You’re being pressed by the Universe because it wants you to change your view and move in the direction of your calling for this life. Rather than clinging onto “things” to define who you are, It/God/The Universe wants you to follow your heart. Your heart is a living entity, separate from your mind. It is your soul, your spark of life. When you don’t follow your heart, that spark dwindles or becomes extinguished. As humans, we tend to “settle” into a routine, often not becoming or accomplishing what we were brought into this world to do…rather than risk and go for it! The challenge is…It can take great courage to change direction because there is a fear of suffering loss, rejection or ridicule.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity…You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it is better to listen to what it has to say. That way you will never have to fear an unanticipated blow.”
Please take some time to sit quietly. Stop all the “what ifs” and “I can do it this way to make it work” and listen. What is the desire of your heart for love, your life or your career? Don’t dismiss what you receive. What have you always wanted? Are you walking in it? Are you at peace with yourself and the world around you? If not…do you have the courage to make a change? Taking one step at a time…no matter how slow…rest assured you’re lapping the person on the couch! I encourage you to listen. When you are moving in the direction of your heart’s desire be strong and courageous, walking with a brave heart. © 2012 by Beth Golden PhD ,LLC All Rights Reserved
