OPINION – Carl Jung said it best: “There is no coming to consciousness without pain”
Each one of us has been gifted with a purpose and vision of what we expect our lives to become. That gift is ultimately yours and only yours to fulfill. Until it is complete there will always be an internal void that resides in all of us.
You see, for me I had to come face-to-face with some disappointments, loss and what I like to call inner resistance to find my way. The truth is the fear of the unknown and the responsibilities of living my purpose had manifested and seemed to take hold of my entire being comparable to an alien abduction.
I unconsciously blocked my blessings because my ego (edging God out) was louder than the small voice that kept telling me to teach, write, coach and inspire others. However, the problem was that my visual sight couldn’t see the power in what that small voice was sharing.
So I ignored it for a very long time and that was selfish.
I was denying my own purpose. That selfishness is what created my pain, distress, and lack of experience. I became so obsessed with my own narrative that I couldn’t see past it.
The challenge with blocking out what you are truly meant to do on this earth ends up creating unnecessary roadblocks, pitfalls and struggle in our lives. At some point there will be a message that will come forth that forces us to tune into our true alignment.
Carl Jung had it right all along…There is no coming into our own consciousness of living out our mission in life without feeling pain first. I refer to the sense of pain as the feeling of being unhappy and quite frankly uselessness while merely doing the same things daily while longing for different results.
At the end of it all…it is our “ego” as well as our own story that we continue to sell to ourselves on a daily basis that keeps out all of the possibilities, all of the power and all of our breakthroughs in life.
There is no time like the present to start listening to your inner music.
Your purpose is calling…It’s time to answer.
Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
