13 days of Meditation- Day 1- What Will You Do With The Life You Have Been Given?

For the rest of September, I will be writing my daily meditations and revelations not just from my yoga practice, but from my daily life. I hope my revelations can bring you courage and inspiration to live a life “FULLY ALIVE”. The blog post will begin with a revelation and some insights to guide you. Answer the 1 main question below! 

Today’s revelation: 

“You are beautiful in who you are, fully alive, beautiful.

You carry the essence of life, expressive, beautiful.

Let go and surrender to the goodness that is everywhere, in you and surrounding you.

Revive your inner child, feed your spirit. 

You only need to focus on your journey with me, not anyone else’ journey.”

It is important to note that we are spiritual beings. Without accepting the spiritual aspect that creates life, our growth as a human being will be stumped. There is no true growth without reflecting on the past and moving forward with healing and forgiveness. 

One day, I decided to take charge of my life and become a physically healthy person. I needed to get fit, to start moving my body, to lift off from the sluggish energy that was effecting all parts of my life. It was affecting my career, my relationships, my mood and I wanted to take charge. I had little energy to maximize.

I started doing yoga and ever since then, I have noted a dramatic increase of energy and spiritual insight. As I lay there on my mat, I would let go of my worries, my anxieties, my comparisons of how well other people were doing versus myself. 

We seldom take time to reflect on how far we have come. Two years ago, I quit my full time job to create the life I truly wanted. Within the two years, I traveled to Brazil, Ecuador and Australia. Sometimes we find ourselves free, but still, often comparing ourselves to others. That is why we need to envision what we want in life. We can work all our lives, seeking for the illusion of happiness, achieving the next goal, next thing, yet feeling empty. We must be content in the now. To breathe fully and feel the life that is within. 

What will you do with the life you have been given?

We often feel entitled, but we need to see that life is a gift. Our job is to seek wholeness, to seek that which we were called to. So what do I envision my life to be?  I want to see that I have influenced others for good, that I have touched lives in a grand scheme, in a global way. Perhaps I can compare myself to others and feel inferior in someway, or I can walk the journey that has been given to me and nurture the dreams within that causes me to wake up each day. That is what I call a human being- fully alive.

  1. Rebecca, what a very lovely and inspiring post. Earlier this year I left the retail business that I had built up and run for six years, to join my husband’s company, follow the path that feels right to me, and become a personal development and small business coach. I am joyful every day about my decision – it feels absolutely right, in so many ways, not only because I feel it carrying me towards a destination I want to reach, but because I am LOVING the journey.

    Looking forward to the rest of your meditations!

    1. Wow Liz! I am so proud of you. It takes a lot of guts to make a move and try something new, something even more challenging and freeing. Congratulations on being courageous, fully alive and loving the journey as well!

      I will be posting my next meditation now!
