I said on a podcast once "clarity comes everytime you ask..." There's a particular question I've been grappling with for quite some time. My process is to ask, wait, reflect, and explore... and if it doesn't come right away, I've learned I need to step away and give it space. I hold the question lightly, so it knows I'm ready to receive the answer when the answer is ready to present itself. Holding it lightly, remaining curious, but NOT forcing the response. The minute I try to force an answer, it's gone.
So I've been holding this question for awhile now, periodically asking again so it knows I still want to hear the answer. Each time I've asked, I get another hint, another layer of clarity.
This morning I had a HUGE insight... dots connected in a way that they hadn't before. Upon seeing this insight, I immediately felt sadness, then I felt a little angry, but then, once the truth fully settled in, I experienced an overwhelming sense of peace, then joy.
That's often the journey... twisty and turny... it can be challenging, and sometimes is messy. With the important questions, we need to be patient and willing to hang in there, allowing things unfold as they are meant to. Trusting that we will receive what we need when we need it. Flowing with the energy, embracing the process, and allowing the truth, when it comes to settle in.
