This morning I ran into her.
I don't even know her name.
Walking out here in the woods, we only know the dogs by name.
I don't remember the last time I saw her.
She only had one dog with her, not the usual two. I asked her about Daisy, even though in my heart I already knew. We shared our stories of loss. Her Daisy. My Finnigan. Daisy only 5. Finnigan only 6.
That's when I heard it the first time. "When it's not what you are expecting" came out of my mouth.
After the walk, I sat in my office for a Skype interview. Two weeks ago, I'd finished a 6 month journey, as part of The Soul Circle. My mentor was recording my experience for her website. All I had to do was answer questions. Yep, you guessed it. Out it came, "when it's not what you are expecting."
Sitting in front of the TV tonight, I heard the words "when it's not what you were expecting."
Tell me once and I hear you.
Tell me twice and I take notice.
Tell me three times and it's not a coincidence, it's a message.
When we are expecting, we are locked in.
When we are expecting, we miss what is.
When we are expecting, we are in story.
When we are expecting, we are in judgement.
Expectations box us in.
Get out of the box.
PS - Did you know I work with people as well as animals?
On April 28th, I finished a journey. A journey of support like no other. A journey which left me inspired me to offer others their own journey. A journey of individual and small group support sessions, powerful weekly questions, a private Facebook group and unlimited support.
'Unleash Your Power' is a 3 month journey starting on Monday, May 15th from the comfort and convenience of your own home. Learn more by watching here (please click on the featured video heading 'Friday afternoon tea visit' to see accompanying write up). Registration closes Saturday.
I have space left for three women with open minds and open hearts who KNOW in their hearts IT'S time. If this speaks to you let me know. We'll connect for a chat to share program details and see if this is a fit for both of us.
