TRUSTING SPIRIT WITH YOUR LIFE
I have always been a person planning and projecting where I want to be in relation to my life. I wrote a list of what I wanted to achieve in the shortest possible time ie., married with children, a loving husband, a wonderful social life, lots of money in the b
I rushed into finding the “perfect husband” at 21. However what I had overlooked was that I was imperfect and therefore my judgment was flawed and my criteria for perfection was unrealistic and warped. I was 21 and totally unprepared.
To cut a long tortuous story short – after thirteen years and two gorgeous sons later I was single.
Spirit flung me forward into the world of work and as a consequence I discovered myself. I made new friends. Friends that reflected the new enlightened me.
One of these new friends showed me transcendental meditation and my path was set. I went on self-development courses, I wrote another list of what I wanted to achieve – it was completely different from my first list.
I began to realise that when one comes up against adversity, there is always a light, an opportunity, recognise it and capitalise on it and your life will benefit.
I was working for a large corporate City firm. I had just come back from two week’s holiday and preparing for work the next morning. Sunday evening the phone rang. It was a work colleague telling me that there had been redundancies at work (including my boss) and she told me to be prepared on Monday morning. It taught me a hard lesson. Never depend on one source of income. Always diversify. I sat and wrote another list. One of the things on that list was to learn tarot. I did and it changed my life.
As I reflect back on my life I realise there has always been a pivotal moment, a sudden situation which has catapulted me onto a new path.
There was the time I realised the people I was working for happily for a year were racist and condoned murder (we had been discussing politics). I knew I could not work for these people a moment longer (I had drawn the 5 of pentacles) so I rang an old friend who told me there was an opening at his City firm and that then sent me on a new direction. I drew the 8 of Wands – the card of communication that morning!
I found a new partner a man whom I loved and cared for, a spiritual man. A flawed man but a good man. But things were not right between us. Then after six years Spirit intervened and the relationship ended suddenly and badly. I knew I was being protected when I asked Spirit for a sign as I was driving home one day and the car in front of me had a logo “Protected by Angels”.
Spirit worked miracles and everything fell into place I found a beautiful flat immediately, people rallied round, I now live happily alone, excited about where Spirit is going to send me next, who is coming my way. What new adventures will unfold. I drew out the Magician card – master of my own destiny.
