People love to make lists of what they want to get or their next steps with upgrades. In the almost twenty years that I’ve lived in my home. I can honestly say that those things on those lists have come true a lot. In the last two years, I decided that I would burn them. This way they come faster and I don’t have to wait around. Many of those things on those lists have been gifted to me by other people.
Some I’ve brought in myself, but the big-ticket items have been gifted to me in ways that I could never have seen coming. I am thankful in so many ways. It has brought me great people into my life. It has removed obstacles and people who were keeping me from growing. I have learned so many things that I could not have learned in other ways.Oh I’m not going to say I can’t be hard-headed. We all can be and we get lessons that teach us to pay attention more.
It also gifts us with wisdom to be shared with others to try to protect them from some missteps. Just because we’ve had missteps doesn’t mean other people will. We are all different. We all have different strengths and weaknesses. The weaknesses are to teach us how to be stronger. Then the Universe comes back in different ways to see if you have really learned those lessons. It’s kind of like your final exam.
This isn’t to say that you can’t cuss the Universe or angels out when life is being frustrating. I say go ahead! Embrace your dark side, you have to sometime. That’s how you make yourself whole. This cutting things out of your life that you don’t like about yourself doesn’t always help you to heal. When you face your demons. You take back your power and take no prisoners. You set boundaries and don’t put up with shit any more. This is a good thing.
It’s more real! So write that list! The skies the limit or not! After all we are unlimited beings. Have fun with that list. There are no shoulds or should nots! You might be surprised what the Universe has in store for you. You need to be open. Allow people to give to you. If your more of a taker, than try giving for a change to things your passionate about. Giving and receiving are part of what the Universe is all about. It should make you feel more alive or more present.
Many years ago, I decided I was going to give to a person who had a change of luck. It turned out to be a very growing experience. At the time, stores usually had buy one get one free. This worked well with groceries. This person had children and her boyfriend at the time had walked out with all of their food.
The weirdest part was when I looked at her boyfriend at the time. I remember thinking to myself. Could I picture this person ever being violent to someone and my answer was yes. Not even two weeks later, this man beat her. A new person came into her life and her life started to turn around. Mine was about to get interesting. I went to my five-year reunion. I met someone who I hadn’t seen in a long time.
We will experience slumps in our life when we get off the path of paying attention. When we’re sleep walking through life instead of actually participating in it. When you participate and are fully awake in your life. You will notice the signs when your on the right path or wrong path. When your on your path, things get easier. When you have a new lesson or challenge to learn. You will see some resistance, but once you’ve mastered it! It will get easier. If your on the wrong path, it will feel like your going through sludge. The gifts come easier when your on your path.
