In just the past two months, my life has changed in so many ways. I almost wouldn’t even recognize myself or my lifestyle the way things have shifted. Everything is different. And everything is so much better.
Two months ago, I was working at a job that I hated. Way too much stress, demands, pressure, tension, and tears. And I couldn’t see a way out.
But I was open – to books, images, and ideas. To love and kindness. To finding the good in each other and in each moment. Desperate for a release from the stress, I was reading spiritually-oriented books, devouring all that I could. And the more I read, the more I opened.
One of the books I was reading at that time talked about manifesting your reality. It said to visualize a perfect day – what would it look like? What would you be doing? I tried thinking of a different job that I would like, but all I could picture was being home. My perfect day would simply be at home, at peace. So that’s what I pictured.
Three days later, I was fired from that job that I hated. And now I am home, at peace. Synchronicity is amazing. I think being open allows synchonicity to happen all around you.
And without all that stress, I have opened even further. Joyously open to everything. To trees and clouds and flowers and rainbows. To the grass and the rain. To the bugs and the dirt. To the incredible joy in seeing a leaf fluttering in the breeze. To the exhilaration of seeing sunlight dance around the yard, through the trees. To the intensity and depth of the magnificent colors in a flower, a weed, or a piece of wood. To the people in cars, in lines, in stores – they are all just another me.
I used to chant “open and flow” to help the flow of traffic during my commute to work. Now I chant “open and flow” to life itself. To the powerful joy that flows through me and through everything, through all of life itself. To the incredible “WOW” that manifests as everything around us. To all that IS.
I feel like I have been reborn. And in a way, that’s true. I am starting a whole new life. Without that work stress, I have rediscovered and come back to me, to who I really am. And I am finding incredible depths of love, compassion, and joy. And openness.
I have finally come home. And I am open to whatever happens, whatever life offers. Open and flow.
