I think all of us, on a regular basis face situations that we’d rather not. They range from being stuck in traffic, to having things break, to having people behave in ways that don’t resonate with what we’d prefer. There are even days when we don’t look or act the way we’d prefer! However, as the angels say, surrendering to what is actually in front of us, rather than getting stuck in wishful thinking makes the journey through life a lot more pleasant, and makes the unpleasant things pass much more easily.
As I type this, the electrician is running to the store because I didn’t realize one of my electrical boxes was a different size. The carpet cleaners from the restoration company will soon arrive and may have to step over him. My dog is spazzing out because nothing looks normal and she likes her routines! And it is all going to be ok, It’s Monday and I’m doing my newsletter while lights are blinking, furniture is piled in the middle of the rooms, and the rest of life goes on.
I would have rather avoided getting sick, starting a fire, having to unpack 60 boxes that the cleaning crews carefully packed, moving furniture bigger than me, spending 24 hrs with my elder dog at a hotel while ozone machines ran in my house, and so much more that has transpired over the last month. But in each case I just surrendered and brought as much love as I could to each situation. In return the people working on my house were so good to me I was blown away. They did great work, admitted interest in spiritual topics, called me “peaceful,” “refreshing”, “fun to work with,” etc. In my mind they brought their kindest and best selves to the situation too. I think when we do, we inspire others to do the same!
Instead of beating myself up for “mistakes” and moaning about inconveniences, I just embraced it all head on. A month after my “mistakes,” my home, rugs, curtains, couch covers, duct work, walls, and carpets are probably cleaner than the day I moved in. My body is happy with my new diet. I now know guys I can call upon for future work on the house. Spiritually and emotionally I have become stronger. I’m excited about life, filled with new energy and cannot wait to teach my upcoming class.
So this week when things don’t look as planned or don’t look the way you want, bring your best self to what IS happening. I guarantee a happier time and a much quicker trip to ease and grace!
Have a happy week!
ps – for those of you who want an excellent medium, my friend Jim Law has finally started doing readings! He is amazing! I’ve been teasing him for years about sending him clients because he is so good. He gets names, dates, and detailed information. He sees movies in his head. He talks to angels, relatives, animals, you name it!! He does readings by phone and his rates and policies are simi liar to mine. You can email him at email@example.com. Feel free to pass on his info. I’m just so excited he has gone public with his work. He’s got a million talents but this one is extraordinary.
