Angels & GPS’s

There is a strange and somewhat mysterious energy all around us at the moment, even the light during the day has changed, and the dark during the night seems altered. Everyone seems affected by this energy; even those not usually open to spiritual or ‘higher’ energies.

There is a bubbling undercurrent of anticipation and expectation, but nothing is bursting forth with a notice to say ‘here’s the answer, here’s the solution’. No faeries or light beings are popping up with words of wisdom or guidance.

It is as though we are now standing on the brink of change, at the edge of a precipice wondering whether to cling on for dear life to what we know or whether to let go, to have faith and to trust that all will be well. Neither sounds particularly enticing, after all, what lies on the other side of that precipice? Soft fluffy clouds? Sharp jagged rocks? Hmmmm

We want answers, and we want guidance. In an ideal world, we would be born with a guide book for life in our hands, telling us what to do, when, how etc. Yet we are not. We are born unique and individual souls, and we have to find our own way in life. Of course, there is support from those around us, but at the end of the day, our journey is our own; we walk alone through time, through space and through life.

So, here we find ourselves, on a precipice wondering what on earth to do next. This strange energy is undeniably strong suggesting change is imminent, but still we wait. What are we waiting for? Are we hoping that an angel might pop down with a GPS, map and guide book to tell us what to do next? We may have some wait…

It seems that we have reached one of those times in life where we have to make a choice. We can cling to what we know or we can take a leap of faith into the unknown. Standing still doesn’t seem an option anymore and we need to make a choice. We can never know what lies around the next corner, and we cannot guarantee soft fluffy clouds if we take a leap of faith, but it seems clear that we need to have more belief in ourselves and our gifts, and to know that sometimes we just have to follow our intuition or gut instinct (of course, this intuitive light bulb moment may come in the form of an angel with a GPS, but maybe not for most of us!).

There is no right or wrong decision, the important thing is to make a decision and to accept it. ‘What if’s’ and ‘if only’s’ waste energy and focus, so it is time to re-empower ourselves, to own our choices and to take back the controls.

We can choose to sit and wait for this somewhat mysterious energy to intensify, or we can sit and wait for it to go away, but where’s the learning in that? It is time to realise that we are not powerless, directionless souls just drifting through life waiting for a ‘sign’. Instead we are strong, courageous, amazing, wonderful and incredible souls with choices to make and dreams to fulfil.

These are times of change. Intense, profound and lasting change…
