I KNOW better, but it sometimes happens anyway. The old behaviors and negative energies creep in ever so slowly when I’m not awake and plugged into my Power Source. When I compare, I despair – simple as that. I judge myself to be not good enough and not doing enough. Fear and panic set in and I lose my peace.
This recently happened to me when I compared myself with a friend and the work she was doing. That old belief that I have to push myself, work harder and make things happen reared its ugly head. I knew I was in trouble when I saw it escalating and started to feel overwhelmed. I sat in front of my computer, put my hands on my face and prayed the serenity prayer and asked for help. The prayer worked and within a few minutes, I was back to my center and the truth of who I am as a child of God – a magnificent, radiant being who has gifts to share with the world.
Instead of rushing around “doing” more in an effort to achieve my goals, I want to experience more of this feminine energy and allow it to permeate my life, which requires “being” and allowing myself to receive what I need in the moment and trusting that is enough. Whenever I do that, it feels good and I am more peaceful and balanced. I am learning to go within and trust that my feelings are guiding me, and that I will know what the next inspired action is, instead of trying to make things happen.
In my last divine download, I shared about how the Ladybug had “found me” after choosing an animal card with the Ladybug on it the week before. The message on the card said that I was lucky and to be open to receive abundance. Well, it happened again this weekend – more Ladybugs – not once, but 3 times.
I went to my favorite consignment store to buy myself a small gift for Valentine’s Day. While in the dressing room, my eyes were drawn to the painting on the wall. Yes, flowers, bees and Lady Bugs! Thank you God was all I could say. Shortly afterwards, another Ladybug “showed up.” My daughter Mary gave me a new strainer to make my herbal teas with. I put it on the seat of my car as I drove home. For some reason, I glanced over at it and spotted the Ladybug sticker over the price tag. You can imagine my joy and excitement.
My friend Mary stopped by on Valentine’s Day and gave me a small red heart box. I thought for sure it was candy. You can imagine my surprise when I opened the box and in it was a pair of white socks with red hearts and pink Lady Bugs. I am wearing the socks daily as a reminder to be open to receive abundance in my life. I am allowing myself to receive whatever God wants to give me.
May you BE open to receive.
