Nothing important ever comes to you because you feel desperate to get it.
Go to peace first.
Everything you long for will meet you there.
When I read this message a few days ago, I realized that I had been doing a lot of either-or thinking and neither option was pleasing to me. One solution would make me too tired. The other wouldn’t provide enough money. Other options didn’t seem to fit my needs and wants. What to do?
I worried. I stressed. My blood pressure went up. Headaches prevailed. You know the routine. We’ve all been there.
Reading this quote caused my brain to shift gears. “I know that. Why haven’t I gone to peace before this? Blaming myself for what I had not done was useless. In fact, it added more stress to the situation. I must try a calmer way to reach a decision.
I took a few deep breaths and sat quietly for a while until my racing heart became still. Then I whispered, “I choose to be at peace with this situation. The answer will come at the proper time. The situation will resolve itself for my highest good. Thank you.” Then I went about my business.
So far, I don’t have a decision, but a few ideas are edging into my awareness and suggesting I do some basic research. Best of all, I’m not stressing. I know that a solution will present itself at the appropriate time.
Spirit, I thank you for bringing this message when I needed it most. I’m grateful that your quiet assurance is available to each of us. All we have to do is ask. And, so it is.

I need that reminder constantly…
So do I, that’s why I wrote it. Have been feeling better since I wrote draft a couple days ago. It works!
Dear Energywriter we missed you at the Author’s Meeting yesterday. Your presence is dynamic just like your writing. That pit squeeze play isn’t in your
portfolio. How’s that coming from a friend? MJ.
My car was in the shop. All okay now. What pit squeeze play? I’m not tracking what you mean. I missed seeing all of you. How about a get together soon. I have a coupon from Panera’s.
Nice that you wrote, it has been a while.
Keep it up, we all need positive messages and lessons.
Thank you. I feel like I’m beginning to climb out of the pit I’ve been in.
