It’s been a Full Moon and the Winter or Summer Solstice depending which side of this amazing plant you’re on which is an unusual event.
It’s also an amazing time to let go of anything holding you back and set some new intentions.
I was chatting to a friend today who mentioned that they had been praying really hard for something lately, and had handed over the outcome to God. (I have never really prayed or believed in it until recently (erm today!) and my opinion is being completely changed and opened up-again!) They had prayed : ‘If my time is better served helping people, and not worrying about this outcome, and if you want me to do that then please help me.’ Guess what, everything lined up to the $ and the day was saved!
Then later this afternoon I was listening to the book Spirit Junkie by Gabby Bernstein, and she mentioned a prayer she said often to surrender to a higher power and allow her ego and fear to release and hand over the outcome to the divine (or whatever you want to call it). I rewound the recording to write down the prayer word for word.
This is where the story gets a little spookier…. I randomly had my copy of The Law of Divine Compensation by Marianne Williamson sitting next to me, i read it a year ago and I just pulled it off the shelf for a re-read while up in Byron Bay this week (my holiday reads used to be trashy fiction- oh how times have changed!). I decided to open it to a page I’d dog-eared the corner of and started to read….and guess what it quoted the EXACT prayer again. TWICE in about 2 mins!!! (The Prayer originally comes from A Course in Miracles which they both teach from.)
I said aloud, ‘alright, alright I get it, I need to surrender!!!’
I got the message….3 times in a day…
It wasn’t the first time I’d heard this, nor will it be the last, sometimes we need to hear a message a few times for it to sink in!
Then it got even spookier (i had already written this email and used the language above- this is an edit)….a few chapters on Gabby shares that at a point when she was looking for guidance she was drawn to a book, it turned out to by A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson, and she opened the book to a page she had dog-eared!! (WTF!!!) And read a passage that she needed to hear. ‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. ‘We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.’
Then just as i heard this message, I stopped in at a little heath bar to get a raw chocolate treat, and the guy serving started talking about life coaching, motivational speaking and the need to surrender-I kid you not, I smiled, told him it was my word of the day, and enjoyed my healthy desert!
When we hold on too hard to a desired outcome sometimes we take away the opportunity for miracles.
I’m open and available for miracles….I surrender, I surrender, I surrender!
And the stunning prayer? Which is, in the words of Marianne; ‘The best way to summon in your true calling….’
‘Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say, and to whom?’
Is there something you could let go of? Are you holding on too tightly?
Let go, release it, trust and let me know if any magic happens!
I’d love to know your thoughts,
