I have been on a spiritual journey for the past two years, during which I have been working on letting go of the past, healing wounds and ultimately achieving a sense of inner peace. It hasn't been easy but I have progressed a great deal,especially with regards working on my life's purpose. My spirituality has become ever -increasingly important and have begun to move down an energy healing path also.
My biggest issue so far has been integrating these higher aspects of myself in daily life, for example remaining focused and confident when faced with trying new things such as continuing with my education and worrying about money (I grew up in a dysfunctional family which had its fair share of financial woes due to irresponsible adult behaviour which is something I haven't quite managed to let go of.)
Like many people I worry a great deal about making the right decisions and stepping into the unknown,change while a necessity can bring up great anxiety!
I suppose overall I'm wondering if I'm going in the right direction and what else I can do to ease the anxiety and maintain a sense of calm when faced with choices?

Thank you for writing. The questions you bring up are the sign of a conscious person trying to live a conscious life... I commend you for having reached this place of understanding!
Now that you're here: awake and aware in the world, the daily challenge is to lead with the Divine self, or to let the Divine lead... to let the Soul self lead instead of the lower, younger, less evolved human self.
Anxiety comes in as when you sense the tension between the two: you know there is a Divine way, or a way to live with the Divine leading. And yet much of the world seems to be very human indeed... and it's hard to bridge those two realities.
For you, I'd suggest deepening your practice... deepening your connection to your guides, your intuition, and using this as the basis for making all decisions. I suggest my course Opening to Your Guides & Angels.
Whenever you feel yourself getting to that stressed, anxious, buzzy place... just go in and connect with the Divine, in a very intentional way. This might mean you are "entering in" several times a day.
This seems a lot, but it's about what's needed to maintain consciousness in this human world.
So... in a nutshell, for right now... build into your day these moments of direct connection with the Divine. No matter how busy you are, these moments of direct connection will be the most important parts of what you are doing.
After a while, when you are "entering in" to this space three, four times a day... you will begin to notice that your understanding has shifted and deepened even more. At this stage, you will find yourself existing often in joy, bliss and love. You will begin to see the change in your life.
