Don’t you just love it when the cosmos gives you a little shout out? I had a shift of perception this morning, an opening where my soul slipped through with an insight. In that moment when I went from feeling stuck to feeling grateful. Nice!
We all have blue moments, right? It’s part of the work we do, just becoming aware of the moment we fall under what Robert Ohotto calls a cultural spell, start believing that it’s all real out there, when it really is just a movie of our making. The number one fix for that is meditation and/or prayer. So simple, and yet so easy for the ego to say, “Honey, don’t you worry your pretty little head about that. You’re so good, so spiritually evolved, you can get by without it, just for today!” Trust me on this one: doesn’t work!
Another trick I use is to keep myself surrounded by spiritual masters. Sometimes this means going to a church service, a lecture, a concert, a reading. I recently had two different friends from different corners of the country come to the town where I live for their work. I had heard about James O’Dea coming to lecture at the Unity Church that I attend, and really wanted to see him. I had a dilemma for about half a minute about how to spend time with my girls, then I realized that they would both enjoy hearing O’Dea speak. I told them that our Sunday program included a church service with a world-class speaker, then brunch at my fav local egg and toast joint. It was fantastic, and we all had a great time! (Except for darling P, who was not fooled by that hand-holding Unity business for a minute!)
Another way to connect is with the amazing collection of spirit-related videos on YouTube. Do we live at a great time on this planet or what?? Feeling a little blue? Check out Jessica’s affirmations on YouTube! Want to connect to something bigger than yourself? Listen to Eckhart Tolle on YouTube! So easy.
This morning I found my brain worrying a minor life issue like a dog with a bone. I refused to go into a huge drama about it, but I still have some energy around it, or it wouldn’t be an issue at all, it wouldn’t resonate at all. Anyway, I started to go there. You know what I mean!
Then, in the midst of looking for a nice morning message to distract myself, I found a video that contained beautiful celestial music, with images of great, galactic spans of space filled with pinwheels of magnetic gas and columns of light and star dust, and my puny little problems just vanished. Where was Earth? Where was I? It was like looking into forever. I mean, in the perspective of eternity, does it really matter if that parking ticket was fair or unfair? Really? Come on! Get over it already! Love, C
My two cents: I am the writer, director, and actor in the movie of my life and I can change it in any moment.
I used to pray for miracles, look for them, hope for them. Now I expect them. And because I expect them and appreciate when they happen they come more frequently and in many different ways.
I got a very expensive traffic ticket in the mail last week, I had been working on my feelings of prosperity and money really not being an issue for me. Money is energy and really neutral, it has whatever power or feeling you put behind it. So anyway, got this ticket, right before I am ready to leave for vacation and I have to say my first reaction was I was pissed. I was caught on video making a right hand turn on a red light. I remember doing that, and the light had just turned red. Yeah right, so what, what I did was wrong so I had to pay. They had a video of me so even if I was going to fight it, which I wasn’t, no winning that one.
When I opened the ticket and saw the fine I had to put it aside for the night, I felt sick to my stomach and knew I had to get into a better space before I could deal with it. I had a feeling I got that ticket for a reason so I wanted to sleep on it. I had been doing so well on my money not being an issue for me, money was flowing in and flowing out, I had plenty and I was feeling good about it. Now this, okay well I did say I wanted to master this and I was being given an opportunity here.
When I woke up in the morning the first thing I thought was I would call and ask if I could make payments on the ticket, explain I was leaving for vacation and that I needed more time. That didn’t feel good, I was going to try to convince a total stranger that I couldn’t afford the ticket? That was not in alignment with what I was trying to master regarding money. Uggg, I did my morning meditation and it came to me, I would pay the whole thing right now. I just knew that by doing that everything would be fine and I would be lined up to what I was trying to accomplish around prosperity.
As soon as I made that decision, I felt like well, a million bucks. Another thing that happened after I made that decision was I opened a pocket in my purse, a pocket that I know I looked through the day before when rounding up my checks from my clients for deposit and I found a stack of checks, $700 to be exact. Now that’s a miracle, oh and another thing, when I looked again at the ticket, I had read it wrong, it was $100 less than I thought it was. I think it was worth getting the ticket just to really get the lesson on prosperity. xo-K
My two cents: Miracles are everywhere, even where you least expect them.
