Why I'm thrilled I smashed my smartphone
As I write this it is a magnificent 25 degrees celsius outside even though the sun has long since set. It is our first warm day of spring here in Melbourne after a long and freezing winter. By the time you read this, though, Melbourne will be back in the grip of winter weather. And despite feeling so expansive and care free today, I’m just going to roll with it.
I’m going to roll with it the same way I did late last week when I smashed the screen on my smartphone. In fact, I was laughing my head off with joy at the cleverness of the Universe. Want to know why? Just minutes before I had completed a session with one of my clients. He had reminded me of a quote from Byron Katie. When something goes completely differently to your expectations, try saying…
I like it like this!
My client recalled how for him as the contents of his fridge smashed all over his kitchen floor a few days prior, instead of hitting the rage button as he might have done previously, he simply took Byron at her word and exclaimed, ‘I like it like this!’ It was as impossible for him not to laugh as it was for me when just a few minutes after hearing his story, I found myself collecting my shattered iphone from the kitchen floor, and immediately exclaiming, ‘I like it like this!’ The invitation from the Universe to really understand the message was too hilarious not to enjoy. Besides, what choice did I have? As Byron Katie, one of all time favourite spiritual teacher’s offers us…
When you argue with reality, you lose, but only 100% of the time.
In my open and contented state about the reality of my iphone, it came as no surprise, but with a great deal of gratitude, that less than 2 hours later my dear friend Jess offered me her ‘old’ (perfect working order) iphone for absolutely nothing in return. Of course the Universe responded like this. Why wouldn’t it? I was in total agreement with the state of life just as it was, and from that place of peace and openness, the good stuff comes rushing in. It is the law.
This is the space from which we can be living all the time when we open to our inner knowing. When we reside in communion with our Soul we are in flow with the Universe. We trust our partner (the Universe!) It’s that simple.
If you’re ready to open the door to the language of the Universe, and move into radical trust, then join me at the next Intuitive Intelligence one day training here in Melbourne.
Love and ALL the light to you,
