Eight years after that, I found myself living in the USA and having an extreme pain on one of my teeth. It was not the old molar, it was a different tooth. I went to the dentist and it turned out to be that I needed a root canal. The pain was so bad that I would have done anything to make it stop so without thinking, I went and had the root canal. At that time, the dentist mentioned the molar and said that I should do a root canal on that one too to save the tooth. He was amazed that it did not hurt as I had like half a tooth there. I said ok and I moved on with my life.
Today, 9 years after that first root canal, I went and had the second root canal on the old molar. That molar that never hurt but was always a ticking bomb waiting to explode. The dentist told me they used different X-Rays 9 years ago and that he was happy I had come back and amazed it still did not hurt. I am about to turn 40 and with Saturn in Capricorn, I have to take care of my teeth, there is no looking the other way anymore. Yesterday, in my initial dental appointment, the dentist was quite surprised I knew exactly what was going on in my mouth. He said "you are pretty tuned in to your teeth". I smiled and I thought I´ve been working on fine tuning my intuition and my skills for the past five years so it would be funny to just be intuitive in one area of my life and not another so it makes sense I could feel my teeth and know it is time to pay a visit to the local dentist.
By now, you may be wondering why I am telling you this story. That is to say if you are still reading! The story of the molar is a story that shows how sometimes if something does not hurt, we keep it going even thought we know it is a ticking bomb. It is a story of knowing something is not healthy but because it is not toxic enough, we don´t take care of it. Now, think about those things in your life that you know are not longer needed or are not really healthy for you but because they don´t hurt, you just do the same you have always done and not change it. What if you decide to change it today? How would your life be different?
You may be in fear of taking action. You may think you are not brave enough to change your world, to rock that boat. All it takes is to decide to do it. To decide to take the first step. Sometimes we settle for less than we deserve because it does not hurt and we are afraid of change or go for something better. Don´t allow your ticking bomb to continue growing, don´t settle. Life is too short not to live it fully. No matter what your fear is, you have what it takes to conquer it. The Universe would not place a test if you don´t have the tools to pass it. Trust yourself, Trust the Universe. Trust the process.
All is well!
