How to Navigate YOUR Storm

I am in the throws of round 3 of whatever I have… A cold? The flu? Recalibration? Who knows! All the sniffing and snerking and copious body fluids leave me feeling quite annoyed and impatient. Enough already! How’s that for a model Lighthouse? I am wondering when it will all be over and what, exactly, is the purpose of all this goo? Do you find yourself having similar thoughts? Yep, we are the model of patience, you and I! So I sit down with the intention of connecting to the highest ones of love, light and wisdom to ask, “What is in the highest and best interests for all concerned for this week’s Wisdom Wednesday readers?” And it begins… We know many of you struggle to understand the why and how of the storms of your life. Deep within are the answers you seek. As much as others can “tell” you things, deeper still is your own inner knowing. A knowing that is essential at this time to cultivate. Now we understand this may not seem an easy task, and yet we tell you that it can be as easy as you’d like to make it. Each life scenario you face does have a solution. Recall Kryon’s “Golden Tray.” For every challenge you face, there is a solution. A solution that is a win-win for all concerned. A solution that you may have yet to think of. A solution that provides potentials you may not have thought possible. And the only limiting factor is YOU. And when I say YOU, I mean all the collective thoughts and unconscious agreements you have “collected” these many years, from this lifetime and others. Break the chains! Free your mind of the exact steps you need to take. Instead, just ask, “What is the next step that leads to a win-win for all concerned?” and then trust the impressions you receive. You may hear these impressions. You may see them. You may feel them. You may draw them. You may write them. You may taste them. You may smell them. Whatever method of communication that suits you, listen to your inner guidance and trust the process. Avoid thinking about the “whole picture,” as for many of you this would likely lead to a feeling of overwhelm, which is less useful in moving you forwards. Instead, just focus on your next step, without regard for the ones that follow. Yes, it can be that easy. Again, in human form there is a great tendency to want to make things complicated, lest they not be “right” or “perfect” or “enough.” Somehow in this human existence “complicated” has become enmeshed with the idea of “more valuable”. We encourage you to embrace simplicity. Simplicity only requires the next step. And after you take 1,000 “next steps”, only then look back to see what you have achieved. Many an author has said the same thing about writing: that it just takes one word at a time. And the painter…


Tips to take your next step

I just attended my niece’s high school graduation! Oh, how time flies. On the one hand it seems like yesterday that she was 2 years old and we were drawing pictures, belly-down on the livingroom floor. On the other hand, both of us have had 16 year’s of life experiences go by since then. Wow! Anticipating her graduation, she shared that she felt excited and nervous. Excited about completing such a huge goal and at the same time freaked out about stepping into the “unknown.” I could relate, as I felt the very same thing when I graduated high school many years ago. Having 12+ years of highly structured life and then someone tells you that it’s “over” can be kind of scary! While she has decided she wants to study marine biology (she just LOVES sharks), she also wonders what will happen next. Can you think of a time when you felt the same way? Or perhaps you felt stuck, unsure what was next in life, or not knowing the next step to take? After I got off the phone with my neice, I was thinking about our conversation and then I   started to write. Wondered if you might be interested so thought I’d share… Go with the flow. In each moment, is there a way to “ride the wave” downstream rather than attempt to fight the current of events in your life? When you change your perspective, come from a different place of thinking, change your tune and harmonize with what IS, life can be more magical, more “graceful” as Geoff Hoppe says.  The tendency with the human experience is to want to control every aspect of your creation. You can do this, as you have free will. And we also offer you an alternative: to ride the wave of possibility that is in your NOW. What is happening now that you can take a tiny step forward, such that you feel more joy? IS there a ay in which you can capitalize on your current moment? If you are brushing your teeth, can you take a little step such that even brushing your teeth is just that much more enjoyable? If you take the same route to work everyday, and you generally “tune out”, is there a small action you can take that will increase the joy or pleasure you experience while traveling from your home to work. If you have a job working with people, is there one small thing you can do today that would increase the joy and happiness you experience when you interact with our co-workers and the public? Seemingly small actions like these can have profound impacts on how your day progresses. Start with small experiments and just see what happens. Notice if you feel different. Did the small change leave you singing a different tune at the end of the day? Taking small actions will progressively add up to changes in your life, such that you increase the amount of time you feel joy and passion….
