My schedule miraculously opened up in August, so starting today I’m taking a little road trip north to see my family in Pennsylvania and New York State. As last week began, however, I noticed a little fear and anxiety trying to sneak in. I had concerns about where to stay, where to eat, and how to stay safe and healthy with coronavirus cases still rising in some areas. Despite this break in my schedule and clear guidance from Spirit to the contrary, I started to question taking this journey.
As I pondered these questions on my morning walk, it suddenly occurred to me why I was having these doubts. The voice of fear tricked me into thinking I have to figure out all of these details before I leave. I forgot the most important ingredient of any endeavor…Trust! Why would I think this trip is any different than other areas of my life? I truly believe the Universe has our backs and is always conspiring for our greatest good. (That’s a conspiracy theory I can buy into!) I have experienced over and over again that everything I need will be provided for me as long as I keep making decisions from love. I don’t have to know all the details now.
Once I remembered to trust, peace returned. With peace in my heart, I was able to relax and do my part by reaching out to the remaining friends and family members that I hadn’t contacted yet. Not surprisingly, with love as my guide, everything is falling into place perfectly and I am back to being super excited to see everyone!
In case you are concerned, I have had little to no contact with the outside world for the past 14 days and will take all the necessary precautions while traveling. While I’m gone, I most likely will not be sending out a weekly email, but they will resume once I’m back in Houston. I intend to document my travels and life lessons on Facebook and Instagram, so I hope to see you there.
In the meantime, wherever life takes you, don’t forget to pack the most essential item in your spiritual suitcase…TRUST!
If you are trusting in your own strength, you have every reason to be apprehensive, anxious and fearful.
