As I was leaving my home today to catch my morning Firm Parts class, my knapsack strap got caught in the spring of our house’s outside door. My first response was to tug at the strap. However, no matter how much I pulled and also played with the angle of the door to free the knapsack, it stayed stuck. As a Capricorn, I pride myself on being efficient. And with no extra prep-and-travel time to spare, I knew that the answer about what to do with my stubborn knapsack was already there. I had visions of climber Aron Ralston, who literally got stuck between a rock and a hard place while hiking at Utah’s Bluejohn Canyon in 2004… and had to saw off his arm off to free himself. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have lived to share his heroic story. Okay, Drama Queen aside, if worse came to worse, I could always cut off the end of the strap. This may sound silly but… because the knapsack is NEW, I wasn’t springing for that solution.
Then I remembered this: that space was required for my knapsack to get lodged into the door. Add to this the fact that, if the available space in the spring was what caused the problem, then it could also be part of the solution. So, I created space within myself by surrendering to the situation and trusting that I would get to my class on time. Once I did this, the door spring released the knapsack from its grip! Go figure, huh. Bottom line is, solving problems and moving towards prosperity isn’t best achieved by “figuring it out”: from the “logical egomind”1. Instead, it’s about using your intuition: a more “holographic, direct, inspired way of knowing”1.
Who would have known that a knapsack could teach you a thing or two about prosperity? Check it out…
Forcing vs. Letting Go: When you put your question out to the Universe, the answer will arrive just in time — as long as you believe and trust that it will. This is about letting go of your need to be right, smart, efficient, or whatever adjective best describes what keeps you stuck. How? By allowing your self to, not-think, not-know and not-do.
Rigid vs. Relaxed: Guess what prosperity is attracted to: you being rigid or relaxed? On a more human level, would you prefer to make love with someone who’s relaxed or rigid (*smile*)? When you’re relaxed, there’s ease in your thoughts, feelings and actions — and prosperity consequently flows more easily to you.
Present vs. Future or Past: Prosperity happens in the now… present. As Penny Peirce succinctly states: “To attract answers” (and move towards prosperity), “you must first get in touch with, and experience fully, the feeling of need, desire and incompleteness. You must want a response so badly you can taste it. This creates the energetic magnet”, and I would add… for prosperity to be attracted to you.
There’s a happy ending to this story. Not only did my knapsack escape unharmed, when I returned from my class, I received an invitation to partner with someone very high profile that I was desiring to work with. Woohoo! So, the prosperity adventure continues. Now, how is yours going?
