How many key life decisions are you forced to make during your life?
Most people don’t like to be forced to make any decisions, let alone the key life-changing decisions. When confronted with a decision they tell themselves things like, “let me think about it,” or “I’ll get back to you later,” or they just don’t decide at all hoping that if they wait long enough it will go away.
The phrase, “not making a decision is a decision,” won’t hold up when it comes to choosing how you’re going to live the rest of your life. The litmus test is, will you choose to live in both the material world and the spiritual world in balance,? … or will you continue to allow the material world to have total control over you?
What you are really being asked to decide is … do you want to live a balanced life “in two worlds,” or continue struggling from living in just the 3-D material world?
The reason you get stuck in the material world is that you run your life on a societal autopilot. Everything you decide is a reactionary response to the lack of time you think you have. But others who are living in two worlds simultaneously have the same amount of time that you have. How do they do it? At one point they decided to stop letting their life be controlled by the autopilot imposed by society. They decided to shut it off and then things got quiet.
The things they used to think they needed to do were gone. Are you a news junkie who constantly monitors what’s going on in the world and is worried about all this unfairness? Are you mad about who’s in office and making the new laws? Are you upset about all the inequities in the world and constantly wondering, “how could I ever make a difference?”
Once you shut off these outside stimuli what you will find is a new level of clarity in the quietness.
You will be able to reconnect with us and ask us what you intended when planning this life – what you need to do and why you need to do it. This is how you reconnect, and as you do you will not only find yourself living in 2 worlds, simultaneously with ease – you will enjoy your life like never before. Living in the spiritual world with the material world, together, at the same time is the balance you have been seeking.
So, what you are really being asked to decide is, “do you want this balance, clarity, and ease in your life, or do you want to continue on autopilot and be forced to battle the storms?
CALL TO ACTION:
- People do not like to be forced to decide, so what will you do to avoid that?
- Living in just this world, people hope that if they postpone a decision an answer will magically appear.
- When that answer doesn’t appear, they hope the decision they need to make will just go away.
HOW IT WORKS: The litmus test occurs when you feel the pressure of being “forced” to decide. This is when you realize your life is on autopilot and that you have been living in just this world. You have been disconnected from your real self and your Spirit Guides. It’s at this moment when it becomes obvious that your life is not in balance. You feel lost and alone.
However, when you are connected you don’t feel the pressure of being forced to decide, even though you see that a decision needs to be made. You don’t panic about having to make the decision. You get quiet and breathe, and let the decision come to you. Now, both worlds are working on it together. This is only possible because you know you are not in this life alone. You are indeed living in two worlds. You are connected.
Take 15 minutes every day to get quiet, breathe, and write in your journal about what you are noticing that is out of the norm. These could be little or large, but they are both taking you to your intended destination. The more you practice this 15 minute time out, the more you will see what’s really going on. You will see what was missing from what used to be your repetitive meaningless life of living on autopilot in just this world. ~ Linda Deir
