Crossroads of Life

Crossroads of Life


Have you ever found yourself in a position where all you have worked toward is right in front of you, but instead of a simple black and white decision you are presented with a handful of options? None clear cut. None with reassurance of long term happiness.
This situation embodies one of the most complicated tasks any of us will face in life – the concept of making the right decision. Every few seconds we have the opportunity to change our lives, our careers, our future, and the lives of many others, some of which we will never meet.

You already have the tools to succeed. It’s simply a mindset you need to access at the crossroads of life. Success is right there on the horizon. The question remains, how do you navigate the path ahead?
Here are some keys to weathering life’s crossroads:
1. Have a little faith and trust your gut. We all know, deep within ourselves, what we need to do — what we know, how to think, when to trust — during times of crisis. We can learn to access and trust our innate wisdom; it is personal and always available. When we don’t follow our inner guidance, we feel a loss of power and energy.
2. Move ahead with purpose. Pick one option, commit to it, and get moving with focused intention. Climb that mountain.
3. Take in the scenery. Once you’re moving, you’ll quickly feel whether it’s the right direction for you. Be in the moment and respect the value of being here and now. Allow yourself to feel the feedback that comes from action.
4. Adjust your course accordingly. Evaluate where there is room for improvement. Consider all the factors that led to the consequences and adjust your course and move forward with an increased awareness of how to navigate the path ahead.

Life’s too short to remain stuck. Life is experiential and full of difficult decisions. Every day holds new opportunities to learn and grow. Take life in your own hands and trust all you’ve learned and your inner wisdom. Enjoy the empowerment of traveling new paths and climbing the mountain. Readjust as needed and discover new heights. As W. Clement Stone once said, “Aim for the moon, if you miss it you may hit a star.”

Opportunity and Adventure by Maria Rodriguez

Opportunity and Adventure by Maria Rodriguez

Opportunity Photo


“Is this an opportunity to consider or a problem to solve?”, so asked America, an intuitive consultant. She was referring to my fretting about how we could afford the remodeling project we were considering. I quickly shifted from a state of agitation to one of cautious excitement. I could feel the power of choice- there was nothing that I had to do, only something that I could choose to do…with proper planning and precaution.

How often do we miss the opportunities hidden within possibilities like this one, worrying instead about all of the risks? Similarly, how often do we miss adventures hidden within losses- of a job, of a marriage; of any loss we didn’t want and didn’t choose?

With those that aren’t as obvious, sometimes all it takes is a shift in attitude and mindset, an embracing of the spirit of Opportunities and Adventures (the giddy anticipation of the child within and the uplift shown in the photo above), and a leap of faith in action.  Try it, you’ll see.


Healer, Teacher, Circle Leader and host of the show Cour De Grace on VoiceAmerica’s Empowerment Channel. Maria Rodriguez has served in these ways in her 25 years as a clinical social worker. These roles have been enhanced by Maria’s gifted Channeling. She receives words, processes and images full of wonder and of truth that can speak to us all, adding Infinite Possibilities to our lives.

Maria believes that together we can see more clearly, shift more deeply and move forward more swiftly. In light of this, she developed a model for Breaking Our Toxic Shame Cycles: Healing Ourselves and Our Relationships, a model that has led many to profound spiritual and psychological transformation. Maria is also the founder of Sacred Spaces, her counseling work of partnering with each person to remove these barriers and to access and embrace the Sacred Spaces, within us, between us, and around us.

Through Cour de Grace and the VoiceAmerica talk radio show, Maria will share much of the wisdom she has gained from the pain and triumphs of her own journey and from being a co-journeyer with others. Maria believes that none of us need live any longer bound by shame and that our journey is one of moving towards leading a life we love to live, ever uncovering the essence of who we are, bringing higher intentions wherever we tread. All with grace, for the good of all that is.
