This morning I was going through some entries from the book I’m working on with my Spirit Guides, and I found the following passage. It ties in perfectly with this week’s Messages of Joy podcast about recognizing that only you know the best journey for your life. I hope this adds additional insight and meaning for you on your journey.
As you grow up, many of you have been taught to trust other people – that other people know more about you than you do. This starts innocently enough, as parents teach their children safety and behavior. But in order to live your ideal life, at a certain point you decide to take responsibility for your life, and that includes all the decisions you make, and most of all, your happiness. No one else knows what is best for your happiness. You have to listen within and be guided.
With practice, you will hear the voice of your Spirit, and it will be easy for you to know what to do next and what is important in your life. In fact, it’s actually harder to ignore it. It took practice for you to repeatedly do what you don’t want to do against the voice of your Spirit.
So now you can create a new practice and start today. What is your Spirit telling you right now? What do you like, and what do you want to change about your life? You don’t have to know how to change the events or situations, you just have to know how to change your attitude. Change your attitude, and your life changes. Pathways become clear, and new choices become easier to make.
Do you think the birds worry about where to fly? No, they just fly. They don’t ask the other birds, “Well where do you think I should fly today? Do you think I should fly, or should I swim?” That’s preposterous. Birds fly and fish swim. Well, you do what you. You have your own way of getting through your life, and you do it the way you do it. If you don’t like how you’re doing it, change how you’re doing it.
You just have to know how to reframe your life, and that takes some training. But once you do it, just like anything else, it becomes easier and easier. Focus on the feeling you want and your outside situations change. Everything becomes brighter, and it’s like turning on a light. Turn on a light and you suddenly see all the objects and obstacles in a room you couldn’t see with the light off. Suddenly, there is a path, there is a reason, there is a way forward. Suddenly you can see what you’ve been looking for the entire time.
It sounds so simple when they put it like that, doesn’t it? I hope you’re enjoying the new year!
Lots of love to you,
Melanie Jade 🙂
