I Never Was in Control Anyway!

The situation we find ourselves in with the Coronavirus is causing me a feeling of confusion more than anything else. My life feels in essence quite easy as we have lived quite an isolated existence since we discovered that me and my son have visual processing issues. We had just completed the neutralisation of all colours and patterns in our house and got into a nice simple routine of daily living and celebrating the small things. Life was good but a little bit of me felt that it was wrong in some way for my life to be easy.

Now, the world has gone upside-down and everything has changed. I am thinking ‘What can I do?’ How can I help?’ and feeling pretty helpless. The funny thing is that in many ways I don’t feel any more helpless than I have done for years. I have been feeling helpless about all sorts of the things like just how much people live on their phones and don’t really interact and more, as an example. This is because my helpless feeling comes from a sense that there is a deep lack of soulfulness in the world.

So now I feel confused because my head is saying ‘Do something!’ and my heart is whimpering ‘But I have been doing so much for years and I am still doing it.’ I mean I get up every day and ask God what I should do. I get up every day and wonder why some specific thing has popped into my head or why I am suddenly feeling a certain way. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to live like this – that I wanted to give up my own plans in favour of finding something else – the very thing that I should be finding in every moment of every day.

So what can I do at a time like this? Only continue to talk to God and continue my life of not being in control. This is the best gift I have.

A Message From God’s Heart!

A Message from God’s Heart

Q  What is it you want to show me?

A  I want to show you about the great wonder of having a personal relationship with me.

Q  And how do we do that?

A  Simply by knowing that I’m here, ready and willing to commune with you.

Q  And what do we do?

A  Talk to me.  Share your troubles and your joys, your doubts and fears, your hopes,dreams, ambitions, ask me anything you want to know.

Q  And will you answer?

A  Of course I will answer, in any way you believe that I can answer – through your dreams, through things people say, books, writings, nature, a voice in your head, synchronicity in your life, opportunities that open up, doors that open and close and more . . .

Q  And could we just say that this is the universe speaking, or light or love?

A  You could, but isn’t that an impersonal way of looking at relationship with me, the great Mystery, the Divine?  If you find your breakfast on the table in the morning aren’t you delighted that someone laid that out for you?  Or do you say “Good, the universe provided again!” Doesn’t it give you a warmer feeling to know that a person with feelings lovingly laid that breakfast for you?

Q  So you want us to depend on you like a child depends on their parent?

A  Yes.  I didn’t create you for self-sufficiency but for relationship.  I didn’t put all the answers in books, or in angel cards, or what you call your Higher Self or even in the Bible.  They are hidden in me the great Mystery and because you and I are one, I will reveal them to you as and when I know the time is right.  Our relationship is one of co-operation – a dance if you like, a banter, a dialogue – and between us we will unfold the greatness that I have put in your heart.

Hearing God’s Voice

The best way to illustrate how I hear God’s voice is by giving some examples of the journeys that I go on with God – funny little journeys with big out-comes.

This particular journey took place a few years ago when I saw a picture in my head of a reservoir about 5 miles from where I live.  I had only visited it once and it hadn’t become a favourite place.  However on that day I felt this strange pull to visit it again so I dragged my husband, Richard and my 4 year old son out for a walk!  On arriving, what first occurred to me was that it was a good place for thinking.  Simply following the marked paths and feeling the calm of the water was quite therapeutic especially as I had some big thoughts going on in my head that I wanted to share with Richard.  As our walk continued we came to a sort of jetty that was like a narrow closed-in walk-way leading to a hide out by the water’s edge.  I don’t like tunnels or motion but felt drawn through this tunnel to the small square box-like hide sitting over the water.  It wasn’t really moving but as I looked out over the reservoir and saw the water rippling by, I really felt like I was on a boat.   Finding myself doing something strange but feeling I had to be there, I put my antennae up and talked to God. Our conversation went something like this:-

“OK, God what I am doing here?”

“Facing a fear.”

“What of . . . motion, boats . . ?“

“Movement.  You need to face your fear of movement.  You get so scared when you have a dream, something big and you see it unfolding before you, expanding, and then you don’t want to move. Jennie I want you to move, to run with your dream. I want you to face your fear of losing control.  I want you to let go.”

Hearing these words made me curious about my fear.  I tried looking out at the rippling water from different sides of the hide.  I looked at the information on the walls about the birds we might see and then my eye caught sight of something big moving in the water.  It was the biggest fish I’ve ever seen actually swimming and it was going surprisingly fast, heading straight for the hide.  Part of me became entranced by this fish but just in a corner of my mind was my fear, and the thought that watching it was making me feel slightly dizzy and I didn’t like it.  Quite suddenly I decided that enough was enough and I wanted to go now. I moved quickly through the tunnel and back onto what I thought was dry land!  I was happy again but I was changed.  A little bit of the fear had gone.
