I’ve been thinking about Home a lot lately. I know this is because I recently moved to a new state 650 miles away, and I am still settling in. I find myself wanting to feel at Home in my house, my community, my heart and spirit.
One week before we were about to move into a house we had lined up to rent, our lease fell through. We had terrible issues with the landlord, to the point that we were terrified about moving into the property and renting from this person. I burst into tears several times that day. This house did not feel like our new Home.
But, the moving truck would be arriving in one week! We were moving to a new city, a new state where we did not know anyone. Where would we live? What would we do?
I was talking to Liv (my friend and co-author of Infinite Purpose) about my worries and she heard from Spirit. “Remember to follow what FEELS like Home to you, in all ways.”
We kept that in the front of our minds, following what feels like home as we quickly scrambled to find another place to live. Incredibly, in a very tight rental market, we ended up finding the sweetest house in the sweetest neighborhood- all within 24-hrs! It was a much better place for us than the original troubled rental. In this case, it was our literal home, but the strong feeling was more about being at “Home” in my heart.
Remembering this has become such an important way for me to make decisions and get clear on what feels right and what does not. Following what feels like Home can help to bring us back when we feel led astray.
This painting is a reminder to “follow what feels like Home to you, in all ways.” It is about being at Home in your own heart. Following what feels like Home can help to bring us back when we feel led astray.
May we all know the way Home.
With much love,
