I’ve realized that I truly cannot be troubled by something without my own consent.
I wrote this sentence early this morning with a very different post in mind. This was prior to my bus back to NYC getting cancelled along with every other bus for the day. After learning this I ran as fast I could to buy an Amtrak ticket and ran to the train. Made it with 5 minutes to spare before it left. It was also on track 26, my birthday and favorite number. The train number is 88. And the time printed on my ticket is 11:11. Holy moly.
For those not familiar with angel numbers, 888 (2+6,88) brings an uplifting message of encouragement from your angels telling of achievements, success, striving forward, progress and attainment. It brings a message to stay optimistic and listen to your intuition and inner-guidance. Set solid foundations for yourself and your loved ones as this will ensure your future prosperity. The Universe and your angels will always support you, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you put in the appropriate work and effort when and where necessary. You are encouraged to live up to your full potential.
11:11 is a special message from your guardian angels indicating your ability to connect with the Ascended Masters in the angelic realm. It is your connection with the angelic realm, God, or Source Energy that determines your ability to manifest your desires and achieve your full potential.
It’s funny the way we have a thought before something happens and then forget about the message that came through in the midst of what seems like chaos. I’m so happy I wrote down this thought this morning because I opened up my notes and this was the message that popped up. It’s so synchronistic it makes me laugh because it validates the connections of this universe and my belief that there’s something more powerful at play than what is on the surface. I could’ve been bothered by this situation and let it take over me. I would’ve done that in the past because I didn’t think there was another way to deal with “inconveniences”. I thought that everything that happened without was out of my control and I made myself a victim of circumstance. I had so many issues. Once I owned the power of my internal environment most of the “issues” I’ve had for so long have dissipated.
I could be mad about my cancellation and the fact I had to pay $192 for a one way trip to New York when my bus ticket was $32. I could be annoyed or upset. And I was for a second. But I had a choice; either sit there complaining and lost and defeated and yell at the greyhound employee that told me that there was nothing he could do and I had to call greyhound to get my ticket refunded or run and make sure I took the right course of action to get home. I chose the latter
So instead I choose to look at the good in the situation: I’m actually getting home a few hours sooner than my bus was scheduled to arrive. I have a much more comfortable seat (currently all to myself). I’ve never taken a train outside of NY so it’s like a little unexpected adventure. I don’t have to worry about traffic or the floods on the roads causing issues. Lots of pluses.
Today, I was going to write about some past event but there’s no time except the present to apply the things I’ve learned. I chose to continually practice what I am sharing. Authenticity is my main priority. This is a very different mindset than one i had a few years ago. Through self-reflection and practicing what I’ve learned by digging into my deep-rooted beliefs – life became easier, reactions become responses, and I became much, much happier and healthier. One of the major beliefs I’ve been working on is that expectations that aren’t met are a huge disappointment and a problem. But these are only issues if I allow them to be and anything I face is solvable through digging deep and realizing there is immense value in every unmet expectation.
Getting to truly know myself and learning that I can let go of past habits that no longer serve me has mended the pieces that seemed to have been broken or shattered completely. When something happens that is unexpected it’s ok to feel whatever comes up but then I have to make a choice to change what I can, learn from what has happened, let go of what no longer serves me, and/or accept the situation as it is if there is no way to change it. Any other choice such as holding onto negative energy from the expectation being broken causes issues to remain around much longer than necessary which causes huge amounts of avoidable stress.
So thank you universe for cancelling my bus. (I’m literally serious). There’s so much to learn and I’m grateful for this lesson. And I’m grateful for being able to learn from it immediately instead of being angry for so long about it like I’ve done in the past. I know I’m on the right path. Oh and thanks for sending me 888 and 1111. I see you angels and guides, and I’m grateful for you looking out for me and showing me you’re here.
Love & light friends ✨
