The more I give up trying to control myself, and my life, the better things work! Last autumn I was scheduled to attend an event a few hours north. I woke up before my alarm clock and was ready leave much earlier than usual. It felt right, so I hopped in the car and got on the road way before it was necessary. I didn’t have a clue as to what I was going to do when I arrived, but I figured if God woke me up early, and gave me the impulse to drive up early, there was a good reason!
As I drove into town, the guidance arrived – as it always does – very simply. I simply had a sudden craving for the fresh apple cider sold by a little restaurant about 15 minutes up the creek. It appeared I had enough time before the event began, so I happily turned onto the scenic road heading up the creek, feeling that everything was going perfectly!
I promptly got stuck behind “the slowest car on earth!” That’s a bit of an exaggeration of course, but my mind started going crazy! What was this about? I was so eagerly looking forward to my destination, that I temporarily forgot to enjoy the journey! Spiritual sanity returned quickly! It was a beautiful day. I realized that if I stopped worrying about what “should” happen I would actually enjoy what “was” happening! So I relaxed and enjoyed the scenic drive… slowly!
I started to feel, in fact, that God was arranging something fun. My feelings were confirmd when I was further delayed at the takeout counter while ordering the cider. I heard a man next to me asking about his coffee and looked up just in time to see why I had been delayed all morning! There stood a person whose work I deeply respect and admire. I’ve talked to this individual briefly but never had a real conversation. So given the fact that I had more time than I thought, he invited me to sit and chat while I sipped cider and he ate his breakfast. I was able to share some technical information, and in a single sentence he shared from the heart, he validated the entire direction I was taking with my next series of Ann & the Angels… down to the exact wording I’d been using! It was a perfect exchanged of information and inspiration! Way to Go God!
The day kept getting better. I got to my event in perfect timing and enjoyed even more synchronicity.I had asked the angels to “Nail the energy in my left foot to the floor!” The healer whose event I attended, who knew none of this, came to me and stepped on my left foot anchoring its energy firmly! I nearly broke out laughing with delight! God guided him to answer my prayer!
Uncharacteristically I had the urge to dash out as soon as it was over and managed to run into another friend, again just in time!
On the drive home, I was counting my blessings, thinking about the wonderful synchronicities and divine timing, when a huge mass of tangled wire flew out of a truck in front of my car! I had nowhere to swerve, and nothing to do but pray,… and run over it! Of all things, the clock read 4:44! I breathed a sigh of relief! It seemed like all was well and my car escaped without damage. I didn’t hear any bad noises!
I exited the freeway earlier than usual, due to a traffic jam… and a loving God. On the exit ramp, while waiting for the red light to change, a motorcyclist next to me frantically motioned for me to unroll the window. He pointed under my car! “You have 50 feet of wire trailing behind you lady! You need to fix that! You’re lucky no one ran over it! They could have torn off your axle!” He shouted kindly, making sure I could hear. “Do you think I can get home before I remove it?” I asked. “No!” He told me. “Get that taken care of as fast as you can! Your car could get ripped apart if someone runs it over!” His urgency told me I better take care of this fast as possible!
Shaken, I pulled into a nearby gas station to take a look and was horrified to see that tangled mass of wires was indeed “wrapped around my axle” and trailing 50 feet behind the car. I stood there contemplating how to get it off without tools, when another Good Samaritan arrived. A young man, dressed in what I call “Archangel Michael Blue” hospital scrubs had seen the mess of wires trailing behind my car and thought I might need help! He got on his hands and knees, untwisted those wireds, and shoved them all in a nearby trash bin! I didn’t even know what to say, I was so grateful. He wouldn’t take a dime so I just thanked him and told him I’d pray for him and his family.
I sat there in the car, thanking God for the incredible love and care I had received all day long – the meeting with a friends, the wonderful healer, the kind and helpful souls that prevented me from what could have been a real mess… and for the metaphor of getting untangled with all that help!
God does indeed care for us in so many ways! I listened to my heart all day and the timing was incredible. the help was incredible, and the earth angels showed up… just in perfect timing. Trust your hearts!
