As you look forward to a new year, you are going to be creating in unprecedented energies. The question to ask yourself now is what will bring me joy?
Many of you have been done a great disservice in your life. You have been taught that to follow your joy is somehow wrong or frivolous. In truth, the things that bring you joy – your innate passions and interests – are present within you for the purpose of guiding your life expression and helping you find your highest path and service. You chose those specific interests and skills to add to the beautiful mosaic of the whole in your own unique way. To be taught that is somehow wrong has conditioned you to deny your soul calling and the very things that bring you deep satisfaction.
Many of you have denied what brings you joy for so long, you don’t even know what that is anymore. We have some tips to help you with that. First, think back to your childhood. You are least resistant and most plugged into who you really are when you are children. There are clues there for you. Did you love animals? Art? The earth? Story telling? Acting out plays? Singing? Moving your body? What did you gravitate to naturally?
If you still require more clarity, we suggest you spend an afternoon at a book store or a library. Take your time and browse up and down every aisle. Where you linger longest is a good clue of where to start. This allows you to expose yourself to many different potentials without having to make a big investment of your time or money.
Dear Ones, we urge you to put joy back into your lives. Become joy detectives! Recognize it is such an important part of your life that is ready to be brought back to the forefront where it always has belonged. Allow yourself the space to explore and experiment and honour the importance joy holds in your life, and you will find yourself truly embracing living again. ~Archangel Gabriel
