Today was one of those days where spirit is just guiding me. I had a clear mind and set out for some errands with intentions to use my intuition and be curious about the unknown. It was nothing profound, but a good reminder when you leave your emotions and logic out of it you can be led right where you need to be when being guided by spirit. I went to a home builders store to find a piece of wood that is glued and finished to look like a backboard. I didn’t know where in the gigantic wood department I would find it. Of course I could have asked for assistance, but I kind of wanted to find it myself. When I first went into the store, I was initially a bit overwhelmed, then I headed to the lumber department with curiosity, envisioning what I wanted. I walked along the main aisle with a clear mind/emotions and felt inclined to turn, so I did. And about midway down the aisle was exactly what I needed. It was great! What I initially feared would take forever to find, then intended to find, happened quickly and easily.
A few days later I went for my annual physical. Afterward I needed to get bloodwork done. When I went down to the lab it was jammed & the line to check-in was long. I decided to wait and come back another time. In the evening before bed, I always set intentions and ask for guidance where needed. Whether it be through dreams or just being guided by spirit. That night I asked to be motivated with out doubt when the lab would be slow to go to get my bloodwork. The following morning, I had an uncontested urge to go get the bloodwork first thing. So I gathered myself and set out. When I got there were 2 people ahead of me to check in and I waited less than 10 min. to get my blood drawn. I was home in less than an hour! This is normally a 20 min. drive each way from my house! I was elated how effortless it was.
Although these are trivial tasks, it is such a great feeling when we are just led directly to the solution without a lot of trial and error. Being of open mind, in a intended, trusting and curious perspective, really is a rewarding place to create, discover and accomplish. One thing to also remember is when you are blindly asking for a sign of your next step to be open and not try to control the form of your answer. But be more tuned into it’s truth for your circumstance.
I recently listened to a reading by Collette Baron-Reid for the month of March. She ended it with some powerful words: “Wherever our attention is – is what we signal to the universe we want more of. Pay attention to what you want & less attention to what you don’t want. Put more attention into what you stand for and less attention into what you don’t stand for. That is what will lead us forward.” What perspective you come from is what you create. And because we are all connected, we create our reality, our environment, we contribute to an energy of influence. We have so much power to guide life and we don’t often use that power to benefit ourselves or our world. We tend to focus on what is wrong and what we don’t know how to accomplish. Spirit is here for us always. And we have to ask for what we want, have a conversation with spirit, because they are listening and ready to help. always intend what is for your highest good and for the good of all. Then be patient, go about our way and pay attention for the signs that lead us to the end result. We have to be honest with ourselves when we see a sign and if it is what will allow us to accomplish what we are capable of doing without throwing us off course or over extending our hearts desire. Sometimes the sign is a stepping stone for growth and not the end result. That is where you have to be honest with yourself. Does it make you feel like it is what you want or are you just thinking that this is what I am supposed to do and why? Also, trust that spirit has your best interest at heart and they are listening. If you are not seeing your answers, maybe it is time to shift your focus and consider a new objective.
Let us draw a card from the Wisdom of the Oracle Deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The question is, how can I stay focused on what I want & avoid negative/fearful thoughts? The card I drew: “Chaos & Conflict in protection mode. The card booklet says, This is an advantageous moment to restore order and recognize the opportunity for negotiation. If your intention is to find the best solution for the highest good of all, there is positive news: the timing is perfect. Things are already stirred up, so don’t be afraid to jump into the mix. I say: remember that things have to get shaken up for you to find your path to truth. Usually when something is upsetting or against your beliefs, it is time to go within and find a solution to move forward. To recognize within yourself why you feel the discord. Is it motivated by unmet truth or does it require adjustments within to get to the truth? Do you understand the needed changes or should you perhaps meditate to open space in your mind for spiritual guidance? Chaos happens because there is change. You can contribute to guiding it toward truth by thinking and acting in your truth for the good of all. It is always important to recognize inside yourself how you contributed to the circumstances in order to steer toward truth. Even if it is because you were unaware until the change happened. Somehow we all contribute on some level at some time. Remember, our outer world reflects our inner world, denial can be blind. Change is meant to wake us up or motivate us to live our purpose on this earth at this time. The longer we each wait to live our truth, the more challenging it can be to reach it. For the inspiration is the inception. The less energy put into motion toward the negative, the less obstacles are created for the path forward to truth. Trust and knowing are two key tactics for success. And “Truth” is meant to be.
