Today I had the most amazing epiphany ever and I want to share it with you as this may apply to you as well.
Money and I have issues. Always have, no matter how hard I tried to improve it. Past Life readings told me I have a Poverty Complex, meaning a took vows of poverty for my Spiritual Life. Well, that didn't help me.
One day, many years ago, I learned the Feng Shui concept of clearing clutter to make space for the new. So I cleared all the clutter I could. It worked. For two months. Then back to the old issues. Then the Law of Attraction rose up. I worked with that heavily. That worked too!! Also for only two months. I gave up.
Two days ago my car started making an awful noise. Great, this is going to cost money, money I don't have. And with everything else going on, I don't have time to deal with this! So I made an appointment to take my car to the dealership to have it looked at and had to cancel another appointment I had that I made two weeks ago as a result. More time juggling!
Today, as I was driving to the dealership I started to beg and plead with my Guides. "Please let this be a simple thing, that does not cost a lot of money. It's okay if it takes a while and I have to sit and wait, please just don't let it be a huge expense. I have the time as I budgeted the time for it, but I don't have the money". Then it hit me and it hit me hard!!! I will explain...........
I am a very busy person. I live between two countries, I run two businesses, help my husband run his business, have a business with a friend, I am a deputy editor of a fairly new magazine so lots of energy goes there to help it grow, I have a 7 year old daughter, two step children ages 11 & 16, and still have to run a household - cook, clean, laundry, etc. I never have any time for anything.
Today I realized that because I never have time to do anything, that causes the money issues. Huh? You ask. Well, look at it this way. What is time? What is money? These are energies. As are emotions. If you burn one up, overuse it, etc, it will cost you elsewhere. What I realized is that by spending all my time being too busy to fit anything else in, it costs me money. As soon as I do get some in, it goes straight out again, and here I was facing the possibility of a huge car problem.
Look at it as a bank account but not for just money. A bank account for Energy. All energy. Money, time and emotions. You have so much energy in your account, you make deposits and withdrawals like any other account. If you empty it, then you have to dip into your Energy Credit Line, thus will cost you something else "in interest". The same with emotions,. If you worry about money too much, you spend your emotions, and thus time, so in the end it costs you money!
And the results of my car issues? Today, I knew I was going to be at the dealership for some length of time, so I budgeted my time. I took work with me and I did it at the dealership. As soon as I was done a particular task, they called my name. I expected that was the point they were going to tell me what was wrong, how much money it was going to cost and how much time it would cost. When I acknowledged my name being called, I was told my car was ready. Really?? Wow. I go to the counter they tell me what was wrong (and it was a very simple thing), hand me my keys and tell me where my car is parked. "But I owe you for the work though" I offered. No, there was no charge!!
I learned the exceptionally valuable lesson that if I budget my time, and allow myself to afford time for things, then it will not cost me money. I will start to work with this concept from now on.
And.....I was given an entry to win a new car in a draw in January. I think the Gods and Goddess want to see if I have learned my lesson............

The 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Juan was a few days ago. I thought I would share this article I wrote about it several months later.
September 28, 2003 began like
any other Sunday in . There was not much on the agenda for the day,
so I was taking the opportunity for a welcomed break. But by mid-afternoon that all changed. We received a phone call from my
father-in-law, a retired meteorologist.
He checked the weather forecast for the day and saw that a hurricane;
Hurricane Juan; was headed right for us. , Dartmouth NS
Promise to a Hurricane
We spent the next couple of hours putting away all our patio furniture, barbeque, and lawn ornaments, making sure that all was secure when the hurricane hit. Finally we were satisfied all was safe in our yard, but then we wondered about our neighbors. No one else seemed to be aware of the impending storm, no one else was hurrying to put away their lawn furniture and accessories.
Later that night the winds started to pick up. We watched the reports on the local television stations, and waited for the storm to come. And it did. Just after the winds really started to blow and howl hard. My bedroom window was open and I began to hear wood splintering. Since our backyard is all trees, I was worried a tree would crash in through our bedroom window. I began to worry and I didn't feel safe at all.
Then I had an idea. I decided that I would journey to the Eye of the Hurricane and ask to keep us safe. So, I did just that. As I lay in bed, I imagined a drumming sound to put me in the journey state. I went to the Lower World and asked my helping Weather Spirits to take me to the Eye of the Hurricane. What an amazing feeling that was! So much wind and turmoil but so much peace and tranquility at the same time.
I spoke to the hurricane. I asked the hurricane to keep us safe. Then I thought about my neighbors and asked to keep them safe. Then I thought about my entire street, I can’t just ask for us and our immediate neighbors, I have to ask for the safety of the entire street. So, I did just that. But, I felt the hurricane would want something in return. So, I made a bargain.
I promised that if the hurricane kept us safe, I would never speak negatively of the hurricane. Suddenly, I heard a large booming voice say “YOU WILL BE PROTECTED”. This large booming voice startled me, but I felt comforted. I then tried to fall asleep as the storm passed.
The next morning, my husband got up and left for work. Since the power was still out from the hurricane passing through, we could not hear the reports on the radio. About 20 minutes later he came bursting through the door saying ”You've got to come out and see this!” He explained he couldn't get to work because the roads were blocked by downed trees.
We walked down the street and met up with some neighbors. As we walked along, we were amazed to see all the trees that fell, but no property was damaged! Two vehicles had trees on them, but they were not damaged in any way. Another neighbor had a tree fall against the deck on the back of the house, but the deck was not damaged. Lots of trees were down, but they just lay across yards, and the street. We were amazed!
A couple of weeks later, the
was opened to the public for one
weekend. The park was closed due to the
amount of devastation caused by the hurricane.
Huge sections of the park were destroyed. As we walked through the park, we could hear
other peoples comments, hear their sadness and see them crying. It was very difficult to walk through and
see the extent of the damage. Point Pleasant Park
It bothered me so much that when we got home, I had to journey to the trees. I was very surprised by their words to me! The trees told me not to be sad for them since they were not sad. They had a good long life, and to them, this is just a part of the life cycle. They knew this would happen and that was okay as it helps create more life. Those words really impacted me and I have not been sad since.
Over the next few months, I talked to a lot of people who were affected by the storm. I worked as an insurance broker at the time and for two months straight, I talked to people who had damage of one sort or another. However, with all the people I talked to, I noticed a common comment made by almost everyone. “It was amazing, with all the trees that fell, none fell across the house. They fell all around the house!”
It was several months before I realized that the booming words I heard from the hurricane “YOU WILL BE PROTECTED” that night, did not just apply to me, but to everyone!
I saw a lot of good things come from this hurricane. I saw any trades person who needed work had it for at least six months or more. I saw families spend time together playing games since the TV could not be turned on or computer games played as the power was out from to 7 days. I saw neighbors come together and have street barbeques to use up food so it wouldn't spoil.
Yes, some people did have more serious damage, and yes a few lives were lost due to the hurricane or as a result of the hurricane. That cannot be overlooked however; the overall greater good also cannot be ignored!
So, in keeping with my promise, this hurricane was amazing!!!
