The Voice

Allowing your voice to finally be heard.

Have you noticed that no matter what you do in life, there has been one constant nagging voice in your head that always shows up at certain times in your life? It’s the same voice that has been with you since you were a child. You know, the one that dreamt your dream for the first time. The one that if you had no obstacles, you’d drop everything to do it. I know you know what I mean. That voice keeps coming back because that voice wants to stop being ignored. That voice is your spirit that wants to express itself and until you truly let your spirit do the walking in your life, you will continue to hear it and more than anything, feel unfulfilled on some level. Don’t get me wrong, the love of your life will show up or has shown up and that makes you content; for awhile. That job you love, makes you happy too; for awhile. You will find things throughout your life that will distract you and even make you happy, but there will be a sense of incompleteness or unfulfillment until you finally decide to allow that voice to not only be heard, but paid attention to.

Have you noticed how there are some people that have a higher "bother" quotient than somebody else? You know that person. The one who is so easily irritated at everthing going on in their lives and by the world in general. There is a reason why so many people find themselves unhappy and irritated at everything in life and it’s not because of the outside world. If we allowed our authentic selves to be expressed in every moment and in every opportunity, then everything on the outside world wouldn’t have such an impact on our everyday lives. There lies a deep desire within all of us that wants to be fulfilled and until we give it the outlet to do so, we will continue having it show up at different points in our lives. I believe that we all have a purpose, a gift that is uniquely ours and it is up to us to give it the platform to shine. We can make all the excuses in the world as to why we can’t do it or why we shouldn’t do it and none of those reasons will make that voice go away. That is because it is part of who we truly are. That is because every part of our BEing knows that that is what fills our soul and if we allowed ourselves to believe in ourselves the way we should, we would would come to realize that we are capable of doing anything! Those desires weren't placed in your heart randomly. It is your spirit itching at you to let it be! To live up to your infinite potential! To live a life so fulfilling that no-thing and nobody can take away that joy that is YOURS! This is what that voice is about. This is what you need to start paying attention to. This is the voice that will change your life if you love yourself enough to believe in yourself! No more excuses as to why you can’t. No more reasons as to why your dream isn’t possible. No more excuses as to why you aren’t seizing this very moment that IS your life and making each minute on this Earth as magical and fulfilling as it is meant to be! Now stop reading this and step into your life you were meant to lead! That voice is calling you.

I really enjoyed this article, Shari. Finding out what we're good at and going for it is the best way to live a fulfilled life. And true, listening to that inner voice and ignoring that which irritates you is the biggest step.

Thank you so much Shari, this article is beautifully written, and I will definately be blogging about it. I can really relate, as I ignored my inner voice for a very long time, and like you said, found things that made me happy for a while, but never really felt content or satisfied. I have recently decided to listen to that voice, and reading your article reinforces the idea that I'm on the right path.

If you're interested, you can check out my article relating to why I started my blog in the first place, it relates well to your subject matter.

Thank you Shari, that means a lot to me... I've been having one on those "down" days, wondering if I'm kidding myself with all of this. I needed to heat that. I think you're pretty awesome too... thanks again xx

Those are just the voices you DON'T want to listen to. THose are the ones that have held you back forever and keep you stagnant. THat is NOT your spirit speaking. Ignore that one. Follow your heart!
