Spontaneous joy. Greater self-confidence. Effortless Healing.
Positive energy. Adventure. Connection to Purpose.
Here are 3 reasons why exploring your passion changes your energy:
1. Connecting to passion enhances your inner knowing.
We all have passions, or at least, things that we are curious about and wish we could do more of. However, we don’t always give ourselves space to explore our deeper interests, longings and curiosities.
I often meet people who tell me they have no idea what they are passionate about. Even when they reach their goals, they feel uninspired, under appreciated, stressed and disconnected. They often find it difficult to relax and enjoy what they are, their relationships and their accomplishments.
Staying connected with the things that excite you activates your life force energy. It helps to make you a unique individual, distinct from social norms and ways of thinking. Passion links you to your vitality, your resilience to stress and to the wild, wise, irrational part of you: your inner knowing.
2. Your passion teaches you to relax about the unknown.
It’s actually quite okay if you cannot put a finger on “that one thing” that makes you come alive.
I remember when I started my own process, I would make lists of the things I felt passionate about and had no idea how they could come together into one complete picture… until they did.
Passion is often elusive and indescribable, and can never to be understood by your rational mind. Passion, can, however, be understood through how you feel: happy, awake, responsive, challenged, learning, growing, engaged, inspired, connected.
Passion is ever-evolving and multi-dimensional. It will lead you out of your boring daily routine and stretch your out of your comfort zone.
Passion also attunes you with the wisdom of your heart and to the simplicity of the present moment, where you learn to relax about the things that you cannot know or control.
3. Exploring Your Passion Purifies You.
You’ll immediately notice how a new book can bring fresh inspiration into your life, for 2 reasons:
- it confirms what you already know from within;
- it challenges you with a broader perspective or a new way of living.
Sustaining your relationship with passion over the long term is the same — it will speaks directly to your inner wisdom, and it will consistently ask you to grow.
A truly passionate heart will ask you, over and over again, to face your fears, your discomforts, your distractions, the full spectrum of your emotions, your isolation from others and all the voices of your ego that say you can’t.
Like a light in a dark forest, a passionate heart enlightens your trail, providing a vision for your life based in what you love, what you’re good at, your deepest values and a zany sense of adventure.
With each step you take, you become a believer, entrusted by life, a confidante of the spirit, a walker in miracles. Day by day, your passion serves to harmonize you with something greater, placing you in service to all that is.
