That Time a Seeming Snafu Worked Out for the Best

Sometimes, out of a seeming snafu, the best things can happen. Last month, the Angel Hour had a HUGE technical glitch which resulted in 99% of the callers being on one conference line, and me being on another.

WHAAAAAAAT?
Initially, my reaction was very human. "HOW are there so few people on this call when so many signed up?" "What if this subject matter is not interesting to people and I am the only one perceiving things this way?" (The topic was Creating Balance in an Imbalanced World.)

I got my head together by reassuring myself that the Angels have NEVER in my life steered me wrong, no matter how strange the directive seemed at the time. This steered me back to the reason that I was doing this in the first place. The Angels had some very important information to share with those who wish to create the world as they want it to be. 
wisdom-92901_copyWhen things don't go according to plan, it is how we react that makes all the difference. Life is unpredictable and sometimes the only thing that you get to choose is your own behavior. In this particular situation, I knew that the show must go on and that I would figure it out later. The time and date were given to me by the Angels, so the information needed to come through, no matter what. I went on with the call and shut off the thoughts involving self doubt and self judgement. It ended up being a beautiful call with incredible messages coming through. 

Peace and balance in the outer world come from peace and balance in the inner world. The Angels really drove that message home to me by requiring exactly that to get me through this call. They were calling me to live my medicine. Without being able to balance, center, and re-focus, I would not have been able to hear the messages that they were giving me and share them.

The Learning
Sometimes, it takes a bit of an extreme situation to enable you to learn things that you might not have known otherwise. Had this not happened, I might never have realized:

1. How many people care. Even though we are surrounded by people, we don't always realize this. I cannot tell you how many emails, calls, texts, and messages I had when I finished the call. All from lovely people who were checking on me. Remember...in their world, I just didn't show up. They had no idea I was leading the call on another conference line! 

2. How responsible people know I am. If I say something is starting on this date at one, people know I will be there waiting for them at exactly that time. This is good to know, because it wasn't always this way.

3. How much Peace and Unity are actually desired in this world. If you listen to the mainstream media, you would most likely think the exact opposite. When the angels give us an opportunity to center and re-balance out inner world, so many of us show up. Remember, it only takes 1/2 of 1% of the population to shift our consciousness and hold it to create a huge shift in the consciousness of the entire world. 

4. No matter what, we are human first. As humans, we naturally thrive in community—and with the help of others. We can't manage everything on our own, and just being in community with like-minded people helps us to come out feeling better, stronger, and more supported. 
(And, on a personal note: Having an assistant to manage details is a lovely place to start.)

5. Every moment is a new opportunity to practice ahimsa, or non-violence in thought, word, and action. When things go wrong, it is very easy to jump into self-criticism, which usually involves some aspect of violent language. "You are such an __(insert expletive of choice here)__." Knowing that absolutely everything happens for a reason, and the silver lining will be shown to you afterwards is a great place to start to shift your energy from judgement to compassion. 
(If this seems difficult for you, know that I FULLY trust it and have been shown that this is the case over and over again in my life.)

What I want you to know is that I SEE YOU. I have heard your desire to make the world a better place, and I am fully committed to bringing you any information that I can to enable you to do just that. I am so grateful for you, and your willingness to stand up in strength and service on behalf of the world as it is now, and all future generations. 

For that reason, I am re-doing this call on Thursday so these messages to be brought to you LIVE. The angels will also be answering your questions, so bring them if you have them. If you are working at the time, sign up anyway—you can always just listen in if you have the chance.

Want to make the world a better place? Here are 5 things you probably forget to do.

As people who feel called to serve the world in a very deep way, we often burn the candle at both ends—alternating between states of superhuman productivity and hiding under a blanket with the blinds drawn to re-charge our batteries. This is often because our Work does not feel like work. We feel accomplished and balanced when we are working toward a goal that makes the world better in some way.

The fact is, that our Work IS work. It requires our focus, and very often a lot of energy movement. We are often working for what we LOVE on top of, or in addition to, a job that we already work full-time. This means we are sometimes already tired, but that we are so devoted and dedicated, that we forget about ourselves and our physical bodies in the process.

