“Although you may believe you have a connection with the Divine, there may still be one area of your life where you are stuck, where you can’t find courage and confidence, where you can see you are living from your head rather than your heart.
You may still believe you can do it all yourself. This false sense of pride will prevent you from seeing your life with clear eyes. Your ego will remain in charge until you step outside your righteous belief that you are simply an independent and separate being. As long as this myth is intact, you keep the door closed to your higher wisdom.
However, when you step into humility, the doorway through which the Divine can walk into your life, you will be able to recognize that you do not and cannot always know what’s in your highest and best interest.
When you have faith and trust in the Divine, you will discover the confidence that there is good in your present circumstances even though you may not see it at the moment. Faith opens the door to new understandings, new views, and it gives you access to new perspectives.
Living the Code of Divine Guidance allows you to open your heart and mind to the possibility that miracles—unexpected positive events, circumstances, or realities that you didn’t believe could or would happen—exist in every moment. When you are connected to the Divine, real change can occur.
When you connect with your spiritual self, a whole new world opens up. You can see situations in a new light. You can feel good even in the midst of a crisis. You can access a powerful source of wisdom that is unavailable when you are dealing only with your mind and what you believe to be the truth. So you must open this doorway and believe in yourself—your whole self—like never before. It is time to stand for all of who you are instead of just parts of who you are. You must look to see where you have closed the door—or never even opened it—to the wisest part of yourself.”
