“Take off your shoes and let yourself go.”–Elvin Bishop
My mission remains the same. To be in service to the new story. The story that reminds us we’re all connected–to each other, to the natural world and to the big cosmic mystery.
One of the ways I fulfill my purpose is by sharing miracles, by pointing out that we are a lot more than what we see with our physical eyes.
I’ve been traveling lately and haven’t kept up with my sharing. So, before I take off again on yet another marvelous adventure, here are a few stories that recently popped into my inbox.
1. “Thank you so much for writing Thank and Grow Rich! It’s been an awesome, awesome read. I had to write to you and tell you what happened to me.
“I’ve been trying to sell my not-so-pretty house for a year, with no luck. My boyfriend died of cancer about 2 years ago and left me the house that we were working on. It still needed lots and lots of work. It has several holes between the inside and the outside of the house, one that is even big enough for a raccoon to crawl through. I had a black snake crawl over my feet in my kitchen last week (its still under the freezer as far as I know). The ceiling leaks in several places and the pipes freeze constantly in the winter and they are even located IN the house! Its been rough, loosing him, and now maintaining a house by myself. In the year that I’ve had it for sale, I’ve probably had 3 people look at it, total.
“I started reading your book about 3 weeks ago and I finally started getting what I’ve been doing wrong! I get it! I finally realized why the universe pours out blessings on me some days and at other times gives me the cold shoulder. ITS ME! ITS BEEN ME ALL ALONG! Wow. I am now grateful for everything, even when things don’t seem to go right. I’m using many different methods to change my vibration (your next book, I hope) and changing my poor-me attitude. I wake up every morning looking for the amazingly awesome things that will happen to me today.
“In this past week my house has been shown 4 times, twice in one day! Today, the realtor called me with not one, but 2 offers! The 2 buyers ended up in a bidding war. The winner (makes you think its Ebay) was happy to offer me $8.000 more than his original offer which was a little over my selling price! I’m still in shock. I walked into my 3rd floor office this morning and a feather was on the floor by my desk, which is my symbol that the universe is looking out for me. Unbelievable. My friends ask me where I’m going to live and I tell them that God will point me in the right direction. It’s nice to turn everything over to God.
“Thank you, thank you for your insightfulness and having the nerve to write down what you believe in a book for all the world to read. Superhero’s are the ones that don’t care what other people think, they do what they know is right.”
2. “First, THANK YOU. I think of you and your journey at least once a day as it has kept me “afloat” now for several years as a cheerleader of sorts. I have read and re-read all of your books regarding “placing an order” with the universe. Since I have been consciously aware of playing the game, I have enjoyed events that would seem IMPOSSIBLE to others. Straight out of the gate, I was in a movie with Billy Crystal and Bette Midler playing the violin. I had been searching and searching for an orchestra for 10 years before that point and then the door was opened to this wonderful land of miracles once I started saying YES to the signs and feelings! It’s been quite a journey since then and folks can enjoy all my manifestations via my website and IMDB pages. Here’s Katy Harper’s website.”
3. “Thank & Grow Rich is the sunrise of my day and my manifestation is moving like a snowball downhill. Here’s the latest:
#a. At 55 I look better than ever – except I was overly focused on my upper arms – I said to myself, “Universe show me something new to tone my arms.” A few days later my girlfriend, a professional track coach world and American record holder, implored me to get involved in Master’s Track. “You’re so fit and strong. How about you try the throws?” So out we went I threw the shot put, threw the discus, and threw the javelin and I was pretty good for a beginner. One month later we had a heat wave in northern California and I confidently wore a sleeveless top in 94 degrees. Magic! Who takes up track at 55?
#b. I am about 5 weeks into training for the throws in Track and Field and have found an unbelievable 75 year old throws coach. After our first session he asked if I would mind small group and I ended working out with a 15 year old freshman phenom. It wasn’t bad but I wanted to train alone. During my T&GR time this morning I thought I really want to train alone today. Sure enough the young man never showed and I had the trainer all to myself.
#c. I’ve been acquiring throws equipment as my commitment grows but to date I haven’t bought any practice javelins as they are the most expensive piece of equipment. This morning I said, “Someone is going to give me practice javelins.” Towards the end of the training session today my coach said, “Why don’t you keep a couple of my practice javelins so you can keep working until we see each other again.” WHAT!!”
So, that’s how we roll, folks!
And thanks for whoever sent me this awesome video!!!
