A Lesson from Singing in the Shower at the Gym

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Something very interesting happened at the gym a bit ago that called me to share with you. I was in the locker room changing after yoga and a nice sit in the steam room when I heard beautiful singing coming from the shower area. I don’t know about you but I love to sing in the shower and I do it quite often. I paused and took note that someone felt called to sing in the shower in the busy locker room. When I turned from my locker a woman was coming from the shower area to the locker section where I was. I turned to her, smiled and said “was that you singing so beautifully in the shower?” She had a great reply, she said “thank you, yes it was. I believe we should be our authentic selves. I believe we should hear God and just be who we are.” I smiled as I watched her radiating love and light.

Then an interesting thing happened…

Another woman in the locker area said, “I agree but how do you know when you are hearing God or just what you want to hear?” The energy that was making my heart sing flipped in an instant. The woman who had been singing, talking about being authentic and then radiating love and light, came back with a snappy response of “I have had many lifetimes of being enlightened and when that happens you know. It works for me” …end of conversation with a closing off of any high vibration energy. Then there was silence, a lot of heavy energy came flooding in, followed by these two woman staring into their lockers as they finished what they needed to do there. Whoa!

If you know me, you can guess what I did next. I called in the divine love and light to reverse the energy void that we were all living in. It worked but I couldn’t shake the experience as I walked to my car feeling into what the heck just happened in there.

It’s soooo easy for us as women (men too but I’m focusing on you sisters) to make assumptions about what someone means rather than making a conscious decision to feel into a situation, get conscious or even ask questions before jumping to conclusions. Right there in the gym locker room I witnessed a sister shutting down another sister in a defensive tactical play. I don’t believe she was being malicious; I believe she was unconscious of the situation.

It felt like the woman who asked “how do you know when you are hearing God or just what you want to hear?” genuinely wanted to know. She wasn’t trying to poke or question if the other woman was actually hearing God. She yearned to know how to make that same connection to God.

There is a lesson here for us sisters. Consciousness could have shifted this situation. If the woman who opened the energy in this whole matter by singing in the shower would have been aware that another sister needed her guidance and light, rather than assuming she was questioning her ability to hear God, everything would have been different.

The world conditions us to compete as women and sometimes to assume the worst in our sisters. Let’s please change that…If you and I set an intention to be conscious and assume the best in others, this will begin to change. It begins with one woman choosing to set the intention. Are you ready? I pledge to see the best in you and every sister in our sisterhood! Come join me…let’s love and honor each other first and foremost.

If you pledge to set the intention say so in the comments sections. I would love to hear if this message resonates with you and if you’re ready to be a part of the change! We all learn and grow together when we share.
