Divine Career: Do you love what you do?
Do you love what you do? Does it make you feel fulfilled at the end of the day when you go home? Do you feel that you are Divinely Guided to do what you currently do? Have you asked yourself these questions?
If not that’s ok, maybe now is the time. This does not mean that you have to quit what you are doing this minute & sit in meditation until you get the answer of what your Divine Career is. Although there are some people that have done that & it has worked for them.
Any change can be frightening at first at least that’s what the ego would like us to believe. Often altering the way we look at things, especially change can make the transition easier, sometimes effortless. When we see ourselves in a state that we no longer wish to be in for example a job that is unrewarding & unfulfilling we can acknowledge those thoughts & feelings & start to identify what we truly want to do.
Here is an exercise.
Take a note pad and put a line down the middle making two columns on it. On the left side write Current job pros and on the right write Current Job Cons. Now without judging or thinking too long on each one just write down the first thing that comes to mind uncensored, unedited. You may find that as you write something on one side something will pop in your head to put on the other side. Go ahead & go back and forth as needed.
Look at your paper is one side fuller than the other? Reread what you wrote. Is there something(s) that you wish to add? Do so until you feel that you are finished. As you look at the pros did you put that you are compensated in some way? It might not be how or in the amount you would like but you still are. Is that the main reason why you are at this job?
If so I want you to write down little things those that you might not have thought about before that make your life/day easier at that job such as my coworker is always helpful, or my commute is only 10 minutes. You can put these positives on an index card (the same with affirmations) & you can pull them out & look at them whenever you need a reminder to shift your focus.
If you start to put your focus & attention on these little things while you are working instead of what you do not enjoy you will find that your day will get easier & easier.
As you have started to work on this mind set releasing that, which is undesirable, you can bring your focus on what you would like to see different in your work. Ready for an entire overhaul? Ready to move into something different? Now you are ready to look at what is your Divine Purpose.
