Many of us perfectly imperfect human beings go through life with interests that we never truly explore, nurture, and enjoy because we are too concerned about what others think. Of course, that’s no way to live, and it certainly would NOT be described as Spiritually Authentic!

Finding your passion is an important part of self-discovery and a critical step forward on your Spiritually Authentic journey. You’ll be a happier, more balanced, grounded individual when you find and develop your passions, especially if you also take into account your desire to be more spiritually authentic. Your whole life will change before your eyes!

Finding Your Passion

You may think that finding your passion would be easier said than done, and it is for many people, but there is a way forward. Using a couple of simple steps, you can find your passion:

  1. Set your mind to finding your passion. Once you focus your mind and your intentions on your pursuit of passion, your mind will be open to, and receptive of, anything that will contribute to the solution. Including your spirituality in this process further helps to center and focus your energy.
  2. Use an effective mind expansion and visualization tool. There is a well-known tool you can use to help you make progress along the way to your Spiritually Authentic life if you are afraid, or unsure of how to branch out and follow your dreams. You can also use this tool to keep going down the right path to find what you are interested in. What is this handy tool? It’s embracing your passion through affirmations!

Affirmations can help you push through accumulated self-doubts and help lead you to a more Spiritually Authentic, passionate life.

What Are Passion Affirmations?

Many people hear the term “passion affirmations” and wonder what affirmations could possibly be, and why they should use them. Passion affirmations are statements that will activate your brain to focus on and attain the goals you set for yourself as you make positive progress toward your spiritually authentic life.

These statements often are descriptive of the feelings or behaviors you would like to possess or express in any given situation. They can help to remind you of your self-worth, boost your self-esteem, and remind you of the importance of your passions.

How Can You Use Passion Affirmations to Help Create a Spiritually Authentic Life?

Passion affirmations can be used in moments when you might be having some negative inner dialogue, or when you are second-guessing your desire to pursue your passions and create your spiritually authentic life.

In those moments of doubt, you may want to use a passion affirmation like, “I have no need to do what others think I should. I am strengthened by doing the things I love to do.”

You’ll want to believe this even if it’s a challenge in the beginning. Continue speaking the affirmation out loud, in a confident tone of voice, in a way such that your mind hears your voice saying the words.

Include statements about your spirituality and your desire for authenticity in the set of affirmations you use. You don’t need a lot of them, in fact, one suggested affirmation could be: “I am pursuing a spiritually authentic life that empowers me to be my best every single day, to make the most of my abilities and my experience, and that brings me joy.”

You are reaffirming the statement and making it your personal truth every time you say your passion affirmation out loud.

There are also passion affirmations that can help you overcome the guilt that you may feel when you intentionally indulge in your passion. We all have a right to pursue our passions, as long as they are in balance with our responsibilities.

There is nothing wrong with pursuing a passion. You deserve to spend time on you.

When you are having one of those days where you feel guilty for enjoying your favorite hobby or past time you can say, “I am actively involved in my hobbies. It gives me energy and strength after a hard day.”

You give your mind permission to replace negative thoughts with positive ones when you use affirmations.

Passion affirmations not only help you discover your passions but also enable you to live a more Spiritually Authentic and passionate life. This positive dialogue will become second nature in time as it pushes out negative feelings and self-doubt. Being passionate is a way of expressing love for yourself. You should indulge in your passions and remember that they are good for you and those around you.
