Let Go & Open Yourself to Divine Guidance!

Updated: May 7, 2018

You’re Part of a Greater System of Energy

Have you ever had the experience of wanting something to work out sooooo much? You come up with an action plan, make a wish, keep praying, and visualize. You’d even do a rain dance if you had to. Yet, all the signs from the Universe are telling you to let go and stop putting your goals ahead of your relationships and the world around you. When you’re tired of all the fighting and you’re finally present in the “not knowing” of the mystery, the Divine leads you to your highest outcome… one that is often better than what you first wished for.

Humility is that place within you that understands you’re not alone and cannot live in isolation. Rather, you’re part of a greater system of energy—from your relationships and community to the Divine and All That Is. You receive information that does not come directly from you or your own personal knowledge, but instead through this greater system. And as part of this web, you also cannot just make things happen on your own, even if you keep trying to manifest and use the law of attraction. (I know, that can be a tough concept to digest.) 

Connection is the ultimate realm of intuition and a reminder that you are part of a greater community.

With humility, you can maintain your connection with the conscious universe no matter how tough life might seem. It entails letting go of control, surrendering to the present, and being grateful for all of your experiences… even the tough aspects of your life. So, if you’re worrying about whether you’ll attain your goal or feeling stuck, humility asks you to bless all of your experiences. With acceptance and a grateful attitude, you open yourself to Divine guidance.

Humility also asks you to remain open and share your own gifts and abilities with the world without placing conditions on what you want in return. It asks you to live by example and put your focus on others. This means, rising above victim consciousness and recognizing that we’re all in this together; even though each of us is unique, we’ve all had our own ups and downs.

I often joke that most of the goals I’ve surrendered have had my claw marks all over it. For example, you may have heard me talk about my dream to be a recording artist. I first did intuitive readings on the side while I prayed and prayed for my music career to take off. No matter how much I tried and pushed to make it happen, it just didn’t. But, the phone kept ringing for readings. It was clear that the Divine had other plans for me. So, I finally surrendered to just be in service to others. That humility led me to a where I am today—with a career that not only helps others, but I also love. I get to explore my creative side by making amazing divination systems in the form of oracle cards! And, ironically I did eventually get the record deal after I let it go and I am working on another music CD now too- crazy right?

Sometimes the greatest adventure is found through surrendering to not knowing and just being.

EXERCISES:

Practice being grateful and of service:

Write down five things you’re grateful for every night for a week. And, ask yourself how you can be more of service to others. You might even acknowledge someone in your life you’re grateful for. (Perhaps bring flowers to the hardworking barista at your coffee shop, help your neighbor with their trash, or send a card to a family member or friend.)

Let go and let God:

What do you need to let go of? Write a letter to Spirit/God/ Goddess/ The Universe/ whatever name feels right for you- about your situation. Acknowledge that you’re letting go of control and pray for guidance. Whenever I get stuck, I turn to my own oracle cards  for guidance, but not until I have released my hold of a desired outcome, and ask with humility for guidance. If you don’t own your own deck of Oracle Cards, that’s ok. you can pick your cards for free on my website. On that same page, you can also download a free e-booklet on “How to Ask the Right Questions of the Oracle Cards”

Here’s a great meditation called… Humility

Much Love,

  

Anything is possible when you open your connection to the Universe

    Collette- Thank you for such a beautiful and appropriate message. Xoxo
    I get a kick out of myself thinking I’m going to change the universe. What is it they say? When we make plans, God laughs. Just through being in the natural rhythm and flow which exists in the universe is when I feel the best.

    Thank you so much! One deck in particular that called me as a beginner was the “Wisdom of Avalon”. Although, I know nothing about the story of Avalon, these cards spoke to me as I watched a review. I was able to precisely indicate the exact message of what I was already feeling from spirit.

    Anyway..thanks for your positivity❤

    I really needed this email message. Sometimes I like being in control but that is usually when I don’t receive my desired outcome. I guess I needed to be reminded that spirit is calling the shots a lot of times for my benefit as well as the benefit of others.

    Thank you, Colette <3 I had my carpet cleaned, today, so my cat and i spent time on our steps listening to your taped meditations. She was only calm when we were listening to your voice in the meditations. Then my directional bird, a sweet raven came to yell at me to get our butts inside just in time,( preventing my cat from freaking out from the noise of the trash collection truck). After I thanked the raven, she quieted and just gently talked to us, but stayed around until I got us both inside. Life is magical and your classes and community make me more comfortable acknowledging and fully seeing and being with its magic. Thank you so very much!

