Ask a silly question...

"Today is also a day to watch for signs, synchronicities, and coincidences. In every moment, the universe is whispering to you." - Denise Linn

I have a confession to make. Last night I peeked ahead at today. I found out that today at Soul Coaching was about coming up with a mission statement. I have done this before, many times. In fact, I think I have a pretty good idea of what I am supposed to be doing with my life. I am lucky that I know, but that makes it worse that I don't always do it. Sometimes I think that angst is an addiction.

So last night after I brushed my teeth, I looked into the mirror and asked myself what I was doing here. I smiled and went to bed. This morning when I sat down and looked at today's challenges, I remembered asking myself that question and then I remembered one of my dreams. The dream was all about me trying to take a shower, so I picked up my dream book intending to look up 'shower.' As I sat down with the book in my hands, it immediately fell open to the entry for 'washing.' The first word out of my mouth was 'whoa.' I would never have looked up washing, as I assumed the dream was about a shower. (I LOVE it when the universe interferes!)

Well, once again, I got the same message I always get when I ask the universe for a message: get back to working on my book. 'Washing' suggests the cleansing of negative feelings such as despair or self-doubt. "Is it time to clean up your act or perhaps get started on a project you have been postponing?" Yes. Sigh. Thank you!

Later on I will be working on my mission statement, making some art, and catching up on your blogs, but right now I have to listen to the nudges of the universe. When you ask a question, your only job is to listen to the answer. I've been feeling bad about myself because I have this wonderful book I am not working on getting into the world. It's been muddying the waters around all of the other changes I am trying to make. I know I can change that. So that is what I am off to do -

What has been muddying your results? What have you been avoiding? Which page of the book would the Universe open for you?

I am honored to have read your moving and authentic work - you are right to listen and BELIEVE.

Ah yes, when the universe interferes! I can see it waiting there, and then getting impatient and flipping to the right page. Here. Look here.

The universe is so cute sometimes.

The wisdom only comes when we notice it and listen. Sounds like you are.

Oh Megg, I just love your blog! And yes I am uber fortunate to be able to close air week and begin water week on Whidbey Island. That was my thought exactly as I walked on the shore of Puget Sound this morning. The water was choppy and the waves were crashing louder than usual...what a way to welcome water week! At the same time the air was whipping against my face.

It was wonderful and magical. I wish I could define a mission statement for my soul, for my family, for my life. I have a hard time for some reason finding the thoughts that convey what I want my life to be about. I will force myself to work on that this week.

What is your book about?

The Universe really has it all going on, doesn't she? She's able to drop you messages in dreams, in words. She's able to guide you from air to water. The synchronicity is amazing! It must be time for your creative work to take another step on its journey :)

I love how the Universe provides when you're least expecting it. A powerful message in a quiet moment... just beautiful. Blessings x

I like it when the universe interferes as well. :) I've been procrastinating on writing my book too. I feel very powerfully that I am here to tell stories. I'm taking part in NaNoWriMo this month so I'm writing lots and lots and you know something? I feel so much happier! I hope you have a great week coming up for water.

My goodness Meg...

I have spent the last little while catching up on your life through your posts. You are on such an amazing path. You are looking so deeply into the parts of your life that have great meaning for you.
It truly inspires me to go deeper within and ask myself, what do I really want, and how do I want to go about manifesting it?

Thank you for being here, and for being such a bright light.

So much love
xoxo
