Listen to the still small voice that says do this, but don’t do that…

I went to Dorset from Belfast for a Reiki course a couple years back. And the Reiki master sent me the details and information about booking a room in a guest house. I did not even look at it. I decided to take my car, and sleep in my car to save money. But I had the nagging sensation that I should book the room, but I ignored it. I kept thinking “its not that I don’t have the money, Its not that I am being cheap, its just that I want to use my car!”
Well did I?
I slept in the car for two nights, bought a 10£ sleeping bag some supermarket food and felt content that I had saved money.
Well had I?
A month later the bill came, I had been charged parking fees for staying over the two hour limit at a stop pit. A day later another charge came for driving 32 miles per hour, 2 miles per hour above the speed limit. Before that day I never even knew there was a 30 miles per hour was a speed limit.
I did not calculate it, but I knew that I had paid the cost of two nights and two meals in a guest house.
 
Again I went to London, this time I rented a car. I heard when my hostess said I may need to pay the congestion fee. I heard it but I tried no to listen. I did not want to pay it. I also saw the signs on the road but I tried to erase it from my mind.
I kept my fingers crossed when I brought back the car and I said nothing about the thought that I may have scratched it just a bit. I went home thinking I have been spared.
Well was I?
A month and a half later the bill comes for congestion fees 65£s I did not check it but I am sure congestion fees should be a few pence and reporting a scratch under the front bumper that may or may not have been my fault may have cost much less.
 
We are always blaming someone or something for our misfortune. If not our parent our children, if not our friends our haters, if not the blacks, the whites, if not the government, the man upstairs.
 
But there is no one to blame but ourselves. It is pointless to try to cheat yourself, cheat others or even the system. Time is the great equaliser. And always balances everything. It is because most of us are so asleep that it takes so long to feel the effects of our thoughts and actions. But as we waken; you hit the hammer down here and you feel the pain there almost immediately
 
Always listen to that still small voice that says do this but don’t do that. . Because if you do you have no one to blame but yourself.

Don’t Try to Run Away from your Self…

New Thought For Today
 
Don’t try to run away from yourself…
 
I met this photographer about two years ago and if search my mind, I can pinpoint the exact date and time. I heard his story and I felt an instant connection. I felt that he had come into my life to help me. I took the business cards he gave me. He gave me about five. I never forgot them because they were the only business cards I had seen in plastic and that you can see through. When I called him he said, you need a video for your book. Its going to cost you XYZ and you need to do ABC. I though about it and became petrified. I had to do all this, step put of my comfort zone, do something I never did before, get people I never met to do things for me. It was frightening. So I called him and said I change my mind, I would sort this out myself. I did not communicate with him for more than a year, but I always remember his name and his story.
When I finally stopped being afraid, and knew it was now or never I went back to him to get some professional photos done for my website. I went to pick them up and I hated them. And while I was busy convincing myself I was not afraid, I cancelled the photos and told him to delete them. I did not even care about the 62£s I had already paid. I would do this myself.
Then he sent me a text. It went like this:
 
“So you’re running away once again. You wanted to look like someone else and that’s what we did. You wanted us to make you look rich and pretty…”
 
And then I became petrified of being afraid. Of repeating the patterns that had kept me back all my life. So in desperation I called and rescheduled my shot. I said
 
“I do not want to look like anyone else, not even the celebrity photo I showed you. I just want to be me. I am beautiful and I am rich so you don’t have to make me look any other way”
 
You see if God, the creator wanted the Beyoncé experience he would go to Beyoncé. He came to you because he wanted your experience. Any type of Beyoncé you can be will be a fake, a copy an imitation. But you are the original the authentic and the new experience.
Most of us stop being ourselves, we stop being who are and who we can be and doing what we came to do because we are so afraid. Fear stops us in our tracks. But when we get out of fear we see the utter magnificence of who we really are and who we can be.
 
So after the photo shot we did the video I tried to run away from two years ago…
 
Don’t try to run away from yourself for it will chase you to hell and back. publication2
