And when we’re sitting in relaxation we can connect to inspiration, and that inspiration may come in the form of maybe a childhood dream or even the next step to take in your own career or personal life.
You know, I remember when I was sitting in meditation, I connected to this joyful feeling that I once experienced sitting in Mrs. Reed’s seventh grade English class. Mrs. Reed was that teacher who fostered my love for communication. You know, I knew as a little girl I want to write and speak for a living. So breathe, and ask yourself: when you were a child, what did you want to do when you grow up? Yeah, we’re each here to live a purpose in this world and our dreams and our desires will guide us on this path to live this purpose.
You don’t have to see top of the mountain of your dreams to start on this path. Breathe! And ask yourself what is the first step: follow your intuition and please don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis. You have to believe that you are on the right path even if you don’t know where the path is going.
You know, my initial steps did not make rational sense at all for someone that’s a physician: Yoga teacher training, traveling the world, learning meditation, writing a blog — and yet today I stand here literally almost four years to the date of waking up from life-saving surgery finally connected to the purpose that little Romie had in her heart over 25 years ago.
You will, in your life, reach a fork in the world. When you do, don’t panic. Stop and breathe! When you reach that path of your purpose, you will look back and realize that everything good and bad and even devastating that’s happened happened for a reason. Everything in your life connects and you — only you had the answers in your heart all along.
So breathe! You’re alive. What are you going to do about it?
