Life continues to get more interesting! Wayne Dyer has just written another book called “I can see clearly now “. This title resonates with me as I can see clearly the journey I have been on, where I now must go and the lessons I have needed to learn to be able to fulfill my purpose. Even though I playfully ask the universe if I can have a bit of a break from learning lessons, I am grateful and can see that it has taken some hard knocks to really help me see more clearly about this next part of my life.
Now that I have let go of my anxiety, the doors are opening wide and opportunities I have never dreamed of are coming my way. As well as exciting corporate work within a team that works hard but knows how to laugh, the speaking engagements are so rewarding and I know that these are an important part of my journey. It is so humbling when you see hearts being touched and hope lighting up in troubled eyes. Sizzling at Seventy – Victim to Victorious has been an important catalyst and once more I am grateful for the opportunities arising which will allow me to do the work I am so passionate about.
On Tuesday after my talk, some people flocked around for me to sign my book. I felt someone beside me, and as I looked up, I saw this beautiful woman, around my age. Her face was etched in grief and she reached out to me and said, “There is hope Lyn, isn’t there?” I assured her that there was, and as we clasped each others hands, I felt a deep connection.
In less than two weeks I will have an operation on my shoulder to repair a badly torn tendon and my first thoughts were, “Why now when I am up and running again”? Then unexpectedly I received work and royalties that have given me enough money to be able to pay for an operation which I couldn’t have afforded in previous months.
I then had to grapple with resentment. I was finally earning some money but I had to spend my first lot of payment in a year on a shoulder repair. I struggled with this until Hay House gave me such a great gift. I registered for the free online World Summit and received six free interviews which were all inspiring. One clip, very pertinent to me, was Suze Orman speaking about money. She said that ”money is a manifestation of who you are.” She also said that sometimes we are afraid of discovering our true purpose in life! BINGO-I got it! This was another lesson I needed to learn and instantly my concern about money melted away. I know I am being taken care of.
Now I am at peace and remind myself about the mood framework outlined in my book – acceptance but not resignation; ambition to keep going forward to fulfil my purpose; wonder and curiosity about what the future holds. My shoulder is just a blip in the big scheme of things and my special friend Gitanjali is coming from Sydney to look after me.
Yes Wayne, I also can see more clearly!
