Today’s focus is the topic of desire. This website has been a long time coming for me, and it’s something I’ve desired for quite some time. If you know me personally, you know that I have been wanting to be a writer for years, and have been consistently tweeting recently about different vibes and different foci that I am giving my energy to on a daily basis. I have desired to have more of a free life, allowing my creativity to speak for itself, but finding lots of blockages. But before I even get there, let me get to the meat of today’s word.
The word desire is so powerful. I know personally when I think of the word desire, I think of it in a sexual content, or something very passionate. It’s a very intense word, and it’s an exciting word in nature. It’s this sense of longing for something or someone, even if it’s just a fantasy that you want to be fulfilled. Having desires that don’t fit the norm are okay. Society has told us that sometimes, our desires are not allowed to be fulfilled because of extenuating circumstances that limit our ability to have what we truly want.
What if you took the time to forget about what limitations there are, and manifested what you truly wanted? What if you took your desires on a date, and fully immersed yourself in them, without listening to your negative self talk? Where would that leave you? I want you to think about what you desire right now.
Personally, right now I desire to have more peace in my life and I have a desire to continually push myself to work on my craft and what is important to me. That voice in the back of my head can constantly tell me that ‘I’m not good enough’ or ‘there are others that are doing or have what you want’, but does that really mean that I have to succumb to those voices? I want you to reflect on something that is important to you, and the blockages that have hindered you from gaining what you want. If you allowed those pieces of negative energy to eradicate themselves from your spirit, would you feel closer to gaining what you truly want?
When you have a desire, you want to make sure that it’s a healthy one. I remember at one point, I had a desire to just leave work and get drunk, mainly because I was stressed out and wanted to let go. Those desires would manifest themselves into me finding myself in precarious positions that weren’t healthy for me. Be intentional about the desires that you have, and make sure that they are serving your highest purpose, and your highest good. Yes, we all want more money, love, or something else, but is the process in which we are manifesting that healthy? Looking at others’ possessions and desiring what they want is not the way to inherently receive what is meant for you.
Start from the base level of why you want the object of your desire, and whether or not it is serving a higher purpose, or whether it’s something that is a temporary fix. Remember, you have a lifetime of things that you can want, and these things can come quickly, or may take time to materialize. Don’t freak out if it doesn’t come to you immediately – if you stay faithful and stay grounded in your ‘why’, you can never go wrong when manifesting what you truly want. If the desire is going to make you a happier person, go for it. If it’s something that is temporarily going to fix a situation, consider whether or not it is the most beneficial for you in the moment. Remember, desires aren’t you being selfish in any way – even the most luxurious things you desire are able to be acquired if the intention behind them is positive and rooted in true form to your spirit. Your spirit is resilient, and has the ability to manifest what it wants as long as the work is put into gaining what you want. Keep your eyes on the prize, because it’s so easy to get derailed by things that do not truly matter in the grand scheme of things. When you set your eyes on something that you want, your endeavors and desires can be met if they are stamped towards your ultimate glory, and not instant gratification.
You are able to give as much as you are able to receive. That is what true balance in the world is. When you learn this, you can teach others that they’re able to do the same. The Universe is happy to share its energy with us, and that energy never can die. When you decide to honor your desires, you give yourself permission to be one with the Universe and receive support for your growth and happiness.
Today, I want you take some time to think of your desires today. I want to thank Kyle Gray, author of “Raise Your Vibration” for giving me the following questions to share with you all. Answer the following questions in your spare time and reflect.
- What is it you want in life?
- How will it make you feel when those desires are met?
- What can you do to create that feeling now?
- How can you express that emotion?
Also, set this intention for your day.
“Desire is a powerful emotion. I have recognized that I have needs and I am finally honoring them. It’s okay for me to want some things from life because the truth is there’s enough for everyone. In receiving, I bring balance to the world. In manifesting, I show others that they can manifest too. I am grateful to be held by the Universe as it meets my needs for the highest good of all.”
Now, I wouldn’t be a real ass bitch if I didn’t answer my own questions that I’ve shared with you guys. So, I’ll go first with sharing my answers to my questions.
In life, I want to find a healthy balance between my spiritual, my mental, and my physical. I desire to have an abundance of spiritual wealth, and am grateful for all that I have brought to the forefront. I desire to have a balance with my work life and creative life, and when those desires are met, I will feel more fulfilled. I will feel as though I am making headway with my own true passions and life’s purpose. To create that feeling right now, I am writing this post and sharing my own personal feelings of desire with the Universe and anyone who reads this. This post is my way of expressing these emotions, and the more that I continually write and put my true feelings out into the Universe, the more it will bless me and others around me. The Ancestors are willing to support me through all of this, and I trust and have faith that every little inch matters.
Now, I encourage you to go have a date with your desires today, and really focus on the intention that was set earlier. Remember to ground yourself before really thinking about what you want, and take some time to meditate if need be before actually writing out your desires or thinking of them and what will make your soul feel fulfilled.
