Going with the Synchronicitous Flow…

Yes I did just make up the word ‘synchronicitous’ I liked the way it sounded!

During my weekly skype meeting with my mastermind group, I said that instead of trying to implement a routine or structure to the week, and beat ourselves up if we don’t manage to achieve all of our weekly goals, we should go with the flow. That if anything unexpected or unplanned came up, we should just go with it, and see what happens, rather than trying to fight it or be irritated by it.

Well, I have certainly had to go with the flow this week!!

On Monday, I was steaming through my goal list, really getting things done, when bam! I knocked my glass of water onto my keyboard. Cue swear words, masses of tissues and the hair dryer coming out! I thought I may have gotten away with it, but then my keys started to do funny things, and I started to freak out!

Thoughts that ran through my head – I haven’t got time for this… I can’t afford to buy a new laptop or have it repaired… I don’t want to lose any of my work on the laptop… etc.

Basically, all my thoughts were based on fear and lack. To counteract those thoughts, I kept saying to myself – It’ll be fine, there is a reason for everything, go with the flow etc. I also asked the angels for help.

After taking the internal keyboard out and drying underneath, the laptop wouldn’t start at all, so I called a local computer repair centre and asked if they would have a look. I went there immediately, and he looked at it straight away. By now I had calmed myself a little, and he quickly deduced that I had killed the keyboard. He went online to see about ordering a new one, and it was actually very inexpensive to replace. Cue sigh of relief. He leant me a plug-in keyboard while I waited for the new one to be delivered and then I went into town to see my friend in Peace of Stone.

We chatted for a while, then I suddenly realised how hungry I was. I thought about going to the chippy, but for some weird reason, got back to the car having forgotten to go in there. So I decided to stop by the village shop on the way back and get some eggs to make courgette pancakes instead.

When I got to the village shop, I paused to read the notices on the board, which I don’t normally do, and I saw an ad looking for someone to create videos and presentations. I took down the number, called it up, and ended up meeting the guy on Tuesday and getting the work.

So the moral of this long tale of seemingly mundane incidents and decisions?

By going with the flow, and staying as positive as possible, a seemingly ‘bad’ incident, led to a great opportunity. It also made me take some time out from working to clear out my office, as one of the reasons I knocked my water over was due to the cluttered desk and sheer amount of stuff everywhere. So I now have a lovely tidy office, and I even rearranged it so the room looks twice as big, and I now have a wonderful view (see photo) It also reminded me to back things up more often, just in case.

My new view!

My new view!

And as an extra bonus, I now have a super clean keyboard with no dust or bits of food stuck between the keys!!

 

 

PS. I do have pictorial evidence of my cluttered office, and of what it looks like now, but to be honest the before photos are just too embarrassing to post, which is why I have posted the deer picture instead!

Letting Go of Old Wounds

This week I had a wonderful question sent to me, to ask Amethyst how to let go of childhood wounds. You can see Amethyst’s response by watching the reading below.

You are so intelligent, talented and beautiful!

What went through your mind when you read the post title? Did you laugh? Did you think – ‘Okay, what does she want?’ Did you think, or even say out loud – ‘Don’t be ridiculous.’?

Or did you smile and say – ‘Thank you.’ ?

Just purely from my own experience and observations, most people tend to be in the first camp. (Or is it mainly a British thing?) Because it’s difficult to receive compliments. Usually we brush it off – ‘Oh, don’t be silly, I’m really not that awesome.’ or ‘This old thing? It doesn’t really fit me properly, it looks better on my sister.’ Or we throw the compliment back at the person – ‘You look gorgeous too! Are those new shoes? They’re lovely!’

But have you really considered what you are doing when you are unable to receive and fully accept a compliment? Imagine that the compliments were really gifts, or, if you like, money. If someone gave you £20, for no reason other than they wanted you to have it, would you throw it on the ground? Would you give it back to them immediately? Would you laugh in their face and tell them not to be so ridiculous?

I would hope not.

There are those of us who love to give. We love to make others happy, and we run ourselves ragged trying to please others (many of these people are Incarnated Angels, which I talk a little about in my latest oracle card reading on Youtube) but quite often, amazing givers are terrible at receiving. And they’re even worse at asking for help when they really need it.

Doorway to PAM

Though I am more of an Old Soul than an Angel, Earth Angels in general have this similar problem of being too giving. I find it hard to ask for help, and sometimes even harder to accept it. A while back, I bit the bullet and wrote a blog post asking for help, and as a result of that post, I have developed amazing friendships with people who genuinely want to help me and see me do well. At times, I’ve found it hard to accept their help, but I’ve come to realise, that I’m helping them by receiving the help that they are offering. And when possible, I find ways to help them, so there is a healthy flow back and forth, (but not in a throw it back in their face kind of way.)

In the last couple of weeks, I have been organising a party to end all parties, for my 30th Birthday. Though I already had many of the decorations and things from the previous two Harry Potter themed parties I’ve thrown, there was still a lot more to do, as I am transforming the entire house and parts of outside too. It was a little overwhelming to say the least. Especially with my work schedule and writing my new book etc.

So my amazing friend, Liz Lockwood, and my awesome sister, Liz Gordon, and my fab mother Sally Byrne, all offered their help. At first, I was like – no, no, it’s all fine, I can do it. But after they repeated their offer of help a few more times, I finally said, actually, I really could do with some help. And do you know what? With their amazing creative input, the party is now going to be epic. It’s a team effort now, (along with the help of my partner and his three kids) and I know that everyone (myself included) will have the most amazing time. All because I finally accepted help that was being offered to me.

It’s hard work at first, accepting a compliment with a smile and a ‘thank you’, and accepting the help or the money that is offered. But it’s worth persevering. Because not only are you telling the Universe that you are open to receiving the abundance that is available to you, you are also making others feel good, because they have been able to give to you. And they have been able to make a difference in your life.

So here it is – your first chance to receive and completely accept a compliment:

You are a fabulous person, who has a wonderful, kind heart, and who brings joy to everyone around you.

 

Let me know how you did 🙂

Have you asked the Angels for help today? Or the Faeries? Because they are just waiting for you to say the words. I realised today that I had been getting overwhelmed by the amount of work I need to do, … Continue reading
