“Busyness is not a reason for not getting other things done. It is an excuse for not claiming your true priorities.”
― Alan Cohen
I seem to be sputtering in this new year.
Maybe it’s the cold weather? Just typing that sentence sounds lame. Honestly, I certainly have it very cushy here in Texas compared to my friends to the North.
What really is the deal?
My best guess is the holidays distracted me and took me off course. At the end of 2017, I was feeling comfortable at my desk. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year opened up easy stories to share. Now, I need to determine where I want to go from here and chart a course. Without a specific goal, I will continue to fumble. It’s time to think about where I go from here.
As I ask for guidance, I share this with you.
“As the old year retires and a new one is born, we commit into the hands of our Creator the happenings of the past year and ask for direction and guidance in the new one. May He grant us His grace, His tranquility, and His wisdom!”
― Peggy Toney Horton, Does God Want Us to Be Happy
Sending you all my love.
I was clearing some space on my desk when I saw my Guide for the Advanced Soul sitting beside my computer. I am always curious about what that little book will tell me. This is the guidance the Universe sent my way:
The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors reflecting their beliefs. So relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth…if we look honestly at our relationships we can see so much about how we have created them. Shakti Gawain
I wish you all love and peace.
Years ago a friend of mine showed me a book she said she consulted daily. The name of the book was, A guide for the Advanced Soul, by Susan Hayward. She handed it to me and told me to open it to any page. What was written on that page, she said, was my guidance for the day.
The book impressed me so much I bought it the next day. I have not found the words I remember reading that night so long ago. The feeling I had while reading them has never left me. I knew that night, down to my very soul, that my life was about to change in a very big way.
What happened, you ask, that made me think something was happening in my life? Something very simple–I went out for lunch–a lunch that had been in the works for months. I finally met that friend of a friend–yes–a blind date. Love at first sight, you say? I have to say, yes. There really is a thing! I was the biggest skeptic in the world until that day. In less than an hour I had become a believer. Twenty five years later, I still believe.
Sometimes we get so caught up in the “stuff” that bombards us all day long we forget to look for the magic. You know, all those unexpected blessing that simply shower down on us at times when we least expect them and often when we need them the most. It’s some powerful stuff, love. Remember that. Do not take it for granted.
Tonight, I have consulted my guide for the advanced soul. Let me share the wisdom found:
Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.
I wish you all peace, love, and a restful night.
