Dragonfly Medicine

Dragonfly Medicine

I got a dose of dragonfly medicine yesterday as I captured this magical dragonfly pic. It  lew past me and off in the distance.  I asked it to come back so I could take a pic, then it flew right over me and allowed me to capture this beautiful pic.

Dragonfly represents transcendence, transformation, change, truth, reflections, mirrors for internal growth, mastering your emotions, mastering your thoughts, transcending limiting belief patterns, being an overcomer, and the realization that things are not always as they seem.  It represents breaking down illusions and an integration and balance of the mental and emotional bodies.  It can also mean seeing a situation for the truth of what it really is/means in your life.  With the dragonfly comes wisdom and enlightenment.

You will know the dragonfly is here to assist you because you will FEEL it.  They may show up in your dreams; suddenly appear from nowhere; appear in your experience in multitudes; land on you; buzz around you; or, like me, you have communications with it and it honors your requests.  Most of all, the experience will come with a knowing that you are being “spoken to”.  Follow it and don’t doubt yourself or your signs from from your Higher Power.

Anytime a symbol comes at you three times in a short time frame (for me it’s typically within a week or less), then the Universe or your Higher Self is trying to get your attention.  If so, you are being asked to wake up and search or inquire within about the meaning it has for you and your life.  The closer together (in time frame) the symbol comes, the stronger the message from spirit is.  Some call this synchronicity and it’s a powerful way to communicate with divine (Spirit or your Higher Self; the Universe; All That Is; your Higher Power; or what ever your idea of divine is)

In this instance, the dragonfly delivered the *exact* message I needed in regard to an inner conflict I’ve been having about a recent falling out with someone I love, care about, and miss dearly.  I’m grateful for the ways Spirit communicates with me through my environment.

Have you noticed any symbol, animal, or message coming into your experience lately?  What does it mean to you?  I’d love to hear about it in the comments.

Wishing you a day filled with magic and synchronicity.

Stay strong and shine on.

The Cleanse That Changed My Life (Wellness Wednesday)

MasterCleanseBookOne of my biggest ‘aha’ moments in saving my health, was when I went on this cleanse.  My brain was having seizure activity and my Neurologist wanted me to go on an anti-seizure medication.  This video explains about the research I did, why I chose an alternative route, and my experience with the Master Cleanse.  This cleanse quite literally changed my life.

Prior to doing the cleanse I was tired all the time, fatigued, and felt like my head was in the clouds – or a veil of… smog was taking over my brain.  I couldn’t think clearly, I couldn’t track conversations, I could barely comprehend what I was reading, and I was getting lost in the town I grew up in.  It was awful. » Read more..

My Transformation 2013-2014, A Pictorial Review

“I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself….”

I was nominated by a few people on Facebook to share some pictures of me that make me feel beautiful.  I’m posting them here, because I want to also share why they make me feel beautiful, in hopes of inspiring others: 1.  I was very, very sick… and also very wounded inside.  I was emotionally messed up and, truth is, I hated myself.  I had so many » Read more..

The Light and Love of God

  • I am the Light and Love of God

    It’s interesting… Because, up to this point, during my treatments at the Ayurvedic hospital, I’ve been chanting in my mind, “The Light & Love of God has cured me”. Then yesterday while I was chanting that I realized… If I’m still hanging on to the thought or vibration of needing to be cured, then that’s what I’m creating every single day a version of me that still needs to be cured. I know I was saying has cured me.. but the truth is, if I were cured, I wouldn’t be thinking about being cured at all, I would just be living my life. So, I taught my doggy a new trick!

    The next day, I changed my chant. At first, I started out with, “I am love”… and then I thought, “Why am I limiting myself by changing this to simply that I am love? What am I really?” Before, I was saying that the light of love of God has cured me, but then I realized that actually, I AM the light and love of God and when I vibrate THAT, then there is no such thing as anything that needs to be cured, because the light and love of God is pure and whole, just as it is.

    So that became my new mantra during my sessions: “I am the Light and Love of God”. And that, my friends, is when I started to see some real change (okay, okay, there were some other energy techniques I employed that I feel played a role as well, but that’s for another day ha ha).

