Your Soul’s Message

Posted on: March 17th, 2014 by Dan Saia

There’s only one person on the planet who can do what you were born to do… and that is YOU!   You are the only one who can write your book, give your speech, coach your clients, impact your friends and family, share your story, etc.  Nobody else was put on this planet to do exactly what you are here to do. 

There is a perfect plan designed especially for you to be everything you want to be, do everything you want to do and have the experiences you want to have – so you can be the highest expression your soul called you to be. 

So if that’s true how come things go awry along the way?   And sometimes you end up feeling like everyone is better qualified at something than you.  From my experience, there are a number of reasons why things get out of hand and people find themselves off center and out of alignment with their true purpose.   

In 2009 I discovered how far off my true path I was.  I was living somebody else’s life, not aligned with MY unique gifts and struggling profoundly.  It was a true awakening time for me – a two year journey of rediscovering why I’m here and what my soul called me here to do.   

So, today I’m here to share a few things I’ve learned over the past few years that have guided me to the life and business I’ve always dreamed possible.  I share them in hopes they serve you on your messenger’s journey too… 

1) You Know What’s Best for You 

One of the ways I lost myself in earlier evolutions of my business was the belief that somebody else (somebody outside of myself) knew what was best for me.  And nothing could be further from the truth.  Yes, there is great value of coaches and mentors – as my clients reflected to me this past week on retreat.  However, when a coach/mentor/teacher disregards what’s going on for you as an individual and simply fits you into a formulaic process it can do a lot more harm than good.  You are not here to follow the beat of anyone else’s drum.  It’s OK to do what’s right for your heart and soul, even if it goes against the grain of what the latest “guru” is telling you.  A true “guru” will dedicate themselves to helping you find what’s right for you, not what’s right for them.  So, trust that you know what’s best for you! 

2) Follow Your Joy 

When I think of the drain and stress my business used to cause me, I cringe.  I spent most of my time doing things I didn’t want to do, and didn’t feel right in my heart.  I believed that in order to succeed you had to work hard and there was something wrong with making money joyfully and easily.  Through my awakening I discovered the opposite is true.  You were born to experience ease and joy, and abundance!  When you are truly aligned in your work and having a great time doing it, the Universe opens up for you.  Joy is a magnet!  So, rather than thinking about what you “should” do or what “others” tell you to do… focus on what brings you the greatest amount of happiness!  Follow your joy and it will always lead you to the right place. 

3) Seek Stillness 

Running your business, writing your book, sharing your message, etc. all require action in the physical world.  However, there is a LOT happening in the invisible world to support you in the pursuit of your dreams.  The Universe is always conspiring for your highest good… but when you’re hyper-focused on taking action and getting things done, sometimes you miss seeing the signs and picking up the “nudges from beyond” that are trying to show you what’s next.  So, if you’re experiencing lots of action but not a lot of progress, this is your reminder to slow down and let yourself be still.  Whether through meditation, reflective writing, sitting in nature, communing with the Divine through prayer, or anything else that connects you with your highest Self; the greatest insights, wisdom and direction come from these quiet moments of stillness and not the massive action and finished “to do” list.  Let yourself be guided by the stillness to your next aligned action.   

You’ll be hearing more from me in the comings weeks, months and years to help you align with – and liberate – your Soulful Message!   So stay tuned as we share this journey together…
