Yesterday I wrote about how anger can be the fuel for our work and how we might be afraid of having enough energy to fulfil everything we want.
In that chapter about anger, which I mentioned yesterday, Julia Cameron writes about synchronicity or serendipity too: ” God knows that the sky’s the limit. Anyone honest will tell you that possibility is far more frightening than impossibility, that freedom is far more terrifying than any prison. If we do, in fact, have a to deal with a force beyond ourselves that involves itself in our lives, then we may have to move into action on those previously impossible dreams….”
If I look back over my life I have often experienced the fact that when I opened myself up to a wish, a dream, a knowledge things suddenly move fast and the right people, jobs, situations come to hand and I just have to grab them and go with the flow.
One example? Two years ago we were quite unhappy where we lived and where we worked. We were pondering what to do but then I just let it go and thought: Universe it’s up to you!
Two things happened. My husband had a lot of trouble in the department he worked in. He had filed a complaint and the store manager who was appointed to deal with it offered him a job in another store.
My husband’s ex-partner decided to move to an area which was closer to the store my husband works now. As his children are very important to us we directly decided to move too and within a week we had seen a house that would fit, had spoken to the landlord and landlady who accepted us. Within four weeks, we had moved, and both of us had a new job.
Even though, the whole experience was quite stressful all that happened were blessings in disguise as we are in a much better place now than we were then. Of course, things change and nothing is perfect yet but I open myself more and more to the idea that the Universe does, in fact, answer prayers and much more effective than any of our plans can be.
Letting go of control and our limiting thoughts is a scary experience because it goes against everything we have been taught. But the truth is it works much better than any of our plans!