    In what ways may your limiting beliefs be limiting your progress?

    Love and Blessings to you <3

Divine Deliverance!

20131102-142203.jpg

Today, I seated myself to lunch at the lovely organic restaurant, Rasa Dhatu. Shortly after, a couple was seated at a table nearby. I placed my order and began to read.

A while later, while I was still waiting on my food, the waiter delivered a plate to the nearby couple (who ordered after I did). The man apparently ordered the same dish I had ordered. Realizing they were getting served before me, I simply asked my divine to resolve the situation; knowing all would resolve.

Seconds later, the waiter slowed in his tracks and got a look on his face, like, “wait a minute, that’s not right.  He back-tracked to the man’s table and asked, “You did order this, right?” The man replied, “Yes, perfect!”, not raising a hand to touch his plate yet.

The waiter then walked to the counter and looked at his order tickets, then he went back to the man and retrieved the plate, apologizing and informing the man that the plate was mine; I ordered first.  Soon, the waiter lay the untouched plate before me, with an apology.

Coincidence? Bwaaaha ha ha haa!!

Life is so full of magic and wonder and beauty… all there waiting for you to realize it.  I never had to say a word.  My divine took care of it all.

Ask your divine for EVERYTHING!!! Nothing is too big, and nothing is too small <3

How can your divine help you, if you don’t ask? How can your divine deliver if you don’t believe?

Thank you, Spirit!

Sky Dude? Or An Over-Active Imagination?

This was taken in Tirruvanamalai, while sitting in front of Mount Arunachala.  Does this remind you of an angel or of any particular deity?  Is it a random entity?  Or just a highly active imagination?

What do YOU think?!

If you look closely you can even see the outline of… wings!

Experiencing God

IMG_6302 Previously, I shared my experience with you about the phenomenon of the divine holding the coin to the wall… and I’m sure this was really hard for most of you to believe, having not experienced it yourself.  I was actually able to get some videos of this phenomenon at a different site; the Nandi bull in Mysore.

I’m sure it may still be hard for some to believe.  I showed one of these videos to a friend here in Mysore, and even seeing a video, she refused to believe there wasn’t some trick behind it.  She was just certain that there was tar on the bull, or that it was magnetized.  It’s unfortunate that her mind wouldn’t let her believe… because it’s such a beautiful, sacred experience.

If you ever get the chance to come to India, bring coins with you.. because this is one experience you must have before you leave; especially if you lack in faith.

Here’s a video of me, channeling my divine to accept my offering.  It’s one of the most amazing experiences of my life.  Notice, in the second video, you can see the coin sliding beneath my finger-tips, so it’s evident that the bull is not magnetized or tarred:

 

Here is my friend, Bala, during his first experience of this phenomenon:

 

And my friend, Raphaela:

One person said they felt electricity come through their arm.  I don’t remember what the other said.  Personally, I felt heat come through my arm.  Thank you to my beautiful friends for being a testimony to the divine for the world to see.  Thank you to Spirit for allowing the recording and flowing through on this day <3

If you lack in fath, see how you lack in faith.  Ask your divine to reveal itself to you; to give you an experience that you can’t deny; an experience that you can carry with you for a lifetime and never doubt again.

One Man’s Trash Is… Worth A Beating?

My day is full of love and light!!  It rained all day.  Rain is a blessing.  A kind man offered me a free ride home on the back of his scooter so I didn’t have to walk in the rain.  On the way, it started to rain really hard so we had to pull over and wait under a tree until the rain let up.IMG_6901

Across the street I saw two men fighting.. over trash.  That was a sobering experience.  To think that trash can be so valuable that it’s worth fighting over.  As I watched from the other side of the road, I began to give both men distance Diksha. They were getting physical, slapping and shoving one another, and then one of them picked up a big rock and raised it as if he was going to bash the other guy in the head with it.  I turned my head, I couldn’t look.

As I drew down even stronger forces of energy, channeling it toward these two men, I could feel my hands heat up while the energy emanated from them.  “Good”, I thought, “Something is making it’s way over there”.  While I continued to send energy their way, I prayed for their peace and prosperity; then I prayed for Spirit to break up the fight and resolve it fairly.  I urged for the bag to be broken up and divided fairly.

