Dreams do come true

Crystal apple dish...

Many years ago I was a U.S. Postal carrier. Yes, I was a mail lady. I enjoyed walking outside and seeing and chatting with my customers yet going to work early on a Saturday morning made me sad. Walking up to a customers door step and hearing the cartoons on the television and smelling bacon cooking for breakfast made my heart hurt, because I wanted to be at home with my family. I was thankful for the secure and good paying job with great benefits. It helped me support my daughter and myself for many years. I was always trying some outside gig to help me eventually and hopefully leave my post office job because it wasn’t my passion. 

One of those side gigs was being a Princess House Consultant. When I joined, the previous Hostess gift was a beautiful apple crystal dish. It was about 5” tall. The lid was the 1/4 top of an apple with the apple stem as the handle. I thought it was beautiful and I wanted one. As a Consultant, we would buy a Kit and it would come with the Hostess gift for that period of time. Unfortunately, I missed the apple crystal dish by weeks and there were none left. I was never able to get my hands on one. That dish and experience always stuck with me. Not sure why I liked that dish so much, but I did. 

Fast forward several years, by this time I had resigned from the Postal Service after 14.7 years and I was no longer a Princess House Consultant. I’d started a Personal Assistant service and was much happier. More freedom and I still had customers to serve and interact with and offering services I enjoyed doing. 

One year on Christmas day, I had left my in-laws earlier than my husband and just before the gift exchange. I remember driving home happy as can be, enjoying the beautiful views of the mountains and valleys as I listened to music loudly in my husband’s truck. The next morning I woke up and headed down the hallway towards our dining room, as I got closer to our dining room I couldn’t believe what I saw sitting on our dining table pointing my way, sitting on the table as if it was waiting for me to wake up. As if it were Christmas morning once again. I stood there, my mouth open, stunned. I stopped about a foot away from it. Staring at it in utter shock and confusion. How?! What?! Where?! It was a crystal apple dish. It was as though I was a child on Christmas morning. Shocked I had been given a gift I had wanted for years. Surprised by it’s arrival. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was as though God/Spirit said, “good morning sunshine, Merry Christmas! Here’s something you’ve been wanting.” I walked over to my husband and asked, “what’s this? Where did it come from?” he replied, Linda and Reggie gave it to us, you left before the gift exchange.” I told him my story about wanting the Princess House apple crystal hostess gift for years and never being able to get one. Linda and Reggie had given us the essence of the Princess House crystal apple dish I had longed for. It wasn’t Princess House but it sure looked like the one I had wanted. I hadn’t gone looking for it and yet here it was. I was in utter shock and aw of what had just happened. I instantly called my sister-in-law and told her my story and she said to me, “we were shopping and I saw the dish and thought it was pretty and asked Reggie if he thought Stephanie and Louie would like it? he said, “yeah I think so, get it for them” and so I bought it. You need to thank Reggie, it wasn’t me.”

Later that day and the days to follow I thought about how I’d been feeling prior to the beautiful surprise manifestation. How had I been feeling? What had I been doing? I know I had been feeling good. Spending time with my family and in-laws on Christmas day. Doing my best to focus my attention on thoughts that felt better and looking for things to appreciate such as driving home Christmas night blasting the radio. Feeling so amazing listening to music and singing along to the songs I liked and taking in the beauty of the mountains and view as I left Ramona and drove through Poway and descended down from the mountains. It was beautiful and I was happy! Prior to Christmas, I had been doing my best to practice feeling good as often as possible in one way or another.

It was amazing, after all those years, out of the blue pops out what I wanted. It’s not as though I thought about it all the time. It was something I greatly desired years ago and never got, and than circumstances and events occurred to bring about the full manifestation of it. That’s the funny and awesome thing about Spirit and the Universe, when and how something will come about often isn’t known to us. Maybe as human being’s we’re not supposed to know. It would take all the mystery, intrigue and delight out of living our lives. If we knew everything that was going to happen, when it was going to happen and how it was going to happen life would get pretty dull. So again, the Universe and Spirit are magnificent. 

