“The Goddess always appears with a gift, a magnificent gift. But it’s up to you to undo its wrappings. In this case, to untie the strings that bind your heart you need to follow the Angel of Doubt into your chaos and turmoil to gain the gift of clarity. The Angel of Doubt is an expert at reflecting the truth of your magnificence from within the misty clouds. Through all your mind’s ‘what-ifs’ she will gently guide you to the most advantageous and abundant outcome because the Universe only knows benevolence.
By focusing on the present moment you can slice through the falsehoods and illusions, allowing everything to present itself in divine sequence, one moment at a time, one breath at a time. Within this breath, you have everything you need. Within this breath, overwhelm melts away. Worry begets fear. Trust begets peace of mind. So allow the Angel of Doubt to guide you to your divine peace of mind.
Dear one, it is vital for you to see through the illusions and continue to hold true to all of your personal values, dreams, and positive expectations for they attract the sacred rainbow of colors to your life’s pallet. As you hold that paintbrush in your hand, realize that in order for your magnificent new life to unfold, your antiquated beliefs, thoughts and emotions need to be resolved. Release your grasp and allow the old to diminish on its own accord, recognizing this as a state of expansion, not loss.
Take note of the internal battle between the part of you that desires the new vs. the part that fears the release of the old and questions the validity of your proposals. Accept this as a natural process of new creation co-existing within the energies of the old and have immense compassion for yourself during this phase. Do not deny your feelings of loss, the friendships, goals, dreams nor the material things. Understand that some of the people in your life may continue in dreams you’ve set aside because it may still be their chosen path. However, yours has shifted and these prior dreams no longer hold any value for you.
Many of your current experiences are based in a new reality, not easily understood by others. Despite opposing opinions, continue to hold true to your heart’s yearnings. Cradle them with love for they are still somewhat veiled and fragile. As life itself guides you, continue to embrace them with positive expectations remembering that you are supported in each and every step. Never relinquish your heart’s passions, needs or desires, for this is a time to expand them, not diminish them. This is the time to discover your true magnificence!
Many good things are coming your way. Life is so exhilarating and delightful if you allow it to be. As a child you lived in innocence, embracing the new with excitement and anticipation, fully present in the delight of the divine unfoldment of life. Why not live that way again?”
