Have you ever heard the saying 'that your life is always whispering to you?' If you're a fan of Oprah, like I am, then you have definitely heard her talk about it before. It's also a philosophy that I believe in because I have witnessed it happen in my own life and in the lives of my closest friends and family.
We all go through speed bumps in which we find ourselves seeking answers - maybe to a higher power or through other self help development avenues. One thing I know for sure is that your life is always giving you signals and clues as to what might be appearing around the next bend. If you can practice getting in-tune with these little whispers, you can get better at navigating the curves ahead.
Here are just 3 ways that your life might be trying to tell you - 'iceberg, straight ahead!'
1. You’re forced to deal with past hurts.
Often times, experiences in our lives have a way of following us even when we think we have healed or moved on. Yet the truth is, we can sometimes burry our feelings and never really deal with the pain. If an old situation is thrown in your path, don't just ignore it. You may have some healing left to do there. In my experience, if you can embrace the hurt and walk towards it with the support of loved ones or even professional help, you'll be able to address those past hurts in a way that will free you from having them pop up again and again.
2. Similar themes come up in your daily life
Have you ever had an experience where a certain lesson or idea kept showing up in all areas of your life seemingly simultaneously? Maybe you read a book that suggests you focus on de-cluttering your home as a way to combat stress and anxiety. Then, a few days later your friend tells you she is hosting a coat drive for underprivileged kids at school and would love a donation from you. This may seem small or even a trivial connection, but it's certainly a whisper.
3. Answers start easily and inexplicably start falling together
We often agonize over our issues trying desperately to find solutions to all our problems. However, there are moments when you'll find that things start falling together seemingly easily or like magic - PAY ATTENTION! This is your life telling you that you are moving in a direction to a new lesson. This is a crucial time to move forward with a positive outlook and a foundation of gratitude. Your path is contributing to unfold just as it should in front of you. To learn more about my personal experience with gratitude read my blog post, "how gratitude and a positive mindset changed my life."
In all my searching, I truly believe that there are no accidents in life and everything shows up is for a reason. That reason is to teach you, so you can continue to grow and evolve into the person that you are meant to be. Sometimes we miss the whispers, or the signs, and have to navigate a new curve ahead, thankfully that's a lesson too.
