am aware of being 'uncomfortable' with where I am right now, and at the same time, also being in a place of acceptance that
I am exactly where I am meant to be. There is a sense that this discomfort is here to ensure that I don't fall into complacency,
and therefore avoid settling for anything less than my Calling.
There is also a
strange contentment in being uncomfortable. In knowing that the situation and circumstances I find myself in are not only
temporary, but are also serving a purpose. Here in this place, precariously balanced on that fine line between acceptance
and complacency, I find myself observing. Observing all that feels comfortable and in alignment with joy, my vision and life
purpose, and all that is not in alignment, and yet needs to be right now.
There feels like
there is a well of wisdom and learning available to me, so long as I can continue to stay balanced on that tight-rope line,
my attention firmly held in the moment, my internal compass joyfully aligned.

In all things, remember JOY. I am being constantly reminded to connect to that pure, innocent
essence within myself as the key to being in true alignment on an energy, frequency, and vibrational level. It is in this alignment I innately move in harmony with Natural Law.
living and viewing the world from JOY alignment opens me to trust my choices and decisions more, even if they don’t
make sense on a purely logical level. In JOY alignment I feel what is my next move and removes the anxiety and mind-made chaos
that second guesses intuitive decisions. It places me back in the flow of “In this moment, all is well”
and demonstrates my faith in the Divine, and honoring the call to serve my divine life purpose.
When JOY is present within I open myself to greater
possibilities, to my capacity to see and receive clear direction. Quite simply, I see the world from an unlimited perspective
and feel comfortable in the unknown. And so I remind myself again,
In all things, remember JOY.
never robs tomorrow of its sorrow,
it only saps today of its joy.”

the start of the month I have felt the undertow of change; of not only shifting sands, but also cloudy water all around me.
Caught in the pull of a natural force, I eventually, and willing relinquished my need for control and stopped resisting the
varying currents that were moving me, both internally and externally.
There were times when
I truly felt like I was going to drown in my confusion and uncertainty. My breath so shallow, my connection
to floating in faith was forgotten in the overwhelming waves of my need to know, my need to control. My
thoughts moved like flailing arms reaching to grab anything familiar, even if the choices were outdated and impractical. And
all the while I couldn’t get my bearings, my internal compass spun wildly.
It took exhaustion to
finally bring me to a place of surrender, and in that moment, I floated. As I remembered how to breathe, I accepted the circumstances
I found myself in and I found quiet in the mind-made chaos. The spinning compass began to slow and I watched as it pointed
to the calm space deep within me. Stillness.
“In the midst
of movement and chaos,
keep stillness inside you.”

are on the way.
Here it is again, a standstill and uncertainty when what I really want, is clarity
and movement. I’ve been here before, many times, and I know that there is nothing I can do to force the next step, to
move things along. But oh how I want to know! To move!
My life, my decisions, are guided by the
wisdom of my intuition. Often, that advice, the directions and the choices do not appear to be practical, but they always
end up creating a magical adventure that with time, and hindsight, show a map of a life that I couldn’t possibly have
envisioned. When I listen and act on my intuition, and invite the magical, the Universe turns up like a Fairy Godmother, converting
my smaller choices into inspirational synchronicities. But it always seems there are times when my request
for direction returns the answer to simply be still, silent and present with non-action.
In those times,
I am challenged to breathe more deeply, connect more deeply in the moment, surrender control, embrace faith and allow
myself to Be still, while my intuition awaits instructions from the Universe.
