When the winds of change blow across the land, dust may blow up before your eyes, making it difficult to find your way. Old ways may disappear and new ways need to be found. This is the time to move into faith, into a complete belief that guidance is there for you and that love still flows endlessly.
The shelter from the winds of change is found only within each moment. It is not found in the old ways and the old plans. It is certainly not found by clinging to what was and shedding tears over your dashed plans and hopes. It is found in embracing what is by going completely into this moment and this moment only and seeking guidance here.
Every morning, do this. Set aside time to be alone for at least 15 minutes, alone and peaceful, undisturbed, with pen and paper nearby.
Breathe down into a quiet place. If you have fear and doubt clinging to you, invite an angel to come and pour the waters of love over you, washing you clean of all fears over the future and all blame and regrets over the past. Ask her to wash away your doubts and bring you completely into belief, a deep belief that you are capable of accessing the answers you need, the guidance that will lead you into peace and yes, even joy. Feel the angel's love washing you clean.
Clear your mind of old expectations and intentions, for they contain the energy of what was. Wash it all away in the angel's pouring love, so that you may open to new ways of thinking and being that you have never dreamt of.
And now, ask a question that is completely open-ended, that can invite even an answer you have never contemplated. Ask simply, "How shall I focus my time today?"
And then write down the very first things that come to you in response, whatever pops into your mind. Write down what you see and feel as well as what you hear.
If it is unclear or doesn't make sense at the moment, just write it down and set it aside. When you come back to it later, it will make more sense. Do not push and probe. Just let it be.
If you do understand what you received, then your task is simple: follow the advice you have been given. If you cannot focus all of your time in this way, then just do what you can. But do it. Follow it. Every day, without fail, spend at least some portion of your day focused in the direction you are given.
This is where the answers lie, right here in this moment, in your intuition and your spirit.
Who you are is known. Your talents and skills are known. The deepest desires of your heart are known. And all of this is taken into account, along with information about everything else that is going on around you, in coming up with the simple guidance you receive when you ask your question: "How shall I focus my time today?"
If the guidance requires great courage of you, be glad. This is an excellent sign that you are on the right path, that you have heard and understood truly. For our paths are meant to challenge us, to allow us to show who we are, what we are made of and what truly matters to us.
Allow yourself to be led. You are deeply loved, right now, exactly as you are. You are cared for. You are guided. Just ask and you will receive all the guidance you require to deal with the world as it is.
