An ongoing personal exploration of Divine Guidance and distinguishing between the voice of fear and the voice of love reflecting on the article, How to Distinguish Between Divine Guidance and Fear/Ego/Imagination, on Sir Froggie’s PositiveNews Network .

Today’s pairing is:

Divine Guidance builds things one on top of the other; everything you learn, everything you do, begins to compliment each other and works toward the benefit of yourself, others and your life purpose.
Ego expects you to leap from here to there without any in between preparations.  It tries to jump from start to finish and when you feel that it is impossible, it tells you everything you’ve done is in vain.  It makes you believe everything is unrelated
and a waste of time.

I’m a pretty methodical person. I’m very organized. A Virgo through and through. So, I’m not sure I fall prey to this as much as some might. Then again, I have no patience. So, no doubt, I have a tendency to take unhelpful short-cuts in the name of speed and efficiency from time to time. So maybe that’s how this operates in me.

I do have faith that things are related. I believe in how we develop over time. I started out as a dancer in life. I made it into college as a dance major and then ended up studying education instead. I hated teaching in the public school system, so first, I tried teaching something more fun…creative drama. Then I left teaching to study healing. Then I studied Toltec shamanism and sound healing (and still do). Then I studied coaching. Throughout it all I did a lot of singing/performing. Now I’m an author and editor…and of course, I’m still a teacher. Everything I’ve ever learned does indeed compliment everything else on my path. If I had tried to look at my choices from a logical standpoint, I would have given up long ago thinking I was all over the place, uncommitted, and nuts. In fact, many people in my life thought I was. What a dizzying way of coming full circle! But how perfect!