    Thank you Colette! As I sat down in front of my altar this morning, I heard, “Stop trying to make your life happen! Get out of your way, and let your life unfold!” And then I saw your email. Perfect confirmation! Thank you for being that confirmation. Just what I needed.

    okay, so you let go of a desired outcome how is that different from asking and wanting a specific thing and what’s “wrong” with having a desire for a specific thing or situation?
    I find that there is alot of contradiction when asking for what I want…feels like “old religion” that I have to give in order to get…I need to be of service to others.
    I grew up with that idealism that I must always give to others before giving or even wanting anything for myself. That way of thinking and being left me empty, it kind of feels like you’re saying the same thing with a new age twist on it.

      there is nothing wrong with desiring something .. its when we become too attached to the form of it. Also holding it as if it had already happened, or that you have it then allows the universe to deliver it in the form its supposed to be in for you. This is not religion I assure you 😉

    I love your blog Colette! It always seems to be the perfect message for me at the perfect time! Thank you so much for being you and sharing your experiences and wisdom. I can so relate to the “claw marks!”

    Letting go seems so hard sometimes, until I remember (thanks to you) that Spirit has something even better in mind.

    Dear Colette.
    I would like to ask you about your orakel card “wisdom of the oracle”
    On some of the cards there are a number of “flags” in the top of the picture. Do they mean something special?
    I hope it’s okay I ask you here.
    They are my favorite cards.
    Wish you all the best.
    Love from Maria (Denmark)

    Received my new pack of “Wisdom Of The Oracles” on 7th May. I so looked forward to the arrival. Did first reading for my adult daughter in serious circumstances & the guidance surprised her. She’s been doing amazingly(under those circumstances) yet burdened & alone. I read everything to her from the Guidebook & we both knew it was exceptional and outstandingly tailored for her. I’m deeply grateful because it came outside of my motherly care & viewpoint & she recognised that. She’ll be returning to her situation in a few days & I feel this is an important ‘something’, a little unexpected guidance that we’ve been calling out for to help her which will have a ripple effect on others. sincere Thanks. 🙂

    Dearest Colette,
    I read your blog and listened to the meditation this morning in perfect Divine timing. I have “known” this message for some time, but this morning I am “openly receptive.”

    The Seer from MSO was one of my cards drawn yesterday. “You receive information that does not come from your own personal knowledge, but instead from this greater system.” I love the exercises and meditation🤩
    With much love and gratitude,
    Janet

    While reading the blog the words humility and surrender kept resonating along with not knowing Thinking about this I realized that there is often this difference of opinion between “spirits” will and my interpretation of what this “should” look like. You refer to it as the “form”. Letting go means that I am trusting the outcome to something other than my limited vision can imagine. Spirit has a much broader perspective , and a detached one. I love the frame of reference you often refer to in “divine appropriate timing”. Getting myself out of the way. allowing, releasing the outcome all very challenging to my “creative” soul. Dr. Joe Dispenza says the “HOW” is none of my business. I know that I extend a lot of energy sometimes trying to figure everything out on my own. Recently I serendipitously met someone I didn’t plan on; who has family connections to a factory in India where they print and manufacture scarves. How interesting! As it wasn’t really appropriate to discuss my business with her at that moment I decided to contact her about meeting to discuss a collection of artisanal designs I have been working on having created. As is turns out she lives in Toronto which would make things much easier to communicate and collaborate. Her suggestion that we meet after she returns from travelling, not until June. I shared that I had already had some prototypes printed by another company and her response was that “they will make a fool out of you”. Didn’t elaborate on that comment. So in the meantime, I am fortunate to be gainfully employed assisting an emerging entrepreneur develop her business. Eighteen months since that door opened and I learn a great deal from being connected to this uncharted journey. So grateful to be a part of a larger story, and to be trusted, and appreciated, valued and paid regularly which an upward climb to rebuild my financial infrastructure from the ground up. Still I feel inspired to explore this other pathway and to see where it leads. My day job is not my destiny, but I do believe that it was good orderly direction to have accepted the position and to take time to make sound decisions while I do have an income source rather than “trying “ to make it work, and happen . Sometimes it can be as easy as having the right connection(s) appear when not expecting it. Spirit is playing a part and my part is to be present to receive the gift when it does. So on that note; I am at peace and am no longer applying pressure. If it serves the best interests of all concerned; the next steps will be revealed in divine appropriate timing. So Off to work I go!!! As always, your blogs allow me to question my motives, and to think about how I might approach a situation from a new vantage point. So appreciate the opportunity to share

    What a great meditation. I used to fly over my Ottawa neighbourhood when I was a child. Some nights I could hardly wait to go to bed and start my dream. I think I thought I was the flying nun. I even remember getting a swoopy feeling in my stomach as I flew around.
