On my last radio show, a woman was telling me how she felt stuck about her next career move. She didn’t know what to do. I gave her some advice that I’d heard a long time ago which has often resonated with people, namely: “Sometimes you have to live into the answer.”
It’s not uncommon to feel stuck when you don't know which option to take, which direction to go, or which offer is for your highest good. It happens to many people – myself included. We get caught in the trap of feeling that you have to be doing, doing, doing! By contrast, I feel it’s perfectly okay to just be – to pause and reflect for a while – to take stock of what works and what doesn’t.
Another metaphor or saying I often use is: Sometimes it’s the right decision to grab the oars and steer yourself slowly and carefully to a goal or desire. Yet other times it’s also okay to put the oars down and see where the current or river of life takes you. Hence the saying: “Living into the answer.” When I go through such times of feeling a little stuck, I take time out to pray, meditate, and ask synchronicity to help me.
Synchronicities and so-called coincidences are clear signs that the Divine Source is knocking on your door. Sometimes it could be a soft tap - or for those times when you’re not paying attention, it could be a loud bang! Source working through synchronicity can manifest itself in some pretty unique ways. I have my own definition and refer to them as divine nudges.
These are all just signs for you to pause, be open, and pay attention – and most importantly, to acknowledge that the Divine is trying to send you a message. Also, there are people who unexpectedly step into your life through synchronicity. Their influence can put you on a new path, bring to you an alternative understanding, or even change your life altogether.
Synchronicities act as signposts or mile markers, guiding and directing you, or even helping to align you with your personal growth. Notice when you’re being sent such signs, signals, people, patterns, books, articles, etc. I think of them as little gifts. These special gifts help direct you on your path toward your goals, and they also help you follow your soul’s guidance.
Live a Soul-filled life!
"Your soul is constantly sending you messages of healing and guidance in the form of signs and symbols.
Once you learn to recognize these messages, and act on them ... a whole new world will open up for you!"
