After last weeks disaster and the complete annihilation of my blog I could have easily thrown my hands in the air and said “I surrender” and turned the situation into a bad situation instead of just allowing what happened to be a lesson.
This week was again another test of faith. There was a lot of talk about the Mercury Retrograde and admittedly not knowing too much about it but felt I had been affected by it anyway. A series of ‘not so enjoyable’ events occurred to really make me look inside myself. At first I was asking “Why am I attracting all this?” Why is this happening to me when I am focused on being kind, forgiving, patient and loving?
Some people have the belief that EVERYTHING is the mirror. Now I was thinking they mean a mirror of our consciousness which I couldn’t understand because nowhere inside of me could I see a reflection of ‘bad behaviour’ that I was witnessing.
But the mirror can actually be the lesson and how we react instead. Most of us are conditioned to just walk away from someone else’s behaviour and not accept at all. Imagine if you made a mistake though would you want your closest people to you to accept and love you for your mistakes? Of course!
So the mirror can be shown to you in opposite ways sometimes to what you think. It’s actually quite eye-opening when you truly go within and ‘discover’.
Being Present in Every Way
Over the weekend I had the opportunity to attend a Folk Festival for 3 days. It was incredible!. Needless to say I did not complete any of the exercises from the Master Key Experience. It was on my mind but I also allowed myself to be in the present. If I focused on what I ‘should’ be doing then I never would have truly been in the moment and been able to enjoy what I did.
It was such a beautiful expression of people there. All authentic and there for one reason to enjoy the music and live in the moment. There were even a couple of kids who were hanging out on this man-made bridge to get over the mud pits (from the heavy rain) who were giving out free hugs!
It is amazing what starts showing up around you when you start to see who you really are and realizing that we really are kind-hearted and loving people who unfortunately lost our way through life because of our own thinking.
