The guidance that comes through the pool, changes form to whatever is need for the week. May all that you need for your highest good, be received, and so it is.
“For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you a hope & a future” - Jeremiah 29:11 The Bible.
THE CHALLENGE: Turning pain into wisdom
Rock Climbing requires discipline, wisdom, strength and adaptability. A misstep could have serious consequences. When they practice on lower ground, It can also teach them something about their technique and how they approach their challenges. There is a moment for the person in this story, where they see a pattern that has repeatedly shown itself to them. They have missed it over and over again. Trusting the wrong sources. Time and time again the investment is sour. Each time they’re going to an outside source for advice, which has landed them in some difficult situations. Trust is a word that has lost meaning in their lives. The Challenge for this week is to discover the lies, the deceit, the wrong turns & investments have all given them hidden wisdom. They know now what the wrong choice looks like. They know what it sounds like when someone is cheating them out of what they deserve. They’ve chosen the wrong path, so they can recognize what it looks like going forward!
The Challenge is, will they find the wisdom? When they do, will they boldly change course? The right path doesn’t always look as ideal and easy.
When did you last sit in the quiet, alone for even 3 minutes? When was the time you allowed your mind to settle, the inner chatter to dissipate, and just listened in the quiet, to what you have been trying to say? Are you connecting with Holy Spirit? When we close ourselves off to the noise around us and take time to be still, to listen, we can find that inner guidance we have been missing.
Do you trust the creator with all? All you know isn’t in your control? Are you ready to believe in YOU?
Expressing Who You are:
We are all connected. By our likes, dislikes, hobbies, humor and more. Even so, there is only ONE YOU. Do you know who you are? Have you hidden behind conformity to fit in and not stand out? Maybe you wanted to stand out but only if it was approved of by the ones around you. Now is the time to drop the mask! Be yourself. The world needs you, your unique view of this world, your talents and abilities are a gift. Why not share them with the world? When we use our talents and abilities to bless the world around us, we co-create a much more beautiful space. Believing in yourself believing you have purpose, will grow your intuition stronger.
More than that, enjoy your silly side! When was the last time you had fun just for you? If it’s been a while it may be time to revisit!
A Spiritual Teacher & Lesson
Some questions go beyond where we’ve reached in our understanding. For these, it would be a good idea to seek out a trusted source. Whether that be a Pastor, a Rabbi, a Priest, Priestess, Guru the decision is yours and only you know what is right for you. Wherever your question is coming from, the answer is waiting for you. This story is about trusting yourself. This piece is called “Trusting yourself to know your advisors”. Also, knowing when someone does not have your best interest at heart.
Every choice ahead is an opportunity to trust yourself to make it!
Becoming your biggest fan!
When a parent wants a toddler to try to walk to them, They opens their arms wide and shout “ Come on, you can do it! You can do it! “ and when the toddler makes it, no matter how many times they fall down, the parent wraps their arms around that child proudly. They reaffirm the praise with “ Good baby! I knew you could do it! You’re so smart.” When nurturing your own self worth, are you this gentle?
Don’t forget to be your own encouragement! Look in the mirror and remind yourself, YOU are smart, YOU are capable YOU are ENOUGH. You can do this. Every lesson makes you better. When you believe in yourself, who cares who doubts?
When we fill our own cups, we will not expect the ones around us to do it for us, and therefore, the disappointment that comes from unfair expectations is gone.
HOW DO YOU REALLY FEEL? ( No, really.)
For this story, journaling would be a very healthy outlet for some built up toxicity. Having a positive attitude is a beautiful thing. It doesn’t mean the toxicity of a situation doesn’t exist. It doesn’t mean feelings you don’t want to share with others aren’t there too. Expressing them and reading them, it might surprise you how you really feel. Have you been honest with yourself on you feel? Have you been pretending you don’t feel the way you do?
The one person you should never betray is the one in the mirror, you have to look them in the eye each day.
ASK FOR IT! GET IT!
Asking for what you want right now is going to help you get closer to your goals. Asking is not demanding. What is it that you desire? From your friends, from family, from yourself? Have you been asking for what you need or are you stewing in bitter silence? Do you realize the power you have behind your words?
If you do not ask, you have denied yourself.
Struggling with finding balance between speaking your truth, asking for what you want, and knowing your worth can be tricky. Sometimes the ones around you will not see your vision. Sometimes situations call for not asking, they call for reinforcing your boundaries and reminding them what’s fair. When what you are asking for is a need not a greed, and it’s not being taken seriously. Being assertive is the right choice.If your intuition is telling you it’s important, Don’t back down.
That's what came up from the Pool. May whatever wisdom came through for you that you choose to guide you through the week be for your highest good, may the rest be released back into the pool. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your visit.
Sending love and acceptance from my heart to yours,
