The Next Step In Your Mission When The Time Is Ripe

When you’re done with where you are and are ready for the next stage, I always think of it in my head as Part Two.

I think it comes from the song The Bottom Line:

When you reach the bottom line
The only thing to do is climb
Pick yourself up of the floor
Don’t know what you’re waiting for

Anything you want is yours

Part two – part two
I’m gonna take you to part two, part two…

While it isn’t true that anything, bar none, is yours it is true that certain things are destined for you.

It seems to me that lately there is instant manifestation in certain life areas where everything lines up perfectly.

I want to also say “when you have done your work” but maybe some people don’t need to do nearly as much as others, at least not every time.

Some things require you to dig deep.  Some experiences only come as a huge relief when you have shifted them off your back and can stare them in the face and realize they simply have lost their emotional energy.  You know you have done your work in that area because you now feel neutral.

You feel change coming, don’t you?  When you are about done with one aspect of your life, or a whole attitude, and the next stage awaits.

You learn about yourself through simply living intuitively day to day and feeling it out, like walking in the dark with your hands out in front of you so you (hopefully) don’t walk right into too many walls.

Think of the cliff beneath.  Suppose you are walking in the dark with your hands out, thinking you might bash into something but you forget that there might not always be floor.  Like in a cartoon, you could be about to plummet off the edge of a cliff, straight down.

Wisest to walk with all of your senses heightened, aware of all potentials for plummeting or being bulldozed by a running football player who falls out of bounds in a game you’re not in, or being broadsided or taken out head on by an oncoming car or Mack truck.

You don’t walk through life expecting such a take down, but emotionally speaking, you can walk that territory anytime on an otherwise sunny day.

Beautifully, sometimes you are shocked by a loving, wonderful thing that is simply so unexpected you hadn’t even dreamed of it for yourself.

I was someplace I would rather not be a few days ago, standing in the parking lot and watching the storm roll out.

It was a typical Florida afternoon thunderstorm aftermath and there were massive clouds in the sky.

I was deep in thought and suddenly, the clouds started taking shape.

An angel here, my mother there, and so on.

It was such a beautiful moment because I could read the clouds.  They told a story, for just a few minutes, and when I turned around to respond to my watch telling me I needed to go back inside though I didn’t want to, when I looked back it was all gone.

The feeling was still there, though.  The connection, the joy, the knowing that we are on the right path, that things are coming around to fulfillment, though we may not even be able to define what the dream really is.

We are guided, we are led, we have support all of the time, most commonly from each other though we may not always know it right then.

People are sent to us and we to them for a reason, and when you know this you will embrace the bitter as well as the sweet.

What jams you up and makes you angry is there to be noticed and worked with.

The times when you realize that something or someone just doesn’t push your buttons anymore are the times when you can celebrate, because whether or not you are conscious of it, it means your hard work on that is done.

Be well, everyone – your dreams are truly on their way.  I see you out there working so hard on what matters to you, often a lot of internal work, repetitive patterns coming along for you to take that next step forward, just keep with it.  “All is well” is true, no matter what the circumstances.

Try to go with the flow of what is presented and see what jewels and gems lie within.  Even dirty water settles so that you may see clear to the bottom.  Sometimes even fish swim by, so notice them.

Don’t bang your head too hard.  We don’t want to have to send you to the hospital.

You might just sit with your emotions, no matter how roiling and nasty they may be, and feel those suckers out, don’t send them away.  Simply feel them and bless and acknowledge them – there is nothing wrong with them, you want to embrace here.

Send your love and your jokes and the full weight of your soul and personality out into the world where it is needed very much right now.

It will find its target, some other soul needs you to be fully you right now.

When you find the returning smile, ask what they might offer you as well.  There is quid pro quo in the universe, in the most beautiful ways.
