“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” Paulo Coelho
The Universe came for a visit today. She didn’t know it. She had no idea I’d even asked her to come … but there she was. Skinny vanilla latte in-hand, settled comfortably on my sofa.
I’ve been doing some work around my intention to be what I call ‘spiritually present’. It is a way of being that I’m defining for myself, in a way that resonates with my soul. So, I am learning what it feels like. What it is, and perhaps what it isn’t.
This morning, Miss. Universe kindly showed me how it works … by way of a text message.
You see Miss. Universe had a heartbreaking week, so she texted this morning and asked if she could come over. She simply said “I just want to be near you”.
I just want to be near you.
Aside from being delighted to see my friend (whose name, by the way, really isn’t Miss. Universe, at all) I instantly realized that THIS, this is spiritual presence. This is, maybe the highest honor.
To just be near. Should she want tea, or a nap, or some soup ~ yes, to provide those things. But just to be near. Spiritual presence.
I am grateful tonight, for the powers that hear my pleas. For the powers that know my heart, my strengths and my perceived shortcomings. For sending a perfect messenger to show me the way … to teach me the most essential meaning, the beautiful simplicity and the core of spiritual presence.
I am beyond grateful for precious friends and family, who allow me to practice spiritual presence … especially when they don’t even realize it.
You help me grow. You help me be a better person.
Thank you, and I am honored.
Is this a difficult time, love? Are the images too much, the needs too great? Have you unplugged everything you’re capable of unplugging, and still … the stories and images find their way into your consciousness. I switch on holiday music, or yes, White Christmas will do … anything to remind me that it is, indeed, the Christmas […]
Hello love, You know how when you’re working on projects that are all related, but take a while to swirl together and become manifest? You know when there’s something in your heart that needs to show up, and you just have to wait for the right time and place? This is one of those precious […]
