So let’s say that you’ve been listening to your Soul. Whether you’ve been aware of it or not, that’s what’s been happening. You know that you KNOW what you need to do to take the next step, cross the bridge, close the gap between you and what you want.
So what is the hesitation about?
Chances are that it’s not as complicated as you think. More than likely, it’s quite simple. It’s probably about TRUST.
It’s one of the hardest things there is–to trust in YOURSELF. To take what you feel, what you know that you know…and make it happen. Especially when you can’t see it ANY supporting evidence, nothing in the “real” world to back it all up. That’s the hardest part of all.
Earthly reality has its drawbacks, doesn’t it?
What do I mean by that? It’s all about the ego. The part of you that wants to keep you safe. You’ve probably heard this before….but there’s a reason why it keeps coming up.
It’s not easy to trust what you feel. When there’s no evidence to tell you that you’re doing the right thing, following the right path, taking the right advice, it can be all that much harder.
But the thing is…..if you don’t give the whispers of your Soul due credit, they won’t go away. Not forever.
And the longer you ignore them, the more likely they are to come out sideways when they do make their way out.
But what DO you do, then? How do you take seriously what you can’t quite explain? How do you explain it even when you know its right?
Well….getting a second opinion always helps! This is where Spirit comes in. The Universe is waiting for you to ask….all you have to do is let It know you’re ready.
I’ve always found myself easily connected with Spirit…but that doesn’t always mean that it’s been easy to act on what I’ve received, either! Knowing is one thing….accepting, being, and doing is another. Totally.
No matter how “into this stuff” you happen to be, acting on the guidance you get from above is what takes you to a whole new place. It’s stepping up to meet the Universe at the level you were meant to operate from.
WAY easier said than done, of course! I know JUST what that was like. When I received the message about where I was to go, what I was to do, what direction I was to take, it didn’t sound like orders. But it WAS a Divine Mandate. It was also one I could choose to ignore if I wanted to.
Because you can ALWAYS do that. No matter what, you’ve got free will. Always.
The thing is, though….to REALLY ascend to the person you were born to be is going to require acting on your Divine Truth. It’s going to require evolution that you might not feel ready for. It will insist that you take what Spirit told you and run with it….down your own path, of course, but you do have to run!
The TRUST is where it tends to get lost. Actually believing that Spirit will take you where you need to go.
What are some of the ways that I’ve brought that kind of trust into my work? Simple. Putting the struggle down as much as I can against what I THINK I need to be doing. FEEL where the feelings are coming from and ask myself–is this from the heart? If it is, I know that while I might not be easy, it is the right thing to do.
Letting yourself become enveloped in the security of Spirit is a BIG thing, too. It comes in many forms–warm blankets of energy, white light of protection, signs and guidance. This reminds you that you’re not alone, even if it feels that way.
(Remember–so often when we feel alone, that’s just our ego trying to stay in control. It happens to the best of us!)
It might not look like what you expected. Probably it won’t make a lot of logical sense. I could tell you some serious stories there!
Seriously, I’ve spent the last 20 + years repeatedly returning to a place to which I had no logical connection but to which I was CALLED. And I’ll keep returning until the purpose for this has been fulfilled. But it has yet to make earthly “sense”.
Nor did it make any real sense to leave a 6-figure professional life behind for NOTHING but the unknown. But I did it anyway.
Every day I find myself learning to trust in something bigger, even if it is painful and confusing at times. The key is knowing where the feelings are coming from and acting accordingly.
Long story short: the ego wants to keep you safe. The heart wants to set you free. Let the ego do its thing when it comes to things like looking both ways to cross the street and not texting while driving.
Give everything else over to the Heart and Soul…and let the Universe be your guide.
