Changing careers can be so overwhelming!

If anyone ever tells you that changing careers is easy, they aren’t telling you the whole story!

Take the road less traveled to find your passion!

Take the road less traveled to find your passion!

As many of you already know, up until recently I worked as an accountant for many, many, years.  And while I’m very good at keeping books, I’m also very bored with the career.  I needed to make a change to something more challenging and meaningful.

The problem with changing careers is the waiting for the new career to make enough money to actually do you some good.  I have been working on this site since August.  I know, not enough time to actually expect anything to come from it.  But it would be nice if things could surprise me. Show me that I’m really on the right track!  Pennies here and there that I can’t have until I’ve earned lots more pennies is not going to cut it.  I need to make enough to buy groceries.  Pay for my health insurance. And of course all those other mundane things we have to include in our daily lives.

Whatever happened to living your dream because it’s what makes your soul happy?  I find it discouraging that I have to turn this project of sharing my knowledge into something financial simply because I still need to eat.  The Universe promises to provide abundance once you start following your passions!  I have a hard time defining “abundance” unless it’s in monetary form.  These are the things that get in the way of living a truly spiritual life.

I don’t know about you, but I have read lots of books about becoming “one with the Universe” and “bring Jesus into your heart!” and all the other sound-bites one hears at various seminars.  What does it really mean?  How does a person “Live in victory every day!” unless someone else is living in loss at the same time?  There has to be balance in the universe and in our lives.  All these people who preach that we can all have everything we want in exchange for our obedience and our silence when we see that what we have is at the expense of others.

Out in my gardens I get to see new life unfold. Watch that life mature, bear fruit, and then die.  There is a simplicity and fairness about the whole live and death thing.  The beauty that the plants share with us during that life-span can be breath taking!  How do we incorporate that simplicity and beauty into our petty little human lives?  How do we live our dreams, being true to ourselves, and still survive in a world that is dominated by inequality, greed, despair, and fear?

Am I on the right path now, or was I on the right path before?  How am I supposed to know when the outcome is so hard to define?

Whatever the answers are, all I can do is be who I am.  Continue to share what I know for those that want my knowledge.  And somehow find a way to support myself while staying true to myself and my spiritual path.

I hope that by sharing my feelings as I go along on this journey, I can help others who may be going through similar hurdles.

Blessed Be,

Manifesting My Dreams

Road to the future

Manifesting dreams and the road to the future

Today I am reminded that this new life path I am on is completely different than my old path.  There are no time constraints.  I work when I want, which is generally all day.  I think I put in more time on this website than I ever did in an accounting job!  I get started researching and writing, or updating ads, or even surfing the social networks and I end up losing track of the time!  And I love every minute of it!

Now, the next step is to expect everything I’m doing to work.  In my daily meditations, I need to focus on seeing this website and my preferred lifestyle in action and working.  Providing me an outlet for my creativity and an income to support me.  This visualization will help to increase my excitement about my future and that will increase the power of my inner visions!  This really is an amazing thing to witness!

Then, I just keep moving forward.  One step at a time, one post at a time, and one article at a time.

In the accounting world, or rather the working outside the home world, my measurement for my accomplishments was the dollars I earned but putting in one hour at a time.  Always having to watch the clock.  Doing things on someone else’s schedule.  “You have to be in the office and ready to work exactly at 8:00 am and you cannot think about anything other than work until 5:00 pm when I decide to let you go home!”  That seems to be what most employers want of us.  Did I get anything out of working as an accountant?  Yes.  I did.  At first it was the idea that I was doing something of value for my employer and my employer showed it’s appreciation for my efforts by paying me.  That fades when you are asked to do more and more to the point you are using all your energy and you receive the same level of “appreciation”.

Then, when I worked in an accounting firm I felt like I was actually helping my clients.  I was providing a service to them that they greatly appreciated.  I received the Thank-You’s and pats on the back from the clients.  But still only brought home the number dollars as set by my employer.  And there was still the requirement to be at the office when my employer expected me to be there whether there was work to do or not.

So, all that being said, my new life path is one where I set the hours.  Or not.  I live by my own choices.  I know what I need to do to move my life forward and I am the one who decides when and how to do it.  A lot of the rest is up to Mother Nature.

If you are following me on this path and possibly even starting your own path, it is a challenge.  Especially to people like me who have spent their entire lives living by the clock and being paid by the hour.  This sense of openness and freedom can be intimidating and unnerving.  But, it’s worth it!

Live your life the way that benefits you first.  Then allow that beneficial energy and happiness to spill over into the rest of your relationships!  The miracles and love that happen from that point on will be magickal!

Have a wonderful week my friends!

Blessed Be

Take time to meditate daily.  Clear your mind of all negative energies and allow the love of the Universe to fill you with positive and creative energy.  This is especially necessary when you have been subjected to the negativity of those around you!

This life changing path you have embarked on is a lifelong commitment. Take it one day at a time and never allow yourself to fall back into that negative, fearful, and stuck frame of mind you were in for most of your life!  New and exciting things are in store for you!  Grab on and go for the ride!
