‘Follow your dreams’ isn’t for everyone

Telling someone to follow their dreams when they are stuck in a stage of their life where they don’t even remember who they are is like telling a fish about Mars, it’s unfathomable. I met a young man who was stuck in that stage, he was kind-hearted and noble yet due to experiences he had in childhood he couldn’t figure out what to do with his life-he was stuck. He isn’t alone, I’ve encountered others who also tell me that they don’t know what their life purpose is and stay in jobs that they don’t truly love. There are many reasons why individuals get stuck in unfulfilling jobs, they range from spiritual, psychological, to even social norms.

 I have always had an inner knowing about my life purpose, yet due to the trauma that I experienced as a child I could not focus on my calling- that and I had poor self-esteem. I spent many years stuck in a romantic relationship trying to fix daddy issues I had growing up only to realize that it was impossible to make a miserable person happy and that my only responsibility was to myself. Once I came to that understanding I began to slowly piece my life together and set out to ‘find’ my purpose in life- of course I always knew what it was I just wasn’t ready to admit it to myself, the thought of it scared me. As the famous quote by Marianne Williamson has stated, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

Being stuck in trauma makes it almost impossible for an individual to fulfill their dreams, the mind subconsciously creates road block after road block, it is the one reason why healing is so important- it clears that path for one to lead a more fulfilling life- one with purpose and intention. Healing, however, is a challenge in itself, one that many are unable to even begin. I’ve met many wounded healers, people with gifts yet they remain stuck in their trauma unable to fully realize their potential. This is one of the fuels behind my work, I want to be able to help people like the ones I’ve met come into their power and beam with life. I feel this is one reason why many of us are here-to help one another remember who we are and fulfill our greatest dreams.

My greatest achievements have been hard earned yet equally as great have been my feelings of accomplishment. As much as I have enjoyed the fruits of my labor my vision is to see many more souls come out of slumber and rise to become the greatest version of themselves and achieve their dreams. This is my dream, yet I know there is a force much greater than I that has a say in what occurs, just as this force is in my life, I know it exists in everyone else’s life. I have faith in this force, it is what has gotten me through the most challenging parts of my life and I know there is a plan-we may not understand it beforehand but it slowly unravels itself to display a masterpiece-that is the power of love.
