During these breaks in the work week I dive relentlessly into training myself to connect with and decipher information which comes my way. It is quite intense and seems to be growing more forceful.

No one starts out on any journey as a seasoned traveler, or holding absolute clarity of what they are doing. Building skills, in whatever one chooses to spend time with, takes practice and determined steadiness, even when things do not seem clear.
The most sincere path includes being vulnerable, sharing lessons learned along the way and the knowledge gained with others … perhaps assisting another on their own journey.
There comes a time when the ‘old’ must be released in order to make way for the ‘new’. This can be quite difficult, for often the letting go of what is familiar is painful, frightening even. Forward movement cannot be embraced until the past is given wings. Entering uncharted territory is always uncomfortable, but it is also the beauty of life!

Saying no to what compels the soul is damaging to ones sense of freedom. How often do we choose to remain in the gilded cage for fear of flight? Priorities must be clarified and acted on to facilitate progression.
Listen to your heart. What is it that fills you with enthusiasm? Are you honoring that which sparks the inner fire of you, or are you denying it? There may be procrastination going on, that old hook that hinders so many creative explorations.
It is important to be affirmative and focus on what your soul is seeking. Remember, it is you who you will spend the rest of your life with, be happy in what you choose to do with that time.
Often we find our self in circumstance which are quite comfortable. The ‘struggle’ has eased, and although not perfect, we tend to put up with things that are not catering to our highest and greatest good, simply because we do not want to fight any more. There is a problem with that though … true living is a journey of an upward spiral, and relaxing into a situation which does not allow for movement is stagnation.
Life is about continuously rebirthing our self. If we stop doing that, we grow old and tired in the rut we have chosen. Boredom, although seemingly comfortable, does not feed the soul, or help the spirit shine.
