Thoughts on Destiny

When you look back over your life, can you identify a defining moment that forever changed your destiny? You know how they say, you can miss a bus and it changes your whole life? This has been stuck in my head all week, have I missed the bus anywhere?

The older we get the more we have to reflect upon, we can now see how our choices defined our destiny. These choices aren't only from when we were young, these are the same choices we choose or do not choose today. Free will allows us to make different choices and change our course. Changing the future, one choice at a time.

What can you choose today that will offer you a more future more aligned with who you have become as opposed to who you were? Take care in making choices that affirm the you of today. The responsibility of creating your future and forming your destiny is yours alone. To blame a person, a job or a parent for your perceived lack is the seductive element of our shadow. It is a choice to perpetuate negative, self-defeating thoughts. It is imperative that the words we speak to ourselves contain the essence of that which we wish to be. Be compassionate with yourself, with your heart.

Release self-blame that choices you made when young have permanently shaped your destiny. You were doing the best you could with the information you had at the time, this is life. I encourage you to revisit one of those defining moments in your past and view it with compassion. If you choose a relationship, or did not choose a relationship and are being tortured emotionally by your choice, know that part of your choice included divine wisdom and therefore was in divine right order. Each choice is rich with possibility for growth and evolution.

The sooner we begin to accept that our guidance supports us in making our choices and decisions, the sooner we can step back into the state of faith. Believe that your life path, your destiny will always bring you back to that which you love, your job is to remain open to the possibility. Take this time to be tender, gentle and loving with yourself and your world will respond accordingly.
