Do you ever wonder if a word is overused? Sometimes I think we tend to tune out certain words while other ones echo loud and clear. I’m not sure what that phenomenon is, I’ll just call it the “dontwannahearit syndrome - DWHI for short.” The DWHI creeps into our lives while we are distracted, while we are putting our focus on the “high dollar items” of life (the bling-bling); such that when things like meditation, peace, love are being discussed or suggested for us we automatically tune it out. Oh, not THAT again would be preferred over totally dismissing it. The DWHI shows up in all aspects of our lives and can be a real problem in relationships whether personal, business or societal. When a new buzzword comes on the scene we stand up and pay attention. We can’t seem to get enough of it. Remember when OMG first became viral? I had a friend who liked to really stretch it out with Ohh Mmmm Geee just for dramatic emphasis. If she was in the room, it was sure to be heard at some point during the night and usually to the point where we started looking for duct tape! Eventually, it became a DWHI and was no longer a novelty. Think about it. When’s the last time you remember someone saying it? They probably do but it is tuned out from overuse and well, we just dontwannahearit, right?
As we move forward into this new year, our new opportunity to make a difference and bring in change into our world, what are we not hearing? I asked the angels this question because, well, inquiring minds want to know and also I don’t want to do a DWHI to something that might just be a key factor in my peace mission. Here is what they had to say to all of us:
Dear Ones, indeed there are times when you are more interested in chasing the rabbit rather than feeding the hen. The rabbit is a fun, cute little thing and just its elusive nature makes it more appealing. You can watch it play and all else seems to take a backseat. We remember Teri spending hours photographing them and so excited when they revealed themselves. They were never a part of her childhood. The hen on the other hand is not cute and cuddly. It is ordinary and visible and many times it is a chore to make sure it is fed, its eggs collected and it is kept safe from predators. Teri grew up with hens so most of the time they are a DWHI for her.
Dear Ones, our point here is that there will always be something out of the ordinary that comes into your life – a new person, a new job, a new buzzword to dwell on and learn about, a new illness…. The not-so-new things in life are sometimes the necessities that are there to bring understanding, to fit into the puzzle just perfectly. If you are choosing to not hear/see/feel it because you have already been there done that, then you are caught up in the DWHI syndrome and you may be missing out on your lesson and your blessing.
I am so grateful for the answer to my question from my amazing messengers. OMG I think I’ll go find a hen to take a picture of!
