There are no guarantees

We all have moments in life when things seem to be getting off plan and we start getting anxious, we start feeling nervous that we plan something to go this way but instead the universe decided to put something different in our path. A new lesson, a new challenge. Can we adjust? Can we chart our journey differently? Last weekend, I was feeling a little anxious so I decided to get a reading from my trusted Goddess Sister, Lady Yeshe Rabbit. Coming back from Buenos Aires had left me feeling like there was no backup plan and what I once felt was home, it did not feel like home anymore. During the reading, Rabbit told me several things but the one thing that stuck with me the most was when she said "In the end, there are no guarantees, only the present moment, only the now moment." This phrase really resonated with me because as a Virgo, I have a tendency to plan every little detail from now till year 2020 and know what will happen here and there. This way of living is not realistic and it does not take into account that the Universe will play it´s hand and I will need to adjust.

Change is always stressful and our flexibility and adaptability to change play a big part. Many times, we follow the commandments of traditions and culture instead of really looking within and trusting our inner guide to take us to the true north. When we listen to the outside, we tend to lose ourselves instead of finding our authenticity and integrity that lies deep within ourselves. When we make a choice, we are the only ones responsible for that choice. When we look outside for rules and regulations to determine our choices, we are just shifting responsibility and trying to pass the bucket because we really know what´s right or wrong for us. We know what is a deal breaker and what is something we can live with. We know the laws of our land so we don´t need anybody to come and set up new laws for us to abide to. If we were to do that, we would be giving our inherent power away, our birth right, our free will. 

There are times when we have to look within and say... it is what it is.... no black, no white, just a choice from the heart. Change is growth and if we are not growing, we are stagnant, we are dead and that is certain. There are no guarantees - only death and taxes.

Many blessings,
