I was wandering around Manhattan the other day and I was window shopping.
Suddenly I felt myself drawn to a store and wandered inside.
I began to look at some of the merchandise and struck up a conversation with the owner of the shop.
He limped over to his desk and I said, “What did you do to your leg?”
He limped back over to me and told me the story.
Here is the short version…
He was hit on the street by a car and it’s a neighbor and he is going to court in a few days to establish liability so he can file a damage suit.
He then began to rile himself up about how his wife really botched the deposition and he wanted to kill her for saying stupid things and I said “STOP.”
I began to ask questions about his trial and allowed him to blow off some steam.
I then asked, “Do you want me to help you to stay calm tomorrow on the stand?”
He said, “YES!”
The first thing I said was this, “I need you to keep angry thoughts about your wife OUT of your mind. What’s done is done. I need you to keep thinking good thoughts about her. I also need for you to stop thinking words like “crucify ” and “I’m done in” etc. When you are in court, use your breath to provide space between your responses. Do not spit out your answers like a dog who is panting. Take your time. If the judge says to hurry up, say you want to respond responsibly and truthfully.”
I do not know if he will take my advice but here’s what I do know. He may not have lambasted his wife as he was getting ready. He may hear my words in his head. I may have averted some very awful verbal abuse in their household when he went home.
Can I be sure?
Never. There is never an “I am sure.”
This is what I can be sure about. My mission is always present. I am always looking for an opportunity to guide. I was lead into that store and lead to that owner and I did what I do naturally.
When we are on mission, we are ALWAYS on mission.
Don’t leave your mission at home the next time you venture out. Take it with you.
Love & light,
