Life has a funny way of letting you know you’re on the right track. It isn’t always pretty and usually involves some twists, turns, and loopty-loos, but eventually you find your way, and that’s when the fun starts. But, how do you know when you’re on the right path? Will there be a literal sign that declares YOU ARE HERE? Probably not, but there are definitely signs along the way. You’ve just got to know when you’ve found them.
Here is how I’ve come to know my signs. Typically, they happen in this order:
- You feel it. When you’ve found your thing(s), you’ll know. You’ll experience a range of emotions — excitement, vulnerability, connection, etc. All of those feelings are signs that you’ve tapped into one of your gifts, which is a huge sign that you’re on the right track. Don’t poo poo the feelings away. They are the arrows pointing you in the right direction. Take heed, baby!
- Things start to overlap. You’ll begin to see the same word or phrase over and over. You’ll look at the clock and see the same time again and again. You’ll hear the same message from many different sources. They’re all part of the overlap, the place where all of these messages come together to connect you to your path. Overlapping messages are one of the best ways to know you’re headed in the right direction. They’re like the cheering crowd on the sidelines of your race. They hand you the sustenance you need to keep going. Pay attention them; they are random happenings.
- You become a magnet. When you’re following the path your soul knows is true, everything and everyone you need will come to you. It will be as if you’re a magnet pulling them in. It’s like the line from the movie, Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.” If you’re on the right path, the right things will come. Have faith.
These three ways have repeatedly served as confirmation for me to know that I’m on the right track. Anytime I feel uncertain, anxious or just need help making a big decision, I lean on these principles to guide me where I should be.
