Finding Our Way

Have you ever felt stuck, overwhelmed, stressed out & exhausted as if you are spinning your wheels into no where? What do you do in these moments of awareness? Do you give up, give in or get on with finding your way- another way- a new direction - a new way of being other than stuck?
In each moment our unconscious mind which is directly connected to our universal/divine source, shares with us the answers to our most sought after questions. Many of us (myself included) often choose either not to listen or we don't know how to listen. We have gotten so used to discounting our own voice, our own wants, needs and desires that when we get a glimmer of the voice within we discount it, rationalize it and assume it to be something other than what it is...divine guidance. Our little voice, our connection to our deeper self is always giving us feedback and to the extent that we open ourselves up to it is to the extent that we can being to not only find our way but to blaze a trail of bliss in our lives.
Finding our way can be as simple as this:
  • Simple Awareness, by this I mean, listen to the voice within. What is it sharing with you, good feelings or bad feelings? If it feels good, if it feels "right", if it feels joyous and effortless than that is your internal guidance system pointing you in "the right direction". If it feels heavy, worrisome, doubtful or uncomfortable in anyway then chances are that is not the "right direction" for you.
  • Choice is what is next and this is where for many of us the fun or the challenge can begin. When we become aware of and actually hear our inner voice expressed to us through our feelings we now have a decision to make...What do we do with the message? What do you want to do with the message? I can write a book on this section alone but for the purposes of today's blog simply stated what do you want and are the feeling you are feeling moving you toward what you want or away from what you want? If the voice within is sharing with you good stuff and it is moving you towards what you want then go with it...feel good...all you have to do is listen and then ACT in accordance with what you know you need to do. I had a client that wanted a certain type of almond butter- she was clear- she knew the message yet she chose to eat something else- a different type of butter... She got sick- very sick and thought herself crazy over wanting almond butter. I shared with her that her inner wisdom was clearly telling her what her body needed and the more that she listens to this voice and then acts in time with her inner guidance is how quickly she will start feeling greater health. She left our session and bought the almond butter. She has not doubted her inner voice since. She listens and then acts in accordance even if in her mind she thinks it to be silly... she has learned the importance of honoring her true needs and her life has transformed in a matter of weeks because of this.
  • Creating our Way... Our inner voice helps us to find our way but what we choose to do with the path once we get there is what determines our outcomes. What do you want? What are you doing to support yourself in creating and experiencing more of that in your life NOW? Listen... then let yourself know how important your wants are by taking action that honors you and the path you choose to create for yourself! You are an amazing creator- an incredible being so go BE all that you are here to BE...
