When I first embarked upon my focused and intentional spiritual odyssey the Universe supported all my needs. Once I committed, I heard the Angels instructions loud and clear.
Now this may because I was living in New York City at around the time of 911, or it may have been the stage I was in at that time. But, whatever the case, when I walked around the City my questions was loudly answered.
For instance, during my marital separation I needed help with the care of my daughter, who was slated to go to summer school. I was just starting a new job as well and my old support had collapsed.
But, while walking in meditation the answers flowed down effortly. I was advised to talk to Ailsa, another mother who volunteered at the school where all of our daughters were attending.
I didn’t even get my question out. All I said to Ailsa was, “Maya has to go to summer school…” And Ailsa replied, “I’ll pick her up. That’s not a problem.”
What a relief! I told her I would pay her, which I did, but she clearly did not care about the money. Ailsa loved Maya like her own, and the girls all got along and enjoyed each other’s company, especially after a half a day of school.
After working when I came by Ailsa’s home to pick Maya she would offer me and Maya dinner, and we would eat these amazing meals from the family’s native country, Dominican Republic.
What a gift that was, not to have to go home and cook. But, the other gift was our conversations. We talked about lives, where we were, and our visions for future. Ailsa’s husband was a superintendent for the luxury building in which they lived on the Upper Westside, and it was enlightening to hear about his career path. They also told me how they met and how long it took Ailsa to accept a first date, 2 years! 🙂
When we truly listen to The Divine and trust our intuition there’s no need to work in predicting the future. Everything lines up effortlessly for us, and we begin to comprehend the synchronistic events that are especially created for us.
Keep feeling your way through and trust what the Greater Universe has in Its Storehouse.
Stay well and faithful, my friends.
