Our Divine Download for October 31, 2020 is Lady Portia/Divine Order with the message "Do what you feel is right. An important lesson is unfolding." from the Keepers of the Light Oracle Cards. This may be a hard one for many of us right now, but, here's some hard truths: everything is exactly as it's meant to be right now. I realize that some of your heads may have just exploded, but it's true. Everything that's happening right now, is happening for a reason. And the cold, harsh truth is that realistically we may never know or understand those reasons. We may not even be capable of understanding something so very layered and complex. We are always divinely supported and everything is happening for our highest and greatest good. Even when it doesn't feel like it. Especially when it doesn't seem like it. So, what can we do, how do we sit with that knowledge when the world feels like a proverbial shit show? Step one: breathe. Big, deep, full body cleansing breaths. In and out. Focused especially on the out breath to let that stuff go. Let it go. Surrender the illusion of control. The truth of the matter is, we don't have any control over pandemics, or national politics, or global economics, or any of the other things that we so often choose to get ourselves worked up over. Like absolutely none. Zero. Zilch. So breathe out the illusion of control. Breathe out your need for the illusion of control. Focus in on what you DO have control over, those things that you can do on a daily basis to effect meaningful change in the direction that you want to go. Pro tip: none of those things can be found scrolling facebook. Take the fast approaching up-coming US election as an example. Ultimately, you have no control over the outcome. Which is a tough pill for many to swallow. But you can control whether or not you choose to exercise your right to vote. And in so doing, you create an energetic ripple that is more powerful than anything you can say or anything you can post which will inspire others to vote as well. You can share your opinions to those who are willing to listen, but you cannot actually change the mind or the opinion of anyone else. But there is a lot that you can choose to do to focus on yourself to create balance and clarity and peace regardless of what happens. Because I will say it again: you cannot control the outcome. When you try to do so, you create a friction or a static that is detrimental to the natural process and the natural order of things. And, more importantly, you create distraction for yourself and keep yourself from walking your most effective path of purpose. So follow your heart, follow your intuition and let it be your guide. But realize that your greatest sphere of influence is that of over your own life and your own choices. Control those things that fall within your own sphere of influence. Breathe out and let go of everything else.
When you are having a hard time disengaging from those things which are not within your sphere of control, or you feel completely out of control in your own life, it is the perfect time for a Back to Basics Reading to get back to the basics of empowering yourself through meaningful action steps and focusing on what you can control in your own life.
