Exploring the Concept of Fulfillment

Most of this year has been about relationship growth, a year in which women stood up en masse to release very old belief systems which left us overly sensitive and disempowered, attributes not akin to the feminine. The year prior we left our old story behind, and in April this year, without knowing it, we banded together to dispel very old universal belief systems stemming from many years prior when the feminine surrendered to the masculine so it could become conscious.

Perhaps inspired by the heavenly stars, we shifted into an innate desire to grow up into our full potential as an adult female in her power, no matter what. Men were then inspired to shift right along with us into their truer nature of strength and adventure, allowing us to ditch what our mothers taught us about being strong to instead embrace and operate through empowerment.

Over the next three years we’ll see men come full circle on this energy and step further into their truth, making available the opportunity for women and men to meet in balance, harmony and co-creation at the level of our innate nature. I see it in my husband who recently shared his readiness for “a work environment with soul.” While he loves what he does, he is ready for his workplace to create, inspire and offer a product that helps others in an altruistic manner. We’ll see more of this yearning in both women and men in the coming years.

So what does all of this have to do with fulfillment? People, more than ever, are bonding together to find support, learning to once again trust and then to operate more and more from their intuition. To do this, we must first feel safe in order to be willing to self-express; only then can we reach fulfillment.

This requires us to find what fuels our passion, acting on it even if at first nobody is interested in what we are doing. We keep “practicing our craft” because what we are really doing is offering our uniqueness to the world. Offering what is unique about us is what transforms our world from certain beliefs to opening up to fewer beliefs or judgments thus allowing everybody to be who they are.

The journey from here to there may appear to lack clarity for most. However, I highly recommend finding answers from within by tuning into your intuition and feeling your way through for the guidance you seek. While it can be as simple as choosing what feels good over the “must do’s,” consulting your clairsentience (clear sensing) for the answers may take a little more trial and error. However, your persistence will create and unfold safety, self-expression and ultimately fulfillment in a very beautiful and powerful way.
