THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
Take the Path of Least Resistance, see where it leads you...
Lift me higher oh Lord
Keep me level to the ground
Let me flow low like water dear Lord
Help me to remember my crown
Guide me through the trenches
Pull my feet out of the sinking sand
Let me not forget that I walk in
the glory of your Divine Master plan.
What is your heart telling you? What is it telling you to do? It knows more than you do? It knows before you.
I listen as I listen, I listen as I write, I listen as I speak, what are my words saying back to me? I listen for feelings of resistance. What are my words saying back to me? I feel for what's pulling against me, for what's pushing me. I desire to know the truth, as painful as it may be to face, I need to know because it guides me to what I need to do.
It doesn't matter what other people think you should do, what people may think about you, take no "should-ing," on you. Always remember that you are the one that will live with the consequences of any decisions that you make, so those decisions are yours and yours only to make. I have made decisions based on what people told me I should do, even professionals that I sought out for help, when things didn't go as well, I was the one left living with the consequences.
This is why it is important that our heart is clean and well taken care of, because it is our guide, it tells us clearly our path. Sometimes we don't want to listen to it, because we are afraid. We are scared to make the moves that it is telling us to, it makes sure that we know the truth, even the truth that we turn a blind eye to. Where do you feel resistance?
I was speaking to one of my friends about practicing the 369 method where you write out your manifestations 3 times, then 6 times, and extensively 9 times. I told her that I felt resistance within one of my manifestations as I was writing it. It made me question my choice, my own desire as to "why is there resistance there?" I had to get to the heart of my feelings of resistance within my own words. When we are speaking, we can feel resistance if it's present. In writing words, we can feel resistance in what we're writing if it's there. We can surely feel resistance in listening to another speak, because our heart knows lies. Even if we don't want to believe it, we know when we first hear it, if it is a lie. We can feel resistance inside of us through their words and uncertainty. When we hear the truth later, we know that we heard it before. We remember the feeling that we felt before, the first feeling in our heart in our gut that told us before.
What do you feel? Whatever you feel at any given moment is your true feeling. Feelings are fleeting and they are susceptible to change. However how you feel at any given moment is your truth, it is what it is. How do you know what you're feeling about a particular situation, person, position? Feel into your feelings, and you will feel your truth. Your feelings won't lie to you, they will tell you exactly what you want to do. If you think back to your first feeling about "it," you will notice that it is the same feeling that you have now, whatever "it" is. Even when you try to cover it up with denial of your feelings, they may suppress for a while, but they will come back up to the surface aggressively.
Think of a time where you were faced with a choice, think of how you felt about what you should do, now reflect on what you felt about your choices that you faced. You thought of the scenarios that you faced in all ways and directions. Think of where you are now and your initial feelings when the choice was first presented to you, the feeling that you have now is quite similar to the one you had before.
I have learned to take the path of resistance. I had to practice this, and it is said that practice makes perfect, I continue to listen to where my flow leads me. When did we learn to go against our inner voice? Where did we learn to not trust what our gut was telling us? I had to break the habit of allowing another's voice to rule in my head, that's why I monitor what I listen to, what I watch, especially repeatedly.
I don't push against, no matter how much my mind tells me to. I keep going in the direction that is leading me to good feelings, to more of what I desire. I take initial feelings as guidance from God. I remember my Mother telling me as a child to always go with my first mind. Not going with my first mind has put me in some life drastic changing positions. I consult with God before I make any decisions. When you do this, this practice becomes automatic. God leads the way, and the emotions that come to me, I look at them as protection for me, even if they make me feel uncomfortable, I know that there is a message within them.
What do you want to do? Do you even know what you want to do? Do you have a clear picture in your mind of what you really want to do? What would you do even if you weren't being paid to do it? These are the questions that lead to the purpose of your path.
When someone asks me to do something, to attend something, to go somewhere, I feel inside for the answer. Is there a feeling of resistance there or does it feel flow freeing?
I take the path of least resistance to everything in my life. It doesn't matter what everyone else is doing. It doesn't matter how good it sounds or how it looks to me, I go with my inner feelings. I have a motto that if I have to ponder over something I just don't do it, and it works for me. Because I think, "Why am I even questioning this so much in the first place?" I leave it. Sometimes my mind pokes at me, telling me that I am missing out on something, that I am not making the right choice, but I go inside to feel for the true answer.
I ask God, "what do you want me to do?" "I ask God, "where should I go?" When there is resistance in my sleeping at night, I ask God, "what do you want me to know?" I used to get frustrated when I couldn't sleep at night, now I know that there is a reason for me being awake. There is a message coming from the Divine realm for me. I get answers every time. I call out to God, I listen closely.
Before I go to sleep, if there is any kind of dilemma or problem present, I ask God to sort out the problem before I wake up in the morning, and I will know the answer upon awakening. I speak out to my subconscious mind, "As sure as the sun rises every morning, I know that the answer to my question will rise also."
I stopped doing things that didn't align with my spirit. I stopped talking to people and being in the presence of people who don't align with my spirit. I no longer felt uncomfortable after leaving the presence of certain people because I disengaged. When you know what you want, you don't settle for anything less than it. When you practice loving yourself, you don't settle for anything less than love. Your life changes as drama disappears. Your life improves as you stop hanging out with people who talk badly about you like that's acceptable. You make sure that people come through love if they're coming to you. I bring love so I expect love in return. I don't have time to waste in fear. I don't have time to waste in confusion. My time is worth more than drama, arguments, and participating in things that I don't want to.
Where are you going my love?
Do you know where you're going to?
Are you listening to you?
Do you stop to hear the clues?
I have something to say to you.
Take the path of least resistance.
Do what you tell me to do.
Walk to the beat of my own heart.
And trust what you tell me to do.
Thanks for connecting with me!
Let your heart lead the way, as you journey...
Infinite love to you,
