I’m grateful when God closes doors that are no longer meant for me. I feel a growth spurt coming on. I’m always amazed how this happens in my life. A little chaos gets stirred up to show me doors to close and new doors to open. The transition isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it’s downright painful! What I have learned is it is necessary in order to keep growing and expanding.
I’m a person who is very sensitive to other people’s energy. It’s part of the reason I love speaking so much. I love the feel of energy connecting. I used to think it was only possible in person, but the pandemic taught me no distance matters when energy is connecting and lifting people into the energy of love, abundance, and peace. It’s also true for the energy of fear, lack, and separation, but I definitely don’t want to put my focus there.
I honestly believe that God sends little whispers when energy isn’t aligning. I feel it’s preparing me to close a door and/or open a new one. My body will also give me energy signals. I can be talking to someone and a person says something that makes my stomach tighten up, I know whatever is being said is connecting me to fear, lack, and separation. Then, I can also feel goosebumps as a sign of connecting to Divine energy, the home of authentic joy. I call it the AWE.
I’ve been getting the door closing preparation whispers for a while, and then while I was in my highest energy, I felt the door slam. My body became constricted. I knew in that moment I needed to shut the door to a big source of fear, lack, and separation trying to invade my energy space. In part of the struggle of closing the door, I have to remember the importance of praying for those who are stuck in the energy. In order for me to stay out of their energy, I have to make sure mine is aligned with love, abundance, and peace. I don’t do this perfectly. It takes a lot of reminders. Once I gain distance from their energy, I feel this encouraging feeling and idea after idea start flowing into me. I’m grateful for the door closing. I’m so grateful I keep getting signs on how to align deeper into the energy of love, abundance, and peace.
Today, I commit to being open to the signs leading me to close doors to fear, lack, and separation. If we want to stay in the energy of love, abundance, and peace, we have to pay attention to where our energy slips into fear, lack, and separation. I’m learning to trust my body’s signals on this one. I’m also learning to trust that little voice. The little voice gets clearer the more we align with love, abundance, and peace. Just remember, when doors are closing it can get dark for a little bit. I don’t want to downplay that. It takes a lot of work to stay in love, abundance, and peace when you are also experiencing grief of a door closing. This could be a friendship, a job, a career path, a spiritual path, familial relationships, romantic relationships, etc. It just signifies a time of change, and change isn’t always an easy thing. We have to give ourselves space to feel through it. The feelings can be all over the place for awhile depending on how long you had the door open. It may feel like you are feeling around in the dark while you are getting prepared to open a new door. The door will open when you are ready, but sometimes we have to be in a place of stillness before the door opens. Once again, we are in a chrysalis making the necessary changes to be able to fly. Trust the process.
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
