Life Is Always Giving us Opportunities to Grow

written by Kathy Best – Intutive Living Expert

August 20, 2021

Life is always giving us opportunities to practice what we preach, grow, expand, and make conscious choices to do and react differently. It’s a lifelong process, but it’s one that can get easier the more effort and intention you put into it.

This week has been filled with inconveniences, distractions, frustrations, and interruptions. I was working diligently to get some videos done for the The WellNest Metabolic Wellness Program and it seemed that every time I started to record something would happen – someone’s cell phone would ring, the land line, which rarely rings received a call, there was a FB scam issue and possible identity theft issue for my husband that he needed help with, my cat who usually sleeps all day gets up fussing because I’m disturbing her sleep (she sleeps in my office), the camera on my phone stops recording me at 4:58 and no matter what settings I adjust it continues to cut me off at 4:58. I checked the memory and every setting I could think of. So I got out my old phone and tried to record on it. It has less than 10gb of storage, but I was able to record a 12 minute video on it, unfortunately the sound didn’t work. I tried on 12 different occasions to record videos and each time something would intervene.

My cat has been getting me up at all hours of the night for food and water, so I’ve been sleep deprived all week, (actually I’ve been sleep deprived for about 10 years, but that’s another story).

Yesterday I got up early to do my angel message before I went to the Vagina Conference meeting (if you haven’t heard about the Vagina Conference coming up in October at the WellNest you should really check out the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/vagconference/posts/112987264377627. It’s going to be a holistic event all about women’s physical and emotional health and wellness.) and The WellNest provider meeting.

So I got up at 7am, meditated, showered, watered and fed my cat, made a smoothie, put on my face, typed up the angel message, but didn’t have time to set it on a pretty background or post it to FB, LinkedIn, etc.

I got my tables together for the Healing expo at the Wellnest this Saturday (https://www.facebook.com/healingexpo) some water and snacks. I was leaving early so I could stop by the store and pick up a cake to celebrate a couple of birthdays since they would be at the meeting. I loaded up the car took off down my road and low and behold there was construction going on. That is an extremely rare occurrence on my rural road. I stopped for the guy holding the sign for a few minutes, feeling okay because I had plenty of time and gratefully waved as he ushered me down the road.

I’m driving through town and all of a sudden I notice the check engine light and the tire pressure warning on the car are lit up. I pull over in a parking lot, because we just had the car repaired two weeks ago for an issue where the battery kept failing and none of the dash buttons worked. I didn’t want to have the battery die on me downtown or have to drive with the heat blazing like it had the last time this happened. I pulled out my tire inflator and checked all of the tires. They were all fine, so I called my husband and told him what was going on. I also noticed I could not turn the radio off. -another symptom we had last time.

He told me to bring it back, so I turned around and went back home. Had to stop at the end of my street again for construction. My husband was using my car to transport a dehumidifier to his daughter so I had to borrow my mother’s car. Transferred my tables and other stuff to her car, forgot my notebook and the fresh tomatoes I was taking too. Took off and had to sit at the bottom of my road again for construction. I thought I was going to be late by now, so I decided not to stop at the store. I hated not to bring something for these lovely ladies, but I didn’t want to be late for the meetings and it’s sometimes difficult to find parking downtown.

So I made it with time to spare, found a great space near the building and lugged my table upstairs, talked to Valarie Angle for a few minutes, went back to get my water and headed upstairs for the first meeting. I was exhausted and couldn’t really focus well, my mind was so scattered and I kept forgetting things, but I was showing up the best I could in that moment.

My point is that I could have gotten very upset, angry, or even depressed about all of the little things that had prevented me from doing the things I wanted to do, but instead I decided to simply accept them as opportunities to take a different perspective and approach to life’s bumps. I let go of my need to control everything and decided to be understanding and flexible with my self and my time.

Very often the things that prevent us from doing something are actually self-created blocks when our heart isn’t really invested in something. I wasn’t feeling very capable of communicating on video this week and I was torn about whether to bring a cake to the meetings, because I didn’t want to be the person that makes everyone feel guilty for eating cake and I didn’t want to bring something that the birthday girls didn’t like or couldn’t eat so in both instances the energy of my emotional resistance created circumstances that prevented me from doing the things I felt like I needed to do, but wasn’t invested in completely.