We are so deeply loved and provided for. What I continue to be reminded of more and more, is that my job, my only job, is to feel as good as I can, as often as I can, for as long as I can. To know that we are deeply loved and provided for. Always. That Spirit always wants the very best for us and that the Universe is explicitly abundant and therefore so are we. When we practice and come to believe that, our lives will be as sweet as a tree ripened orange on a beautiful Spring morning. 

P.S. as I post the images together I realize that the dish that Spirit gave me is prettier and nicer than the one I originally wanted. So like Spirit to give an upgrade on a desire. LOL!

Much love and joy to you!

Spirit remembers it all...

When I look at my life I’m surprised by how much of what I am living today is something that when I was younger I must have had a thought such as, “I like this!”, “I want this.”, “it’d be nice to be like this!”. For instance when I was growing up I lived off and on with my Nana and Tata (my grandparents). They lived in Lemon Grove, a suburb of San Diego, CA. Their home sat on a quarter of an acre on a canyon’s edge. No houses behind them. It was pure heaven to me. Many mornings throughout my childhood I would go in the backyard and look out onto the vast property and take in the fresh air, all the tree’s and plants. I felt as though I was the only person for miles around. I loved their property. Fast forward forty some years and I’m sitting in my spa that sits in my deck that overlooks the canyon’s edge. It’s a beautiful easy spring morning, the sun is beginning to rise and there’s a lovely chill in the air. There are many plants and shrubs near by. A large tree about 30 feet away swaying in the wind that all the birds are called to. These birds are chirping their morning song, chirp, “good morning, life is good”, chirp, chirp, “good morning, life is good”. As I enjoy the warm soothing water against my entire body and take in the peaceful scenery my heart sings and I am filled with deep appreciation as I realize this wasn’t always the case. I had always longed for this spa. I didn’t know if it would ever happen and yet there I sit enjoying all the outer pleasures of my backyard canyon view with the flora, birds and sky. I wanted this spa. I visualized it. I felt myself sitting in it with its wellness properties yet I never imagined the joy that the setting would give me. It’s as though Spirit (God, Creator, Goddess, fill in the blank with whichever name works for you) said, “Stephanie you want a spa? Ok, I’m gonna do you one even better! I remember every request you have made since your first breathe and I will pull together many of them and deliver them in one beautiful package, and here it is!” 

As I am sitting and enjoying my spa from this incredible view with all the birds singing good morning to me and the hummingbird buzzing near by sounding like a mini UFO, it occurs to me that I, long ago had asked for a home on a canyon’s edge with no neighbors behind me and here I sit. I never went looking for it and yet here it is. I had asked and Spirit had delivered it with all its glory. And that my friends is why I love practicing and living the art of allowing. Being in the flow of life. Feeling as good as I can, as often as I can, for as long as I can. When I do the “feeling good” work, I feel better more of the time and my life gets better and better. And I enjoy myself along the way. It is well worth the 5, 10 or even 15 minutes it may take me to feel a little bit better and than a little bit better until before I know it I’m feeling pretty darn good. Because, the universal law of attraction is always working. In every moment LOA (law of attraction) as I lovingly like to refer to it, is responding to my thoughts and energy as well as yours. Because what we think about will come about. I love teaching my clients about this art and witnessing their transformation. Giving them tools and techniques so they too can be in the flow and allow their lives to feel better and therefore be better one day at a time. Because really the only reason why we want absolutely anything and everything we want, is because we think we will feel better in having it. Once we realize and begin to make “feeling good” our main objective, then life will continue to get better and better. It has to. Law of attraction insists upon it. Granted we’re not always going to feel good however when we make this our main objective to the best of our ability at any given moment, that’s when the change occurs and the magic begins. I call it magic because it looks and feels like magic however it really isn’t magic it’s the powerful law of attraction at work. Really cool people, places and things will come along. 

This is the whole purpose of my work as a transformational life coach and the purpose of this blog. I want to remind you of how powerful, blessed and abundant you are. To assist you in flipping the switch of your thinking to better feeling thoughts and therefore be a match to anything and everything you are wanting to live, be, do and have. Here’s to us living a really good life. Cheers!

I always wanted a Pine Tree in my backyard. I never planted this tree it just sprouted up one day. The Universe knew I wanted a pine tree in my backyard, away from my house and not obstructing my view. Yes the perfect spot for it!
