My Fridge – The Love Gauge

If ever I needed proof that “everything is energy” and “everything is because of energy,” my fridge would have to be the one that I least expected to show me this!

Now everyone knows that fridges turn themselves off once they reach a certain temperature and on when they need to cool more, as you can hear the engine humming in the background when on, and then click off when it rests.

I had owned this particular fridge for about 3 years and had noticed nothing out of the ordinary, but then one day it started turning itself off and on at a very rapid pace… and consistently so when it kicked into this phase with 1-10 sec time intervals in between… ON…OFF…ON…OFF…ON…OFF!!!

At first I didn’t think much of this other than noticing something had changed, and because it was intermittent I didn’t do anything about it. But after a while I noticed that there was a pattern of when it would do it.

As I worked from home, it became glaringly obvious that, like clockwork, the fridge would go crazy when both my housemate and I were in the house. And it drove us crazy which we were to soon realise was the whole point – to get our attention.

We respected the symbolism that nature and life is constantly offering and always inspiring us back to love. But I still wanted to cover all bases and called the fridge experts in to rule out all possibilities, even though I knew in my heart it was energy at play.

Sure enough all of them commented on how they had never experienced such a thing; some even thought I was a bit loopy. And of course when one man dared to come to the house to check, the fridge was well behaved with not a whisper! It was very clear now that this was not going to be fixed by a fridge repairman… this was energy at play with a blessing on offer.

Clearly there was a message here and the fridge was delivering it loud and clear. But what was the fridge trying to tell us? What did the fridge symbolically represent?

We knew it was connected to our relationship in the house because of the pattern of switching on and off when we were both home. And it didn’t always do it when we were home and so we explored how we were with each other when it did and when it didn’t do its crazy thing.

When we were loving with each other and letting each other in, the fridge behaved and when we were not, the fridge would lovingly tell us so by turning itself on and off – the ‘on and off’ symbolically representing the ‘hot and cold’ nature of our relationship.

The ‘cold’ representing how we keep each other out and at a distance, and the ‘hot’ representing the bringing more love to each other. An opportunity was being presented for us to go deeper with our friendship and connection. A deep healing was on offer.

The fridge had literally become our love gauge!

We were being reminded to be more love with ourselves and with each other and being given an opportunity to open our hearts wider.

Love and evolution cannot stand still, it is a continual deepening, and we were being shown that for it to be a true relationship (friendship) we could not continue to be ‘cold’ with each other metaphorically speaking.

We wanted and had asked for our relationship to deepen, but actually taking that step was a commitment from the body, not the head.

This was a clear example of how everything is energy first and foremost. If we pay attention, energy is amazing in the way it delivers truth and the opportunity to evolve.

We are connected to the all, and how loved we are that such support is there through symbolism. We cannot change the fact that evolution is eternal, but we do have a choice to say yes or no to the evolution on offer.

They say ‘God is in the detail’ and it most certainly was in this instance.
We are constantly being inspired to deepen our love from all angles and return to the love that we innately are – and I love that this is the way life is.

  1. “a blessing on offer.” If the energy in which we live affects an inanimate object like a fridge, how much more does the energy in which we live affect people around us?

  2. We all are equally drenched in symbolism, understanding it is something that comes from within ourselves and builds over time but not as a knowledge, it is more as an in-the-moment knowing by trusting our body and our connection to soul. Some days I receive things very clearly, others I have an emotion or reaction in my body and it’s like a cloud blocking the clarity.

  3. I just love how the most ordinary, everyday things in our lives, and in this case a fridge, can bring us the biggest messages in our lives. But how often would we see what you experienced as a message for you about the life you were living, and only see it as a great nuisance and one that needed a quick fix? I have learned to listen and learn from whatever is happening around me and am continually surprised and delighted where the wise and possibly life-changing messages can come from.

  4. How useful would that be to have a love gauge! (although we do have that in our bodies where we can feel if we are open or not). The constant on off that happened with the fridge is happening in our bodies and must wreak havoc on our cardiovascular system, which is designed to flow.

  5. Could it be all have love gauges like this in our lives? Magically constellated to offer us the possibility the deepen the love with ourselves and with others? I believe there are, we just have to see it.

  6. To offer and allow space to read what is going on within myself and around is an essential part of my unfolding; it is the deepening of love required to be bring about a greater awareness.

  7. I love this reminder, Marika, that everything matters and each movement, emotion or even thought has a ripple effect out to everything around us…even our appliances!

    1. Yes a great reminder Janet, the wisdom expressed here is very supportive for when my technology starts to play up again… does that mean I have to be more responsible and I can’t blame the computer anymore?

