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.

Where I Am
  How often do you ask yourself  'what if and if only'  questions?  "What if I had chosen a different path, partner, career, home?  Bet I'd be happier if I had," is the frequent litany for many. We get fidgety staying still. We kvetch about how things aren't the way we want them to be, a

On Wings
  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was
