The Sacred Grace of Shutting Up
Recently I was in the position to righteously and rightfully say “I told you so!”–and didn’t.
Don’t get me wrong, I was all over spewing the words. My mouth opened up wide with the retort right on my lips for the group to hear–and I swear an angel snapped it shut for me. That same angel then transformed my growing smile of giddiness from being publicly right, into instead beaming support for my husband (my I-told-you-so target) as he had his Aha moment. It was as if I were standing next to myself watching this happen.
It’s not about the manifestaion, in this case weed killer and mulch. It’s also really not about being right, or being recognized as such. This is about shared emotional space with my loved one, and it was my own Aha moment.
Often I desire to be on the same wavelength with another, very much so with my husband. This includes a verbal or even situational plane, and now I see an energetic one. Yes, conversation and words bring union. So does participating in a common activity or position. However, silently standing in grace and seeing it energetically received, acknowledged, and returned elevates the shared space to sacredness. I credit my husband with his participation in this energetic exchange. Whether he is conscious of it or not, his soul is.
Many times we silently send it out. The gift is when we experience the exchange. That is indeed sacred grace.
