The insight I am about to post was given to me from one of my guides during a massage treatment:
My client I was working with was expressing that the Government owed her money and each time she tried to cash the check it would be denied. Every person she confronted on this situation just sent her to another dead end, she was frustrated and had bills to pay.
As she spoke I was asking for help for her and my Guide said, "and this goes with the mind set of every individual blocking themselves from their truth for abundance, prosperity and energy expression. The block is simple and can be reversed, The lesson is not to focus on the outcome but to create the path to get there.
When you are against odds that create fear, confusion, frustration, lack of energy, it is at this time to ask for divine passage. Asking for help is a huge aspect of the Human self that is a challenge in itself, for some are stubborn in nature.
When we develope kindness to each other with humor or compliments during a connection we begin to understand that the cause and effect is in the connection of love to one another not the outcome.
To make good connnections with ordinary people in ordinary situations is the key, when you are open and realize that the magic is in the softening of the heart, kind eyes, and smiles you leave behind, you begin to leave a trail of love for others to follow.
Leave your prayer open ended and let love fill in the happy ending. It is not to say that you will be given your expected outcome but, what comes back will be more than you asked for.
