Safe and Sane or Basking in the Risk: What Will We Find Along the Way to the Sweet Stuff?

 

It’s been two weeks for me on the traveling now. As I schedule book signings and promotions down the road for my new book, Love Above and Beyond, I wrestle,  as many of us do,  with what is practical and what is the impractical thing I am being asked to do next by the Universe.

I write this blog today because I sense that we are all standing in that place where we are being asked to walk forward, but the path is only slightly illuminated. If we want to feel safe and sane, and if we need for others around us to approve of our lifestyle choices, we wait. We wait for the path to show us clearly where we are headed so we can decide whether we like what we see. And that waiting could and is quite likely to last forever.

For me, maybe for all of us, it is a time to embrace uncertainty, bask in the energy of risk, and know it is ok to not know.

Doing the Best We Can

I think that no matter the specifics of what is being asked of us at any point in our lives, the only thing we are really being asked is to do the best we can.  I think that’s what we are all doing, too. Our best. So every day I wake, meditate and ask,

“What am I to do today?”

Then I get up and do whatever that is. Most times it’s as simple as showing up in every moment light, kind and cheerful. And what I am discovering is that for the most part, it feels pretty good not knowing once we let go of the need to know. In my Love Above and Beyond writings, astral lessons taught me that, like one of those yummy cream filled donuts, in order to get to the sweet stuff in the middle, often we have to make our way through the boring stuff, the tasteless stuff, and sometimes it all falls apart on the way. And even when we think we know what’s coming next, when we plan out everything to support our inner and comfort and happiness, we don’t know. Inevitably, here comes the monkey wrench! The yucky bite! Being OK with not knowing is choosing freedom over bondage. And I say, “Yay for that!”

A New Passage: Walking Before the Path Appears

 

Since I released my book, The Sweet Creamy Stuff in the Middle: Love Above and Beyond, I’ve celebrated with beloved friends and family at book signings in 3 different locations. Together, we celebrated one another and I personally celebrated stepping out into new and more authentic way of being. I have always been intuitive. Since I was a child, I have always traveled into other dimensions of time and space. But my first live reading from Love Above and Beyond on April 23, 2017 in Durango, Colorado, was a real stretch for me. For the first time, I allowed the true me to be revealed publicly and fully.

I read excerpts from the book, telling of my long hidden secret love affair with a man who had left his body in 2007. I called him Daniel. Together, Daniel and I explored what love and sexuality could be without physical bodies to hamper or control us. These public readings changed me, birthing me into a whole new passage of life.  Those attending and other readers have claimed that our story, mine and Daniel’s, has changed them, too, all impacted differently.

Now just 5 months after the book’s release, I am called to take another step. A giant step. My divine guidance has moved me onto the path of promoting this book, and writing another. I am feeling under prepared, but willing.

So I began my physical travels today, September 26, 2017, divested of my physical belongings, in faith that the path will light up before me and that all I need along the way will be provided. In doing this, I am keeping a sacred promise that I made to Daniel and to myself, honoring our experience together.

Most days I am sure and feeling pretty confident. And then there are moments of pure anxiety and freak out.

I am blogging along the way, in hopes that our story and my upcoming journey will bless you, the reader, in some way.

In whatever phase you find yourself in your own spiritual awakening, I would love to hear from you. I know that your wisdom will encourage and strengthen me. That’s what we are meant to be to one another. To love one another above and beyond.

Enjoy the upcoming excerpts and video readings. I will move along in sync with the book passages, You can follow along with the Ebook or hard copy if you’d like. In love, Sandra
