Imagine if you set off on a journey, and your satnav told you to take the wrong turn, and you suddenly find yourself facing a brick wall? Sound familiar? I imagine that scenery resonates with a few of us. Now here is the point of this post, I want you to think about what in this case your course of action would be.
Would you sit in your car and wait for something miraculous to happen which removes the wall so you can proceed as planned?
Would you get out of your car, vent your rage by kicking the wall, turning the air blue with obscenities before crumbling to the floor and allowing your tears to flow as you cry “Why does this always happen to me”?
Would you resign yourself to the fact that you will need to take a U-turn, or even reverse back out of that road entirely before resuming a different one?
I guess as you are reading this, the answer appears to be blatantly obvious, although I imagine one or two of us, might throw in the second option before moving onto the third.
And when you stop and think about it, this pretty much sums up life and some of the frustrations that are thrown our way.Often one of my greatest frustrations as a reader is when I point out to someone that they will need to reverse a little or do a U-turn in order to bring about the changes they desire, only realise that no way are they willing to do this. But when you think about it logically, if the path you are on has too many obstacles blocking the way, you have to consider other options, and this might mean taking a step back, in order to give yourself room to manoeuvre yourself into a better position from which you can go on and reach your goals.
As a reader I don’t come equipped with a magic wand, and having a reading is not like asking to have a spell cast, sometimes you won’t like what you hear; sometimes the options that flow in might not be what you had envisioned. Just because you ask “Is a new love coming my way” or “When is the new job coming” doesn’t necessarily mean your reader will see them. And if this is the case, don’t despair, simply realise that perhaps you are currently facing that brick wall, and that you need to manoeuvre yourself into a slightly different position in life, whether that be physically, mentally or emotionally, (that will depend on your circumstances) and then see if your pathways open up to reveal your heart’s desire.
