Do you long to follow your spirit, but struggle with change and uncertainty?
Are you just going through the motions in life? Do you feel dead inside?
This week I watched a documentary, Raw Faith that really inspired me.
The film follows Marilyn Sewell, a sixty something Unitarian Minister in Portland, on her journey as she lets go of her old life and begins to walk a new path.
We see her struggle with the burdens that come with being a Minister. She is devoted to her flock and reserves very little time for herself.
In the course of the film, she allows herself to deal with her family history and heal old wounds that affect her ability to feel secure in a relationship.
She is eventually forced to confront her loneliness and it becomes clear that she is craving the love and intimacy that comes with being in a committed relationship.
Marilyn is often anxious and scared, yet despite this she continues to trust that on a soul level, the new path is the only way forward for her.
When Marilyn least expects it, and seemingly out of no-where, she meets George, the love of her life!
Following a new path takes great faith! It requires you to be open and willing to surrender control, specifically around the details like the “when” and the “how”.
Faith requires you to be uncomfortable not knowing what your exact next step will be, to trust that there is a path for you, especially when you are facing moments of extreme uncertainty, doubt, anxiety and fear.
Faith will allow you to let go of things that are keeping you stuck like a profitable but emotionally empty career or a comfortable relationship without passion.
Faith is the answer to a call from deep within. It’s the vehicle to arrive at your spirit’s greatest potential.
When you allow this energy to influence your decisions, you will tap into your own intuition, experience synchronicity and be open and receptive to new possibilities!!!
