Weekend Wonderment – Navigating The Narrowest Channel

(Reposted from June 30th)

The path of least resistance isn’t always obvious until you step foot upon it. Oftentimes we agonize over the choices laid out before us, trying to discern between a rock and a hard place but usually between a rock and a hard place is sliver of light, a chink in the armour of reality that we observe as the boarder or boundary between options instead of an option in its own right. Navigating the narrowest channel is simply a matter of taking the brakes off and allowing Source to carry you toward the next set of options.

Take communications between two parties for example. In difficult situations where there appears to be much at stake and neither side is entirely sure of how the other will react to direct approach; face to face negotiation/reconciliation has proven a logistical improbability, convenience, timezones, the rising expectations versus many misunderstandings making phone calls potentially explosive interactions, what does it leave? A narrow channel of creative expression written in the name of universal wisdom (Principle 4: I AM Truth) in hope that the target audience may be paying attention? It might not be a guaranteed option but it is certainly the path of least resistance until such time that another option or opportunity presents itself.

Sometimes that channel becomes so tight though, cutting off parts of the previously available slipstream, that the path of least resistance begins to change direction. In the communication scenario, supposing that the information, however limited it may previously have been, becomes obscured or hidden from view? Less universal and accessible? Communication may slow to a drip or completely unless the embargo is somehow lifted or another way around the obstacles is found.

Perhaps in this case the path of least resistance is to let go completely and accept that all good things come to an end. Source has a plan and when obstacles keep showing up to block your progress maybe it isn’t just another test, maybe it’s a celestial stop sign, like an oracle or omen you cannot read, or a map that doesn’t show north.

For my own journey, currently filled with new learning and potential in many areas, the path of least resistance in others has begun to narrow significantly. Though the slipstream still exists and a miracle is still possible, if the messages cannot get through the magic stops.

I’m optimistic that God will show me a new path, a wider path with increased incoming flow (Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted)… whether that flow will come from the same origin or a new source of inspiration I don’t know, but I’m open to surfing the channel that has least resistance… for too long I’ve been trying to fight against a current that’s been flowing in opposition to my chosen destination but I cannot fight no current at all.

A rock, a hard place, the path of least resistance… what’s your chosen path this weekend?

Saturday Oracle – The Language Of Self-Love

You’ve be been on an inward journey lately, not that those around you will have noticed. This particular spiritual pilgrimage into your most heartfelt hopes and dreams has caused you to reassess, re-evaluate, redefine and refine what you want from the next phase of your life. That sharpening of focus has helped you to understand where you have compromised your own needs, perhaps through the fear of what others may think, or through fear of what might have to be transformed for you to embrace true success.

Success doesn’t look like what you imagine others think it should look like… but you’re assuming you know what others think.

This week’s combination has Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, partnering with the linguistic acuity of the royal blue throat chakra, centering our oracle message on the need to communicate clearly ones own needs.

During the recent period of reflection you may have stumbled upon clarity about the goal but you will also have a greater understanding about the fact that we rarely achieve our dreams alone, and that often a vision of success includes others. The trick is to get everyone on the same page, pulling in the same direction and whatever other cheesy sayings mean working together to achieve the same outcome.

Now the fact that being Self-Full requires you to consider your own needs, has may of us scrambling for cooperation because we somehow mistake Self-Fullness for selfishness, this is wrapped up in a low self-esteem and depleted sense of self-worth. We all deserve to have our needs met. Unfortunately we feel it necessary to skirt around the issues and use subtle manipulation instead of just simply asking, as a result of this egoic deficiency.

Selfishness is expecting your needs to be met at the expense of someone else’s… but what if your needs are mutual? How will you know if your needs are mutual unless you risk being vulnerable and actually state what you really want require or desire?

This week is the time to stop beating around the bush and tell those that matter, that are crucial to your success, whatever that looks like, how important they are in the plan and what you need from them. Then ask them if they are willing to be the yin to your yang or the yang to your yin… you will never know if you don’t ask.

The language of self-love usually starts with “This is how I feel, and this is what I want.” It’s gentle, clear, honest and simple. To get your needs met, everyone relevant needs to know what your needs are.

Happy Self-Full Summit Week… x

 

 

Saturday Oracle – Devoid of All Chattels

Grail Oracle 5Grail Oracle Blue

Imagine for a moment that you were devoid of all chattels… all earthly possessions, status, history, etc. Who would you be?

As the effects of yesterday’s eclipsed full moon in pieces drift away we still have a few days left in Mercury’s retrograde grip before the tight hold on our communicative skills is lifted… but before that happens you are being given a rare opportunity…

Now is the time to say what needs saying, no holds barred, allowing your words to be guided, not by need, or by results, or the expectation that they will pay dividends but because it’s been held within you for fear of loss for so long.

I’m not suggesting for a moment that words don’t have consequences, indeed they are mightier than the proverbial sword, the consequences are not yet written but the result of withholding is and has been all too evident.

Principle 5: I AM Liberated, combined with the royal blue of the throat chakra is charging your oracle this week with final stages of the portal to set yourself free.

Speak with compassion and don’t be afraid of what you might lose, you have far more to gain in your honesty, knowing that what comes was made by your magic and what stays was always meant to be yours. Belongs and status have nothing to do with humanity or wisdom… you matter, as do your thoughts and feelings.

More next week… x
