Last Friday our hot water system broke. Strangely I only realised when hubby got home and in the shower he called out “Hey Miri, what’s happened to all the hot water?”
Seems that the universe is at play again. Or is everything just reaching it’s use by date? Less than two months ago our air conditioner broke down and had to be replaced. At the same time our ceiling fan stopped working and now this. Earlier in the year it was cracks in the walls, termites in the ceiling. I can’t help but feel it’s all somehow symbolic.
For the past week since I made a heart wrenching decision I’d been feeling bone weary. Although I thought I’d moved on I’ve been carrying pain. And crying buckets of tears.
I’m a big believer in the energy of our lives affecting our environment. I know that water symbolises emotion and the classic cause and effect is grief. I’ve been fighting the old and grieving over a loss.
But last Friday something happened. That morning I had an email from a new blogger connection that spiraled me into action. I made a phone call and had a heart felt and raw conversation about a situation that’s been tormenting me all week. Afterwards it felt like a burden had been lifted.
So when the hot water system blew I wasn’t surprised. I swear something was in the air. The energy felt different. Was it coincidence that after I shared my anguish and felt I could move on, things started changing?
I received an email from an Editor who I’d been waiting to hear from. And a text from my Freelance Copy writing boss who I hadn’t heard from for ages.
Life was moving again. I felt as though my tread was lighter. The sun seemed brighter.
I read somewhere that sudden leaks or pipe breaks can be a type of “clean up” where the house literally breaks at the weakest links. Maybe once it’s been fixed or replaced it has a stronger hold on the good energy for the future.
So tomorrow we’re getting a new hot water system. It’s lasted nearly 18 years so it’s served us well. And it feels somehow symbolic to be replaced now. When so many other changes are happening. Hubby reckons it’s just passed it’s use by date. I’m not so sure.
I personally feel there’s a connection to something bigger. So many laws in the universe we can’t explain. And our home holds the key to so many emotions. It’s important to keep the foundations strong and the water flowing freely. Let’s keep repairing by love.
It’s time to start inviting more positive energy into my home. So this week I’m going to:
- Free up clutter to invite more positive energy around me.
- Open up all the windows (even if it’s cold) to invite fresh air in.
- Light my aromatherapy candles.
- Meditate more
- And think positive thoughts.
And I will relish flowing hot water again!
As we swim through this sea of energy of life I wish you all light, love and happiness as we continue the journey.
