Well, I haven’t heard from my former co-worker yet. So, that intuition didn’t really fly. Remember, I’m listening to my Inner Guide and paying more attention to how I feel. The other day, the thought that there was going to be an earthquake popped into my mind, and I thought, “Naw, there hasn’t been one in so long”, and then I said a little prayer, “I am safe from earthquakes”, then I let the thought go. Then I got ready and left the house, and in my car, I hear that there was just an earthquake in Channel Islands. That’s about 15 minutes from where I live. I must have been on the road, because I didn’t feel it. It was about a 5.3 in strength. Decent size. Now I know my Inner Guide was letting me know it was coming, and I was protected from it. (I hate earthquakes! They have always scared me to the point of uncontrollable shaking.) .
Next in Step 2, is to go to someplace busy, and sit and people watch. Pay attention to my opinions of the people walking by. Then see if my thoughts are ones that will bring good or harm to my life. Then, I am to pay attention to my thoughts on a regular basis,
and acknowledge the unkind and judgie thoughts, then turn them into loving, non-judgie thoughts. I discovered that when I know I’m supposed to be watching my thoughts, no bad thoughts come into my mind. I just observe people. Today, I forgot about that, and felt some irritation at some high schoolers who were playing a rough game of catch with a football near me….the whole afternoon! It annoys me because I’ve been hit in the head several times in these innocent situations. So, my immediate thought was that, “these testosterone driven boys feel the need to show off on the beach, right in front of me.” It made me realize that I do still think mean things about people sometimes. I have a super tough time when people are consistently rude and talk down to me. I tell myself that it’s not personal, that it’s their issue, but, damn, it’s challenging at times!
