Recently I had an opportunity to travel to Peru for a women’s sacred spiritual retreat. I was reading on FB and saw the event and so I inquired to gather more information. The woman leading the retreat called me and told me the plan and that their group would be leaving in 6 days for Peru. I was excited at the idea of going and Peru was on my vision board as a place I wanted to go to and it’s been a dream of mine to work with a Shaman in the rain forest. So all of this was put in my face! I felt anxiety and a feeling of being rushed and so I told the woman I would research a lil more, meditate and get back to her with my decision in the next two days.
Later that afternoon I researched more about Peru to see what I might be getting myself into. I was concerned about my passport because I recently divorced and changed my name so I wasn’t sure if I could use my old name to travel under. So after sharing publicly on FB my opportunity to go to Peru and having so many say Go for it Tawnya! You should do it Tawnya! Wish I could go with you…I felt too much external pressure and distraction. So I went into a deep stillness meditation to feel my own aligned direction. During my meditation I released the energy completely and asked Source to bring me higher awareness on my most aligned direction. After meditation I felt calm and clear and a sense that if I went I may feel a disappointment in some way. So I asked for further understanding and clarity.
That night I asked Source and my angels to bring me a dream with messages with my aligned direction and I let go. During the night I dreamt about my beloved, our daughter and my son. When I woke up I felt I was needed here close to home at this time. So I trusted and I asked Source for guidance, all day I had things coming up that it was important for me to be there to handle. I had the awareness from Source flow in, that though at one time when I was seeking connection I may have been seduced by such a trip to find connection to Source, I knew better now. I am always connected to Source sitting here at my computer typing to you, walking in the forest, or connecting with wonderful soul sisters. It is not a destination that is needed for connection it is available right here, right now within.
There were a few things about this retreat that didn’t feel aligned with my soul as well. The use of medicinal herbs to connect on a vision quest also just didn’t feel aligned for me. So as I gathered all this valuable awareness, I felt in my heart that though I wanted to go to Peru at some point. I realized that this was not the best aligned time. I felt inspired by this opportunity as I truly am ready to travel and offer Sacred Healing Retreats; however I desire to go with my beloved and or my amazing soul sisters. And I also love to allow tings to flow with ease and grace and not feel rushed. A couple days later an urgent matter came up concerning my son, and I was so glad I was here to assist him and be here for him. Sometimes we can’t see everything in the future but we can feel a sense of illumination for our higher direction if we tune in.
The reason I felt led to share this is this, how often are you given opportunities that need your quick decision? How often do you pause and check in with your higher self for guidance and then trust it? How often do you feel external pressure to make a choice to please others? I felt this experience was powerful and that the sharing of it could be very empowering for others. I have found the wisdom in pausing and feeling my own direction from within, rather than making quick decisions from outer distraction. Think of all the wonderful gifts that await you as you remember to pause and reflect inward for your aligned answers and direction. No one else has your answers and often others will pressure you to make choices from their own needs and desires. So perhaps the wisdom that we can take with us is to always promise ourselves that we will pause and go within for our answers and then make our aligned decisions. Just imagine a world filled with aware human beings that all loved themselves enough to pause, reflect and then choose from their own alignment rather than from fear or external pressure. What a beautiful world this will be. Enjoy Feeling your own way sweet souls. Feel free to write in with your experiences and share how you were protected, or assisted in some way because of your wisdom to pause and tune in.
