If we embrace nature as our reflection we can discover patterns that will give us insight to the process of human evolution. We know a flower has reached it’s full potential when it blossoms enough to fully emit a fragrance. When a flower is closed you will only get a hint of its allure. Imagine only being familiar with experiencing gardens filled with unopened flowers your entire life. You would have no idea how much more alive your sense of scent could be if all of the flowers had a chance to fully bloom.
This entire planet is a garden and we are the flowers. Many of us transcend without allowing ourselves to fully blossom. We all have different scents to emit but we have been conditioned to believe only a few fragrances are valid. We have created a global economic system based on the foundation of this idea. Now that this system is breaking down because it is no longer sustainable we are being forced to explore avenues outside of popular discourse.
When you have spent your entire adult life basing your self worth on a career that is quickly becoming extinct, you come to a new fork in the road. You have no choice but to re-evaluate your sense of self worth. This space can be very unnerving and exuberating all at the same time. It triggers a deep sense of cognitive dissonance that can potentially serve as a catalyst for your evolution.
This is the perfect opportunity to explore yourself outside of your mind and inside of your heart. The keys to your path of success can be found within your heart’s desires. We have been taught to neglect our passions for a “false” sense of financial security. Pursuing a career that does not satisfy the soul can lead to resentment and chronic stress. It is time to interact with the world in a more authentic way so we can experience a true sense of fulfillment.
To unravel this hidden part of ourselves we need to face the fears within our heart. We have allowed societal norms to influence and limit our perspectives. This has led us to become lost within false identities that are not aligned with our higher self.
Walking Through the Fear
Once you decide to align with your purpose, parts of you begin to die. Friends, jobs and many things you may have been attached to start falling away. Your comfort zone is slowly dismantled before your eyes. This is when the most strength is needed to keep moving forward. Fear is never the REAL issue when choosing to live from the heart, allowing fear to stop you from moving forward is.
Friends and family members will judge you for leaving your “safe” career behind and investing in yourself. They are only projecting their fear upon you connected to not having enough courage to do the same. You will have times where you will feel like giving up because things are not going your way. There will be times where your frustration may bring you close to a nervous breakdown. This is only because there is no way your mind can fathom how opportunities and support will show up in your life. Your intuition is the most accurate compass, not your mind. Love will always lead you back to yourself and your heart is the GPS to follow along the path of fulfillment.
