What is the clock all about? Several days ago on Facebook, I shared that a clock with a dead battery–has been dead for almost a year–all of a sudden started working without any human intervention. The clock sits on my desk in my office, and I see it without paying attention to it because I know it needs a new battery! Two days ago in a busy time when I was preparing to leave for meetings, I noticed that it appeared that the clock had exactly the right time. Curious? yes, but pressed for time, I paid it no further attention. And then yesterday I looked at it with intention, and it was moving, and it had the right time including my 3 minute buffer!
I gathered my thoughts within me, and then I called a friend familiar with how the Universe works even better than me. This was something to note she agreed!
Today, Tama Kieves in her daily wisdom wrote: “In yoga, the slower you move, the stronger you become. It’s true of major transitions, too. If you don’t rush into things, you build heat and an inner relationship with your self that can move through anything. The point of transition isn’t to get somewhere else. It’s to become someone else.”
And that is important to note! The clock was given to me in 2007 right as a major transition in my life starts as the financial planning industry began to see the Great Downturn begin, and it was a major financial downturn for all who were in the industry. The clock worked, and, yes, I replaced batteries until early 2017 when I knew it needed a battery but I was beginning to pack for my move to Oberlin! A lot had happened in those 10 years, but I had not truly made a transition, at least not yet.
Oberlin began a transition for me, and all of 2017 was a transition in so many ways. A major spiritual awakening occurred during the year, and in late December, it became apparent that I had made a major transition. It took 5 days of meditating and thinking it through, but I made changes that would move the transition in the direction I so wanted. Then the clock began to work…
The clock has been a physical manifestation of what the Universe can and will do when I am in synch with the Universe and regain my footing on the path of the mission I am on. But it also told me that I was doing what I am supposed to be doing at this time!
And I want to share this: if you are beginning a transition, go slow, take all the time you need. The signs will appear to let you know on the way and when you really are transitioning!
