I recently had a client in the office that had been struggling with life’s transitions. Her heart was discouraged and she had spent many months, even years attempting to release the pain. My heart was filled with joy when I received an email and pictures from her with the following experience.
This story is one of inspiration and Divine support when you are truly present in your journey. All we need to do is allow and put the effort into our growth.
(The following story is true and the name has been changed to respect privacy.)
Susan had been struggling with life’s transitions in her personal life to the point of frustration and discouragement. She decided to come in for a Spiritual and Energy Healing Session the day before her birthday. She had been several times before. Each time, feeling better but not quite where she wanted to be.
Susan had a strong urge to go to the beach on the morning of her birthday and watch the sunrise. In spite of living near the beach most of her life, this would be her first sunrise.
She was well on her way to the beach when she realized she didn’t have her sunglasses. Everyone knows that sunglasses are necessary on a bright sunny day at the beach!
Susan looked for them in their customary place, since they were not there, she assumed they must be in the car, and left for the beach.
She pondered in self refection for a moment and thought, “ Because I had decided there were only two options, I didn’t take a quick glance around to see if they were at the house. If I had, I would have seen that they were 6 inches from where I was putting on my shoes.”
When she got in her car, she didn’t look for them until halfway into the drive. Realizing they weren’t there, she knew she wasn’t going back for them. She immediately thought of her straw hat and knew that would be a sufficient substitute.
Then she started thinking about the idea of options, and how she had limited her options to one of two possibilities. She was not open to the idea of more options! As a result, she missed out on having her sunglasses with her.
She started to think about this concept in relation to her life as a whole and how she often decreed what the possibilities are with a person, situation, etc. and determine that if isn’t A, then it must be B, without allowing for the notion of C through infinity for possibilities.
Then she realized how her thought process was limiting her in a very simple, straightforward, practical way. Susan saw that this is something she wanted to change. Then she said, out loud, “Thank you for the lesson and I appreciate it very much.” Then she thought to herself, “I really wish I had my sunglasses!”
A beautiful sunrise was waiting when she arrived at the beach. She sat down in her beach chair for a while, then dove into the ocean and swam with the dolphins. It was wonderful! While she was swimming, She saw a woman walking her dog. Other than that, there was no one else on the beach.
She left the water and walked over to her chair and as she got closer, she stopped dead in her tracks. Laying in the sand, a few inches from her chair, was a pair of sunglasses!
She stood there for a while just staring at them, and then walked away from them. She wrapped herself in a towel, and stood at the water’s edge.
Susan thought to herself, “They look very similar to my own glasses which are a bit unusual in style. My lens don’t go all the way to the sides of the frame, there is a small gap between them, and I have never seen another pair like mine, but these have the same gap, the similar frame shape & color. I find that really interesting and have no explanation for it.”
Although her heart knew that she was just given a gift of encouragement to continue to think in the way she did regarding options, and the lesson learned, it also taught her to trust, and have faith in the energy of the universe.
Her mind started searching for another answer. She saw the lady with the dog coming back and thought maybe she had dropped them. But, she didn’t. They were for her.
Tangible and irrefutable in their existence & sudden appearance. Just what my rational brain can’t explain away. It was a good day!
Susan expressed to me that she feels different now, and believes it is a result of the energy and spiritual session work, and the enormous surge in trust that the experience on the beach gave to her.
Susan’s story is simple, yet powerful, and the personal growth for this young woman was tremendous. Divine universal love can reach us in the most unique ways, if we are willing, the teacher will appear, even if it is a pair of sunglasses.
