Yesterday I had my 4th flat tire in 1.5 years. This is not a record to be proud of. However, I’m very grateful that all 4 have been relatively convenient and painless. I shook my head after this last one and wondered: What is the lesson here? Why did this happen today? What came to mind was gratitude. Why? I was certainly not feeling grateful that morning.
You could say I “woke up on the wrong side of the bed.” I didn’t get up early, despite going to bed early, and my last dream was unpleasant. I dreamt I had just left a gathering and I was walking up and down a residential street looking for my parked car while talking on the phone with an individual (unknown woman) who was talking my ear off, basically getting free coaching advice. When I got off the phone with her, I was approached by another woman. She gathered from my conversation what I did, and I was excited that maybe the universe was presenting me with a potential client! I quickly realized I was wrong, as she began talking about her services and how they might benefit me. She began asking me awkward questions about suicide, and the last thing I remember was being alone again, still walking up and down the streets looking for my car.
This dream has something to do with grounding (looking for my car) and also what has gotten my conscious mind’s attention in the last few days. Perhaps because of the full moon or the upcoming mercury retrograde — or just because I’m human and have an ego and am still sometimes influenced by my environment — I felt my vibration begin to slip. Fear and a “lack” mentality began creeping in and wreaking havoc on my system. I began to get frustrated with the Law of Prosperity. My perspective became dark. I began to lose hope.
In It’s a Wonderful Life — one of my all-time favorite movies — George, the main character nearly loses all hope. He is actually standing on a bridge, contemplating ending his life, when he receives the gift of a new perspective:the chance to see life as if he’d never lived.
That’s one way to look at today: a chance to look at what my life might look like if I really were in lack. What if I didn’t have a car? What if I didn’t have means of an income? What if I were stranded away from home? Almost every day I give thanks for my car, but now even more so! Now I am grateful for my tires and for every working part!
Ironically (or maybe not?) the lesson in my Quantum Leap class tonight was also about a mindset of gratitude. The universe is speaking. So, I guess I’ll listen!
Here is my list of things I’m grateful for today? (What’s yours?)
- My car — every single part!
- My health, from my toes, to my flat feet to my skin and other organs, to my blood cells, to all of my bodies, inside and out!
