Time to Surrender

Last week I had a really frustrating day. It was one of those days where long-awaited things fizzled out and died, and things that ought to be quick an easy to complete, took ages, and then still didn’t get done because of an unforeseen hiccup.

It’s days like that when I realise that I am not going with the flow. That I am stubbornly holding on to how I think things should be, how I think things should go, and I’m not listening to the Angels, not noticing the signs, and I am in resistance of my reality.

So, how to get into the flow?

Surrender. Relax. Listen.

Pause for a moment and just breathe.

I have come to realise, that you can plan as much as you want, you can daydream of the outcome as much as you like, but if the Universe has something else in mind for you, then it will happen their way, whether you like it or not!

I find that doing something creative, particularly something physical (not digital) helps me to get into the flow. I’ve recently got back into knitting, and have really got into make jewellery (I made the above necklace when trying to get back into the flow!) and I’ve also been doing more photography. I find that making something gets me out of my head and into my heart, and back into the flow, and I usually end up with something handmade and awesome at the end of it too!

I also like going for a walk, as getting outside in nature, and breathing in fresh air and getting some exercise helps to lessen the resistance, and allow the ideas and opportunities to flow again.

What do you do to get into the flow? Do you notice when you are stuck and in resistance?

It was in the stars all along…

I had a funny realisation today. I was looking after my landlady’s shop for a few hours, while she had a much-needed break, and I was having a great time, chatting to customers and also to the tarot reader who was in today.

We got onto the subject of psychometry, (as you do) which is when you can pick up impressions from an object, because of the energy that has been attached to it.

I told her about a lucky charm keyring I bought, which brought me terrible luck whenever I wore it (I had turned it into a necklace). And I gave it to a lady who could do psychometry, and she said the person who had made it had attached the energy of bad luck to it. So I gave up wearing it and got rid of it, which was difficult to do, because it was expensive, and by a designer I really liked.

I got my purse out of my bag to show the tarot reader what I meant, because my purse is by the same company. I couldn’t remember the name of the company, so I searched the purse, and there it was, imprinted in the leather:

So it turns out, that I have been carrying and using a purse for the last 7 years, that bore the name of the place I was meant to move to.

Coincidence? Angelic intervention? Meaningless? Meant to be? What do you think?
