It is incredible how the Universe plays with us, and this is my story for this week:
I have always been a kind person (so I think!) and together with gratitude everyday I also practice kindness. I like to be kind and generous to people. I always did and I do it great pleasure and waited nothing in return. That´s why I so well identify myself with the Giving and Receiving card. Fits me as a glove.So, one of my PPN´s is actually “Helping Others”. My DMP plan for “helping others” was to set up my own Coaching business, but I guess the Universe has other plans for me..at least for now.
I am writing this post a few weeks later, because of the sudden changes in my life I did not have time not the mindset to share my week. So, let me try put it short as I feel very very unconformable writing this down because I do not want to use negative words and I don´t want to attract negativity (I am constantly applying the law of substitution…it has been a good exercise for that, though). So, just before Christmas my partner was given a “present”: a very difficult present to accept though. He learned that he would have to go through a delicate surgery and it would have to be done asap. It was a shock , it was Christmas, we had plans to go to visit family and we found ourselves stuck and alone, in Brussels “digesting” the news.
My partner was so distressed that I soon realised that I had an important mission: I have to help him!!! I have to help him with all my strength and I have to apply all I have learned so far in the MKMMA. The first person I thought about was my wonderful guide, Luc to whom I can not thank enough.
My partner is a computer scientist a very “down to earth” pragmatic person while I am a more spiritual person. I believe in meditation and I believe our mind has the power to change our reality. My partner is not so sure about all this (or he was not) but after the bad news I have managed to make him meditate and we even did it together. It was so good and it helped him so much in the acceptance process of his illness.
Since January 11 my days have been passed in and out of the hospital. Hospitals are those places where you can see acts of kindness and where you can practice kindness. This week I did both: I was the observer and I was an active player. I did see so much and I did give so much kindness. It was so incredibly amazing!
I, for some strange reason, “like” Hospitals. Actually what I like about hospitals is the work of the nurses and the volunteers. I admire them so much. When I came to live in Brussels I actually thought of enrolling at the nurse school…unfortunately I think now is too late…but I wish I had. Maybe my “helping others” as more to do with that.
So, this week and the coming weeks I will practice kindness and I will see kindness everywhere. The MKMMA Kindness week couldn´t have been more timing.
