God guides me to give & receive

I have been asking God for a lot of help lately. I have so much going on! I'm in the midst of preparing to upgrade my 8 year old computer, getting ready for the holidays, doing a few more home repairs, and caring for my aging dog. I'm sleeping on the couch again! My dog sleeps better in her den (aka my bedroom) when myself and my spirit entourage are not in it! This arrangement came in response to some sincere prayers a few months ago... "God I need sleep... give me a solution." Suddenly the answer popped in my head. I have a very, very comfy couch. And I have heat. The ocean is not in my living room like so many back east. I feel blessed.

I get up every morning and read my huge to do list to God. "Please help me get this done, unless you have better plans." I sit quietly with my angels for ten minutes, breathe and ask them to align my energy with God. My days, although crazy busy are flowing smoothly and miraculously. I have lost a great many of my illusions of control.. it is easier to let God steer me.

More and more as I surrender, I am doing things without thought. Sitting at the computer I suddenly find myself getting up, running errands, and coming back to pick up where I left off, all accomplished while my little elder doggie takes her nap. There is a beauty and a grace to God's timing, that isn't always obvious until we look back in retrospect.

I've been in communication with some amazing folks back east who went through Superstorm Sandy. Many were without power for weeks. One is lucky to be alive but lost her car. Without fail they are turning their hearts and lives to God and finding compassion, care, and camaraderie in those around them. The angels always point out that after Mother Earth releases her pressures, there is always an uprising of love. Truly I have witnessed such beauty in those who have been so affected and my heart and prayers are still with them. We raised quite a bit of money to assist, and we sent huge doses of light. I prayed so hard for it to warm up back east, even asking God if we could have some cool weather in trade for them warming up... and well, it may likely be coincidence, but Phoenix got cold and the east coast did warm up last weekend. I believe our prayers are powerful.

So whether you have need or excess pray and ask for the direction and you'll get it. You won't have to overthink it when its guidance. It just feels right inside. Guidance is a direction you just want to take without much thought. And while our brains are so useful in planning, programming, and number crunching, they can get in the way when we use them to replay stressful options, instead of saying, "I've done what I know to do, now it s God's turn to guide me." In such a dance, life does flow, even with business, complications, and challenges. I like letting the creator of the universe assist in my days! They sure go a lot more smoothly!
