The North Star, Polaris, is a pretty special star because unlike all the other stars in the sky, it is in the same location every night, and never wavers. It has been guiding people for eons – it always points the same way – true north.
It reminds me of our own North Star within. That little voice – you know it – that feeling, that instinct which guides us. If we listen to it! How many times do you have a feeling and then you ignore it and later say – if only I had listened to my gut!
It is easy to get off track – we want to please others, we want to take a short cut, we are just to distracted and need to make a decision quickly and jump right in. And we may end up regretting what we did, become disappointed or waste time and energy
When this happens just take a moment to breathe, listen and think through the important decisions. Sometimes it’s ok to just jump right in but when it really matters, a little silence will help you to hear what your true self is saying. That is the time to be guided by your own North Star.
