Have you ever been given advice to follow your passion and you found yourself thinking, “Yeah right! Easier said than done.” You’ve got bills to pay, mouths to feed, a job to keep (that you hate) – the list goes on. How might you put aside the time to even find, let alone follow your passion?
As frivolous and unrealistic as this may sound, acting on passion may be the critical step needed to not only align with your life purpose but also connect to what is referred to as the Higher Self.
In my recent interview with Daryl Anka he discussed the importance of following one’s passion in life. Anka is well known for his channeling of the extraterrestrial entity Bashar and has been sharing his messages with millions around the world for years.
Anka explained that our physical bodies are guided by a non-physical higher mind, which communicates with us through energy. This energy is translated by our physical bodies as passion, excitement, creativity, and love. By acting on situations that contain more excitement than any other, we are following the guidance of our higher mind.
According to Anka, the key to finding one’s passion is to look at all the options available and pick the one that has slightly more attractiveness or excitement attached to it. This could be something as simple as taking a walk, having lunch, talking to a friend, or watching a movie. By taking action on these options, simple as they may seem, we set up a dialogue with our higher mind, which will send us more opportunities to act on our passion through synchronicity.
Anka emphasized that acting on one’s passion doesn’t necessarily mean jumping up and down and running around with one’s hair on fire. It could be something as basic as taking a small step toward a goal. If more than one option seems equally exciting, flipping a coin could help determine which one is more attractive.
Anka’s message of following one’s passion has been consistent throughout his channeling of Bashar. He believes that by acting on our passions, we can create a dialogue with our higher mind and live a more fulfilling life.
Passion in Action!
Bashar has famously shared a story of a young woman – we’ll call her Lisa, a friend of Darryl’s, who had a dream of traveling around the world. There was just one problem. She had no money.
Here’s how acting on her passion brought her dream to life…
Lisa, a photographer had been passionate about the idea of taking photographs of the sacred sites around the world, but she didn’t have a dime. Despite her current circumstances, she did not let that deter her from finding a way to make her dream a reality.
She decided to approach a major airline and ask them to fly her around the world for free, though she knew that any kind of request like that would require a fair and equal exchange. She went to the airline and said, “I would like to ask you to fly me around the world for free to take pictures – beautiful pictures! Look, here are some of the pictures I’ve already taken. Aren’t they gorgeous?” she asked. The airline responded, “Yes, indeed they are.” She reiterated her desire for them to fly her around the world for free to take photographs of the many gorgeous sacred sites, but in exchange, she would allow the airline to use the images in their brochures to attract tourists to the airline.
As a result, not only did they fly her everywhere for free, but they put her up in the best hotels, and fed her the best food, she lived like a queen, didn’t spend a dime, and actually made a profit by doing so.
This, Bashar says, is passion in action. By using your imagination and a little ingenuity, not only can you manifest your dream, you can and often will exceed the expectations you set out to achieve.
The Concept of Passion
According to Bashar, passion may be the single most critical factor in following one’s path in life. He believes that every individual has a higher mind that guides them through life, communicating through energy. The higher mind sends messages in the form of excitement, creativity, and an unrelenting desire that is almost impossible to ignore. When individuals act on situations that contain more excitement than any other, they are following the guidance of their higher mind, and in turn, the higher mind will be primed to communicate with the personality on a frequent basis.
When determining what passion you might act on at any given time, It’s about looking at all the options available and picking the one that has even slightly more attractiveness or excitement attached to it. Individuals can take simple actions, such as taking a walk, having lunch, talking to a friend, or watching a movie, to get the ball rolling.
Though these small acts of passion might seem as though they are inconsequential to crafting a larger or more powerful life path and purpose, Bashar says that what you are doing is creating a language that the higher mind understands – sending a signal to that part of yourself that you are meant to live your life with purpose by acting on your passion, whether large or small.
As this becomes part of your energetic blueprint, Universe is then more primed to deliver larger pursuits that are also born out of passion. Perhaps your passion is to become a healer, write a book or travel the world. Because you have taken action steps on executing smaller acts of passion, you have created an energetic signal and essentially have wired yourself for larger life experiences that carry that same frequency.
Green Light vs. Red Light Synchronicity
The principle of synchronicity works through what Bashar refers to as green light and red light synchronicity. Green light synchronicity refers to the opportunities that a person is able to act on, while red light synchronicity is still representative of their passion, but it is telling them to wait or take a different path.
If individuals act on their passion, even in small ways, the higher mind will send more opportunities to act on it through synchronicity. The principle of synchronicity is the organizing and guiding principle in life, connecting everything. If individuals act on something that isn’t necessarily the best path for them, synchronicity will create circumstances to turn them around to the path that is correct for them.
Overall, following our passion is not only essential to our growth and well-being, it is perhaps the single most important way to align with the higher mind and it serves as a practical and straightforward approach that we can all apply in our lives right now.
