Everyday my trust in workings of the Divine, the Universe , God, Nature or however you want to call "the intangible", grows stronger. For me that "intangible" is our Universe. Once you open yourself to something beyond what your mind can explain , the Universe responds. Once you start trusting, not intellectually but with your whole being and with your heart, the Universe notices. ALWAYS. WITHOUT FAIL. And when you lose a sense of direction, when you feel you need guidance, the Universe sends something or someone along your way, at the right moment, to nudge you. All you need to do is ASK.
Ask YOUR intangible that you need guidance. ASK your Universe that you don't know what to do.
ASK like you would ask your mother or father - with complete trust that they will listen. ASK like you would ask your friend - with complete confidence that you will not be ridiculed. ASK like you would ask your beloved - with utmost love, authority and knowing that you will be understood.
ASK without fear. ASK without begging. ASK with love. ASK with patience. ASK with complete trust.
All you need to do is JUST ASK.
And then forget about it. Go back to your normal routine. But keep your senses and heart completely open. Because the Universe WILL answer. And the answer will come in a flash of a second, and if you are busy listening to the stories your mind is narrating you will miss it. Keep yourself open to the signs, the synchronicity, the coincidences, the little strange happenings around you. All of it or any of it could be your answer. And when it is the answer, YOU WILL KNOW. It might be the strangest, weirdest thing you ever heard but it will hit you in the right spot. Your mind will tell you are crazy but your heart will feel at peace. You will start feeling excited, joyful and it will just feel right.
And that my friends - will be the beginning of new beginnings :)
P.S - I would like to thank the Universe for blessing our house with a special guest this past week . I needed that long conversation with her , when she shared her experiences, and guided me to ASK the Divine. This blog post is a summary of what the Universe expressed through her and honestly, this is what I needed to hear !
See, I told you, Universe ALWAYS ALWAYS answers :)
One year gone since I started noticing the beauty of the Sun from my office window. Every day I watched Him rise....without fail, without complaints. It did not matter if it was cold, warm or raining. Every day He was different. Someday He was the king, sharing his warmth with everyone and sometimes He was like a child, hiding behind the clouds, just watching us. Such is His mark of strength, of optimism, of commitment. He inspired me, asked me to slow down, told me to admire what is around me. Every morning, I stood by the window, watching Him dance in his own glory. I thanked him everyday. And today I thank Him for the last time. Tomorrow, He will be there, I will not. We will still be the same - looking for each other, smiling at each other. And when he is not looking, I will still be watching Him and thanking Him. Only thing, it will be another beautiful view.
Become an observer of yourself.
Watch your actions and behaviors like you would watch a show – no judgments, no attachments, just pure entertainment.
Rise above your own self to be a witness.
What do you see?
What is left of me….
If you take my name away
If you take my education away
If you take my job, knowledge and skills away
If you cut my credit card and my social security card
If you burn my house, my clothes, my car
If you throw away my shoes, my bags, my phone and every penny I got
What is left of me?
The naked me, the vulnerable me, the open me
The scared me and the courageous me
The compassionate and kind me
The lover me and the beloved me
The powerful yet powerless me
The cheerful and at times cranky me
The me that is trying to live up to the me that you accept
The me that is dying to break away, to break free
The me that is wanting to soar high
What is left of me is the real ME.
I want that ME back….I want that ME back.
the day I said NO to the life I do not want....
I started living the life I really want.
Was it easy? No, it was not.
My ego has had such a strong hold on me for years that it was terrified....it was terrified to no longer be in control of my dreams, my Self, my Spirit and everything that it knows will bring me pure joy. It wanted to instill in me the fear of unknown, to a degree that I succumb to the familiar, to the known, even if it does not serve my higher purpose, even if it provides me the comfort and security at the expense of my Soul.
It started it's usual drama.
But it failed....this time it did. Because this time, my Soul's hunger to find it's path was so strong, so intense, it gave my Self the courage to say NO. That day my Self started to LIVE....that beautiful day I started to LIVE.
No shame, no guilt, no regrets this time!
For anyone out there, who understands what I am saying, take the plunge this time, say NO to your ego....it will all turn out ok!
Artist, Decorator, Dreamer and....still discovering the Self
