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.

Dreams DO Come True!

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” ~Walt Disney

Last November I met with my accountant to create a VISION for my future. In addition to having his CPA, PFS, he recently became certified as a Financial Life Planner, which is really kind of cool.

We sat for several hours and talked about everything from where I’d like to live– family– career– relationships– vacations– even tennis.

At the end of the meeting, Mark said “Linda, if you really buckle down and get busy, I think you can accomplish all of this over the next year.”


I was super excited, because although I’ve always wanted to live at the Jersey Shore, at this stage of the game, I wasn’t sure it could actually happen. Knowing that Mark believed it was financially feasible gave me so much encouragement, but I still had a lot of questions…

  • What do I need to do to sell my house?
  • How much profit will I have, after I sell?
  • Can I afford to buy something down the shore?
  • How am I going to do all of this myself???

IMG_1996Mark gave me the notes from that meeting, along with a detailed list of things I needed to do to get the ball rolling (new carpet, replace storm door, paint, new upstairs vanity, etc…) and on the last page, he wrote “October 2015.”


I said “Heck, if I can do this by October, let’s just make it September, so I can enjoy the nicest month of the year at the beach!”

On August 4th, 13 days after listing, I had a signed contract, full-price offer on my townhouse, with a scheduled closing of October 2nd. Pretty awesome, although it wasn’t September. Mark & I joked that we came pretty close.

As the weeks rolled by and I wasn’t finding the perfect house, it became apparent I would need a temporary place to stay. My realtor happens to be the broker for all the beautiful oceanfront condos I had vacationed at for several years. It’s called The Ocean Club and is situated right ON the Atlantic; steps away from the sand.

As you can see in the first picture, it was my dream to own one of them. That dream took a slight detour, after I found out how much they were selling for and I decided to look elsewhere.


there were a few available to rent for the month of October. A one-bedroom unit rents for several thousand dollars a WEEK in the Summer. That price drops to less than HALF in the “off season,” which apparently begins the day after Labor Day.
Hellllllllllllo Ocean Club!

And then it got better!

Since it was so affordable, I decided to take it for September too and I have enjoyed the, in my opinion, most beautiful month of the most beautiful Jersey Summer at the beach.

Miracles have been coming, fast and furious, which I’ll write about in later posts. But here is what I’ve learned, in the process.

  • The Universe is conspiring to help us
  • Being clear and specific about what you want is essential
  • You’re never too old (or too young!) to live out your dream
  • Letting go of the “how is this gonna ever happen?” allows the how to show up


My dream was to live at The Ocean Club and I had no idea how that could happen.

What is your dream?

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.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to E2

The very first experiment in my new favorite book, E2 by Pam Grout, tells us to ask for a blessing or unexpected gift from the “Field of Potentiality” (the FP) or God or the Universe or Infinite Intelligence or whatever higher power you believe in. You set a 48 hour limit and you ask for “a thumbs up, a clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence.” Continue reading
