It’s not the first time this has happened. And it still startles me, scares me and definitely gets my attention when Spirit knocks on my door.
In the past I have experienced the fire alarm going off, the lights flashing on and off, the doorbell ringing and even a microwave turning on and off. All because Spirit is trying to get my attention.
This time it was a sudden, and very loud knock on our apartment door at 4 a.m.
I was just about to sleep. After spending several hours on-line working on everything except my writing, I turned out the lights and said my prayers. I ignored the calling I felt in my heart to write. I hushed the guides around me urging me the last several days to share more through my stories.
I also have been ignoring the grumpiness that is creeping up because I am not expressing myself the way that Spirit intended.
And so that is when the strange noises go bump, thump and ding dong in the middle of the night. When I try to ignore my calling, when I try to hush my guides, Spirit comes a knocking.
I jumped out of bed tonight feeling some fear.
I checked the front door, just to be sure, and then calmed down and surrendered to Spirit.
“All right, all right…” I said out loud and I turned on my bedroom light and the computer once again.
Time to work. Time to write. When Spirit comes knocking, you kind of have to answer.
I hope you are answering your own callings, too. If not, this is a warning. One way or another Spirit will move us in that direction. We can do what we have been asked obediently and without struggle.
Or we can be shaken awake in our deepest slumber.
Do what you came to do.
In love and working with Spirit late into the night,
