I would like to share an experience that occurred yesterday, an experience which turned a period of frustration into yet another reminder of how much help there is available to us from the universe.
Yesterday I spent about 25 minutes looking for a voucher. I was looking in drawers, cupboards, files of paper, and getting increasingly frustrated. Until I had a flashing thought; ask the angels for help.
A clear and distinct thought shot through the clutter of my mind; stop looking, and move back from the table.
This was the part that fascinated me the most; I had just asked for help yet when I received a message in return, I didn’t listen. I responded by thinking – yeah but I want to keep looking under the table because this is where I think it is…I can’t stop looking because I have to leave soon….blah blah excuse blah… And even though I had already been looking through the papers ‘filed’ under the table for a while, I still wanted to continue looking where my logic was telling me the voucher should be.
As I continued searching under the table I heard the same thought again, in the same distinct tone and clarity; stop looking, and move back from the table.
This time I listened, and even though I wasn’t clear on where to look after I stopped looking under the table, I followed the guidance anyway. I moved back, away from the table and paused. I stopped looking. In a moment of silence and non-action, I sat back on my heals and just enjoyed the nothingness. I allowed myself to stop even though part of my mind was telling me there was no way I should stop looking.
This time another thought appeared from the midst of the stillness that I had created through stopping; look in the wallets. ‘Wallets’ as a plural was weird and stood out, so I decided right away that must mean to look in my partner’s wallet. I got up and walked straight over to find his wallet, opened it up and pulled out a stack of cards…
BOOM! I found the voucher!
This experience made me realise how often we ignore intuition, wisdom, and guidance; even when we’ve just asked for it! Our logical, left-brain thinking often overrides our intuition, discounting the message or thought if it can’t immediately see how that could bring about the desired result. This kind of left-brained thinking often leads to feeling as though you’re living your life swimming upstream, struggling with thought and reason, and moving against the current.
When in any moment, you can just swivel around and cruise. Allowing, listening and acting on one small thought stemming from intuition propels you immediately back into the flow, even if you haven’t felt in the flow for years.
