The Universe is calling you.
Some say that the universe will conspire to lift you up into your place. It will find a way of getting you where you are supposed to be in life - in career and in love. The universe is so powerful at manifesting you, that it will do this without your even asking for it.
I decided that it must be even better if you act as a co-conspirator by being open to nudges and hints along your journey and actually invite them to come.
So, every night, as I am falling asleep, I ask the universe to help me to do more of what I am supposed to be doing - what I am meant to be doing. And in all honesty, I am not sure if this actually leads to anything, but I feel that it can’t hurt. We are all just making our way through the woods grabbing on to whatever is within our grasp.
I feel a little bit like our new dog, Lucy, following a scent - undetectable to me - but still very real to her sensitive nose. With her nose to the ground, she faithfully follows an invisible scent that may lead to a bunny or a deer, or it may lead to nothing.
Are there scents - trails that they universe leaves for us? Do our creative endeavors come to us as whiffs of inspiration that we follow until we discover a dream project? Or, do we at times lose a scent, get distracted, and walk away?
Sometimes I feel like I am following the next thing, the smelliest scent, but I have no idea what the larger picture looks like - will the scent lead to anything, am I supposed to be on this path? I guess I keep moving looking for the next scent and hope that it leads me to a bunny, or a deer, or a squirrel!
Do you feel nudges from the universe? What are they like?
