Spiritual Intervention: Happiness Is Discovering Your Purpose for Being by Stephanie Cannoe

Spiritual Intervention: Happiness Is Discovering Your Purpose for Being

While on my knees in prayer, I look up at the sky seeking answers from God. My heart is overwhelmed with emotion, because what I want is not possible and I cannot see the bigger picture. Suddenly, I notice a squirrel 15 stories high, jumping from branch to branch without any fear. One missed step is a fall to sudden death, yet this squirrel is doing what squirrels do. No questions asked, pure in its intention. 

Not a coincidence to be captured by this seemingly insignificant event at this moment. I intuit this is a spiritual intervention to jolt me awake. I reflect to let the deeper meaning sink in. When I do a shift occurs, and almost immediately I know with absolute certainty that the ability to give and receive love is what I am made for. My current struggle vanishes within this truth. Regardless of the external circumstance, I am doing what I am born to do. 

Focus on the energy of what your heart desires – and set your intention on fire with clear divination. An open heart is all that is needed. Allow the rest to fall away. The process of discovery will define the path, with each step that is pure in its intention. Happiness will find you. Make this your priority. The deeper meaning IS what IS guiding you. 

"When the soul wants to experience something she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it." – Meister Eckhart

The practice of (Ho’oponopono) keeps poping up. I’ve read about this several times. Its so simple yet so effective. I’m a a visual person. When you mentioned the kaleidoscope
