There have been so many unexpected deaths of younger people lately, am I right? Mind you, I’m 50, so that’s still young in my book. But between friends and stars and all I’m reading on social media, it just feels like many people are dying unexpectedly. Does it worry me? No. It doesn’t. Is there a message with it all? I think there is. For all of us. I think there may be a message for some to take better care of themselves for starters, but I also feel that it reminds us that we need to come back to the basics. To what we aspire to have, be and do in this lifetime. To figure out our purpose here.
Coming Back to Our Dreams
I feel like a fire has been lit under me lately with regard to the things I still want out of life. The ‘coaching’ I’ve been doing in corporate America for so long is something I’d like to take to a larger audience. I feel drawn to do that in many ways, and I’m still experimenting and working on lots of things in the background to do just that. It’s a matter of feeling it out, seeing what people respond to, and just trusting the Universe to guide me.
I’m really doing the same with regard to finding my man too. I have been single (divorced) for years, and I’m finally ready for that great man to come into my life. Am I on the dating apps or “putting myself out there”? No. That doesn’t feel right to me to be honest. I don’t feel drawn to do that. I truly trust that I will meet him when I’m meant to meet him. I’m a believer that the Universe will show you the way when the time is right, and will give you all the signs you need. Even if it means you get the gut feeling to take a quick trip to pick something up at Target and start talking to him at the checkout line. The Universe will bring you together – trust that.
Following Your Guidance
Let me give you a few examples of this – of following the signs you are given. So, for my business and work I’m doing (my side hustle), I had been told by a psychic last fall that I needed to find an agent/manager. I thought, what the heck for? Agents and managers are for when you write a book, need to book engagements, etc. I was excited, but shocked that she said that. When I tuned in to how I felt about that, I actually loved the idea.
I started to work on a book (as I had been doing on and off for a while). The clarity about what I was supposed to write about came to me quickly – usually in the mornings while I was laying in bed, but in bits and pieces all day long. I had it mostly meshed out and I was acting on all the information the Universe was giving me. Very exciting!
So that book proposal just went off to some agents last week – and I’m holding my breath! But at the same time, I trust that if this is something the Universe was guiding me on, it will come to fruition somehow. So, I am just going to let it go and see what happens. I think when we worry or try to control things, we may miss other signs or important information or changes along the way, so I am working hard to let go and allow the Universe to guide me. Trust and believe that what is meant to be for you will happen.
The Universe Will Show You the Way
In terms of relationships, and wanting to find my guy. I have had a few interesting things happen recently. First, that same psychic told me I would meet my man in the near future and he would be my soulmate. She reminded me, as I remind all of you, to not focus on it but just to be my best and happiest and most authentic self and go about my life and he would show up at the right time. Or rather, I would be guided to meet him.
Interesting but after my first reading with her last fall, I walked into Walgreens one day, and in the aisle I stepped into was a man. I immediately felt this rush of giddiness even though I hadn’t even looked at him. He looked over at me and I felt like a teenage girl with a crush! I got all embarrassed and moved to the next aisle. Then I went to make my purchase and chatted with the girl at the register. When I turned around, he was behind me in line smiling at me, and I had the same feeling. It was like my heart was so full and I felt so happy!
Realizing it was Guidance
I asked the psychic about this at a 2nd reading earlier this year and commented that (now bear with me on this one) not only could I not remember his face, but I felt like he wasn’t real. She said I was indeed right. I was being shown how I WILL feel when I meet the right guy. They were giving me a sample of the feelings I will have so I will recognize it and take notice. And by ‘they’ I mean the Divine, the Universe, my Guides, (whatever you believe), etc. WOW!
The funny thing is, I already knew this in my gut. I didn’t let the right guy get away, I was just being shown how I would feel. So magical! Now I really can’t wait to find my guy and feel those feelings again! And I certainly won’t act on anything unless I DO feel that way again.
Be the Crazy One
Oh so many cool ways that the Universe helps guide us. I just feel now, more than ever on this planet, that we need to follow our guts. To trust where we are guided. And let me tell you, I’ve done some things that people thought were crazy when I felt guided. I’ve passed up great jobs, moved several times in a year, made some drastic changes to my lifestyle, and been single for a very long time to work on myself and other things in my life. I think some people think I’m a bit nuts for sure. But I know I’ve been right on track in my growth and progress, and learned what I was meant to learn.
Slow Down and Notice the Guidance You are Given
So, let me circle back here. Why am I telling you all of this? Because I have felt, with all the recent deaths, that we are being shown that we need to dig deeper. To stop getting caught up in the day to day so much, and figure out why we are here and who we are – and really, what makes us happy? To start to follow the signs and our inner guidance. What signs or feelings have you been ignoring? Do you need to get quiet sometimes and pay better attention to your gut and anything the Universe is sending you? To stop overthinking things, talking yourself out of it, or just flat out ignoring huge signs in your life?
If I’ve shown you anything today, I hope I’ve shown you that if you pay close attention, that you will see that the Universe is always showing you your path. It may not all be sunshine and roses either. I now understand very clearly that the last apartment I moved to (for about 6 months) was meant to be my ‘rock bottom’ at this point and to motivate me to get focused on my purpose. Everything comes into our lives for a reason. Learn from it and get moving. I moved to another (much nicer) apartment once I got clear on the message there and the signs came for me to move. I was shown the perfect place for me and my dogs, and we are very happy and peaceful here.
Wake up to a New Awareness
My wish for you is to get clear. Ask for signs and be patient and quiet, and they will come. And if it feels right, follow them. Let yourself be guided to your best life. Because really, life is too short for you to not take the time to figure out what you are here to learn and do. It’s meant to be joyful, this lifetime of yours. Get clear on what you want, but open to it being delivered in a different way too. It can all be quite magical when you actually slow down and allow the answers to come to you. Put your wishes out there, then let go and wait for the signs of what action you should take…they will come.
