Hurricane Irene: Faith and Trust

Two different takes: Hurricane Irene demonstrates how people live their lives.

When possible impending disasters hit the news people get to choose whether to focus on the horrible painful aftermath that MIGHT happen OR they can focus on dispelling the chances of that event happening with the  predicted severity.

What do you see in this video of Hurricane Irene? You likely see it attacking the East Coast of the US. How about if instead of focusing on how damaging it may be, you “see” it moving up north-east away from the coast, back into the Atlantic far from land?

Many groups around the world are doing just that now. Gregg Braden set up a room online for regularly scheduled worldwide focusing on  what we want to see in that situation. To participate click here. Individual focus works. Group focus works more powerfully.

I have a very personal take on this matter.

Both of my kids live in Manhattan and are in different Broadway shows. When hurricane Irene shut down Broadway for the weekend my daughter took the opportunity to visit a friend in the mountains in Pennsylvania–a request made for 6 years by her friend in the mountains.

So she and her boyfriend and the dog left the city—which seems like a wise choice and put this mom’s heart at rest. My daughter can see the river from her place. She lives right close by it.

My son and his wife do not believe the storm will be as violent as predicted. They remain in the city planning a cozy weekend at home. Okay, they live on the 8th floor and are about 3 blocks from the Hudson River which sits lower than the streets anyway.

My son is the one who taught me, ”If you can do something about the situation then do it. If not, why worry—it doesn’t help.”

Looking at both kids’ choices it appears that my daughter chose an action to leave town to be safe while my son trusts he is safe in town.

(Of course my daughter wanted the vacation out of the city anyway while her brother travels frequently all over the world playing music. He desires staying home this weekend)

Faith or trust?
Now here is an interesting piece.

A few years ago my daughter wanted to take a European vacation. At that time no one had ever gotten a leave from a Broadway show and then been allowed to come back (You only get out of contracts or leaves to do a better part). She followed her heart, asked for the leave—and set a new precedent.

Faith and Trust.

Her brother thought she was nuts to take such a chance. She had the faith he didn’t.

Looking back across my son’s life I see he always trusted that whatever he asked for would come to him—though sometimes he endured excruciatingly painful experiences to get where he belonged.

I recall feeling irritated with him for not looking for a summer job as his high school buddies did during the Spring. Well, come Summer and the phone inevitably rings – some dinner theater music director asking him to play the show or some orchestra asking him to play with them.

Always happened.

So when he chose to give up one scholarship to follow his heart—guess what, the other conservatory matched the offer. AND when he finally decided he wanted to play jazz and drums in New York City he gave up his previous dream and concert music to do what thousands of others do without success.

Understand that he never wished or hoped or visualized.

He took full out action to achieve the success he knows today. My daughter did the same thing when she moved to New York City to become a Broadway actress.

What have you done lately to show the Universe your faith and trust, something that probably seems scary as all get out?

      Hi Kominki. Thanks for your feedback. I think it is important to give back so I produce very many free items so people can see if my style works for them. I sell products ranging from $7 up to $5,000 for 1:1 in person work with me in a 5-day life-changing intensive. I find that people rarely make lasting life changes unless they actually invest in themselves. Making that investment sends a powerful message to their subconscious and to the Universe that they seriously want to change. Sure, some people do make huge changes without investing but that result happens very rarely.
      what you see in th sidebar are some of my books and CDs. am creating a page of all my products so people can find what they are looking for now.
