22-269 Guidance

Today’s Mandala

“Every time
you don’t follow
your inner guidance,
you feel a loss of energy,
loss of power, a sense of
spiritual deadness.”

— Shakti Gawain

“True guidance
is like a small torch in a dark forest.
It doesn’t show everything once.
But gives enough light
for the next step to be safe.”

— Swami Vivekananda

“Trust your own inner guidance.
Have faith that your steps
are carrying you toward your dreams.
Keep your eyes on the heavens
and believe that your feet
will carry you well.”

— Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Today’s MotD reminds us that we don’t have to go through life alone, we are allowed and encouraged to ask for guidance, either from other people or from the Universe (God, Allah, Source, Light, Guides, Angels, etc). We always have the free will to ignore it or act on it. Regardless it helps to have different perspectives and insights.

Our challenge becomes trusting our own inner guidance system to discern what guidance serves us best and is for the greater good. Gabby Bernstein wrote an article about how to ask for a sign and trust the guidance you receive . She says “You can ask for a sign to guide you toward anything you desire. If you’re unsure about a decision or you simply want to know you’re on the right track, ask for a sign. And don’t get hung up about what your sign should be. Just choose the first thing that comes to your mind.” She reminds us that the Universe (et al) has our backs.

Bottom line: it’s okay to ask for help. Those who can help us will; those who are not able to, will not…the key here is to not take it personally. Also know that guidance can come to us in a variety of ways; be open and aware to any possibility.

“The most difficult thing
I have ever had to do
is follow the guidance
I prayed for.”

— Albert Schweitzer
