The Signals to Freedom

Posted by on 3 Nov 2010 in Q&A | 0 comments

These next few months are crucial for me academically and professionally. I am tired of constant failures despite my best efforts and hopes. I deserve a breakthrough, but nothing seems to work. I end up living my life in my head–daydreaming. Escapism helps me evade my daily drudgery. I need my life to have meaning to be worth living. Please help. Thank you. Meg. Thanks for your note, Meg. Your guides show me a series of signals they send you as you walk down a...

You may recognize some of these accounts from my previous stories, while others are more recent. Enjoy the solitude of the darkness, and know the light will soon warm! I’m not a skeptic by any stretch, but I am an experiential junkie. I need some level of personal exchange...

Question: Kelley, I feel that my life has come to a standstill, emotionally and as far as what I need to do with my life. I have been a stay-at-home mom, and I need to regain my self-worth and pride. I feel so confused and lost regarding my life purpose. Do you see me getting into the workplace? What field do I have potential in and need to pursue? Regards, R Thank you for your note, R. I do feel that your life force is a bit fragmented from long facilitating the growth of others around you. Your guides tell me that it’s time to put that level of energy into your spiritual wellbeing. Taking up activities like yoga and meditating to feel the nuances of your life...
