Where Does Your Passion Lead You?

Where Does Your Passion Lead You?
by Alicia K. Hanlen

I ask you to take a moment, quiet your mind, and if you choose, participate in this introspective meditation.

Dear Spirit, the light that shines within, I speak from my heart to your precious essence in this sacred moment. As I go deep within, I pose these life-affirming questions, and listen for your infinite guidance.

Wherein does my passion lie? What is it that calls to me, allowing me to think, feel, and act in the direction of my vision? What ignites the fire inside of me on my spiritual path to move boldly in the direction of this passion?

As I allow those questions to resonate in my subconscious mind, I take a moment to allow for the many possibilities and opportunities that might provide an answer for my soul’s journey.

When I awaken in the morning, what would constitute my dream day? To sing, to dance, to paint, to write? To spend the entire day immersed in glorious, incredible nature? Perhaps to go out into the world in a specific way, as a social activist, in greater service to my community, or in a way which is in total support of my family and loved ones. Maybe to simply step into the day, knowing that I give it my full attention, to live life to its fullest, knowing that there are no obstacles, but rather, infinite possibilities.

And so I just feel the potential of these possibilities – to laugh, to love, to create, to share, to enjoy, and certainly to serve others in this wonderful life. I am still. I listen. I absorb the guidance freely and without judgment. Indeed, it feeds my being, and I am refreshed, reinvigorated, and alive in the moment. My heart is full, I am awash in gratitude with your love and support, dear sweet Spirit. And so, I acknowledge that these thoughts and intentions are activated in the here and now, as I declare, “And so it is”.
