Change seems to be happening at an accelerated pace for all of us. These can be scary times if we have the idea that our safety lies outside of ourselves, and if we doubt that everything that happens in our lives is for our Highest Good. Our soul continually directs us into areas of fulfillment and awakening, even if on the surface it doesn’t look like as though that is what’s happening.
There is more spiritual energy on the planet than at any time in history. We begin to align with this energy, creating a “gravitational pull of the soul”, as Dr. Robert Waterman calls it. We notice this call to our awakening in many ways. Sometimes it comes in the form of restlessness or boredom, where the old ways of doing things are no longer satisfying. Sometimes it comes in the form of frustration with our current lives, and a feeling that there “has to be something more.”
Sometimes our soul brings forward situations that seem very traumatic, but are actually designed to “shake us up”, to help us let go of what no longer serves us in order to come into alignment with our higher nature. These situations and people help us chip away at who we think we are in order to get to the soul level.
We are past the point in our evolution where just any life will do. We are stepping forward into our destiny, both globally and individually, and it’s time for our greatness to come forward. We don’t have the luxury of shrinking back in fear of what life holds or doubting what we’re capable of. We don’t have the luxury of staying in negativity and judgment, and staying small. We are being called into the power and grace of our True Nature and to live fully in the essence that is our Soul.
Love, joy, innocence, peace. These are qualities of the soul. This is our true essence and the level where lasting fulfillment is found. When we come from this place, there is nothing stronger. It takes devotion and a certain fearlessness to commit to this level and to live from it. The illusions we’ve created and the pressures of the world are designed to pull us away. We can become discouraged and fall back into old energy patterns, and believe that nothing will ever change for us. All of this is part of our path. It doesn’t matter how many times we get pulled from it. Our soul will always bring us back because that is our destiny and who we truly are.
Trust the path that your Soul places in front of you, and open to the Loving that is present.
