How to Know if You are on the Right Path

But how do I know if it’s the right thing to do?

First let me say that we do not have to have understanding at the physical level before we move forward.  All that is required of us is that we are willing to take action when we are guided by our intuition or our gut, to do so.

If there is struggle to make things fit, it’s likely that you are missing an important piece of the puzzle.  Do not be disappointed, and don’t give up on the idea just because you have met with some resistance.  But also be open to considering the possibility that you are headed in the wrong direction.

The best thing you can do at times like this is to just get quiet, and in the stillness of your center, seek clarity about what exactly it is you are to do next in order to resolve the conflicting energies.  Sometimes the answer will come immediately, sometimes you will remain uncertain for a while.  It is a process, and clarity will come. But sometimes it comes eventually, not immediately.

Are you feeling restless?  Do you feel you need to be doing something different with your life?  What can you do about it?  Do something.  Eventually you will understand what it is your Spirit has been trying to tell you.

I spent a tremendous amount of energy going to law school because that was how I interpreted my Soul’s guidance at the time.  I ended up not using that degree, but the training has served me well on my spiritual path, so there really are no mistakes, only different ways to get to the same destination.

Be comforted by the understanding  that if you continue to strive to make the best decision in the moment, you will eventually end up where your Soul has intended all along.  And so you got to see some interesting sights along the way.  It only enriched the experience, didn’t it?

Once you find your niche, your calling, your sweet spot, you will know it because your life will open up in ways you cannot imagine.  Will everything begin to just flow smoothly for you?  Probably not.  But you will feel lighter and more alive than you did before.  The struggles will seem not as challenging and the triumphs more glorious.

And it is never too late to experience this.  It is always, in all ways, as you have designed for it to unfold.  Trust yourSelf.

The path you take is made by walking it.