Suddenly, a bigger man from my side of the street started hollering at them, then he crossed the street, stepped in and broke up the fight.

I gave thanks, and about that time, it also stopped raining, so the driver took off.  As we passed the three men, the large bag was being opened and one of the me was taking items out of it.  Perhaps they were making a fair division?  Who knows.

As I climbed the stairs to my apartment, showing gratitude to my divine, I realized… it wasn’t just the man that broke up the fight that Spirit was expressing through… Spirit was expressing through all four of us… Interacting with itself…

It kinda blew my mind a little bit lol.

Was this timing divinely orchestrated so that the energy work and prayer would take place?  Or would the man have intervened anyway?  Nobody knows, but it sure leaves one to wonder at the magical possibilities of life!

Later, I got notice that a package arrived, then another kind man gave me a ride to the mail place.  I was elated to receive a box with my favorite chocolate and an awesome water bottle and baggies.  Ziplock baggies!!  What a luxury item to have in this country!!  Great for keeping the ants out of my chocolate, ha ha ha!!

Love and Blessings to you!

Money Talks

RupeeHello beautiful people!  Yesterday as I walked to my panchakarma appointment, I found four coins on the ground amongst a bunch of motorcycles.  I knew immediately upon picking them up that they were meant for someone else, so I tucked them away in a separate compartment in my wallet; knowing the divine would reveal this person to me later in the day and that I would recognize that person when s/he showed up.

Bear in mind that in some parts of India, people in the streets will often ask for money, but that’s not been a common experience for me in Mysore.  Children have asked for American coins or quarters, but they do not generally ask for money.

As I was leaving the treatment place a boy was standing outside the fence.  I was in the process of calling a friend when he said hello.  I quickly said hi before dialing the last number.  The boy patiently stood there during the entire phone conversation, which was odd (this is not typical behavior in my experience).  Before I ever hung up the phone, I already knew he was the one to whom I was to give the money.

When I got off the phone I looked at the boy and, with his limited English, he said, “Please.  Money.”  He didn’t look poor, but it’s really not for me to judge; I knew he was to be the recipient of the coins.  I asked him if he speaks English.  He gave me a confused look, almost with a brief expression of fear behind it, and remained wordless.  I smiled, open my wallet, fetched the coins and gave them to him.  His face lit up, he smiled back, then we both went our separate ways.

A beautiful example of the divine working through one person to help another.  Who knows what the boy needed the money for.  Maybe he was taking it to help his grandmother.  Maybe he needed something for school.  Maybe he said a prayer and this experience was to deepen his faith, or, maybe the experience was to deepen mine (or yours, through my sharing).  Perhaps he simply had a strong desire for a sweet, or something, and he put that out to the Universe and it was returned through me.

Who knows?  It’s really not up to me to figure out.  I can only speak for my own experience, and for me, it was an honor to allow Spirit to flow through me to another.  It literally made my day.  I left that encounter with a hop and a skip in my step, in awe of how the divine had orchestrated this entire process to fulfill this boy’s need or desire.  I marveled at how perfectly orchestrated everything had to be in order for Spirit to flow through me; from the timing of when I left the house to the timing of when the person got off the motorcycle and dropped the coins, to the precise timing that I was leaving my appointment – even right down to the fact that the divine knew that I would save the coins and give them to the right person instead of keeping them for myself.

How magical is THAT?!!

A Dog With A Heart!

IMG_6220 I was walking down the street the other day and this dog came up to me with the most unusual behavior (for an Indian dog).  Dogs in India are not overly friendly like dogs in the United States.  They are typically left to their own devices for survival, are quite self-reliant, and not usually interested in people.

This dog, however, was different.  He came up to me with the biggest grin on his face – like he’d just found his long-lost friend!  He was anxious and panting, wagging his tail, going in circles and doing the light-footed happy-doggy-dance.  He was also talking to me.

Yes, he was talking to me.  He wasn’t talking to me with words like you and I talk, IMG_6223though.  He was talking to me with consciousness.  Sort of like… communicating to me with thought.  He told me he wanted me to do energy work on him and to give him a blessing (a form of energy work where I act as a channel for the divine to flow through me into the recipient – much like what is described here – just with a little different energy).  He told me he was diseased and needed help.  All the while he is telling me this, he is actively jumping up and down, pawing at my thighs; rolling on the ground; running in circles, etc.

