“It almost makes you think that you are doing something wrong.” As a friend made this remark on our walk the other day, I realized I had heard some form of that comment quite a lot lately. “Why aren’t I able to move forward with my life?” is another popular question.
Yes, there are a lot of people feeling stuck these days. They’ve been focusing on creating something new for a while now. While their guidance tells them they are on the right path, and they know to trust what they are hearing, it’s hard not to question when dreams are taking longer to manifest.
My Records looped me back to this “doing something wrong” conversation as I slipped into a primo parking space in a very busy part of town this morning.
“Watch more consciously for these small synchronicities,” they suggested. “They are signs that you are in a natural alignment with the flow of your life.”
“It’s easy to believe you are not in sync with your guidance and your soul’s plan when it looks like little is changing in your 3D world,” they continued.
“So when the big things you are creating are not ‘here’ yet, watch for the appearance of the small yet perfect synchronicities.”
Then, as if they were flipping me through a magazine of my life, my Records showed me pictures of some things that had flowed to me.
Two days ago my plans for the afternoon seemed dashed by the power and Wi-Fi outages created by Hurricane Irma. Given what had happened further south, I was grateful we had no serious damage.
Still, the thought of a rain-soaked gloomy afternoon reading by flashlight was unappealing at best. Then I saw an ad for AAA and my Records chimed in.
“Call and see about getting your car in for service this afternoon,” they counseled. I’d taken my car to the dealership in Charlotte all these years, but there isn’t one in Asheville and I hadn’t found a mechanic since I moved.
“We have an opening at 1:00 today,” said the woman on the phone, seeming quite surprised. “If you live within 10 miles, our driver can take you home and pick you back up when your car is ready. Or, you are welcome to use our lounge. It’s stocked with beverages, TV and, of course, Wi-Fi.
Not only did I have a comfortable and productive afternoon, I saved hundreds over what I’d been paying at the dealership, found a replacement in their luggage department for something I lost last month, and happily headed home with all devices charged.
Not only that — you guessed it — the power was back on when I arrived.
Last weekend, all the ingredients for homemade organic vegetable soup were on sale. It was the perfect meal to heat up in a power outage, thanks to a gas stove that is old enough to be hand-lit when necessary.
I could go on about calls coming in just in time, and appointments getting jostled, then working even better than originally planned.
Are the bigger things I’m working on here as quickly as I’d hoped? No, not always. But the reminder from the Records to notice that my life is flowing easily in many smaller ways brings welcome calm after the storm.
