My Car is Broken! Letting Things Be Easy.

Recently, I was caught in all the details of how to deal with my new (to me) car being super broken … the next steps seemed to overwhelm me: tow truck, where to take it, fear of it being irrepairable, etc.

Instead of taking any immediate action, I used my meditation techniques to work on my neutrality, and grounded out my fear and all of the effort I was feeling. Then I let it go for the night; I shut my analytical mind off and enjoyed the evening with my family. The next day, when I actually set out to take steps towards a solution, I did a google search using keywords that I hadn’t thought of previously – based on spur of the moment inspiration – and ended up speaking to a shop that I didn’t even know existed. They were located IN my neighborhood, and they sent someone over to my house, fixed the problem in less than 10 minutes, and didn’t even charge us.

The Universe is always conspiring to help you, if you just let it! Also, the present moment is where the MAGIC is.

Do you have an Everyday Miracle that that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear your stories!


Don’t Be Afraid To Jump

“How can you ever worry when you have seen your soul – your strength, your beauty, your golden wings. Jump into the abyss and you will fly.” – Deepak Chopra.

I came across this tweet on Twitter today. It is a basic concept that I have embodied with heart and soul for many years now, however the way Mr. Chopra phrased it on this day has struck me particularly hard because of how it is worded in a manner that paralleled a dream I had the night before last.

It was a very intense and clear dream. I was the passenger in a car driving on a beautiful, scenic and windy road. The driver was not recognizable to me in my consciousness, but I know she was a friend. In the back seat, my son was strapped into his carseat content and happy. We came around the corner to an amazing landscape of stark white snow and a wide open lake lay below the cliff in front of us, completely frozen over. Everything was icy-white with underlying tones of earth-brown. We were in awe and the driver said, “See, isn’t it beautiful?”. Just as I was about to agree, the road suddenly ended and we were catapulted off the cliff, headed straight into the icy abyss below us. I was struck with this immediate knowing that we were not going to survive. I right away had the thought that I needed to use my spiritual tools, most importantly energetically grounding myself and my son. It was instantaneous, this surrender and knowing that everything as I had known it was about to completely be gone. The sense of calm that came over me as I acknowledged this was surreal.
