This past week has been significant for me personally. I was joyfully embracing and honoring more completely the ‘thing’ I thought was most important for me… the thing that has brought me much passion and joy. I was so proud of myself for finally getting out of my own way and making a choice that I knew was the right one, and that would open many doors for me on so many levels. I was thrilled to have that sense of certainty within, knowing that I was stepping into myself more fully. I even made a quick video for you here.
Then, not but 15 minutes later, I was knocked off course. In an instant my eyes were opened and a new truth became crystal clear. It wasn’t what I was expecting or what I necessarily thought I wanted, and it most certainly would cause a significant shift in how I moved forward with things. Yet in that moment, I had an even deeper sense of certainty that this other ‘thing’ was what I needed to focus on. The thing that would allow me to dance more freely with the flow of life, rather than pushing and struggling with it. And with that certainty came a sense of peace. It was like I’d known it for awhile, just wasn’t ready or willing to receive this wisdom. The more I thought on it, the more excited I became. I felt myself expanding and opening parts of myself that had been closed for some time.
Yet if I hadn’t made that initial choice, I don’t believe that I would have been receptive to receive the new guidance. You see, I had to claim something more for myself. When I did, the Universe claimed something greater for me. I’m amazed at the clarity I now have and at how beautifully things unfolded.
What I am finding fascinating now is the responses I’m receiving when I share my newfound insight. Some have been wonderfully supportive and uplifting, and are encouraging me to continue to dive more deeply into this new revelation. Some have even cheered for me to be able to make such a peaceful shift. Others, however, have been less supportive and have been reacting with fear, anger, and loss. It’s been harder to stay centered in the peace and excitement of the new thing, yet I am still able to maintain that sense of certainty within, without getting caught up in the storm of their emotions.
The same is true for any change that you personally experience. Your truth and direction isn’t always what others want to hear or will emotionally support, because by default, when you change they are forced to change as well. Many times they will fight to keep things the way they have been. They don’t mean any harm (usually); it is a defense mechanism. But if you are able to honor their process while you honor yours, it can make the transition easier for everyone involved. Nonetheless, in the end, you need to do what you feel is right and true for you.
As you step into the flow of your deepest self, may you be guided to a far greater place than you can imagine.
Wishing you all the best as you unlock your potential and experience your possibilities.
