There are people who don’t believe in the principle of resting, relaxing and receiving.
I used to be one of those people.
Between age 13 and 43 I only had one gear, and that was top speed.
Everything had to happen fast, so I could cram as much in the day as possible.
I had forgotten that I was a human being and turned into a human doing.
The only times that time stood still was when I sat down to breastfeed my babies.
Thankfully I had a lot of babies, six in all, and I loved the whole process of mothering, so I had a lot of breastfeeding-down-time between age 19 and 34, which probably prepared me for what was to come.
At age 43 I got hit by a truck.
My life came to a shocking standstill.
I had to completely let go of the reigns and surrender to the journey of recovering what was lost.
Everything relied on the principles of Rest, Relax so I could Receive Miracles.
I needed 3 big miracles.
- The miracle of staying alive, and after that, regaining full use of my body.
- The miracle of avoiding bankruptcy.
Pete had just quit his nursing career to join me fulltime in the clinic.
We had just taken out a second mortgage to buy and renovate the Purple House.
We had six children between age 12 and 24, who were in varying stages of dependency.
- The miracle of my children being OK with or without a healthy fit mum.
At the time, I didn’t realize that REST, RELAX and RECEIVE is a principle for living.
For creating a wonderful, fulfilling life.
But, I knew that if I resisted or struggled against this principle, I would die.
My principles had been RUSH, HUSTLE, WORK HARDER, OVERCOME the STRUGGLE, so I can ACHIEVE.
Admittedly, I had achieved a lot, but it had been done it by completely overextending myself.
RECEIVING wasn’t in my dictionary.
I am sure the Universe had been trying to tell me to slow down many times.
Have you heard of the saying: feather, brick, truck?
I must have overlooked the feathers, taken the bricks in my stride (we had a series of car accidents before I got hit by the truck) until the Universe had no other option but to hit me with the truck.
To cut a long story short: I did receive my miracles.
My body did what it’s programmed to do.
I grew a completely new sacrum, and even my paralysed spinal nerves recovered and I was able to do away with the colostomy bag and catheter after a few years.
All the other injuries healed as well.
We didn’t go bankrupt and our business grew from strength to strength.
My children are all wonderful caring human beings.
(I have written a Trilogy about my life, and my books are available at the Purple House OR on Amazon)
But sometimes Pete and I need a reminder to rest, relax and receive.
A few weeks ago we had a day full of reminders.
First of all, a tree crashed down on the other side of the Forth river, just when Pete and I were talking.
I guess that might have been a feather-like sign, because there are no random occurrences in our Universe.
We didn’t listen though.
Later that evening, it was dark and cold, we were tired, and wanted to go to bed but we ignored our tiredness and kept pushing through because we had organised a fare-well party for Caleb and Rosie, as they were going to Canada, and we didn’t want to be party poopers.
Pete and I took off in our car to collect something from our house, when Pete backed the vehicle really hard into an old gum tree that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. (It had only been there for the last hundred years)
The back of my car was completely smashed, and it happened for absolutely no reason other than that we had been too busy and been ignoring the principle of REST, RELAX and RECEIVE.
If you don’t rest, relax and receive, the Universe is going to take!
Now, you might wonder, how does this relate to healing?
How do we heal our life?
One thing I know for sure is that we don’t heal when we are struggling.
I often see people struggling.
Everyone seems to be caught up in struggles.
It’s as if we are addicted to it.
But, if we want to heal and receive a miracle, we must STOP.
We have to choose a different way.
Nature only works when a situation is relaxed, and nature takes its time.
If you are struggling, rushing, and stressing out, your body is unable to heal.
This is why medication is so handy.
You don’t have to stop; you can just keep going.
The medication will take care of everything.
This is what we have been led to believe.
Yet, most people would prefer to avoid medication or surgery.
Nobody likes to be dependant to drugs or medicine.
Now, I am not saying stop taking your medication, I am providing you with a different option that you may not have known about, which allows you to heal more naturally.
I explain more about this in this video, so take 20 minutes out of your day to rest, relax and receive as you tune in!
Are you ready for a miracle shift in your life?
Alternatively, book in for a series of sessions with me; appointments can be done in person, OR via zoom/phone.
Many of my clients have completely turned their life around and they are accomplishing more by doing less and they are still going from strength to strength today.
Work with me to open the flow of miracles.
Or be entertained by my books, You are the Miracle! How being hit by a truck saved my life, The Underbelly and the third book; Alchemy of Love which was release a few weeks ago to complete my trilogy.
All my books are available from Purple House or Online books stores such as Amazon.
