It’s Your Call to Respond to Your Calling

There are preliminary steps you need to take before you can follow your calling. This is why many people don’t respond to it. Not because they are afraid of their calling but because they don’t know where to start. They’re overwhelmed by it. Or they don’t have a yearning for it because they don’t have the energy for it.

Your calling and how to respond to it

It’s up to you to prepare yourself to respond to your call

But here’s the thing. No one is getting any younger. No one. Not one person on earth. The truth is, time is short. Your time to respond to your calling is running out. Most of the time you waste time thinking and doing things that are irrelevant or even detrimental to your mental and emotional health.

You avoid taking responsibility or you take on too much. You play the victim or you prey on others. You sell your soul to the highest bidder. You sell out others. They sell you out. You sabotage yourself. You sabotage others. They sabotage you. You damage your soul and deplete your spirit. This is bad for your body. Stress and tension create anxiety and that can lead to depression. It’s a difficult cycle to break.

How can you respond to your calling when you hardly have the energy to drag yourself to work? Or worse, you don’t have the energy to get up in the morning.

You have to prepare yourself so that your mind and emotions are ready to embrace your calling. You have to be ready to prepare yourself. You have to be in a state that is ready to respond.

So how do you prepare for your calling?

One of the first things to do is to clear the air in your relationships. Now is the time to act. Clearing the air in your relationships doesn’t mean that these people will be out of your life. Not unless you want it that way. It’s your call. Clear the air so that you can be free to be who you need to be. Free to respond to your calling.

You need coaxing to dive into your potential. Okay, here’s some not-so-tough love.

If you’re afraid to dive into your potential right now, developing a taste for it might help you to feel more at ease about it. All you need to do is wake up prepared to be amazed every day. Sounds easy but if you’re not prepared to be amazed every day, then you’ll need to ask why and what you need to do to be ready.

Is your mind set for amazement or not? Yes or no? It’s your choice. You decide. You are in control of your mindset. You are in charge. Isn’t that amazing?

Genius at work. Be prepared to be amazed.

One way to develop a sense of readiness is to look for the potential in others. Another way is to look for the potential in your current circumstances. Yet another is to look for the potential in upcoming events. One more way is to look for the potential in objects that you own or could own.

Actually, if you look for the potential in everything and everyone around you, then you can hardly miss it. And when you’ve developed the habit of looking for the potential in everything and everyone around you, then you might find yourself diving into your potential without a second thought. It will feel like second nature to you. This is where you want to be. In a place where recognising the potential in all people, places, events and things comes easy to you.

To answer the “why” of not being prepared? The big scary thing about your own potential is that you can’t see it until you dive in. First. It’s easier to see the potential in other people, places, events and things, but your own potential is not usually visible until after you dive in. Then you can reach it. You will have to take a leap of faith into yourself. So start by looking for the potential in others, then move on to looking for the potential in events, then places and then objects. Be on the lookout. Prepare to be amazed.

Dive Into Your Potential. One More Lecture in Tough Love

It is your duty to be the best you can be. And I’m not talking about your body. I’m referring to your spirit. The atmosphere that surrounds your soul. The energy that you emit. The energy that drains others. The energy that inspires them. Your personal atmosphere. Your ambience.

Dive into your soul.

It is your duty to dive into your potential

It is your purpose, your spiritual responsibility to reach into your potential. Yes, into your potential. You reach into your potential because it is inside you. Not outside. It’s an illusion to think that you will find your potential outside of you. Your soul is in you, not out of you.

So what is your potential? At first, reaching for your potential will mean doing things that you love to do and being things that you love to be. It’s all very nice and a lot of fun. This is entry-level spirituality. Once you’ve been living what you love for a while, the next step is to do and be what you don’t love. What you don’t like. Maybe even what you hate. Yes. Think about it. Makes doing what you love as a path to your potential seem a bit lame don’t you think? And it’s lame because you’re limiting your potential to manifest in one direction only.

Your comfort zone.

Doing and being what you don’t like pushes you beyond your comfort zone. It builds character. It teaches you how to be resilient. Reaching into your potential is not a luxury. It’s a necessity. It’s essential for the evolution of consciousness within the collective soul.

Doing what you hate as a path to your potential? Now that’s a challenge to strengthen your spirit. Are you ready for it? You’ll be doing it for humanity.

Have you got the guts to do what you don’t love? Another lecture in tough love

Do you have the guts to live a life with soul? It’s easy to follow your heart and do what you love. But do you have the guts to do what you don’t love?

Have you got the guts to be the bad cop? Have you got the guts to be unpopular? Have you got the guts to be invisible? Do you have the guts to do what others don’t or won’t or can’t? Day after day, week after week, and maybe even year after year?

Don’t fall into the trap of believing that if or when you have to do what you don’t love that you’ve been overcome by a dark night of the soul. No. You are not in a dark night. You’re not ready. You’re spiritual bypassing. You’re trapped in a cycle of perpetual positivity. Casting shadows instead of owning them.  Stop. Do you really think that a life with soul will let you live the high life for the rest of your life? No. A soulful life is a balanced life. While spiritual bypassing may be fine for zombies, a life without ups and downs signals death for those with a soul.

A life with soul is a balanced life

Are you busy casting shadows instead of owning them?


Does your life have soul? Will you dare to go where others dare not? It’s easier to keep bypassing. It’s safe. It’s secure. It’s expected. But it’s lopsided. And overbearing.

