 Welcome to Day 16 of the 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse. After basking in the clarifying light of realization, you're well prepared to open to this truth. God has a plan for you—I can promise you that. Your life is sacred. There is and always has been a path for your soul, and if you follow that path, it will lead you to the inner utopia that your soul longs to experience in this lifetime.

You are here to manifest the glory of the divine in a way that will serve your own soul and serve the evolution of our world. What you do and how you do it matters. What you say and how you say it matters. What you choose to dedicate your time to matters, not just for you but for all those who are affected by the withholding or the deliverance of your unique gifts. Your soul's mission is to serve in the grandest way it can. Divine plans lie imprinted in your inner world, and there are important lessons for you to learn and share on this journey to your most magnificent self.

If you fail to see or learn the lessons, they will eventually become your limitations. Then, instead of joyfully following the voice of your highest self, you will be rerouted down a dark road filled with obstacles, limitations and frustrating delays. So to ease on down the road, you must stay awake and aware, take direction and follow the signs to your highest destination. The only way I know to do this is to invoke our next agent of change, called God's will. When you activate this change agent, your life will be forever altered. You will no longer be confused as to what path you should take, because you will be privy to the path of your own soul. You will no longer have to stay stuck, because you will just ask the divine to show you your next right action, trusting that the higher will for you is greater than your ego's path.

God's will can become your internal reference point from this day forward; it is your choice.

Cleansing Ritual

During today's guided meditation, you heard a powerful statement that is a reminder of your choice to live as an expression of God's will. Post your power statement in at least five places and make a list of the benefits that you will receive from allowing divine will to be your guide and compass. Make a commitment to read it for 21 days when you get up in the morning and when you go to sleep at night.

Soulful Action

Your Outer Goal: If you were living your life based on a higher will for you, what would you stop doing in your life in order to fulfill your desired goal?

Your Inner Goal: With divine will as your internal reference point, what would you be directed to do next to access the feeling you most desire?

 Soul Food: May I do thy will always.
