Good Morning!


Have you ever struggled with trying to understand why the Universe keeps giving you lemons when you think you are asking for peaches?


This past week, my daughter and I were rear-ended while waiting in the drop-off lane in front of her school. As I heard the unexpected crashing noise and felt our car being catapulted forward, it was impossible for me not to experience a sense of déją vu to the auto accident I was in ten years ago.


Yesterday, I found out that not only was the driver of the vehicle uninsured, had no license, and was not the owner the vehicle, but that she has the same last name as the drunk driver that hit me ten years ago! How amazing is that?


And, just like ten years ago, I know I have a choice to either focus on the negative or focus on the positive. I have chosen to focus on the positive, by finding things to appreciate (like the fact that Ania and I are not seriously hurt and that I have wonderful healers on my support team who are already helping us to heal).


From the moment I was being put in the ambulance, I started affirming that there will be a huge gift in this experience. I’ve learned by now that to ask to see this gift so soon is not realistic, but I can say that I have every intention of keeping my heart open to the possibility.


As I focus on my belief that good will come from this, I connect with that part of me that knows that I am right. And as I do my best to bask in appreciation, I can feel at peace. I know that at every turn, Spirit is here to guide me and that feels really good. I don’t believe in the concept of being “tested,” but I do believe that in challenging circumstances, we can discover our strength and powerful personal attributes that perhaps were once hidden from us and can now be revealed.


I trust that regardless of appearances, everything is unfolding perfectly, including the plethora of emotions that I’ve been feeling. I know that if I give a voice to rage, that underneath I will find peace; and, that by giving myself permission to feel fully without judgment, I will eventually find acceptance and understanding.


All of us have experienced challenges in our lives, whether physically, emotionally or spiritually. What we do with those challenges is up to us.


Think about what the challenges in your life have taught you. Can you see that the attributes that you are most proud of might have come from your greatest life’s challenges? How would it feel to say a prayer of thanks for those opportunities and the gifts they held? Without them, you would not have become the amazing being that you are today.


Wishing you a week of insight and appreciation,
