Update January 17, 2019:
One of the best ways to launch a new year, or anything else for that matter, is to remember and reconnect to the things we appreciate in our lives. The frequencies of gratitude and appreciation are magically powerful. And, they lift our current vibration so we are creating what’s next from a higher frequency.
Access to my divine guidance is one of the many reasons I appreciate my ability to connect to my Akashic Records. That guidance always gives me a higher perspective, enabling me to feel my best no matter what is happening in my life.
I used to think that my Divine Guidance would come in the form of a big book with hundreds of pages and all the details to solve the problem and create the new “whatever” I had asked about. What was “right,” what was “wrong,” who was right and who was wrong, exactly what would work and why — the guidance would be exhaustive.
And, it would be complete, accurate and everlasting.
In other words, Divine Guidance would be the end to all concerns, worries, negative emotions, doubts, misgivings and questions. It would be my personal copy of the Bible or the Torah or the Quran, customized for me, for my challenges and my strengths.
Well, so, now I know that’s not it exactly.
True Divine Guidance
Now I see that Divine Guidance simply lights up the next step or two on the path. And much of what it illuminates, I already suspected. I’m delighted for the affirmation, absolutely. And certainly, I’m grateful. But still, it’s not all the answers all at once like I’d hoped.
Surprisingly, I’m not disappointed in the size of the one-bite portions. I get that they are more easily recognized, taken in and digested.
But I think the most important thing I have come to understand is that Divine Guidance is never going to provide a short cut to spiritual growth. It’s not going to save me from what might feel like a mistake, but actually is an experience that will lead to my spiritual expansion.
That doesn’t mean we are condemned to miserable lives filled with one hard knock after the other — quite the contrary. Divine Guidance always makes life easier, but it doesn’t always start there.
Spiritual Growth & Expansion
As I write this, my Akashic Records are reminding me that the purpose of Divine Guidance is to foster spiritual growth and expansion. Its goal is not to provide all the answers, but to enable us to experience them, to know them, and to create them. And, this guidance knows how we each will best open to, receive and learn from it.
True, sometimes we open to higher levels of consciousness without first having lived experiences that bring on that higher awareness. But when that happens, our lives shift pretty quickly in ways that require us to live up to that heightened consciousness.
In other words, we can either live at the higher frequency first, and then get the information that shows what we’ve learned – or we can start with the “mistakes” that instill the experiences that allow us live at the higher frequency.
Either way we start, whether it’s with the chicken or the egg, it doesn’t matter. We will experience, and therefore become both before the next step of guidance lights up on the path.
And that next step always shows up – eventually – whether we know we know it immediately or not, and regardless of whether we are pleased with the timing. Now, Divine Timing, that’s another story . . .
