My first Virtual Family Constellations workshop went remarkably well last Saturday. I was amazed and humbled by the healing that happened and deeply touched by the words of gratitude below from one of the participants. Her experience proved without a doubt that even though we were not in the same physical location this miraculous process still works. The only thing that didn’t work well was my internet connection. Several times during the workshop, participants reported that my image froze and they could not hear me. Unfortunately, due to the location of our router and the instability of our current internet provider, this has been happening for months. Now that all of my business is online, I decided it was time to invest in a dedicated internet connection to my home office.
Earlier this year, I received an offer in the mail for a free $150 Visa Gift Card if I ordered internet with Comcast Business. While perusing the different internet packages on their website, I began an online chat with one of their customer service representatives. He quickly helped me determine which plan was best for my needs, and to my surprise and his, he was able to schedule an installation for the very next day! The $150 Visa Gift Card would pay for the installation fee. Everything seemed to be falling into place easily.
I’ve heard horror stories about poor customer service and beyond frustrating situations with Comcast. Apparently, I have good Comcast Karma because my experience was just the opposite in Florida and now here in Texas. The Comcast technicians I worked with this week were exceptionally friendly, efficient, and prompt! The first technician literally hit a snag when trying to run a cable between the utility box and our home. After he left, another technician arrived just a few hours later and resolved the issue! It only took a few emails to the first customer service agent I chatted with to get another installation date scheduled for Thursday. I can’t believe it took less than 4 days to get a strong, reliable, and fast internet connection in my office. I was prepared for it to take weeks given the current high demand for internet.
When I was thinking about what to write about this week, it occurred to me what a powerful metaphor it was to invest in a strong internet connection. During these challenging times when many of us are feeling isolated, it is more important than ever to invest in strong connections. I trust that you are finding ways to do that whether it’s Zooming with friends or family, deepening your spiritual practice, joining an online group, or simply going outside at night to gaze at the stars. If you need some spiritual support, I am offering 45-minute Life Coaching calls on a love offering basis. You can also join one of my online ACIM study groups or register for the next Virtual Family Constellations Workshop. All are excellent ways to experience connection and healing. Visit my website or send me an email for more information.
Until next time, may the twinkling stars remind you that you are part of a great big Universe and never alone.