I told him I will gladly grant his wish, but I would please like to have a picture of the heart on his forehead first.  He suddenly stopped pawing at me, stopped jumping up and down, and posed for the picture.  First he sat, then he laid.

I took his picture, then I brought divine energy down through me and into him.  Aware of the peopleIMG_6575 nearby watching me intently, I extended my hands out above his head, and gave him a blessing.  As soon as he received the blessing, he thanked me and calmly walked away.

I was honored to allow the divine to express through me this day, but this dog was an expression of the divine for me, just as much as I was a channel of the divine for him.  You see, it was a test for me.  A test of my courage; of my faith; of my self acceptance and of my willingness to be a testimony for the divine by my actions.  I’ve struggled with self-acceptance most of my life.  Particularly in the area of my divine gifts.  I’ve denied these parts of myself most of my life.  So this truly was a test for me.

I was placed in a situation where I could deny my divine gifts, for fear of judgment or I could accept the task and let go of the attachment to what other people think of me.  I was quite aware of the people on the street staring at the entire process.  It would have been really easy to let my ego destroy this moment; to succumb to fear that people would judge me for being weird or different. Yet, had I taken that route, I wouldn’t be living for my divine. So what’s more important?  God placed me in that situation at that precise moment so that I could be a channel for Him.  Who am I to say no to this task?

That would kind of be like saying no to my best friend with a 104 degree temperature, calling me for a ride to the emergency room, because I’m afraid people will laugh at my driving on the way – absurd!  So why should I let fear get in the way of serving my divine?

Trust me, several times a week a local native stops me and asks me why I am doing what I’m doing.  In fact, it happened just today.  The conversation usually ends with him walking away, shaking his head.  I know I’m different.  I know people don’t understand me or my actions.. but I Am That I Am.  At times, I just grin and know what I know and remain in my happy little state of bliss at the magical wonderland that I traverse!  At other times, my ego gets a grip and it gets me down (but not for long, ha!).  I’m learning to accept my gifts, to no longer succumb to the fear, to live for my divine knowing that it’s not my problem that others don’t understand me.

Some people say that dog is man’s best friend.  I say man’s best friend is the divine.  Without God, we are nothing.  Without God, we have nothing.  God is what MansBestFriendmakes life worth living.  A lot of people are still figuring this out.  How many of you feel lonely?  Or have a sense of longing for a life partner?  How many times have you gotten that life partner only to have the sense of longing or loneliness return after a few months into the relationship?  Maybe you think marriage will solve your problem, so you get married and everything feels great for a while but then the longing returns.  Then you convince yourself that this new truck you want if you could just have it, you would truly be happy so you buy it and everything feels great!  For a while… until the longing returns again.  So then you decide to ‘become someone’ and get a career (after all, you have this nice new truck to pay for, ha ha) so you go to college and get a degree, find a great job and THEN, finally, you feel completely fulfilled… for a while… until the longing returns.  So you get a dog… something that can’t talk back to you, or criticize you, a being that will always give you love.. yes!  This is right.  And everything is great!!  For a while… until the longing returns.  Again.  How long have you been seeking?  How many years have you been moving on to the next step, and the next, and the next, trying to fill this void within you?  What you are longing for, is a deep, connected relationship with the divine.

Maybe not in the way you’ve been taught… I’m not talking about a forged relationship where you simply believe there is a God because you’re told there is a God and you should have blind faith.  No.  I’m talking about EXPERIENCING the Divine Presence in your life… where you FEEL the divine’s Presence every single day and you experience the divine’s Presence in all throughout the day.  It’s the most beautiful, magical existence!  This can be your reality… but it requires effort on your behalf.

Let me ask you this:  How long would your best friend (or girlfriend or spouse) be your best friend (or girlfriend or spouse) if you gave him or her the same amount of attention that you give God?  How often would your best friend come around TalkToGodif you talked to him/her the same way that you talk to God?  Well then… why would you expect any less of God?  The divine is the most important relationship in your life, dedicate time to that relationship and bask in the miracles that infiltrate your life as a result!

