Soul Sunday Advice Column #1 with Emily:
I’m swimming in waters that are taking me down. There are so many urgent issues that it seems as though I can’t even prioritize them.
One thing that seems to hold things is that after 12 years with my dogs, I cannot make a decision about moving without considering that no one will take my “vicious” dog.
Talk about Sophia’s choice!
Then how quickly can I move forward & mine & my family (spirit knows who) that need me probably more in a spiritual way than anything else has to be dealt with.
Em, I’m flummoxed. 😉
I’m going under because I don’t think I have the strength to keep fighting the good fight. When I can, I want to book a session, but who knows when that will be (actually, I guess YOU do, lol). HELP.
Dear Fighting the Good Fight,
I read your letter several times listening and feeling the struggles you are facing. As you share your story with me I know that moving forward and great change is one that is eluding you. It is getting uncomfortable in the comfort.
When faced with the choice of what to do next about your dog, listen to where your heart is guiding you with it. My dog is my best friend and I know that if it came down to her being “vicious” or harmful to others or myself that I’d be faced with some tough decisions on what is best for the health of all including hers.
Put it out into the universe, pray on it, talk to your Spirit family. Relentlessly look for options here. The key word is “relentless”.
When nothing is left in you to fight this is the most imperative time to call on the universe and the people around you for moral support. Reach out to organizations and foster homes for your dog.
But remember your well-being is of the MOST important. We can’t be any good for anyone else if we aren’t first taking care of ourselves.
Ask Spirit to show you what is the best choice for you in this matter, especially at a crossroads with an animal you most love and adore.
What is holding you truly back from putting your needs first?
And can you be willing to compromise and find peace with what you CAN give right and CAN’T give right now?
I know what it feels like to feel as if you are swimming in deep waters without land in sight.
Keep praying, asking and don’t give up. Be relentless and when you aren’t able to anymore angels will guide you.
Perhaps in this message something will land and get you to the next step.
