So, you’re thinking about relocating? Are you 100% sure this is the right thing for you to do? Before you decide to move 2,000 miles across the USA or the world, take time to contemplate your decision. For some people, moving is the only answer. They may be on a “soulful journey” that can only expand by leaving the familiarity of their environment. The changes they experience in their new location will bring them closer to discovering not only who they are but the desires they have for their life. On the other hand, some people may stay in their current location. Perhaps they take a break for a couple of days or weeks to figure things out. Good for you if you are ones of the those lucky few.
On a personal note, I fall into the former category. I moved over 2,000 miles from Ohio to Arizona not only to “heal myself” but to figure out what I desire for my life. Of course, hindsight is 20/20. My options could have been to 1) leave my belongings at my mom’s house, 2) put all of my stuff in storage, 3) give away or sell my stuff, and 4) rent a place for 3-9 months. I did give a lot of my stuff away before I left Ohio. I’m glad I did because it was the right thing for me to do, and I was able to use only one moving pod.
Many self-help books are written to assist you on your journey. Just go to Hay House Radio where you can purchase books by Deepak Chopra and Sonia Choquette. The bonus is that you can listen to the various programs or sign up for one of the special events. Visit Debbie Ford.com to “hire Debbie,” purchase one of her books, or attend a lecture. On a personal note, I read Debbie’s books; with the exception of “Spiritual Divorce.” I really liked “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers” and “The Dark Side of the Shadow.” These books helped me tremendously. I had many “epiphanies” during and after I read the books. FYI: Debbie has a MySpace page, check it out!
Whether or not you need to move from your current relocation in order to “expand or heal your soul” is a decision that you can only make. Exercise all of your options. Go away for either a few days or weeks. Take some time to meditate or walk in nature. Become very quiet and listen to that inner voice, your spirit, your guidance system to make the best decision for you. If moving you and all of your belongings is the answer, don’t question it; just do it. You’ll figure it out soon enough. Sometimes later is better than sooner!
