Let Your Soul Decide When This Journey Ends — Not Your Ego


A conversation with your tribe,
Your soul,
The Universe.

A troubling time can always be reframed by another.

The Dalai Lama’s wise message flashes ever so briefly through your mind, “Never give up.”

“You’ll have to come back and do it all again,” free-thinking friends insist.

The shamans might say, “You are on the verge of a significant breakthrough.”

“So, what?” you reply indigently, even though you hold these beliefs yourself.

“No way am I ever coming back here,” you think, “If I leave, I leave.” You react defiantly, “If I have free will choice here, my free will be even more powerful there, in the comforts of the Celestine home,” you declare angrily, but with eyes full of tears.

Deep down, a part of you knows this is not your truth. The anger and the hurt you feel is really a reaching out…in the hope that another hand will reach back through the darkness…

Because this is what you and everyone else needs. A connection, to feel appreciated, supported, and loved. And if you do reach, and it’s something that must be done, they will reach back. The Universe will see to it, that in some miraculous way someone will be there. Trusting this is your journey that you will and are meant to get through.

They look deeply into your eyes, searching for that spark of divinity they know is your truth. They know deep down — you don’t really want to leave. They say these things to keep you safe from the ego’s destructive influence. Because they love you.

During this time, our love for another becomes more real. It shouldn’t be this way, but sometimes it takes a lot for people to show they care.

What you need to feel is a reflective reminder of a deep, caring love. The reminder that will trigger that spark to love yourself deeply. Your own love, which you are completely deserving of, is where the transformation happens. When you know others care, which they do, offers a courageous reflection to step towards loving yourself.

Meanwhile, the Universe’s unconditional loving perspective of your journey observes your true essence, and your infallible ability to rise above all obstacles.

Having heard your call, waits for a flicker of remembrance, as angels silently breathe, not just beside you, but with you, as one, for you to feel their loving energy to rekindle yours.

But for now, you stopped seeing how lovable you are. You forgot the truth.

The truth of your essence and of the nature of the journey.

Remember, this was a choice of the journey to completely forget all divine truth, to feel this way. For to forget to this degree would enable you to remember the opposite of a profound love for all of it.

“This life is the dream you dreamt of. The gift you asked for. It’s only hard now, but one day it will be easy because of it,” the Universe lovingly reminds. “This is a doorway to amazing dreams here on Earth.”

Whispering, the angels remind you, “If you were to leave, you would see through the eyes of love again. And the incredible adventure that you missed…all the love, smiles, laughter, fun, and the amazing adventure we call life.”

And yes, in all honesty, all that other “not-so-good” stuff too, you’re right. But as more of the love and fun stuff grew in abundance there was less of the not-so-fun stuff to handle. You never know what may happen next. Start believing in miracles again. And be prepared to be amazed by how your life can turn around.

The angels give you a glimpse from behind the illusion…

As you visualize from a completely different perspective of how your life could be from your comfortable hammock in the sky, you know what you immediately start thinking? “I wish I were still there, back on planet Earth. I can see now I was so close to a breakthrough. What was I thinking?” you think to yourself. The truth is, you weren’t in your right mind. Your spiritual vision was blurred by the ego.

You see people grieving for you. You know they will handle it, but…

Now you see there was no need for any of the suffering. Yours or theirs.

If they could have just told you, with the rawest of authenticity, that it’s okay to leave.

For if you had heard those shocking taboo words, you would have heard the voice of their soul, reminding your soul that it’s even more okay for you to stay and work through this with loving support.

Loving reminders start to flood in…

This current life stage is a crucial part of the soul’s growth you are meant to overcome. You really are not supposed to leave. For the Universe wants the very best for you, as we all do. And the best is to keep on evolving no matter what.

For you will realize that the stuff you allow to matter so much, doesn’t have to.

The reason it matters so much is what causes you the grief. It’s that you love and care so much. Too much, my beautiful friend. Which speaks of such incredible depth of who you are.

The world needs more people like you in the world, not less. Because we need you, we love you, and the world wouldn’t be the same without you. And you are too damn important not to be here with us. Our hearts are screaming because the depth of love we feel for you is soulful.

In our humanness, we just forget to tell you that sometimes. As is the Universe’s love. That’s why messages and reminders are infinite. If you will only notice them again.

Loving guides in all forms communicate through your intuition…

So, stay and play with us. You know your soul and heart’s real desire. You’re too great a person to let your ego defeat you like this. Deep down, you know this.

You know that even amidst the chaos you feel. Because you are still divinely connected. You only think you are lost. None of us are ever truly lost or alone.

If you must go, we will understand and love you deeper than ever, but please don’t go.

Cry rivers to cleanse your troubles away. Please stay and see how beautiful it all turns out. Reach out and keep on reaching.

I’ve been there, and look at me now.

I felt just like you. I mean, I can relate to how you feel, truly. Yes, I know you can see the truth in my eyes. Hear it in my voice. You can feel it. The divine power and love that got me through, can get you through too.

Overwhelm is overpowered by a returning calm…

Come on, take my hand. You don’t have to do this alone. That is part of the problem — trying to be too strong for too long. Your reaching out is a courageous act to receive the help you deserve. Speaking volumes to the Universe of your soul’s love for the journey. The Universe feels this, too, and is responding in this instance. To send all the guidance you need, for your human needs to rise above this.

The dark clouds are parting, and the warmth of the sun will brighten your day.

You can start afresh, rise above this, and enjoy life again, just as I have.

I can hear the peacefulness of the ocean calling, we both love so much.

Those rivers of tears you cry to be soothed by the immensity of the ocean’s power.

Imagine being barefoot on the sand now, and the divine smell of the ocean. Or embracing the incredible energy of an ancient forest. Wow — is that a rainbow!? Must be a sign, my dear friend. A sign from the Universe that these words hold truth, as you know they do.

Our love and the Universe’s love for you is deeper than the deepest oceans and as deep as your beautiful soul.

There really is too much to miss, don’t you think? I know you do. Yes, I agree with you, changing how you think will make a huge deal of difference in how you feel — you’re right!

Thinking created these feelings. Thus, thinking can create the feelings that you want, that resonate with your soul. New thoughts are your key to a happier life.

Choose to see you, through the eyes of love. And this moment in time will fade away.

Remember, your soul decides when this journey ends, not your ego.

"She drifted off not in comfort but as an escape. Surely, in her effort to be truly seen, she would be abandoned. Surely, she was destined for a lonely life of wayward journeying and selfish, spiritual questing. In this moment, just now as the lamp burned out and her world had never been so dark, she was so asleep she had no choice but to awaken." —Danielle Dulsky of @wolfwomanwitch #NEWMAGIC #WOLFWOMAN Read more:
