Intuition, Life Purpose & Signs: A Double Rainbow is a Very Good Thing!
Yesterday I went for a walk after dinner. It been pouring on and off throughout the day but the dark clouds parted just enough to let the early evening sun through. I saw the sun and quickly put my sneakers on to get out and before it might rain again. For three days it had done nothing but rain so even a charcoal sky with threatening clouds and a ray of sunshine coming through was inviting enough to get me outdoors.
I don’t know about you but several dark rainy days in a row can get me down. I need to see the sun shining. And I need to be out in the sunshine. The last three days of stormy weather brought up the sabotaging voices I’m normally able to keep at bay.
You know the voices I am talking about, don’t you? They may sound something like this:
“What the hell are you doing quitting your job? You’re giving up your health benefits? You’re crazy!”
“It’s such an easy job…..you get to work from home and do what you want most of the time.”
“Why quit? Just keep doing what you’re doing on the side and no one will be the wiser.”
I couldn’t stand the battle going on in my head any longer. The more the rain dragged on the louder the sabotaging voices became. When the sun popped out I jumped at the chance to walk down to a nearby park. Seeing other people would get my attention off of the voices.
Change your scenery
The parking lot was overflowing with cars. Each baseball diamond was in use by local teams and throngs of people watched from the sidelines. Games that had been postponed due to the rain during the week had brought all the teams to play on the same day so the park was unusually full. The grass was soaking wet but it didn’t phase the kids who were playing. They seemed excited to see the sunshine as well.
Ask for a sign
I silently asked the Universe to show me a sign that I wasn’t crazy to quit my job. I knew although I really wanted to focus full time on creating more from Powered by Intuition that thirty years of working in finance and the last 15 from the comfort of home would be hard to walk away from.
Working from home and being a 100 percent commission employee had been my first taste of entrepreneurship. Fifteen years earlier I’d heard the call for more freedom and given up a corporate job. I walked away from a major career to find myself and who I was meant to be.
After going back to school I took a part time job in financial sales and soon found out I was really good at it. I loved not having to go to an office and I loved making my own hours. The terminology didn’t exist then but I now see that what I was drawn to was having a “lifestyle” business.
While selling financial products wasn’t my dream I recognized early on that this job was part of my journey to becoming my own boss. I knew I eventually wanted to be an entrepreneur but what held me back was not knowing my purpose.
Know your purpose
I knew I would never quit my job until I found exactly what I would do instead and had a solid business plan in place. So, I set out on another journey to find my life purpose and destiny. It took some time but, I realized what I was born to do was help others find their life purpose by teaching them to listen to their intuition. I also found a way to help others find their purpose much faster than I had by offering astrological life purpose readings.
Having found the path I was meant to follow my Soul longed to get started doing this work in the world. I wanted to help others stop suffering the way I had. And, this desire pulled at me and nagged at me daily until I finally made the decision to go after my destiny full time.
I fully expected that pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone by giving up my safety net job would produce a lot of fear. To offset my fears and quiet the voices I meditate and use affirmations. This evening I repeated an affirmation from new thought author, Catherine Ponder as I walked the park:
Today is the day, now is the time something wonderful will be mine!
It’s a great affirmation I like to use when I’m walking. The words flow easily in tempo with your steps. After a while it becomes almost hypnotic. I have found it to be very calming. And soon after I began repeating the affirmation I could feel myself relaxing.
Interpret the sign
Five minutes into my walk around the perimeter of the park I started hearing a symphony of “Ooooh!” and “Aaaah” and then “It’s a double rainbow!,” coming from the crowds gathered at the park.
I looked up and sure enough there was a magnificent double rainbow in the sky. Sweet relief poured over me.
I had my sign. Full steam ahead!
It never fails to amaze me how the Universe will support you when you find your purpose and make up your mind to do it. Find the path you were meant to follow and the signs will be there to guide you on your way.
