How to Navigate Your Life
The following angelic advice uses the analogy of sailing to explain how to balance surrender (trust) with intentionality (making things happen):
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.
Archangel Michael is a powerful protector. He works closely with humanity, and wants us to be safe and strong. Here is some guidance from him to help you on your path.
- Be more discerning where others are concerned. Just because someone claims to be altruistic doesn’t mean they are not personally motivated. Everyone has a personal agenda (even the angels).
- You have impeccable senses. Heed them. Do not allow someone else to dilute your wisdom simply because you detected something that they did not.
- Do not allow anyone else to define how you feel about yourself. No one knows exactly how you feel, so they are not qualified to judge you.
- Stop allowing others’ opinions of you to supplant your own impressions of yourself. When you let other people define you, you leave yourself completely vulnerable. In particular, do not listen to people who you know to be discordant (translation: out of sync with your heart and soul).
Take More Chances
- At the end of your life on Earth, you will perform your life review, and you alone will decide if your life fulfilled your expectations.
- The parts of your life that cause you pain and discomfort are not failures or mistakes. You cannot recognize that a certain course of action is wrong for you until you take it. Once you see that it was wrong, you have learned a lesson. Mistakes, therefore, are simply lessons.
- It’s imperative that you continue to try new things so that you afford your soul every opportunity to learn.
- People who spend their life avoiding mistakes are the ones who are not living up to their soul’s expectations. They will be greatly disappointed when they perform their life review.
