Ever feel like you have little or no say in how your life goes? Most people believe that dreaming about having a better life is for children, like believing in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy. Now is the time for you, even after you’ve grown up and matured, given up on your dreams because you came to believe they were not real or possible, they were only fantasies, wishful thinking, and energy wasted on false hope.
There are many contributing factors to you’re believing that there is no possible bright future waiting for you that have been in play throughout your whole life.
In the moment you were born, you were so excited to have the opportunity to play out your role as a sacred blessing and contributing to the world. Not long after that first breath, though, you began your struggle to fight, trying to hold on to your divinity, while family circumstances, caretakers, friends, teachers, celebrities, society, and “the system,” eroded your true being to devolve into a manageable member of the human-machine.
If you were not born into a family with massive financial resources, were the recipient of a great inheritance, won the lottery, or some other unexpected windfall was bestowed upon you, you simply resigned yourself for settling for survival, just getting by, making the best of what you have, or some other form of mediocrity. All the while, denying your own sense of royal divinity.
It’s true that our society makes considerations for those who have all the marbles, while the rest of us are expected to fall in line as the worker bees in soulless servitude of the queen bee (representing those who control the world’s resources and therefore usurp control over all its inhabitants).
If you have encountered drama and trauma along your journey, be not dismayed, this has imbued you with knowledge and insight which is critical to your metamorphosis. Now is the time to embrace who you are, all of you, if you have any intention of allowing yourself to evolve into the divine being you were born to be.
Breaking through the thick layer of programming which has led you to where you are today takes an incredible amount of will, strength, and fortitude to see to its annihilation. Now is the time for you to embrace your challenges in life as your training ground, preparing you for this event if you choose to allow your evolution to continue.
It’s easy to get discouraged, especially if you’re stuck working in a dead-end job just to make the ends meet with little or no sense of pride or satisfaction, numb to the fact that all your efforts are put forth for the benefit of someone else, while you garner your meager wage which you must manage carefully to survive. One wrong move, and you’re done.
Oh, but you could work hard every day to take it easy when get your Social Security benefits, which they are raising the age requirements for, because… well, you’re expected to live to be 78 years old. They want to pay you as little as they can between the time you retire and the time you die, so they raise the age from 65 to 67 (that’s 11 years), or 70 (8 years of benefits) if you want a little bit more per month. And good luck trying to make a living on what they give you.
Those of us who are best prepared for retirement, have our own 401(k) and we can (some of us more than likely more than) double our retirement take home which may enable you to eek by, in the same manner you’d been accustomed to in your working years, but more likely than not, you will find yourself having to continue to work to subsidize your retirement income.
That is, unless you change your life, and now is the time for you to start by allowing your mind to go to those forbidden places, your dreams, and desires. Rekindle the flame of your imagination with little a little action here and there, and ready yourself for a new outlook on life, and the life which was your birthright can begin to unfold for you.
This is why I, along with others, are vowing to Never Retire. I feel as though my best years are yet to come, and I have a great deal of contribution ahead, continuing to empower others to achieve their highest and best and make the world a better place.
I have had the privilege of being with people in their final hours, and the biggest regret most of them have is all the (endless) regret for not doing more and/or pursuing their dreams. Many people feel as though if they haven’t pulled the trigger on their dreams before they’ve progressed in age, that it’s too late. Let me tell you, it’s never too late because Dreams Can Come True in Your Golden Years. (Be sure to tell your parents and/or grandparents that they still have time.)
Or you might be thinking, My Life Has Been So Awful that nothing good could come from it. Not so. If it weren’t for all that drama and trauma, you would not be so perfectly qualified to succeed because no one, no matter how much school they’ve attended could possibly have the knowledge that you have from having experienced your life’s events on the front lines. No one.
You have a particular Purpose, Message, Passion, and Mission (PMPM) in life crying out for expression, and you have all the tools necessary to bring this to full fruition. Now is the time for you and anything that you need will be provided to you, providing you step out in faith allowing your life to expand and unfold in all its glory.
Using the power of your imagination, imagine you have all the money to do whatever you wanted to do without having to work a day for anyone else. What would you most love to do? What activities in life would bring you satisfaction and joy? What would you do for fun?
The answers to these questions are clues leading to “the real you” who is waiting to emerge. Start finding ways to engage in these activities in any way that you can, now. If you can’t actually do those things, then spend time reading about them, playing games around them, writing out stories about what you will do when you can, and start making plans to actually do them. Feeding the flames of your passion(s) in these ways will bring the desires of your heart closer to you.
And if you’re finding yourself working for a living, find a way to do those things that you love, that provide you with a sense of satisfaction and purpose, and allow compensation to flow to you from the doing of the things you love to do. Blessings await those who are bold enough to pursue their dreams without giving up.
You don’t need an inheritance or to win the lottery, Now is the time for you to break through the heavy layers of social programming, freeing yourself enough to start doing the things you love to do, allowing your evolution to take place, and reach for more.