Have You Got What It Takes? A Lecture In Tough Love

Have you got what it takes to do what you really want? If you really wanted what you say you want then you would do what it takes to make it happen. Yes. You would. But you don’t. So your lack of action demonstrates your real desire, which is to do nothing, to maintain the status quo. You would rather spend your time and energy yearning and pining and hoping and wishing and whining rather than actually doing what you need to do to bring your real dream to fruition.

Have you got what it takes to do what you say you want?

Tell someone who cares about your excuses. You have three chances to repeat the same old story.

When your desire to achieve your dream outweighs your desire for life to remain the same then you will have what you want. You either want it or you don’t. Yes or no. The space in between yes and no is maybe or maybe not. You know where you are. You know what you need to do. So do it. Now. Tell someone who cares about your excuses. You have three chances to repeat the same old story.




After that, you may as well turn into a zombie because everyone else has zoned out of your story.

Tell yourself about your successes. Tell yourself how you did it. Tell yourself how well you it worked for you. Wouldn’t you rather hear more about your triumphs and less about your defeats? Only other vampires have the time or energy for vampire behaviour.

Don’t waste your resources. Don’t waste your time, energy, space and money chasing people, places and things that you don’t really want. Stop yearning like a lovesick damsel. It’s pretentious and draining. Think hard about what you really and truly want. Then do what you need to do to get it. If you can’t, then maybe you need to forget it.

Or rethink it.

There are two types of power you can use to fuel your desires. You have extrinsic power and intrinsic power available. All you need to do is tap into it.

Extrinsic Power

Archetypes represent external power. You can tap into this power when you know the strengths and weaknesses of your personal archetypes. Your twelve archetypes are your external resource of power.

Intrinsic Power

Chakras represent internal power. You can tap into this power when you know how to balance your overactive and underactive chakras. Your seven chakras are your internal resource of power.

If you believe you can’t be powerful then you need to recalibrate your self-belief so that it aligns with your powerful self instead of your pitiful self. Thoughts are powerful. You know this. Beliefs are powerful. Behaviour is even more powerful. Your beliefs and your thoughts drive your behaviour. Your behaviour drives your thoughts and beliefs. Change your beliefs to change your thinking to change your behaviour. Change your behaviour to change your thinking to change your beliefs. When you believe you are powerful, you will be, and then you will have what you want.

Use the Chakra Model to Develop Discernment and Visionary Ability

Some individuals are born with reliable gut instincts; others are highly sensitive or possess amazingly accurate intuition, while many individuals have to master the art of sound judgement in order to survive and thrive in the world. If you know how to make sound judgments then you can be discerning. Discernment is the ability to develop and fine tune your visionary and intuitive abilities through the trials, errors and pitfalls of life. This is where failure is useful but not very pleasant. It offers incredibly accurate feedback about what not to do next time.

A Question of Balance - Colour Energy and Healing with Chakras

When you understand the connection between your mind, emotions and body then your path to life balance and spiritual fulfilment becomes clear.

Discernment comes from a balance of intellectual reasoning combined with your intuition and gut instincts. Both the left and right brains are activated when you are discerning, but you can also engage more of yourself than just your brain in this process. You can use the chakras as tools to help you develop your capacity to be more discerning. Discernment is your ability to perceive what is true, rather than being seduced by illusions and false impressions. It is your ability to perceive wisdom from manipulation.

When you are uncertain or suspicious about a person or a situation, then how do you discern truth from illusion? What do you need to look for? Imagine you are on a search for guidance and direction, say from a spiritual healer or teacher. How do you know a genuine healer? How do you recognize a good teacher when you see one? When the situation calls for discernment, there are seven chakra benchmarks to look for that will help you to assess their worth. These benchmarks can also be applied when you need to discern the quality or truth of new information being presented to you. Always follow what feels right and true for you at the time.

  1. Focus on your first chakra at the base of your spine. This is your centre of earthly survival power. Is the information, teacher or healer consistent, positive and helpful? Is the information, healer or teacher down-to-earth or vague and ungrounded?
  2. Focus on your second chakra below your navel. This is your centre of relationship power. Does the information, teacher or healer have healthy boundaries? Are you encouraged to be independent, empowered and whole? Or are you being asked to conform with, or depend on, the healer, the information or the teaching?
  3. Focus on the third chakra at your solar plexus. This is the centre of your instinctive power. Does your gut register this information, teacher or healer as congruent? Is this a person of integrity?
  4. Focus on your fourth chakra at the heart. This is where your emotional power resides. Does the information, the teacher or healer uplift you? Is your heart stirred with a sense of truth?
  5. Focus on the fifth chakra at the throat. This is your centre of free will. Are you being asked to surrender your power to choose for yourself? Are you accepting the information presented without question?
  6. Focus on your sixth chakra in the middle of your brow. This is your intellectual power. Does the information broaden your awareness and understanding of yourself? If the information, teacher or healer is personally confronting, does it lead you to face reality?
  7. Focus on the seventh chakra at the crown of your head. This is your centre of spiritual power. Does the information, teacher or healer provide you with a path for healing or growth, or does it undermine you?

If you believe all that you are told, shown or read without question or research, then you are susceptible to victimisation. You may be physically, emotionally, mentally and even psychically vulnerable and open to manipulation.

By asking these questions with the help of your chakras, you can tap into the infinite source of your own inner wisdom. From there you will strengthen your ability to discern truth from illusion. Discernment helps you to face your fears. It will hold you in good stead when you are surrounded by confusion and indecision. You are meant to be a good judge of character and situations. Discernment helps you to face the realities of life. It outwits many disappointments and falsehoods.
