A few years ago, a good friend of mine, Amy helped me decorate a room with a high celling. I’ve always liked my décor to have a sense of uniqueness. She had been holding on to this very old door for years. Her family wanted her to get rid of it, but she knew she would find the right home for it.
Well, she did! In my home! It hangs beautifully in my office and it is one of my most favorite pieces of art. As I sat in my office this week while I was working, I happened to look up and stare at this door. It made me think about the significance of doors and how it pertains to our lives.
I have clients who are struggling with what is next for them. Many will come see me for guidance or because they have been going through a struggle and they need help with the knowledge of what the future holds and a promise of good things to come.
We normally make changes when our life seems to not be going in the direction we want. It’s a wake-up call to our soul. How we decide to change our course is up to us. Following our heart and leaving the judgement of ourselves and others out of the equation. However, that is always the dilemma. We ask others what we should do when actually our soul knows. Doors open at the right time for the right reasons when we investigate options.
Recently, my oldest son has been trying to find his path and has tried several options, but it seemed the doors kept closing and he was frustrated thinking he had nothing to offer to change his circumstances. Then a door opened. A neighbor had shared with us about an opportunity as an air traffic controller. He had all that he needed to open that door. It has been seamless in the last two weeks and the opportunity has been almost handed to him.
Don’t push the doors open that are not the direction for your calling. Keep knocking on the doors until one open’s without effort. We can have multiple opportunities or just a few, but the path that’s right for you doesn’t have to be difficult, it just has to be there for you to knock.
If you want something, then certainly make the effort. When I realized my abilities as a medium it wasn’t the door I was knocking on. While going through a difficult time, I was told about the practice of Feng Shui. I was told that by implementing Feng Shui into my life and home would change the energy and therefore help to open doors for me and my family. I had no understanding of this culture but wanted to try something to make a difference in my situation. While grasping this new concept, I thought wow I’m going to be a Feng Shui Consultant. But that is not at all what happened, that wasn’t my destination even though I use it in my practice still today. It wasn’t the only door for me. I figured out I could feel the souls of loved ones who had crossed over. I didn’t even know that mediums existed at the time. I was in for a surprise and so was my family and friends and since I began this journey I have never looked back.
The point to me sharing this is to suggest that you never assume your destination, open all the doors and see where it leads you. If you hold onto fear that means you don’t trust the universe and that you are unable to fulfill your calling. Just do it! You can find the people that support you to go for it. Allow the nay sayer’s to float on by.
Oh, one more thing about the door. I just realized after years of this door hanging on my wall, it’s upside down. That tells me and you to look at things from different perspectives to find the key to opening your perfect door.
