Life works in mysterious ways as we all know. I just had one of those very synchronistic moments, which illustrates this so perfectly and I thought I’d share it with you. It’s a very simple thing, but the way the universe works makes me laugh sometimes.
Around three years ago my Mum lost her propelling pencil on one of her stays with us. It was a bit special as my late Father had given it to her many years ago as a gift.
Mum was sure she left it on the bookshelf and it had fallen off. We pulled everything off but didn’t find it. We looked down the sides of the armchairs by the bookcase, we tipped them up and unvelcroed the backs, but no pencil. We looked a couple of times more and every time Mum came to stay we’d talk about how mysteriously the pencil had disappeared.
Two weeks ago we put our leather lounge suite – of which the armchairs were a part – on Gumtree. First we didn’t get any interest, then we had two people come and look who decided they were the wrong size. I kept going over in my mind why they weren’t selling. There was definitely nothing wrong with them, the price was right and even quite low, and I was a bit disheartened.
Then two or three days ago my mobile phone fell down the back of the leather sofa – not the armchair! I unvelcroed the back to get out my phone and lo and behold there was the pencil. Not anywhere near the bookcase or the armchairs!
So what, you say?
As soon as I had messaged my Mum to tell her the pencil was found, I noticed I’d had a message from someone saying they would like to come and look at the lounge suite. That was yesterday morning. They came at 3pm and today at 10am the lounge suite was gone.
Again, so what, you say?
To me this is a perfect illustration, outside of my clinic, of removing what I call in clinic obstacles to cure and outside it, blocks to moving forwards. Sometimes it’s the little things that we need to do or change and we just need to trust the universe that it is all happening for a reason.
I had a hunch the lounge suite wasn’t going to sell until something else had fallen into place – I didn’t imagine it was going to be the pencil! Oh and I also found the lense out of my spectacles that I also lost about two years ago, so it was definitely about “seeing” something for what it was.
It is the tiny things that make the change so don’t be impatient when things aren’t working. Step back and wait and all will be revealed.
