What is your REASON FOR BEING?

The Japanese culture has a word to describe this FORCE. The word is IKIGAI; it means your REASON FOR BEING, and everyone has this force. The most fascinating aspect of IKIGAI for me is that it has FOUR Primary Elements.

They are:

  1. What you love:  Your passion, life force.
  2. What are you good at: Your vocation.
  3. What your world needs:  Your mission 
  4. What you can get paid for:  Your profession 

I observed that the Four Elements correspond to the Four Eacred Elements of:  Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. 

What you love is reflected by your emotions (your WATER Element) located in your HEART, your SELF Energy Belt. The Heart Chakra.

What you are good at your vocation, (your FIRE Element) located in your BELLY, or SELF RESPECT Energy Belt. The Sacrel and Solar Plexus Chakras.

What your world needs, your mission (your AIR Element) located in your HEAD or SELF REALIZATION Energy Belt. The Throat and Third Eye Chakras.

What you get paid for, your profession, (your Earth Element) located in your Pelvic area or SELF NURTURING Energy Belt. The Base Chakra 

These Elements are DIVINELY MASCULINE AND FEMININE, the WATER and EARTH Elements are FEMININE, whilst the FIRE and AIR Elements are MASCULINE Forces.

Imagine now feeling the Force of these 4 REASONS FOR BEING, IKIGAI and allowing the Four Primary Elements converge. 

This is the true meaning of IKIGAI……     It is the 5th Element, our BLISS!

It is the source of the Force which drives all our creations and is known as THE BLACK HEART. (Refer my previous articles and my book Awaken Your Immortal Intelligent Heart”)

The philosopher and civil rights leader Howard W Truman says :

    “Dont ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that” –

    because what the world really needs is people who have come alive” 

Whenever we are immersed in any endeavour which brings us into our Hearts that makes us come alive, and we are bringing ourselves fully into it we instantly become more generative, moremagnetic, and more dynamic in our ability to create change. 

Our hearts have Elements and these Elements when balanced open us up to our BLISS. 

A simple exercise to balance your hearts elements and bring you the BLISS, IKIGAI is to simply say to your heart:

       “HEART I LOVE YOU.”

        “I Now SUMMON the Forces to balance my WATER ELEMENT , my FIRE ELEMENT, my EARTH ELEMENT, and AIR ELEMENT 

When the elements in your Heart are balanced the FIFTH Element activates.

You become one with the SOURCE of the FORCE and these 4 REASONS FOR BEING becomes balanced. 

The trick is to get them ALL balanced, then you will begin to feel the ALIVENESS

There is a simple peace when you discover this 5th Element, IKIGAI BLISS or BLACK HEART.

It is the quest for peace in your life, and brings purity for all there is. A heart not contaminated by fear becomes pure. Just believing in the absence of fear in your pure heart allows it to speak to you in a special way. 

When you bring your REASON FOR BEING into resonance with our hearts 4 primary elements by activating and balancing them, our life becomes renewed.

The force of renewal is magnetic. You have come ALIVE 

Have YOU ever reflected on your REASON FOR BEING , What is YOUR  REASON FOR BEING?

Heart, I love you,
