I can see All Obstacles Fall away….
It’s gonna be a bright bright Sunshiny day!
This variation of the Johnny Nash song “I can See Clearly Now” has been running through my head all day.
“Why?” You ask.
This morning as I was driving my daughter to school, I was acutely aware of how difficult it was to see out my rear window. The combination of frost and salt was clearly a factor but this seemed worse than usual and I was distracted by it more than seemed reasonable.
Then as I slowed down to turn into my driveway, there was a sudden popping sound and I watched through my rear view mirror as my entire back car window shattered into a thousand pieces in a matter of seconds. I was stunned and at the same time acutely aware that I could suddenly see with more clarity than I had ever seen through a back window before! The sky was an incredible blue. The sun was shining bright! When I began my morning meditation, it was clear to me the fog that had been so present over the past few weeks was suddenly gone and there is now a deeper level of clarity.
Many people have been expressing feelings of fog and difficulty focusing over the past few weeks since 2013 began.
I have been enjoying the energies of this new year. I have however noticed that some areas of my life have seemed suspended.
I am used to having clarity on ALL the little details in my life. Lately there have been areas that while I am sure are unfolding with perfection, I have not been able to see what is ahead… Surrender has been the word.
Something lifted this morning. I feel it… and apparently my window did as well. Sometimes we do not recognize the obstacles in front of us until they fall away. AND sometimes the obstacles in front of us are there to support us on our journey …a car window is very supportive, especially when the temperature is below zero!
I asked my Spirit guides about the symbolism of the rear window being a view of the past… and their answer was “Well it wasn’t safe to break your front windshield, was it?”
I appreciate their consideration!
However, I feel that perhaps this message is also about the clarity of my journey leading to this point. This is the moment in time when I can look back at ALL that has happened in my past and really say… I am HERE and ALL was bright and perfect because it led me to THIS moment in TIME!
What are some of the “obstacles” from your past that you can now look back on to see that they actually supported you on your journey?
