With all my heart, I love expressing my true intentions: walking along my soul’s path as I passionately embody my purposes! I absolutely adore feeling at peace contributing my gifts. I am completely engaged by being in the flow – that place where I am creatively on fire, fearless, and fully participating to the best of my ability. Can you relate?
This pattern is wonderful – until it’s not. Occasionally I encounter a bump in the road that obstructs my flow. I find myself in treacherous waters, where I judge everything. I question why my dreams are taking so long. I wonder whether I’m living in the right city. Could my path really belong here in the streets of Chicago? I go on to challenge my relationships: Are my neighbors, relatives, and friends right for me? Have I somehow diverted my destiny by being with folks who rarely agree with, understand, or support my choices? This line of questioning often explodes into an attack on my utterly imperfect self: How can I realize my deepest desires when I have so many fears, worries, and distractions? Perhaps there’s been a terrible mistake. What if I’m supposed to be in a different profession, living in another city, relating with others than those in my current circle? Could it be that the circumstances and conditions of my life are utterly wrong?
How do I balance this dreadful doubt with my confident belief that I am an infinite being? How can my immortal soul stay healthy, exercise, eat well, make money, pay bills, care for others, and manage all my everyday realities in this humanly existence? I am confused; I thought spiritually awakening beings would be free of human obligations and challenges.
As it turns out, both are true and complementary: I am a mortal human and an immortal soul. My challenge – and opportunity if I am to fully actualize my potential – is to make peace beginning with resolving these judgments. Thankfully, working in my Records has revealed a powerful, practical approach to this dilemma. Begin by considering that you are the ideal agent for embodying and radiating your soul’s truths. Next, accept that your family of origin is optimal for expressing your soul’s intentions. Third, appreciate that the people in your life are present precisely to assist in expanding your spiritual awareness.
As we consider, accept, and appreciate, layers of resistance dissolve judgment. We begin to live as if everything is supposed to be this way, because it is. Everything is precisely as it should be, in fact. I am the very best embodiment for expressing my soul’s purposes at this time in history, in this precise location, surrounded by these wonderful assistants. And, my friend, so are you!
Only by accepting our ordinary reality of our humanity can our inner light shine through. Appreciation of this reality empowers the light to shine freely and powerfully into the world. What a wonderful way to live!
Join me on this extraordinary journey. In my new book, Discover Your Soul’s Path through the Akashic Records: Taking Your Life from Ordinary to ExtraOrdinary (Hay House, pre-orders accepted now), I explore these ideas in full, but you don’t have to wait another minute! Let’s begin now.
