Yes the weather is warm, in much of the United States, and indeed the world, and yes, there is global warming, but that is not what I am referring to, exactly. That is more of a metaphor for what is going on for many of us personally right now. As I look around there are many who are in the mix. Who are feeling like Bugs Bunny being invited over for dinner by the great hunter and his nemesis Elmer Fudd. Bugs thinks he is being invited as a guest, he gets in the nice big warm tub, with carrots to munch on as Elmer is chopping furiously and turning the heat up under his "tub", Bugs begins to feel uncomfortable in the heat, realizing his new friend is not having him over for dinner, but wanting to have him FOR dinner. Of course, Bugs gets away, he always does. Much the same is true of this these times. The heat is getting turned up. In any of those places where we still have shifting and growth to do (in Bugs case, he is too trusting) we are getting motivation to do move, grow evolve, to walk our talk, and to be aligned with our purpose. So keep paying attention. If you are feeling the heat getting turned up, look for the cause. What aspect of you is being brought into alignment with where the rest of your being is residing? Do whatever it is you need to do to get out of the pot, to turn off the stove and walk away from the source of the discomfort.
Just like Bugs, we'll get through this. But here's the thing. Did Bugs get down on himself? Did Bugs beat himself up for trusting Elmer, even as he realized the pickle he was in? Did Bugs begin to doubt his greatness? At any time in the process? NO! Of course not, and neither should we. That merely interferes with our greatness and our ability to get out of the pot! We are here to learn, and if the heat is getting turned up, it is an indicator that here is just one more place we have learning, stretching and growing to do. An area where we are out of alignment with our Divine Purpose. The heat is the refining fire. This is not a time to judge ourselves, this is a time to love ourselves through this. This is probably the greatest challenge as you are moving through these times, if you feel "it getting hot in here", take a deep breath and remember, "What would Bugs Bunny do?" Get the heck out of dodge, and get on with his life. Even as we watched Bugs, did we think he was being stupid? Did we judge him for being trusting? Were we mad at him for being in the pot? No! We were loving him and rooting for him. As we all can be supporting, loving and rooting for ourselves, our friends and loved ones as they move through these sometimes challenging times.
The next step when you can see the heat is getting turned off, when you are seeing your way clear to get out of the pot, is to be thankful! Filled with gratitude for this course correction, and for the gifts it is bringing into your life. To have gratitude for all the blessings which have been showered upon you and which are about to be! This gratitude acts as the grease to make the process move more quickly.
Sending you off, to find a fan, get cooled off and get out of the pot!! With Love and Blessings! Love one another and yourself! Kim
