So I'm a celebrity Spiritual Teacher who's on TV; how do I end up sleeping on a porch? Am I meant to have foreseen this?
If you know me; which I like to think many do, the idea of me sleeping on the porch of my B&B in Battersea Park at 3am because I had been accidentally locked out seems like a ridiculous idea - irony to the point that you just have to laugh. Not because of any reason other than the fact that between being psychic and really organised it seems impossible!
I am one of those people who as much as I trust in the Spirit absolutely - and I do, I have a lot of Earth element in my chart and that means I like practicality, I like to know a plan, I like solid understanding of where I am going and what I am doing, most of all Earth signs love their home environment, they need to feel stable and secure. Accidentally locked out without a suitable option is just something unheard of, let alone in an unknown city, or at 3am, or... and the list goes on.
There is a very common theme coursing through the energy at the moment and that is that anything can happen, actually - let's say anything might happen, just to clear the karma of a past experience you long forgot. I sat there at 3am wondering the age old question of 'Why me?' - not so much from a victim perspective, just asking Spirit where this lesson came from simply for the fact that I had certainly not manifested it through my conscious or unconscious thought - that I was aware of anyway. So as I was sitting there at 3am freezing (I definitely misjudged my ability to sleep under these circumstances), I sat there asking Spirit to teach me. They apparently weren't opening the door or changing the weather for me, which meant that there was a lesson in it which needed to be walked through.
When I clearly asked Spirit 'Why?' they replied with 'Why not?' as 'Why?' is a pointless question, we don't necessarily ever need to understand the why of things, it's simply not our job, our job is to take what is and flow with it. We aren't victims; our perspective can certainly paint it that way. We are just on this ride which we chose before we manifested physically, that's all, the more you remind yourself of this simple the fact, the more you will flow with the river of your life.
When you enter a new geographic location - especially if Spirit conspired to get you there, it often means that you have deep karmic ties to that area. Meaning; energetically there is much which needs to connect, heal, and transform through your presence there. This is what I am finding in London, as I have lived (this lifetime) most of my life in a place where hardly any of my past life experience comes from I have finally returned to the closest thing to 'home', Europe. Being in this place is like a rushing river of past life memories which I have to choose to not get consumed by analysing constantly so I can remain present in this moment in time. Coming here has meant that immediately I begun clearing things in the past which I was never powerful enough to do before. This is the same in your life as this Age we are in now is similar to the analogy of a practical exam. We are getting ready for graduation, we all planned and also successfully made bids to be on the Earth at this totally unique moment in time and space - not everyone got the chance to be here, but you did so there is absolutely no doubt that there is a lot in store for you.
So, let's get back to the sleeping on a porch part of the story. I am not perfect - I am the first to admit it, but I do pride myself on taking whatever comes and working myself into the best position and perspective of that event. This was a really confronting feeling though, being stuck outside, running out of iPhone battery (disaster!), starting to really freeze, no one answering the doorbell. The newest part was that I only knew people I had met that week to possibly rely on, and only one person who was remotely close to me in South London. I am used to firstly never getting locked out, and secondly; knowing loads of people and having many options. But in this experience and scenario, I had to take surrender to a totally new level.
I must say though; it's interesting where your mind goes at points like that, to what people - or should I say to what people you wish might save you, or at least telepathically know you are in peril. Sometimes Spirit doesn't want things to unfold like that, and the experience doesn't end with a knight in shining armour saving you (sigh). You save yourself simply by not overreacting or overdramatising, just being.
This is part of the core of the lesson at hand; whatever the experience is we just have to roll with it - PERIOD. We have to keep ourselves from thinking 'Oh, woe is me; how could this happen -God, why hath thee forsaken...' etc. Stuff happens, this could be interchanged with a swear word if it suits you more, but the point is that stuff happens and it is only us who decides the way we colour it, and I have realised that colouring it in a positive fashion which makes me feel great about it, not only lets it roll past quicker, it actually shows me the blessing that connects to and from it. I don't agree with the concept that we are just meant to have stuff happen to us and it's God or Spirit punishing you or playing a game with you, that's incorrect. I know that everything that is happening is happening because we chose it before we started this life, it is just an experience, and this lifetime we each individually chose the components we would like to have. From Spirits perspective, death, poverty, sickness, riches, overseas holidays, are all just different experiences. So if you have been a royal family member one lifetime, the next one you might choose to be the pauper who gets overlooked on the street simply because it's different. Spirit does not judge the rightness or wrongness of the experience; it is all right in the eyes of Spirit for the purpose of expansion. The more that we can all get that, and hold onto that, and just get excited by that, the more we can observe what is happening and then shift our lives into a place that we now want, and whatever causes us joy. You can be conscious of what is, and then choose something different, you now get to choose where you go from here.
Always remember one of your Divine decreed rights is to be happy, and that powerful perspective of yours can colour the sky in whatever colour makes you feel joy. Who cares if people think you have rose coloured glasses. The moment that your rose coloured perspective is so real that you don't know it's not real that is the moment when your perspective has created your reality and physical manifestation must follow.
