For today I've drawn “Compass” from the Enchanted Map Oracle by Colette Baron Reid. When your are on a journey a compass is the tool to maintain the right direction. Colette calls this your True North. The direction of your higher self, the divine, your purpose in life, your heart’s desire and so forth:
“As long as you orient your compass to True North — the direction of your higher power — you will never be lost.”
Although we encounter many distractions on our path and we might think we've lost our way, this isn't the case. Our higher self follows without a doubt our winding path through the thicket and the swamps back to the meadow where it is visible again. Every experience is a footstep further on this path. How small and rough it might be it is our path and we never lose our way.
These last few days have not been my best days and when I feel like that there is always the fear of relapse, which is almost never the case. Now, while I am feeling somewhat better again, I wonder as always; how did I lose my way and every time I remind myself: this is my way…
“Have faith and trust, for your compass, with Spirit as True North, will ensure that you’ll never be lost — even on a starless night when all seems dark”.
It all comes down to trust and being in the moment, where we are able to look at our compass and decide on our next move.
