Living with Purpose: Manifesting Your Heart's Desires
By Melanie Votaw

Manifesting can be tricky business. While "The Secret" is a wonderful message, creating what you want isn't always so easy. I believe it is a complex process that we don't fully understand. When we work on manifesting, and things don't happen as fast as we'd like or in exactly the way we'd like, we tend to blame ourselves. However, I suggest that you trust the process. Trust that something wise is at work in your life that may be beyond your comprehension. Have faith that you are being led in the direction that your soul knows is best for you.

Of course, this doesn't mean that you stand by and just let life do whatever it will. Manifesting work puts the universe on notice about what you desire, and, as you probably already know, it often really works!

Working with Images
As you think about the work that you want to do in the world (i.e., your life purpose), working with images is a great way to turn your inner reality into your outer reality. Images are often more powerful than words. So, think about the essence of your life purpose — the work that would bring you the most fulfillment, while also making a contribution in the world. Perhaps the essence is love or freedom or unabashed creativity.

Once you have determined the essence of your life purpose, create a symbol that will signify this essence. If "peace" is the essence, the symbol might be a dove. If "creative freedom" is the essence, the symbol might be a red ribbon dancing over mountains. (In these days of computer generation and Photoshop, let your own inner images be active, as well as interactive!) Be as creative as your heart desires. You can simply imagine the symbol in your mind, but it's even better to create it as an art project. Draw it, paint it, build it, turn it into a computer animation, dance it, sing it — whatever feels like the most fun!

Take a moment and doodle something on paper now! Let your hand move freely, and allow yourself to be surprised by the outcome!

Energize Your Symbol
After you have created your symbol, ask your higher self and any of your angels to assist you in energizing the symbol. Feel the symbol come alive with energy, vitality, love, passion, and joy. Feel it pulsating with life and light, and practice transmitting more energy to your symbol every day. Make it your best friend as you embark on your life purpose journey!
