It's better than shoveling snow!
Thoughts are things. I will keep saying this over and over again until everyone gets it. Thoughts are things. Thoughts are things. Did you know it takes anywhere from three to seven times before we learn something new? What we put our attention on grows and grows and grows and grows. Stop putting your attention on things that are less than, or destructive.
Every year I see it, or should I say feel it (I don’t watch TV). It is hurricane season and we live in Florida. Stop the hype. I get it. When I first moved here and there was a hurricane eyeing central Florida, I started filling bathtubs up and making sure we had and, blah, blah, blah, blah. I was laughed at because it was too far out and sure enough it never came.
One year my daughter called me and asked if I was getting ready, and I’m like for what. LOL. She couldn’t believe it. I did recall seeing something briefly on social media, though. And so the other day on Facebook I see some meteorologist who’s pretty cool talking about how not to freak out and now today, Wednesday, he’s ready for something that could or could not come by late Sunday early Monday. As of Saturday, possible landfall is Tuesday. However, it may skirt the east coast.
Again, I live in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp and work as a Medium. I’m also chairperson for the PR Team. Wednesday was a busy day. We had a crew of 14 filming part of an episode for Road Trip TNT/Spain and that night I was the message bearer at the Wednesday Night Message Service. There were about 20 there. I was surprised with all of the chaos going on. The energy was completely off the wall. I could and still can to some extent feel the frenzy. That night I went to get gas in Lake Helen, the little town next to Cassadaga. They were out. I was amazed. Heck, I may need to get another tankful by Sunday. Then I see it all over Facebook. The stores are crazy.
People, the more we put our attention on the storm the stronger it gets. It’s always been a theory of mine. I wonder if no one put their attention on it, would it fizzle out. I’d love to try that experiment sometime, although I don’t think people could do it. Now that I think about it do people like to live in chaos?
And if the storm does come, it does. What can we do about it? Wait it out, or head north. We must remember that everything is in Divine Order. There’s no changing that.
Peace be with you!

Great piece of writing - I definitely agree with your analogy – the news makes people all hyper and wigged out – as long as the windows are bordered up and you have drinking water stop the hullabaloo and driving yourself wackadoo – as we all know that prayers are powerful so let’s pray for the demise of the hurricane instead of hysteria of it infusing our community – lot’s of luck with your blog – great stuff - Dee
