Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ~ Steve Jobs, Co-founder of Apple
Steve Jobs is one of the greatest examples of someone attuned to their purpose. He knew what was important to him. He made tough decisions, that sometimes disappointed people in his life. He broke barrier after barrier of what people thought was impossible.
And by the end of his life? Steve Jobs dramatically improved the quality of life for people all over the world. Computers have become part of almost every aspect of human life, and Jobs’ elegant, playful and usable design brings gentleness and goodness through our interactions with all computers. (PC copied many of the Apple’s usability ideas ~ they were good ideas!)
So what does it take to get *that* deeply connected with your purpose? The health of your Solar Plexus Chakra is fundamentally tied to the answer.
The Solar Plexus is the seat of your will. With a healthy Solar Plexus Chakra you will be deeply connected with your personal values, and this empowers you to think decisively and take action! We call it will power.
Today is the Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year. The day with the greatest exposure to the light of the sun.
Sunlight carries prana, or Life Force Energy. The Solar Plexus is the energy centre in our body that specifically receives prana. It receives prana and disperses that Life Force Energy throughout the body, energizing your entire system.
Therefore today is the pinnacle day to consciously connect with your Solar Plexus and open yourself to receiving the gift of prana that is available today.
The Solar Plexus is located below your rib cage and above your belly button. Gently meditating on this area today, bringing attention, curiosity and love can yield surprising results. Be open to it!
Imagine deeply listening to your truth – to what is important to you. Imagine all the outside voices that lead you away from your truth – imagine these voices fading away into the background so that your truth can beat like a steady heartbeat. Bah bum…. bah bum… bah bum…
Imagine your body filling with warm sunlight energy, filling all those dark empty unattended spaces within you. Imagine filling up with love and gentleness and goodness today. Imagine the *feeling* in your body that your deepest, most heartfelt dreams are possible.
All of this is available! And this one simply meditation today can transform your life. I don’t know how to emphasize this strongly enough: When you are connected with your truth in a solid, grounded and human way, you can move mountains.
Steve Jobs is a beautiful example of this!
