Miraculous Encounter at the Bank
About to get dinner started realizing gee I wanted to get to the bank and the
post office today and look at the time. I pause.
My Thinking in a Pause:
What is the best thing for me to do right now?
My Listening in a Pause:
Don’t make this more than what it is. I’ll be back in plenty of time to make
dinner and this will be off my list.
My Following in a Pause:
I wanted to go to the bank first, but I am led to the post office first. No snags,
all is well. Zip to the bank drive-thru. My transaction is quick and efficient
which isn’t usually the case at this bank where I am ready to withdraw all my
money because of their poor customer service.
Unexpected Gift Following INspiration in a Pause
The teller, a young man, looks through the glass to let me know that I am
eligible for Premier Banking blah, blah, blah.
I have heard this spiel several times from others at this bank, but this time was
different. Why? This young man is truly present which is allowing him to be
truly helpful and I am drawn in!
A Truly Helpful Banking Experience!
I feel my heart softening and opening.
When is the last time you experienced that at a bank?
4 BENEFITS OF PAUSE BANKING:
I am willing to hear this young man out.
I see a person wanting to be truly helpful, he is clearly focused on doing his
job well, and I am moved to support him in this as it’s a rare event these days.
I feel a smile brightening my face ~ maybe the first smile all day.
SEEING SOMEONE’S VALUE
I truly see this young man and I value him as a person
He wasn’t just trying to get me to do something because it’s his job to get
customers to sign-up for this program. A present-kindness poured forth from
him and a genuine caring for me and my money. He asks if there was a
number the personal banker could reach me at and I gave him my number without reluctance.
WHEN ONE PERSON IS WILLING TO SEE ANOTHER,
WHEN ANOTHER IS WILLING TO BE SEEN,
WE RECOGNIZE OUR CONNECTION and
ALL I CAN SAY IS I HOPE YOU OPEN TO HAVING YOUR MIRACULOUS
EXPERIENCES BECAUSE MIRACLES ARE SO REAL compared to where we live
most of the time!
“You have a nice day,” he says in a way that resonates truly.
And you know, I am having a truly nice day!
