Do you find yourself in a life situation where the direction is feeling a little foggy, perhaps in a relationship, a health decision or a financial arena? We can make ourselves a little bit crazy getting clear around what path to take.

Often when we find ourselves in a quandary of sorts, we may feel that there are either NO options available to us or perhaps see it as an ‘either this or that’ scenario. That’s when our head is taking over. But when we allow ourselves to quiet the mind and connect with the heart, we open ourselves up to a myriad of possibilities that may never have had room to enter your consciousness. We create a vacuum of sorts that draws in the unexpected and often miraculous.

And while we can learn from the past and envision the future, I believe it is also vital to come into the present moment to allow us to be clear in our choices. Only in the NOW can we truly connect with the energy necessary to move forward.

I’d like to offer a 5 step practice and short audio meditation of this process to help usher in clarity.

1) Breathe. There is nothing like becoming aware of the breath to bring you into the current moment.
2) Surrender. And I don’t mean give up. As C.J. Jung so brilliantly states: “What we resist, persists.” Recognize the futility of denying ‘what is.’
3) Drop into your heart. (The heart always knows what is best for us.)
4) Become the observer. Take a step back from the situation and create space for answers and as you do…
5) Get quiet. Turning down the noise within from this ‘witness’ stance allows for miracles and beautiful synchronicities.

Recently in yoga we were focusing on ‘Ajna’ – the third eye chakra, our seat of perception and command located back behind our physical eyes.

When there is a disconnect between our heart and our third eye, it is like driving around with a broken GPS. You may be moving, but without direction. As we celebrate the day/month that has come to represent love, my wish for you is radiant communion between your heart and your inner ‘GPS.’

And for those times that you feel you are floating around in a void or fog of confusion, here is a poem that may jumpstart the focus of the journey.

Spirit,

Take me beyond – wildly beyond –

my out-dated, antiquated patterns

of thinking and being…

even beyond concepts genuinely believed

to be original and expansive.

Take me to new, untrodden paths

and ways of envisioning.

Allow my journey

to be one of moment by moment

serendipitous unfoldings,

eloquently propelling me out

of my comfort zone

and hamster-wheel paradigm

Into the unexplored.

– Maureen
