Getting In Touch With Woo Woo
By saying Woo Woo, I mean my spiritual side, which by the way, pre marriage ending, I had pretty much zero of. Zero of that I acknowledged then anyway. I’d always known and said to myself that ‘things happen for a reason and they always worked out as they should’. I’d had a passion for personal development but that kinda took a side step when I got involved with my ex. That is as far as my woo woo side existed. A few of my close friends and by that I do mean exactly 2, were into meditation and crystals. What the, I used to think. I had one other gorgeous acquaintance that did energy healing, again, what the. Then one other lady I had been following who was an online success was quite into woo woo and manifesting. That was my extent with woo woo.
One very dark and stormy (emotionally) day, I was curled up in bed at my parents in the McLaren Vale, having a bit of a break from reality as my marriage had just ended, I sent a text to this gorgeous acquaintance asking for some guidance. Honestly, I don’t know why, at this moment that I am writing (3am in my tent at Walkerville with my 2 tiny peeps sound asleep) I cant even recall why I had her phone number. But I sent this text, with words like this, Hi Nicole, I am reaching out to you because my marriage has just ended and I feel like I am falling further apart inside and I just don’t know what to do. I am not good at asking for help but I really could do with some guidance right now. Love Renee.
What came back was completely unexpected and I got a bit of a shock. The essence of the text was ‘be GRATEFUL and I will send out some prayers for you, but ask for guidance from source’. Words to that effect.
What the! I had no idea what that even meant. Apart from the obvious but what does being grateful have to do with anything right now?? I sat there and thought about it. Ok, let’s give this gratitude thing a go. From then on, each night before I went to bed I would write in my journal 3 things that I was grateful for that day. For the last 2 ½ years this has been how I end 99% of my days. It changed my world.
I was grateful for:
The marriage that I did have for it served a purpose.
The amazing children we created
Sunrise, I love seeing the sunrise
Sass & Bide
The lessons learnt from the end of my marriage
The list is endless and when you allow this practice into your life, it changes your world for the greater good (i.e. getting off my anti-anxiety medication). That was my introduction to woo woo. I also now meditate twice a day, I have some crystals on my window sill and only wear essential oils and much much more woo woo. My spiritual side and my intuition is how I now base most of my decisions in personal and business life and it is always right. I am still a firm believer that everything does happen for a reason and what ever will be, will be, Que Sera Sera (the first tattoo I got on my foot!).
