Changing course

Have you ever been in a situation where you were really clear on what you wanted, the path that you were going to take, and the end result? But then after some time of walking down this path. you found yourself feeling that the path was not right?

It’s happened to me and it’s happened to almost everyone I know. Life is not stagnant and if you are not changing you are not growing; and if you’re not growing, you are dying. So changing your path is very normal and very healthy. It also shows great strength.

For those who consciously work with the Law of Attraction, we laser focus our desires on the path and end result. But whenever we get “that feeling” that something is not right, or maybe too many issues and roadblocks pop up along the way to where it is more struggle than progress, it is absolutely okay to change course. Actually, it is the BEST course of action to change than to keep forcing something that is not fitting.

When you sense a course change is needed, you may wonder whether you are sending a confusing vibration to the Universe when you change course. This is especially true if you have spent months and years focusing on the path. And if you hop off of the path you may not immediately find the correct one, right? That can cause fear of what lies ahead.

What I have learned over the years is that when you know the path is not right (you feel it in your heart and gut even though your brain is forcing you to march forward), it is not important at that moment to know where the right path is. What is important is that you stop your energy from staying on the wrong path. So this can be as simple as saying “This is not the right path for me. I now change how I spend time, energy, thoughts and feelings to seeing the correct path and staying open to receiving guidance on where I need to be.”


So when you get a feeling that something is not right, that is your intuition giving you an early warning signal. Most often that signal is ignored and people keep charging ahead down the old path. They find that the old path is more difficult and tiring than initially expected. This is because your intuition is telling you that the path is not right and is trying to get you to take action to change course. When we don’t change course, we encounter uneasy feelings and difficulties. Listen to your feelings and your intuition and it will always guide you to the right path.

Where energy goes, energy flows is what the Law of Attraction tells us. So when you state to the Universe, you stop the flow of energy to the old path and allow yourself to be re-directed. You will then find that you start taking action towards the new path, even though it may not make sense initially. Visualize how you have been rowing your little boat upstream and struggling the entire way; then visualize letting go of the oars and you let the river redirect your boat. Do not force the re-direct; let it naturally happen. Be open and watch for messages.

Here are some handy tools to help you tap into your intuition and listen to messages about your path:

  • Crystals: Amethyst, Azurite, Sodalite, Sugilite help strengthen intuition (we all have intuition, sometimes it just needs a little exercise)
  • Young Living Essential Oils: Acceptance, Believe, Envision, Harmony, Into the Future, Release, Surrender, or Transformation (apply any or all of these oils over your heart, to your third eye, on your wrists)
  • Affirmations: I am open to being placed on the correct path for my highest good.
  • Vision board: Update your vision board by removing any reference to the old path and post things that relate to changing.
