A path is a flowing river, not a fixed destination
A path isn’t a destination, like a spot marked X on the ground. It’s more like a river, winding and turning and constantly flowing. What was your path a decade ago, a year ago, yesterday – may not be your path today.
There is always a common thread.
The common thread is spiritual, so it might not always make obvious sense to your brain.
For example, Kyeli’s path, at different times, has led her toward being a writer, being a surrogate, and being a photographer. Kyeli’s common thread is empowerment. Her writing helps others grow, her surrogacy would have helped alternative families have children, and her photography helps women feel safe and beautiful – which unfolds into empowerment.
There is no One True Path
Since one divine quality can manifest in multifarious ways in the physical world, this means you actually have quite a bit of flexibility in choosing what you actually do on your path. God isn’t a micromanager. As long as you’re expressing your divine gifts in the world, you’ll get a big fat thumbs-up from Spirit.
Your heart’s compass
Since your path is a flowing river, ever-changing, you don’t get a map. But you do get a compass.
The most reliable way to get on your path and stay there is to access divine guidance via your heart’s Compass.
This is a technique that’s hard to explain in words. I teach it in my Pathfinding Program and I’ll also teach it in Pathfinding Class, which is the next class I’ll teach at Spiritual Rollercoaster Academy.
But I don’t want to be a tease, so I’ll share an additional hint that isn’t as reliable as your heart’s Compass, but can still serve as a guidepost that you’re on your path.
Your emotional compass
A hint that you’re on or near your path is when you feel the most
Let me unpack each of those.
That feeling when you lose yourself in what you’re doing, you’re so engrossed that you lose track of time. When you pop your head back up, you feel more energized and alive than you did when you started.
That feeling of doing something meaningful, something that fills you up, something that matters. And to be sure you’re really on your path instead of just a fulfilling-feeling but ultimately fruitless dead end, you want to feel not just fulfilled, but aligned.
Specifically, the fear that what you’re about to do is so big and you are so small that you can’t do it justice and you will just fuck it up completely. Everyone feels this when they are on or near their path.
An infinitely large backpack
Note that your path is NOT when you feel the most
It’s certainly possible to feel safe, secure, and comfortable while on your path, but intrepid Pathfinders will need to upgrade their physical safety, security, and comfort to spiritual safety, security, and comfort.
When you pack your backpack for a journey into the Infinite, you’d better bring along an infinitely large backpack. (;
