We are where we are, when we are and meet the people we do, for a reason. That reason is to either to teach something or to learn something.
As I write this post, I am a forty-two year old woman who has never been married or had children. My residence is in a major metro area and though I am surrounded by a dozen churches within a half mile of me, I have not set foot in a church for religious purposes in years.
Yet, I am deeply spiritual.
I know there is a higher power and that power is using me to make positive changes in the world around me.
I know this because I keep ending up in organizations with serious internal issues. Those issues lead to frustration and lots of it.
When I walk into a new organization, I come in with an open mind. I observe. I ask questions and I listen to people talk and oh my, how they talk. It amazes me what people will share with a virtual stranger. In less than ten minutes, they will not only tell me what the problem is, but how they would go about fixing it.
Talking with the employees gives me an amazingly clear view of the organization in a very short time. The source of the frustration is almost always one person in a position of power doing things that sabotage the organization and they don’t know they are doing it.
While I trace the source, The Divine puts me in a position to fix it.
I told someone I was Karma’s emissary. I said it as a joke, but I realized later, that is exactly what I am. I wander into an organization, figure out what the problem is and where it is coming from. Then I deliver a karmic head slap to get that person’s attention.
The first time I was aware of my role in Karma’s plan, that head slap was a doozy. It rocked the person on their heels and gave him a totally different perspective on his behavior. It began his journey back to the life path where he was meant to be.
She’s called on me again. Karma, I mean. I didn’t realize what was going on until I started writing this post, but it’s become clear in the time I’ve been working. My job is to open some eyes, to give a different perspective and to show people what their actions are doing to those around them. To guide them back to their life path.
When was the last time you sat down and just talked to the people in your organization? They know where the problems lay. The best part? They also know how to fix them.