  8. God is definitely in the detail. This is an awesome reminder and great that you were willing to read this.

  9. It’s a waste of energy to doubt the heart over what the mind says simply because it is a conflict between truth and lie and truth always wins.

  10. Yes.. decisions that are felt within and come from my body are always much more absolute and sustainable than anything that ‘I’ve decided’ I’ll do or change. There has to be both – a whole body mindedness – in decisions if they are to be truly committed to and lived.

  11. “I still wanted to cover all bases and called the fridge experts in to rule out all possibilities, even though I knew in my heart it was energy at play” – I can so relate to this. Of course it would be unwise not to take care of the practical side of things, but equally unwise is thinking that that is where it starts and ends, as it actually starts with energy.

  12. God is in the detail 1000% – while there is a plan, something 7 dimensional that is nearly impossible to understand, yet it unfolds perfectly providing us all with the precise message or opportunity we need. I’ve even observed how the same incident can provide different lessons and messages to different people depending on where they were at and what was needed. Its truly magical, mind blowing, and perfectly formed.

  13. Our mechanical objects are in service to us in a bigger way than we admit. A car may not just be a car. A fridge may be more than a fridge. They can tell us something about our qualities because they have a relationship with us and get disturbed by energy we may allow in momentarily. They could serve as true thermometers of how we are doing.

    1. And we are surrounded by them, we have a relationship with them, and they infuse our lives now so we have become more and more reliant on them… so its perfect because we cannot get away from it be that our house, our phone, our car etc.

  14. “We respected the symbolism that nature and life is constantly offering and always inspiring us back to love. ” I agree. When something goes wrong in my house it feels important to discern the energy at play but also to call in experts if needed to sort a physical problem. Everything can be a learning – an opportunity to observe and deepen.

  15. I so love that God is in the details, because it is in the details that we can really get stuck into things.

  16. The reflection of blowing hot and cold with each other being reflected by the fridge makes me giggle and is such a playful way to get your attention!

  17. A great blog to revisit Marika, as only the other week my fridge was making some strange noises I had never heard before and I remembered your blog and began to read what this may be communicating to me about the house and the energy we were all in at the time. Thankfully the fridge hasn’t made this noise again, it is so important to not just pass these things off but to use it as an opportunity to bring deeper awareness and understanding to our lives.

  18. A beautiful example that everything matters and that nothing is nothing and that everything has got to do with us whether we want it so or not.

  19. It just goes to show whether we are hot or cold in every experience we have the opportunity to learn and grow.

  20. I love the expression ‘God is in the detail’, there is so much communicated to us with all the details. Sometimes it takes me a while to ‘get’ the messages, although my body also communicates. Like last Monday when I saw this green frog sitting on the path in front of me and I found € 20 along our walking path, my body felt supported, lifted up and expanded.

  21. I have been to Vietnam several times in the last ten years, and the local wildlife is pretty much; birds, lizards, fish, lots of frogs and once a small wet owl that got caught in the heavy rain at night but I had never seen a snake. A friend of ours that came with us for the first time had a large rat snake cross in front of her on the path at the resort. She has spent most of her life controlling everything in and around it. She was attending her first retreat and its hard to ignore something that big and in your face for the symbolism and message it offers. Not all the teachings are done in classrooms.

    1. Most of our learning happens outside of the classroom, for it is living life that teaches us what is on offer and the importance of loving choices.

    2. That’s it Steve, life is our classroom and it offers a constant communication from many sources, including from our friends in nature. I’m a big fan of reading clouds, I’ve seen some spectacular ones including a perfectly formed cloud of a swan swimming, even with the water surface perfectly placed, the beauty of it was amazing both in how it looked and felt – and obviously performed by a very loving artist!

  22. I know that story of something not working and when it is checked there is nothing physically wrong. At first I used to get so frustrated and would blame the engineer for being incompetent as they could not find the problem. Then I realised it had nothing to do with the competence of the engineer , so I stopped blaming but developed a given up and helpless attitude.
    It has been a wonderful empowering understanding about the energetic factor in life, and even more amazing to realise that it is always a loving reflection.

  23. I loved what you have shared Marika, we are surrounded by the energy of love every moment with evolution on offer if we are open to receive, so great for you and your friend to say yes to deepening your relationship.

  24. “And of course when one man dared to come to the house to check, the fridge was well behaved with not a whisper!” ha ha Marika, that happens to me too especially with technology…when the IT man comes to check it, what was wrong is no longer the case and then i end up apologising for wasting his time. He just laughs. Good job. It’s funny because the moment you ‘work it out’ energetically restoration occurs from having noted the communicative interplay that’s going on – all the time.

    1. Yes the ‘fix’ is always energetic first. So its not going to play up for the repairman because the focus needs to be on the energetics which is the healing that is on offer. I get this a lot with my technology too Zofia… a fresh reboot both inside and out does wonders!

