My mother is coming to visit in two days. I am very excited. She is making a long journey to be with me and experience what I love about my new home in New Mexico.
An issue came up recently that might affect our visit. I approached it with the usual endless research and slew of telephone calls to find out how to make both of us comfortable. I spent two days on the phone from one source to another. I wanted to control the outcome, but I couldn’t find a satisfying solution. Then I decided that I would not solve it in my head. I have all the information that is knowable at this time. How could I access my higher self and let the solution flow? How could I think thoughts that attract peace and harmony and allow the best course to present itself?
I stepped back and let my heart take over. I smudged (Native American ceremony of using the smoke from sage and other sacred grasses to clear the energy in a space) every room of my house. I sang “All You Need Is Love” as I danced from room to room. I smudged my mother’s bedroom and welcomed her. With a warm heart I wished her rest and comfort and rejuvenation in this room. I thought of all the fun things we would do together. I loved her and felt so much appreciation to have her with me. Then I sat down to a candlelight dinner of steamed vegetables, rice and a glass of wine. We both need to be nourished, and I started with me.
There comes a time when your intellect cannot solve a problem. Sometimes you just have to be in the most open and loving energy and let what you set in motion take its course.
