YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
10. I am aligned with my desires and purpose
Being aligned with your desires and purpose does not come easily to everyone. In today’s world it is easy to stay at jobs that make us miserable, don’t pay well and don’t even come close to what we are meant to do here in the world. It is easy to get sucked into doing what others are doing even if it doesn’t align with us. A lot of people don’t even believe it is possible for everyone to get paid doing what they love, so they don’t even try. Until we learn to align with what our soul desires and our purpose in the world, we may experience financial hardships, confusion, and even depression.
It is very scary for us to take that leap of faith and say, “screw that nine to five” and just go for what we truly want to do. The truth is, sometimes, that is the only way to reach your desires and financial freedom. I began to hear many stories of other women who had miserable jobs but they could not afford to leave until they made more money and it wasn’t until they finally got clear on what they wanted and took that leap of faith, trusting and hoping that by leaving, the right opportunity would come along, until that is exactly what happened.
I was receiving this message while I was experiencing the same exact thing in my life. I felt unfulfilled with my freelance client work, it was draining me of all my time and energy and taking away from me working on my business and spending time with my son. I kept waiting for my business to make more money so that I could afford to quit that job but I had no time to commit to my business in order for it to grow. I felt stuck. But I got that message loud and clear over and over to take that leap. I knew that in order for my business to make more money, I had to first trust that it would once I committed to it 100%, which meant I had to quit my job.
I realized that I was subconsciously scared that if I quit my freelance job, my business would tank and I would have to go back. I felt that the Universe was trying to test me. I had to prove that I believed enough in my business to commit to it 100% so that is what I did. After quitting, not only did I feel more creative and inspired than I have in a long time, but my business began to generate more sales. The Universe wanted me to live out my purpose but first I had to align with it.
We all have something we are truly passionate about, and if we are not making the time to pursue it, the financial abundance may never come until we trust and commit to it. It can be a difficult decision to take the leap of faith and respect your values enough to decline work when you need the money. But if it does not feed your soul, it holds you back from what you are meant to do. Taking that leap can help you make time and space for clients and customers who can’t wait to work with you and will probably pay more as well.
If you have to do it on the weekends or after hours, you owe it to yourself and to your future to invest in yourself. Do it little by little. When you finally get to do what you truly love and make a living from it, it does not even feel like work. If simply feels like you are living your dream!
