Welcome to the last week of August.
This month has really flown. This week I have two words for you to work on. They are Fear and Acceptance.
I have always had a fear of being stuck in a lift. In fact when I was married you would hardly get me into a lift. I remember being on holidays in Las Vegas and our apartment was on the 15th floor. Yeap! Every day I would make my way up and down via the stairs while my ex and daughter went by the lift.
I always thought it was a great way to avoid something I didn’t like as well as get exercise at the same time. I was in reality, just avoiding a fear.
Then, I moved to Sydney where I found nearly on a daily basis I needed to use a lift. So my fear of having to ride a lift soon vanished but got replaced with "what if I get stuck in a lift”.
Now remember what ever you fear ends up getting you at the end of the day.
When I moved to our new office space there was a lift from the car space to the office. Most of the time I would park out the front of the building but on this one occasion it was raining so I parked inside the basement and caught the lift to my office.
This particular day I worked late. I forgot that when you got into the lift you needed the security key to take you to the floor you wanted to be on. Anyway rushed out of the office into the lift, the doors closed then it was the day I had always dreaded.
I pushed the buttons to go down, nothing happened, I pushed the buttons to go up, nothing happened, I pushed the buttons to open the doors, nothing happened.
I was well and truly stuck. Yes, the little fear heart flutters started.
I looked for an alarm to contact the lift people to come get me out. Could not find the button. Then I thought I will phone my daughter she can sort it out. Picked up the mobile and went to dial only to realise I was out of battery. What a time to have no battery.
I then looked up and around and thought how much air do lifts have?
I was just standing there looking around occasionally trying the buttons but nothing was working.
Then I took a deep breath, and thought ACCEPTANCE and ALLOW. I am stuck here, accept the situation, relax you may be here for the night so take a seat on the floor and just ask the universe to fix the problem for you. By this time it was about 6.45pm so I am thinking the chances of getting out were slim until the morning.
So I made myself comfortable, got out a book and started to read and just enjoy the experience. Just after I settled into my book. The lift started to move.
I thought wow there is still someone in the building. I started to get up and gather my things – just then the doors opened and there stood a guy looking at me in a wondering way to what was I doing in this lift.
I quickly welcomed him in and told him the story. I said please do not leave me until I get out of this building with my car. He was so nice and walked me to my car and made sure I was safely out of the building.
Must admit I have not had a fear since as all you have to do is sit and wait and eventually the doors open.
Have a super week and remember what you fear soon catches up with you so face your fears head on. Always accept a situation for the moment you accept you can do something about it.
Most of all allow the universe to take care of any situation out of your control. The universe can always see a solution to any problem.
Best colours to combine when you need to face a few fears is purple and white.
We have a great purple and white soap combination to get you started. Email me if you want to know more.
