Thank goodness I'm a calm person. I've been known to take things in stride- in a relaxed and peaceful way. This came clearer to me on a recent outing.
On my way to a conference in upstate NY, I stopped by my favorite lunch spot to grab a bite before check-in. Creature of habit that I am, I always order the same thing. The quiche with the side salad of farm-fresh greens. Note the words: FARM FRESH.
The cheerful waitress set the plate in front of me. It all looked so delicious! I paused before I took the first bite to give thanks and blessings for the fresh food set before me.
I took the first bite of the greens and prepared to tuck into the first bite of the quiche...
And, there it was.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a large spider creature walk calmly out of my salad and on to the table next to my plate. Quickly I flashed my eye to the waitress and motioned to her. I pointed to my unexpected guest and showed her that it had moved from my table to the floor below.
In the moment my appetite quickly went away, the spider jumped to the floor. All in a flash; the waitress moved so quickly, lifted her comfortable shoe, and before I could stop her, the spider was no more. Bless you Grandmother Spider.
I sat for a few moments~ stunned about what had just occurred.
When the waitress came back to ask me what I would like to order, she said that they owners and other staff were so grateful that I remained so calm. If I hadn't been so calm, it might have been a different scene in the busy lunch cafe. I ordered a replacement meal (no salad this time); and they cheerfully told me that lunch was on the house.
I fully believe that the Universe speaks to us every minute of every day! It's up to us to listen and interpret. My interpretation was that it was going to be a transformative and auspicious weekend. It was.
Thank you, Grandmother Spider!

TOGETHER WE'LL MAKE IT THROUGH:
Days turned inside out
The inner world calls us
The outer world scares us
Nights are really quiet
Our thoughts betray us
Our peace allays us
There's only one thing to do
Things are changing and we're being asked (or dragged) along for the ride. The opening and awakening that is happening now is not to be taken lightly. It's all for a higher purpose (even though we might not know it).
This current challenge is uniting the world in so many ways- and let's face it; it's time! We've been divided for too long and this is a time where we must stand together.
Many people have been asking me for some tools and strategies to help them stay calm amid all the storm that is surrounding us....
Lately I've been speaking with people about how to manage stress or anxiety. Things seem to have been amped up in the Universe and it's been causing us to look deep within.
For myself, I find it necessary to take a few minutes in the morning to sit quietly~
