I was talking with a friend earlier today and she asked, “what does it feel like when you receive guidance from your Inner Self? Is it very momentous and meaningful?”
I paused for a moment to check in with myself, and replied, “no, it’s more like the feeling when someone asks – would you like some toast? My feeling is yes – but a peaceful yes, because I like toast – but it’s nothing to get too excited about!”
Of course, later on, after I consider the implications of what I’ve said yes to, I often do experience the momentous and meaningful emotions. Every time we accept something new, there’s something old we have to give up.
If I choose to stay in this remote and rural area – I get beauty and solitude and I can see all the stars at night. I give up being able to walk around the corner or drive down the road to pick up take out. And vice versa. If I choose to accept the guidance of Spirit and do an online reading every single day for a year, then it means I don’t get to be lazy or give myself a day off. It means I’ve made a commitment that precludes other commitments.
When I was younger, a number of friends in my spiritual community did have momentous and meaningful experience. Visions, spontaneous healing, deep insights, and guidance toward life-changing decisions. I’ll admit, I was a bit jealous as I plodded along in my spiritual journey. Of course, my sun sign is Taurus so I am more likely to amble – but I also have two grand trines in fire, and I wanted to flame and soar like a dragon.
I want to reassure you that whether you are plodding along or soaring, let that be okay. Your journey is your journey – it isn’t going to be same as anyone else’s. And, it won’t be the same for you from start to … well … there is no finish, it’s infinite and eternal.
This week you are engaging with breathing practice, meditation practice, and candle gazing. The next set of skill practice will be posted on Sunday, February 24th.
