When I first began my spiritual journey, I was taught that I had to visualise what I wanted and then make it happen. That only by having a clear vision and putting energy into it could I have the life I wanted.
Later, as I began working more closely with John, I was taught to sit in the silence and listen first. That in doing so I would hear what my Soul wanted me to achieve as part of my Divine plan.
I understood the difference between New Age thinking and walking with Spirit. Yesterday I was asked how easy I find it to know what I want and make it happen. My reply? I listen to my soul's urgings and then look at how I can create the outcome desired. I don't begin with what I want. I begin with what I came to be.
