I have been experiencing many challenges surrounding my move across the country as a result of buying a 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid. There were a couple of things that needed to be fixed before it was going to be ready for the road. One very essential but wrong part was installed and it caused all kinds of havoc that has delayed my trip for two weeks and kept me in Chicago.
This situation pushed me to the edge and I had to take a strong stand for what I knew was right. Yet I still had to be willing to accept any results or consequences that were showing up. Gratefully the end appears to be at hand. The car company that I purchased this vehicle from is doing the right thing and is picking up the tab and helping me get the repairs completed in Chicago. It did not come easily but with consistency and faith, calling upon the presence I am grateful that a solution is at hand.
For one week this was not looking good and I felt like I was banging my head against the prevailing winds. Today while I was taking a walk on the dog friendly streets of downtown Chicago, I was also talking to God internally. Actually I was praying to God asking for some very decisive help with this. I know I was heard. There was a shift within me and my energy and I felt like something was going on, and indeed, things did change. I was suddenly getting a yes from the universe instead of running into the walls that I had been running into.
Love always answers us, but it does not always answer us right when we want it to. Love does not share our time frames. If we are persistent and willing to accept what is showing up in our lives with the best attitude that we can muster, when we are really giving forth our very best, that is when the universe comes through for us. It takes flexibility, humility and persistence. It takes surrender and the full realization that it is not “I” but the “Divine Presence and Holy Spirit” that I connect with that is my Source of life, that does all of the work when I ask from the right place within myself.
This has been a few weeks of powerful lessons around letting go and detachment to results. It included many opportunties to forgive myself for missing cues that might have saved me a lot of stress. It presented many situations that made me stretch and expand my awareness. These two weeks gave me pause to consider patterns that make life more harmonious or difficult depending on how we address them. I am deeply grateful to Spirit for the divine partnership that we share on this life journey and I know there are many more steps on the stairway to self realization and awakening of the Christ nature within me. I am deeply grateful for the generosity and love of a few very precious friends that have been there for me during this process. They gave of their time and willingness to jump in and pack boxes, throw out stuff and challenge me when I held on to things I no longer needed. Their loving support, dialog and encouragment has helped me remain more balanced, sane and functional through it all. The Beatles had it so right, “We really can get by with a little help from our friends.”
