OUR JOURNEY IS A SERIES OF LIFE SEGMENTS.
In this chapter, we will offer a practical strategy for ‘putting it all together’. Our journey of transformation is a collection of small challenges known as ‘life segments’. This chapter will help explain how we progress through each stage of our journey of growth. Hence the title ‘linking life segments’. Before we do this, let’s briefly review the main steps required on a transformative journey. Then it becomes easier to see how these major parts all link together. We will also discuss how we link the smaller daily segments of our daily life.
VISUALISE WHAT YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT.
First, we select our ideal destination. We deliberately decide what we most desire and want to do. We decide this through quiet contemplation and going within. In that first stage we visualize all aspects of this ideal scenario in our imagination. We imagine all that we are passionate about, and the roles we want to play. Our passion for this future role will help draw us forward. Our internal guidance systems and inner voice provide feedback along the way. That's how we choose our path and know that we are on track.
…Can you sense your inner voice guiding you forward?
MAINTAIN THE VIBRATION OF WHAT YOU WANT.
It's important to gently maintain the vibration of what we want. We also hold ‘a knowing’ that this will manifest. We simply maintain a faith or trust that the manifestation process is a done deal. We hold our conviction firmly but very gently at the back of our mind. We simply trust that this result will eventuate as a Universal principle. We do our part by looking for clues in how this will unfold for us. Then we link all these components by taking the appropriate action.
…Do you see how holding trust is so important to the process?
STAY OPEN & WELCOME SYNCHRONISTIC EVENTS.
Any doubt or double guessing will slow or negate this process. Look for the signposts of this manifestation process. These present in the form of synchronistic events and inner nudges. We simply remain open and watch for these opportunities to present. We use synchronistic events to link each segment of our life journey. We then breakthrough to the next segment in our life. These apparent coincidences signal the opportunity to move to the next segment. Our part is to remain open to these possibilities and to ‘tune-in’ to any inner nudges! These hints help us recognize the best opportunity. We anticipate or expect some benefit with every new encounter.
USE YOUR INTUITIVE KNOWING FOR GUIDANCE.
By tuning into our intuition and inner knowing we can get additional guidance. This can help us recognize the opportunity in every encounter. That’s how we achieve maximum success and our final goal!
…Are you becoming more open to the opportunities that arise?
But how do we manage each individual ‘life segment’ along the way? How might this work in practice?
WE CAN ALSO LEARN FROM ROLE MODELS.
If we don’t know where to start, we could choose a role model in that field. A good role model can help inspire us. We might aim to discover how our role models achieved their success. This would help us develop our skills by emulating them. Let’s present a practical analogy to further illustrate this. Let’s imagine we aim to become a top racing car driver, perhaps a formula one champion. Through our deep inner contemplation, we have determined this is our goal. We then instantly have many potential role models!
Most likely we have our favorite formula one driver. We would already be closely following them. That would include reading what others say about them, and maybe even study their autobiography. We would be watching videos of their races, plus aim to see them live in action. We would even try to meet them in person and ask them questions. This approach would likely reinforce our own motivation and training regime.
DISCOVER HOW OTHERS HAVE ACHIEVED SUCCESS.
If we cannot meet with our role model directly, we would not just give up. We might approach another racing team or someone else who has the knowledge we need. We would research how to best to start a journey towards formula one racing. We uncover what startup strategies have worked for other formula one winners. We can start our big journey with baby steps. Our initial goal may be to prove our success in other racing circuits. We might start with motor-cart racing. Then possibly the sedan racing circuit or other racing formula. With our exploration of possible career paths, we intuitively select our preferred option. We then look for the corresponding leads and opportunities that arise.
…What baby steps can you make to pursue your goals?
WELCOME INTUITIVE GUIDANCE & INNER NUDGES.
We welcome any synchronistic opportunities and even anticipate these! We tune in for inner nudges or intuitive guidance as to what is best for us. We might be drawn to visit local racing tracks and other training facilities. Here we might meet useful contacts or learn about opportunities for further training. Further opportunities will evolve by actively engaging in the process and through synchronicity. We must also demonstrate our enthusiasm and a commitment to practice.
REMAIN OPEN TO NEW PATHS & POSSIBILITIES.
Although we can set our preferred destination or goal in life, the exact pathway is not always obvious. We must be very flexible. We must welcome any new opportunity or urge that feels right. But while we wait for this, we don’t just sit still. We continue to practice the basic skills we need until a new synchronistic opportunity appears. Then we start the next segment of training.
…Are you starting to see how linking life segments works?
BE FULLY COMMITTED TO THE JOURNEY.
If we feel deeply about our preferred destiny, then no task will seem too hard. Each challenge can be a thrilling adventure, and not a chore. But we must really believe in what we are doing. It must be a heartfelt decision with deep commitment! The process of manifesting our destiny has an inbuilt safety mechanism. If being a top racing driver is not our life purpose, then our subconscious mind will block our success. We will then need to rethink our goal or dream. We also have limiting beliefs & habits which will stop any frivolous attempts. All this subconscious self-sabotage will undermine any plans which don’t have a firm footing within our inner self. To fully succeed, our goal must relate to our heartfelt inner needs! So, we need to look into that aspect too.
FINE-TUNE YOUR SKILLS ALONG THE WAY.
As we proceed on our life path, our final role will come into clearer focus. We can then fine tune this as we go. For example, we may choose to become an indy 500 racer rather than formula one! Perhaps that racing style now thrills us most. Or our training experience may help us realize that our true passion is instead to be a racing commentator. We can still ‘live the race’ and experience all the emotions. We simply do this from a slightly different role. We just need to be flexible and follow our heart. We have the freedom to choose our final role in life.
…Are you staying flexible and fine tuning as you go?
BE PREPARED TO ADJUST OR MODIFY YOUR ROLE.
We might achieve some racing success but realize that being a race car driver is not exactly what we want. We might for example become frustrated by the technical failings of our machine. Then we might realize our greatest joy would be to engineer or modify these sophisticated machines. So maybe we decide to work in the engineering or support team for formula one drivers. We may realize a greater satisfaction from designing a racing machine or tuning it to perfection. We would then want to find the best driver to highlight the mastery of our technical accomplishment.
PASSION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUTCOME.
Our final role can be a little different from what we originally imagined. But our destination is virtually still the same! In our new role, we can better accommodate our true passion and inner strengths. This same process applies to whatever endeavor we choose. Having the right attitude is essential! In sport this would be termed ‘having a winning attitude'. We discuss this next as another strategy for success.
