It never ceases to amaze me the way spirit operates. Take for instance my trip to Hawaii. I was asked by a resident of Hawaii, a client I have known for 9 years, if I would go and do some work there. Now, I ask you, who would turn that opportunity down? This person had been the personal assistant for a number of years for a very famous new age person, and she offered to assist me in getting work and helping me with public events I would hold. It seemed perfect. The opportunity came early in 2004, so I had a lot of time to plan and communicate what I would do.
At the same time, I had been communicating with someone who wanted private tuition on the Master’s course, but who kept shying away from actually doing the course. I could feel his hesitation, but knowing the Master’s edict that I was never to persuade anyone to do the course, I could not do anything. This person had to come to the course under their own steam without any persuasion from me in any way. I also knew that when he had done the course, this person had an incredible destiny in the public arena, his Self knew this and was frightened of it, hence the hesitation in doing the course.
Plans went into place for Hawaii – a show, an evening with Maitreya and a workshop. Advertising was discussed and arranged. I was so looking forward to going and doing my work. The only problem we had was in getting a local number for people to call. We finally decided to use a cell phone number. However, it was not a local number but one from the mainland of the US. There was concern whether people would call that number. We also set up a web site separate to the one for Maitreya, so that people could communicate through that. Meanwhile, my potential student had finally decided to do the Beginner’s course on the mainland of the US, but wanted also to do the Advanced course as soon as he could. I had no time except the first week in Hawaii available. I knew this would mean I would be very tired, but I knew how important it was to teach this person with where he had to go with his future.
Two weeks before my visit to Hawaii, I was informed that inquiries were very few. I was not disturbed; I had learned to go with spirit and not to worry. I knew there was a reason for this situation. On our arrival in Hawaii, there were still very few inquiries about the events and readings. Again, I knew there was a reason behind it. By now I had arranged for the student to come to Hawaii to do the course he wished to do. It was wonderful teaching him, but boy, at the end of it I was exhausted. I could see now, why I did not have any work the following week. I was still exhausted three days after he left to go home. I was so pleased I had no work!!
All of this time, so many inquiries came into the web site regarding my trip to England and the channeling course in Amsterdam. I knew it was not me that was the problem. I knew because of my exhaustion I could not have worked had I wanted to. Work had been cancelled because the student had decided he needed to do the study, and he was more important to spirit than the public at this time. This student after his course was able to connect with the person he is to work with in the future, and spirit’s plan is on its way! Was my ego hurt because I was not able to do the work originally planned? Yes it was, but I also have the Higher Self there which knew the bigger picture. The ego hurt did not last long once the Higher Self could see the bigger picture.
Spirit changes things all the time. It has to, because we change, and those we work with change. When we get the ego out of the way, we can see the bigger picture. I am glad I did.
