Knowing what you want can be life-changing. When I decided to let go of book and writing coaching, I found myself wondering who I was and what I could do to support others.
I did a lot of letting go and soul searching.
There have been many times when I asked the want question and fell into chaos. I knew that this was because I was leaving my comfort zone and entering my discomfort zone.
Honestly, I like the chaos stage, even though it is horrible when you are in it. I like it because when it clears, usually after journaling, a good night’s sleep and a doggy walk – there is calm and clarity.
So let me ask you… What do you want?
In the words of the Spice Girls:

I did this last night when I went to bed. I wrote in my journal, ‘what do I want?’ I wanted to be ready and focused for Monday morning.
My pen was poised as I waited for words to pour forth. Instead, I fell asleep.
But this morning – wow, words flowed – words that came from my heart. I let go and wrote with honesty. No censoring or judging.
It’s interesting asking what we want, isn’t it?
I didn’t once think of all of the things that needed doing in the house or any number of material things.

There is nothing wrong with wanting stuff, but if we can create our desires from a place of love, honour and respect for ourselves and humanity, then, for me, I feel that I can be so much more.
Right now feels like I am ready for another rebirth as I let go of so many things. I working on a new coaching program which feels fully aligned with want I want and how I can support others who have been through similar challenges to me.
In life, there are never-ending cycles of life and death. Reassessing where you are, letting go and starting something new or different are all part of life.
When you do connect with what you want, it’s also a time to revisit your inner wisdom and ask for insights on who you might become if you believed in yourself, wisdom and unlimited potential.
This is a time to embody all that you are and break free from what is not good in your life, and cut loose the patterns that prevent your being and becoming.

So, what do you want? Stop, pause, breathe, ask and scribble in your journal. This is just the beginning. You are getting your unconscious mind ready to create.
So that what you go after is aligned with your best self, your essential essence, true to your heart and is on your soul map to being your best self and enjoying life.
• What do you want?
• Why do you want it?
• Where will it take you?
• What will you get as a result of having this thing?
• What won’t you get?
• How will you get it?
• When do you want it?
• Who will you be when you have what you want?
When you have written, let it settle and reflect later.
Then ask, what is the next aligned step?
