In response to “If You Wanna Play House, You’re Gonna Clean House”, here’s Grace’s Guiding Lesson:
Eve, I took a little longer to pray for what was an unexpected and unwanted surprise you had the other day with Magdalena! I’m sure this was not the “action” you were looking to have in your bedroom. Who does? And so I found myself in deeper meditation and prayer.
Anyway, I was glad to see how real, honest and thoughtful you were with Magdalena. You didn’t hold back your emotions or your thoughts. You claimed your voice, power and respect as a woman, which is not easy to do in this type of situation. I’m sure many would have wanted to throw her out and call her every horrible name in the book.
Eve, are you aware of this incredible gift you have? It’s the gift to integrate your thoughts and feelings quickly so you can respond versus react. There is no need to categorize this as bad or good. It is art… live art. I believe this is one of the greatest forms of art: the ability to relate to one another, in good or bad circumstances, and still remain in relationship with the other. This may not be acknowledged as art, but it is. It is the dance of minds, hearts, souls and bodies. When you look back you can probably see the vibrant colors of your emotions flow through your words and body language. It would be a scene that has a lot to teach you about yourself, just like any great work of art does.
The best advice I can give you is to stay as true and real to whom you are. Let your thoughts and feelings be like notes on a page. The best music is when the writer becomes one with the composition. They no longer are the composer, but have become the music that flows and evokes others to connect and respond with their song.
So take a moment and just reflect on what occurred. Bless this moment. Acknowledge all your feelings, thoughts and responses. And finally, take the lessons, the gifts, the art you discovered and share it with others who are broken. So remember, take, bless, break and share.
Well, since Magdalena cleaned your house, want to share a glass of Merlot?
