Good afternoon friends! I hope this Monday has been good to you! I had a long and busy weekend, but all in all, it was a great weekend! I got to see many family members I haven't seen in a long time, and was able to spend some time outside, since it was warm and spring like! We cooked on the grill and enjoyed our back porch swing!
I'm looking so forward to connecting with you all in Virginia Beach! At this event, I'll be sharing new information and will be offering new workshops that I haven't given in the past. They will include:
- Developing psychic awareness
- Structured communication
- Symbols & effective communication
- Gallery channeling

Ok, now on to today's post! Today I want to take a little time to reflect on the topic of motivation. To me, motivation is the drive behind a passion, of any kind. I often come across individuals that feel they have lost motivation in their life. I think the problem isn't the lack of motivation, but the loss of or absence of passion. I've seen so many people with plenty of motivation, but they aren't clear about their passion and therefore, have a difficult time productively utilizing their motivation. When you find something you are passionate about, you must ask yourself exactly how far you are willing to go, to achieve that which you are passionate about. When you do this, you are creating space for motivation. Only you can give life to your dreams through passion and motivation. They'll never come to realization, without you. Even on the days when you feel, tired, exhausted or hopeless, devotion will be the strength you need to get you through and continue feeding the motivation. Generally speaking, when an individual aligns with a passion, devotion is a natural element in which the individual carries the passion through.
Strength, through devotion comes naturally, and is perhaps a silent element we can take a closer look at. Take some time to reflect on what you're devoted to. When we are devoted to a goal, a cause, or achieving a lifelong dream, it is that same devotionthat carries us to the next chapter within it, and perpetuates the motivation behind it. Even on our weakest and most challenging days, devotion can help pull us through, so we must acknowledge it as a contributing element to a healthy state of motivation.
Now, back to discussing motivation. In my experience, motivation and passion seem to perpetuate each other. But I believe the key is upholding space in our hearts for motivation. Some days may seem much harder than others tp put forth effort, but we must dig deeper than self imposed limits, and uphold adoration for the space we're in. We must allow ourselves to be present with our passion. Presence holds great power. Anything less will lead to troublesome worries and great despair. When we stay present, truly in the now with our passion, motivation naturally abides. If we move out of the present, and motivation is contingent upon results, we have no moved into the unfulfilling space of expectations.
On a little side note, I think it's important to acknowledge that some days you may be just too tired, or exhausted to feel any source of motivation. Let yourself rest. You need not spend all your energy on maintaining your motivation. The maintenance is already provided through passion & devotion. We're all human, simply doing the best we can.
Show up for yourself each and every day, do the best you can, and it will always be enough. Do the best you can, offer the best of yourself, and you'll always be able to look back through contentment and feel fulfilled.
Here's to a happy week filled with motivation & inspiration! xoxo
