Choosing a Profession?

Embrace your desires first.

You are always inspired from the events of your life, and when you allow yourself to follow the flow of those inspired ideas, your potential for a joyous experience is much greater than if you were to select your career based on other reasons that people use to justify their choices, such as family tradition or income potential. 

It is not surprising that so many have a difficult time deciding what they will do for the rest of their lives, because you are multifaceted Beings and your dominant intent is to enjoy your absolute basis of freedom and, in your quest for joyful experiences, to experience expansion and growth. In other words, without a real perception of freedom, you will never be joyful; and without joy, you cannot experience true expansion. So, childish as it may seem to many, it is natural that your life inspires your next adventure and your next and your next.

We encourage you to decide, as early in life as possible, that your dominant intent and reason for existence is to live happily ever after. That would be a very good career choice: to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a “career” of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do “for a living” makes you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.

You can become very good at feeling good under all conditions, but when you become good at reaching for your vibrational balance first—and then attract circumstances and events to yourself from that happy place—your potential for sustained happiness is much greater.
