How do I stay true to my authentic self?
I have since moved back to my mothers house, (2 hours out of the city) taken a solo backpacking trip through Spain for a month and am finishing my manuscript on a book of poetry to be published (subsidy) end of this year.
My question is this: Things seem to be wonderful, except I find myself struggling to honor my path, and still be 'in' the world at the same time. After that great 'big' job, (I now have been unemployed and actively searching for three months) I'm over qualified where I live for many jobs, but still have the 'big' bills especially after the hospital stay. How do I stay true to my authentic self, my path of poetry, school and be able to stay well, with out getting caught up in money matters? How do I make these things happen that I've been blessed by being able to tap into without the support of money? How do I integrate the courage it took to listen to my body, and soul to change my life so drastically, yet still live here on earth harmoniously?
Answer: I strongly suggest you start a regular meditation practice to balance yourself and calm your mind and emotions. When you get very quiet inside on a regular basis you can more readily hear your intuition. Your intuition will guide you about career and energy and health issues. Please get a copy of my book Intuitive Healing and begin practicing the steps I discuss in the book to gain enduring contact with your inner voice. Make 'balance' your mantra and aim to achieve it in your life.
