Last Sunday, I was starting to get a bit overwhelmed by the many details and tasks calling for my attention. Somehow the month of January got very busy. I’m not complaining. One of my greatest joys is sharing the miraculous process known as Family Constellations, and this month I have the opportunity to share it three weekends in a row. However, in addition to marketing these workshops and coordinating logistics and travel plans, I have had quite a few time-sensitive responsibilities to take care of as President of the Big Sky Retreat. It was all swirling in my head when I woke up that morning and I wasn’t sure what to do first.
Thank goodness I remembered to ask Spirit for guidance. The answer I received was so simple. Stop swirling and just focus on what absolutely needs doing in this moment. There was no need to think about what to pack for my upcoming trip to Florida. I could do that later in the week. I didn’t have to think about what I would say in the introduction to my workshop happening later that afternoon at Unity of Houston, or how to fine-tune the exercise I planned to close that workshop. I could ponder both of those things on my lunch break. The only thing I had to think about in that moment was the best way to describe Family Constellations during the announcements at the 9AM and 11AM services to encourage people to experience the magic for themselves. What a relief to remember I didn’t have to think about everything all at once!
Are you feeling stressed about the New Year’s resolutions you made? Did you start a lot of new activities this year? Do you have a ridiculously long list of things you’d like to accomplish by the end of the month? The week? The day? Stop! Don’t think about them all at once. It will feel like a tidal wave coming at you! Just break it down. What is the next thing that is calling for your attention? Take care of only that. There will be time later to focus on the next thing. Here’s the best part. Once you give yourself permission to relax and stop trying to figure it all out at once, you will be in a much more tranquil state of mind to receive guidance on how to proceed.
When I stopped thinking about the whole day and focused only on the invitation, the words came to me easily. I had fun inviting the congregation to join me for an afternoon of miracles. Something I said must have resonated with them because many more people than I expected attended the workshop. I’d like to extend my gratitude to all of you reading this who shared your time and loving hearts in the Pyramid at Unity of Houston last Sunday. I know we created a tidal wave of healing energy together.
If you would like to surf this tidal wave of healing energy to release unhealthy patterns in your life, please join me for an upcoming Family Constellations workshop or schedule a private session. Thanks to the miracle of technology, private sessions can be done from anywhere in the world by telephone or computer. Please look around my website or send me an email for more information or to schedule a session. Check the calendar page on my website to see where I will be next.
Until then, don’t let the tidal wave of your “to do” list knock you over. Just grab your surfboard and ride the wave by doing only what’s needed next!
