Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
In order to live the life you were designed to live , it’s critical to understand yourself at the deepest level.
Recently I read a passage by the author Pamela Field in her book: A Woman Who Dreams Herself that: “We have two lives that run parallel with each other: the life we’ve inherited, and the life our Higher Self (a.k.a. our soul) has planned for us. And, at any moment, we can decide to change tracks.”
Have you ever thought of it that way? That there is the life that was passed onto you without any conscious choice – and then there is the life that is imbedded deep within your soul – like a blueprint – that has the plans on where YOU are meant to go and what you’re meant to do.
As I mentioned in the previous article: Carried Shame and Worthiness, oftentimes we don’t realize that if you’re stuck, or feeling a certain way about yourself, or doubting your abilities, etc. – it’s oftentimes a result of you holding onto someone else’s “stuff” and you holding onto shame that wasn’t yours to begin with.
I see this so often in the work that I do – where folks describe to me symptoms of feeling off-track, that something is missing, that they know there is something more for them to do and express – yet they face a hold-back that they can’t put their finger on.
The hold-back that most of us feel from time-to-time is either
lack of clarity on what steps to be taking next, or seeing what it is that you yearn to do, but
fearing and doubting that you have the capability to actually do it!
Yet, the truth is: there is a blueprint within your soul that has all the instructions, plans, insight, confidence and courage that you need to move forward and live the life that you were designed to live.
And, the key to living the life you were designed to live is learning to go about receiving answers and insight on which direction to head from the inside. This approach may seem counter intuitive to how most of us were taught on how-to gain clarity or advice – but it’s truly the only way to live authentically and to live in integrity with your own soul’s path.
If you’re ready to start journeying within and gaining some more clarity on where your soul yearns for to go – and who you’re destined to become – check-out the Worthy Work below for some guidance on how-to get started.

To decipher between the life you inherited and the life your True Self has designed you to live – give these questions some thought:
Where do I feel off-track – as if intuitively I know that I’m living someone else’s life and there is more for me to do and to express?
What decisions have I made in my life that now in looking back, I can see were based on beliefs that I inherited vs. my own values and opinion?
Who and what am I afraid to lose if I begin to even contemplate a different life for myself?
These questions are contemplative and are meant to be journaled around and given lots of thought.
Enjoy the process of self-discovery and for asking your soul for advice. I promise it won’t steer you wrong – it will only steer you to right where you need to be.
