Should I stay or should I go?
Should I leave my job or even change careers?
Should I take the leap and ask her?
Should I get the treatment?
Should I sell the house and downsize?
Should I have a baby?
Should I confess how I feel?
Life is full of tough decisions you can spend years not making. You might think the answer will never appear, but you’d be wrong. Always – 100% of the time – the right answer lies within you, not sometime in the future, but right now.
How Do You Access The Answer?
Somewhere at the core of you, you know – deeply know – what is true for you. It may not be what other people wish was true for you, but that doesn’t change the truth, your truth. Your truth might know you’re gay, even though you’ve been in the closet, pretending to be straight your whole life. Your truth might reveal that you married the wrong person. Your truth might admit to you that you’re an addict who needs help. Your truth might confess that you’re done taking the medication and ready to just let nature take its course. Your truth might bring you face to face with the fact that you spent ten years training for a job you secretly hate. Your truth might tell you that you really don’t want kids, even though you said you did.
Your truth might scare the hell outta you, because the truth doesn’t sugar coat things. It also doesn’t protect you from facing things you’d prefer to avoid.
But – you can trust me on this – your truth always knows the right decision. And it will never, ever lead you astray.
You Can Trust The Truth
You may not believe me, but I absolutely guarantee you that you can always trust the truth. You may not have enough experience aligning your life with your truth to know that this is true, but I promise you it is. Your truth – your real truth – will always be the light that illuminates your path.
What if you don’t know your truth? How can you find it?
This is where your Inner Pilot Light, that 100% radiant, always sparkly piece of divinity that lies within you, comes in. In order to discover what’s true for you in all aspects of your life – your professional life, your relationships, your creative life, your spiritual life, your financial life, your sex life, where you live, your mental and physical health – all you need to do is ask your Inner Pilot Light.
