What patterns do you notice about yourself?
Lately, I’ve been noticing how obsessed I can be with making decisions about DOING.
It’s an obsession with the idea of “right” action. Like there’s something I’m MEANT to do. Or that Im SUPPOSED to do.
I even bring this obsession into my spiritual life (otherwise known as my life). For example, I often ask my Higher Self for guidance on what to DO. What to do in my business. What to do with the next block of time. What to write. What to say. What to create.
- What do I do?
- What do I do next?
- What am I supposed to do?
- What am I meant to do?
As it turns out, this do-do-do obsession is some serious do-do.
OK yes, that was groan-worthy (although my Dad would love it) but it’s the TRUTH.
I’m deeply calling into question the whole IDEA of “supposed to”.
Is it really true that there are somethings I’m “supposed to” do? Is is really true there is something I “came here to do”?
To help me figure this out on a day to day basis (as well as guidance for the bigger picture of my life), I often employ automatic writing to access my higher guidance.
My notebooks are filled with Spirit telling me again and again that when it comes to taking action, it’s not what I do but HOW I FEEL that matters.
There may or may not be a divinely ordained purpose or plan for my life when it comes to action. But there certainly is a divinely ordained plan when it comes to feeling.
In fact, I received a transmission on this very topic this morning while automatic writing, and I immediately jumped on here to share it with you.
Because I really want you to get this.
This is what I wrote/received:
Whatever feels easy and joyful is from God and OF God.
It’s less complicated than you’re making it.
The answer will always be joy.
What brings you joy? Do that. And then do it some more.
So here it is again: Spirit telling me that God is in whatever brings me joy.
That’s the answer to all my doing-ness questions: what do I do? What do I do next? What’s my purpose? What am I supposed to do?
The answer is in how I feel, NOT what I do. So when I’m confused about what to do next, I’ll come back to this message. This compass heading.
I will remember to follow joy instead of “supposed to’s”.
The path of joy IS the path I’m “supposed to” be on. THAT’S the “supposed to” I’ve been searching for. It’s joy. It has always been joy!
At the end of the transmission I wrote/received this:
There is a palace waiting for you just outside the gate of your mind. Come play.
Notice the words: Easy. Joyful. Palace. Play.
Joy is holy. Ease is sacred. Play is divine.
And that’s the TRUTH. Now what are you going to do about it?
Love and palaces,
