Ep22 Hey You…Wake Up – Life is Calling
Hello and Welcome to the Way of the Emotional Warrior Podcast. My name is Kai Ehnes and today we will be answering the question of Hey You…Wake Up – Life is calling
You know those moments where things click into place. Everything feels right, smells and sounds and sights are just amazing. You are awake – everything is alive. Most of us can only sustain these experiences for a few moments and then they simply stop. That leaves you wanting those moments, you yearn for them but they are simply gone until the next little glimpse.
What we learn and internalize is that we can only have those moments of being awake a few times in our lives and we resign ourselves to believing just that. It continues that we actually start to have ominous feelings that living awake begets something negative, maybe something awful. Thoughts like: You better not like it too much, you better not think life can be that good. It is so strange that we have been conditioned that living well and happy and abundantly means you are out of balance and that normal is struggling and being entangled to lower emotions. Haven’t you heard: The same old same old or “The struggle is real.”
Enter living the good life. I say we have every right to live right, joyful and abundantly. We have to declare and intentionalize that we want and will to live that way.
Let’s call it living with passion!
Why? Because passion awakes the soul…your soul
The definition of passion is any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, like love or sexual attraction but it also means hatred and anger. I find it highly curious that a passion can be positive, upward or light like love or attraction but it can also aim don on the vibrational scale like hate and anger.
So how do you choose or will to aim your passion toward love, fulfillment and growth?
You start with the feeling you experience in these moments of being alive that I mentioned earlier.
Build on that feeling, leave the therapy and fears on pause. Know that freedom of your soul when you are fully present. That feeling is you and your soul being alive and in harmony. Your soul is awake and you feel more than just happy. You feel soulful joy, true authentic joy of being alive.
This is the foundation of being an emotional warrior. An emotional warrior dares to be alive with passion. A passion for love, compassion, tolerance and abundance.
