This is your wake-up call
Founder of The Mindful Moment, Dr. Alexandra Domelle shares the seven signs that you are ready to awaken and Live Your Best Life Now.
"We are the Universe itself, expanding, awakening, experiencing All That Is" - Alexandra Domelle
In my first blog post, I invited you to live an inspired life, to live your best life starting now.
The first step of this journey is already underway for many of you. It began the moment you started asking questions such as:
Is there more to life?
It continued when you woke up in the middle of the night wondering:
Is this all there is?
And every time, just when you seemed to have the answer, it somehow slid through your grasp, ever slippery and elusive.
These moments are your wakeup-call.
The call to awaken. The call to realise that life is not lived in the past, nor in the future.
Life is happening, right here, right now. #PresentMomentReminder
Question is, are you present here or lost in some fantasy?
Here are seven signs that you are ready to wake up and start living your best life now:
1. You've had enough of suffering.
You’ve reached a point in your life when you say, “I don’t want to suffer anymore. I don't want to keep carrying this emotional baggage from the past. I don't want to keep reliving the worst moments of my life. I want to be happy. I deserve to live a happy, fulfilling life." #NoMorePain
2. You've experienced a significant event that rocked your core.
Something has happened, either within you, (a self-realisation, if you like), or there has been an external event (birth, death, divorce, turning 40, it can be anything) that has pushed you out of your comfort zone and left you questioning your place and purpose in the world. Your life’s foundations have been challenged and the illusions, shattered. #TimeForChange
3. You no longer care what others will think.
You’ve reached the point where others’ opinions no longer matter. And before, they used to. A lot. You've done so many things in your life just to please others. But not anymore. You trust yourself enough to know that you are ready to make changes, to discover and be who you really are. #YourAuthenticSelf
4. You are ready to surrender.
You've been holding onto everything and everyone so tightly out of fear. Fear of not being loved. Fear of not being accepted. Fear of not been seen. You've finally realised that the more you have clung to things and people, the less happy you have been. And in this clinging and holding on, you've left no room for new things to come in. Now, you are ready to let go of everything that no longer serves you, to ditch those toxic relationships, those addictions, those things that are holding you back. You are ready to move forward. #WelcomeInTheNew
5. You are not afraid anymore.
You no longer fear the unknown; rather, you welcome the chance to begin anew. Fear is paralysing, irrational and keeps us from expressing our authentic selves. The moment we acknowledge our fears and let them go is the moment of ultimate freedom. #FearlessYou
6. You can no longer ignore your inner voice.
You've spent long enough ignoring your inner voice, your inner calling, drowning it out whatever way you could - food, drink, drugs, sex, screens - it doesn't matter. Despite all the stifling, that sense of unease, or discontentment has only grown, pushing you to acknowledge its presence and to listen. To really listen. That inner voice, whether you call it your soul, your spirit or something other just won’t take “no” for an answer anymore, as it pushes you to choose a better path. #SoulSpeak
7. You are committed to this new path.
You've made the decision and there is no turning back. Your resolve is absolute. You are fully committed to honouring your authentic self. You have finally realised that life is happening right now and your chance to be happier more content and at ease is here, right in front of you. You may not have all the answers as to how the transformation will occur, of who will guide you on this journey and of what you will discover in the process. But what you do know is what you want. You know what you value. You know what matters most. Regardless of this path unfolds, whatever the process, you are ready. #BringItOn
Every one of these signs offer you the chance to awaken to start living your best life now.
They are signals from your body, mind and spirit that you have had enough.
In these moments, there still lies a choice. You can choose to ignore this wake-up call and go back to sleep.
Or you can choose to heed it, knowing that once you commit to waking up, nothing will ever be the same again. It takes courage, a strong, unyielding belief that you deserve happiness, and the willingness to put yourself out there and get the support you need.
So the question is:
What will you choose?
Will you choose to keep sleeping, unconsciously going through the motions, waiting for that one day, that someday in the future when you finally have everything of which you've ever dreamed?
Will you wait until then to start living life to the fullest?
Or will you choose to awaken and enjoy what you have right here, right now?
Will you live your best life now? #TheMindfulMoment
