Last year, in the midst of experiencing emotional turmoil, physical challenges and financial woes, I had a conversation with Spirit. We are on such intimate terms that there are times when I wonder if it is a dialog or monologue, as in ‘there is only one of us here.’ I asked for guidance and support to get through it all. As has been the case for years, the loud and clear message showed up in the form of a question that goes something like this: “Have I ever dropped you? Have things not worked out better than you can imagine, even in the face of challenges?” Ah, nope. Ah, yep. And then a spark of insight came through. No matter who signs my paychecks, I am aligned with the Divine and am on the celestial payroll.
The mantra then came roaring through. “I work for God and the salary and benefits are out of this world.” I smiled broadly as I realized the absolute truth of those words. It occurred to me that the more I said them, the more they would latch on and the more they would be my manna-fested reality. Shortly after invoking their magic, an opportunity arose to do what I love and be well compensated for it. I am finally living a writer’s life. Since my work is portable, I can do it from anywhere. I wrote a few articles while on my maiden voyage to New Orleans for Jazz Fest. I will be heading to California this week to officiate at my niece’s wedding and will have my trusty computer with me to translate new ideas to readable form.
The rewards are not all monetary, although that certainly is lovely. Some of it is knowing that what comes through me touches others. It is a gift for me immediately and then a blessing to be able to offer it out into the world.
I encourage you to see yourself as infinitely abundant. What would your life be like if you were in receptivity mode? What would the world be like if populated with folks who knew that there was enough for everyone? No withholding. No taking from anyone. No fighting over scare resources. Generosity flowing like honey. Paying it forward. Praying it forward. So it is.
