Rita asks: Where is my life heading? Am I going in the right direction?
I’m seeing that you are successful in your career, although you may experience time periods when your flow of clients seems to ebb. You’re very social and outgoing. You spend a lot of time tending to the needs of others, especially your immediate and extended family. I’m getting that you are seen as a matriarch. You’re great at planning parties and hosting celebrations. You bring so much joy to others by caring for people when they’re sick and providing counsel for your friends. Your life is rich in many ways, but I can see that you feel like something is missing.
I have been giving readings for so many men and women who feel unsure about whether or not they are fulfilling their highest potential in life. My theory is that we have been called to make a shift and step into our power by fully utilizing our creativity and talents. This shift is occurring to offset the widespread negativity and hate that has recently boiled to the surface of the world.
You are absolutely headed in the right direction because you have already done so much for others in your personal life and career. You completed an important next step, which is honoring yourself by revaluating your life from a place of authenticity.
Although societal gender roles are shifting, many women have been socialized to accommodate others before taking care of themselves. We often ignore our inner voices in the process in order to fulfill our roles as wife and mother. I feel that this applies to you, and you are now awakening to the truth of who you are in this moment. You’ve done a great job of following your bliss in the past in terms of creating a family and career.
As of right now, you need to focus on allowing your inner voice to flow, as she will be your guide. Find an activity that makes you feel happy and centered. I have an image of you playing the flute and/or piano. If that doesn’t resonate, create a quiet, sacred space in your home and listen to music with piano or flute as primary instruments. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and tell yourself that you are safe in exploring your true desires. Ask yourself what you want your life to look like, and free write your answer in a journal that is dedicated to this new phase in your life. Notice the negative thoughts that might pop up as you write, and let them float away. Journaling in general is a very good way for you to process your thoughts and feelings.
Speaking of writing, I see you working on a project that brings you joy. It looks like you are documenting stories about your parents and great-grand parents’ lives. I see you looking at a photo album of old pictures of your family members. Honoring your lineage is an important part of your life’s mission. I’m also hearing that you are a great story teller, and it’s time to put those talents on paper.
I also see that you are a pillar in your community. You are good at taking leadership positions and standing up for just causes. Have you ever thought of running for office, or charring large scale events that benefit society? If so, the angels are providing validation that you should go for it!
Remember that taking care of yourself comes first. You often feel exhausted after taking care of so many people. You MUST create time every day to nurture yourself by meditating, journaling, getting your nails done, or exercising. it would be healthier for you to be more boundaried with people in your life who rely on you more than is necessary. By taking a step back, your loved ones may realize they need to be more self-reliant in solving their own problems.
You are a busy woman and my advice may feel overwhelming. Remember to take everything one step at a time. Choose to work on whatever feels right to you in the moment and remember there is absolutely no rush. Congratulate yourself for all the wonderful things you’ve done in your life so far. Be gentle and loving to yourself as your inner light continues to unfold.
