A crossroad is a place where two roads meet. If you wish to continue going forward, you have to choose between them. You do not have the option of staying on the same path. The straight away no longer exists. The road divides. You have to choose which road to take.
Choosing which path to pursue has monumental consequences. It affects your whole life, your health, your success and your happiness. You have to choose without any definitive information or guidelines. It can be very threatening and intimidating. The risk is real. There is no way to know the consequences of your choice in advance. You cannot make a truly informed decision. No wonder coming to a crossroad may generate anxiety and fear. There are consequences no matter which path you choose. You are at a critical moment in time and in your life.
You need to find a way to temper your choices and moderate the results. How can you mitigate your choice? One way to reduce distasteful consequences is to meditate and to tap into your intuitive abilities. Relax, become aware of your breathing, and use positive imagery. Listen to your spirit. You need to understand and know your reason for being. You need to focus on your true purpose in life and your soul’s true purpose. There is a difference. You need to identify what you should be doing rather than what you think you should be doing. Everyone has a certain path to take and a certain mission to follow and to fulfill. Think about what will fulfill you. Think about what will benefit humanity and others the most.
These strategies will decrease your risk and prevent you from making a mistake. When you come to a crossroad it is less frightening when you know that you have the tools to influence the outcome and soften the consequences. You will know when you have chosen correctly. The universe will remove any road blocks that might be in your way.
