Last night I woke up at 3 A.M. my mind filled with fear. My fear was about Hurricane Irma and her visiting here. I decided to stop using the word hit, visit is less ominous. I realized my attitude of fear was affecting me and the animals in my care. I was not being a strong leader for them.
Fear wants to control. It wants to dictate and have things be it’s way. The fear did not like the idea that it could not control being touched by Irma. I began to see this as a lesson in surrender to the higher. The higher attitude is; be aware of what is going on, take actions to prepare and keep my attitude accepting of what is. When I did these things I felt calmer and I could see the animals were calmer.
As things happen I am learning to ask what does this have to teach me? Rather then get caught up in the fear and drama. What is there to learn about seeing things from a different point of view then I normally do. Being aware how I am and how it affects everything around me. If I get on the doom and gloom kick and place a lot of negative attention on Irma then I am contributing to the disturbance of her. I am connected to everything around me. Being higher or lower ripples out and it especially ripples out to the animals. They do not understand my upset, all they know is the human is upset and they think they did something wrong.
There are people and animals facing much worse south of here, so I told my fear to get over itself.
What a time to be on Earth. I am being given the opportunity to be more then I ever thought I could be. There are bumps and the bumps are gifts to evolve and grow. Wow.
