Shifts, Breakdowns, and Chaos – Oh My! Part One

This fall has been extremely packed with lots of astrological events, eclipses, and an intense Mercury retrograde period.

Previously, I could feel the universal energies and still move through my day to day activities including meditation and reflection. Then everything began to unravel. It started innocently enough.

My cat Stella, got into the laundry closet and stepped on the dryer vent hose. Her claws punctured the hose and I had to call the repair man.

The repair man quickly cut the hose and reattached it. He suggested pushing the washer and dryer together so Stella could not fit in between them. Good idea!

repairman“Oh and Catherine,” he said, “would you like the door on the dryer switched, so you don’t have to go around the door to put clothes from the washer to the dryer?” Another good idea, that would make things easier.

That door had been on the wrong side for 4 years since, since we moved in. I might have noticed it at first, but then I became unconscious about it.

Thinking about my being unconscious, I asked the repair man if he could fix the doors to the laundry closet. Stella would bang on the closet door to open it. To solve that problem I had wrapped bungee cords around the door knobs.

Yes, he could fix the door. He could adjust the mechanism at the top of the door to fit better. What a wonderful job, he has I thought. He goes to your home and quickly and efficiently solves the situation.

“I wonder, how I can be more conscious of what is going on?” The universe quickly sent more lessons. But that is a story for later.

I do believe that the outer world reflects the inner world. I believe that changes you make in your outer environment affect your inner world. I believe that the way you do anything is the way you do everything. A habit pattern of behavior, action or thoughts ripples across everything in your life.

As you go about your day and week, ask yourself:

Where am I being unconscious? What have I overlooked? What are some simple solutions? Where am I rushing? Where am I procrastinating? Where could I use a new perspective?
