i rarely ask for answers as i feel that this is part of my task here - to ask the right questions and look for those answers.
i almost never make requests or ask for manifestations. i believe in being open to possibilities.
but occassionally i ask for confirmation. mostly it comes instantly via my intuition, but sometimes, when a situation has been complex and multi-layered, i ask more specifically.
were my choices right for my journey?
were my actions aligned to Love?
have i done enough to make things right?
have i let go?
did i release ego and learn and grow?
have i sent out enough compassion?
and the universe always answers.
in little and big signs. though usually small gentle nudges. unless it's a terribly wrong turn i've taken, then the answer is nice and deafening.
so this time, the universe said yes...
i had made the right choices
my actions were aligned to Love
i had done enough
i released and learnt and grew
i sent out enough compassion (but there's no limit)
i had not let go enough.... but grew enough to learn more too. so the universe slowed me down and i accepted. and i let go fully. and i learnt even more.
so many wonderfully beautiful treasures have been strewn across my path in way of answers.
one of the many little signs was especially sweet and very tangible. the day after i asked for confirmation a blogger i barely knew sent me a gift. something i had previously admired. something that spoke to me and in my simple words, she knew. even the card... unknown to her, she just happened to choose a card with a tulip, my favourite flower. aaaand, it arrived on my birthday.
and just like that she sends me a two-fold gift. the thing itself (isn't that the sweetest tree?) and, unknowingly, an answer.
yes, keep doing what you're doing.
you are growing.
all is well, the rest is not your concern.
my favourite part? it ripples. when you walk the right path, your benefits ripple out to those that share your life. a friend feels lighter for a time, a partner gives more, another friend finds sudden clarity, a stranger lends a hand, you make a new friend, a friendship is renewed, your child seems joyous, everyone feels loved for a moment or two.
