I have lived in Utah for 19 years. I still don’t know all the roads and how to get places. I rely on GPS like so many other people do. Sometimes, GPS gets me where I’m going exactly how I expected it to, in exactly the way I expect it to, sometimes GPS takes me down strange roads I have never been, it takes me to my destination in ways I never would have chosen myself. In those moments when everything around me looks unfamiliar and I don’t know where I am, when everything in my mind tells me things don’t add up, and I’m going the wrong way, that I should turn around and start over again on my own, I remind myself that my GPS has this, my GPS has access to maps and satellites and whatever else makes a GPS work (I don’t know all the specifics) things that I don’t have access to, and I remind myself I can trust it. And so I do, and I always end up where I want to be and the quickest route to get there.
Life is a series of experiences and each experience has its own energy, it’s own essence. Some of them are difficult, painful, sorrow filled, deep, dark, heavy, the lowest of lows. Others are easy, happy, joy filled, beautiful, bright, light, the highest of highs. And the rest of the experiences liter the spaces in between.I know them. I know them all. You know them. You know them all. We have experienced them, we have lived them, we are all linked. You are not alone. You are not the only person out there in this world feeling your feelings and experiencing your experiences.
The trick is, sometimes we don’t have a good connection to that internal guidance system. Much like a GPS system on your phone won’t update or track where you are if you do not have a good connection, if we do not have a good connection to our higher power, the universe, our conscious, (whatever you choose to call it – go with what resonates for you), then we are unable to connect with up to date accurate information about where we should go.
Having a weak connection does not mean we should give up. It means we need to strengthen that signal and boost that connection. Check out the list below for some great ways to strengthen that connection and find where it is you want to go, and what it is you want to do.
- Meditation (any Meditation will do).
- Love yourself (seriously, look at yourself in the mirror and say I love you).
- Energy healing (look into it, Chakra Healing, Reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique, Rapid Eye Technology, etc)
- Exercise (yoga, aerobics, and/or strength training – connect with your body)
- Praying (whatever it is you do to talk to your higher power, do it. be candid express all your feelings, dreams, and fears, ask for what you want and expect it).
- Cry (crying is the body’s way of cleansing internally, let the tears flow).
Life is so much sweeter when we let it go. When we trust in the processes to bring us what we want. When we go on the journey and allow our internal GPS, the universe and our higher power to guide us. We will make it to our destination, after all we put our coordinates in before we started this journey, before we began this life we decided what lessons we wanted to learn here. Trust that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Find the lesson and the silver lining in everything and keep on moving forward.
