Sooo, here I was in October 2018, getting all happy about the new Fireman Calendar.
YES! it has Kittens in it! How can I resist?
If you know me, you know by now, that I have one of these calendars hanging up in my Healing room every year... you know, to keep the energy balanced (smiles).
Every year, I get one (speak buy 6) of the calendars for my family in Switzerland. After all it is for a very good cause, as we all now... fires can rage in Australia.
Sooo, all happy I mail them all off... and.... comes November... comes December... and the calendars have still not arrived at the destination.
I even mailed them on a 11/2 day! In a 11/2 year!
What could go wrong?
December comes and goes... and still no calendars... By now everyone has accepted that they got lost in the mail, or someone REALLY needed a Aussie Fireman calendar (couldn't really blame them... smiles).
But then... oh joy! on January 3 it has arrived. The parcel just went to Malaysia first. I can only imagine the puzzled faces trying to find the delivery address in Malaysia.
After 2 months someone must have noticed that the parcel was meant to go to Switzerland. Too funny really... just imagine....
Anyway, isn't it just the perfect example of patience and expectation?
When you ask for something, do you put an expectation on it? And if it doesn't happen instantly get upset or disheartened?
If things don't go your way, do you give up?
When you ask for something do NOT put any expectations on it. The Angels/Universe will deliver what you have asked for, or better, at the exact right time.
Usually when you don't expect it anymore...
That's why it is important to ask for what you WANT! Because you will receive it eventually...
Sometimes, time needs to go by, for you to be ready to receive and being able to handle what you have asked for.
In this case, happy smiles all around, as everyone LOVES Kittens!
And we all support the hardworking Australian Firemen.
The moral of the story....
Ask for what you WANT, without attaching any EXPECTATIONS on it..... and by a Fireman Calendar :)
Love & Light
The signs of abundance can sometimes be clear as mud... or simply clear. Maybe it is us which make them clear as mud at times by over-thinking and not really believing that we are deserving of abundance.
My abundance "stint" started with this number plate in Switzerland last month. I saw it and yes, I got very excited... all these 8! That can only mean luck, abundance and power. Probably like so many of us, after my excitement ebbed, I couldn't remember what I was thinking immediately before seeing all the 8's. I had the sign and forgot my question for the Angels (shoot).
Anyway, holding onto the thought of abundance, crossing my fingers to win big or that something big will happen, I went on my merry way.
Abundance 1: The next day I went into the city and saw the gorgeous owl cards, which I just had to have. After a bit of "haggling" I did get them at a discounted prize (well it was the display pack after all, as they had sold out. Only fair right? Sure but not usual in Switzerland as my cousin assured me... LOLs).
Abundance 2: Back home there was a Gold Lotto Cheque! waiting for me. Nothing huge ($17) but it was something I didn't expect and wooohooo! it was a Gold Lotto Cheque how ever small didn't matter.
My mind now was set to ABUNDANCE. My energy maybe demanded ABUNDANCE, then shortly after...
Abundance 3: I just Needed to go to the beach, put my feet in the sand and water. I dragged my husband with me (he doesn't enjoy beach walks... I know... unbelievable right?). Anyway as it was a VERY breezy day we decided to go to the local surf club for coffee. You guessed it... we did put a couple of dollars into the pokie machines...AND... the $2 won us $140. Woohooo! Again not huge... but a win. This staying in the abundance flow thing seems to work!
Abundance 4: I was given some money for my birthday with the order to buy myself something nice when I return home. Immediately my mind went to... I need new work shoes, a new work bag... STOP wasn't the order to buy something nice? Ha, how about a Nespresso Coffee machine? YES!
My friend Google told me that the "cheaper" ones sell at $199.... not bad I guess, as it is good coffee...
Off I go to buy one... and guess what? There was a further deduction on that day, so I got it for $179 and they chucked in an extra box of free capsules!
WOW! I really enjoy this abundance thing. My GRATEFUL metre is rising by the minute!
Abundance 5: I won Gold Lotto again! Again only a small amount ($12) but... abundance never the less. Yes I have re-invested the $12... watch this space...
Abundance comes in many ways. If it is small wins, new friends, people who help us or free "stuff" doesn't matter. Staying in the flow of receiving and feeling happy and good about it is important.
Being grateful for little things will bring more abundance into your life.
Watch the signs around you. This may be the number 8 or feathers or personalised number plates... You know best what carries significance for you.
Uplifted energy will attract good things and people into your life.
I hope that this blog will uplift your energy to manifest what you desire into your life, how ever small or big it may be.
Remember.... YOU DESERVE IT!
Love & Light
Bucket list... Do you have one? Do you have a list of things you want to do and places you want to go to see? To make matters worse, is this bucket getting fuller and fuller, squashing your dreams and aspirations you once had to the bottom ... to be forgotten?
I personally never liked bucket lists and therefore don't have one.
My aspirations and dreams keep changing, with one constant.... I like where I am, what I do and what I stand for. So all I need is right here with me. A family and friends that I cherish, a home I love and a job that I love getting up for every day.
Am I fortunate? Yes I am and immensely grateful.
Was I fed with a silver spoon and everything just fell/falls into my lap? I wish
Do I need or want to see places before I die? NO
Do I want to jump out of a plane or do some other crazy things? NO
All the crazy I need and want in my life is right here and now with me.
Sure, I love travelling and go on a holiday and experience different cultures as everyone else... but it doesn't have to be, it is not a necessity for me.
I guess what I am trying to say is... Everything you need is right there, inside you. Doing crazy things or going to see exotic places will not change the essence of who you are. It may highlight it but not change.
So... why squash your dreams and put a condition on them. You know the ones..... I'll do this... when
I go see this... when.
Today do something you always wanted to do but never found the time, or just felt bad if you would have.... Go see that movie after dropping off the kids at school.... Go to the beach on a Thursday... Have lunch with a friend.... jump out of a plane... what ever it is DO IT!
Time is the most valuable "thing" we have. The "one day I will" speech....forget about it. Make plans today to achieve that goal. Yes! right now! What do you need to achieve your dream?
You want to travel and have no money? Look at your budget. Is there options to pay for your holiday.
Time? Take all these accumulated holidays, what are you saving them for? Organise someone to look after your house and pets when you are away.
Health? How can you manage your health when you are away... Is there support.
What you don't want is to one day say... I wish I would have....
Live today! Life is short and later might never come. Time is your most valuable item you have on earth. Make it count!
Do or don't do.... but BE
On this note....I am off to spend some time Overseas with family and friends. Never know when the next time will be....
Love & Cherish always
