I have a story to share with you all.
2 weeks ago my phone died, literally dead, no life. And our house didn't have a broadband for a bit due to people moving in and out. Plus I forgot my watch at my friend's house 😃
So I was there like no phone, no internet, no watch. Totally disconnected from the world and I don't know the time.
Partly it happened because this is the time I really started being in my power and started creating things I love doing. It was like, 'ok let's disconnect and distract you a bit'. Once I saw that though, I relaxed, I thought I'll just enjoy this few days without a phone.
It turned out to be magical.
Usually I listen to music when I walk, didn't have that so only option was to be present and look around. Same on the tube, it felt like I'm seeing things for the first time. I thought I was pretty present normally, but this was like a new level.
I used the internet once a day from a cafe nearby to contact some people. So told my friend who I was meeting up the next day the situation, and we agreed on a time and place to meet up. I asked people how to get there, looked for signs and stuff. Literally everything pushed me to be present and surrender. No control whatsoever.
My friend arrived saying 'Sorry I'm late'. It was kinda funny because time didn't exist for me in those last few days. I had more space than having more time.
I only knew the time from the board in the underground btw:) somehow not having a watch nor phone, I was super on time. Didn't have a phone to distract myself basically.
Then.. I bought a new phone. Put on there my emails, apps and all that.
I realised all the photos were gone, weren't backed on icloud. Half of my contacts and all my notes.. Where I write stuff down when things come to me.. I was like oh my god.. Felt super down.. I was actually attaching myself to all those magical experiences I had in the last 2-3 months.
I came home and I had a package. My boyfriend sent me the book "Letting Go". So funny:) basically saying 'ok time to start from scratch'..
It was freedom once I surrendered and let go of trying to control and to know..
Being present with whatever experience you're having is the best way to go through it. When you're present, you realise it's not as bad, as scary as you imagined it to be. It just is. And that's when you surrender. Then everything just relaxes and falls into place..
Now I'm super happy with my new phone and few photos I got 😄
Much love to you all 💜 🔮
