Passion Only?

One of the definitions of the word “passion” is: “intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction.” I can get into this definition and have had this sensation many times in my life. I have, in the past, had passionate feelings about issues in the world, about my own life, about other people, etc. I can definitely identify with this word. On a side note, I grew up in an Italian/American household where we got passionate about LOTS OF THINGS!

However, is it important to have “only passion” about the things we wish to manifest? I think so. This is a feeling Universe and if we do not have a feeling of conviction and a strong energy surrounding what we are putting out into the world, we cannot manifest. I remember Emma Curtis Hopkins, the 20th Century healer, writing about this. She stated that we were a “broadcasting station.” We are always broadcasting from within ourselves out into the world. What we are broadcasting is coming back to us. We cannot truly broadcast with out intense feeling. She commented on how we broadcast about all our woes. We have lots of feelings about that… She was making fun of us to get her point across.

Yes, passion is the prime ingredient for manifesting. What does Dr. Joe Dispenza write, “The intention sends the signal out; the feeling brings the intention back to us.” Again, it is a feeling Universe and we are always vibrating. We even attract the people in our life who are vibrating similarly to us.

There is no way around it, and if we truly are able to be honest with ourselves, we will understand this concept. When we understand it and accept it, then we have something with which to work. Awareness is the first step in our spiritual evolution.

If I notice that I am getting very passionate about something negative and non serving to me and the world, I can stop and turn it around, realizing that I am actually putting more fuel on the fire by focusing on it. It reminds me of Mother Therese who often said she wouldn’t march against something but only for that which she wanted to see in the world.

I understand and accept that passion is what drives me to greater expression. If I used it as a barometer for my choices of how I spend my time and to what I give my energy, I will live a more focused life in love …in passion. I invite you to examine what you are passionate about. Is it moving your life to greater loving expression?

Love and Aloha,
