AHA, It finally hit me tonight why I’ve been having some recent challenges. Isn’t that always the question when something bad happens? Why? Why? Why? 🙂 I picked up on the signs and symbols over the past few days but have been in the dark as to the message until tonight. My husband said one sentence and it clicked! Aha!
I walked out to my car a few months ago and noticed the windshield was cracked. Have no idea how it happened. The kids’ playroom also has a window that is cracked. Again, have no idea how it happened but thought maybe a ball hit it. *Note to self, gotta replace these at some point when I have more funds. My husband’s truck is 4 months old and what do you know, we notice a chip out of the windshield last week. Two days ago, the full moon is high and my son throws the last golf ball,(we threw all the others out to prevent this), through one of the double paned windows in the playroom. Tonight, our refrigerator has died with almost everything in it ruined after I just went to the grocery store yesterday. All while I’m in the middle of scouring the internet looking for a home to downsize to. (6 bedrooms for 4 people is just excessive and unnecessary), grrr! I can feel those Why’s? creeping up again…
I get many messages as I drive, so I’m driving yesterday and realize “why is there so much broken glass around us lately?” What is the message? What is the universe trying to show/tell me?
After the refrigerator goes out, my husband says “we are putting a stop to this right now, nothing else is broken”. There it is, presto, voila! We usually don’t talk like this but lately we have been using language that does not do our future any justice. I’ve been using the statement, “I’m broke!”, a lot lately. Even though we are not really broke. We don’t need fixing. We are abundant in being able to meet our needs and wants both materially and spiritually. We are abundant in love, family and friends. Abundant in experiences that continue to feed our growth and evolution. Yet still, I have been using this awful word as a way to justify my need to downsize and live more with adventure and less with “things”.
I always say the Universe conspires to give us whatever we focus on or say we want. Here I am, saying I am this thing, when I am really not and now look! Everything around me is breaking by the minute. The thing is I want to “live with less” on my own terms, not have it taken from me. So THAT’s the lesson! Communicate With Purpose. Communicate to reflect the outside world I want to experience. You know what they say, “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it”.
Sometimes we just have to get out of our own way…
