“I am a multifaceted being and my dominant intent for being is for the experience of my freedom, for the expression of my growth, and for the receiving of my joy.”
People often ask me about happiness, and how to have more of it in their lives. Invariably, the people who are asking me will tell me in the next breath that they don’t know what makes them happy, and that they don’t have any interests. Then they’ll tell me they are too busy anyway…
Humans are richly complex. Few of us were born to be single-minded in our pursuit of anything. In fact, when I look at your auric field, and I see the diverse colours within it, I already know some of what will make you happy – because we are always happiest when we honour our true nature.
Your soul is a kaleidescope of colour, and you can create endless variations of yourself using nothing more than a sense of awareness and natural curiosity.
Honouring the different aspects of who we are rounds us out as people, and makes our lives feel more satisfying. It’s fine to have one main ‘thing’ – an interest, a vocation, a passion. But don’t forget to nurture those other sides of you as well.
You might be a lawyer who is passionate about human rights. But in a corner of your life save some time for jazz music, collecting china owls and travelling to historic locations to photograph architecture.
You might be a devoted parent, who also finds time to make natural soaps, tend a garden and be a member of the local choir.
You could be a bank teller, whose weekends are devoted to scuba-diving adventures and colossal family barbeque get-togethers.
You might collect stamps or rare books, dance the tango, dabble in watercolours, learn the guitar or Italian, be a mad amateur interior decorator or family historian, or enjoy breeding budgerigars.
It doesn’t matter what you do – it just matters that you LIVE, that you spend some time amassing experiences, sharing with others, taking time on your own, making time for relationships and doing things that get you out of the rut of same-same.
You were not born to be a robot. You are multi-faceted, with a unique combination of interests and talents. The more you allow some colour into your life, the happier and more content you will become.
You are not one figure on the colour wheel below. No! You are a little bit Garfield, a little bit Elmo, a dash of Peter Pan and a splash of Lisa Simpson.
It’s up to you which aspect you explore in any moment, or if you choose to be part Tweetie and part Dorothy the Dinosaur at the same time.
If you could see yourself the way that I see you, you’d know that you are already interesting, vibrant and magically beautiful.
Life is not meant to be all work, grind and stress. It is not meant to be colourless and devoid of fun.
My wish for you today is that you allow yourself the opportunity to spend time on things that matter or that interest you, and embrace the possibilities of an expanded life.
Much love to you, Nicole xx
