There are moments in life when we need to walk our talk to be able to swim our dream, and other moments when, if we don’t swim our dream, we cannot walk our talk. Isn’t it tricky?
Knowing what we want and put it into practice every day, even if we have to go through frustration and challenges, rewards us with the ability to create and live our dreams. Nevertheless, sometimes, we feel uninspired and only the fresh breeze of finally living a long dreamt experience, can unlock a situation of stagnation and create the needed change to go forward on our path of evolution. I have learnt that both aspects of the journey are vital to embody our true self and live fulfilling and inspired lives.
When I started to actively put in practice the values that were vital for me on a theoretical level, everything changed. For example, once I fully embraced Veganism and committed to it, I started to live a much healthier life on many levels. I felt more vital, lighter, more energetic and at peace with nature. It was difficult at the beginning to stick to the new routine, I had to learn new recipes and new way of nourishing my body, but I knew that it was the right decision for my well being. Now that my body is acquainted, eating vegan feels natural and organic and I wouldn’t go back to my old diet.
Which value or habit would you like to fully embody, but you hadn’t the determination to stick to at 100%? You can start to do it today. Engage in your choices fully and proudly embody them. Because action is the driving engine of creating our reality, we can either take action following unconscious patterns and old beliefs, hence live a life created «by default» from a space of unconsciousness, or actively start to embody our preferred values and habit and experience a life that makes us happy and fulfilled.
Swimming in the dreamy waters of desires and inspiration is equally vital for our growth. People are often conditioned in their projects by society, instilled values or conditioning. Taking time to contemplate what our hearts really desire, gives us a glimpse of our higher mission as humans and infuses our daily life with joy and enthusiasm, giving us the courage to face even the most challenging situations. There was a moment in my life when I didn’t know what my heart desired, my passion was buried under tons of conditioned thoughts, beliefs and automatic patterns. Once I took the time to listen deeply to my inspiration, I found dreams that seemed completely out of reach and that I felt would lead only to failure and deception if I attempted to reach them in the short term. But dreaming is free and acting upon it to the best of our ability, with no expectations on the outcome -as Bashar says- finally builds up momentum. Before we can even realize it, we are living that same dreams that we envisioned. In my case, I started dreaming about swimming with cetaceans in 2012 and since then, I spent these last eight years being able to fulfill that dream consistently. And, it seems that it is still building up to something even bigger, which makes my heart sing! It is the state of being that the dream creates in us and that leads our action, the key to live our dreamlife and much more.
Live from your heart and embody your highest values.
The best version of yourself is much needed in this shared journey.
