Did you know that your desires and longings are calls from your future self,
calling you forward, reminding you of who you truly are? I remember when I first heard this last year it felt like time stood still. This was a very different take on desire.
In the family I grew up in desire was seen at best as being irrelevant, and at worst it was seen as something sinful that needed to be shut down or pushed away. This new view of desire that saw it as important information that needs to be noted and acted on, and as something that was calling us forward, was…… well it was radical.
I needed to know more………… So I decided to do some further reach on desire, and this revealed even more amazing insights.
Mark Epstein, for example, author of “Open to Desire” talks about desire being a teacher and if “we immerse ourselves in it without guilt, shame or clinging, it can show us something special about our minds that allows us to embrace life fully”. He makes it clear that desire is the key to deepening intimacy with ourselves, each other, and our world.
Abraham Hicks, author of books like “Ask and It is Given” and “The Astonishing Power of Emotions” calls our longings “rockets of desire”. I love this image, of being bombarded by rockets of desire.
The whole purpose of this bombardment of desire is calling us to embrace life and to become more fully who we truly are at our very core.
These views of desire feel liberating and energising to me and what I have found is that over time they allow you to more deeply trust your own being.
So what are you longing for?
My hope for you and for all women, is that we may you hear the call of our desires and have the courage to act on them. The world needs more women filled with desire and the passion to make the world a better place for all.
with deep desire for a better and fair world
