Soul guidance can feel gentle. So gentle that we could be imagining it – and this is what we tell ourselves when we grow numb to it. One of my biggest challenges on this spiritual path has been staying open to guidance after suffering; it can be hard to separate myself from the pain or to see any purpose in it. In this state, it is nearly impossible to connect with God or the love that is already inside and all around me.
When you are in great need, Spirit can give you a sign so clear that there is no denying a Higher Power, a world beyond this one. I prayed hard and asked for help, and I received such a sign recently. But I had to follow Spirit’s gentle nudge in order to receive it. I followed what seemed like a whim and ended up in exactly the right place at the right time, with the right people. Then my undeniable sign was delivered to me.
We can ask for help and think that our request was ignored, but what really happened was that we didn’t open to receive the answer. Sometimes guidance and communication from beyond do seemingly drop from the sky or come from nowhere, but most of the time, you have to align yourself to receive. You have to take some action. Before I followed my whim, most of me wanted to stay at home in bed or drink. I was mired in a thick depression, a boredom so strong that I found no meaning in anything. My mind tried to tell me, “It will be no point to go there.”
I am glad I did not listen.
Follow your whims. Don’t plan so much – Spirit can’t work with us when we’re rigid. Spirit can’t work with us when we’ve given up, either.