The key here is to see ourselves as pitchers full of water. We pour our water into all of the glasses around us—people, work, situations. When we run out of water, we are depleted and we have absolutely nothing to give to others. The goal is to always have water (energy) in your pitcher. Whether your Work is parenting, social justice, channeling, healing, or anything else, the principle is the same.

Here are 5 things to remember to that can help you to remain balanced and give you more energy to accomplish your Work:

1. Eat. Sometimes, when deep in the throes of working on something we are passionate about, we forget to eat. Sometimes, we just feel we "don't have time to eat." Other times, we forget that we are as important as the people and causes we are nurturing and don't make the time to be sure that we have the proper foods prepared and available to us. We get to the point of "I NEED TO EAT NOW" and grab whatever is fast and/or on-hand—EVEN if we are allergic to it!

You will see, maybe in the mirror, that a lot of people out there who you perceive as having a huge life mission either hold extra weight, are out of shape, or look emaciated and drained. Many even alternate between these stages. (Aside: food is not the only reason for this. There are energetic boundaries to be addressed at a later time that come into play here, as well.)

Taking the time to feed ourselves properly does a few things:

• It changes subtle lack-mentality that sabotages us. Saying that we don't have enough time or that there are not enough hours in a day for what we need to accomplish keeps us living in the illusion of lack.

• By fueling ourselves with the proper foods—as fresh and seasonal as possible—we create the most potential energy for our bodies to function and remain healthy.


2. Sleep. Many times, we ignore the signs that our bodies are tired and need to rest. (This is especially common in those of us who have spent a lot of time working in an office environment.) Forcing ourselves to continue working when our bodies say otherwise is actually a form of violence against the self. At the very least, it makes us less productive and we can easily spend an hour or two on something that should only have taken 10 minutes.

Getting a full night's sleep strengthens out immune system, allows the nervous system to re-set itself properly, and helps mood. Plus, resting when we need to rest allows us to come back to our Work with sharper focus and be much more productive.

3. Breathe. This is normally the first thing to go out the window when we are being challenged or are working on something that requires our undivided attention and focus. Simply put, our bodies need oxygen to function—each cell, organ, and neuron. When we are constantly breathing in a shallow way, we are depriving ourselves of a basic nutrient that we need to function properly. Just taking pause and breathing a couple of deep breaths is enough to calm the nervous system and re-focus the mind.

What I've learned is that if I am not breathing properly, I am exerting more of my own will and energy, instead of allowing the Guidance to flow to and through me.

4. Move. Many of us are dawn to spiritual practices (like kundalini yoga and meditation) over other kinds of practices and would rather invest time there. This is great, and these things may be necessary to your growth and development, but they often involve long periods of sitting or being still. The truth is, we are all in a physical body, and one of the things the physical body needs to function properly is movement. For this reason, it is important to balance these periods of sitting with periods of movement—whatever that looks like for you.

Moving the physical body is also a quick way to get energy moving. If you feel resistance to moving, take it to meditation and ask yourself, "Where is it that I am resisting change in my life?" and you will very likely unblock yourself!

5. Ground. It seems that we highly sensitive people spend a LOT of time disconnected from our bodies.

There are many reasons why we become ungrounded, but the hard part is making sure that we take the time to ground again. We can only really be strongly rooted in what we are here to do if we have both feet firmly on mother earth. This grounded energy is what needs to be harnessed for manifestation and it is the missing ingredient for so many of us.

As we feel called to go out and help the world, it is easy for us to lose sight of ourselves and what we need in and from it. As highly spiritual people, we are used to going "upward" for guidance and not grounding downward into the earth, but this is what is necessary in order to manifest our big plans and dreams in this reality. As we practice groundedness, we will naturally become more in-tune with our bodies and hear what they are asking for. Taking good care ourselves in the physical reality ensures that we will have the strength and energy to go forth and carry out the Work we know we are called to do, as well as all of the other things that require our time and attention.
