Which Path Are You On?
In yesterday's post, we talked about the hero's/heroine's journey and took a look at what often happens within those kinds of tales of growth and development.
Near the beginning of a typical hero’s journey, there’s a choice between a lower path and a higher path.
Most of us wander onto or actively choose the lower path first and then, sometimes reluctantly, accept the call to a higher path.
Has that been true in your own life? Which path are you on right now?
Brief (One-Minute) Meditation
Ask your heart and your higher self to show you how those 2 paths have shown up again and again in your life. The answers may come to you in images, memories, movies you’ve seen, song lyrics.
So give it time and if symbols do show up as answers, give yourself time to tease out their meaning. Be open and don’t judge anything that comes. Just write it down in your journal.
Create a collage or draw a picture that represents you on each path. Words, images and anything else that comes to mind. Then look at each path and write down the thoughts and feelings that come up for you.
(1) What are you ready to let go of from the lower path that no longer serves you?
(2) What would you like to bring into your life once you let it go?
