“True morality consists not in following the beaten track, but in finding the true path for ourselves, and fearlessly following it.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Continuing yesterday’s focus, here are three more clues to validate that you’re on your chosen path, as well as some hints that you may be deviating from it and working against both flow and forward progress.
You play, have fun and see the humor in everything. You find delight in everything that crosses your path. You are passionate about how you cross the paths of others while honoring how you can share your unique message, mission and gifts with them. You look forward to your work and how you are contributing to the betterment of others. When the unexpected happens, you are curious and in awe of the mystery it presents.
You are stressed by the unexpected and fearful of what you don’t know. You don’t trust other people and especially their intentions. You feel protective and defensive of your reality for your experiences and your life. You seek control, understanding, and act to get what you want, even if it’s taken from others.
You allow each day and situation to flow. You are confident that all that is wanted for you will flow to you if you are open to receiving it. You know that elaborate plans and myriad goals interfere with flow and move you into an “efforting” agenda. You trust yourself and who you are being to join the flow and allow your life to unfold to be adventurous and inspiring.
You believe the more you plan and the more you do, the more you can get. You are intense and easily disappointed when what you want doesn’t show up as you wanted and when. You blame yourself, others, and the world for denying you or causing your issues and problems. Complaining, criticizing, and judging keep you feeling justified for how you feel.
You have strong boundaries to protect your time, space, energy, money and joy. You know to whom, what, and how much of each of these areas you will share. You also give time, space, and energy each day to caring for your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Your body shows evidence of chronic stress. You worry about your health and fear what could happen to you and your health. You are resentful that people don’t respect your boundaries and demand and take your time, space, energy, money and joy. You feel overwhelmed and drained by it all and guilty that you can’t give or don’t want to give more.
When you’re on your intended path, these and the previously shared clues keep reminding you that your life is on track. The hints are like road signs that say not this way, get back on the path. Beacons or signs exist in every moment. Which ones are you seeing right now?
