It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
Who do you need to become in order to have the life you’ve always dreamed of?
Making the life of your dreams a reality will require your commitment. It will ask you to claim that life and the version of you who lives it in advance – before you see the evidence with your eyes. It will require you to consistently invest in yourself and your transformation.
This isn’t about becoming something you aren’t or living a life that wasn’t meant for you. Instead, it’s about becoming the person you were always meant to be and claiming the life that’s been waiting for you.
In order to design your life the way you want it, you will have to be committed to self improvement and doing your inner work. This will include looking at your shadow and being willing to take radical responsibility for your life.
But when it comes to shadow work and the process of transformation I always say, Dig with a spoon not a shovel, you don’t want to miss some of those gems hiding in the dirt”
You won’t create your dream life by rushing your transformation or spiritual awakening. You’ll create it by taking your time to be intentional with the process of healing, looking at your shadow, and really committing to yourself, allowing for imperfection, self forgiveness, care and redemption.
You’ll begin to create your best life when you realize that none of your experiences and no part of your journey has been wasted – it has all led you to exactly the place you were meant to be.
Most of us know the life we want to live and who we want to become. I believe we’re born into this life with a blueprint of all of the options for how our lives can go. Not every path is available to all of us, but we do have choices.
The journey of transformation and creating the life of your dreams is never about becoming something you’re not. It’s about claiming the life you want and the version of yourself you want to become before you see the hard evidence in front of your eyes.
I’m not going to give you a step-by-step guide on how to reinvent yourself, because this process is less about a reinvention and more about a deep remembering or becoming.
And in order to begin that journey of coming home to yourself, you have to make a commitment to start putting yourself first. So many people live their lives putting everyone else first, and sometimes that acts as a distraction from your own personal work.
When you first make this commitment, be prepared that you may have some grief come up. Grief about the realization that you’ve put your own dreams on the back burner for far too long.
Allow yourself to feel the grief, but don’t get stuck there. Use it as an energy to help you move forward with a new commitment to living the life you’ve always wanted and investing in yourself so you can make it a reality.
In order to claim the life of your dreams and become the version of you who can create it, you have to be willing to dive into your shadow, look at your patterns, and do the inner work.
Self improvement only comes through self discipline. The discipline to look at things as they come up organically, and to take the time to integrate the lessons as they arise.
You aren’t going to completely transform yourself and your life in the blink of an eye. But if you really commit to your growth, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve come when you turn around and look back.
In hindsight, you’ll look at your journey and see how quickly you grew as you started to design your life the way you wanted it. But in the moment, it might not always feel glamorous or beautiful.
Trust that as long as you’re committed to yourself and to the vision of what you are creating, the growth and change will happen organically. Especially if you learn to use curiosity to support you in your transformation.
When you think about claiming the life you dream of and the blueprint that’s already within you, imagine yourself like an acorn that’s going to grow into a huge tree one day. The blueprint for your dreams exists in you already. You just need to connect to it and trust the universe, Nature to work with you.
You don’t have to know HOW you’ll get there, you just have to stay curious to the next step on your path. The next opportunity for growth. And then you have to trust that the process will unfold organically within you.
We are designed to grow and transform, we just tend to get held up in our old patterns because it is comfortable there.
