Last weekend I had the pleasure of taking a day to myself and heading to Sacramento. I left at 5 in the morning, in order to get a last minute spot at the Abraham-Hicks seminar. Thankfully, they had allotted more space for last-minute participants like myself, and my early arrival granted me one of the best seats in the house.
The reason I was attending this event was to gain some clarity about the next steps of my life. There are many cogs in the wheel currently, and it's my goal that these moving parts work together so that my--and my husband's--bigger picture goals can fall into place. This includes our place of location, shifts in occupation, and redefining relationships with family members.
Now, let me back up just a moment. Because of these changes, I haven't been sleeping. Me! Of all people!! Seriously, I sleep like the dead and love to get a solid 9 hours in this winter time of hibernation. Over the past week, I've been averaging 5. In the wee hours of Thursday morning, I had a thought--"I wonder when the Abraham-Hicks crew is coming to Sacramento?" Instantly, I checked on my phone and saw it was in two-days time. Perfect!
I waited to chat with my husband--and make sure we didn't have plans before booking my seat. However, by the time I talked with him, the tickets sold out. Thus, the last minute drive hoping to get a seat. On the way down in the dark, just as the dawn light was creeping over the Sierra Nevada Mountains to my left, the sun's light hit the jet trail of a plane about to land at the Sacramento airport. This left a bold streak of gold and mandarin, like a rainbow, across the highway for about 20 minutes. It was like another sign that I was meant to be at this seminar.
I think it's because of my meditation and decision to be present in life, that I could connect to something as odd as a light in the sky to know all is well. But, despite my time in stillness and practicing observation of life through my yoga practice, I still felt a bit unsettled about the decisions I have to make (and truth be told, there is still a bit of that uneasiness in the pit of my belly, still, as the process is unfolding).
As the morning wore on, I could feel my inner questions being answered. I could feel a clarity out of the confusion within my heart. And I could sense a confidence growing in the decisions I'm about to make. Best of all, I had a renewed sense of connection with my spirit, reminding me that everything is working out just fine for me.
The overarching takeaway from the day: Take the path of least resistance.
It's my goal, over the next few weeks through my social media channels, such as Instagram and Facebook, to share some of the insights that help us to take the path of least resistance. There are some powerful reminders that change doesn't always have to be big or challenging, but it can be fun and adventuresome.
These small nuggets of wisdom, that when applied in the small moments of life, can lead to big changes. Or, more importantly, they can help us align with the best version of ourselves to step into the newness of life with grace, purpose, and ease.
So, here's the tidbit I'm keeping in mind today. Notice how you feel when you ponder this thought, and use it as a guidepost for decision-making today.
I know that no big changes need to happen at this moment, and I have all the power I need to make a small change in this moment that can align with my larger dreams.
That being said, I am going to choose to take care of my body by filling up my water bottle and carry it with me throughout the day. Something as simple as hydration is never overrated :) What small, easy changes are you going to invite into your day?
