Lynn Morgan Carpenter: When you know that there is more calling for you in your life, there's a distinct feeling behind it. And this is what I want to talk about and focus on this week. So yes, when you know that there's more for your life than what you're currently experiencing, you will internally feel it because it will be an unrest that's inside. It will feel as if it's an unsettled feeling that at times can be numbed by whatever choice we choose to numb it with. It can be pushed away into the closet or swept under the carpet, and that lasts for a while. Numbing it lasts for a while. But it eventually comes back over and over and will speak to you. And if you can relate to what I'm speaking of and talking about, this is for you and you are meant to hear this message. So I know that you came here for a very specific reason, and that reason has meaning and purpose. And I look at this as your soul's calling. And the thing is, is that when your soul has a calling, you will be able to identify it and it is a journey that you are on. It is a journey. And what was, once your soul's calling very much can shift and expand and evolve as your soul evolves. And this is the work of our lives that I know. This is why I'm dedicating a whole book because this has been the journey of my life and this is what I am writing about. And I wanna bring some of that to you right here, right now, because your soul's calling, whatever it's calling for you to do today, is the action. Is the action that I want to inspire you, encourage you, and motivate you to take action on and move forward with it. So here's the thing. What happens is that we have internal desire to reach towards something, but often we can get into our own way. We get in our own way. And it can be through thoughts that we have. It can be through voices of other people, it can be through concerns of judgment from others. And I bring this to light because truly if you are able just to identify like, oh, okay, oh, I'm becoming concerned about other people's judgments. Oh, okay, I'm hearing my parents' voice in my head right now and what they would think about this. Oh, I am thinking about what I was told in elementary school in the classroom by my teacher, and I now have this belief that I'm not capable of doing this. I share this with you because I'm gonna tell you this has been a journey I have been on and I've experienced many different forms of that, of having those limitations inside thinking that, oh, I'm feeling a desire for this. I'm, I have a, like a, a pull for this. But I wasn't equipped, I wasn't given the equipment in this lifetime to go for that or to achieve that. I believed that at one time. And what I have been able to personally witness in my life is that it was all bull crap. It was not the truth because my life has taken the life of its own, not through me just hanging out. It's by me intentionally doing the work to change that programming inside. So this is why, yes, as I've mentioned here before, I'm a huge lover of personal development, of professional development and spiritual development because all three of those things intentionally working on those aspects of our lives has a direct effect on our soul and has an effect on our humanness, allowing us to expand and evolve and to fulfill the calling that we came here for. And so this week I want to encourage you, number one, if you can identify with what I'm sharing, and this isn't just about professional calling, this can depend on where you are, what age and stage you are in life, and what is calling for you, what is calling for your attention. It might be to expand your family. It might be a career motivation and expansion. It could be for your health, it could be for travel, it could be endless. It, you get to identify it. And there is no right or wrong. It's whatever your calling is in this moment in time of where you are in your life. And I am here just to encourage you to number one, believe in it. Because if you feel that message, you hear the message internally, it's coming from a very beautiful source. And when you take action on it, what's going to happen is that the universe steps in the energy of the universe to support you. But at times we have to identify what's hanging me up, what's getting in my way. And that is for you to figure out because until that's figured out, you'll continue to be stuck. And you're not meant to be stuck. I know this to be true. And when you are able to identify what's holding you back, it then gives you the power to disengage from it. And then you'll be released from it and you can move forward. You can take action and you can start to feel the calling of your life being nurtured and honored. And then it will become a reality and come to fruition for you to enjoy right here, right now in this lifetime because it is for you to enjoy nobody else. Only you.
