My friend Alison is shopping for a new car. Her 2002 Nissan served her well, but her trusted chariot is turning into a clunker.
Alison visited one of those mega auto-centers to test drive a bunch of potential new rides. Her primary goal is to find something she feels comfortable driving, so she immediately nixed one of the cars because it has too many blind spots that made it hard to see and navigate.
One of the most effective spiritual practices I’ve committed to is keeping a meditation journal. Over the years, it’s become a treasure map from my Soul to me.
You see, Souls speak in the languages of emotions, sensations, and imagery. They often use these languages during meditation to give messages and information.
Your Soul gently communicates with you. Those subtle nudges show up in a variety of ways.
- Maybe a tingly feeling in your body like champagne bubbles on the inside.
Meditation is on the rise. Lots of folks are touting the benefits of quieting your mind for a few minutes a day. Lower blood pressure, less, anxiety, a better night’s sleep, a clearer mind, and a calmer attitude are just a few of the benefits of meditation.
What the health experts aren’t telling you is that when you begin to meditate, especially if you develop a consistent meditation practice, you can have experiences that science can’t easily explain.
I’m going to be upfront with you. I believe meditation is a big piece of spiritual life. I haven’t found a better practice to release my pesky, troubling thoughts so that I can feel my natural state of peace.
But I get it. I live in the real world too. I understand you don’t always have time to meditate. When you do make time, it can be hard to quiet your thoughts.
Follow your bliss. This advice used to really piss me off. I would think to myself, “if I knew how to follow my bliss, don’t you think I’d be doing it.”
I was super frustrated and found myself spinning in circles trying to figure it out, but it’s way easier than I made it.
The secret most folks don’t know–Bliss hides in plain sight. It’s in the most random things and in ordinary places.
Does this ever happen to you? 🙋🏼♀️
You 👀 look around your world 🌎 and see others thriving and wonder why things aren’t working out for you like they are for them.❓❓❓
💰Your business is barely limping along while your colleagues are killing it.
🍪 The smell of a cookie makes your pants instantly tighter while your best friend can eat a whole box of Oreos and not gain a pound.
“What should I do?”
I get this question a lot from clients when they’re at a crossroads – unsure which way to go.
Most folks are looking for the neon arrow that will point them in the right direction.
Ironically, life isn’t going to tell us what to do. Why not? Because it’s here to serve us. Life likes to give us options.
As humans, we carry an innate ability to create.