Let your divine be your best friend.  Talk to God!  Talk to your divine in everything you say and do.  Consult Him like you would consult your best friend in everything you say or do!  Your divine is right there with you all the time… you live in Him and He lives in  you… but He is just as dependent on you as you are on Him, when it comes to connecting.  How can the divine possibly show you He is there, if you’re not talking to the Him? How can the divine show you s/he is active in your life if you don’t have a line of communication established and are listening for a reply?

If you had no eye-sight, and you were sitting across the room from your best friend, how would you know your best friend was in the room unless you spoke to him and listened for a response?  It’s the same with God.  Talk to God and listen for a response.  Open your spiritual ears!

No… dog is not man’s best friend.  Man’s best friend is the divine.

Take a moment to talk to God right now.  Tell your divine that you want to strengthen your relationship with him/her, and ask your divine to show you how to do this.  When you get a response, be sure to show gratitude to your divine; then come back and share your experience!

Love to you <3!

God Flows Through You… Just Ask!

ChannelGodOne day, when my daughter was little, I was driving her to school and she said she felt sick to her tummy.  Without telling her what I was doing, I placed my right hand on her belly, then prayed and asked God to use me as His vessel and to flow through me and make her better. All of a sudden she got this look of amazement on her face and turned to me and said, “Thanks mom!”.  I asked, “What for?”.  She said the sick feeling was gone and she felt better.  Call it coincidence if you want, but I know better.

You see, many nights I did this same technique while she was sleeping.  She had severe eczema and asthma.  At night the itching was quite severe and we had many sleepless nights in our house.  On the nights where she was visibly miserable, I would place her in bed with me, and then I would pray and ask God use me as His vessel; to flow through me and give her relief.  Then I would place my hand slightly above the affected area, and the itching would stop.  Sometimes I would even feel heat come through my hand, but not always.  Just because you can’t feel it or see it doesn’t mean it’s not real!

Nobody taught me how to do this.  It was my natural instinct.  I followed it and it worked.  Today, when I do energy work, I GodFlowsThroughYouusually feel the energy physically come through me.  It’s not just me… and it’s not just for ‘chosen ones’.  Everybody has this capability.  The divine flows through everyone…  yes, even you!

What if I had denied those instincts, thinking it was impossible, and never even tried?  What if somebody told me I was crazy for thinking such things were possible?  Look at all I would have missed out on in life, due to a closed mind.  Connecting with God and allowing God to flow through me… that’s the good stuff!  That’s what makes life worth living!  It’s worth more than all the riches and jewels in the entire world combined!  It’s the stuff dreams are made of!

AskGodNever let anybody tell you that your reality isn’t real.  Trust in your instincts and follow your heart.  God is amazing.   He works through each and every one of us!  All we have to do is ask.

Ask your divine to flow through you today; ask Him to give you visibility of how He wants to flow through you to help others.  Then trust in what happens next; it is not your imagination.

Finally, give thanks to your divine for answering your prayer and come back and share your experience here; I can’t wait to hear all about it!

Happy channeling!  Love to you!

Apartments & Miracles!

I just finished a 45 minute concentration at the Matrimandir. Now I’m heading out to Tirruvanamalai. Thirruvanamalai is the spiritual center of India!! Mount Arunachala is there. “The scriptures tell us, and the sages and saints have testified that this Holy Hill is the form of Lord Siva Himself” (1).

Here is my driver, Paleni. He will be taking me the rest of the way. Through Tirruvanamalai for a couple days, then on to a waterfall, then on to Mysore, India. Yeah!

I prayed for a driver that is inexpensive and can get me there safely without troubles. A friend of a friend was kind enough to hook me up with a devotee here and I saved a significant amount of money.

20130727-142051.jpg

This friend sent his driver and is also setting me up with a room on the cheap. Nice!!

Then my phone ran out of Internet. There’s no place to charge it where I’m at & I can’t charge it on my own because I’m not a local. I contacted a man in Mahabalipuram that I’d met four weeks ago. He was very kind and showed me the town and didn’t ask for one penny. He also gave me some pointers on dealing with the locals.

