This month I’m feeling as though a big weight has been lifted and I’m suddenly free of so many things that have held me back in the past. This is giving me a sense of empowerment and the ability to use what I’ve learned to achieve a more fulfilled and purposeful life—what a sense of freedom! Yet, at the same time, I’m feeling a bit anxious and overwhelmed, and I’m not sure how best to move forward?
I had been wondering if others were feeling the same way. So recently, I asked some of my friends if they were experiencing the same dichotomy of feelings. The responses I got varied. Some said they were feeling the same way, while others told me they knew exactly what they needed to do to accomplish their goals and that they were not feeling the least bit overwhelmed.
Wow, there are a lot of changes taking place this month! And it’s about time. But, for some of us, the energy of this month is confusing and we aren’t sure how to make sense out of what we’re feeling and it’s impeding our progress. Many of us sense that something is brewing, but we don’t understand what it is. We may be feeling anxious because we’re having trouble pulling memories from the past that match our present circumstances. The lesson here is that we need to be patient and allow things to manifest on their own at the right time—we call this divine timing.
This is similar to what we go through when we’re job seeking. After an interview, we’re often unsure about the impression we made. If several days pass and we haven’t heard from the interviewer, fear sets in because we know we probably didn’t get the job. And of course, we wonder what went wrong. But then one day we finally get a job and it’s much better suited to us. And looking back, we’re glad we didn’t get the first job we interviewed for—the one we thought we wanted. It’s as if the universe swooped in and gave us what we needed when we needed it.
Sometimes it takes more energy to not stir up past fears and disappointments than it does to get things done. To move forward, we need to quiet our minds and trust that things will work out. A quiet mind also allows us to discern between things that are working and things that are not. So take a deep breath, respect your divine inspired direction and trust that the life you seek will be fulfilled when the time is right. But do your part, follow your heart and move forward.
