This month’s energies are asking you to look at what you’re celebrating and, more deeply, why? What experiences have you taken wisdom from that have brought you joy and what of this will you use for the future or planning of the future?
I must say, I’m celebrating the magic of life. Chris and I were in what the police call an animal collision on the new moon eclipse. We had just come from a wonderful day trip to Leadville to take engagement photos for our family. We stopped at a restaurant before we headed back down in the dark.
We were going very fast, and the highway was full of traffic surrounding us. We were in one of the middle lanes of a 4-lane highway. There was no time to swerve, and that was probably a good thing in hindsight. There was highway in front of us and then there was a giant elk face and body and antlers and then there was slow motion. The impact seemed big, but nothing seemed real at that point.
The airbags were instant, there was powder in the air, we couldn’t see anything, glass everywhere, the whole windshield was concave. There was a perfect circle in the windshield by Chris where an antler had made it’s way straight through. I can barely think about how close it was from Chris. It missed him.
When we pulled ourselves together the first thing Chris said was, “This is so sad.” It was sad. The huge elk wasn’t found by the police who looked to make sure he was off of the road. He wasn’t on either side of the highway when they searched.
We were ok. Chris drove blindly to the side of the road until we hit the side rail because we couldn’t see out of the front windshield. No one hit us while doing this, which is also amazing. The police said they couldn’t believe we were walking away from this, or that the collision didn’t cause a pile up in all that traffic. Two people stopped to see if we needed help before the police got there.
Our insurance company wanted to get all the details. It was difficult to hear them on the phone with all the traffic racing by. Chris and I went back and forth on the phone and talking to the police. Finally got the tow truck. Got home. We were safe.
It’s hard to not get comfortable with the normalcy of life around you.
We forget that we’re precious and temporary and that everything is. The wisdom I’m taking for the planning of future is about going after what I’ve been dreaming about. No time like the present. You never know when you’re going to be catapulted into another dimension! Stop postponing! Dive Deep and do it now. Love with your whole heart.
Thank you for another beautiful night, Goddesses!
