HELPFUL FRIENDS

Went to see Susan, a spiritual intuitive two weeks ago. I've seen her several times throughout the years, and each time I'm given so much useful information/guidance/help I almost blow a fuse. Actually, this time I went mostly to get some help understanding what was going on with Rojo. Actually, it was Michelle O'Neil that suggested I consult a medical intuitive. Not knowing of any medical intuitives, I called Susan. I'm glad I did.

She did talk a lot about Rojo, and confirmed what I had already figured out by that point, that he what was going on with him would be best treated by a naturopath. The fact that he's gained six pounds in two weeks is proof.

We talked about every other aspect of my life, too, again, her mostly confirming what I already knew, but was resistant to know.

She urged me to Feng Shui my house, and suggested I get this book, Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life. She pulled out a piece of paper, divided it into nine sections and labeled them all for me.

"This one here," she said, pointing to the lower right corner, "is your Helpful Friends section. You are in a place in your life when you need to pull in all the help you can get. One thing you can do right away is go home, get some foil and make an envelope. Write down the names of three people that you need to be helpful, and put those pieces of paper into the Helpful Friends envelope. Then put the envelope in that section of your house, visit the envelope often, and watch what happens."

I wrote down the names of two specific people I was wanting to be more helpful, and the no-name of someone I was hoping to attract. I attracted that no-name person. Still don't know their name, but it's been revealed to me that they are on the horizon and in a position to help. The other two are being more helpful, too. I'm sold.

That's the great news, but the equally great news is it's changed the way I feel about asking for help. I have had to overcome my phone phobia this week and talk to doctors, insurance companies, labs that made mistakes, blah, blah, blah. Each time I pick up the phone I say a little prayer, "Thank you for putting me through to a very helpful person." When I first called Blue Cross yesterday a lovely man named Kyle answered, I explained the situation and he said, "I'm sorry, that's not my field of expertise, but let me put you through to someone that can be more helpful. And he did. Sondra. Sondra put me on hold twice while she made telephone calls FOR me so I didn't have to. Then she called me back a half hour later to tell me she thought of one more thing that might be helpful to know.

My new attitude is that the universe is full of people just waiting to help me, I just need to ask. And wait with positive expectancy.

I am completely BULLISH on asking for help (as you well know). There is nothing more satisfying than getting the help you (sometimes) didn't even know you needed. Awe-some.

I saw my friend last night with cancer, took her a casserole. She was telling me that she's learning to accept help. I told her I was crap at accepting help but I know I need to. This morning I shocked my husband by asking him to dress Katie. He usually just asks if I need help, knowing I'll say no and he can go back to bed to sleep, knowing he's done his bit by asking. This morning I asked him for help and he did. Note to self, must ask for more help.

And where in my house is my Helpful Friends section?

Nancy said...

Wow have you been helpful to me here. Nothing harder in the world for me than asking for help and I need a lot of it now. Ordering this book today :)

deb,

If you divide a rectangle into 9 equal sections, and the bottom of the rectangle represents the front of the house, the Helpful Friends section is the most lower right section.

Here's to help!
