Follow Your Internal GPS


“Nature guides us through our internal experience of contraction and expansion. When you feel contracted you feel emotions such as upset, angry, anxious, tense, shut down, etc. When you feel expanded you feel happy, excited, open, connected, loving, generous etc.

When you feel expanded, this is Nature’s Way of telling you to go forward, take action, you’re on the right track. When you feel contracted, the Cosmic Guidance System is saying, stop, take a break, look again, reflect.

When you keep going when you feel contracted you are like the toy car. You’ve rammed into a wall, and you keep spinning your wheels, trying to go through the wall instead of turning, getting back on the track, and speeding forward.

When you feel contracted, stop, take a break, and stay open to what is appearing in your life now. You’ll be giving yourself the chance for new ideas, new solutions, and new opportunities to show up. There are only two states: stop and go. When you feel expanded, go forward with gusto.

Traveling the cosmic highway to fulfill your destiny has a lot to do with learning to trust that the universe is created to support you in experiencing ever increasing joy and fulfillment. It means “resigning as general manager of the universe.”
