I got a call from a client/friend yesterday asking if Mercury was in retrograde. I didn't think so but I checked the Astrology calendar to be sure. Nope, not for another month so we shouldn't be feeling any retrograde effects.
"No-show appointments, scarce funds and life kinda sucks... I feel like I'm missing out on something good" was the gist of our conversation in that moment.
So, I did what I always do. I felt into the vibe of her interpretation, asked our guides for some input and the information that came through was similar to what I am seeing with a lot of clients. It shows up in readings and life a lot lately so I'm telling you about it in case you're facing something similar.
You feel light on your face but can't see its source.
You sense a profound shift but it never seems to come.
You have offers of new opportunities that get stuck and don't materialize.
The key word here is YET!
I have heard this state of being labeled as Divine Discontent and I love that term for these feelings.
You can feel the shift coming, the pressure being relieved, the opportunities flooding it. Your spirit inside is feeding you light and optimism and potential.
Oops, you forgot how to listen to that voice.
For many years you've read books, consulted experts, listened to advice from friends or family or co-workers. They tell you what worked for them and you think that if you do it the same way, it will work for you too. Right? Not necessarily. Yes, when their blueprint fits the designs of your life, you can emulate their process and find success. The problem is, you did not get to this place by walking the same path as they did. It is probable that walking their path now not will yield the same satisfaction as what they found.
Step back from the plans, the rules, the organization, the external prototype for a happy life, and listen.
Connect to YOU.
When you feel the Divine Discontent stirring inside, it is because you're shaking free from the external definition of life and beginning the connection with your inner spirit and the divine destiny that is only yours.
If you feel you're missing out, it means you're not listening, you're stifling a vision, you're repressing what you value. Your passions are bubbling up inside and they don't have a vehicle for expression. As a creative being (which all humans are), if you don't create from passion and vision, you create messes. Your creative essence HAS to CREATE. If you are not creating with intention, there will be crisis, drama and issues presented so that you get to use your creativity to solve problems.
Creativity is not about art. It is not about being a good artist or musician or writer. It is about feeling an energy inside you that wants to move through you as an expressions of your life purpose. It could be housekeeping, baking, closing a deal, talking with a lonely neighbor, shoveling snow, raising children, painting a wall, pounding nails, fighting for justice, opening the door for the person behind you... any compelling motivation you feel inside that you can bring to the world is creative expression.
Listening to the direction of your spirit doesn't mean that you have to abandon all that is comfortable and familiar. Your heart-based purpose just wants an audience with you, a dialog, a partnership. There may be some habits, people or accessories that fall away as a result of this connection. What's cool is it is much easier to let them flow away when you're at peace with your heart, your choices and your direction in life.
You can trust the shifts as they come and then watch the magic as it fills the open spaces.
The connection with spirit is not about dramatic, extreme changes. It is subtle. You find yourself calmer, more willing to listen to others, seeing and allowing various points of view and at the same time deeply grounded in knowing who you are and why you are here.
It starts with a moment of connection.
Trust yourself a little more each day.
Ask the Divine Discontent where it will take you ~
Blessed be on your beautiful, creative path.
