The quest to discover and live our truth is the Hero's Journey, a sacred pilgrimage home to ourselves. It's the high road -- and a rigorous one. We may try to camouflage our fear of the unknown with bravado, workaholism, or apathy. There's another way: following the path of the heart. How do we find it? With a transformational roadmap. I invite you to join me on a mission to remember and reclaim your life purpose.

Step One: Give Yourself Permission to be Passionate

Our resistance is the Refusal of the Call. Change whispers in our ear, and we attempt a high-tech tune-out: call waiting, call forwarding, on hold, voicemail"

We fight change because acceding to it feels like stepping off a cliff into an abyss. Out of touch with our vital, intuitive nature, we panic and crawl safely back into the shopping center mentality. We resign ourselves to buying the leopard print pants because we're afraid to be the leopard.

How do we answer this call to reclaim our connection to what's true for us? We start by giving ourselves permission to be passionate, to dream beyond our self-imposed boundaries.

As we grant ourselves this grace, the still, small voice inside us grows stronger. We advance from being good soldiers, who take orders, to spiritual warriors, who take responsibility. Responsibility is the ability to respond, to say yes, count me in!
