What is it that you wish for, more than anything in the entire world? Have you dared to admit it to yourself yet?
Your desires are living within you, and they are a form of divine guidance. The Buddha says "Your Desires are Enlightenment," meaning that your desires will actually show the way toward human experiences you need to have, and the lessons you would benefit in learning. Through engaging with life, and your desires, you become wiser, deeper, and ultimately have a fully-lived life.
Desires may not always require the action you’d think, but through knowing your desires and being able to witness yourself in relation to them, you inherit a form of soul-strength. For example, just because you desire to travel around the world doesn't mean you HAVE to do it, or even that now is the right time. However, by looking more carefully at that desire, you may discover within it, a greater need to see and experience more than you currently are. Or conversely, that same desire could be based in a desire to escape the situation or place you currently inhabit. Your desires always have some gem of truth at their root.
When you KNOW what you desire (whether you act on it or not) you activate a powerful inner compass that can help you to understand the inner terrain of your own being. Knowing your desires, you can begin to make decisions in life that truly serve you at the soul level.
Listening to your desires whatever they are, you come to understand aspects of your purpose here on earth.
✨✨EXERCISE✨✨ Here’s a fun exercise you can do: Make a list of 100 things you desire! They can be big things or tiny things. They can be material or abstract. Write this list by hand and don’t think too hard about it. Write, and don’t stop until you’ve written all of your desires, or reached at least 100. When you’re done, email me through my website to let me know, and I’ll send you the simple magical affirmation I use to activate my highest self around my desires.
