Avoiding anxiety

Many of you have heard this - last autumn I had huge unnamed anxieties come up. As I sat to look them in the eye, I realized I was dealing with fears that came from other lifetimes. The angels told me to go get a past life regression hypnosis and in the course of two hours all the fears and anxieties disappeared.

Ever since then, life's challenges have just seemed different. I'm not getting in a tizzy when something breaks, nor am I getting lost in fear when something goes haywire in my body. I just sit, breathe, and handle it. It is amazing how much energy is freed up to actually solve life's challenges when we refuse to give into the energies that want to keep us confused, spinning around in our heads and separate from our guidance. The less I worry, the more life brings me assistance.

Three weeks ago for example, after paying to get the dryer and stove fixed, the freezer started leaking! So I called my favorite appliance repair folks and was calm and pleasant on the phone as we tried to find a time for them to come out and fix the freezer. When it became apparent that it was not going to be easy to find a time soon, the lady who does the scheduling stopped, took a breath and said to me, "Honey do you want me to tell you how to fix it yourself." My response - "Yes please!" And so this dear soul spent time with me on the phone detailing every little step of the repair. That night, to my amazement, I easily fixed the leak in the freezer myself. She saved me a few hundred dollars and told me it was because I was always so nice and calm when I talked them.

Fast forward a few more weeks. Last Thursday during my afternoon clients I thought I was having hot flashes but instead discovered my air conditioning had gone out. It was 90 in the house and over 100 degrees outside. I didn't bother getting bothered. It was after hours and the company I have a service contract with wasn't available. So instead of getting in a tizzy, I asked the angels to help me find a 24hr repair service. Sure enough a gentleman came out and did a temporary fix. I am sure it was not an accident that God sent me a repair man who needed me to tell him he wasn't crazy because he saw spirits! Three hours later the a/c broke again! I did what the man had showed me to temporarily fix it and called my regular company. I was blessed with cool air and a work-around on and off throughout the night, and although I had to reschedule all my clients the next afternoon, the a/c is now fixed for good. If I had let anxiety about money, the problem, or the fact that this has been appliance-repair year for me get the best of me, I am certain this would not have been so easy on me.

Anxiety and fear are pretty strong energies on this planet. But your soul can take charge of your life and your mind again if you keep choosing to sit, breathe, pray, and look at the truth of your life today. That is a far happier and more powerful way to live.

May peace and calm abide in your heart this week.
