Random Events

Tpropelledoday I asked for a message and I saw a young girl twirling a toy propeller in the air.  In the meditation the wind carried it random places and she watched as though she had no control over where it went.  The message was that God moves through and around all things and He is in control of what happens.

Life is a series of events that can sometimes appear quite random.  We may be trying to steer things in a certain direction only to have them change course.  This can even happen in relationships in which we thought we knew the path they were taking only to be surprised when the direction of those relationships changes.  Life would not appear so random if we could anticipate all things before they happen and understand the meaning behind why.   Even for  intuitive people, we are not supposed to see “all” things because that would interrupt God’s plan.  For those that we do, it does not exempt any of us from feeling our human emotions and disappointments.

Recently, I have been asking to be more aware.  When life gets busy, I find myself using my awareness more for others than myself.  In so doing, I left myself vulnerable and trusting in ways that I shouldn’t have.   Being very human, we all do that.  We want to love and give and then find that we have ignored things that need to be addressed.  When we look back, we can then see the events were not random.  We just weren’t paying attention.

The moral to the meditation is that we need to practice conscious awareness.  Though things may seem random, God is in control.  He is guiding the direction of all things, even when He lets us be in charge.  His presence may be subtle or it may be strong.  When we exercise our faith, we stay in the solution and we allow the universal flow to happen in our lives. We are given the awareness and guidance we need to be successful in all areas of our lives.   It is important to be a conscious observer, to ask for Him for guidance  and to allow things to flow with effortless ease.   © December 28, 2013 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Fear

Faith2Fear can cause many things like lack of sleep, shortness of breath, spinning thoughts and even difficulties with others. Often that part of us that is afraid is triggered by beliefs we established in Childhood or from a traumatic event from the past. In the here and now, ask yourself,  “When is the first time I felt this?” and “What is the worst that is going to happen today?” and most importantly, “Do I believe God is powerful enough to carry me through this and protect me from the thing I am afraid of?”  When the past is affecting you today, ask God to heal that old part of you. Whatever is before you today that is causing concern, will likely be a distant memory in the near future as you move on to a new worry.  Rather than giving your power away to fear, allow prayer and faith to make you stronger.        © August 2013 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Feeding Your Inner Light

California Poppies and GazaniasLiving a spiritual life will cause you to grow and can result in many changes. The more spiritual we become, the more we tend to let go of things that are not in line with our desire for love and peace. Things that we might have tolerated before, will be less tolerable in the here and now.  We may find ourselves walking away from situations, things or people in ways we wouldn’t have in the past.  We may find that as our own light gets brighter, we are less attracted to things and people we used to align with.  Proper care of our inner light means we should not engage in situations that deter us from being the best we can be.  We should pursue our goals with integrity and consideration for others.  Spiritually and karmically, we will be rewarded for having the right intentions and taking correct action.  As we grow and take responsibility for the care and feeding of our inner light, we think less of selfish things and align ourselves more with loving thoughts and actions.  Always remember, inviting God to participate in your daily plans and activities can make living spiritually easy and effortless.  You will naturally gravitate to what makes you healthy and happy.  © August 2013 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Adaptability

This morning in meditation I was shown insects having the instinctive ability to adapt to nature by restructuring their living situations.  In the image, the adaptations seemed easy and effortless.  They recognize the situation or changes needed and begin restructuring beetheir homes and environment to accommodate mother nature. In the same way,  it is necessary us to have the ability to adapt.  The ability to adapt affects our ability to survive and it affects our emotional sense of well-being.

Change is a constant in life.  The belief that we are actually in control is simply not always the reality we would like it to be.  The question we have to ask ourselves is, “how adaptable am I?”  Those that can adapt well to change will have a greater sense of peace and serenity.  They will see change and have the ability to work with it.  They recognize what is needed and move on.  Sometimes slowly and sometimes quickly.

Resisting change can be frustrating, exhausting and painful.  We can become comfortable with the current status of things and fight against any shift in our circumstance.  Fighting the flow of things can wear us out emotionally and take away from the energy needed to adjust to the change.  Why do we resist?   We are often fearful of what the change will bring or fearful we will lose something important to us.  When fear is the issue,  faith can assist us and help us to be more adaptable.  It can help us see the benefits and growth involved with the changes we need to make.  Faith can also help us learn to cope in new ways where we once may have used controlling behaviors to create a sense of safety.  When faced with change, take time to assess the situation and then turn it over to God.  Allow yourself to release your fears by recognizing you have the instinctive ability to adapt within you and you can apply it to each and every situation you encounter.

A Time and a Season

This morning I heard that “there is a time and a season to everything”.  I was shown birdconnections to people and the recognition that some people come into our lives to stay and some come just for a season.  On a spiritual level, we are meant to connect with and learn from certain people.  Those encounters can teach us a life time of lessons or the connection can be meant to only last for a small amount of time.  Once we complete our lesson together, we may be destined to move on in separate directions.  Sometimes it can be hard to let go of a connection because we develop emotional attachments to people; however, hanging on to something that isn’t meant to be can cause us more pain in the long run.

How do we know when to move on?  Sometimes we have to pray for clarity.  At others we have to trust and let go.  If a relationship is meant to be in our lives, we should not have to grasp at it emotionally  to maintain the connection.   No relationship goes smoothly at all times; however, it is always important that the relationship be built on mutual respect and consideration.

When a relationship leaves your life, or changes into a different one, learn to release it with love.  If your efforts to keep it together are not reciprocated, it may be your sign to let it go.  Acknowledge the lessons you learned from it and ask yourself if there is anything you would do differently?  Do you owe an amends?  Did you engage in the relationship knowing it wasn’t a healthy choice?  Once you do that,  release it with love.  If it is meant to be, it will come back to you.  If it doesn’t, it likely is not meant to be.

Gaining Perspective

perspective

In meditation I saw some swirling energy.  The energy cleared away and I saw a woman sitting on a mountain top in a grassy area reading some scrolls.  The message is that “we can sometimes get confused by the situations around us.  At times it is necessary to seek a higher perspective to gain the knowledge we need to go forward.”  It can be important to temporarily remove yourself from situations that overwhelm you emotionally to gain a new perspective.  Though we often want to act, the most prudent thing to do at times is to sit patiently for the wisdom to act in the most appropriate manner.  If you find yourself feeling off balance by a situation, pull away and take time for prayer and reflection.   The intuition you need to act appropriately will come when you are able to quiet your mind and listen.
