Are You Ready To Live An Extraordinary Life?

 

Art Extraordinary Life Stamp Set of 5: WAy 17 of Nature ALchemy Process (12-16)

 

Piercing The Realm of GLamour

Some of us want more ... a life that goes beyond the ordinary reality which most of us live in everyday. Beyond being happy or feeling fulfilled, we long to experience something larger than ourselves ... and to become part of the larger play* of the universe.

But living in two worlds at the same time can be tricky. The transcendent has a sense of humor and a different way of operating .. of being. So while an extraordinary life is filled with elements which inspire us and make life worth living .. it can also challenge our assumptions of reality, who we are and how the world really works.

Going Under ...

Like going underground at Disneyland and seeing how all the magic is made ... we have to be ready for what we will see, hear, taste, smell, sense, and experience. And be able to bring what we learned back with us ... to help see with new eyes all the magic around us ... and to help make the world a bit more magical.

Invisible Hands

When invisible hands start opening doors for you ... you begin to live an extraordinary life. It is a life filled with experiences beyond your dreams. Events begin to unfold which allow you to discover who you really are and the power that resides inside of you. SIgns guide your steps and you start to live within the flow of the universe ... a flow that can seem scary because of how fast things unfold and of the choices only intuition can help you select.

Unusual coincidences start to happen so regularly, they stop being strange and become commonplace and an accepted part of your life. Synchronicities also increase to a level others would find strange, but they become a typical part of your everyday existence.

Living In Two Worlds

The rewards for living an extraordinary life are numerous ... some call it a pearl {of wisdom} beyond price. However, to afford that life and have the time to enjoy it, we need to find the right livelihood .. and lifestyle.

Extraordinary people start showing up in your life at just the right time. And your life becomes filled with extraordinary events, experiences, abilities, moments and relationships.

These bring challenges, like embracing the exquisite moments of your life and facing the deepest fears ...

Butr* perhaps the fear yo uhave* to start with ... is a fear of change.

An Extraordinary Life Goal Changes Your Life

Because a life goal is the target you aim at, it becomes the mark you use to measure how well you are living a successful life. Money isn't everything ... when you aim at creating and living an extraordinary life.

Instead, it becomes the means for achieving (aka paying for) living an extraordinary life. Think about it. All the money in the world would be useless unless you could spend it. Having a vault on the Moon filled with money does you no good. Money becomes a tool ... one you can use to manifest your dreams.

But if you dream of an extraordinary life, what exactly is it? The* answer starts with understanding ...

What An Extraordinary Life Is Not

It is not a life doing what your parents, boss, teachers or anyone else tells you to do. It is not a recycling of someone else's ideas of the perfect life for you. Nor is it what your culture, generation, or society says you should aspire to.

It also is not defined by what most people fantasize about doing if they win the lottery, inherit a lot of money, or suddenly strike it rich. And it is definitely not how you would spend your life if you took the day off and played hookie for the rest of your life.

An Extraordinary Life Is ...

... a life that takes your breath away. A life so perfect for you that you could not imagine a better one.

A life that makes you feel truly alive for the first time in your life. A life that beckons you awake in the morning and gets you excited to start your day and keeps you up at night giggling, pinching yourself to make sure it is not just a dream.

Your extraordinary life inspires you to become who you dream of being inside. It fuels and supports you being at your best, living in the moment, and evolving beyond your wildest imaginings.

What It Feels Like

When you are living your extraordinary life, you feel deep inside you are on the right path -- that you are exactly where you should be and you are doing what you were always meant to be doing. Certainty replaces doubt. And those "guiding hands" Joseph Campbell talked about are at work in every area of your life. Doors open, mishaps become happy accidents and you are pulled along by the current of your life for a ride that is truly better, and far beyond, your dreams.

Awesome, gnarly, cool, smokin', slammin' ... these are all ways to describe what an extraordinary life is like. But what is truly amazing is that an extraordinary life is a life you truly love ... not just settle for. And to make it a reality takes work. Fun, exciting, challenging, work ... work you love ... but nevertheless hard work ... recognizing and following the signs, taking each step with courage and from a strong foundation.

And no one but you knows what yours is. No one else but you knows what takes your breath away, makes your heart start beating like an African drum, or zings you with energy that can transport you halfway across a room before you realize you were in motion. No one else has the inside track on you and your most heartfelt dreams and longings.

And so now you know what living an extraordinary life is. And why it takes hard work to first define it, and to then take that definition and use it to transform your everyday, ordinary (some would say ho hum) life into an extraordinary one ... where there are still bills to be paid, meals to be cooked and bedtime stories to be read.

Will You Recognize IT When You See IT?

You will know when you have found your extraordinary life, because it is a life that energizes you to make it real. It is a life that lets you find, follow and live your bliss in both your life and your work. And that work, in the long run, pays you handsomely enough to make your dreams come true in the real world.

So now that you have a better idea of what an extraordinary life looks and feels like, are you curious about how you can figure out, step by step, what yours is?

Ten Steps: How To Create An Extraordinary Life

 

Extraordinary Life Challenges

Several challenges pop up when you start living an extraordinary life. Two of the most important are being able to face your biggest fears amd embrace the exquiste moments of your life.

Our Deepest Fear Is That We Are
Powerful Beyond Measure

Sephirah 4: Unmeasureable Gifts

We often fear the unknown, not sure what to be afraid of ... how to ensure our survival and well being. But when we start to confront the transcendent, we are faced with ...

 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

 

Alchemical Process 15 - Art Postage Stamp  Alchemical Process 16 - Art Postage Stamp

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

- Marianne Williamson
(quoted by Nelson Mandela)

 

 

Embrace the Exquisite Moments of Your Life

 

Summer weather, like being in love, is a philosopher's stone which turns our ordinary days to gold. But not the whole day ... For it is never the whole day, never all our life which is transformed in any happiness, but only the exquisite moments. - Nan Fairbrother

 

Living An Extraordinary Life One Moment at a Time

One of the challenges of living an extraordinary life is that life becomes composed of moments ... and you have to re-orient your thinking to embrace it. Dipping your toe into the eternal life stream means you have to let the river flow ... rather than try to hold onto it.

Trying to hold on to the eternal is not an easy thing to do ... it slips through your fingers like quicksilver. Try to grasp it with your thoughts and it becomes wisps of smoke ... a morning fog that disappears with the sunlight of focused consciousness.

So, you want to treat it like a bird's song ... something that comes ... and is experienced without the need to analyze it, dissect it or make a big deal of it. You may be the only one who hears the music, who adds it to your day like a gift tossed into the stands of life as the crowds pass on by ... rushing to make the morning commute.
