Often it’s the big sister type people in our lives that we turn to when we don’t know where to start. It’s the thoughtful, compassionate and gentle voice that offers us words and sentiments to slowly sip on. Advice, in the form of guidance, that can help us rise above a situation and shine our own light on it so we can see the lesson and the beauty.
Hear is some 2015 Big Sister advice to tuck into your pocket for 2016:
Don’t panic that the things “not” in your life will matter at the end of the day.
Every morning use the power of your intention to set your compass in the direction of love. When you begin your travels set to love, you may not always see the path but you will always be headed in the right direction.
If it makes your heart sing, make it the time. If it leaves you wanting more, empty your space and allow more in. If it stirs your soul, share that spoon so it will stir others too. If it causes you to catch your breath, exhale out all the excuses and inhale the next deep and full of sweet possibilities. Say no to one day, some day, another day. Say yes to today.
When you look in the mirror, see yourself through loves eyes
Don’t ever apologize for your life. If you have lived in a way in the past that you no longer agree with, spend your energy on making choices now that you will agree with when your head hits the pillow tonight. Don’t waste today on yesterday.
If you speak from the heart, the universe will listen. Doesn’t mean it’s going to do what you think you want, but it will listen and give you what is required.
When deciding what path to take when you want to take every one…Write out each path in an “elevator speech”- a quick spiel you would give someone in two minutes if you were currently conducting each project and they asked what you are up to. Then step back and look at what common first steps may run through each. Take one of those steps that feels right and let the universe light up the path to the next one.
On finding a life mate…Don’t look for a partner who will sweep you off your feet. Find a partner who grounds your soul in love so that it grows and blooms and you have a fertile place to root and discover your own magic.
My greatest wish for you in 2016 is …that you discover courage in life and love; faith in yourself and you are brave enough to know and ask for what you want.
P.S. We all have a big sister inside of us wanting to help us figure out what is best for us. Her voice is soft but her will is strong. Takes some time with her. Pour her a cup of tea and listen to what she has to say.
