MY Course In Miracles ~#3

Miracle #3 ~ The Angels Arrive

On October 2, my house was finally empty, clean and ready for the new owners to move in.

But on October 1, it didn’t seem like it was possible and I went into full-blown panic mode. The clock was ticking (LOUDLY) as I frantically packed, donated and discarded a house full of stuff.

As I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner that day (aka. drinking my morning coffee), it hit me that there was no way, on God’s green earth I was going to get it all done by myself.


I’m the most optimistic person I know, yet I needed help and I didn’t know who to call. I didn’t know what to do. I was spinning my wheels, walking in circles. I had to empty a house and I was overwhelmed with the magnitude of the task.

On the few occasions when I’ve felt this defeated before, my normal coping mechanism is to go to sleep, but that was not an option. (I once slept for 15 hours straight, about ten years ago.)

Although the movers had come and gone, there was still a LOT of stuff to pack and discard, and the cleaning people were due to arrive within the hour. I began to feel counter-productive; entertaining thoughts like “What’s the use?” and “It’s impossible!” I knew I had to shake up my thinking and my vibration, so I put on “The Science of Getting RIch.”

Miracle #3Long story short… angels arrived and it all got done!

After crying a bucket of Happy/Grateful Tears, I shot this video , which will give you all the details (#dontjudgeme~ I was comPLETELY out of my mind at the time and my plan was to only share it with my Science of Getting RIch students, because I knew they would understand.

Moral of the story… never… EVER give up. And if you come close to giving up, hold the faith. Remind yourself that there is a power, a force, an energy at work that can and will overcome any obstacle.

Miracles happen all the time; especially when you’re at your lowest low.

MY Course in Miracles~ #2

Miracle #2~ The Cats & the Moon

MY Course in Miracles taught me so many things; things I already knew, but often struggle to apply.

One thing I “already knew” was the importance of, as Paul Martinelli says, “holding my image;” getting an image of what I wanted in my mind and holding on to it, despite reality.

Napoleon Hill calls it “Definiteness of Purpose.”
Wallace Wattles calls it “holding the thought of the truth.” He goes on to say that doing this (thinking about what you do want, when in the midst of its absence) is “the hardest work in the world!”

And when it came to finding a foster home for my cats, all that “knowing” went right out the window.

These were my Cats!!!
You can see them here, on Pinterest

I started feeling desperate, (a very low frequency on the vibrational scale), and I knew I had to shift that quickly, in order for the cat-taker to show up.

I wrote about it in my journal, I visualized a specific friend saying “YES!”, as the clock continued ticking. But despite my best effort, I literally felt a heaviness in my chest, every time I thought about it.

I began asking people months before I moved. I asked everyone I could possibly think of (except my Aunt Betty. Might revisit that…) and everyone said “no.” 

Until someone said “YES!”

It was September 27th, 48 hours before the movers came. My friend Leslie was up from D.C. to help me pack. After a hard day’s work, we were at the beach, enjoying a glass of wine, when my phone rang.

It was my friend Dee. She owns a few apartments and had a tenant, she was certain would do it… but they said “no.”


Dee* said “YES!”

*Dee is one of THE nicest people on earth. She is beautiful, kind, funny as hell, very talented AND…I said all those things about her before she took my cats!

I was literally overwhelmed with emotion; I burst into tears and felt as happy as I can even remember.

And then it got better!

We went outside to finish our wine and within a few minutes, Leslie and I both gasped, as the sky LITerally lit up. It was 10PM, and the sky LIT UP!
MoonI saw that as the perfect exclamation point for the sentence “Dee is taking my cats!”

Addendum: I thought the picture was so beautiful and shared it on Facebook. I couldn’t understand all the comments from people saying “I missed it.” or “We can’t see it, it’s too foggy here.”

The next day we found out about the Blood Moon, Lunar Eclipse. Miracle # 2.5.

The Universe IS Conspiring to Help Us!

Quick story illustrating that the Universe IS conspiring to help us…

My temporary housing

As you may know, I sold my house and will be closing in just a few weeks. Since I haven’t found my next home yet, I’ll be living in “temporary housing” (aka Heaven On Earth) beginning next week.

Because my financial advisor is also a local friend, I asked him what he would recommend for storage.

Here is our conversation:
Me: Mark, have you ever used a storage facility nearby? I have to find a place to put my stuff, while I find a new house.
Him: Linda, guess what I’m holding in my hand.
Me: I have no idea.
Him: A key for a storage unit. Guess why I’m holding it.
Me: I have no idea.
Him: Because I’m getting ready to put it in an envelope to mail to my friend who’s been renting it to me for $50/month. We don’t need it anymore. Do you want me to ask him if you can have it?
Me: Um, yes. please.
