During these times of uncertainty in the outside world, look inside your self. Are you feeling uncertain? Are there new energies happening in your life? Are there new feelings and paths of direction to choose from? Have you been listening to your inner sense of self?
Each time we undergo uncertainty in the outer world, like our neighborhood, our society, our nation or our planet, there is a reflection that is being expressed from inside. This means that the internal uncertainty we are feeling within is mirroring back to us through the events taking place outside of ourselves. When you look to the immediate events taking place within your life, can you see a pattern or a common theme? Is there a pattern attempting to get your attention?
These patterns, such as uncertainty and indecision are difficult to dispel. Because we feel uncertain, we have a tendency to hesitate when making decisions, and lack trust in ourselves to choose wisely. Each time I think about this concept I am reminded of the Indiana Jones movie about the Holy Grail. When greed chooses the cup made of gold and highly decorated, death is apparent and rapid. But, when Indiana chooses from his heart and from his inner sense of being and intelligence, the knight says to him, “You have chosen wisely. ”
Choosing wisely means uncovering the inherent patterns that wreak havoc in our internal scales of balance. When one side of the scale outweighs the other, imbalance happens. Locating the imbalance, identifying the piece out of place, then releasing it, bring balance and inner harmony once again.
Uncovering these inherent patterns of imbalance can require assistance at times. When looking inside, we can be deceived by the same old internal voices and arguments we have with ourselves that justify uncomfortable belief systems.
Sometimes we just keep doing it all the old way and keep thinking we are going to get a new outcome- but it never comes. We always get the same kind of result. If you never change the intake, the outcome never changes either. Remember that asking for help is an act of courage and empowerment. Stepping outside of the old ways and family traditions mean taking a leap of faith. Remember that Indiana Jones had to take the leap of faith before he was given the opportunity to choose.
