"I'm leaving on a jet plane.....don't know when I'll be back again......"
Thie summer thus far has been one of not much movement for me. I have felt like nothng much is going on. Yes, the weather has been fantastic, which as a Pacific Northwest resident is miracululous and much appreciated. But, it has been very quiet outwardly and lots of stuff going on internally.
The energies have been challenging to say the least. Emotions have burbled up to be dealt with. One day I found myself in feeling very angry. There was no ryhme or reason for it and that can be difficult to deal with when you can't pinpoint it.
However, I have my trust tools and life experience that I use to move through it with little impact to be seen. Unfortunately, anger has an energy of it's own and attracts things to be angry at, like slow drivers. These are times when I seek refuge in the woods or in my bed. My motto is this too shall pass. Nothing is static in life. Life is in constant flux and you can move with it or buck it. Accept it or yell at it.
Yet, the good news is that it doesn't matter what you do in the long run. It is all just experience. The question becomes what do you want to do with it? What does it mean to you?
I asked whether the anger was mine and darn it-yes it was. I heard from my guides that it was old anger coming up to be released. I'm okay with that-not thrilled but okay, but how does it get better and what else is possible?
Thank goodness for the Access Consciousness tools that I have, the nurturing forests and the comfort of my cushy bed!
But, there was a turning point and it happened overnight. It didn't really but it felt like that. I woke up one morning and I was excited about my world again. I felt energized, happy and looking forward to what was next.
What is next is that I am leaving on a jet plane to visit a dear friend for a week. There will be walks on the beach, much talk and laughter and a few glasses of wine. The change will do me good.
So, what do you do when you feel like your world is static and it feels like you are pushing a rope uphill? I can tell you that if you ask a few questions (these two Access Consciousness questions being very good ones)
"How does it get better? "
If you do you will find that you open yourself up to new possibilities, ones that will not appear unless you are open to them. The universe has our backs. It knows what we are up too and it strives to answer our questions in any way that it can, but if you don't ask you will never find out what else is out there.
Life has a funny way of giving you exactly what you expect and if you expect that it can get better and that there is another way, even if you don't at that moment know what it is, then you will find that it can get better.
I asked those two questions frequently when dealing with a lengthy audit by the CRA. It was finally resolved and it turned out very well. I also knew that in my heart of hearts that it would. Did that mean I didn't fret? NO-I did! On and off I would fret but it wasn't for extended periods of time. I am getting better at this thing called life and I placed my trust in the universe.
Are you ready to? What would happen if you asked those two questions?
I dare you to! I triple dare you to! All the time-"good" or "bad" situations and find out for yourself what else is possible. You just might find yourself pleasantly surprised.
