Compass: “As long as you orient your compass to True North – the direction of your higher power – you will never be lost.”
“You are entering uncharted territories right now and can expect wonderful new experiences. To stay on the highest path of your destiny, you will need to keep your compass pointed to True North. Only Spirit, or a higher power, can serve this function. Money, property, prestige, romance, and other material achievements can’t help you to find your true path. They are simply things you may experience along the journey.
Know that Spirit is working in your life, so even if you feel lost temporarily, it will be easy o find your way. Have faith and trust, for your compass, with Spirit as True North, will ensure that you will never be lost – even on a starless night when all seems dark.”
When The Compass Card Comes To You As Challenger: “What is your higher power right now? Whatever you constantly focus on long enough becomes your higher power. If you worry about financial insecurity, materialism is your idol; if you obsess over a relationship, that is your god; if you are concerned about your weight or your looks or your status, you have lost your personal power and your way. Nothing but Spirit can be your guiding force. You will never truly find what you seek if these worries and distractions are your constant focus.
Surrender… and shift your compass. Be still and watch as the needle points to True North. Align yourself and you will easily find your way back to where you are meant to be.”
~ By Colette Baron-Reid
What is the guiding force in your life right now? What is your motivation; is it your dreams or your fear of failure? Do you do what you do to prove to the world who you are and what you stand for? Or do you work through creative self expression, oblivious to or in spite of what anyone else may think? Do you want bigger and better and faster and more? Or do you seek peace, balance, comfort and security? Are you at peace with those around you, or do you harbour resentment, anger or frustration? Are you in charge, have you claimed your personal power? Or have you given it over to another, and living as they dictate you must?
All of these questions and more will guide us to realize where we use our focus and intention. Do we follow the rhythms of our bodies, our minds and our spirits? Or do we feel crushed by obligation and responsibility? And if so, how can we change this around so that we can find our joy?
The most challenging shift in perception for us on our physical journey here in this material realm is to understand that all of our love and peace comes from within us. It is always there, like a pilot light, waiting to be lit and brought to blazing flames. It isn’t outside. It isn’t in owning something, no matter what that may be. It is not hidden within someone else, even though it feels so euphoric to be truly loved by another. All those are addictions of a sort, they are projections outside us that we want more and more and more of to fill the void we perceive within.
To truly awaken, to truly find our bliss, we must look within ourselves. This is where the treasure lies. Use your internal compass to navigate the way back to your true authentic self. That is where your journey begins, the healing, the Love, the Light.
This is a brand new month and it is the start of something amazing. Let your compass lead you into uncharted territory. It is time to set sail on your journey within.
