I attended a workshop recently, and whilst I was looking forward to the subject and what I would learn, I found that I was becoming quite bored and depressed by what was happening. The workshop was a great subject too – money and love! However, as we progressed through the morning, I learnt some new things, but at the same time – I was drifting away from what was being taught, and found myself making ‘to-do’ lists.
We missed break because of the interaction of the group, and at lunch time, we were given a couple of tasks to complete. I found at this point that they took me into an even deeper ‘funk’ – something that just didn’t feel right to me. I also realised that I had no negative beliefs around money or love, well not anymore – and I certainly didn’t want to “dig around” to find them!
I went to lunch finding an old fashioned American diner, and over my burger and chips, I pondered around the idea of not returning to the workshop. I knew that this may be a sign of me hiding away from what was going to be taught in the afternoon – or I had could take the time out for myself, and give my spirit the rest that it needed. I had been working the night before, and went to bed late, got up early! So I asked for a sign. Do I go back to the workshop?
Heading to Caffe Nero and getting a large Americano (the workshop was making me yawn a bit too!), I headed back to the building. As I turned the corner on the street, a huge gust of wind propelled me forward – here is my sign I thought! Then, as I entered the building, the security guard hiding behind his desk told me that I couldn’t go in with my coffee! I stood frozen thinking that I had seen a few people with coffees in there, including the workshop leader!.
I walked outside, with my steaming hot coffee, thinking I couldn’t really drink all of this in the next ten minutes – but then realised, I had asked for a sign. There was my sign – time to go home!
Spirit will always guide us one way or another, its up to us to choose to listen or not!
