Follow Your Bliss



It's been said time and time again but that's because we as people get sidetracked so easily that we constantly need the reminder for it. I had a very in depth conversation with my house mate Vicki last night, as we do, and it was all about following your bliss vs. doing what you think is "right." You see I've been in this limbo state where I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with myself. I felt like I was a bit lost with no direction. I'm sure many of you can relate to this because most people still have no clue what they want to do when they "grow up." Well I have always known what I wanted to do when I grow up, I've always wanted to be a singer/songwriter and performer. I use to think it was because I wanted to be famous and have lots of money, which isn't a bad thing, but I've grown to realize what I really want is the power to help change and mould the world into a better place and celebrity power can deliver that. In my small way I want to be able to tell people it's ok to be themselves, to live the lives they want to live and to pass on the teachings that I have learnt myself over the course of my own life.


I've been toying with the idea of moving to South Korea to teach English for the past week or so. Even though it would bring me great amounts of joy and satisfy my need for travel I just wasn't feeling that "I have to do this or I will die" feeling that I usually do when I'm passionate about something. When I was talking to Vicki I was going back and fourth about this new idea and my life long desire of making music. Vicki hands down said to "follow your bliss" because I'm one of the lucky people who actually knows what they want to do with their life. I've also been reading "Ask and It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks and it's been helping me really feel what it is I need to feel to allow the amazing things I want to manifest into my life. So last night during my meditation I went in really looking for that thing that would ignite the same amount of passion in me as I had when I moved to Europe, the "if I don't do this I will die" feeling and the only thing that came up was music. I have no idea how it's going to manifest or what it's going to look like but I need to stick to my guns and make music happen in my life. I now know that I will never be 100% happy in my life unless I accomplish this dream. So follow your bliss, even if you have no idea how it's going to happen. If it doesn't scare you, then you don't want it bad enough. If you want it bad enough, then you will find a way to make it happen. In the mean time, just be happy and enjoy the ride knowing that the Universe is working to bring you your desires.

With Gratitude,
Calan
