I was talking to a friend who was put in a difficult situation and she was trying to figure out what to do. It seemed that no matter what option she considered, there wasn’t an easy resolution. I suggested she take the path of least resistance. I explained that it means to do what makes her FEEL the best, to do that which most resonates with her. That by using her intuition, she would be guided by her feelings.
Bob Proctor says, “Intuition is that marvelous mental muscle that is telling us the direction we should be going.” It is an inner knowing. When you are not on the right track, you will feel bad or uncomfortable about the situation or what you’re doing.
Taking the path of least resistance will always be the best choice you can make in any situation and the best solution to any difficulty. You can discover your path of least resistance by paying attention to your emotions. The better you feel, the more aligned you are with your source energy and the path of least resistance will become clear.
The key is paying attention to your feelings. Learn to recognize and listen to the small inner voice, the gut feelings or intuition, that guides you to the path that is in resonance with who you truly are and the path that is in harmony with your core purpose. Listen and respond to these messages. When you hone in on your inner voice, these nudges will be more easily recognized.
How do you hone in? You get into the feeling of gratitude, you activate appreciation really feeling it, and meditate. These are simple ways to get into alignment with your inner self where you become ready to receive the answers you need.
Feeling is your compass. Always choose what feels good. The better you feel, the more aligned you are. The actions you should take will become obvious when you stay in alignment with your inner-being and pay attention to your intuition. When you no longer have that good feeling, you are out of alignment.
Finding your joy is possible when you seek the path of least resistance. For my friend, when she focused on what felt good, the immediate difficult situation simply faded away. This has happened to me before too. Other times it felt like a release of what seemed constricting.
The path of least resistance is where you can find a sense of freedom. Whether the difficulty fades away or you find a resolution that FEELS easy and good, the path of least resistance will always be the best option for you.

These are the words written out.
May you be blessed
With all things good.
May your joys, Like the stars at night, be too numerous to count.
May your victories be more abundant than all the grains of sand
on all the beaches, on all the oceans, in all the world.
May lack and struggle only serve to make you stronger.
And may beauty, order and abundance be your constant companions.
May every pathway you choose lead to that which is pure and good and lovely.
May every doubt and fear be replaced by a deep abiding trust
as you behold evidence of a Higher Power all around you.
And when there is only darkness
And the storms of life are closing in
May the light at the core of your being
Illuminate the world.
May you always be aware you are loved beyond measure
and may you be willing to love unconditionally in return.
May you always feel protected and cradled in the arms of God like the cherished child you are.
And when you are tempted to judge may you be reminded that we are ALL ONE.
And that every thought you think reverberates across the universe touching everyone and everything.
And when you are tempted to hold back may you remember that love flows best when it flows freely.
And it is in giving that we receive the greatest gift.
May you always have music and laughter.
And may a rainbow follow every storm.
May gladness wash away every disappointment.
May joy dissolve every sorrow.
And may love ease every pain.
May every wound bring wisdom and may every trial bring triumph.
And with each passing day
May you live more abundantly than the day before.
May you be blessed.
And may others be blessed by you.
This is my heartfelt wish for you.
May you be blessed.
Regret for what you didn't do, for what you didn't try, for what you didn't pursue, or for what you wish you had done is more painful than any perceived failure.
Failure only happens when you quit. Everything else that you attempt and don't succeed at can be seen as a learning experience. "This didn't work, let's try that." "I know not to do that again." Seek the lesson and never see it as a failure. It's not a failure. It's a valuable experience that you can learn from. Learn the lesson and move on.
Regret is sorrow, it can be painful, it may be for something you don't get another chance at. If you go for it and don't succeed, that's ok. But if you don't go for it, you'll never know what could have been. Lost moments, lost time, don't live life with regrets. Cherish every moment, embrace every moment. Live life to the fullest. Always do your best and never have regrets.
Go after what you want. Stretch yourself. Don't let fear, anyone or anything get in the way of you going after what you really want. Then you can live with no regret.
