Before diving into today's blog post a little shameless plug: I have currently been doing training in psychic mediumship. I am not yet finished with the course, but I would love to practice more.
If you are interested in scheduling a 30 minute reading with me please go to my "Book a Reading" tab on this site and use the scheduling app on that page. All I ask is that you come open and willing to listen to the messages intended for you. I would be so honored to connect with you.
Okay, with that over and done with.
Let's talk about choice.
I truly believe there are two ways to see choice.
One is from the quite standard way and how our society has taught us to think of choice, and the other is from the higher perspective or seeing choice from the soul's perspective.
I have recently just moved to Paris. I thought I was going to acclimate quite easily as I have lived in France many times before, but living in Paris is so different from anything I have ever experienced.
I am working full time for the first time in my life. I have to work twice as hard, because I work in a foreign language. At night I can't turn my brain off and end up sleeping maybe four hours a night before doing it all over again the next day.
At the end of this week, I was, quite frankly, on my pity pot feeling sorry for myself. I was doubting myself and my abilities.
I know what you are thinking: "You're living the dream? Why are you so sad?"
Because I'm outside of my comfort zone and really really scared. Well, my ego is scared anyway.
Case and point: I was doubting every choice I have ever made in my life to get me to this point.
I was asking myself why I had made these choices in the first place? Were they really mine to make, or were they simply the accumulation of choices I thought I had to make to feel safe and secure in this life.
And then I had a reality check before drifting off to sleep one night.
My soul literally screamed at me: "Jiselle, it doesn't matter what choice you make. They are all leading you in the same direction: back to you. Back to finding out who you are at your core."
And then I could breathe.
Maybe you can relate to this feeling?
To the world, you may look like you have it all together. But inside you are afraid and doubting if you are good enough or deserving enough.
If you are feeling this way, you are making the right choice.
Because there are no "right choices" in life. There are just choices and then more choices.
To get perspective, we have to distance ourself from the reality of our day to day lives. There is no wrong decision. There is only growth.
The soul does not see choices as good or bad, or black and white.
When you make choices, you have the choice to make different choices to bring you back to your purpose.
We are not one dimensional beings. We are multi-dimensional. This means we are existing on multiple planes of existence at once. Mind boggling isn't it?
It simply means that we are infinite. As infinite as the universe is wide.
The number of choices we could make in this life are many. But that doesn't really matter as much as learning to let go and surrender to our souls.
If we truly are infinite and learn to live life from this place with intention, we are not as defined by our choices as reality would like us to think.
Everyday that we wake up we have a choice: to live life seeing everything as mundane, or to live life seeing everything as the miracle that it is.
That is the paradox of choice. Your choices today define your reality tomorrow. But you are always free to choose differently.
You are always free to change your destiny.
