I woke up at 4:30 this morning, turned over and looked out the window. All I could see was white. A Valentine’s Day snow storm…I cannot ever remember one of these before. When something new happens, even something as apparently unrelated to my inner life as a snowstorm on Valentine’s Day, I try to notice and appreciate it. I like to ask myself these questions (when I feel my mind getting ready to jump on all the negatives of a situation), “What exciting thing is in store for me today!?” or “Since this snowstorm is obviously for me (not against me, not something that I should fight, or judge or complain about), what would you (my higher self) have me do?” These questions open up my energy and help me to be receptive to the larger plan and purpose that, in the moment, I cannot imagine.
My plans for the day are off, and I have a window of time that I’d like to open up to anyone who might be interested. From 11:00 until 4pm today, I’m offering 20 minute sessions for $20. If this interests you, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up a time to talk.
“Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as a sorrow or as joy. It will open a new place in our hearts.” Henri Nouwen
