I recently heard someone say, “At first the Universe will gently whisper in your ear. If you don’t listen, it will give you a little shove. And finally if still ignored, it will proceed to take a 2×4 to your head.” I love this quote because it’s so very true if you just stop to take a look at those areas of your life that are causing you the most stress and/or never seem to be working out the way you want them to. When you start to pay attention and notice these signs in your life, you’ll come to find that we are always being guided out of chaos and back into balance. It’s just when we get happen to get in the way and interfere with that, when we see things fall into a state of perpetual disaster.

This may sound annoyingly obvious, but when you find yourself in the same boat over and over again, and it’s not a boat you even want to be in per se (it’s been leaking and threatening to sink for years); well, that is life’s way of trying to tell you it’s time for a change. Whether it be as simple as a shift in how you’re always thinking about things in your life that are causing you stress, or a huge, major shift that often knocks us for a loop and shakes us to the core. Unfortunately, it usually takes the latter for most of us to start paying attention.

We’ve all heard of people having near-death experiences and then making huge leaps and bounds to better themselves and their lives because they’ve been given a major dose of reality. The reality being that every moment of life is so very precious, and our Ego-minds often tempt us into settling for lives of comfort, convenience and mediocrity. So, why do we need such a HUGE event to remind us of this and start living to the fullest? When do we lose that child-like wonder to reach for the stars? And when do we forget to make our own happiness a top priority?
