Today we are really going into the woo-woo world of possibilities, so open your mind and remember, smiling and laughing are wonderful ways to uplift your vibrations.
Here is a deep dark secret. I believe having a relationship with your appliances, sinks, toilets and tools creates a smoother flowing, maximum efficiency, longer lasting lifespan for them and less angst for you.
Connect with the sentient energy in all your household items and tell them regularly how grateful you are for their smooth functioning. Send them your highest frequency energy and feel their response.
This practice evolved because I have made it my goal to find something to enjoy in every situation. For example, I prefer many activities to housework. But by committing to find something enjoyable in every situation in order to maintain higher vibration energy, I challenge myself to find something new every time I do a chore. I have really found pleasure in seeing a clean toilet, enjoyed using my sense of smell with the cleaning products I use. When the effect of the good smell no longer did it for me I imagined myself as Cinderella, cleaning just after I'd met Prince Charming (knowing of course that he would find me and hire someone to clean for me).
The feminist in me rebelled, so that quickly paled and I found another rather bizarre way to play while cleaning the toilet. Now, as you know, I connect with plants and animals, so it wasn't that much of a stretch to play with the idea of connecting with the energy or the spirit of my toilet.
I told it I was grateful it was an indoor toilet and that it flushed. I thanked it for working so well and staying leak free. Well, that was kind of unusual and funny, and my frequency rose even more when I thought about how my family and acquaintances would respond if I told them this was my new mindfulness practice.
Now I do this with all my appliances. I am so grateful that my old refrigerator and freezer keep on plugging along. I encourage my dishwasher to hang in there, when it occasionally has water remaining in the bottom after a wash. I ask my washer to get out the stains in any clothes I launder and thank it for doing a great job.
On the rare occasion something needs fixing, I ask the sentient energy or overlying deva of the item to tell me what to do. In many cases its simple and I have avoided hiring repair people. Be sure to listen if it tells you to ask a friend, check out you tube or google, since the item may not give you the directions itself but point you in the right direction. You may need to call on the advise of a higher conscious expert whose passed over. I've asked Thomas Edison or his electrician friends for their help in getting light fixtures to work. Steve Jobs has a group of energetic beings who can help with computer glitches. However it's a good idea to first check if glitches are signals to stop what you are doing and take a break or move onto something else. :)
So, let go of your dignity and step into the woo-woo. I have found being playful can lead to higher vibration, relaxation, an open mind and being available to new ideas you may not have considered. This in turn leads to living a more consistent, higher conscious divinely joyful life.
