HJ: Exactly what is destiny? The concept of a life destiny has fascinated mankind since time immemorial. Are our lives totally scripted? Or do we indeed have free will? Depending on who you ask, you will get different answers. However, there is a definitive answer on the subject and it looks something like this: Is there such thing as a destiny? Yes — but that does not mean your life is totally pre scripted. Destiny is only a potential you hold. In other words, you have the potential to live up to or step into your destiny, or rather, your highest potential in a given lifetime — but this is not set in stone! You can make varying levels of progress towards this ultimate destiny depending on what choices you make in life, but it is by no means a certain ‘destination’, if you will. The journey of life on this planet at this time, for most individuals, is one of remembrance and discovery of who they truly are and in the process, fulfilling their potential destiny in this lifetime, or perhaps the next, or the one after and so on.
For those who are aware, there are signs along the way to let you know you are on the path towards fulfilling your destiny. These may take a myriad of forms, but usually involve serendipitous events and synchronicities — signs from the universe that you are in the flow. It is amazing how these magically begin to manifest in your life when you finally begin to say ‘yes’ to your higher calling.
I can give this piece of advice to those who may be unsure where to start on their path or are confused as to what their path may be. Start by seeking to better understanding yourself and the world around you. Engage your spirit and begin searching for answers. State your intention to the universe through affirmation, prayer, meditation, ceremony or all four — that you are ready to step onto your spiritual path and willing to do whatever it takes to reach your destiny. When this is done with authenticity and you are committed to taking action towards your goals, you will experience the magic of the universe as events, circumstances and people will begin to manifest that will help you find and walk your path. And so it is.
