Am I talking about the spiritual divine or the adjective divine? (i.e. Sweetie, that red leather carryon is so divine!)
Well, today’s podcast features a divine guided meditation, and I call it that because it was inspired by the divine (the spiritual version).
I’m currently working through a special course developed by blogger, podcaster, speaker, life coach and reinvention strategist Betsy Pake. The course is called the Infinite Soul Project, and it is basically a lesson on how to live a better, happier life – which if you know anything about me is right up my alley!
Part of the Infinite Soul Project is learning to develop your goals and listen – really listen – to your intuition. Because that intuition is coming from a higher source, whether you call it God, the Universe, Source, your higher self or whatever, those intuitive nudges (or your gut) can lead you to some powerful truths.
One of the truths I’ve discovered is that God/the Universe is always speaking to me. Not in a “Oh, no, she’s hearing voices, put her in a straight jacket” kind of way, but in a natural, understandable manner. I’ll look up into the sky and just see all this beauty and majesty. I mean, look at it! The sky is sheer glory! Especially when it’s blue with some puffy white clouds. When the sun shines down through those clouds I feel like God is smiling at me. 🙂
Another recent example of the divine speaking to me is through this wonderful emailing program developed by Secret teacher Mike Dooley at tut.com. If you go to tut.com and sign up to receive emails, you’ll receive regular messages in your inbox entitled “Notes from the Universe.”
The one I share in this podcast is:
I’d like to remind you, Jeannie, that there’s simply nothing you have to do – there’s no path you can’t walk away from, no person you have to make happy, and you don’t even have to work as hard as you now work – yet still, you can have it all.
Ah, abundance –
My immediate reaction upon reading this was to burst into tears. It was so accurate, so dead on. My greatest struggle with my spiritual journey right now is my professional life.
While I want so much to work from home through my own business, my family’s current finances are such that that’s not quite possible at the moment. My day job not only requires way too many hours a week, it’s also stressful yet unimportant work.
We don’t save lives where I work. Though it’s retail, we don’t even sale essential items like water and toilet paper. It’s just a store with pretty things. Yet the unending duties required for my position are crazy! It’s very draining and demoralizing at times.
And yes, I’ve tried to look at it in a positive light. I’ve vastly improved my attitude about the job itself. The people I work with are very kind and likable for the most part, so I focus as much as I can on that. Still, exhaustion still rears its ugly head, and with it, my doubts and fears.
So I continue on with this blog and podcast. I continue to write. And now, thanks to divine inspiration, I know what the next leg in my journey is beginning to look like. I understand what I need to do for my business and for myself.
And receiving that understanding is a beautiful thing.
