So over the holiday I had some Crazy Making Days. The kind of days that make you want to pull your hair out and scream! Days filled with mix ups, meltdowns and misplaced items!
I’ll spare you all of the gory details and just share one so that you can get the sense of the kind of energy that I had going on.
It all started wonderfully with the prospect of spending the day with a good friend here in NYC. We decided to go to the Cloisters Museum, a beautiful museum and grounds. When we arrived, however... it was closed. Trying to turn a disappointment into a pleasant afternoon we headed out to look for a cozy coffee shop for a Chai Tea. We started to walk and quickly figured out the area may not be the best area for two ladies to take a stroll. Let’s put it this way, not a place to visit unless you live there. So instead of a lovely visit to the museum we simply had a 30 block Uber ride, two ways culminating in a visit to the Starbucks back in my neighborhood…
I hoped the day would get brighter as I headed home to pack for a relaxing trip upstate for a week to chill out from “city energy” which I do every few weeks, to maintain my sanity! I started filling my suitcase with the usual items without putting in much thought since I make this trip quite often and have my country clothes there.
As I made my final check of the contents in my handbag, I noticed, my makeup bag, my hair brush, my notebook for brilliant ideas, my glasses and my book “Whatever the F*CK It Takes" (in case I run into someone in desperate need of it on the spot!), but my wallet was missing! I looked everywhere for it, and I mean EVERYWHERE!!!
Thus began the scramble to locate it. When that didn’t happen immediately, the panic set in! I looked all over the house first, then began to back track my steps, recalling that the last place I remember having the wallet was at the Starbucks. I called and called hoping they would report having it waiting for me, but they didn’t answer. So, I got back in an Uber to track it down. I arrived at Starbucks eager to retrieve my much needed wallet only to discover that, it’s not there! After a heartsick ride back home I arrived at my apartment with this Crazy Making Energy of frustration and fear, anxiety and feeling like I had just run a marathon and came in last place.
My home is my sanctuary, my safe place where it’s important to me to have peaceful energy. I was immediately aware that what I was feeling was anything but peaceful! I decided to ask myself what would I tell a client facing this predicament?
Until this point I was allowing the fear choose me, forgetting that I always have the ability to choose my reality! I needed to change my point of view!
I decided to choose FOR ME and not against me!
That’s it! I’m not doing this anymore! NO MORE CRAZY &*$#! I choose peace!
I began to use my Access Consciousness tools. I started to ask the questions, “What’s right about this -- I’m not getting”, “What else is possible”, “How can this turn out better than I can imagine” and so on. This calmed my energy right away and cleared my head so I had the ability to ask the next question, “What can I do right now to change this?”
