Thank GOD It’s Over!
Thank GOD it’s over! This could very well have been the most intense year of your life. I know it was for me. Were you faced with having to make a life altering decision? Did a long term relationship end? Did you agonize over a career or job change? Did someone you love choose to either leave the planet or leave you? Did you have real estate issues? Did you suffer a serious illness or injury?
Did you chose to finally have that conversation with GOD where you surrendered to divine will and let go of your “I want” statements? (You know . . . I want my soul mate. I want recognition. I want to be loved. I want to be married. I want a publisher. I want a promotion. I want to be wealthy. I want to do it my way.) “I want” statements are expressions of a fear that Spirit/Universe is not paying attention to us, and in fact has abandoned us. (Refer to the abandonment article on my website.)
As I mentioned in the July issue, the global pattern for 2004 was the need to make life changing decisions without knowing what the outcome would be. There was no “Plan B” this year. Our faith was tested. For the first time in our lives we could not predict, or imagine, either the outcome or the consequences of our life altering decision. We needed to trust what felt right . . . whether that feeling of rightness came from our gut or from our heart it was our soul/spirit speaking to us.
What our soul/spirit tried to communicate to us this year was the need to embrace our divinity. How do we embrace our divinity, we develop the courage to do what we love instead of doing to be loved or to maintain control. Until we embrace our divinity by surrendering to the will of Spirit/Universe, we will never have the faith to “allow” life to happen; we will always try to “make” it happen. And as we all have experienced, the more we try to make something happen the more elusive it becomes, and the more frustrated we become.
This past June, I had a conversation with the GOD energies. I said that “I’ve done it my way for the past 9 years and things have not worked the way I wanted them to work. I haven’t been published. I haven’t achieved recognition for my work. I’m not wealthy. I’m not in a loving relationship. My best friend moved away. My mom transitioned to the other side. I don’t want to live in south Florida anymore. I’m tired of living in poverty while I pursue my passion (Numerology). I need help. I surrender . . . thy will is my will, Spirit. I am ready to allow you to guide me.” What happened next was absolutely amazing!
When I awoke the next morning, I felt a peacefulness I hadn’t felt in years. I had a few hundred dollars, no job prospects, and nowhere to live. I made plans to leave south Florida and return to New Mexico. I drove to Albuquerque and put my stuff in storage. My plan was to drive through New Mexico, southwest Colorado, and eastern Arizona until I found a place that resonated in my heart. To make a very long story shorter, I eventually wound up in Aztec, New Mexico. Even though the local school districts were not hiring, I left employment applications with them anyway. I was called by a local district and offered a teaching position in special education (even had an offer to teach at the local community college). The farm house I lived in 7 years ago became available and I moved back in. I stopped pursuing clients, classes and workshops. I let go of my fear of abandonment and guess what happened: Clients began calling from around the country. I’m teaching numerology as an enrichment class at school. I was invited to accompany a group of Navajo on a pilgrimage to some of their sacred sights. I get to roam the high desert and explore a myriad of energy vortexes. I’ve never been happier or more joyful. Everyday I ask Spirit, “How does it get any better than this?” And everyday Spirit shows me.
We are at a fork in the cosmic road. Which path will you choose; the path of fear or the path of faith?
Let go of your abandonment fears and learn to listen and obey your higher Self; it will guide you to the next level of enlightenment. It already knows that the outcome will be positive.
