Live in continual fulfillment.
This quote rings close to home for me. It is something I’ve noticed quite strongly in the past days to a week. Come to think of it, I’ve spoken about fulfillment to many this week.
It began with myself, of course - but, it was consciously surfaced in the last session I had with my therapist. (Instead of calling her by her occupation, I’ll call her by her first name - Jen.) I told her that I value everything I feel within myself. These feelings aren’t like my thoughts. My mind seems to overly interpret my concurrent feelings, so I simply let myself feel before thinking. And with every feeling, I move through the motions of my life. In doing this, I’m able to progress through proper vibrational frequencies which in turn makes life much more exuberant and easy.
To explain, let’s start by imagining your every desires - your dreams, your goals, the every small and grandeur experiences you want to get into or even dabble in. It can be anything from starting an art project to traveling the world solo. It can even be the desire to achieve peace with yourself and others :) These desires, you can feel them within yourself.
Next time you desire something, try to not think about anything - just feel it. For me, the energy circulates between my heart and solar plexus. So it’s pretty fast flowing and prominent. The feeling is strong. I’m not sure if that’s the case for every individual, but it represents well. Anyways, these feelings that we hardly notice because our thoughts overwhelm and mask them, they tell us more than words ever will. Language is fragmented. That’s why we have such a difficult time defining and describing our emotions and abstract ideas - especially the idea of love.
A friend of mine once asked me the question: "How would you define love?” In which I quickly responded with: "There is no definition. I refuse to define love.” He didn’t expect such an answer. Think about it, with something so expansive as love, you simply can’t define it. People do, yes, but that’s only because they are afraid of not knowing. This leads to labels, definitions, assumptions, judgements and so many more superficial things that are unnecessary yet existent due to simple yet fierce fears.
Which leads us back to feeling out your desires. Get rid of the physical baggage. It is the first step of fulfillment. Then, once you become aware of the energy and feeling of desire, you can pinpoint it when it occurs. With this, I’ve been able to understand myself and make decisions that line up with my inner values and desires. These decisions are ALWAYS (really emphasizing it for its immense truth) in alignment with the universe, so the sequence of events will fall perfectly into place every time.
This is why I believe I am so incessantly euphoric; why I absolutely love life and why you will continually catch me talking about how perfect life feels. I will move through life by understanding my energy and making choices off of what I feel within my heart. I don’t ever leave the mind behind, mind you. I adore the brain. But my heart chakra is a prized vessel that contains the very inner spirit I listen to. So the saying "listen to your heart” is essentially saying "listen to that inner spirit that is the all-encompassing truth and beauty of your pure self. The self that is needed to change the world and revolutionize peace, love, and unity.”
So go on, go listen to your soul speak through your feelings and make life and the universe even more incredible than it already is.
