Sign From God. Synchronicity. Miracles.

In Celebration, Courage, Tools by Melani Marx

Hello lovely human!
 

This past week, Mr Georgia and I spent a good part of a day reading and enjoying the sun on our back porch. 


At one point, amid the bird song he said “I’m reading your latest missive.”
 

Mystified, I answered,  “What missive? I haven’t sent any missives out?! Forward me a copy, please.” 
 

When I looked in my inbox on my phone I broke out in laughter at the teaser line – 
 

“What to do when you don’t freakin know what to do…”
 

Laughing because in the last few days I had been saying those exact words. Repeatedly.
 

 “I have no freakin idea how to do this!”
 

“This” being – allowing myself to fully relax and be loved. Truly, deeply, safely, and unconditionally loved by another human without an unconscious agenda. 
 

Who knew how incredibly challenging and activating this thing I had longed for, prayed for would be?!


That my body, my nervous system, my psyche would be so overwhelmed by safety!
 

By conscious equal partnership. 
 

By clear communication. 
 

By full acceptance. 
 

By LOVE! 
 

Who the Sam Hill knew?!
 

There’s a lot more to this as you might imagine. It’s been an ever deeper unwinding in ways I as yet don’t always have words for. 
 

Knowing myself, I’m sure I will at some point. 
 

The point of this missive however, is that when I read the words I had written in late August of last year it felt as if my past self was standing there whispering in my ear months later – knowing I’d need these exact words in this… very… moment. 
 

As answer to my prayers. 
 

As confirmation of what my inner knowing and outside wisdom was sharing with me. 


As a reminder of what I know to be true.
 

Because I too forget. 
 

All. The. Time. 


As a sign. A whisper. A loving affirmation from God/the Universe/Source/Higher-Self/My “Team” – “You’ve got this darling!” 
 

For which I am deeply grateful. 
 

It was what allowed me to FULLY Surrender and Allow… 

Global transformation is moving at lightning speed. 
 

Collectively, we are shifting at such a rapid pace it is truly impossible for the mind to take in and comprehend. 
 

Every human on the planet is experiencing this – with varying degrees of consciousness. 
 

Each of us are unwinding, dissolving, detaching from blood and bone deep outworn, old paradigm ways of being. 
 

The patterned responses accumulated and calcified through lifetimes, lineage and personal experiences that have kept us bound in the past rather than living the promise, the opportunity of NOW.
 

The ways of being that are limiting the full emanation of our Soul’s Divine expression here in human form. 
 

The obstacles to awakening to and living our true potential as unfolding, co-creative beings – with ourselves, our brethren, the planet herself. 
 

Each of us are here, a vital spark of the infinite ALL, doing this chrysalis, caterpillar, butterfly thing. Contributing to this global initiatory experience in our own absolutely, unmatchable and unique ways. 
 

It literally couldn’t, cannot happen without each of us. 
 

Also. 
 

We just flat out have NOT been here before. 
 

Not a one of us. 
 

We truly don’t have in our memory banks or experience how to do this thing it is we are doing here. Now. 
 

And. The mind?

He just plain needs to “know”. It is simply his nature. 

Which creates a bit of a conflict and dilemna.

The solar, more masculine/mental energy of needing to “know” and the lunar, more feminine, instinctual energy of softening, opening and allowing. 

That being said, I hope the following reprise of the missive my wise Self wrote for my current self – and you – to read as affirmation and confirmatory message six months later is useful for you as well.
 

We are, after all – all in this together… 

Missive from the Heroine’s Journey August 2023…

😧 Up against a wall. At an impasse. No idea how to proceed. 😧
Or… What to do when you don’t freakin’ know what to do….


A wise man asked me a question today that caused me to laugh out loud, because it was very much in line with the theme of the day, the week, the month, the year – the energies we are all swimming in here on planet Earth. 

“What is the difference between surrender and allowing?”
 

I got quiet, dropped in and the memory of the many, many, many times I had conscioulsy surrendered came rushing back to me.
 

Surrender always took place when I’d hit a dead end. Was at an impasse. Wallowing in despair and hopelessness. Did not know what to do next. How to step forward. How to proceed. At a loss. Up against a wall.
 

Surrender, or my version, looks like me gathering my dilemma, no matter how small or large, in my cupped hands and literally lifting them to the “heavens.” 
 

Offering the situation up with an out-loud prayer…
 

“Dearest Divine Beloved, Creator, All That Is… I have done everything I know to do and I am stuck. 
 

I do not know how to do this thing, move forward, proceed. Be with this…
 

Please…. 
 

I ask for your support and assistance. I ask for your guidance and help. 
 

