One of the things I’ve had learned over the years is that life will take us on a crazy ride. We will go to new places, new towns or cities, go deep into the mountains or downtown in a giant city. We will have new positions; we will make new friends, colleagues, etc. Life is funny like that. And when things like changes comes along into our life, we tend to find a home for ourselves, either it be temporary or it might be permanent. The only one who will know is the Universe, because the Universe knows how long you are meant to stay in a particular place, how long you are meant to stay in a position, who will come in and out of your life. Everything and every place happens for a reason. When we go to a new place or even to revisit, we are there because the Universe brought us there so we can work on ourselves and also to follow the path that the Universe has mapped out for us. This I know to be true.
I have been given the opportunity to come back to a familiar place and I am able to maintain a position at a clinic (I will not say the name to provide privacy) that I once worked for a few years ago. And trust me, this clinic is pretty amazing to work at. Aside from the very few people who are not so nice, everyone else is very caring and very understanding and they want to see you grow as an employee and also as a human being. Which to me, I think that is amazing. In addition to all of that, I have been able to get a place that is a cabin which is thirty minutes west of the town I work in. The cabin is way out into the mountain region and I am able to relax, meditate, and collect myself off of the ground where I was recently in a city. The cabin is surrounded by mountains, a canyon, gorgeous scenery and a few neighbors on my street (six houses total). The place I live in is a place where many writers like myself have always dreamt about living in. A small cabin where we can focus on our writing, on our stories and poems. And where we can focus on healing ourselves. On top of all of this, the Universe has been putting my ancestors way of living into my life for several years and finally, living out in this somewhat isolated cabin I am able to honor my ancestors the way they had once honored their ancestors. I follow my druid and shamanism path a lot, and for the Universe to give me a place where I can keep my feet grounded all the while my head in the clouds, is pretty amazing. I walk the solitary path in my spiritual life. And this cabin, this place that I currently call home, I am able to do that. I am able to walk outside onto my porch and walk down the dirt road towards the mountains that linger in the background. I am able to wander the trails that lead to forests and watch the animals scamper all throughout the forest. I am allowed to be me. And that is what this small town that I live in (less than three hundred people at least) is for. It is a current home for me. And I have the Universe to thank for that.
We may move from time to time, but the Universe has different homes for us to live in, new places for us to visit, and places that are designated for us in a particular spot in our lives. It is how things work and that is how they will always be. Sometimes things might seem a little scary, but lets face it, it is also exciting to see what the Universe has in store for us. And to also see what our personal paths have for us up the road. Because each new home, each new town, each new state or country is all part of what makes us who we are and how we grow. I learned this a long time ago, and I think it is thrilling. I am happy in the present time. Happy to see where the Universe has brought me. Happy to see the new faces that are supposed to be in my path at this particular time. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to see what happens in a years time, but for now, I am going to live in the present. Let the Universe take the reigns while I heal myself, while I work on my poetry, while I work at this clinic and help the patients, and help the animals in the local shelters and surrounding areas. Because right now, this is my new home. This may not be my permanent home or it might be, who knows…but all I know is that right now, I am going to take it one day at a time, heal and focus on my path while the Universe is working on me and working on who to bring into my life next. Are you going to do the same thing? Are you going to let the Universe take control while you live in the present and focus on what you know you need to be focusing on? Personally, I think it was wise for me to let go of the reigns and just let things come into my life when they were meant to come into my life. Best decision I’ve ever made. Now, let’s see what the Universe has in store for not only my healing career or my poetry career, or my spiritual career.
