|Ahhh, I just came back from Peak Potential’s Wizard Training Camp. Just when I thought they couldn’t top Enlightened Warrior Camp….all I can say is WOW! I’ve sworn an oath not to reveal the processes we went through, but let’s just say that even more so than before, I can be the EYE of the STORM….the calm within the chaos.James and I had an incredible experience as a couple as well. There was one very “connecting” process that we went through where we had to coach each other through it. I don’t think we’ve ever been more heart-connected (i.e. intimate) before. We just jumped another level in our connecting. I wish all of that and more for you too.Speaking of being the eye of the storm, being calm within the chaos - I was tested pretty quickly. We arrived late Friday. Monday evening, I went to my counselor’s home with James for a couples counseling session. Afterwards we noticed a dent in my passenger side door. Although James was undeniably upset, I automatically “knew” this was my opportunity to practice being a “Wizard”.
Although inconvenient to have a dent and not know where it came from, I stayed out of reaction successfully and just did what I needed to do: I called the insurance company asking for instructions. They were very nice. I purposely felt the feelings of gratitude for how nice they were to deal with. I found out my deductible for collision was $1000. Well, it was more than I expected, but still I stayed out of reaction. I just assumed that there was some lesson I was supposed to learn but just hadn’t figured it out yet.
The next day I get a call from the insurance company. Apparently I have a special “ultra” program on my car insurance that they forgot that I had. My deductible was dropped to $100! Wow, I was really appreciative then. Right after that, I received a message from a young man who admitted to hitting my car. I was again in appreciation. My car insurance company was sure happy too.
When I called the young man, it was only then that I realized that it was my counselor’s son! Someone we knew! So again, I was in great appreciation. Because I knew he would “do the right thing”. It took him a couple days to finally call me, but I was not angry at him. Anyone can make a mistake.
So now I am thankful that not only do I not have to pay $1000 deductible, I don’t even have to pay the $100 deductible because someone admitted fault to the dent and will pay for me!
So what was the lesson?
Stay in non-reaction (i.e. trust) and watch the miracles occur in your life! In other words, the outcome of any situation depends upon how YOU react to it. Nothing is inherently GOOD or BAD. It is good or bad based on the “spin” you give it…your perceptions color your reality.
You might as well assume that everything that happens is for your higher good. Then you will understand the meaning of PEACE.
