Yesterday morning I found three dead mice in the pool!
I could be heard all over the neighbourhood screaming “three dead mice in the pool ……. not in the contract, not in the contract”.
It was very funny and luckily the owner, who thought I’d fallen IN the pool because there was so much noise, was still here so he could scoop the soggy, perfectly lined up nursery rhyme characters, out of the pool and unceremoniously dump them in the paddock.
He kept saying, we’ve never had that before, so the message was obviously for me!
On the same day I learned about gecko poop and the perfect little white dot that appears on every deposit left on top of the outdoor dining table.
Most certainly the animal spirits were on my case!
This morning I did a bit Google-ing about the spiritual meaning of geckos and mice and it seems there is no “co-incidence” that I decided to listen to my Tony Robbins tapes about goal setting on my recent three day road trip.
Goal setting is very spiritual
Since re-listening to the tapes again over the weekend I began to tap further into the fact that goal setting is very spiritual.
I’ve never considered that before.
Basically our goals reflect our deepest desires.
The word desire comes from the latin root “of the father”.
If we look at the word in it’s higher context, then the desire for what we want must be seeded, channelled or fathered by our higher source, whatever that is for each individual.
It became easier for me to understand when I split the word into De-SIRE – like “to sire”, the way a male horse is described in racing circles.
If our creativity, ideas etc are all “fathered” or “sired” from that higher part of us that is divine pure love, then it transpires that our goals and desires must be “de-sired” from the same source and are very sacred.
It is also very masculine energy so it is very important that we find ways within the divine feminine to balance the high levels of yang within the goal setting process.
The higher meaning in the word was enough to shift my whole way of thinking about goal setting.
It isn’t always about stuff
The traditional goal setting of just getting “more and more stuff” doesn’t really appeal to someone who can fit all her possessions in a 3 x 3 x 3 container and would still have room to park her car in there …. if she was allowed!
Goals about contribution and giving make sense
It makes much more sense to me to be creating a life and world where we are giving and encouraging people to “be more” rather than “get more”. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t stop wanting to have more physical abundance, because with more money you can do a whole lot more contributing than you can without it.
There has to be balance
When you are poor you are so focused on everyday survival, you have very little left in the tank to give generously to others. Therefore it is important to have some “get” goals or you can’t “give”.
There can be guilt associated with goal setting
I can remember a good friend accusing me of “being greedy” for evoking the parking angel and “wishing up” car parks where ever I wanted one. When you view the spiritual link to goal setting, we will automatically have the best available to us, so why would wanting the best be wrong?
I’m currently housesitting in an beautiful home in a tropical paradise with a pool, spa and staff who keep it all good. All I have to do is scoop the leaves off the top of the pool each morning and deal with anything unforeseen that drops in the pool overnight!
Someone was always going to be here. Why wouldn’t it be me?
It is probably the same for you if you are of service to the world, why shouldn’t you de-serve to have the best of every situation?
It’s all about respect
When our goals and desires are treated in a very respectful way and really tap into what we truly want, then we are at one with the universe.
Makes sense if we are tapping that universal flow, then our goals will become much easier to achieve.
It’s all about trust
In the crazy up and down world of trust I live in now, I’ve come to understand that now more than ever our thoughts and words are simply the parking angel of life. We can chose the best or worst situation for ourselves. It just takes a bit of guts to take the leaps of faith and deal with the aftermath of the decision, so you can align up to what you truly desire.
It’s about finding the right goals for YOU and no one else
