Welcome to my peace filled space. It is my honor to share energy with you here!
I raise my two children on a boat in a marina in So CA. In life, I model and teach “unfolding”. This is my personal experience of applying what I know to be true within, to external events I have absolutely no control over…
Thank you, dear friend and readers for your prayers and love; for the emails, voicemails and expressions my family received the entire day. As I write this, my little family and I are safely tucked away at a hotel inland..
This is my personal experience of:
Unfolding During a Tsunami Advisory Amidst a World Crisis
On my boat, I do not have television access, nor do I listen to the radio. Often a world event happens and I have no physical idea until I interact with someone from the “outside world”. At 11:30 pm, my phone started ringing. Incessantly. Through the night. Loved ones calling to let me know of the events in Japan, and news reports of how it may personally effect myself, my children, and our home (boat).
Access your faith. When roused from sleep with news of impending doom, it is easy to get swept away in the panic and hysteria. Especially when there is word that the potential for danger may greatly impact your life personally. Yes, my first thought was holy f! My immediate next thought was a quick prayer for the victims, for the world, for the entire day. The “unfolding” solution to fear is to pour on huge amounts of love. I believe God’s hand guides and the Universe provides..so before fear could set in, I centered within my beliefs. After praying for the world, I prayed for my self and my children and our boat..and asked for guidance to allow this to unfold in my life as it is meant to. Feeling: Calm.
Allow intuition to guide you. As the night went on, the outside calls increased, I read reports, I stayed up to date on external news. “Unfolding” allows for a natural flow in processing external. To process external, I need to know the facts. Actual facts, not widespread doom. Unfolding knows that I cannot control, manipulate, change the facts of external; however, it is my choice to honor my commitment to peace, love, joy, faith in all circumstances. This is what I allow into my personal space, and this is what I held on to throughout the day: peace, love, joy, faith.
Throughout the day, I received much unsolicited advice. In the form of “you should”/”should not”..”why are you”/”why are you not”, etc…I even received some criticism of my decision to raise my family on a boat. I understand this was love reacting to fear, so I was not judgmental, but I also chose to not listen. Thank you for the love, I shall create from that; no thank you to all else. An empowering choice.
I turned off the external voices and allowed my internal to guide me. An empath with the gift of clarity, I am confident when I am centered and allow for, that my steps are exactly right for the moment I am in. My mind, and yours, may redirect my steps by allowing external the control; when my heart is open to the moment, my intuition is spot on. Each and every time.
However, because technology is so advanced, I actually had time to access my faith and allow intuition to guide me. Reports showed I had a few hours before the tsunami would hit my area. When in crisis, my comfort zone is “unfolding” so I believe even if I had split seconds I would have followed the same process..Feeling: faith filled.
Live from your heart space. I received news that we needed to evacuate the boat. My heart sank. I open my heart to the moment as it is presented to me; if I was to lose my boat and everything on it (not a luxury, but my home, my cocoon, my oasis) I would relinquish it and begin again. My mind said oh, please no..my heart said all is well. All is well.
All of this happened in the middle of the night..in the back of my mind were details: how to present this to my children and guide us through the day, where to safely place our new puppy, I have absolutely minimal finances so how would I afford evacuation, what should we take..as panic and fear began to set in, I quickly turned off my mind and allowed my heart to lead. “Unfolding” says yes, do the work to clear space, set an intention, and then allow for…
So, I began to do the work. Not planning details for the day, because so much was unknown; but the work of clearing the space and setting the intention. The work of purposeful steps. The work of living present, in this very moment; regardless of external. The details were overwhelming: just to begin the day I had to work at my full-time job, my daughter’s school was closed so she needed care, the puppy needed a safe place, my son had school..and then the fact of evacuating our home. Just to begin the day; as the day unfolded there were huge decisions to allow for, quite rapidly, so I cleared space. By removing internal clutter, allowing my internal Being to be fully ready to access faith and heart space, intuition, and guidance. To be ready to move through whatever was presented. Let it be as it may. Thank you for this moment and all I have in this very moment. Feeling: peace.
