I keep a banner on my car dashboard “Things are always working out for me”. Earlier in my life I would have felt uncomfortable affirming that sentiment. Geez McGeez…that sure did not sound true in days past. It is certainly not what I heard growing up as a child. You Readers know I have been training myself how to reach beyond what is presenting in front of me and to begin dreaming a bigger dream. There’s a trick– I want to feel as good as I can as I go through my days conjuring some juicy condition or thing I want.
If my good mood depends on getting what I want, I am less likely to attract it.
Eloise works in a cooperative office space, renting one of the units in the suite. To her delight it has lots of empty walls for the beautiful art she creates, and her office mates enjoy the light and beauty that emanate from her work as they walk in the corridors.
With passing time tenants move out and others join the group. This year one of the new members bought furnishings for the entry– couch, chairs and decorative pillows.
One day Eloise entered the space to see new decor– looking straight ahead she peered at the new couch placed under one of her big paintings– accented with throw pillows that clashed badly with her art. What to do?
Immediately she realized that she wanted to relax with this situation. Breathing she did move the offending pillows to an adjoining chair– oops…soon the plump squares were back on the couch. e had some vibes of annoyance at first– In fact one of her dates picked up on it and in a gesture of gallant offered to abscond with the pillows–maybe under cloak of darkness ( wearing a hood and mask?? he did not mention this…). She smiled at the idea and then she nixed it. She got guidance to let them be…
Instead of acting she adjusted herself internally to the look of the entry. Was this scene worth feeling poorly about? You know her answer. ( Why would we want to let some minor blip put a buzz in all kinds of good things flowing to us?) She put her focus on other good things flowing in her life– so much going well– her flower garden, her lively chats with friends, her art, etc.
Soon the scene became less annoying. In a few months she planned to hang a new art show there anyway, and she knew some possible pieces would harmonize with the jarring items.
About three months later by which time she hardly thought about this at all she opened the door to the suite to gaze upon… decorative pillows that beautifully matched her painting. The clashing squares had been replaced without her saying a word about them!! Wow, Source handled that! YAY! Let’s push that button from Staples “Easy”.
