Ugh. I’m NEVER sick.
As the statement comes out, the word wizard in me says “I mean, I’m ALWAYS healthy.”
Well, almost always.
I usually find myself highly attached to the tissue box approximately once every 2 years. What I’ve learned is that the box comes a callin’ when it is time for me to take some serious, often hard, action toward creating the life I desire.
Maybe you read about my non-conforming dislike of resolutions and found that this year I’m focusing on being ‘intentional’. I’ve also shared how I’m very specific and pay close attention to my environments (everything that surrounds me – people, places, things) and that if it doesn’t serve, I let it go to make room for something new. Taking these two things into consideration, I KNOW I have a couple hard (uh-hem…challenging) decisions to make. In fact, in my head, I’ve already made them. I just need to voice them and share the news with the people that my decision may affect.
Enter sore throat turn stuffy head turn sinus infection turn cold. (think dry, cracked and painful nose)
What does a ‘cold’ have to do with self empowerment lessons?
The Universe likes quick action. I made those decisions that I KNOW will serve me best and I haven’t actually taken action yet. In comes the Universe to basically pull a “Dr. Phil” on me and tell it like it is.
Universe speaking to me >>> “Jen, if you don’t take care of exactly what you know you need to take care of, I’m going to force you to take care of things and slow you down until you DO take care of them.”
You see, I believe that we receive messages first in a whisper, then a little louder and then even louder. If we don’t listen the first couple of times, larger measures are taken in order for us to hear AND listen to the message.
We ALL receive these messages – all the time. Generally, I pay close to attention to the messages but clearly, sometimes I don’t. I can assure you, I’m listening and am taking action NOW!
What message is in your life that is attempting to get your attention? It may be time to slow down before you get knocked down.
I’d love to hear your stories about how the Universe has spoken to you. Please share.
