We all stumble. It’s part of the learning experience we set for ourselves before our journeys here on Earth. There is always something to learn – even when we find ourselves off our pre-chosen path.
Many times, these lessons are the most important but finding our way back to the truth is equally vital. What are the signs that your soul is living its true path? Here are three benchmarks for you to go by:
1. You feel light. You smile spontaneously and look at the world with fresh eyes, noticing the beauty around you. You feel connected with everyone and everything, and know you are crossing paths with other souls meant to enrich your earthly experience.
On the other hand, signs you are making choices not benefitting your path include frustration, stress, feelings of being smothered, and feeling as if you must walk on eggshells with those around you. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, understand there is something out of balance. These are signs that change must come to restore your inner balance.
Begin to pay attention to how you feel around others and in your surroundings. Despite fear, acknowledge what is harming you and remove it from your life.
2. The world feels magical. You receive signs all around you, and things fall into place effortlessly. When you are following your true path, roadblocks disappear and opportunities chase you around every corner. You put intentions into the Universe, and it responds with speed.
If you are encountering roadblocks, your thoughts are focused on your worries – not your desires. Sit in a quiet place and intentionally let go of all fears and focus solely on what you wish to create in your life. Do not worry about how it will happen. Instead, feel as if it already is.
3. You have unwavering faith. Faith is the key component to the evolution of your soul. Faith must come first, and the joy will naturally follow. How do you know if your faith is strong? The desires for achieving what you want for yourself fades, and you embrace what comes your way. You place your soul’s destiny in the hands of a higher power, knowing that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.
When you embrace the concept of faith, doubt about what is to come slides away. When you have faith and understand its power, fear and doubt present themselves as the illusions they really are.
