Find Your Life Path – Heal Yourself

By Lara Honos-Webb

You can heal your life in 3 easy steps:

• Find your dream

• Supercharge your dream

• Heal your dream

Find Your Dream

You can heal so much of your own pain, by finding what you were meant to do and doing it. What is your life path? What were you meant to do? The answer is simple:

What is your most vaunting ambition? That is what you were meant to do. Shamelessly indulge in fantasies of love and success. Allow yourself to let loose your imagination and dream big. What if you saw achievement as your generous gift to the world? What would you allow yourself to aspire to if you believed that all your desires were links to your most important service to the world? The question is never “Am I good enough?” rather the question is always “Am I generous enough to share my gifts with the world?” The eyes of gentleness see vaunting ambition as unbridled generosity. Just as deeply as you ache for making your dreams come true does the world ache for your gifts. The ache inside of you is meant to drive you toward sharing your gifts with the aching world. What if you believed that the world wants to give you so much more than your most grandiose fantasy? Believe for a moment that the universe is knocking itself out right this moment to lovingly pour itself out to you. What would you do? That is your life path.

Supercharge your dream

In order to supercharge your dream, you need to practice being open to receive help and guidance. Opening to receive takes practice. Each day for the next week, practice asking people for what you need in ways that make you uncomfortable. Promise yourself you won’t feel discouraged by the response you receive. The point is just to ask for help, not necessarily to get it. (You may find yourself getting lots of help, but that’s a side bonus!) You can ask your family to take over responsibilities for you. You can ask co-workers to help with a project. You can call up corporations and ask for corporate sponsorship of one of your pet projects. You can call up friends and ask them to do you favors. Make a commitment to ask for one outrageous favor each day for a week. Open to receive.

Heal Your Dream

What do you do when you feel discouraged, begin to doubt you can make your dream a reality?

Immediately stop asking the following questions:

• Whose to blame?

• What did I do to deserve this?

• What’s wrong with me?

Immediately show radical self-care and start asking yourself the following questions:

• Am I OK?

• What do I need?

• How can I comfort myself?

What if you’re just plain tired? What if you’re not in the mood for self-transformation today? Just take it easy, curl up with a trashy magazine or a sappy movie, a piece of chocolate – whatever it takes in this moment. There’s nothing wrong with you. There never was.
