Following Your Calling

Following Your Calling

“We all know when we are not following our calling,” says the late Zulu healer P.H. Mntshali.

“We are unhappy,” he says. “It’s as simple as that. We are restless. We do not like the people we work with. We do not like our work.”

“We must move on. This work, these people. It is not their fault. We are in the wrong place. It’s so important to take responsibility for our own healing.”

I love P.H. Mntshali; he was an amazing man!

Mntshali was one of several African healers featured in the book, “Called to Heal: African Shamanic Healers.”

Great book! Love it!

But back to what Mntshali is saying.

Are you in the wrong place? If so, what are you going to do about it?

If you’re in the wrong place I totally get it. I was in the wrong place at my last job in Corporate America.

I ended up leaving that job to work on my calling as a filmmaker and spiritual counselor.

Though my path is not easy, I’ve learned that things have a way of working out for you once you listen to your heart and the guidance from your ancestors.

Sure, it’s tough sometimes, but somehow, my ancestors provide for me month after month; I am here to tell you that your ancestors can provide for you too.

But you’ve got to develop the courage to step out on faith…

And you must have patience and discipline and a strong work ethic.

The support from the unseen world can be amazing at times!

Here’s how Mntshali describes the magic…

“As for financial security, it all depends on how you obey orders. If you obey exactly as the ancestors direct, your practice, your life, will not fail,” he says.

“The ancestors will provide. At first you may worry. How will you pay your bills? The children’s school fees? Then you become so caught up in your calling, your true work, your love for it grows.”

“Soon you are only serving and not worrying so much about the bills. When you need it most, money or goods arrive. Your calling is God’s work. God does not call us then leave us to drown in hardship,” says Mntshali.

The day you stop doubting the guidance of your ancestors is the day your life will start to improve dramatically.

I’ve got to run, but I would love to hear what you think, so feel free to leave a comment.
