What I needed to hear…


I’ve just read an article that says tonight, April 25th, 2013, the Universe will be presenting a “Pink Full Moon Lunar Eclipse”.

Now, I have to admit I’d never heard of a pink moon, and I sort of got excited about it since I love the color pink and I’m very fond of the moon and what could be better than a pink full moon eclipse? ๐Ÿ™‚

The astrologers say that lunar eclipses often cause pressure, strong emotions, and monumental endings and beginnings. Whether or not that is your experience, reading about it today brought up some memories of a specific ending and beginning in my life. Remembering this difficult time in my life brings me to the point I want to drive home for you today.

Years ago when I was waiting for my divorce to be finalized, I experienced a real “dark night of the soul” type of week (or maybe a month, or two). Things just kept dragging on and on and I felt like everything was totally out of my control. I just wanted the divorce to be final, the long frustrating process to be OVER. Yet, one circumstance after another kept delaying it.

Every time I felt like I was a little stronger and a little more grounded, like I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel, something else would happen to dim that light and make the tunnel seem like it would stretch on forever.

One evening in particular I remember feeling confused, angry, worried, sad and frustrated. I hate to say it, but I felt hopeless.

And then I had a conversation with my coach, a conversation I will always remember.

After pouring my heart out to her she asked me a very simple question. She said, “Cindie, what could I say to you right now that would make things better?”


And then I finally answered, “I guess I just need someone to tell me that everything is going to be alright.”

And then, she said, “Cindie, everything is going to be alright.”

Doesn’t that sound amazingly simple? Maybe even trite.

And yet it was the most powerful thing she could have said to me that evening. Because it was exactly what I needed to hear. And you know what? It was true.

Everything really did turn out alright. And looking back over my entire life I can see that everything ALWAYS turns out alright.

And that’s the one point I want to drive home to you, for you, today. Whatever you are going through right now, whatever loss, whatever struggle, whatever confusion, whatever ending or new beginning…everything is going to be alright.

Hang in there, take a deep breath, get some rest, do something special and kind for yourself, and choose to believe this one fact.

Because it’s true. You are loved.

And everything really is going to be alright.

Love and Magic,

      Thank you so much for reading, and for your kind words. The perspective that “all these things are happening for my benefit” is a very high energy way of thinking. So wonderful to know that this is your viewpoint! I expect you to climb higher and higher, too. Namaste ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cindie I gained so much respect for you in the way you held your head high when you walked through the difficult times of your divorce. I see now a woman of great character, a positive attitude and it looks like a pretty good business woman also. I always wanted to tell you that but have never had the chance.
    P.S. I really enjoy reading your posts. You are an excellent writer. Randy
