Follow Your Bliss

In order to discover your purpose in life, one common advice I hear is, follow your bliss.

It is said that living in tune with your destiny is the pathway to creating your best life, living the life of your dreams and living a life of no regrets. Everything you need to succeed at your mission is contained within you – the Universe even created your intuition to help you along your path.

Here’s an exercise I learnt from Manifestation Miracle. Do an activity daily purely for the purpose of self-nurturing. Cook a healthy, nutritious meal for yourself. Listen to music you enjoy. Explore somewhere you haven’t been before. Learn something new. Write a loving letter to yourself. Read a book. Take a nap. Bond with nature. Spend time playing with a pet. Do a type of exercise you enjoy. Spend quality time with someone who loves, supports and inspires you. Or just create your own activity.

The activity should be something that you look forward to. Spend at least 10 minutes doing it. Mix these activities up each day.

After each activity, reflect on your thoughts, feelings and experiences during the activity and write them down in your journal. What’s most important is that you remain open to discovering and tuning into your destiny and allowing the Universe to work in tandem with you.

A regular practice of self-nurturing activities will help to increase your self-awareness, get you in touch with your spiritual self and boost feelings of self-worth, love and accomplishment.

  1. It strikes me how difficult it is for many people to find purpose in life. A study colleague earning very good money once admitted how he was without purpose. My cousin with a busy marketing job, admits that if it was not for her job, there would be no purpose. I can to a certain extent relate to that, and especially now during pandemic.

    I have my blogs and my eagerness to learn. I have time now where I did not have time before. The worst enemy is having no projects in life, but I am convinced if we are just to look, they are easy to find.

    • Yes, having projects in life and keeping busy is certainly great. I just would like to add that always make sure the projects get you excited in the mornings, else maybe it’s time to switch projects.

      Do appreciate the free time that you have during this pandemic. I think this is actually the best time for self-reflection and to study and practice self-help, because there are certainly less distractions now!

  2. Hi, Clark. Interesting article. It reminds me of a mind-blowing experience of touching the energy of the Infinite intelligence while visiting a good friend of mine who at that time was selling high-end audio products, and practicing healing.

    He told me a bit about healing and that we all have helpers assigned to us. He said he could see I had three helpers, but I was not ready to see them yet. When he took my hand to check on my energy and aura, I got a jolt of energy flowing through me. I felt this tingling feeling and the power of the energy was so strong that I couldn’t help giggling!

    That experience was a life-changer for me. Recently, some weeks before Christmas, I attended a masterclass with Jeffrey Allen, and I must have awakened my spiritual self, because both life and my senses have changed a lot, in every way. My physical health has become better, new business opportunities began to appear right afterwards, and continue to appear. Money suddenly turned up quite surprisingly.

    Furthermore, I had the pleasure of attending Tony Robbins’ latest virtual event, where he had invited Master Co. The meditation session was intense, emotional and very revealing on a personal level. I am a new person, the real me.

    I do not know Dr. Jean Houston, but she is interesting, and I would love to attend her class. 

    Do you know if her class is also running on dates other than 4 February? I cannot attend on that date.

    All the best,


    • It was very good to read about your positive experiences with spiritual awakening. It is something that can be experienced by every human being on earth, and when we are ready we would be guided towards it.

      For Jean’s class, just register your email when you’re free. Since this is an online event it is always available, if not live then you can listen to the recording.

  3. Thank you for this uplifting post! When many people hear “Follow Your Bliss” or “Follow Your Path”, they will claim that they don’t have the money to backpack across Europe or breed prize racehorses. I appreciate your ability to point out that following your bliss begins with simply practicing self-nurturing activities every single day!

    • Yes, following your bliss doesn’t have to be a sensational, incredible thing that not many people have done before. It is simply what makes you happiest now. What gives you the good, excited shivers.

  4. Interesting subject. How many times in one’s life span does one have to rediscover their passion or role in life?

    • Well, I think it differs for different individuals. Some are born to do just one thing, and some may have many passions in his or her lifetime.

  5. Great article. I will check out the link. I believe in following your bliss, and feeling grateful for what you have. I love self help books.
