This story was inspired by the recent hurricane in North Carolina.
I don't listen to the news as a rule. It's full of negativity, in a one-sided story of a world that is scary and dangerous. It doesn't calibrate high, as far as truth and consciousness goes. I choose to live a life of happiness and joy, so the news is not something I plug into. I decide my environment and what's real in my world. I decide my state of being.
So a rumor goes around that a hurricane is coming. I live in a small town called Bolivia, 15 minutes from the ocean. I hear rumors that it could be a category 4, which sounds terribly scary. I tune in to the hurricane in my mind to get the facts. My feeling was that this hurricane was not going to be a category 4. It would be quite mild, not what they were reporting. I wished and hoped that the hurricane would dissolve and dissipate in the ocean before it ever got to land, but that didn't happen.
My friends and I stayed pretty calm most of the time until the very last opportunity for us to bounce. I felt a peace about it, which confused Jeff because he's hearing what the world is chatting about. For instance, he said if the power goes out, it could be a month before we get it back on. He was so nervous, so just to be on the safe side, he got us a hotel an hour and 40 minutes away from our house for shelter. We didn't have to use the hotel, but it was a backup plan if we chickened out and felt that being in our home was unsafe.
A few days before the hurricane, I locked myself in my bedroom and I pleaded with God for some answers about this storm. If I were to be misled and misguided by my own intuition and this really is a category 4, and I am delusional, we could be in a lot of trouble. My big concern was the structure of the house being damaged by flying objects or a tree falling on it. I didn't know what to pack. I didn't know what to preserve. I didn't want to have my walk-in closet scattered all over the street. I didn't want to come home to my jewelry all over the place in mock. People around me were evacuating. I was really in a tizzy because my thought process was, that I'm not going to die anytime soon and although I don't need these items, my life is a lot more pleasant and enjoyable having them. I would prefer to have them. I don't need a lesson in removing items from my life to learn about what's really valuable here.
So I close the door and I asked God to level with me, " Is my home going to be destroyed? What do I need to leave? What's the deal?". I connected to what I heard was called 'The Galactic Council' in my mind. They told me everything would be fine. I could go to the hotel or not- it made no real difference, it was a personal choice. They also told me that the power would go out at 4:23 p.m. on Friday and it would be off for 3 days, going back on Monday. When I told this to Jeff, he laughed and told me it would be about a month. If I was right, he was going to put a big tattoo on his forehead. I asked 'The Council' for confirmation about this. I needed a sign that I wasn't making this up.
They showed me a red bug like a ladybug. I thought, 'Great, I'll see the lady bug today- either on TV or something, and then I'll know that I've heard correctly. Well, it never happened. When the time came to decide whether to stay and enjoy the storm, I chickened out and we packed up and got the hell out of here! A little gust of wind came through and it scared the crap out of me. I didn't want to tree to fall on the house while I was sleeping or watching TV. So we get to the hotel and everything is fine. Keep in mind, I had family members, patients, and friends contacting me to check on us the whole week. I have two Facebook accounts and they're contacting me on Messenger, texting, emails, "Are you okay?Are you safe? Be safe!"…..
I had so much concern because people are listening to these weather reports. They are not in it to fully grasp what the truth was. As a side note, this happens a lot with people who are diagnosed with cancer. Too many family members interject and people feel that they have to listen to their family members more than their own intuition. They make decisions based on what the family wants, not on what they truly feel. I'd like to encourage you that when you're faced with something perceivably life-threatening, that you trust your gut.
Friday morning, Jeff tells me that our security camera had caught the last bit of footage at 4:32 a.m. of our house. We can assume that the power went out around that time. What I had interpreted was slightly off, as I confuse the two and the three and confuse the p.m. in the a.m. I call that small beans! Now the storm has taken the power at the hotel!
We have to check out on Saturday morning. I asked 'The Council' again, would we make it back okay because there were rumors that we wouldn't even get back? There would be roads blocked off, trees in the way, and flooding. They said, 'This path will be fine and you can leave at your leisure. So I did. We left and drove and had no risk at all!
We got home and saw that the structure of the house was indeed fine. My cats were okay. Everything was fine. The second night, we stayed in the house, with no AC, no electricity, and we're grilling on our front porch, I see a praying mantis in the vines. Then it goes up really high up the vine and falls down on the vine. I'm taking pictures of it and notice a ladybug next to it! I showed Jeff-This is the sign! I said if I'm right, our electric is going on tomorrow morning by 9 a.m.! He chuckles. The next morning, I hear some gurgling in the toilet and I hear the microwave flashing. Sure enough, I look and it's 8:32 in the morning and we have our electricity back on!
In summary, I now have faith in 'The Galactic Council' who I'll be consulting for future weather issues as I do not trust the weathermen. I do not trust the news and rumors. I felt all along that in my intuition, we would be okay. I'm ecstatic to connect with this energy moving forward as this was a test of trust. And No-Jeff didn't get a tattoo on his forehead!
