guidance quotes

The great, Cosmic I AM is the electrical, unifying life-force that not only fully runs your physical body, but also generates and sustains the entire cosmos.”  ~Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction
—  Deepak Chopra, The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life 
When I break in the middle of the night, my demons are the ones that hold me tight, preventing me from falling apart. They don’t run when I unfold my heart. They guide me and teach me how to be a burning light in the midst of darkness.
There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don’t dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves
—  Fernando Pessoa
If it no longer resonates with my heart, spirit, mind and soul, I let it go.
—  Lalah Delia
Oh soul, You worry too much. You have seen your own strengh.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less, Why do you worry? You are in truth. The soul, of the soul, of the soul.
—  Rumi

“Have the courage to look inward and surrender to the total freedom of your nameless and formless ‘I AM’ essence beyond the space-time, simulated matrix.

You are the ever-present, universal life-energy, not bound to the narrow opinions of others or the repressive chains of social/cultural conditioning. 

No external convention, organization, scientific or religious dogma, nation, political affiliation or man-made tradition has the power to define or confine your eternal spirit.”  -Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

Istikhara is a means of seeking guidance from Allah when faced with making a decision that one may be unsure about. “Should I, or shouldn’t I.. Will I regret making this decision?”. Who better to ask than Allah? You will definitely know that you have made the right decision when the direction has come from Allah Almighty as a result of your supplications.

The description of Salaat al-Istikhaarah was reported by Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Salami (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said:

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach his companions to make istikhaarah in all things, just as he used to teach them soorahs from the Qur’aan.

 He said: ‘If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer, then say:

 Allaahumma inni astakheeruka bi ‘ilmika wa astaqdiruka bi qudratika wa as’aluka min fadlika, fa innaka taqdiru wa laa aqdir, wa ta’lamu wa laa a’lam, wa anta ‘allaam al-ghuyoob. Allaahumma fa in kunta ta’lamu haadha’l-amra (then the matter should be mentioned by name) khayran li fi ‘aajil amri wa aajilihi (or: fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri) faqdurhu li wa yassirhu li thumma baarik li fihi. Allaahumma wa in kunta ta’lamu annahu sharrun li fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri (or: fi ‘aajili amri wa aajilihi) fasrifni ‘anhu [wasrafhu ‘anni] waqdur li al-khayr haythu kaana thumma radini bihi

(O Allaah, I seek Your guidance [in making a choice] by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power, I have none. And You know, I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allaah, if in Your knowledge, this matter (then it should be mentioned by name) is good for me both in this world and in the Hereafter (or: in my religion, my livelihood and my affairs), then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge it is bad for me and for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs (or: for me both in this world and the next), then turn me away from it, [and turn it away from me], and ordain for me the good wherever it may be and make me pleased with it.”

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6841; similar reports are also recorded by al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad).

“Cultivating spiritual awareness is an empowering act of self-love that helps us to remain deeply rooted in our wakefulness. Remaining centered in present-moment-awareness will free you from the manipulative, hypnotic trance of the ego-matrix system (mass consumerism,  status quo, power and social conformity).”  -Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

Dealing With {Heavy Emotions}

When lower, negative and heavy emotions show up, it’s an opportunity to transform them- not to suppress them, own them or overreact to them, but rather to work through them from a higher vibration of courage, patience, growth, mindfulness and wisdom. 

Allow your emotions to point you in the right direction for healing those areas within yourself that have been calling upon you to {transform them}; through a higher vibrational level of awareness, growth, patience, inner peace, balance, love and mindfulness; daily. 

{You are the healer} you’ve been waiting for.  -Lalah Delia | VibrateHigherDaily
