Life Preserver

29 Oct

Our lives are filled with all kinds of unexpected experiences. We never know what will happen next or what tomorrow will bring. Sometimes everything rolls out about the way we think it will, and other times we may be overcome by something we never expected. It’s like we’re treading water peacefully and suddenly something comes along and shoves us under. We may panic at first trying to figure out what’s happened and having no idea what to do next. As we grasp for purchase, and hope for air, we may struggle and weave trying to push up and out. In our desperation and confusion, we may pray for someone to come along with a life preserver to save us, and fix the situation so we can breathe. Hard times come to us all and it’s possible someone might come along at just the right moment who can rescue us from our trial and pave the way forward, but those moments are few and far between. Mostly we have to find the way ourselves. We must continue on even when we’re lost and unsure. We may be uncertain we can succeed, and the way forward may be difficult to see. However, the answers will always be there for us, even if we’re under water, even if it’s dark, and even if we’re standing all alone. There will never be a time when we won’t be able to find them, and open the doors that will lead us to success. We don’t need anyone else to save us. We already have everything we need to find the way ourselves. We are stronger and more capable than we may realize and absolutely nothing is powerful enough to hold us down indefinitely. There will always be a way ahead and we will find it.

Everyone has their own opinions about things. When we’re facing a difficult challenge, some may say we should give up, there’s no way we can prevail. Others may be more encouraging and try to advise us and assist. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about our capabilities or how difficult the problem is. We can always find the answers we need to move forward and solve any issue before us. The road is long and as we step forward, the solutions we need will rise and we will find them.

Nobody wants to suffer and when hard times come, instead of facing them head on, we may try to hide from them or pretend they don’t exist. Ignoring a problem will never solve it and trials will not simply disappear because we don’t want to look at them. Everything will remain the same until we decide to address the issue, take it apart, and resolve it. We are intelligent and wise, and there isn’t anything we can’t untangle. We know what we want and will find the road ahead. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage and we will succeed.

Today if something has seriously gone wrong and you have no idea what to do, take a moment to look around and let the answers rise. They are already there for you. You are smart and capable, and can solve any problem you must. Be confident and step forward. The road ahead will open and you will reach your goal. Nothing is beyond your grasp and success is just ahead. Trust yourself. Everything is possible.

Taking the Hint

11 Nov

Inspiration is a very personal experience. Sometimes it comes to us like a nudge to do something a little differently. Or someone says something and we are inspired to look in a new direction. Sometimes we feel a continual prompting to change our course a certain way. When we receive inspiration we have the choice to listen to it or ignore it. If we’re happy with our lives as they are, we may ignore the niggling thoughts that come to mind and just brush them off. But if we’re trying hard to find our way they may take on more importance. Inspiration happens to all of us. If we listen to it, we often find it brings us information we’ve been seeking, and we have more confidence going forward.

When we’re trying to accomplish something that eludes us, and we really want to get through, but we can’t seem to figure it out, it can be very frustrating. Sometimes if we just stop and let our minds rest, inspiration will surface, and we’ll see the problem in a new way. When we’re stressed and busy it can be more difficult to find obscure answers because we’re so focused on the issues of the moment. But if we take time out, and sit still letting our minds wander, sometimes we find the answers we’re looking for. It seems counter productive when we’re pushing hard that the answer might be found by doing nothing, but sometimes that’s how inspiration works.

When we get a thought about a situation we’re working on that seems odd and completely different from where we are, we might ignore it. But sometimes those strange, new ideas that come to us are the perfect solution for what we need. We can think about them, toss them around, perhaps discuss them with others, and consider how they might work. Sometimes those ideas themselves aren’t the answer but looking at them opens up a new thought that leads us to where our real answers lie. We need to be open to everything that comes to mind and see how it might apply. The key to resolving our questions and problems is sometimes found in the tiniest of suggestions. If we keep ourselves available to inspiration, and open to every possibility, we’ll find our answers more quickly and effectively.

Today if you’re stumped and frustrated by a situation you can’t seem to resolve, stop looking for the answer and let yourself reflect on all the many possibilities – even the silly ones – that might open the door. You’ll be surprised at the answers that will come to you. You already know how to solve the problem. You just need to access the information available to you. Let your inspiration work. Listen to it and you’ll figure out the next step.
