Today is my birthday and I am celebrating…. well, I am celebrating me! I am grateful for all the experiences I’ve had in my life so far, for all the knowledge that I have accumulated and for all the levels of transformation I have gone through until today. I am grateful that I am sharing all this with you. Thank you for being here with me.
There is no greater freedom than being who you are and living your life from a place of power and inner strength. There is so much joy in defining what you truly want and then start taking the steps to make it happen.
I take time to define my new desires and aspirations every year, sometimes even on my birthday, as part of my inner celebration. Why don’t you join me?
Take five sheets of paper and title them:
- My relationships
- My career
- My finances
- My internal/spiritual life
- My health
- My romantic life
I call these the 5 Road Maps Of Desires. On each page write your ultimate desires; do not hold back, start writing, get more paper if you need extra pages, juts keep writing what you would like to have and experience in your life. Keep writing. You can keep changing your mind over and over and add as many details as you can picture in your mind.
I want you to keep adding things to your 5 road maps all this week. Keep your 5 road maps papers handy so that you can keep writing things down.
Write at least 25 things in each one of them. This will start to flex your imagination muscles, so to speak. When I did this exercise for the first time many years back, I realized that it was not that easy to voice what I wanted. I had no idea that I could want many things and I thought that it felt like splurging.
Do you get that? Splurging? It was just writing what I wanted on a piece of paper. I was not in the habit of being clear about what I wanted and I censored my desires even in my thoughts, as if I was not entitled to them.
If this is hard for you right now, just think about this: how are you going to create your desired life, if you cannot even envision it? Let the imagination flow, flex your dreaming muscles and start writing what you want. Start working on your road maps of desires.
