“When I went to school, they asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy.’ They said I didn’t understand the assignment and I said “You don’t understand life.”—John Lennon
Every day, I open my email to find the most amazing stories. I get pictures, tales of “coincidences” and incontrovertible evidence that the universe is just waiting for us to catch up, just waiting for us to begin using this energy that has always been available for our enjoyment and well-being.
A few months ago, when writing a piece about medical tourism, I met this inspiring woman named Amy B. Scher who went to India to get stem cell treatment and wrote a book called This is How I Save My Life. It’s a great book, she and I became email buddies and to make a long story short, she ended up reading E-Squared.
The other day, I got this email from her.
“I’ve been doing the experiments from the book with my mom and wife. We were a little nervous on the yellow butterfly day as we were traveling alllll day on a very, very desolate part of the I-5, often loathed for being the most disgusting drive in California. There is nothing but dirt, tumbleweeds, fast food restaurants and the smell of cows. Not conducive for yellow butterfly sightings.
About halfway through the trip, my wife and her tiny bladder were calling for a bathroom break. We pulled up to the only restaurant on this stretch of the road and she ran in. She came out with a small take-out box as she felt too bad using their restroom, but not buying something in return (even though we had literally just eaten). So, she bought a slice of peach pie. As she climbed in the car, she opened the box and I immediately screamed. Unbeknownst to her, the peach pie she picked from behind the counter just to “buy something” had a little butterfly perfectly centered on top.
And so it goes to show you…..even on the I-5, in the middle of no-butterfly land, the Universe can make it happen if only your intent is strong enough.
Thanks, Amy, for sharing and thanks for your fabulous book.
