Making Choices that are True vs. Right/Wrong

Hey Everyone!

I thought it would be nice to touch base with you regarding what's on my mind as we kick off summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. First I wanted to let you know that I've brought back the Soul Destinies Home Study! Originally I had only intended to produce and sell 100 of them as they demand quite a bit of time for my team to produce due to how they're personalized for those who order them. Well that first 100 sold out within a month leaving many of you feeling like you lost out.

Thus, some of you have since written my office wondering if you could still purchase them and with a break in my team's production schedule I'm happy to say YES - we are going to sell/produce another 25 more of them this year!

There's no waiting list, it's still first come first served - so if you missed the first opportunity to purchase this 29 CD/Workbook Home Study now's your chance! You can click the link below to find out more about this program and purchase it. This might make for a great summer study course - imagine spending the summer coming to know the archetypal core of your life's purpose!

Speaking of summer studies, as part of a seasonal transition from spring to summer here, all online course downloads are now 20% off for the next two weeks! The 'Soul Connections Series' and 'Who Owns Your Chakras' provide hours and hours of life changing content - or so I've been told, lol! Please take advantage of this sale and then let me know how this material has changed your life on my Facebook Fan Page!

New Cycles and New Choices

I don't know about all of you, but change in my life seems to be quickening with my own personal cycles moving into a new phase of development. A redirecting of Destiny is hugely at work in my life. I suspect that for many of you a similar feeling is stalking you too, a feeling that much of life is about to change as the winds begin to blow all of us in a different direction - mirroring the massive change of cycles in the world psyche of which we are all part.

With some of my own major life choices soon ahead, lately I've been deeply contemplating the nature of choice, and most notably how most of us when confronted with choices tend to think in terms of making choices that are right or wrong, good or bad, etc. I know for myself that in the past I've approached many of the choices in my life through this paradigm - much to my own chagrin! That said, I'd like to offer a different way of approaching choices that I've come to really embrace: how to make choices that are true.

Deeply contemplating the nature of choice is certainly not new for me. For many years now working as a professional Intuitive Life Strategist I've been counseling folks on their choices. Many times I'm asked, 'Robert, what is the right choice for me to make in this situation?' And while I certainly feel it's my job to help a client get clarity on the choice and consequence formulas of their life, inherent in asking this question a deep level of their reality is readily revealed: choices are either right or wrong.
The fact is that choices are far more complex and truly can't fit into a simplistic right/wrong reality. Choices are how we learn, grow, evolve, and come to know what we value. No single choice defines us, yet our essence is revealed or eclipsed through the sum of our choices by what they create in our lives as consequences.

And yet, most of us go into hyper vigilant mode when we are facing a big choice, right? We spin up into our heads in an effort to figure out 'what's the right choice.' Doing so we sadly miss the bigger picture of Destiny, which is that life is nothing but research and one large process of evolution back to love. There's nothing to get 'right'! Yet in our perfectionism and attempt to 'get it right' we lose the most powerful part of our 'choice guidance system.' Spun up in our head, we lose our heart.

Dropping into the Heart

So long as we stay in our intellect when it comes to making choices we will be greatly limited in making the choice that best serves our Destiny. We will stay at the level of 'right vs. wrong' and our mind's shame based contamination with perfectionism. Let's face it, at the end of the day most of us are under the cultural spell that there is something inherently wrong with us - and believe we better be extra careful to make all the 'right' choices in life so as to ward off others seeing our innate defection. So our perfectionism amps up whenever a new choice enters our lives and we over analyze, catastrophize, futurize, and forget to harmonize! You know what I'm sayin???

We simply can't make any mistakes! Or else we will be seen as a failure and confirm what our environment has always said all along: we're simply not good enough. As I write this, I'm brought to tears about this...what a heart break.

This is not to say that when it comes to making many choices in life the intellect doesn't have its use. We do indeed need to gather data, look at the alternatives, and assess the practical realities in which we live. Yet the intellectual mind cannot sense the 'bigger picture' and what serves the highest good the way our heart can. And it's from a balance of the intellect and heart coming together to 'see' and 'feel' a choice that we can make choices that are simply 'true'.

What is a True Choice?

A true choice understands life as a process, that we are here to grow and wisdom comes from our mistakes. Good judgment comes from experiences! A true choice accesses the guidance system the heart is connected to, which is the guidance system of your soul, while the intellect accesses the guidance system of the ego.

If we leave things up to the mind alone our choices then tend to be primarily based out of defending our ego wounds and fear. This in turn puts us right back into the right/wrong and success/failure reality of the world's shame based perfectionism. The heart 'knows' while the mind 'thinks'.

That said, as an exercise I'd like you to think of a choice that is currently present in your life that you've really been struggling with. Let this be something that you've analyzed to death and nonetheless still feel totally confused about. Realize that your confusion is really perhaps the result of trying 'make the right choice' when what's needed is to make a choice that is TRUE.

To get to the true choice visualize and feel yourself taking this choice down into your heart. Take a breath, feel your entire body, and notice what your body is immediately telling you through your feelings about the choice in question. Don't even 'think' of taking this back to your mind! Stay with your feelings...

Now, what do you know to be true about this choice? In your heart what do you know is the true choice to make, even if it doesn't completely make sense to your mind? One way you'll know what the true choice is for you is by noticing that, in defying logic, it somehow brings power into your system when you take it to your heart, and once you take it back to your mind, you begin to lose power once again to your mental gymnastics. See how that works?

Ahhh, there is so much more I want to say about this, yet the hour grows late! I just did an entire radio show on this topic on "Dialogue with Destiny" that can definitely offer you much more food for thought if that interests you. You can purchase the download of that show via the link below! Don't forget that if you are already a Dialogue with Destiny Archive member you already purchased access to the download as part of your annual membership. Speaking of downloads, don't forget that my entire online course downloads are currently 20% off for a couple more weeks!

In a couple weeks I'll be back with more things to say and some exciting things to tell you about. In the mean time, just remember that when you make choices that are true you serve the highest potential of all circumstances, even if it doesn't make complete sense to your mind. Indeed, choices made with the heart are where all miracles begin...

Until next time,
Much love to you and Namaste,

Robert Ohotto

Due to increasing demands on Robert's calendar, Year One of the Soul Destinies program will not be offered in 2011. And because of the frequent requests he receives for this material from prospective students who were unable attend past weekend intensives in South Dakota, Robert has made the Soul Destinies course available in audio format for home study purposes! For the first time since the program's inception in 2008, anyone interested in gaining an introductory understanding of intuitive archetypal astrology and crucial aspects of their Soul Contracts can now do so at a self-guided pace without having to travel any farther than the mailbox!

The Soul Destinies Home Study course gives you access to the same pre-requisite material required by Robert's second-year Intuitive Life Strategists (ILS) in training.

Omega InstituteTransforming Shame Into Mysticism: The Alchemy of Recovering the Soul

Intuitive Robert Ohotto shows us that a new mystical path to freedom and empowerment requires that we redefine mysticism. To truly begin recovering the soul, we must understand mysticism as a process of negotiating five primary patterns-the alchemist, the addict, the mystic, the scapegoat, and the wounded healer-inside each of us.
