Did you ever notice…

How you get exactly what you need when you need it? It may not be what you think you want, but if you pay attention you’ll recognize the gift anyway…

Today was a long day. I was up at 5 and headed out the door before 7 to open the church for meditation. It seemed right to make space for any who wanted to be present to join in the energies of 11-11-11 and it was especially important because the day of meditation set the tone and the energy in our chapel for this evening’s ordination of 4 new ministers. As the time for ordination approached I found myself torn between the preparations in the social hall and remaining in the chapel for meditation. My heart cried out “I want to stay here with you” and I wondered why everyone didn’t want to be in that space while my mind and history demanded I support those making preparations downstairs. Spirit’s reply was “hush child, be still.” I guess in a way I was making preparations too, just not physical ones. One thing I know for sure was that after 8 hours of meditation I was quite receptive to all of the energies around me, including the ones that were none of my business and my spiritual high and extreme contentment were turning into an emotional rollercoaster. As our group gathered for prayer in the office just before the service began the harpist in our beautiful light filled chapel started to play my favorite hymn and everything came back into focus. Thank you spirit for the gift….and thank you to the harpist for listening…