I ask for your generous and abundantly infinite wisdom with this_____.
 

Thank you. Thank you! Thank you!
 

Amen”

Surrender is the prayer.

Allowing?

Allowing is making myself open and ready to receive… 

It means listening for an answer in whatever form it comes, whenever it arrives, from wherever it comes.


A sign. 


A whisper.


A shift in consciousness


A miracle.


A brass band.


Surrender is a true act of courage.


It does NOT mean giving up. 


Surrender means opening to the possibility that you do not have to do this alone. Humans are not meant to do Life alone. 


Surrender means connecting with your inner positive Warrior – who knows with absolute certainty that you never, ever go into battle by yourself or fight alone.


If asking the Divine for help is off-putting, then ask your guides. That is their sole job – to support you. 


However I have found that going straight to the Infinite brings a greater sense of relief, comfort and faith in the solution. It centers me in the Divine Essence streaming through my own being, reminding of who and what I truly am. 

Allowing is an even greater act of courage. 


It means allowing the defenses around your heart, mind and spirit to soften and drop so that you may receive the abundant blessings of Life. 


So that the prayers you have been praying your whole life can finally find you.


Allowing means that you are willing to allow for the possibilities.


It does NOT mean you have to know the how of something happening, changing, shifting. 


That is actually not our job as humans. 


It is our job to get clear about what we want, need, truly desire. 
 

Then let go and do whatever shows up next to do, no matter what it is. Take a walk. Make a phone call. Wash the dishes. Take a nap. Do the laundry. Hug your beloved. 
 

In point of fact we cannot know the “how” of it. 

As Einstein famously said – “No problem can be solved in the same consciousness in which it was created.”
 

Read that again…

“No problem can be solved in the same consciousness in which it was created.”

In other words… we are sitting in the consciousness of dilemma, therefore we have no ability to be IN the consciousness of the solution. 
 

We CAN get clear on where we are – in the soup, in pain, in a pickle.
 

We CAN surrender, lift it up, ask for support.
 

We CAN consciously out loud release resistance, open and allow the solutions and new consciousness to arrive. 
 

We open ourselves to Grace.
 

This is absolutely not a one and done.
 

This becomes a practice.
 

We do this over and over and over again.
 

This is how we transform our lives.

Our minds.

Our circumstances. 
 

We start inside our very own being.
 

We are willing.

Willing to shift, to drop the limitations, to open and receive, to fully love.

It’s very useful to even say it out loud. “I am willing.”
 

We keep coming back to ourselves. 


Loving those youngest parts and deeply listening for their tales of trauma, of not belonging, of not being fully welcomed or unconditionally met.

These are the places of resistance.
 

“Letting go of the resistance to the transformation IS the transformation.”

Ashwini Narayanan


The wise man left me with one last question today.
 

“When will you allow yourself to let go of all the things you are holding onto that you are trying to let go of?”


My answer was a resounding, “Right now!!!” 
 

Which brought me right back to surrender and allowing, once again.


I have a little Surrender Song for you.

This is my go to song to sing when I am holding on too tightly – to fear, to outcome, to resistance, to disbelief, to a stance, to anything.

It helps me remember what is true. It reminds me that I am in the flow of Life and all is well. 
 

Listen here.

PS… when Mr Georgia and I were sitting on the porch both reading this missive this past week, he played the above song. Mr Georgia is a lifelong musician and has a very discriminating ear so between you and me, some aspect of me always cringes a little when he listens to me sing. 

Here is what he said or how I remember it…

“You have lovely openness on your vowels… until you sing “control” and then you tighten up and they disappear.”

Hahahahaha! I loved that!

The body, the voice never lies, does it? 

Control – Surrender – Allowing

Back to my Winter rest and restoration time. 

Sweetest blessings…. 

A few last words…. 
 
Please remember, dear one  – 

To take some time every day….

To sit and breathe deep into your belly. 
 
To sing songs to yourself. 
 
To humm and dance. 
 
To shake and bounce on your toes.
 
To slow down and allow yourself to integrate all that is going on.
 
To do absolutely nothing – if only for five minutes. 
 
To notice the beauty around you.
 
To eat and enjoy delicious foods your body loves. 
 
To come back to your Center as often as you remember.

To tuck yourself sweetly into bed at night.
 
To hold yourself very lovingly, very gently and oh, so very kindly. 
 
To say out loud three times – “I love my Life. I love my body. I love myself.” 
 
To savor the small moments.
 
May every single day bring you the sweetest gifts of Wonder, Magic and Beauty…  

And when you see them may you remember that these are magnificent reflections of your own amazing Self.
