Going With the Flow ~ Mindful Writing Challenge #25

Yesterday morning I planned an early start to cleaning and clearing clutter. Until a phone call came in from a friend who called me intuitively just as I had been thinking of her and conversing with her in my head as I am want to do. Followed by an email from a new friend who touches my heart, and so I sat down and wrote back to her while I had a cup of tea. Afterward, I felt a pull to connect and call another friend who was experiencing grief and heartache. I left a message for her. Next was a call to another friend to see how she was faring through some recent trauma and after-the-flu news. By the time I was finished with this last call, it was lunch time and after feeding and walking the dog, I ate. At last, I squeezed in vacuuming and cleaning one bathroom before I got out to do an errand and later in the afternoon meet another friend for coffee and quiche. Our conversation flowed for over two hours into darkening dusk and light snow. By that time, I treated myself to take-out vegan Asian food and finished the evening reading. A day committed to sweet conversation and connecting with creative and sensitive women committed to giving life all their best. I’m so glad I gave into the urge to call and connect. Actually, these conversations went along much further to clearing the clutter than moving around boxes of stuff that will patiently wait for a more convenient time.

    1. Thank you Christine. I always feel better when I follow my intuition. If only I can remember that it’s all good even the low or uneven feelings. I get confused sometimes – in trying too hard to be balanced – I get off-kilter. You should hear my conversations with my Angels, Guides, God and whomever will listen! LOL

      1. Me too on following intuition and trying too hard, forgetting to just let life unfold… And you should read my journal! That’s where I converse with the Universe πŸ™‚ lol

        1. Christine, I journal too with the Universe and everyone else I might add. Just wrote to Pain asking for clarification. Besides what I journalled, an email came through this morning from someone new saying that she ‘liked’ my post as we are want to do. I read one of her posts and it was all about pain – physical, mental, crippling, debilitating, suicidal and how she now views it as a salvation of sorts. She is helping other people like herself because of her empathy and direct experience! This is exactly what I got in my journalling about pain only a few hours before. Are you getting these kind of synchronistic hits? This one came hard and fast. Thank Spirit for our writing and sharing. Many of my conversations are humorous as well. The more humor – the more real πŸ™‚ Andrea

          1. Yes, suffering/pain can be a way to “awaken” to the Truth behind the suffering, if you know what I mean… It always has a “message” – like all of our feelings and experiences. I am learning to listen more deeply and to ask the “pain” or whatever feeling, what it wants, etc. I do get “synchronistic hits.” I will have a realization in meditation and then I will read something, or get an email, that confirms the insight – goosebumps πŸ™‚ We also just got a “synchronistic hit” with a visit from a Raccoon (which I posted about). Animals are such wonderful messengers for what we need to see. Spirit speaks in so many ways, as you know, and all we need do is listen. I’m sure you have experienced that too – with animals living where you are…

  1. Christine, Yes I do too, and yet my rational mind gives me a hard time. So much doubt, however I am opening up now to all the signs and symbols. It’s like learning a new language. Loved your post on the racoon. I guess I’ve gotten thrown by the sheer simplicity of it. So subtle the expression sometimes that I take it all for granted. Time to pay very close attention. Thanks for the reminder about the animals. They are the sweetest of all. Andrea
