There have been a few times in my life where the strong voice of clarity seemed to reach out to me..
where everything around me seemed to stop and I tumbled down into a place within myself of the deepest, most profound truth.
I knew, without words, exactly what I was supposed to do next.
I was immediately swept up in emotion. It felt like the entire universe and everything in it had conspired to get me where I needed to be. There wasn't time to question the information or any need to. I just knew.
I usually cry during these moments because something has been touched that is beyond my human understanding.
I felt this way the first time I stepped into an herbal apothecary for my very first class to study herbs. I felt this way, when I went to a poetry reading at the Boulder Bookstore and decided right then and there to go to grad school to study Poetics. I have felt this way when I have fallen in love and I have felt this way when I see something beyond beautiful in nature.
Have you ever felt like this about something in your life? When something arrives in front of you and you can't help but be stunned, if even for a moment...and you know your life will be further more changed? How did you feel when this happened?
For me, these moments are rare. They do not come along very often. But when they do, I pay attention.
Most of the time, I feel like I am free floating out in the Cosmos....
all decisions feel intensely serious and critical.
This usually leads to more confusion and for me, a state of suspended animation.....Should I or shouldn't I...?
I am frozen with choice. I tumble down the rabbit hole..(but not in a good way!).
It is hard to admit but this is more the norm. So, the question is: How do you make big decisions, how do you know when it is time to leap into the unknown, how do you know where to steer yourself next...?
There are a few things I have come up with to help me along when I feel this way and I hope they help you figure some things out in-between the "BIG WISDOM" moments, like above.
1. What is Getting in my Way?
I take stock: Is it fear, finances, potential repercussions? Do I think I am not ready? Am I waiting for circumstances to be different? What is IT?
I try to round up all the voices inside and see what they have to say. Making lists is a good practice. Let all those questions arise and write them down. Then take a look.
Is this life or death? Probably not, then what is stopping you?
There you will find your answers and hopefully get some perspective.
2. Tune Into my Intuition.
What does my gut say about it? What is that inner feeling..does it go TOWARDS the thing or back away? We are taught to mistrust this feeling. To shove it down inside and not listen to it.
This is a very potent resource that we need to relearn to listen to and trust. Like a best friend that is always there for us. It is worth it, believe me.
How do we bring forth this gift of our intuition in a stronger way?
Are you feeling called to something and your deepest intuitive sense is saying yes...and yet, you convince yourself you should say no? Why do we do that?
3. Ask For Help
Who are your friends and helpers when it comes to this type of thing?
I find that part of what's usually happening is that someone else's energy is in my space clouding my intuition or wisdom.
So, I turn to my trusted friends and guides, my shaman, my acupuncturist, my craniosacral therapist, oracles cards, good friends, my therapist, my Seer, my spirit guides, my women's group.....sometimes it is just one and sometimes I ask them all!
This often helps clear the channels to see what is getting in my way and I can see little more clearly, what I need to do next.
Who are your helpers?
Sometimes we all have to make decisions and go towards things even if we think we are not yet ready. This can be a scary but necessary time in our evolutionary growth as souls.
IS IT TIME?
to make a change
to take a leap
to try something new
to commit deeper
to let go of
Many blessings to you in your 2019!
