Be the master of your own domain. These are the words at the top of the administration page of my WordPress account. How perfect! This is exactly the subject that’s been on my mind over the last few weeks. And I’m not referring to how to tie up domain names related to ones website.
How not to be the Master of your own Domain
We have the answers to almost anything at our fingertips via the internet. To find The Answer requires good discernment and the ability to choose. Not everyone is able to take that step. If you or your loved one is a procrastinator, you know what I’m talking about. Something has disabled the choose button.
We become overwhelmed by too many choices. Too much of a good thing is still, simply, too much. Do you remember feeling any dissatisfaction with your vanilla kiddy cone because there weren’t 120 flavors to choose from?
The belief system that one can’t make the perfect choice the first time, that there’s always something better, that one needs more choices, more to attain– it’s insidious! Like viruses in the new age, this pattern of too much can very cleverly disguise itself. One finds it in the new age community with its workshop junkies and in academia with the need for multiple degrees in different areas of specialization. I believe this is called a professional student. I have not been immune to falling into these traps. I did a combo stint as a Professional Student of the New Age/Workshop Junkie–no degrees given, just the receipts.

The second most powerful choice we ever make is the one that comes from discernment. Good discernment is achieved through observation, experience and practice. You have to be willing to make choices and learn from them in order to cultivate discernment.
The number one most powerful choice we can make is the toughest one to make! It comes from listening to your intuition and then following your inner guidance. This is difficult because this guidance will not make particular sense to you, nor will it be comfortable for you to act upon. It will not be the choice anyone would choose for you. You most definitely risk appearing the fool.
Yet we all revere this way of choosing above all else.
We call it, following the heart.
And so dear friends, I encourage you to be the master of your own domain and to courageously follow your heart forever and in all ways.