He told me to never show my money and don’t carry much on me. He said if I see something I want then I can go back & get cash. He gave me an amount to counter offer anytime someone tries to sell me something. He told me I paid too much for a pamphlet at a tourist attraction. He was there but he said he couldn’t tell me in front if them or they would make trouble for him later.

He also walked me down to the post office to get prices and he shipped my belongings to me in the USA so I don’t have to bother traveling with them. A very kind, honest man.

Anyway, I still had his business card, so I phoned him and asked if he still has my credit card info. He said no, but he would charge it to his credit card and I can wire him money when I get to Mysore. How cool is that?! I don’t even know this guy!! It’s the divine flowing through him!

I love the way my divine provides for me before I even realize I need it! How perfectly everything had to align for me to meet this very man who is helping me along my journey now <3 Life is so magical!! Thank you, Spirit, for all the grace you give me <3 <3 <3. God ROCKS!! I am totally being carried through and provided for every single moment of every single day. What more could anyone ever ask for? Honestly? So, my apartment! The friend of a friend put us up in a really nice place with very reasonable prices. Its a lodge, but its really more like an apartment! Here is the bedroom: 20130728-083017.jpg

The living room:

The foyer:

20130728-083458.jpg

And the kitchen:

20130728-083552.jpg

When I looked out the back door, I was greeted with this great big smiley face. See it?!

20130728-093411.jpg

The friend that connected me to the helper in Thirruvanamalai? I just met him in November of last year. Who would’ve thunk he’d be helping me on my trip to India?

I am so incredibly grateful for these people’s help. The man even showed us three different places in different price ranges so we could choose. He made sure we were close to the ashram and had A/C of we wanted it. We opted to go without; it’s less expensive.

Suggestion: Pray and ask your divine to show you how He is aligning you with the right people to bring about miracles in your life daily.

Blessings and Love,
Jodi

Do You See What I See?

Yet another beautiful miracle in my life!! I’m a total rock hound, and I generally collect a rock from where ever I travel. Why not? It’s a unique gift from God. It produces no waste. It will not take up a land-fill, it connects me to Mother Earth, and it’s all natural lol. In fact, I can even make Stone Soup out of them if I ever need to (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/043933909X/ref=aw_1st_sims_2?pi=SL500_SS115).

Today I went to the Matrimandir in Auroville, India.

20130726-160329.jpg

While I was on the trail to the viewpoint of the Matrimandir in Auroville…

20130726-154342.jpg

20130726-154152.jpg

20130726-154303.jpg

… I kept praying for a heart-shaped rock. I saw so many rocks, leaves and nature-bits that were heart-shaped.. The song, “All You Need Is Love” kept coming into my consciousness.

20130726-154419.jpg

20130726-155640.jpg

When I got to the end of the path, look what waiting for me! How amazing is that?!!

20130726-152506.jpg

I found this right at the viewpoint, directly in front if the Matrimandir; to the right in this picture:

20130726-155828.jpg

I am just feeling so blessed!! Thank you, God, for all the beautiful miracles you bring into my life; for the grace that flows through and around me! <3

It doesn’t stop there, though. The entire experience has changed my consciousness. When I got back to my hotel room, the messages of love just continued. Do you see what I see?

20130726-160523.jpg

Ask your divine to give you the ability to see the beauty, magic and wonder in the simple things in life. Ask your divine to bring about a simple miracle in your life with the next few days, and to make you aware of this miracle. Thank the divine for all the beautiful miracles you’ve had thus far.

God is right there, waiting for us to dial His number. Once you dial, why hang up the line? Why not stay connected all day long? Talk to God about everything you see, do and feel!

You know that feeling you get when something happens great in your life and you’re all excited and you can’t to wait to run and tell your total best friend?! Yeah, that feeling. Let that be your passion toward God.

And you know how, when something icky happens and you’re down in the dumps and just want your total best friend to comfort you (be it your spouse or mom or your best buddy)? In these moments, talk to God.

Turn to God the same way you would rush to your best friend with exciting news, or to your mom/spouse for comfort. Then be amazed at the relationship that builds between the two of you!

