There are no guarantees and no predictable outcomes. Even when we think we’ve got the tools, know the stats, have put in our time, done our research – it’s still just a winding road into the uncertain, mysterious terrain of “life is a journey."
The people who seem to have it figured out, live one-day-at-a-time, taking the next right step, as close to their hearts and inner knowing as possible; in integrity with the only thing that matters – their truth NOW.
What is your truth now?
It’s a feeling. An inner nudge. The most loving thing you can do for yourself.
Listen to that. Even with no guarantees of outcomes. Even when it’s uncomfortable. Even if it might change tomorrow. Especially when it defies logic.
That is your intuition – your soul calling you.
Our lives unveil their highest path in layers; it's a constant inner distillation that sows seeds of outward expansion.
Note – as long as your truth does no harm! Harm is for neanderthals. Check in. If harm to yourself or another creates feelings of love, empowerment and happiness you should double check; maybe go see a professional for that.
Sometimes your truth will be "I don’t know." Sometimes your truth will be silent. Sometimes your truth will be “This just doesn't feel right." Sometimes your truth will be “This feels right in my core."
Trying to figure out “why, how and what if” shrinks possibility
It has tunnel vision. It perpetuates stagnation.
It has confined me to limited thinking, playing small, forcing circumstances and people pleasing.
A business opportunity recently popped up into my space. It was big, bright and forced me to push myself beyond my comfort zone.
It seemed serendipitous at first; like I had been given my own personal magic genie lamp.
But, it soon became chaotic; felt like a distraction and was out of sync with what I was up to in the world.
Instead of just dropping it or walking away, I got stuck in three days of obsessive thinking, looking for a sign that would clearly illustrate: "Should I quit or forge ahead? "– I’m a back alley whore for signs and synchronicity.
Spiritual axioms like “don’t quit before the miracle”, and “everything you want is on the other side of fear” were showing up in my social media feed. I was drowning in the fear of fear ruining my life.
The opportunity wouldn’t have showed up if it wasn’t meant to be in my life right?
Wrong. So wrong.
I’d forgotten for a second my own medicine. I wasn’t supposed to figure out why.
I was supposed to listen to my inner knowing; my gut feelings; the truth inside of me: “I don’t want to participate in this. End of story.”
Then – lesson later. Sometimes much later.
When I allowed myself to finally acknowledge what was most honest for me, without analyzing my resistance, the clarity and relief rushed in.
Resistance is not the same as fear. It's sometimes your angel of intuition putting her hands on your shoulder, saying “No, no, no. This isn’t it. Not so fast."
My job was to put one foot in front of the other in alignment with what I was honestly feeling and being nudged to do. In spite of the rationale, the unexplainable and the unknown.
Even if it had been some “gift" I had quit on, God or the loving force of the Universe isn’t some trickster with it’s arms crossed wondering if, “These stupid humans will get this one?”
The signs, the opportunities, the omens will come again if you miss them
They actually come back stronger and more obvious: like a quiet knock, then a doorbell ring, and then a crashing down of your door.
So relax. Take a moment. Check in to your heart space. Below your neck.
There is always a compelling voice that is calling.
She will sometimes be bold. She will sometimes be quiet.
She will say move.
She will say stand.
She will say wrong turn.
She will say let it go.
She will say rest, heal, make space.
She will say create, put it out there, try it on.
As long as you, are at the very least, trying to align with the highest YES in your life – each action will move you closer and closer to a more open, loving, and abundant path. It will put you in sync with your soul's desires, which are far more peaceful, interesting and healing than anything your mind can conceive.
As always, I love to hear from you.
Light and Love,
