I write a lot about women discovering their authentic voice and standing in their power. It is wonderful to leave your past mistakes behind and embrace the present moment with complete focus. However, it does not mean that challenges will not arise and even try to knock you down, or pull you off course. Staying connected to that the divine guidance that you have discovered will eventually be tested — and you need to be prepared.
Without a daily spiritual practice you can easily slip back into your old thinking. The lower self-ego-driven-voice (which we have worked so hard to silence) can come screaming through. All the negative and painful emotions from the past can surface like old seaweed on the ocean beach of your dreams. You need to tap into that higher guidance through mediation and prayer to stay on your course. The silence you experience will steer the ship on which you are traveling.
Don’t throw your anchor overboard because someone disagrees with you. Dig deep into your soul and examine your intentions and your purpose. Are you living your truth? Are you standing in the light? Don’t allow someone else’s darkness to obscure the voyage you are on.
“It takes courage…to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
Life will always have unhealed perceptions swirling in the winds around us, but stay on course and this storm, too, shall pass.
