I was on my walking meditation today when all of a sudden I felt my heart expand and waves of love and joy and bliss exploded all through me —
what an amazing gift — I felt kissed by the universe.
This reminds me of an event that happened to me when I was a flight attendant. My crew had a 2 hour layover in Chicago - I discovered when we were in the courtesy van to our hotel in Savannah, that my purse was missing–it must have fallen out of my pocketbook in Chicago’s crew lounge.
Yet, I didn’t have that fearful sunken feeling of dread that usually comes with such discoveries … instead I felt like I was being hugged and felt very strongly that everything would be ok.
At the hotel I called the Chicago crew lounge and asked them to hold my purse for my return there the next day. The lounge attendant returned from checking the area where I had sat and said that my purse was not there. Yet I was shown very clearly in in my mind–it had somehow fallen between the crack of chairs and was not seen without moving them apart. So I relayed this to the attendant and sure enough, she found my purse and held it for me.
But my story doesn’t end there …
The next morning I walked to a small coffee shop and sat outside with my latte and scone to enjoy the beautiful , clear sunny day–still feeling grateful for my purse being found. I felt the urge to look up at the sky—and in that moment, a huge cloud broke apart to form a perfect outline of a heart….
My story gets better …
As I started to walk back to the hotel to get ready for our flight, a gust of wind picked up and right in front of me, what appeared to be a 4 ft piece of cardboard tumbled by—it was a big red heart….
Unbelievable! Like a double kiss from the universe!
In the hotel, as I started to put my uniform on, I had the urge to turn on the TV to have some noise….
suddenly I heard the haunting sound of a flute in the most beautiful melody….it was a superboy episode . As I listened, the flute player- a young girl said to superboy….
The universe is alive …and if you trust it- really trust it, it will treat you better then you can treat yourself—it will help you fly….
I am so grateful for that message that summarized perfectly what had happened when I found my purse missing….
Since then, when ever I feel something is upsetting ,or that I have no control over a situation,
I reach for that memory —-and choose to trust …..
