On this journey of mine, I hope to make as many stops along the way as possible. Stops that allow me to absorb knowledge, and understand different perspectives. To see things from another’s point of view. This journey is a beautiful one. I started out probably overly anxious to get to my destination (enlightenment). I believed that reaching my destination, becoming a better clairvoyant/medium was the actual intent and ultimately would be the success of my journey. What I have learned however; is the journey is the beautiful part. The journey, is the destination. This beautiful destination of enlightenment is so much more then a final destination. I have begun to see that learning, truly learning, is, what makes us and keeps us enlightened.
I have finally come to a point on my path where I can sit and for short periods of time, think of nothing. This is a great rest sop for me. While here I need to practice, feel what this space is like, when I am ready then I will move on. I am still learning, still observing, nothing mastered but a newfound trust in what I see, feel, or hear. I may not always be able to explain it, but I am becoming better at accepting that.
I have learned to stop and take notice and much more aware of the signs I am offered. I am awakening. The fog is starting to clear from my energy field. The pollution from years of programming and fear are starting to thin. The veil is beginning to lift, and the fear is subsiding. Somedays are still much easier to understand, but I have learned that those days that are harder to get through are the ones with the biggest messages for me. Understanding this is the first step.
This last year I have really begun to open myself up to the different modalities. I have been working on using my Reiki more for personal energy clearing and to help me hold my space. I started to branch out and listen more to others speak on their gifts, and talents. I have really enjoyed learning the Dynamind theory as well as reading more on EFT. All while on this amazing journey.
Then today, I had a beautiful (and highly effective) massage. This massage was incredibly grounding as well as spiritual the therapist was certified in many techniques such as Reiki, Healing Touch as well as a certified Oneness Coach to name a few. My massage included a Oneness blessing which left me with a feeling of love and comfort. At one point during my massage (a particular painful area) I was having a hard time breathing through it, when one of my guides showed up. My shaman guide. He was there at our rock, and kept me focused through my breath. It was a very beautiful experience. I am looking forward to reading more on this modality, and learning its origin as well as more of its intent.
Through our journeys our destinations may change, and new lessons may appear, the joy however is in knowing the opportunities we are presented with along the way are endless.
Stop where you are and look again at the journey you are on. Are you enjoying your journey, do you need to take a detour? Get off the beaten path? When your said destination arrives, will you truly be where you want to be?
October is a great month for reflection. I hope you are enjoying your journey.
