"Fear and resistance arise when you don't trust that where you are going is better off than where you've been" Debbie Ford
I love this quote and I often refer to it when I feel my self stuck on stupid. When I am afraid to take another step forward or backwards...just stuck. I am not often stuck, and when I am, it is overwhelming to me. I feel trapped and all the self doubt and self-loathing talk begins and it gets louder. It is those moments I go to my knees in prayer and discernment. Not asking for strength but asking for guidance. Dear God what do I need to learn from this? What am I supposed to get? Sometimes the answer is very clear and sometimes I have to wade a bit further into the deepest part of the sea of my life. I wait and I do. The wait is staying on my knees, the doing is being still.
It is the same when folks come and go in my life. I ask the same question: Dear God what am I to learn from this relationship, this meeting, this phone conversation. And again sometimes it is clear and sometimes it is not and I have to go a bit further. I have learned that whatever I am lacking in my life whether I want it or not shows up. But it is always what is needed to give me the lesson I need to move forward toward my grandest right now.
I am moving into a phase of discernment about some key issues in front of me. I am trying to listen with a open heart and clear head. I feel pretty confident that what I want I shall have. Surrendering to the divinity is my best course of action in letting go of fear and resistance. There is nothing to do but walk out on faith. I have done it a zillion times before and I remain standing with humanity in check.
I can feel the shift in the universe on my behalf.
