A few weeks ago, I was having a difficult time trying to find a gift for someone close to me, and I was saying to Jack (with a little distress in my voice), “I just don’t have any idea what to buy ….!” Suddenly, I realized the error of my thinking, and started saying (out loud), “I know exactly what to get……My conscious mind is just not aware of this perfect gift at the moment. But I know!” And with that, I decided to take a bath. Less than 5 minutes later, gift ideas started pouring into my mind and I went on-line and bought every one.
The larger part of us (Divine Mind, Subconscious Mind, The All) always knows which direction to take. Nothing is too small to turn over to our Higher Selves, but if we keep saying, “I don’t know!”, then it’s as if we block that answer from coming through. When we start “claiming” Wisdom, we give it permission to pop into our lives to delight and surprise us.
“Cease trying to work everything out with you minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be revelation.” Eileen Caddy
