I plopped down on my bed with a much needed sigh. It was the first quiet moment of the day week.
My son’s fish had a white fungus growing on its face. The garbage bill was double what it was suppose to be. We just moved and my daughter refused to unpack her 10 boxes, which she thought looked better in the hallway. My to-do list was leaving page one. Fridge was close to empty and the internet wasn’t working.
Ever had a week like that?
Feeling the stress of the week, I asked myself, “What is on my heart today?”
Besides listing all the things that felt like an uphill battle, I sank into my heart and the most profound guidance came to me.
“Allow what is on your heart
to be informed by what is in your heart.”
I immediately jumped into self-coaching mode. “What does my heart have to say about these stressful two weeks?” “What wisdom is in my heart to help me now?”
I gave space and allowed answers to percolate. I wrote down my answers. I felt ease. I felt peace. I smiled. What was in my heart, showed me that what is on my heart is nothing more than passing problems that are temporary and resolvable.
The Course in Miracles teaches us this: “You have taught yourself what you are, but you have yet to allow what you are teach you.”
