I had a jeep for 12 years and in that time, the rear view mirror would not stay attached. I finally gave up and it stayed off. Then I got a newer car and I managed to knock the side mirror off of it three times in the course of a year. My old car also always had leaks both inside and out. Now my new car also has leaks inside and out. (The fluids of the car leak OUT and the rain leaks IN.)
The Universe speaks to me in funny ways. This is one of them.
This is what it means. Mirrors that won’t stay on mean “Don’t look back” (Don’t spend time dwelling on the past; go forward.) The outer leaks mean “Don’t let anything drain your energy” The leaking inside the car mean: “Don’t let anyone or anything get INSIDE you to disrupt your inner peace.”
I had figured out the meaning of the mirrors a long time ago. Today is when the other message about the leaks came to me.
The messages became clear by a letter I received from a former friend who I had a falling out with. He got angry 2 years ago about the events of my life that I had posted on Facebook. (I had posted about a client who did not show up for his appointment. I figured out that he had been looking for a less than ethical massage session. I was discussing the situation on facebook. I was annoyed.) My former friend was a “spiritual teacher” and published author. After this facebook incident that he clearly did not like, he decided to “unfriend” me and write me a letter to tell me that my life, my word and my consciousness were SHIT and he no longer wanted to be associated with me or see my “shit”. (Yes! He said I was SHIT! After being a close friend/father figure for 9 years!) So, I said, “Thank you for your input, close the door behind you on your way out.” (Buh-bye.) And I congratulated him on joining the ranks of those who found me unacceptable. (smiley face)
Well, two years later, yesterday, I received an apology. He was generous enough to say that he still cares about me (“as a person“) and that he was at fault with his dumping our friendship. In essence, he told me it was his fault because he thought I was someone that I was not.
“It was about my stupidity and unwarranted expectations.”
“It seems I wanted you to be more than you want to be.”