Receive graciously. As I mentioned above, external details loomed large. My navigational tools to peace are love and gratitude. In the moment of fear when I could not access love and gratitude, I called a dear friend and asked for her to pray for me. I would communicate with her throughout the day whenever a need greater than I could fathom presented itself. She, in turn, passed my request to others. I was able to remain open to unfolding because I knew without a doubt that others were presenting to God and the Universe for me. I was able to open my heart to receive: many miracles were presented to me throughout the day. Thank you!
Miracles within details: for instance, not one person I called would take my puppy in, so as I left for work I had a choice to leave him on the boat in harm’s way..or to take him to the hospital with me and what, show up to the surgery room with a puppy in my arms??? (see, even one detail may be overwhelming!). In this case, I asked God please take care of this that is bigger than me, and at the moment I was carrying him to the car to bring to surgery with me, a friend I hadn’t talked with in months called and asked me could she help in any way..and she took my puppy for the morning…another friend took him overnight..
Another example is that when I went to work, I had no idea if my family would need a place to stay later, or where that would be, or how I would afford it. Too many if’s so I allowed for unfolding. When I discovered we needed a place to stay, a friend generously donated a hotel room for us. What a relief to have a safe, comfortable resting place to decompress and rest. A blessing to know this huge detail was taken care of!
Solutions are present, when I open the space and allow for, rather than try to manipulate and control. Solutions are only viable when I open my heart to receive !
Focus on and grow what you do have. When I left my boat, I had no idea what I would return to. Thank you, for allowing me the life changing experience of living my dream on a boat. Thank you for this precious gift. My home, with my entire life in it…What I knew in that moment was that the Coast Guard was not expecting waves, rather unpredictable currents that might damage the structure of the boats or docks and cause damage. What I knew then was that my family would be physically safe, regardless of what happened with our stuff. I released my attachment to stuff, and concentrated on love and gratitude. Thank you for the safety of my family. Thank you for the love and prayers we are receiving. Thank you. Feeling: gratitude.
Allow for *Everything is possible*! The tsunami hit our area with little impact. The concern over unpredictable currents has not been lifted, so there is still a small issue. However, the initial situation had passed. We would not be able to return to our boat, but we would be safe and comfortable. Having given praise for our safety this day, the unexpected happened. I share the gist of the following with you, to inspire you to move through whatever is blocking you on your path.
I had not compromised during the day, an easy way just to find a solution..I allowed love and gratitude to guide me, accessed faith and my heart space, and received graciously. By afternoon, I was physically exhausted from lack of sleep and an abundance of external, but my energy was pure and flowing easily. On the way to pick up my son from school, I received news that he had been stabbed in the hand. My son is a positive energy, kind, gentle, loving soul; a master manifester; and has been a target of bullies at school his entire life. (I recognize that this belief is limited and we will work on transforming that..for now, a target of bullies exists). Awareness says to pour extreme love into this situation. Even when faced with a tsunami..I had extreme love to tap into, because Universal Flow was right there..and my loved ones had covered us in prayer and light all day…Because I relinquished control, I had access to spare for the moment I needed it!
In a day full of miracles, here is the biggest one. I am a healer, and I had energy to heal. The details will stay within my family..but it was a surface wound and will heal well..Feeling: Wonder and awe.
All is well in the Universe when I allow it to be.
May I ask you this please..whatever your beliefs…may we collectively choose to pour love into the tsunami experience..There is rampant frenetic energy and I Feel if we ignore it and instead choose to focus on love and healing..we may then share love and healing.
This is the time to open our hearts to serve, to allow Faith to deepen, to give praise for the abundance in our life, and to continue to live fully.
Thank you for loving myself and my family. I very much appreciate all that has been shared with us!
