“True North” Is Calling Me Home
Knowing my True North gives me courage to focus my energy where I believe it should be, not according to what is popular or pleasing to others.
– Jennifer Cummings
There are times when we feel drawn by something that we can’t quite name. It’s a whisper in our ears, a tug in our hearts. We feel it pulling us towards “true north” or home. We may not understand it, but we know that we have to go there. When we are searching for our place in this life, we are looking for our souls home.
Never ever base a decision on someone else or what they think. Find your compass and find your own true north.
– Michelle McIntosh
The interior compass may seem to be spinning in all directions. You no longer have an interest in looking backwards. You just don’t know what direction to take.
Coincidence doesn’t exist and goosebumps never lie. Your body already knows the answer. All you have to do is turn down your spinning mind, and continue to follow all signs. Because you are always worthy of becoming your best and most actualized self.
– Victoria Erickson
When we are at one of life’s transitions, and trying to re-imagine a new life – that is when we need each other. We can help each other to find the way to our souls calling, to home. We don’t throw limited beliefs into each others faces. We help to end the wobble in each others compass, so we can each find our own true north. These kind of friends celebrate you living your own truth, your divine destiny. Sharing a path with such a person is a sacred gift.
The ache for home lives in all of us. The safe place where we can go as we are, and not be questioned.
– Maya Angelou
The path to home is found in only one direction, the winds of change. The storms of life are by design to help us change. They don’t happen to us, they happen for us. Recognize change when it comes upon you, learn what it has to teach you, and always keep your compass on your own True North.
We are not retreating – we are advancing in another direction.
– Douglas MacArthur
How much we go through in these storms is determined by the attitude we have, by the actions we take, and how well we are listening and paying attention to what is happening. I think that the meaning we give things has a large part to play in how we advance. Are we retreating or advancing in a new direction. One view indicates failure and one view indicates resilience.
People always asked her where she was going . . . Not fully knowing herself, she answered with a smile: “I’m going in the right direction.”
The more clarity we take in, the less damage the storm brings with it, as we go through it. It is always our choice of having a breakdown or a breakthrough. We don’t have to get lost drifting in the “good old days” feeling sorry for ourselves. We don’t try to avoid the truths that the storm reveals, by using drugs or alcohol or sex to escape. We cannot become who we wish to be, if we don’t push forward and leave the past behind us.
Goals are my north star. My compass. The map that guides me along the road I wish to travel. Goals are motivations with wind in their sails, they carry me forward despite the storms.

LemonadeMakers don’t wait for the world to change into a better place. They change themselves, guided by their journey to their own True North. LemonadeMakers are driven by the passion they have in life, to do and be extraordinary. As each individual, upon each individual changes, the world changes with them. It may not happen overnight, and it may not happen as fast as we want it to happen. But is will happen.
Like a magnetized needle floating on a surface of oil, resistance will unfailing point to true north – meaning that calling or action it most wants to stop us from doing. We can use this. We can use it as a compass. We can navigate by resistance, letting it guide us to that calling or action that we must follow before all others. Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.
– Steven Presfield
LemonadeMakers are all just walking each other home. Home is not where we were born. It is not our current place of residence. It is a place that we find deep within ourselves. It is that space in our heart, where our soul resides. It is the place where we discover our true self. And if the sun is too hot, or the rain is a down pouring torrent, or the snow becomes a blizzard, then we can be each a shelter for each other, until the path home becomes clear again.
Knowing my true north gives me the courage to focus my energy where I believe it should be, not according to what is popular or pleasing to others.
