Destiny is yours to create! Are you trying to control it?

“Destiny grants us our wishes, but in its own way, in order to give us something beyond our wishes.”~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Destiny is in YOUR hands! You have the power to create it but perhaps what you think your destiny is and the vibration you put out is merely a small piece of your soul purpose! What if your destiny is BIGGER and more wonderful than you are imagining and you are limiting your creativity by trying to control the outcome?

 Control over your destiny comes in many forms. It could be constantly worrying or dwelling on past failures. It comes in the form of those little thoughts of doubt and fear that creep in. It might even be that at some point in your past you decided you couldn’t ‘have’ anything more than what you have. The negative thoughts which run through your head have the power to limit your destiny and take you off your path just as positive thoughts have the power to help in manifesting your dreams.

It doesn’t really matter what form it comes in or where the control comes from; Controlling your destiny does not work. It is steeped in resistance, effort and well, control. It is precisely that control that causes you to get stuck and feel like a hamster on a wheel going round and round. Your spirit knows where you are going and having a stranglehold on your growth merely prolongs you getting there and often times limits creativity and takes you off your path completely. Imagine what could be if you didn’t limit yourself! Imagine if you let go of HOW to get there and instead followed your intuition and inner guidance allowing things to effortlessly unfold? What if the “destiny” you “think” you’re headed towards is actually more profound, expansive and beautiful than you are imagining?

Your Spirit Knows!

“…you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”~ Steve Jobs

Beyond logic and thought there is your spirit and spiritual essence. You came here with a purpose and your spirit knows how to fulfill that purpose. You must trust that your spirit knows and will guide you. Why limit yourself by trying to control what is infinitely more than what you could imagine? All it takes to create your destiny is to put it out there! It takes trust, a bit of healing and allowing your creativity to flow freely.  Your spirit knows this. In fact YOU know your spirit knows this! How do you know you know? When you’ve been knocked off your true path, there is effort, negativity and the feeling of being stuck.  You know you are headed in the right direction when it feels good. You know when it feels right. You know it when you stand bold and tall with confidence. You know when you feel like nothing can stop you!

Let go of trying to control your destiny. Put the dream of what you want out there with the intent that whatever happens is for your highest good. Dream it, will it,  let it go and allow it to unfold. Follow your intuition and trust in spirit. Let your destiny come to you by allowing it to unfold! Embrace your true purpose and let it shine! Embrace your goodness and know that all things happen for a reason. Imagine what life would be like if your destiny is actually MORE than what you imagine!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Live on Purpose!

Have you taken ‘destiny’ into your own hands creating it and living life on purpose or do you find yourself responding to circumstances beyond your control allowing your growth period to take over?

Living life on purpose means taking your life (and growth) into your own hands. It means that YOU get to create and/or re-create your  destiny! It means knowing that whatever comes your way, you are not powerless. You are in total control of how you react and move forward in ANY situation!

Your life and growth are in constant movement that never stops. You can become the effect of it or you can generate energy, purposefully growing and moving toward your goals. There is a clear difference when you do something on purpose, without effort and consciously. Think of it like a run (or walk). You start at point A and want to go to point B. If you are running against a strong wind,  in effort, dreading every step it feels like you are ‘pounding the pavement’ and carrying dead weight. The focus shifts from enjoying the run to just getting through it.

When you decide to run ON PURPOSE instead of just one foot moving after the other unconscious of anything but dead weight, you hold your upper body straight and take each step on purpose with awareness. You become consciously engaged in the process. Those steps taken on purpose, allow you to enjoy the run, go farther, and finish faster. Taking each step on purpose also allows you to change direction at will! Perhaps there’s another path you’d like to explore. A path that is paved by you, not a path created by someone else.

Life is very much the same as going out for a run or walk. You can put one foot in front of the other and move along responding or you can tap into your inner resources, connect with your purpose and take your life and destiny into your own hands. If you are in effort, defining yourself from past experiences, resisting every step, chances are you feel stuck and you’re not enjoying the growth that as spirit you came here to experience this lifetime.

Living life on purpose means waking up and navigating which direction your life goes. It means letting go of the past, expanding your horizons and discovering who you are and what YOU really want for YOU. It means that every step you take is a choice and that you are taking ownership of that choice. When you live your life on purpose, there is no chance only choice. The choices you make and the steps you take in present time are the ones that determine your destiny!

Connect with your inner resources, listen to your internal navigation, discover your purpose, take each step with awareness, change direction if you wish, live your life on purpose and create your destiny!~Shine Your Light Debbie
