My computer crashed and I didn’t panic
Posted on 05 October 2016
My computer crashed last week. Blitzed out! No recovery. I had a trip the next day, an online class to teach from my hotel room, and very little time to remedy this problem.
My job: don’t panic, stay relaxed, be open to receive.
The Universe’s job: rearrange itself for what I am creating next.
The creation: a sexy new computer, purchased easily with extra money I wasn’t expecting, that arrived the morning I was headed to the Apple Store in an extra 30 minutes I didn’t think I was going to have. For real! It was a no-sweat, out-of-the-blue miracle!
I never know how it’s going to happen.
It never happens the way I think it will.
When I am light and spacious, it unfolds with ease.
When I am tight and contracted, it can feel like I’m banging my head against the metaphorical brick wall of my life no matter which direction I turn.
When I am open, something beautiful emerges from the chaos, and it blows me away with its speed.
When I am closed, something beautiful emerges from the chaos, and it takes me a long time to notice it.
Something beautiful and new always emerges from the chaos.
How do I stay open?
I soften. I lower my barriers and walls. I ask a lot of questions. I follow the lightness. I notice my ordered expectations and judgments. Then I expand beyond them.
These are the tools in my toolbox that I use every day. I teach them too! We live in a world in which walls and judgments are normal, and stress is expected. Not in my reality, and it doesn’t have to be the case in yours.
The Inner Circle of Luminaries is open for Enrollment this week (until Friday!). Our focus for the next three months is on Consciousness Tools for Changing Anything! If you’d like more tools for your toolbox, join us for the term!
We’re reading Being You Changing the World by one of my favorite teachers on the planet, Dr. Dain Heer.
And today… soften and relax.
In your openness, you know what to do, where to go and what to say. You can’t plan for everything, and you don’t have to.
Life’s got your back.
