It was so hot today I reached a point where my brain pretty much ceased to function, so I found a dvd at my house sit and watched of all things a horror film! An oldie from Stephen King called “It” which I remember scared the pants off me when I read the book, the movie wasn’t quite so bad but there were a few moments when I had goosebumps, which is fairly impressive considering the soaring temperature!
It kept me suitably occupied and one could simply dismiss it as a distraction but I can’t help myself, I’m always looking for meanings in things, and so I wondered what possible lesson there could be in this film for me. It’s the story of a bunch of kids who take on a monster who has been haunting the town of Derry for hundreds of years, it comes to life every 30 years and feeds on children mostly. It’s only the kids who can see the hallucinations created by this creature, the adults have stopped ‘believing’ so they can’t see what is obvious and terrifying to the children.
There is a moment in the fight against the monster where one of the kids uses his asthma puffer as a weapon and as he sprays it he is saying, “This is battery acid” with total conviction and it works just as if it was acid. The message here is that our belief or strong intention can create anything that we desire, there is also a powerful message in the fact that the friends must band together in order to defeat their opponent, the connection that they have to each other creates a kind of magic.
Nothing is ‘impossible’, not if your intention is strong and steady and you are prepared to accept a little help from your friends. I’m still trying to work out how to apply this to my latest project, the celebration of the new chapter in my life, symbolised by my 50th birthday next month. But apply it I shall, life is currently showering me with abundant blessings so I don’t see why that shouldn’t be the case in every area of my life, time to move into the fullness of prosperity on every level of my being!
So be it, so be it, so be it………….
Here’s a trailer for the movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndmNc-rJtbc
