The search for new space - a shamanic quandary?

Recently the doctor who owns the space where my wife and I have our offices told us that we needed to find a new location as our office spaces were going to be needed for her practice. This space is a hard act to follow, as it is very much what we want in office space. It's an old house that was completely renovated, with wonderful natural light, hardwood floors, high ceilings, reception area, and an elevator.

So – for the past month, we have been scouring Cincinnati for something that would seem like a step up instead of a spatial demotion. We've narrowed the search down to a few places, each of which has its upside and its downside, which is where the quandary lies: In asking the spirits for their input, I keep getting "it's up to you. Make a decision." This is the same sort of situation so many of us find ourselves in. Presented with multiple choices, none of which is clearly the "right" one, we wish that the "Universe" would magically make the decision for us. Instead, it is a part of the process of awakening (and maturation) that we must make the choice ourselves – accepting the responsibility for whatever comes of it.

So - sometime in the next week or two – we will bite the proverbial bullet and make a choice between these different locations...assuming that the spirits don't present us with yet another option which is so clearly superior to the others....

I'll let you know.
