Three Magic Keys
Witnessing some of the changes that other people are going through during these times of great change inspired me to identity these Three Magic Keys and to explore how we can use other people’s experiences to begin Unlocking our Soul’s True Purpose.
FIRST KEY ~ LET GO
TEN years ago I was offered an amazing work opportunity in the Middle East which involved having less than two weeks to pack up my home; say goodbye to my friends and family; let go of almost all of my possessions – and leave behind my life in the UK.
With very little time for my fears and doubts to take hold, I followed the guidance of my heart and a couple of weeks later I was sitting on the plane feeling lighter and freer than at any other time in my life. It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life and was a great lesson in the joys and benefits of travelling light!
The wonderful music maestro, Tim Wheater, recently announced on Facebook that he had reached a “Milestone Zen Moment” and had decided to really let go by selling his house and nearly all his possessions to create the space his soul required to follow his path of creativity to seek and develop a new language of sound that will vibrate globally.
His words seemed to resonate with many of his fans as the response to his heart felt words created a wave of good wishes and expressions of longing to find the courage to take their own first steps towards personal freedom. Tim also reminds us of a quote from the inspirational writer, Julia Cameron, when she says, “Take the Leap and the Net will Appear.” And so it will when we trust in the universe to support us as we choose to simply Let Go…and Let God!
SECOND KEY ~ LIVE SIMPLY
LIFE is so much more enjoyable when we stop chasing our own tails in pursuit of whatever it is that we think is missing in our lives – or what we believe we need more of. Once our basic needs of warmth, food, shelter and community are taken care of, anything else we may acquire or experience is just the icing on the cake!
Last week I had the pleasure of hearing Rev Peter Owen Jones talk at Alternatives in London when he shared his story of How to Live a Simple Life; a process that he demonstrated during the BBC TV series of the same name after being given the challenge of following in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi and living for three months with no money, no home and no obvious means of support.
His story is a real inspiration and one that you can hear for yourself during his talk at Naked Dragon next month.
THIRD KEY – LOVE YOURSELF
Without a strong and healthy sense of Self-Love we can become needy and form attachments to other people in a mistaken belief that their love for us can fill a hole in our hearts which only the power and grace of self-love can truly heal.
One of Naked Dragon’s favourite speakers, Dr David Hamilton, has recently turned his attention to exploring the health benefits of Self-Love with his new course, I Heart Me: The Science of Self .
David’s scientific research into the power of our thoughts to heal our lives has led him to believe that Loving Ourselves is the most powerful and transformative thing we can do for ourselves.
Living from the Heart
Since identifying these Three Magic Keys and starting to Unlock my Soul’s Purpose, I have begun to experience some wonderful shifts within my inner and outer worlds. There is a real sense of ‘coming home to me’ and it feels really good to know that I am finally on the right path towards Living my Life Simply…and From my Heart.
