Sometimes we really want to receive divine help but are expecting it to show up in a certain way, and it doesn't!
One of my biggest gifts and reminders of divine intervention is how I met Adam, my husband and cosmic mate (it was fifteen years ago yesterday!). He picked me up hitchhiking on a day I thought I had made a huge mistake by following my strong inner guidance...
I chose to trade a MA for a deep experiential training because the voice within was so loud and clear that I had to... so. I did.
I moved from Cambridge to Marin County to study Movement Based Expressive Arts Therapy, After 4 days I was feeling lonely and wondering if my choice was not right... Everything felt far without the convenience of subways and frequent buses available to explore and get to where I needed... I even missed the first day of classes because I got lost,
I finally figured out how to get to school, and the bus driver missed me while I waited at the bus stop with a big red had and a huge drawing pad!!!!
I couldn't help but feeling lonely and doubting if following my intuition was the right thing to do. I shrunk inside as all my. not enough limiting beliefs visited my mind, but since I was determined to get to school no matter how long it took, I thought about hitchhiking & coming from Colombia where hitchhiking is dangerous to say the least, I didn't feel at ease doing it but I did it anyway!
I stretched out my arm and pointed my thumb up, & no one stopped!
Thankfully I was so determined to get to school I put the drama on the side and started walking in that direction. Two blocks later I saw a white pick up truck stop and beep. I hustled over, and peeking out of the window was a beautiful black Australian Shepherd with wise eyes telling me it was safe to come in. Then I glanced at the driver, a sparkly, long haired man with very familiar eyes & knew I had to get in. I did & Adam took me to school, and still takes me anywhere I ask him to!
Our coming together is a clear example of divine intervention. He tells me he was running late that morning and his truck was a mess and he didn't want to stop, but something made him slam the brake.
We had both been praying our way for meeting our life partner, our cosmic mate, while doing the inner work to allow it to happen. We didn't expect it to be this way though, but we listened and were allowing it even if it felt chaotic at first!
Prayer is an intimate dialogue with the Infinite One and our Spirit Friends and Guides, and it's always answered.
It usually begins with a shower of inner peace and a feeling that everything will be all right and is already all right, and the the physical responses unfold as we say YES to it all.
I want to remind you that it's ok not to know how your prayers will be answered. They're always heard and as we tune in to the star lit Self we are and follow our bliss, including all of life and its waves (instead of fighting what seems to be out of synch with our visions and desires), we step into the land of allowing.
It is about remembering and tuning in. Remembering you are made of stars, and are so spacious within there's no need to be on guard with your feeling-thought-sensations. It is safe to feel All of life and follow what is true and lights you up.
You are unique, and so is your way of praying. Remember praying and playing are sisters who share the strings of bliss.
May you pray-play and allow the Infinite One to surprise you with the details.
Let me know how praying your way is going below!
