A few years back I went to see a Tarot reader and while I was there, she told me that throughout my reading, she kept hearing the word Allow. Now I got pretty excited by this as I had been hearing the same message in my meditation for the previous two weeks so of course I shared this with her.
‘Well!’ she said.
‘Yes!’ I replied.
‘How interesting,’ she countered before nodding wisely.
I nodded wisely too. And for a moment I thought that I was about to have some kind of epiphany – and maybe I was - but the thing is, I never asked. I had no clue what Allow meant and I didn’t want to ask in case I was supposed to know. You know the way. Besides she seemed so happy with the whole situation that I didn’t want to let my ignorance get in the way. Which of course it did because it was several years before I finally gained an understanding of what the message meant.
Ignorance 1 – Me 0
Allowing is all about getting out of our own way. It’s about putting our trust in Spirit and allowing our lives to unfold instead of trying to force things to happen in the way we want them to. Or as one of my teachers once put it:
‘It is like you are riding a horse and trying to force it into one stable when the horse belongs in the next one and would happily lead you there if you would let it.’
He had a good point.
Over the next couple of months, we’ll be talking about Allowing both here on my website and on my Soul to Soul Partnership pages on Facebook and Instagram. Why not allow yourself to join in the conversation? 😉
