Have Faith in what you can't see.
You have to place your faith in something you can’t see, you can’t touch and you can’t smell. Something you just know is there- and you have to trust your faith as you begin your journey.
Today I was struggling to write my blog post, so I decided to pull some cards on what I needed to write about- since I was just drawing a blank. I had to laugh at the irony of what two cards came forward; The first card was “Owl Spirit- You see clearly now” and the second card was “Whale Spirit- Trust the great mystery”. The irony was so funny, as they were both talking about seeing, one being able to see, and one trusting in what you can't see.
You see clearly now, but you have to trust what you can’t see.
After I let that soak in for a little bit, I truly began to understand the meaning behind this message.
We can’t foresee every circumstance, clearly navigate every path in our life or really even any part of our path for that matter. Life can change in a moment- and then everything we thought we knew is either gone, wrong or unavailable and we are thrown for a loop. You can see clearly now, you understand there is more to the picture, there is more that you will never be able to see and you must trust that.
Finding my life path.
Over the course of the past few years of my life, I have made some huge changes. Since graduating high school, I always thought I knew exactly where I was going to go what I was going to do and who I was going to walk my life path with.
We had planned everything out, and we knew what we wanted to do.
But one day I decided that wasn’t the path I wanted to truly be on. Mostly because of WHO was on that path with me. So in a moment I abruptly changed my path. I went from having a plan- to having nothing at all. I saw what I needed to see- and I destroyed that path, with absolutely no regrets.
But in doing so- I took away my vision. I took away what I thought I knew about myself, because I had spent my entire adult life with becoming who I was when I was on that life path.
So back to the drawing board I went and it took a while to discover my true self that had been buried since 2006. I began making all these amazing discoveries about myself, my personality and my interests. I found new friends, moved, (three times actually) and found my absolute soul mate in the process.
Finding My Vision
But through it all, as my vision became clearer of God’s intentions of me- the more I stopped searching and began trusting more. Trusting in that, without me having to pry at every moment and peek into my future, that I didn’t have to. Spirit was guiding me and trusting me to listen to their guidance. It’s almost like using the GPS on your phone and only looking ten miles ahead- instead of 500 miles ahead. Trusting that GPS will guide you in the best way possible.
Since I began living my life this way- I can say without a doubt my stress level has hit an all time low. Even through moving 25 hours (And two time zones) from home- I’ve actually kind of enjoyed the experience. With everything that we have seen in the past seven months- I have never been more at peace.
Why is this? Well, a good friend of mine was visiting with me today, and he mentioned “Why worry about the outcome, it’s going to happen whether you worry about it or not”. I could hear my guides snickering saying “He’s right you know”, and I had to laugh.
This is exactly what I have been doing for the past year, and everything has always worked out. I couldn’t believe how much support I was receiving from Spirit as I navigated through my life. And the more Faith I put in God, the more he was there for me.
Trusting the vision.
While I placed my Faith in Spirit and God, I began to notice things not so much happening to me, but happening for me.
Did that mean bad things never happened to me?? ABSOLUTELY NOT!
I had the shittiest time of my life in the Spring of 2019. After my husband moved to West Virginia and I was left in Minnesota to sell the house, it snowed 22 inches in ONE DAY. I was snowed in for over a week waiting for the 6ft tall drift of snow in my yard to vanish…
My horse had colic and almost died, my cat got sick, my dog got sick, I got sick- all while holding down the fort alone in Minnesota.
I had no family near me, I had a few friends but they had lives to live as well… It was a pure struggle. But every day, I knew that this struggle was for my highest intentions, and that Spirit had a plan for me.
Finding my Faith and following it.
Through the struggle, I never stopped believing that there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and all I wanted to do was run to that light, run past the struggle and bypass it all together. But that isn’t how life works. Instead of focusing on the future 6 months out, I decided to focus on the month ahead of me. Break it up into smaller more manageable bites; and it worked!
I’ve never been a very religious person, but I have always been spiritual. So when this all began to truly fall into place, I knew without a doubt this is where my life path was meant to be all along.
It’s ironic that the moment you are giving the grace to see, you are asked not to look and to instead trust.
