Celestial Central Casting

 

                                          

Received this message from TUT  (Totally Unique Thoughts) which is the brain and heart child of  Mike Dooley, a man who truly lives his bliss. Transforming from his role as a tax consultant to a world wide phenom who shares wisdom via his books and Notes From The Universe, he is a heart and mind opener.  He believes that ‘thoughts become things’ and as such, encourages folks to “choose the good ones”. ®  

“The world is filled with many colorful characters, Edie, one or many of whom would be absolutely thrilled to play along in any drama you’d care to create – romantically, socially, financially, comically – any.

You just have to let me do the casting – have to.

Truly thrilled,
… The Universe”

What if our lives are stages onto which we invite all manner of such actors?  There are some who flash across the platform in a blink of an eye and are seen nevermore. Others stand center stage for a lifetime (theirs or ours). Many peek out from behind crimson curtains, waiting for an invitation to appear. Some pop in and out in different costumes, playing hide and seek. Others have been with us through many incarnations. I love the instantaneous recognition of those relationships. what is Gaelic is called ‘anam cara’ or ‘soul friend’ and I am blessed with many who fall into that category.  Each is a teacher of love; even if it doesn’t always appear to be so. Laughter, tears, drama…lights, camera, action!

I am absolutely awestruck when I consider the colorful characters who so bless my life. As I go through a brief inventory of those I am honored to call friends, I include:  artists, yoga teachers, authors, physical therapists, musicians, doctors, nurses, social workers, lawyers, (and once upon a time, an Indian Chief…Chief Halftown- a Philly area icon who passed a few years ago), counselors, gardeners, engineers, mimes, hairdressers, painters, tv and radio hosts, real estate agents, police officers, farmers, shopkeepers, chiropractors, clowns, carpenters, singer-songwriters, newspaper journalists, travel agents, coaches, (sport and personal/business), image consultants, judges, mediators, accountants, fitness trainers, editors, interior designers, models, photographers, publishers, housekeepers, cooks, movie producers, flight attendants, event promoters, sex educators, greeting card designers, CEO’s, clergy, massage therapists, contractors, dancers, lab techs, business owners, producers, directors, psychics, volunteers, students, parents, heart-trepreneurs, school teachers, computer techs…and the list goes on~

They hail from all corners of the globe, from various cultures. Some I have only ever connected with via social media and others, I know from the ‘face to face’ world. No less valuable, not having met in person; all of these folks are part of what I call ‘overlapping soul circles’ that so tickle me to think about.

The ways Celestial Central Casting brings them into my life is just as wondrous as they are. The other night, I was at the gym, doing my regular ‘playout’ (much more fun than calling it a workout), when a woman next to me started a conversation about how she had just joined and was easing her way into her own time on the machines. Fifty-something, with twinkling eyes, she  joked that neither of looked our age; but celebrating it…believe it or not, I was excited to receive my AARP invitation a few years ago:) We agreed that being in the fifth decade of our lives felt incredibly freeing, since we were now our own women; the whole package, (more than a pretty face:) , comfortable in our own skin, making decisions for ourselves with a degree of certainty that we had not in previous years. She is the only woman in a business in a male oriented profession and is simultaneously treated like ‘one of the boys’ and respected as a woman. Our conversation meandered off into raising children as single moms and starting over after marriages ended (hers by divorce, mine by widowhood), loss and death. I had told her about my experiences with my Mom’s passing and the butterfly stories. After I mentioned that symbol and reminder that whenever one showed up, I felt it was a message from her, this new friend turned around and I was amazed, but not suprised that on her left shoulder was a winged wonder. Hers was a potent symbol of healing and renewal following her divorce.

I have known for a long time that like attracts like. Although my friends have various beliefs and lifestyles, what they all have in common is their zest for life and their loving and compassionate natures. The vibration we send out into the Universe is like a homing beacon, calling toward us, that which we ARE. If I want to attract people like that, then I’d best be living it.

Welcoming Celestial Central Casting’s choices..care to audition?

    I’m answering the call, honey! Let me be a star! (I love Mike Dooley, and look forward to my Notes From the Universe each a.m.! AND I was once a guest of honor on The Chief Halftown Show – when I was 5!!)

    Love you, Edie.

      You ARE a star, Suzie-Q! Was never on Chief Halftown’s show, but was on Gene London’s show with my Brownie troop and sat on Sally Starr’s horse when I was 2 or 3. My parents filmed it…gotta watch the home movie again:)

      Love you back:) <3
