Well, day 16 was pretty dull. I worked on my online courses for iSucceed high school (which is back in Idaho). Not fun tweaking assignments, uploading files, etc. Especially when the internet (or the systems used by the school) are slow af.
But, at one point I sat outside under the covered patio (even though it was raining). I met a very nice couple who informed me that kids will trick-or-treat Saturday night. Guess I better find some candy! This place I'm staying is a very popular campground AND they have all sorts of Halloween activities... so there are children running around EVERYWHERE.
One tiny girl is driving her little jeep down the path past my home. It's moving VERY slow and she's wiggling... or rocking is maybe a better word... forward and backward to give it more momentum. (I've done this when driving a wimpy car up a hill... Have you done it... or is it just me?) Anyway, she's putting her feet up, laying on it, she even stands on the seat as it rolls slowly down the path. Perhaps she's a future X Games BMX rider 🤣.
She's looking at her tires, throws falling leaves away, even falls off at one point and climbs right back up... continually rolling slowly forward. Well somewhat forward, her dad - who is patiently walking beside her - occasionally straightens out the steering wheel to point her in the direction they're headed.
We have that too. The Universe is so very patient with us. Occasionally pointing is in the right direction but, unless you ask- your guides will watch you wiggle and wind down the path with little assistance. Getting frustrated and feeling alone because we think we have to do it alone.
So, that brings me to the blue bird story I recently mentioned...
I knew I would be in the Unstoppable Influence Inner Circle again for 2020...I had already spoken to my mentor Natasha Hazlett about it. However, I felt like I needed more accountability BUT couldn't pull the trigger on that ticket price without confirmation. I said, to the Universe (no other humans were around), "If I am supposed to upgrade to the leadership level, show me a blue bird by the end of the day Saturday."
I saw blue flowers, blue creatures, blue trees... many blue things over the next two days but no blue bird. SO, at the end of the conference (5:30ish Saturday) I hand Rich my form and say "well, I had asked for a blue bird to appear to tell me to upgrade... haven't seen one so here you go, Ignite level again." He, of course, says "hey Natasha, go find a blue bird."
We laugh and I figure, well... there's my answer. I settle into the level Natasha and I had discussed before I arrived. We all go to the Inner Circle reception, enjoying dinner, drinks and company... I forget about the blue bird... but the day isn't over yet. And as I have said before, the Universe has a sense of humor. It likes to show off. It really is fun.
Natasha and Rich invite the last stragglers up to their suite. We're all sitting around as Jackie tries to get the TV to play the video we made for Natasha. A strange noise begins and someone asks "what is that."
Rich says, "maybe it's a blue bird."
I laugh. BUT...as soon he finishes saying it, Michelle says, "there is a bird in here, I don't know what color it is." I tell her and Ronda about the blue bird and Ronda confirms there's a bird in a bag, Jackie brought it. A bird in a bag.
"What color is the bird in the bag Jackie, " Ronda asks excitedly.
I wouldn't believe it until I saw it, then I got nauseous. Whoa. Uh, I had resigned to the littler ticket price... really? Was I REALLY supposed to go to the next level? (Stupid question I know.) Ronda suggests I ask for another sign. So I think and send out my request of number confirmation silently to the Universe.
Within minutes, Natasha says "hey look, it's 11:11"
SHUT UP! I freak out. Look at my phone... which now because it's nearly 12 minutes ahead, says 23:23
Message received. And everyone there got such a kick seeing the Universe answer me. It was wild, indeed.
So, I am now in Natasha and Rich's leadership level of inner circle. I have a beautiful Unstoppable Influence Tiffany bracelet (I've never had expensive jewelry. I feel so fancy 🤣) ... and I have a whole lot of accountability to continue to take massive action.
I have the momentum.
Watching the little girl on her electric ride... she gets to puddles and potholes. She drives right in and gets stuck. Does she just sit there, waiting for help?
She gets off the little car, tries to push, it moves a little... she climbs back on, still stuck.
Off again, this time she goes to the front and pulls. She pulls that little car right out of that pothole. Just like I pulled those signs from the universe. Just like other people can help pull you up. Maybe that's why I'm sharing this story to you. To get you into forward thinking, ask IF you are supposed to do the thing to see a (insert your thing, be specific) and give it a timeline.
Then BE PRESENT. You have to be aware of the world around you. Watch and you WILL get your answer. If you'll just get up and take the steps necessary to SEE the sign (if you've closed yourself in your room and ask to see something from the outdoors... you're not helping).
A few days ago, I asked to see hearts - and not from the Love's truck stop signs - to confirm another thing in my life. Next thing I know, I feel drawn to look at the bumper stickers (I don't normally do that). I find an infinity symbol with a heart bumper sticker. Then when I say "this is fun, how about another" a woman gets out of her car... with a heart on her shirt.
Are you asking? Are you listening? Are you looking? Are you ready for change and amazing things?
I know I am. BIG big BIG wonderful, abundant things are coming.
Love you all! Have an absolutely beautiful day!
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
