Reaching Higher – by Linda Lang

When I was a kid, I didn’t really think about what I wanted to be when I grew up. Maybe it seemed too far away. Maybe it wasn’t important to me back then. There didn’t seem to be a burning desire inside me… wanting to be a doctor, a lawyer or anything else really.  Even as a teenager, when it came time to decide on something, I chose my college course in visual merchandising because of its artsy feel and mostly, because it had an optional field trip travelling through Europe.

As long as I can remember, I would just take every day as it came, meeting my short term goals, and content at enjoying life the best I could. It seemed to me my mom was that way too.

But when she was younger, she had a dream. She wanted to be a fashion designer and used to design and sew her own clothes. She moved from her rural community to the big city to follow her dream but she was swept off her feet by a handsome young man.  Cupid’s arrow struck.

Plans changed, babies came and dreams got pushed aside.  The closest my mom came to fulfilling her dream was to work as a seamstress in a clothing factory. No wonder she just took every day as it came, aimed at meeting her short term goals, and doing her best to enjoy herself within the parameters of her life.

Things don’t always work out as planned.

My journey to being a healer and spiritual guide seemed like it found me more than it was me having a burning desire. My goal was for my own health and happiness. But then a budding fascination with our inherent power to create and manifest, whether consciously or unconsciously; how we create and how we get stuck, often not able to see our own patterns.

The spiritual side of life called me. It was a natural flowing, evolutionary kind of thing, as if my path was leading me in this direction. Even at that, for the most part, I am happy touching a few hearts and enjoying my own life.

But for the last 3 years, I’ve been getting the same message repeated whenever I have a reading from a psychic, or even hearing echoes in my own intuitive guidance and meditations. The message is REACH HIGHER.  Create bigger goals and go from them!

Of course, our goals and desires are part and parcel of our manifestations. Our thoughts, emotions, actions, even the words that we use help to form our perceptions, our experiences and the magnetic attraction of what’s to come. It makes sense to reach higher.

Consider for a moment that we live in a responsive universe and we are the fuel for our own creations.

Yes, being happy in your life is a worthwhile goal and perhaps if you are like me, you’ll be encouraged to send out greater ripples into the sea of potentials so that your needs, wants, desires, hopes, dreams, and wishes may find fulfillment too.

Why not reach higher?

    Why not indeed, well done Linda on all your achievements, I’ve always said to anyone that asks that never stop bettering yourself, learn more and go study another thing you always wanted to do.
    I believe that for every Heart you touch ( as you say) the magnitude of love that spreads to us all through that process is what Life is all about. so keep touching those hearts you beautiful soul you.
