Here is my holiday story for you.
My friend Betsy gave me this lovely peace sign door ornament. It is made from tiny bells, it doesn’t jingle too much, it has a festive feeling but most of all it makes me smile. When I see this peace sign I think about my friend,
how grateful I am to know her, how much fun we have together, how we inspire each other. I also am reminded to feel peace in every breath.
There is a part of me that connects to these feelings when I see this peace sign.
For each thought, there is a feeling. I am now anchoring an experience to looking at this peace sign. This anchor is creating these feelings whenever I see this peace sign. I do not need to do anything consciously, I automatically begin to smile and breathe peace in every cell.
Awesome stuff ~ right!
Guess what happened next ~ One day the peace sign disappeared. One moment it was on the door ~then next it was gone.
I looked everywhere. It was as if it vanished into thin air… There was a feeling of frustration in the air!
I let it go, and every so often I would look around once more to see if I could find it.
I replayed the scene in my mind, to see what I could find that would give me a clue to where the peace sign had gone. I remembered I was taking out all the paper recycle materials. At the time, we did check the bags that were going out the door, nothing.
Whenever I would come home, I would think about that peace sign and how much I missed it. I googled and shmoogled everywhere to see if I could replace it. Nothing.
Then I just let it go.
Here is what happened next.
After another fabulous weekend away, enjoying nature, breathing peace into every cell. Feeling fulfilled by just being, I came home to find the peace sign back on the door once more. Tom found it in the garage. We have no idea how it got there.
All of a sudden my light went on inside ~ I knew then it was not until I was aligned with peace inside of me that, my peace would show up once more on the outside. The day the peace sign ran away I can recall expressing frustration and irritability, certainly not the energy of peace.
I talk about this all the time, how we are human tuning forks attracting the frequencies which we are vibrating. This is a perfect example how our energy can change our experience. How “hey diddle diddle will cause the dish to run away with the spoon”! For whatever reason this is the rhyme that keeps showing up when these things happen, reminding me not to take myself so seriously, get out of those cranky pants, get up, laugh and dance!
So now all is well, peace is back in action, singing along a favorite song. Let’s use this holiday spirit to share peace and every breath and love in every heart.
Put a little love in your heart.. and the world will be a better place and the dish will come home with the spoon!
