My new job title: deployer of miracles
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it,”– J.M Barrie
“Soooooo,” it always begins, at a cocktail party or a gathering of strangers. “What do you do?”
Most of us have a suitable answer we can pull out of our pocketbooks. Usually it’s a job—I’m an accountant or a teacher. Or maybe a zookeeper.
I, too, have that pat answer at the ready. It’s simple enough to tell people what I do during a few hours of every day. I write.
But every now and then when I’m feeling mischievous or wanting to start an unusual conversation, I’ll say something like, “I’m a miracle deployer.”
Deploy, according to the dictionary, is to position into readiness, to bring into action, to distribute strategically.
And that’s what happens when we talk about anything–be it miracles or woe is me! We deploy it into action.
That’s why I only want to share stories of miracles. And love. And possibility.
That, my friends, is what I really do.
And why I like to share stories here on the blog. Here are a couple that recently materialized into my inbox:
“I always walk my dog in the morning after I wake up, and during the walk, I usually buy a newspaper with cash, but this day, I didn’t have cash with me and was in too much of a hurry to go and get some, so as I took the dog out, I said to the Universe that it would be really nice if I could be provided with some cash to buy the newspaper.
“Then I took Pugsy out to our garden (which we share with 4 other households, but not very many people go out there), as usual. To my delight, I found a huge pile of coins in the middle of the lawn! It was enough to buy at least 2 newspapers. I said thanks and then took the dog out of the apartment complex and bought the newspaper at a kiosk.
“The next day, I said to the Universe, “I sure would be nice if I could find some more money today too.” I didn’t find a pile of money in the middle of the garden, but I found one-tenth that amount outside that someone had thrown away with a foreign exchange receipt (we live next door to a foreign exchange shop). I was delighted again and said “thank you” and went to buy my newspaper.
“Thank you! I never thought E2 experiments would work for me so did quite a lot of Byron Katie work to enquire into my negative thoughts just to be able to even proceed and when I get over the shock of it’s success I know it will change my life.
“For experiment number 4 you did suggest picking something small to manifest but when I thought about what I really wanted there was such an energy surrounding my desire I thought what the heck. I wanted a 200 year right of access across our land, by two neighbors, extinguished within 48hours to give my family some privacy. We had been talking with our neighbors about the possibility of extinguishing the access for over two years but the middle neighbor was never keen. That night I had a vivid dream that explained to me why I had chosen, not just this but every property I had ever had, with a right of access across it.
“Despite being happily married with two beautiful children, I had left a right of access open in my heart for a first love of some 35 years ago. The next day I noticed and heard a buzzard flying in circles above me, the same happened the next day and on the third I got a sense that I needed to visit an antique centre not far from me, only to stumble across a stuffed buzzard on one of the stalls. I got the message this buzzard is stuffed, dead, gone.
“A second dream that night ended with the question, isn’t it about time you stopped this. I got it in an instant and guidance told me that there was nothing else I needed to do. So, not 48 hours but just 90 hours later I had a knock on the door from one of the neighbors saying they had been talking to the other neighbor and his son and they both agreed they didn’t need access over our land any more. I contacted the solicitors the very next day, papers have been signed and I’m still dancing round the house. I am so glad I didn’t ask for a bunch of flowers as suggested. Yours still in shock–Julia xxx.
