I’ve been away for a few days and haven’t had the time to write. I was in Toronto, Canada attending a class facilitated by Dr. Dain Heer of Access Consciousness®. If you’re considering attending one of his classes you can prepare for days of stand-up comedy performed solely by Dr. Dain and the questions from the audience. Also prepare for heaps and heaps of change. This particular class was called The Symphony of Possibilities (SOP). We learned to use the SOP energy to assist others desiring to make change in their life. Not small change, but big, permanent change. That’s what I love about Access Consciousness®, the change you make is permanent. This SOP showed me that I have healing capacities that I have never tapped into. Becoming aware of these filled me with such excitement for the gift that I can be to myself and others.
At the time I found Access Consciousness®, I was in a place in my life where I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I’ve said before that I am a reinvention expert, as a result of changing careers about every 13 years. When those changes occurred, they were usually as a result of my choice. Well, this one was not one of those times. I had been laid off from a position I loved. I was devastated. Do you get the picture? There were days after this termination that were filled with anger, despair, fear, self loathing, depression and aloneness. During this time I was able to reflect and I came to the realization that I hadn’t presented myself with a full life when I was working. I was in an office all day communicating with clients and possible clients, reading and editing manuscripts and book proposals. Most evenings and weekends were again spent reviewing manuscripts and proposals that had a short deadline. Here I was, a recent widow, living in San Diego, the most beautiful city on earth, and I spent my weekends and nights looking at paper. What was I thinking?
I feel very silly admitting all of this, but it’s exactly what I did to myself. I was working in a business where I thought I might be asked to take over when the owner retired. Of course I never mentioned that this was my dream, but it was my dream. Of course during this time I had lots of signs to show me that maybe I had made a decision that wasn’t in my best interest. I ignored the prompts from the universe because I loved what I was doing. I had come to a conclusion about my life and I was sticking to it. Getting laid off was the only way the universe could get my attention.
Now I am learning to live in the question and as a result I have brought so much ease to my life. I ask a question and the universe will respond to it. I ask a question and feel the energy after asking the question and if it feels light, then I know that is the way to go, and if it feels heavy, I choose again. It sounds so easy. It is easy, as long as I don’t come to a conclusion or make a decision about what I am choosing. I’ve found in many areas of my life that working with the energy of a situation is incredibly freeing, and at the same time, it is something that can become a way of being. Some of the questions I ask myself everyday are: What grand and glorious adventures can I experience today? What else is possible in this situation that I haven’t considered or imagined? How does it get any better than this? Universe, what would it take to have an off-the-charts amazing day? Do any of these questions resonate with you? Please feel free to use them. What are the possibilities you’d try these and they’d help you to have more ease in your day?
