You know how it goes right... You wish for something, you pray for it, you practice the universal laws of manifestation and you still wonder why you are stuck? Why things don't go right! Why you keep repeating patterns.
It's taken me a lifetime to truly understand the importance of listening to God.
When I was a child I 'felt' in my heart I had to serve God. I spent countless hours serving in the convent as a child. I thought I was supposed to be a nun.
I had a sense of knowing things that sometimes would frighten me or even the people in my life. Has that happened to you?
I would have vivid dreams showing me situations and things that would happen and I often wondered what am I supposed to do with this information?
I would notice so many "coincidences" in life I often expected them to happen. Ahh Synchronicity!
God speaks to us everyday, in every way. That song that triggers a feeling or memory. That poster someone put up on Facebook that 'speaks to you"
So when you are praying for something in your life, do you remember to give thanks as if it already happened. Do you give gratitude for life in and of itself each day? Do you realize every day is an opportunity to find your purpose and listen to the signs speaking through everything that happens in your day?
Several years ago, I went to a silent yoga retreat. One of the most powerful experiences that happened for me took place in a meditation which eventually created a 'symbol', that I painted. This symbol was to become my road map! But was I going to listen?
In all honesty...not all the time. I kept it in the back of my head. Sometimes it would be hanging on a wall. Sometimes I understood it and other times it was just a symbol. Then one day I hung it on the wall in my bedroom, so I saw it when I woke up and when I went to sleep. It kept me focused!
Then I heard God say "I've given you all your gifts, use them. I've given you purpose and a road map. I've given you a symbol to keep you focused" WOW!
This is one of my many gifts God provided to me. I kept it a secret for a long time. Inspirational messages were provided to me with deeper purpose and meaning. So my friend and I co -created this beautiful deck of cards.
Soon I would hear more messages and I would deny the gift ...for a while.
I was being asked to provide Soul Purpose Readings. WHAT? I don't do readings! God said "You are right, just listen to me and know and speak the truth". So I did and now this gift is helping others know their deeper purpose.
But the story continues and I continue to listen. If I denied this birth right, I would not be serving my purpose.
Do you know your purpose? Yes were are all born to love! But do you know how your purpose plays out in life? Do you notice patterns and situations and ideas that continue to show up? Do you have a gift where you can use your purpose? Do you know what is blocking you?
Then God spoke to me about a year ago!
WOW it was a powerful message! I was in a great financial position and I was being asked to LET IT GO!
Let it go? I thought you brought me to this? I thought it was the answer to my prayers? I struggled in my mind and my heart. I "knew" the message was correct but how would I survive? What do I do to pay my bills? I evaluated this situation on every level. Physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally and everything in between I could not see. I must live in the Integrity of my heart and soul I would hear over and over.
Do you compromise on 'any level' to have the resources you need to 'survive'?
Yes, I let it go and TRUSTED! A huge sigh of relief washed over me. Doorways began to open and I accepted. Yes I accepted help! Help that would be needed to follow the path God has chosen for me! Humble indeed.
Today, I know I am exactly where I need to be. Living my purpose in right order. I know I am being taken care of and that there I things I cannot see, but I know it's working! I give thanks to every one supporting me and loving me on this path.
I began to affirm daily: I am an irresistible magnetic current attracting more of everything I love!
Then God said "it is time"..... Time? Time to take the leap!
You know those dreams you have and sometimes can't imagine what is on the other side because you've never experienced it...it can be scary right?
There's that TRUST again. I have FAITH that I am on the right path. I TRUST that I WILL prosper on all levels and until my time is done on this earth, I will continue to follow my path, serving others and attracting more of what I love.
What seeds have you planted in life? Are you nurturing them to grow or did you allow it to die because you couldn't see anything happening?
Oh you want to know what LEAP I took?
My next book is being published! You were born to love, a blueprint to create a life you love. AND....ta da! A 12 week coaching program that aligns with all God has taught me. I heard God say "Progress, not perfection, Gloria"
What was I waiting for, good grief!? I've been guiding people my entire life, supporting them , coaching and inspiring them. I wanted a 'perfect' program...well girl, it's already perfect when God's hand is in it!
I will attract all those who want more love in their life, promise to guide them on their purpose and continue to do so until my time has shifted me into pure LOVE!
Make the decision today to LISTEN,
TRUST ~ FAITH ~ LOVE, Gloria
Make the decision today to listen!
