This week, a client asked how to balance surrender (trust) with intentionality (making things happen). During her healing session, the angels provided this wonderful sailing analogy by way of response:
Imagine that you are in a sailboat. The boat is your life. You use intention to turn the wheel/rudder. This steers the vessel in the direction of your goal. Once your coordinates are laid in, you must then surrender control to the wind. You have no control over how much, or in what direction, the wind blows. Your vessel will move, or not move, depending on outside forces. You certainly can, and should, respond to the changes in wind direction. In fact, using the power of the wind to propel your craft will help get you to your goal. During this journey, you may hit a lull, and have to be patient while waiting for the wind to return; or, you may also find yourself in rough and stormy waters. You boat may even be blown ashore. Whatever transpires, your trust in the process is essential. Don’t be in a rush to arrive at your destination. Enjoy the adventure of the journey!
This tells us to have goals in mind, and to aim in their direction, but to be open to whatever comes our way in the process. Have faith in Spirit to guide and assist you, but stay alert for signs, and take action whenever necessary.
