The Universe Is Listening
I heard about the Secret last year and just knew it was the answer to something that had been tugging at my heart for months, maybe years even. I immediately bought the book and the DVD and became so excited as a whole new world opened up to me. Since that time, I have been practicing daily gratitude and envisioning my life exactly as I choose it to be. Of course, negative thoughts try to creep in, but I always try to get myself on the positive side of things as quickly as I possibly can.
Well, one particular day last week, I was in a terrible funk. I can’t remember how it started, but for some reason I just could not shake it, and I was starting to get down on myself. I felt like I was ruining all the good vibrations I had been sending out to the Universe. I was driving in my car, feeling myself going on this downward spiral, when I suddenly just started praying to God to talk to me, someway, anyway. To send me some message that everything really was okay and to not get down on myself. I was doing a lot of driving that day and had driving around for almost an hour or so with no ‘messages’. I was a little discouraged, but not terribly so. I finally came to my destination and was about to park behind a certain car. Just as I was about to pull in, something told me to skip that spot and park a few feet in front of that car. I don’t know why. I just decided to do it. So I pulled a few feet ahead and parked behind a different car. I was about to get out the car when for some reason I just glanced at the license plate of the car in front of me. Again, I don’t know why, I just did it. And there, in front of me on the license plate, were the words, “BELIEVE IT”. I just stopped and caught my breath, and before I knew it, tears were coming down my face. I instantly felt my bad mood begin to disappear.
I had asked the Universe to just give me a message, any message, to shake my mood, and there it was, staring at me in the most unlikely place I could think of. That experience just reaffirmed for me that no matter what you are going through, the Universe hears and loves you, and all you have to do is believe. Even if it just means believing a little more each and every day. It may not come all at once, like I hoped it would, but with steady practice, this ‘believing business’ is getting easier and easier :). And the Universe truly does talk to us everywhere, in every way, if we just stop and take notice. I am so thankful for that day. God Bless.
