Create Your Own Destiny 

Making Sense of the Past

Sometimes, before we move forward, we need to revisit our past, looking for the seed of opportunity in our experiences. Our greatest challenges can help us get in touch with our desires. For example, if you were not allowed to express your voice while growing up, you probably would not have been satisfied until you found your voice. The pain of not having had a voice might compel you to become a speaker or talk-show host. It is up to you not to let pain hold you back, but instead to let it help you move forward.

Connecting with Your Dreams

Your dreams and desires were born through your challenges. God does not bestow desires without means to achieve them. It is very important to connect with your dreams. It is your birthright to claim your share in the world and to share your gifts with others. By claiming your dreams, you give everyone else an opportunity and invitation to claim their dreams. For example, if one of your dreams is to write a book, then as soon as you make that decision you start circulating the resources and opening doors for others. You may create a job for salespeople who will sell your book, or for a publishing company that will publish it. Rest assured that there is abundance for everyone. By claiming your share, no one will go without. Whenever I write a cheque, I silently say that every dollar I contribute to the economy comes back to me many times over.

Deciding to Share Your Gifts

Not only do you need to connect with your dreams, you also need to make a firm commitment to claim your share in the world. It isn’t necessary to figure out all the answers first. Nor do you need to be perfect at something before you start. All you need to do is take the next step and follow the energy that will lead you to the step after that. The path will become clear. The source will guide you. Unlimited abundance is created by an unlimited power greater than ourselves. We need to trust in that power to hold and love and nurture us, no matter what.

Creating Empowering Beliefs

Once you decide to claim your gifts, you may find that your internal resistance comes to the fore. The bigger your dream, the more fear you may feel. Don’t change your mind. Instead, dig deep and look for the internal beliefs that are triggering your fear. Do not let the fear stop you—it is only trying to protect you. The child in you doesn’t want you to fail. Thank the child, assure the child you are on her side, and forge ahead, taking courageous risks at a pace that doesn’t scare you. As long as you don’t buy into the sabotaging voices, but keep on challenging your internal beliefs, you will meet your destiny. When you change your inner image to match the outer reality you are trying to create, you create an effortless life.

Valuing Yourself

It is important to charge for your life work. There is nothing spiritual about selling yourself short. Of course, charity is important, but keep it separate from your services. You can donate your money and talents, and you can charge for your work at the same time. The more you have, the more you can give to others. We are meant to enjoy the abundance and beauty of this world, and money makes it possible to enjoy some of the finer things. It also allows us to help people in need. I have had to do a lot of work around exploring my beliefs about money. Money may never be one of my priorities, but it has definitely risen a notch since I did my internal work around it. As women, when we claim our fair share for doing our life work, we give permission to women all over the world to do the same. We become the change we want to see in the world, and, by making changes in our lives, we empower other women to claim their share in every way, including financial.
