Lost and Found Part Two


A few days ago, I reported that my new iphone had taken a vacay and hadn’t asked me to join it. As any adept spiritual practitioner might do, I combined both the practical and the prayerful. I went through the process of filing an insurance claim, ordering a replacement, got one of those mini ‘go’ phones that felt like an infant version compared to the heft of an iphone and without the bells and whistles. I then tossed into the mix, a petition to the Universal Locator to find the wayward communication device and bring it safely home. I put out a call on facebook to friends who have psychic abilities to chime in with their ideas of where it could be and was rewarded with folks reminding me to hold the vision for finding it, some suggested letting it go and not fret over it. Some were expressing certainty (like a lost dog) that it would find its way back from whence it came. I went about my day yesterday with a sense of uneasiness about how it had slipped from my grasp; much like my memory these days. Last night, as I was immersed in the Presidential debate, my son comes in and says “Mom, I have a funny story to tell you. Your angels must be on your side, because look what I found.” and he holds up my phone. Incredulous, I ask “Where did you find it?”  He responds ” Near the bush out front,” indicating that it was by the walkway, by which I had passed several times and never noticed it. It had also rained quite heavily that day and yet the phone was dry and it worked. Still, I followed the instructions of friends to place it in a container of rice to be sure it passed muster and was dry.  What was just as remarkable is that my son doesn’t consider himself spiritual and yet he was being used by Spirit to locate what I couldn’t.

This morning, I brought it back to AT &T and the salesman checked it out and remarked that the insides were dry as well; which came a surprise to him but not to this miracle minded mama. I Just Called to Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder
