Through the ups and downs in life, I’ve learned that your intuition will never steer you wrong. It’s an innate ability to read through perceptions, ignore the noise of your mind, and see something for what it truly is. Reality vs. Perception; it is difficult to compartmentalize the two. Embarking on a new journey can elevate your senses and lead you through stages of euphoria; however, things do not always go the way you had hoped, and it is during these times that you find a new channel of strength and self appreciation that may not have been apparent before. Listening to your gut, welcoming the signs from your angels and God, and taking hold of the power within your every ounce of being will undoubtedly lead you along your soul mission. It is when you ignore your inner voice,and claim coincidence rather that fact, that you veer off of your God given path. The birds in this photo are all on a path, traveling together, heading to the same destination. However, their strides, their experiences, their timing, all vary considerably. While some land quickly, others continue to glide, not quite ready to rest their wings. I have come to a point in my life where I recognize the true importance of protecting the sanctity of my own happiness and inner peace. While it may be frightening to take the path that does not conform to society’s norms, it is often the way in which you see the most beautiful of sights, and experience an abundance of inner truths.
