On Friday a client called to tell me she had just done the meditation I shared with my community (“Discovering Your Soul’s Deepest Desire”) and she could no longer look away from the truth.
Her soul had been whispering to her for a while. She could feel it but she could never really hear what her soul was saying. But on Friday she heard the call loud and clear.
The time had come for her to finally write a book she had talked about since I met her. It is a book about joy and pain, love and loss. The story is beautiful. It needs to be told.
Of course, as is the case with our soul work, the Divine had been sending her other messages to write the book for a while. Friends and colleagues recently started asking her when she was going to write a book (completely out of the blue). It seems everywhere she turned she was seeing blog posts and programs on “how to write a book.”
But until Friday she ignored the signs. She told herself she’d write the book “when she had time,” which, of course, never came.
Then during the meditation her soul said simply “write.”
She sat down right then and wrote. She wrote for an hour and managed to eek out 300 words. It felt hard she said. It didn’t flow at all. But miraculously when she was done she felt a rush of joy pulse through her body.
The reason she called was that she wanted me to know that my repetitive reminders to “just do the step in front of you” had finally sunk in. She realized she had always stopped herself from writing because she couldn’t see the whole path to getting the book published.
But in that meditation she realized she didn’t need to see the whole path. She was just being given the step in front of her and that was all she needed.
She was in tears. “Patty, I finally feel like I’m back on my path. For the longest time I’ve been doing my work and yet feeling like something was missing. I stopped really listening to my soul and now that I am listening to my soul again it feels SO GOOD!”
I’m so happy for her. I have been there so many times. I know that feeling – like something is ready to emerge but I’m not ready or willing to look at it. That is a hard place to be because our soul is offering us the path to our own joy, peace and abundance but our fear is keeping us stuck.
I don’t want you stuck. I want you moving boldly in the direction of your soul’s beckoning. It was the reason I sent you that meditation on Friday. It is also the main focus of my New Year Retreat this Friday, February 2.
If you are in the area, I’d love for you to join me! It is going to be a magical day of love and getting-un-stuckness. I’ll be calling in your Guides and Angels who really do power up both the love AND the getting-un-stuckness.
If you want to join us you can register here.
And if you aren’t local but would love my support on hearing your soul’s beckoning and making a plan that will allow you to create what you are meant to create this year, just reply back to this email and I’ll see what I can do.
Remember, you only need to take the very next step in front of you. You don’t need (and will rarely receive) the whole plan. Following your soul’s guidance is an act of faith and trust. It is also an act that yields more love, joy and abundance than you could possibly imagine!
Take that first step!
