The law of attraction

I’ve briefly mentioned it before but here is the low down and how the story goes. It was only a few weeks before we sold our house, with hardly any time left before we had to vacate, that I started to run errands to the grocery store to buy food and other necessities for the new humble abode. It would be different for sure in this new place for on my me and the Cinnamon Girl.

On three different occasion my total purchase at the register ended up being $111. I’ve noticed the second time, but the third time it happened really got my attention and I knew there was a message waiting for me.

I remember being distraught the first time I shopped by myself, for me, not for us, not for a common home. I walked through the aisles like a zombie, in my own world, suppressing the tears and all the hurt I felt inside from all the newness I had to adjust to. Surely it was by choice and yet it was in those moments that reality caught up saying “this is it, it’s really happening.” And then a message appeared.

After the third magical checkout and a total of $111 yet again my attention was on full alert and I had to look up the meaning of the number 111. Here is what I found.

The meaning of the number 111 is that you are manifesting what you’ve been focusing your attention on. Whether your past thoughts, feelings and actions were positive or negative, you’ve put yourself in a place to attract things (people and places) that match your energetic vibration. This is the law of attraction.

The universe was speaking to me and as little and subtle as the message was it was also very powerful and big for me. It was a nudge to keep going, to confirm that everything would be ok and that I was on track. The message was delivered and the number 111 had served its purpose. It didn’t show up again but the next shopping experience brought the number 112 as the new total for my purchase. Needless to say it got my attention from the very beginning since I wondering already if 111 was going to make a comeback. Instead a message arrived with 112.

Midlife and the Universe

Artist ~ Sourcing

Signs and messages always find us at the perfect timing, when we need answers, when we search for something, feel stuck, or have more inner work that needs to be done. Here is to all of us dreamers, the ones on a journey of finding self love, acceptance and being life long learners, leaning on each other and sharing our light. Long time, a fan of Brenè Brown, here is a little something to share that speaks to me.

I think midlife is when the Universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear. I’m not screwing around. It’s time. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – have to go.

Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts. I understand that you need these protections when you were small. I understand that you believe your armor could help secure all of the things you needed to feel worthy of love and belonging, but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.

Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventure ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worthy of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen.

Feeling fragile

It was the week of Thanksgiving and I was feeling more than usual. Like this thin layer of ice, I felt frozen, a coldness in a time I should spread cheer and be thankful. I know that deep down I was, and yet I found myself in a delicate state of being fragile.

It was Monday, the beginning of the week that this unexplained state came over me. Cinnamon had followed me into the closet and curled up against the bottom row of my hanging garments. I had been away from her for a few hours, subconsciously probably worrying about her allergies and discomfort. There she was, looking at me with those big eyes and the emotions just poured out of me. Lying down next to her, holding her close to my body, the tears just rolled down my face. Or at least it would have been this way if the rheumatoid arthritis would have not robbed me of the ability to produce tears. Now I’m just left with ugly crying and the cleansing tears to wash it all away have been absent for a few years. I hate it, and it often feels as if it’s all held back inside and the release never truly comes. The day ended ok and eventually we got ourselves off the closet floor where we had remained for quite some time.

At first I thought it was a one off, just a vulnerable moment, a kind of release (even without tears) that had come and gone. But it was not over and several times throughout the week I would find myself caught up in all sorts of emotions with thanksgiving day actually being the biggest struggle. I had woken up with a sore jaw and could barely open my mouth to eat anything. Throughout the day the dull pain just kept digging away at me, a constant pain, discomfort. Not only was there physical pain but also emotional distress.

There was something I had to get off and out of my system, but what was it, what was going on. By now I had reached a point I was close to actually feeling sorry for myself, for God knows what. And finally I recognized it and out of frustration I said that I had the most horrible time. I said it while being in the best company possible and I immediately felt bad because I didn’t want what I said to be misunderstood. What I meant was that I had the most horrible time because I couldn’t come to terms with what was going on. I couldn’t shake the sadness, whatever this was and it’s usually not a problem. I felt helpless, powerless and fragile. I felt I needed to cry, and I was instigating a reason that would finally justify the tears and how I was feeling. Stupid stuff, and really nothing at all would get to me. I was acting completely out of character which didn’t make thing easier. I was looking for something to warrant my behavior, as into getting what I deserved and asked for.

It was the day after thanksgiving that I came across something that finally explained it and made sense to me. A little article talking about an energy update and here is what it said.

There are 3 huge solar flares firing off right now. Solar flares carry massive amounts of energy. You might feel anxious, overwhelmed, have trouble focusing, get headaches, ear ringing, or toothaches. As your DNA gets activated by these solar flares, you might feel tingles, pulsations, itching, or vibrations like sensations on your body. Drink a lot out of water, exercise, and ground.

It all made perfect sense and there was no doubt in my mind that I was picking up on some of that energy. Does this ring true with you, have you experienced something similar. Perhaps an unrest, worrying, a state of being overwhelmed. Rest assured, all is well.
