One day I visited my mentor in the hospital.
I was pregnant with my second child and was struggling with financial fear due to and preterm labor and lost income.
My mentor was disabled without income due to emergency surgery. She had faced a unknown illness for a number of days and almost died waiting for a solution.
I felt visiting her would help me get out of my problems for a while.
I was stunned when I talked with her.
She was joyful despite her situation….
Uncomfortable asking for help
Coming to terms that possibly her current struggle was helping her face her discomfort with asking for help because she was too self reliant
I wanted that…to be joyful despite my situation
She told me she believed that you could be in the eye of the storm yet feel peaceful
I wanted that
I began to see how I could be grateful, joyful and ask for help more myself
I certainly was facing an easier situation than her with greater fear
I found perspective
She suggested I treat myself as I would a best friend who was going through a difficult time instead of how I was currently treating myself
I couldn’t imagine that at the time
I wanted that
It has been approximately 16 years since that day
I currently feel quite a storm around me now
I feel peaceful
I feel joy
I feel the path of Love below my feet even though fear is breathing right next to me
It is not my fear
It is not my choice
It is on the Outside of my center with no way in
I am in the Eye of the Storm where I will stay calm, connected and above the drama
I will continue to Ask for help to stay here
My Angels and Light Being Guides surround me
I feel unconditional love for those in the storm
I feel Divine Empathy but not sympathy
I feel immense gratitude for all the storms I have endured because they have taught me and strengthened me
I am grateful for all that have taught me and shown me how to heal from each storm and how to learn from each experience
My Light burns Brighter for All
I feel the purpose of storms and challenges today
I trust Life
I feel love and peace
That is Heaven on Earth to me
