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.
