Okay, so I took another week off from posting a blog post, but I did it in anticipation of playing out the last two days of October so I could reflect on what my lesson learned was for this past month.
I'm going to start out by explaining a crazy phenomenon/synchronicity that my partner, John, and I experienced a few weeks ago.
Let me set the scene, it's a chilly fall Friday night. John and I go to one of our favorite spots for dinner and drinks which happens to be right next to my apartment. It's one of those neighborhood spots that the locals like to go to - a warm, family-feeling, homey, kind of place. This place is special to us because we've spent a ton of time in our relationship in this bar.
It's a crowded night and we are sitting in the back corner having a deep conversation about some struggles that my partner is facing in his professional life. These struggles have grown into something substantial, and they need proper attention to sort through. As we are talking about what next action John should be taking, I notice a woman approaching our table in the corner of my eye.
She has her to-go box and coat in hand, and she interrupts our conversation saying, "I'm so sorry, I don't mean to interrupt your conversation, but I was on my way out the door when I felt something come over me to tell you something. I know I'm a complete stranger and this is going to sound cookey, but I just wanted to let you know that whatever you have going on in your life right now, you need to let it go. You have a huge ray of light hanging over your head right now, and everything that you're going through is going to be alright."
Astonished and big-eyed, I turn to John and my eyes start to well up. I ask this woman if she was listening to our conversation because we were just talking about what to do next. She said she was clear on the other side of the bar and that an unexplainable force grabbed her by the hand and led her over to us.
Now, I know that this all sounds wild, but the night before, I was praying to God for help in releasing any fear that I had for John and myself. I asked God to help me send love and light into the world, and sure enough, a woman the following night approaches us with this news. Crazy right?
My takeaway from the month of October is to trust that God/Gaga and her angels are always watching over us and answering our prayers. My lesson is to feel the love and light instilled in us by God/Gaga and use it to release any negative feelings we have towards any other person. The people who might be on our "s*it list" are the ones who need more compassion and love. So while I'm still working on letting go of negative feelings towards others, I am definitely taking this lesson into November and onwards.
Thanks y'all, ily!