If I had made conscious, definitive decisions about those things I might not have had such difficult experiences. When we use our energy and intention with conflicting emotions or unconsciously we give the Universe leeway to make it happen in whatever way works. The Universe doesn’t judge it just does what is asked and usually refers to our previous thoughts, emotions, and intentions to bring about something familiar. So if you’re used to having challenges, struggles, and difficulties you can expect more of the same as long as that’s what you accept as your pattern. We have so much more power and control over our experiences than we understand and even someone as intuitive as I am still has days where old patterns resurface, so I can master them and choose to create new, more positive ones.

Your Purpose is not a Destination, It’s a Lifestyle

Written by: Kathy Best – Intuitive Living Expert, Nutrition Specialist, Angel Communicator, July 5, 2021

As an intuitive living expert and nutrition specialist I am passionate about helping people, especially empaths, learn how to tap into their intuition, trust themselves, harness their gifts and live a purposeful, passionate life doing something they love in service to their greatest good. When you start doing what supports your own greatest good, not what you think you should be doing or what you think will make you the most money, you create a resonance with the Universal flow of good that emanates out into the world increasing the good for everyone.

I have always had a resistance to being seen and heard, or being the center of attention. I much prefer to be in the background helping others be the center of attention. I recognize that I sometimes sabotage myself, because of my aversion to being visible. This is one of those times. I joined The WellNest Roanoke near the beginning of the year as a collaborator and founding member, because I believed in their vision of creating a holistic hub for the Roanoke area and I wanted a place to start offering classes in my area of expertise and knowledge.

When I started taking steps toward my goal all of these road blocks kept coming up, like my health issues that had been improving tremendously started flaring back up, then my husband’s health started declining, then I lost my inspiration and my motivation to post on social media regularly, then the classes I did post didn’t get any interest, so when another avenue of potential popped up for me I jumped into it, thinking this was how I could pursue my passion in holistic healing without being front and center.

As soon as I started down this new side path I received all kinds of warning flags and messages from my intuition, but I disregarded them because I wanted this new path to be my easier, safer way of pursuing my passion. Well it was not easy or safe and everything and more that I had been trying to avoid was still being asked of me, just in a different setting, format and in ways that did not resonate with me at all. I kept pushing through it for a while because I knew there was a potential for immense prosperity and radical change in the business world, but ultimately I had to heed the repeated warnings of my heart and soul that things just weren’t quite right and this was not the path for me.

So I made up my mind to divest myself from this potent opportunity and circle back toward my true passion and purpose as a collaborator with The WellNest Roanoke. My point is that even experts have times of insecurity and struggle to live their passion and purpose. It’s about the willingness to reassess, do the internal digging, find the issue, address it, and pivot again, moving ever forward on the journey toward self-realization. It’s being able to accept what is and viewing our own growing pains without contempt, criticism, or feelings of failure. In reality there is no such thing as failure. It’s all about discovering what you really want and what aligns most with your gifts, talents, skills, and abilities. It’s seeing through the fear and insecurity with compassion and understanding that eventually enables each of us to begin to embody our true essential self and become a light and an inspiration for others.

I could have continued on that alternate path and I am sure I would have been prosperous with multiple sources of income. I had put so much energy and belief in it that the Universe was lining up everything I needed to achieve what I thought I wanted, but I would have had to sacrifice some of my principles and dilute my true passion and purpose to be successful. The further along I went, the more my internal guidance system was raising the alarm bells. The funny part is that I it from the beginning, but I didn’t want to let it go, because it felt safer than standing in my full power and potential and being who I came here to be. In the end I decided the cost was too high and I bid my fond farewells to the many new friends I had made sending them all love and gratitude for their encouragement, support, and care.

You see, living your truth, your passion, and your purpose is not always easy or comfortable, or even clear. We are all blessed with many gifts, talents, skills, and desires as well as the free choice to decide how and when we use them. It’s not something you accomplish and then put away.

Finding your true passion and fulfilling your purpose are decisions, a conscious choice you have to make over and over again.

It is a commitment to being and living a certain way, every day.

It’s not a destination, it’s a lifestyle.

Most people want success and a purposeful life, but when they realize that it takes a commitment to growth, expansion and conscious living they start coming up with all sorts of reasons why it can’t happen for them.

Purpose, just like prosperity, is a birthright and a responsibility we must choose to accept if we want to fully live.

If you choose to live your purpose it will take strength, courage, and a willingness to be uncomfortable – to really dig deep inside yourself to acknowledge, asses, and correct all of the garbage that you’ve been conditioned to believe and accept about yourself and about life. There will be struggles and challenges and opportunities will present themselves to move back into your comfort zone, but once you truly commit to become the highest version of you, no matter what, you will always find your way back on course. Each side track will be easier to recognize and move out of as you experience the growth and expansion that is a lifelong process, not a destination.
