I had temporarily slipped out of my status as a recovering engineer and started to organize myself with outlines of what I wanted to cover in this blog, and when, but was gently nudged back into recovery. So, this blog is going to be random and will take me, and you, where the winds blow. I have no doubt that all the stuff I would like to share will end up here, I just don’t know when and in what order.
In September of 2005 I attended a weeklong workshop called Guidelines at The Monroe Institute (TMI) which is designed to introduce you to, and deepen your connection to, your own internal guidance (all those loving spirits working behind the scenes). One exercise toward the end of the week, was for each of us to find a quiet spot somewhere and write a letter either from or to our guides. We each placed them in a self-addressed envelope and were told that sometime in the near future, the wonderful people at TMI would mail the letters to us. When I received the letter in the mail a few weeks later, it was like I was reading the words for the first time. I vaguely remembered the words, but it was truly as if I had just provided a hand to hold the pen.
By now you have probably slipped back into physical life and may have even forgotten about our writing this letter. There are several things we need to remind you of although you know them all, you may temporarily forget.
There is no timetable, no schedule with which you must conform, except as created by you. Everything will happen at the perfect time, in synchronicity with your rhythms and needs, no matter when that time is.
Remember always to be kind to yourself and to others. You are connected to all other life, and when you are kind to yourself, you are kind to others at the same time, and visa versa.
Be patient with yourself and others. Do not get frustrated when things do not happen when and how you expect them to. Each step, each experience, is of your own making and is a direct response to your wishes. What may appear to be a non-sense answer to a question is actually in your viewing of it – your perception. The answer is there.
You should practice at opening to subtleness as many of the answers will come to you as whispers. Much of the richness in life is in the subtleness, in the space between the letters and the lines, the pauses between the words and sentences, between the tick and the tock.
Guidance is always there, even if you cannot directly perceive it at times, you do hear it, and you do use it. Much of it is taken for granted and gets lost in your day-to-day life, though you act on it automatically.
Our greatest joy, our greatest purpose, is in giving you exactly what you ask for, when you ask for it.
Be kind, be gentle, be love.
With all our love,
The Doorbells? Perhaps I should explain. I had at one time asked for a name or symbol to associate with my guides and what I received was the image of a doorbell, probably very similar to the one at your front door. From that point forward, whenever I would like a little guidance, I just close my eyes, take a deep breath, exhale and press the doorbell.
