Divine Guidance and Commitment

“Do not grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.” ~ Rumi

This is a story about divine guidance and the ripple effect of one BIG commitment.

2013-08-25 13.49.48

It was the last week of August 2013.

I was supposed to go on a trip with my ex to visit our friends and go to a concert. I decided not to go and we decided it was a good week to take some space and evaluate whether or not we were going to stay in the relationship.

There are times in life when even the most fiercely independent of us find ourselves facing the feeling of, “There’s no way I can possibly do this on my own.” Though usually painful, these are great times because we are not meant to navigate this crazy earth experience solo.

I was feeling lonely and sad and all “How did I get to this place?” so I decided to take a road trip up to Santa Barbara to visit friends. This was how I thought I would solve my “being alone” problem. I would soon find out that wasn’t what Life had in mind.

Whether or not you believe in God, spirit guides or guardian angels is none of my business and you’re welcome here no matter what. I believe in all of those things and was desiring to learn how to better communicate with them so, I downloaded Sonia Choquette’s “Ask Your Guides” on Audible for my road trip.

With traffic my two and a half hour trip turned into four and I knew the whole time it was because I needed this time with the book, so I sat calmly in my Mini Cooper on the 101 and listened.

My heart was heavy, I cried many times, and as I did I kept opening my heart to this new source of love and guidance.

I learned how to ask for guidance and be specific about it and what energies to call on for various things. For the very first time I truly, deeply felt surrounded by this divine love and guidance I’d always questioned. I realized that weekend that I’d never be alone again.

On my way back from Santa Barbara the next day, I stopped off in Malibu. Years ago a friend had driven me through Malibu and I fell in love with it, even dreamed about living there some day. It felt totally serendipitous to be there, that weekend, with my life in flux, having no idea what things were going to look like in the next few weeks.

I laid on the beach for a bit, continued listening to “Ask Your Guides”, put my toes in the ocean, and went for a walk. I breathed in the air, took in the sounds, and looked around at the beautiful homes wondering what the people who lived in them do.

At this time it wasn’t just my relationship that was up in the air, it was also my business. I’d been feeling restless, like I wanted to do something more meaningful, like I was over “health and fitness” but not really clear on what or how to transition into something else.

I started thinking about how I’d been working so hard for so many years and didn’t have much to show for it in the physical world and intuitively knew that was connected to my lack of passion for my work.

Again, my heart felt heavy, again I cried.

Then I remembered a story from my friend Kate Northrup’s book about a conversation she had with Marie Forleo once. About how Marie had wanted a brownstone in the West Village and at the time just wasn’t willing to do whatever it would take to get it. And I realized how long it’d been operating like that too, unwilling to do whatever it would take to get what I want.

I knew this was largely due to not knowing exactly what I wanted. So as I walked on the beach, staring up at those beautiful beach homes, I decided it was OK to not know what I wanted to do with my life and I got clear on one thing I did want – a beach house. I let that be the symbol for something I can hold a deep desire for in my life that would represent having figured out the rest of the details.

So, using my brand new cosmic communication skills, I let God, my angels and my highest vibration spirit guides know that I was finally willing to do whatever it takes to get it. I told them I’d be looking, listening and feeling for their guidance and thanked them profusely for their love and assistance.

Three weeks later the idea for Wild Soul Movement (formerly known as The 2xONE Method) was born.

Two months later I met a man whose presence in my life has been one giant invitation into love and expansion (most days I can’t believe he really exists).

Four months later I moved to LA (which feels like magic everyday).

Yesterday I made a decision that required me to completely let go of my ego, any stubbornness and attachment to how I thought things were supposed to look to fully support of my mission and my team.

And today, seven months later, I sit here in the middle of the creation of a new brand, website and mission that I know is my life’s work because it’s unfolding with so much divine synchronicity, joy and ease.

Lots of love,
Liz

    LOVE this Liz, beautiful post. Around the same time actually, I was dealing with some upheaval in my own life. Wanting to make serious changes to my business, to resolve some issues in my finances, and to just generally shift into the work I’m here to do and person I know I’m not fully in alignment with yet. Embracing the “I’m willing to do whatever it takes” and sending out all the possible feelers I could to back that up… I am doing what it takes. Not at all what I expected, but SO perfectly the journey and changes I’ve needed. xo

    • Liz DiAlto

      ooh Steph, I think this is such an important point – to send out all the possible feelers to back it up. That’s what my choice yesterday was all about. We can’t just ask for guidance we have to show that we’re willing ot take it too!! xo

  • Debbie

    Liz, thank you so much for this post. I relate strongly to “not knowing what you want to do” and the feeling of “I don’t think this is really it.” Just picking one thing, and doing whatever it takes is inspiring…and it’s always good to know we’re not alone. I love your blog and work. Thank you for sharing.

    • Liz DiAlto

      thanks, Debbie :)

    I’m so glad I read this. Thank you for sharing it! Focusing on a symbol of something…. that’s worked wonders in my life, too, even when I didn’t understand what the symbol was about. (for example, when I didn’t know what I wanted in a relationship, I found an image of a merman and woman holding each other lovingly. Turns out I wanted (and found) someone to “go deep” with. Right now I know what I want, but I’m going to shift to focusing on the symbols… Such a welcome reminder! Can’t wait until you post the pictures from inside your beautiful beach house.

    • Liz DiAlto

      thanks, Kate! The symbol makes it more fun and creative, doesn’t it? Not so bogged down in the how – that’s where we get stuck!
