role models, and why?
It is important to be completely honest with yourself. Finding your passion doesn’t mean conforming to someone else’s ideals. It means living the life that is 100% authentically yours. It means honouring your soul’s purpose on Earth. No one else knows exactly why you are here but you. Ask your Higher Self to tap into the timeless wisdom of the Divine.
If you find you are struggling with this exercise, chances are your ego is blocking communication with your soul. In order to over come egoistic influences you must first learn to identify the hallmarks of ego interference:
* Do you feel as though you’re hiding something from yourself?
* Do you hear a judgmental voice inside your head?
* Do you feel discomfort or embarrassment whenever you try to communicate with your Higher Self?
* Do you feel tired and unable to concentrate whenever you connect with Spirit?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in the clutches of ego. Ask your angels to turn up the volume on their communication with you. This ensures that you will be able to communicate with them despite whatever your ego may say or do.
Embracing All Aspects of Your Being
Once you start receiving messages from your spirit, it is important not to censor them. No matter how off-beat or implausible your ideas may seem, it is vitally important that you do not judge them. Your childhood ambitions may seem ridiculous now, but do not scoff at them. Honour your soul by taking everything seriously. For example, when I was young, I had an exceptionally odd career plan in mind. Whenever people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would surprise them by replying earnestly, “A mermaid”. I could not understand their bemusement. But no matter how silly this notion of being a mermaid seemed, it contained a strong clue as to my soul’s purpose. Mermaids are actually angels of the sea. Had I realized that as a child, I might have known then that my constant companions were angels, and that someday I would work with them, helping people lead happier, more fulfilling lives.
Your soul will communicate with you, providing you are open to receiving its messages. The more you trust your intuition, the stronger it will become. Listen to the song of your heart and you will feel the stirrings of great passion within. Then do yourself a huge favour by actually taking steps to fulfill your soul’s purpose. Once you discover your true purpose, and you make it the focus of your life, you will never work another day in your life, because your passion for your life’s purpose will make your job feel more like play than work. Now doesn’t that sound appealing?
