Our goals can be taken away from us when we’re young
When we are young, we often dream about what we will do in the future and more often than not our less than consistent Self caused us problems. So, if we dreamed about being an artist one day and then an actor the next and a pilot the day after that, we were often discouraged from having such childish thoughts and told to think about a real job, even though we lacked the desire to do so; one that would provide enough money to get married, raise children, and buy a home, the kind of jobs like our family and relatives had. While meaning well, our families and relatives were doing us a great injustice when they believed we should work just for money, or work just for prestige, or work just for a family business.
Follow your feelings to achieve harmony in your life
In the end, if we follow their advice, we will suffer disharmony and live in a negative vibratory state which can cause us emotional and financial harm. Rather than discourage such ideas, families would do much better, and we would as well, if they advise us to do what makes us happy rather than what we are obliged to do; finding what occupation will provide you with the greatest amount of genuine happiness first will then lead to you to your life’s labor. And finding genuine happiness for what you do results in a positive vibratory state which makes this life a sheer enjoyment.
Encourage…not discourage your children to travel a different path
When your child is growing-up, encourage them to think big and wonderful and wacky thoughts of being an artist, an actor, a policeman, an astronaut or whatever profession that really ignites a passion or curiosity within them. As you child goes about their daily activities, they will no doubt experience positive things that accompany such worthy occupations. They will see a comedian make an audience roar with laughter; they will see a policeman save a child from grave danger; they will see a scientist discover a new planet somewhere in the farthest reaches of the universe – witnessing these various good experiences can then transfer to become the true experiences they have in their adult lives.
Support your child’s unbridled curiosity
When you child is older and enters the workforce, let them experience as many occupations that their curiosity can handle and with your full support. Let them do menial tasks, let them apply for prestige jobs, let them travel abroad and live in a hut with natives who survive on little money and eat what nature provides for them. Let them experience as many different jobs as humanly possible with the full knowledge that they will find their true calling in life after their many experiences – both good and bad.
Experiencing different occupations is meaningful and not meaningless
Many might think that job surfing is a waste of time and time is wasted money, however, we have many years ahead of us and all these experiences are not wasted since each experience results in what we are and how we go about our life’s journey. So, let them not have to do what you think they should do with their life, instead let them align themselves with the real them which is deep inside their soul. And, if they keep an open mind and fully experience each new job that they work at, our children shall exist within a positive vibratory state which will then lead them to their life’s labor.
What makes you happy?
Now, at a certain stage of life, many find themselves trapped in a job which pays them a large salary, gives them little time to spend with their family, and puts a great deal of stress upon their health. Overall, it appears to be a recipe for an unfulfilled and unhappy life. What can a person do in this unpleasant present situation they find themselves in? Well, what makes you happy? This may not be an easy question to answer since the average person will make their decision based upon their monthly bills and unpaid obligations.
Your life’s purpose manifests when you are in a positive vibratory state
However, to break the cycle, one has to view what they really want…not based upon the present, but upon their true feelings. I am not advocating just going out and quitting your present job with little or no regard for your financial and personal obligations.
Don’t allow limits to provide answers to your questions
I am saying just the opposite; start by answering the question with a relaxed mind and body with no limiting thoughts about your present situation. If you feel anxiety, you can never find that ideal job since a negative vibratory state will not and cannot ever lead you to a positive vibratory state which includes the work that you want to spend your life doing. Your life’s purpose cannot manifest under stressful or fearful thoughts and conditions.
Achieving my positive vibrational state
I have experienced what I am writing about: I was working in financial services for many years and had wanted to enjoy a new career, but due to financial and personal obligations, my dream was always after this bill was paid or that bonus was received. I never gave-up on my dream, rather, I visualized my new career every day and experienced all the joys it brought me long before it ever brought them to me.
You may face many unpleasant presents before you live your passion
As a result, it took many years of unpleasant presents to pass before I finally made the leap to a new career. I went back to university full-time and was making as much money doing odd jobs each month – selling carpets and automobiles – as I made each week in my past job. However, my vibrational state was positive and great happiness has filled my life as an English instructor in a variety of foreign countries. After 15 years of never having a single sick day and still enjoying my work and my students, I know that I found my life’s labor and it wasn’t all about hard work; it was about finding and pursuing what I had a passion for.
Love your labor and not the money
Find your vibratory balance first and then this will undoubtedly lead you to your life’s passion. You can reach this level of awareness and achievement by first, not listening to the wisdom of others. Second, by listening to your Self and then third, act accordingly. At that point, you will never work another day in your life.
