I have mad a promise to myself this year to be more present in my life and to be more aware of my surroundings. You see my life mostly consisted of working (which I love) a ton, starting a new life (which I love), expanding on my career and doing things for others. I never had balance in any of this. This year it changes. I am going to balance things out and take the time to be present in my life. What I mean by that is to not be on automatic pilot anymore or in a rush to do the next thing and only choose to do things if they are to my highest good. I am a great mentor but sometimes I need to stop and listen to my own advise. One of the things I say to my clients is " this is your life, if it is not the way you want it, shame on you". We have total control of our lives and if it is not the way we want it then we should change it. It is never too late for change. We should never feel like it is too much work for us to change our lives either because then we are telling ourselves that we are not worth our own effort and time.
Soooo anyway with this all being said, the other day I was at Walmart (my favorite place... NOT) heading towards my car, I was enjoying the beautiful day and noticed there was a man looking at my car magnets. I have magnets for Soul To Soul on my car. He walked away slowly and headed towards his car that was near mine. As I started to approach my car he stopped and looked at me and then continued to walk to his car. The entire time he kept looking at me as if he wanted to say something. When I got to my car I noticed his mother was there in spirit. She said to me "do it". I said "do what"? She said "go talk to him". This whole time he is still just sitting in his car. I got in my car and I said to her "ok if I go over there what do you want me to say?". I do not like to just walk up to people and do an impromptu. So she started to talk to me and I notice that we are both in our cars now looking at each other. When things line up I know that they are meant to happen.
I got out of my car and went over to his. I stood about 3 feet away and asked if I could talk to him. He said yes and got out. He started to tear up before I even said anything. lol I have that effect on people. I said I noticed that you noticed the magnets on my car so I guess you know what I do. He said yes with more tears coming to his eyes. I told him your mother is here and she is sorry she left before your wedding but wanted you to know she was there and you looked so happy and handsome. She said that she was in the hospital with you when you went in because of cancer. Then his wife came in from spirit. I told him that his wife is here with us as well. I told him that she said "I am still going to keep our promise" and he just collapsed crying. I also told him that she said "do you remember Lily of the Valley?". He started to laugh. He told me that she pointed out once to him these little white flowers that she liked. One day he wanted to buy her flowers but could not remember what they looked like or what they were called. He went to a florist and picked Lily of the Valley and had the lady wrap them for him. He brought them home and she looked at them in a strange manor. He said "is there something wrong?". She said "were there to be flowers in there?". He said they are flowers. So that was always something special to them. He said to me " up until right now, I never believed in this stuff but deep down wanted it to be possible. Thank you for sharing your amazing gift."
