Remember Alice in Wonderland and one of its most famous quotes?
If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there. – Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll's quote is not just about the destination, but also about the journey and intention. It is a reminder that you need to know where you are going in order to get there, and this can be applied to any area of your life. My destination is the place where I want to be. The path for me to get there is not always easy but it gets clear with goals.
The direction of your life, school, your career, and your business all starts with a plan. You need to know exactly what you want and where you are going in order to make it happen. I think it's important to have at least a general idea of what you want, or who you want your future to be. For example, you may not know exactly how to achieve your dreams in the beginning and that's totally fine. The important thing is to take the first step towards goal-setting. It can be as small as setting up an hour a day to start.
This quote is applicable in many areas of life. It doesn't matter what you want to do, the important thing is to have a goal in mind and be willing to adjust your path if you get off the trail.
The quote is not just applicable to people who are looking for a career or their life-long passion. This quote can also be applied to people who are seeking meaning in their lives, connecting with spirituality, or that are trying to find a new way of living.
If you are looking for tools to assist you on a meaningful journey, and in any area of your life, here are some suggestions:
Tarot Readings - After setting your intentions or goals, try a tarot reading. If you are a beginner you can do a tarot spread of 1 card for a single question, 3 cards (Past, Present, Future), or search for a Tarot & Oracle board for a more complete reading and guidance. Really connect with the experience and let your intuition guide you.
Journaling - What better way to track and celebrate your achievements towards where you want to be than having a journal? It can be any type of journal but a gratitude journal is well-known for its benefits, so it's definitely worth a try. If you are giving your first steps towards gratitude, start with easy and basic things, and remember the basics. It's not the same as unimportant. Having hope, a home, and meaningful relationships can be considered basic but are fundamental for our well-being. This means that we don't need to win the lottery in order to feel grateful, you can feel thankful by the kindness of a stranger or by a nurturing meal.
Crystals - Gemstones are a lovely way to bring some good energy to the table! If properly programmed crystals can be a great anchor in pursuing your dreams, and for that crystals should be first cleansed and then programmed for a specific intention. You can learn more about it in our blog, and discover more about crystals properties on our website. Each gem has its own energy, some are more soothing, and others can be energizing, bring clarity or help you connect with your intuition. These are just to name a few.