Love to you <3

Coins & Miracles & Faith, Oh My!

20130723-140146.jpg

A true miracle!! Look at these coins!
The idea is to place the coin on the wall & the divine will hold the coin on the wall. I admit, I was a total non-believer… But my divine changed all that!

I walked up & placed my coin on the wall slanted part of the wall (top) & my coin kept sliding off. “There’s no way it’s gonna stick”, I thought. Then this man walked up & placed a coin on the verticle wall. It is straight up & down!!

It is physically impossible & against the law of gravity for a coin to be able to stick there!! Right before my eyes, though, I saw two people do it!! They walked up, prayed, and the coin stuck & they walked away!!

So, naturally, my mind is convinced that there’s some trick to this. I put my coin back up for the tenth time, again, it slips & falls (MAN, reflexes are fast when you’re awakened!). Feeling helpless and hopeless and about to give up, I decided to try one more time. As I’m holding my coin, a man walks up and tells me to pray and say a mantra.

He puts his coin vertical, it sticks, and then he walks away.  I’m in amazement, but I am still convinced there is a trick to this.  I think to myself, “He’s gotta be licking the coin or something to give it moisture to stick”.  So, with a sideways glance to ensure nobody is watching, I lick my coin, and then try to stick it to the wall.  Again, it falls.

“Okay”, I think, “Maybe it needs something thicker, like sweat, in order to stick?”.  Again, I look both directions to ensure nobody is watching, then I press the coin against my chest, to pick up some sweat and again, I press it against the wall with a prayer.  Again, the coin falls to the ground.  I begin to feel discouraged.

The man walks up again, and again he prays and places a coin on the wall.  I turn to him, “What’s the trick? Do you have to press hard?”, I ask as I press the coin as hard as I can with two fingers.  He chuckles at my question, watching my coin fall to the ground once more. “Faith”, he says with a smile as he walks away.

“Ah”, I thought to myself. Faith.  I lack in faith.  I know this.  I had tried so many times, to no avail.  I sang the moola mantra and tried; the coin fell.  I prayed and tried; the coin fell.  I pressed hard and tried; the coin fell.  I licked the coin and tried; it fell.  I used sweat and tried; it fell.  Yet faith never crossed my mind.  Suddenly, I felt like I was trying to hard.

After the man walked off, I took a deep, steady breath. I relaxed my grip on the coin.  I realized that this is not something that *I* can do.  It is something the divine will do.  What I had to do, was to get out of the way and allow the divine to come through me.  So, I gently held the coin to the wall with two fingers, with as little pressure as possible. I prayed to my divine, “God, I know I lack in faith. If you’re really there, please accept my offering and deepen my faith.”

As soon as I said this prayer, I felt heat come through my arm, then through my hand and finger tips.. and then I felt, like.. I felt the coin stick to the wall… Like the wall was grabbing the coin from me… and I knew it was safe to let go.

I moved my hand away, and the coin stuck to the wall. That coin is in this picture:

My jaw dropped, and then I got the hugest grin on my face that I think I’ve ever had… like a child at Christmas who just got the biggest thing she’s ever wished for.  This… it defies all laws of gravity.. it defies all laws of physics!!  There is no other explanation for this, except that it’s the divine.

It wasn’t sweat, humidity, or spit that made the coin stick.  There was a trick, though. The trick, was to ask my divine for what I wanted, to have faith, and then to just let go of the outcome; get out of the way; surrender to my divine with faith, and allow my divine to come through.  I had to stop trying to control the outcome and surrender completely to my divine.

GOD IS REAL.

GOD CAN DEFY THE LAW OF GRAVITY.

GOD CAN DO MIRACLES.

FAITH CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.

Thank you, Spirit, for the miracles you bring about in my life, for teaching me how to let go, and for deepening my faith.  I am forever and truly grateful.  I can never deny the existence of God again.  I am a changed woman.

How are you trying to control the outcome in your own life?

Today, you can make an ‘offering’ to your divine by doing one kind thing for somebody. If you feel you lack faith, perhaps you can acknowledge these feelings and then pray and ask your divine to deepen your faith and reveal itself (himself, herself) to you in some way today.
