A Marvellous Week
Things started off small. I am not a big ‘angel’ person but I do possess a pair of tiny angel earrings. Over the years I have become quite fond of them. It was therefore a little annoying to discover that I had lost one of them during a day out. I had a fairly thorough search to no avail. It was apparent that I had to bid that earring adieu and I did so with a slight twinge which quickly dissipated, mentally I just let it go. I did think I would like to find that earring but if not, then so be it.
The following day, as I walked through the lounge room for the umpteenth time that day, on the floor at my feet was my small silver angel earring. It was a grand feeling to be able to place it back in my jewellery box with the other angel. There was no way I could have missed seeing it and I have no explanation for how it suddenly appeared in so obvious a place. I am sure there could be a simple explanation but, for me, this was a small miracle, an answer to a request and the letting go of the outcome.
The second marvellous occurrence is a little more involved and unusual. I had a dream about a goose that I followed down a corridor to a very large and oddly decorated egg. Whenever I dream of an animal or insect I look up the attributes of the creature concerned in Ted Andrews book; Animal Speak. There are about two pages on the goose in his book. Included is the information that writing with a goose feather quill can assist a writer, in his or her craft, in various ways. Idly I thought to myself that I would love a feather quill but that it would have to have a biro on the end as I would find a fountain pen tedious to work with.
I had lent several books I had written to a couple, friends of my husband. One of those books I really wanted back as it is out of print and I have only a few copies left. They really appreciated that book and wanted to purchase two copies of it. I decided to let them keep the copy they had and I also gave them one extra copy, leaving me with just one copy.
My husband met up with his friend and came home with a small package and a much appreciated thank you card for me. It is such a lovely thing to get an unexpected gift and I happily opened the package to find a pink box with silver writing that proclaimed inside was a feather quill pen of vintage design. I couldn’t believe my eyes and opened the box to find a beautifully painted feather attached to a small biro. The feather was painted with cherry blossoms on it, so pretty.
Once again I had, without any prolonged emotion attached, thought that I would like something only to have it appear within just over a week. I wish I could convey the manner of these askings, how it doesn’t include emotion or expectation, just a simple request put out into the world, knowing that something is always listening, and that whatever is listening is a loving energy.
The third marvellous occurrence was just as surprising. My third book in the Waking Wisdom Trilogy is complete and nearing publication. This book, Little Pearls and Little Gems, is all the channelled wisdom teachings I have been gifted over recent years. I had informed my husband that this work deserved to have some marketing done, politely giving him a heads up that I was about to spend more of our savings. One morning in my email box was a correspondence from Thorpe Bowker, the business where I purchase my ISBN numbers for my books.
The email offered a marketing package that cost $450 for what sounded as if it reached a large base of book buyers, in both magazine and electronic format. It was attractive. When I got to the cost though I thought it was a bit much. I could feel the urging from spirit, I had thought of marketing and how I would require help as it certainly not my greatest skill. I literally said out loud; ‘yeah right, you (the universe) provide me with $450 within 24 hours and I will purchase that marketing package. Then I forgot all about it.
About an hour, maybe two, later I decided I had best do some online banking to see how much we had spent in recent days on a renovation we have been undertaking. I logged on and checked the balances in our accounts. One account had more in it than I expected so I went into that account to discover that $450 had been deposited by the Australian Tax Office. No, it wasn’t part of our tax return and was not something either of us had been expecting although we do know why we got it.
The timing was immaculate.
Of course the real question we are all asking at this stage is why haven’t I won the lottery, or even better created a peaceful world! Since my three little miracles I have been thinking about this. My understanding, from teachings received, indicate there is no difficulty, from the perspective of that which creates, with regard to the size of the miracle. Therefore the difficulty or obstacle must be in the form of the asking.
When I thought about it I actually know of four people who have won the lottery. With regard to two of those people I heard their thoughts about the process. Both these people weren’t in great need, in fact one was very wealthy. One was the neighbour of friends. She stated that she happened to see what the first prize was one week and simply thought she would like to win it. It wasn’t given any further thought and there was no emotion attached. Similar with the wealthy gentleman, just bought an instant ticket thinking it would be nice to win and didn’t think about it again. Neither seemed to have any doubts about their suitability to win money, or thoughts that the odds made it impossible. The money was there to be won so why not win it? They didn’t nag at the universe, nor make promises about what they would do if they won. They simply said they wanted it then left it alone, no emotion attached, it didn’t really matter one way or the other.
Perhaps then it is my own beliefs about winning large sums of money, the difficulty of it, the not feeling I am ‘good’ enough in some way, the worry about what I would do with it, the constant refrain about why I need it, that keep the event from taking place. In essence, as the observer and creator of this reality, I have already judged and condemned myself with regard to larger miracles. Do I also think that there is not enough to go around and others need it more than me? In fact there are many beliefs and emotions attached to the subject when in truth it is as easy as getting a quill or an earring back or $450. The difficulty is in my beliefs and disbeliefs once again.
Is it your beliefs that limit your experience of miracles too? If we realise our beliefs are limiting our experiences of miracles then we should be able to change our beliefs and therefore change our experience of life to something more miraculous, harmonious and loving. I am going to give it a try.
