Today I woke up with no fixed plans, how Divine! I have felt an incredible shift occuring in my Inner Heart space over the past few weeks and have consciously surrendered my control of life. This incredible big energy of JOY has arrived. It has felt overwhelming some days. I have really wanted to be free of my ‘controller’ energy for a VERY long time now. You know, the one that thinks it knows what’s best for me and is especially arrogant in thinking it knows what is best for others! Ha ha! I go through the necessary chores of tidying, showering, washing my clothes, making breakfast and cleaning up. I check my diary to make sure I don’t have any appointments. I have one thing I must go out to do, and that is pick up something for my granddaughter – a gifted winter jacket. Bless the generous Souls who give with no expectations of any reward and from their Hearts. I decide that I will also go to the library which is near my pick up place and return some books. That was all that was planned. It came into my mind that it would be nice to have a ‘pamper’ day. Something just for me. Next thought pops in is that one of the things I really miss is the ability to travel, have amazing adventures and encounters. The thought that followed that, was the realisation that I could be a tourist and have an adventure in my very own amazing city. I go through some ideas and then decide that I would drive along the Estuary Road. As I approach a turn off to the marina I hear a direction in my mind – turn here. I obey. I then end up at the Bouvard Marina/Dawesville Cut. It is an absolutely beautiful winter’s day with clear blue skies and no wind. The waters are still and clear. I park the car and go for a very long walk chatting to the fisherman along the way. On my way back to the car I decide I would like to have some tea and something to eat. I walk up to the restaurant/café door. It almost felt like an invisible wall hit me and I heard my Inner Heart voice say: ‘No, not here, drive to the Leprechaun café.’ I surrender to this guidance.
I get into my car and enjoy a drive along the Estuary Road taking in the beautiful scenery of the still inland waters. I arrive at the Leprechaun cafe and as I am walking towards the door to go in and order, I saw a woman sitting alone at an outside table. I felt very strongly that I knew her. Before I could even think about it, I blurted out to her: “I know you don’t I?” She responds by saying she doesn’t think so, but says that people say this to her all the time. I stop to tell her what I think this recognition is. I say: “The Heart Remembers Itself.” A kind of inner resonance when you share the same level of Heart Openness/Love/Energy. It is a connection that goes beyond appearances or intellectual understanding. As we are chatting her friend arrives and I am introduced to Vicki by Carmen. We are having a wonderful conversation and I feel so warmly welcomed into their Hearts. I found myself boldly asking: “Can I join you?” They joyfully respond with a happy “Yes of course”. What transpires between us after that is so beautiful, Divine and miraculous. These two women share deeply about their lives and loves and I about mine. It was if we had been friends for a lifetime. There was complete communion of our Hearts. We talk about our spiritual paths and our trust in God/Love. We laugh a lot as we share stories about our lives! I cheer several times for the victories of Vicki!
My words cannot convey the gratitude I feel for all that transpired today. I left Carmen and Vicki to continue their friendship meeting and both ladies were insistent that we meet again in friendship. Vicki suggested we all go to her home and she would play her baby grand piano for us. Yesssssssssssss said my Heart. Yes, yes yes! I feel like the richest little girl in town. What greater richness can one have than friendships where you are embraced with a wide open Heart and can be fully and joyfully accepted for yourself as you are.
I am so grateful that today I chose to follow the guidance of my Inner Wise Heart Self and listen to the directive of where to go and let go of my ‘controller’ Self! Look at the Miracles! I feel like a child who has just come home after a visit to the Lolly Shop!
