Have you noticed I’ve gotten smaller over the years? Has it come to your attention that you’re feeling less passionate and excited than when you were an adolescent or a young adult?
What happened to that juice, Friend?
I know one thing that has happened to it—you have left it behind after each and every disappointment in your life.
Each time your had dreams have been dashed, a little piece of me was left with that dream. Every time you were disappointed, hurt, betrayed, abandoned or had to settle, a piece of me (Your Spirit) died—and a piece of your passion, excitement and exuberance died as well.
Yes, it is sad. But there is hope. You can revive that lost passion. You can rekindle the enthusiasm and you can reignite the spark of excitement about life!
By making a list of the biggest disappointments of your life. And then, one by one, go back to those times (in meditation of course) and visit the “you” before the disappointment happened.
And then—now here’s the key—change the outcome!
Yes, that’s right. Give that “you” the dream they wanted. Don’t judge it. Don’t second-guess it. Just give that “you” what they were hoping for (in spades). Watch them become so excited as their dreams come true. Be happy for them (even if what they wanted is not even close to your current dream).
And then come back to full consciousness and do it again—for every past “you” who didn’t get what they wanted.
And voila! Your spirit shall be reborn.
How cool is that, eh Friend?
With oceans of love,
