In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to write something about love. When I pictured love, I thought of hearts. When I thought of hearts, I thought of my father. He and my mom recently came to visit and he ended up needing to have two stints put into his heart. Yes, this topic is very far from Valentine's Day, but it is how the thoughts in my mind work. Something like that, but much much faster. At any rate, thinking about my dad's heart procedure got me thinking about how it "just so happened" that he went in for the procedure that I am sure saved his life.
Without going into too much detail (those of you who know me know that I can make a long story quite longer), my dad had been down visiting and had been complaining about how tired he was getting. It was to the point where he couldn't walk from the Walmart parking lot and into the store without stopping. I was concerned because he has a history of heart problems and had previously had a bypass when I was a teenager. I asked him if he would like to see a doctor down here. He said that he would rather wait until he went back home to see his regular heart doctor. I even offered to try to find out at which heart practice one of my clients worked so that he could see somebody that I knew. Again, he said no. I felt like he really needed to go to the doctor, but knowing my father is a little stubborn sometimes, I knew not to force the issue. Instead, I put it out to the Universe.
In my prayers that Saturday night, I said, "If my dad is meant to see a heart doctor, please let her (my client) come in so that he can be examined." On Monday, I was at The Mystical Moon and had just finished up a read and walked out into the store. I looked up and the client was there. We exchanged greetings and she said, "I don't know why I am here, but I just felt like I needed to come in." Well I knew! This worried me and excited me at the same time. She agreed to see my dad in her office the next day, he had tests run right there, which resulted in worrisome results, and he had a heart catherization and two stints put in that Friday, almost a week to the day that I left it up to Spirit to send the heart doctor to him.
I know that this client was listening to her guides when she was led to the store. I believe that if she had not listened, then my father's heart procedure would have been an emergency one rather than an appointment-made one.
There were two very important things that happened to help this situation: 1. I had faith that I did not need to push the issue, I prayed on it, and the prayer was answered. 2. My client listened to her guides and went where she was led. Those two things are very hard to do in life. Sometimes we push and push because we want and feel a specific outcome when all we need to do is wait for the Universe to send us what is for our highest and best good.
That is my Valentine's Day message to all of you. Whatever it is that you are asking for or wanting, of course you can manifest it, but don't place limitations on it even if you "know" what you want. Ask your guides to guide you. And more importantly, listen when they do. Someone's life may depend on it.
Blessings and Love,
