Asking ‘What do you want?’ is the most important question. Because it’s evocative. It mines deep.
Since it’s a powerful question, you need to stay with it. To summon change. Incubate your own creation, from the blueprint and pattern of your destiny. And it’s a human quality, to think of the self. Nothing incorrect about that fact, just unique among nature.
Yet, it is precisely this type of question that has propelled us into spiritual, mental and emotional ecstasies. Because it also helps us create or re-create our physical environment. It’s the beginning of anything that’s great and wonderful. That is, when you mine deep enough.
Imagine if you knew precisely what you want. Really want. Only that deeper reason behind all the outer reasons for wanting ‘things’ is all you need.
You could have anything. Express who you really are. Leave that legacy you always felt you would.
You could write (or finish writing) that book. Or create that new lifestyle. Maybe help garner support for that worthy cause. You could attract a tribe of cohorts who get you. Just about anything. Because you know your own heart.
I share my morning practice, here. Of writing my dream-plane experiences. Because the habit is stimulating my creativity. Not only that, but my memory of facets of my purpose. I also share how sometimes my sleeping dreams develop into my waking dreams. It’s how I spur myself to make something come true. Advising myself on important matters of the day. People I will meet. Circumstances. Initiation.
Ask your inner self, in your journal, what you really want.
I often advise writing as part of the spiritual process for your enlightenment. Because that empowers your spiritual alchemy. Writing–and you don’t have to be good at it–loosens the ego’s hold. You can start just with lists of gratitude. Of appreciation. Letters to your holy guardian angel. Or anyone. They’re private, since you don’t have to mail them. They’re for your inner development.
And, I recommend doing this by hand. So you are stimulating the brain. Schools used to support this important connection. But now children use laptops and tablets. They’re not developing this creative part of the brain that’s unique to each one. Because what’s in a software application can only do as it’s ‘programmed.’
I also share my morning ritual to fuel that spark. The one the Mystery School calls the individualized flame of God. The threefold flame. The Logos. It’s in you, Me. And all life. Right there, on the inner altar. Since it shines its light in this dark world it helps you and those around you. Reminds you what you were aware of before you were born. Why you are here.
There’s a video that expands on this question.
Business coach, Nicole Greer, speaks of how people abandon their plans by getting in their own way. How they go through the motions. Get to that someday, that something.
She recommends getting your ‘flame up and shining bright.’ By fanning and sustaining that spark within you. That willingness to do whatever you need to do. To get what you want. Which can only happen when you do what needs to be done.
She mentions how dreams fade. But when you write them down, they are there to revisit. This is true about dreams during night sleep. It’s also true about our dreams, the ones born in the heart.
What do you want? If you don’t know, watch this. Still watch it even if you do know, but would like to rekindle that flame into a bonfire. Run time is about 18 minutes, so schedule it in. I highly recommend it. Even watch it and take notes. So you’ll have material to bring to your coaching session.
