Listen to the Call of Your Wild Side!

Last week I was in blessed to celebrate my 60th birthday in gorgeous Maui.  What a glorious way to start off my new year and decade. (My s*xy 60’s!) I loved the warm, beautiful water, the tropical weather and flowers, the abundance of delicious and healthy food, the friendly people and no freeways!  

It made me realize I’m ready for another exciting adventure in my life – a move to a place that I feel completely in harmony with.  My body, mind and spirit are exhilarated yet calm when I’m there.  And I can do my coaching work anywhere.  I just need a phone and a computer.

Some people might think, what’s the matter with you?  You live in a great beach town in Southern California.  It’s true, it’s a great place.  And what’s also true is that there is some place even better for me at this time in my life.

It feels as if a wilder side of me is being called forth, asking me to fly higher.  Yippee!!

At various times in our lives, we need to make changes to bring our spirits in alignment with our environment, work and relationships.

Create A New Life For Yourself

I work with people all the time helping them create lives that really make their hearts and spirits sing.  Lives that are fun and meaningful!

You don’t have to be unhappy to want to make changes.  Sometimes you just notice something is missing.  You do need to listen to your heart and spirit.  They will tell you what’s harmonious, meaningful and fun for you.

>Then you can begin the creation process.  Don’t feel like you have to rush it, keep moving forward and let it unfold.

When clients come to me who want to create new, meaningful and fun lives, I start them off with a questionnaire to see what they’re dreaming of and where they are in their creative process.  

Questions to Start Creating Your New Life So if you’ve been feeling the call of your wild side, or even just a desire to create something new, I want to share a few of the questions I have my clients answer.  Have fun answering them and don’t let your mind get in the way.  Be bold.  This is just the first step. What does your new life look like?  Dream big! Where will you live – in a house, condo, apartment, guesthouse?  What style is the building?  How big?  What state and city?

What work will you do – the same as your current work or something new?   Will you work from home or commute to an office?  If commuting, how long is your commute?  What is the environment like?  What kind of people are you working for and with?  What is exciting about your new work?  How much will you earn annually?

Will you be married, have kids, or be single?  Do you have lots of friends or a few close ones?  What activities do you do together?

Who is in your new life?  This is your life, you get to choose!  Don’t put someone in because you think you should.  Notice who isn’t in your new life.

Don’t Listen to Your Excuses!

After you’ve answered the questions, then see what steps you can take to get started making your changes.  If you can’t do it on your own, get help.

Most importantly, don’t tell yourself you can’t have the life you’ve just imagined.  Don’t listen to your mind if it tells you anything negative.  The key to creation is an open mind, a loving and trusting heart, and a spirit unencumbered by your mind.  There is no place for the ego in this process.

The mind will try to keep you safe and protect you from taking a risk.  Don’t let it!  You don’t need to worry about being safe.  When you are on your path Source will guide and protect you – if you allow it.  Things will fall into place if it’s the right move.  If it isn’t, you’ll get blocked.  Pay attention to those blocks.  Don’t let your Will try to overpower Source.  You can’t, so don’t try.  It’ll backfire on you.

Blocks can either be from Source or your own thoughts.  Listen carefully and ask where it’s coming from.  You’ll know.

Take a leap of faith, no matter how small or large, and let yourself land softly.

Choose to let your spirit run wild and free.  Choose to let your heart love full out.  Choose to let your mind support your heart and spirit.  Choose to let your life be guided by your dreams.

Imagine the possibilities…

Carol's Services

I teach people to overcome the obstacles that keep them stuck yet longing for romantic relationships, more self-confidence and inspiration to accomplish their dreams.

We sometimes forget what it feels like to live from our hearts and souls. We forget the thrill of taking the brakes off and flying. Life is dull if we just live from our minds.

Are you - or someone you know - settling, for less than exciting, either in relationships or a career?

You'll find other articles there and more in-depth information about both my services and me.