  25. Another awesome blog Marika – which I have enjoyed reading with the symbolism that has presented here too! Isn’t it hilarious how you call the repairman over to check the fridge out, and of course the fridge does not play up then at all. This is a similar analogy to some dogs, and dog owners and even kids and parents – where some people have so many challenges with their children or with their dogs, and yet when you hand them over to someone else for the day, they behave well. This simply goes to show that there is something for us to learn in the relationship that is being presented, yet how easy is it to blame it on the child or the dog and not take this any further? Opportunities abound around us, the question simply is how open are we to the messages and how keen are we to learn and grow?

    1. Great comment Henrietta, it explains a lot that there are interplays of energy and we see the outplay of that in relationships and physical objects. I have a weird thing going on with my car electricals and lights coming up in the display when they shouldn’t be, and I need to go deeper with reading and understanding the symbolism of it because my mechanic said unless he sees it as it’s happening he has no idea what it is or how to fix it – naturally it doesn’t occur when I take the car for a service!

  26. “Love and evolution cannot stand still, it is a continual deepening” Hence why life is not about everything going smoothly or to our liking so to speak. Life is about learning and growing and in this deepening our love and hence in this partaking in the evolution on offer. When we make life about the latter, then we are open to all the challenges that present, and we see them as opportunities and blessings to support us in our growth.

    1. Love this Henrietta, and it is so true, we keep wanting to go by without any humps and bumps and then get stressed out when we do encounter them because we see them as problems instead of the offering to deepen and grow.

  27. How frustrating it can be when something is ‘going wrong’ and ‘malfunctioning’ as we so often see it, but pausing and taking a closer look at what is playing out energetically, it can often be rectified.

  28. I live alone and have this happen with my lights in the house. When I am not living up to par with where I am at in my personal evolution, the lights in my living room will start to flicker or turn off by themselves. When I am making loving choices and show my light and power it simply does not happen.

    1. Carolien, this is hilarious and awesome that you have clocked this! I sometimes get the cruise control on my car that does not work – and this can be really frustrating on a long drive on the highway…but I have come to understand that perhaps a part of me has been cruising instead of living my full potential, and so this is a simple reminder to not cruise along when I know how much more there is to bring!

      1. Henrietta, thank you, I have the same thing sometimes with cruise control not working. And yes Carolien I agree, there is a lighthearted sense of humour in the symbolism, it is a definite feeling of being loved.

  29. ‘If we pay attention, energy is amazing in the way it delivers truth and the opportunity to evolve.’ Hear hear Marika and indeed how loved we are that this is delivered tirelessly, with no end, always offering a new step no matter what our previous choices have been.

  30. Computer problems are an example of this. When something fails and I repeatedly try to make it work without success, I’m being shown I’m pushing through a project or writing and need to stop, rest, do something, go for a walk. When I return the problem has usually cleared itself.

    1. I used to get so frustrated with computer problems. If anyone wanted to get at me, this would have once been a good way to do it. I’ve now prepared myself and have extra cables and know a few different things to try having slightly upped my technological abilities but when it happens now days I simply don’t react. I do my best to read what is going on and move with that. Far more pleasant that the tension and reaction I used to go into.

      1. Great to hear this Nikki. it’s often said it’s easy when you know how. I stepped up a level with computers by asking for help. 1:1 sessions with Simon Asquith, were a revelation and gave me the knowledge I needed to simplify and organise my folders as well as navigate my way around the desk top and trouble shoot. When we’re open to expand, we’re constellated to meet the person best suited to guide us. Magical when this happens

  31. We are continually being offered reflections that will support us to evolve, we just need to be aware of these offerings and say YES.

  32. An incident occurred in my home last week very similar to what Marika and her friend experienced with their fridge. In my case all the lights went out in my home! What I found interesting was my immediate reaction was to blame another for what had happened! If I had stopped to reflect, the message would have revealed itself for in that moment my light had switched off and I was unwilling to read the situation, the situation being that there was an opportunity on offer to bring a greater love to my relationships. The following day to my surprise they were fixed with simplicity and effortlessly.

  33. This is an awesome reminder that rather than getting frustrated when we feel technology lets us down there is always the opportunity to read what is really going on.

    1. I agree Helen, so often we can go into frustration rather than taking a moment to stop and read what is actually going on and what we are being offered to see. The moment we make life about energy everything starts to make sense.

    2. To stay with the frustration of the fridge not working, and why wouldn’t it do it’s thing when the repairman came and so on, is such an unpleasant way to deal with things like this. When we open ourselves up to the more of what is being communicated, the body loves it.
