How many times have we found ourselves in situations where we feel like the world has dealt us a bad hand in the game of life? I’m sure each and every one of us could share a story or two..or more! Here’s some food for thought….
What if it wasn’t a bad hand? What if it was really the world providing us with an opportunity to experience life in a different way? What if what you asked for, is what you actually received? What if what you asked for just didn’t show up in the form you expected it to … and because you had an expectation of how it should show up, you were disappointed because you were unable to see it arrive?
If you’re like me, I have found that any time I’ve had an expectation it turned out to be a huge disappointment. There is a big difference between holding the energy of awareness to what your ask is, and having a defined and concluded expectation. Conclusion and expectation are forms of control that will block the flow of the Universe’s ability to offer you an amazing solution and/or experience of which you are asking for. Asking for what you want, and allowing yourself to be in a space of awareness for it to show up, will bring forth opportunities and wonderful tidbits of treasure that you didn’t even know were even possible.
I’d like to share a personal experience of where I had asked Spirit (God/Universal Source) to be able to learn something new in the realm of our abilities/gifts, and intuitive knowing; and how my ask showed up. The response to my request could easily be deemed traumatic to what I was asking for. Yet for me, it was the most amazingly wonderful response I could have ever received.
Over a decade ago, when I resided in Alaska, I had taken numerous classes with a Medicine Woman who was my teacher. While she shared so many amazing teachings with me, I had felt like I had hit a plateau and that I wasn’t learning anything new. I wanted to know everything about the power that was within me, especially what was beyond the considerations of the societal norm. There was something inside of me that knew that we had abilities way beyond that which we were aware of, and I was demanding to know what it was!
One day before one of my evening classes, I had diligently asked and prayed to learn something new that night. My prayer was filled with an amazing amount of gratitude. It was loving, yet firm - almost to the point of demanding. I was asking my question, and I announced that I was more then willing and ready to receive the answer. Oh boy, was I (and the entire class) ever in for a surprise! That particular evening was an extremely windy day (50-60 mph winds). One could easily (and appropriately) have called it the winds of change…
My teacher, along with her husband, would hold classes in a studio that was located on their property about 20 ft. from the house. The studio had no restroom facilities, so when we needed to use the bathroom we would walk out of the studio and follow a slab path that led to the backdoor of the home where the bathroom was located. When visiting the restroom, one would also be happily greeted by their dog.
During one of the break’s in the class that evening, I walked alone to the main house to use the restroom. As I was leaving, their dog began to act strange and look at me funny. He was slightly restless, and he kept tilting his head. His eyes had a pleading look about them - yet not in the begging sort of way. It's hard to explain the behavior in a way that makes sense. All I can say is that this was not his normal behavior.
As I was closing the door on my way out of the house, I assured him that his “people” would be done soon, and he would be reunited with them shortly. I then turned around and took one step forward when suddenly it felt like someone had taken their arm and purposefully smacked my legs behind my knee’s, causing me to go down so fast that I was unable to block the fall. Remember, I was alone. There wasn’t a person who appeared out of nowhere - at least not from the dimension we reside in…(wink wink) It was early Fall (no pun intended haha - the season was Autumn) with no ice, no rain, and no puddles on the ground.
Down I went like a a tall tree crashing to the ground. My head slammed so hard into one of the pavements of slab - it bounced a few times like a ball. (Another interesting tidbit about me: I had already experienced whiplash a couple of times in my life, so this wasn’t my first rodeo.) I knew what I was in for - or at least, I thought I did.
As I laid on the cold pavement, too scared to move, I started to cry out for help. I found the wind carried my cries into the opposite direction of the studio. No one could hear me, and no one was coming to look for me. I was forced to take action.
With my head feeling like it was attached to my body like a large marble on a wet noodle, I was somehow able to get myself up onto my knees and slowly crawl my way back to the door of the studio. Still on all 4s, I knocked on the door and waited… no one answered.
