We spoke yesterday about why settling is never a good idea. We have also spoken in the past about stepping stones that are part of the unfoldment of your dream. We understand how this might be confusing so we wish to clarify this for you today.
While both settling and stepping stones are less than the full expression of your dream, settling is a stagnant energy. It is trying to thrive in energies that you already know are expired for you. There is no forward movement in settling. Settling can also be done in an attempt to please others. Settling is almost always a decision based on fear and/or doubt.
Stepping stones, on the other hand, have a sensation of forward movement. They come into your awareness through flow and synchronicities. They offer you elements that are essential to help you move closer to the experience of your dream. Stepping stones are supportive of expansion and growth, and they honour where your soul is wishing to go.
One way to take the guesswork out of all of this is to actively work with the divine combination of surrender, faith, flow, and trust, for that is how you continually move towards your best outcomes and highest life expression. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
