Allowing Angelic Divine Intervention
Angels helped me last summer with something big, and I still send thanks every day. A year ago today, I lived in a home I was renting from some friends. They left me with their 12 chickens, three cats, and a grown son still living in the basement. My college-age son and our two cats moved in, and later my grown daughter who had just earned her Master’s Degree in Public Health, temporarily moved in with us, along with her boyfriend and their Pug dog. It was definitely a full house.
Many family memories were made, like my daughter hatching seven duck eggs in our living room, all of us decorating an enormous Christmas tree that fell on us and splattered everywhere, caring for five playful cats, collecting dozens of chicken eggs and dispersing them to the neighbors, dressing up Frank the pug dog in Halloween costumes and taking lots of photos, cooking enormous feasts and inviting our friends and family, and tending to multiple raised garden beds and then harvesting from them.
My friends who owned the house, called one day to say they were selling it. We all had two months to find a home. They would find homes for their three cats if I found a home for the chickens. I had lived on that corner for eleven years. Panic hit, because I had not used or owned a credit card for ten years, and had spent my savings to fix up a condo in another state.
We had multiple beloved hens, ducks, and a sweet rooster to find homes for. They had names and personalities. They couldn’t go to just any generic farmer who may eat them. We were attached to the three cats who came with the house, but couldn’t take them, not five of them.
The first day of their announcement I literally felt as if a mac truck had run me over. I was frozen, lay in bed and slept, hiding within myself all day. Deep in the bottomless pit of despair and fear, I decided I couldn’t exist that way anymore.
I had to act. But how?
It was in those moments of torturous darkness that I made a decision to change my thoughts so that I could pull my emotional and physical body out of that quicksand. When I did this, it literally changed my energy from slowness and gloom to lightness and hope.
The phrase “God helps those who help themselves” did not originate in the Bible, but actually in ancient Greece. For me, these are words of pure manifestation and divinely guided outcomes. The essence and meaning are tested and true, especially during times when life is emotionally charged and I am in pure survival mode.
First order of business was to figure out how to get enough money for a deposit in a couple months or less! Paycheck to paycheck means just that! My thoughts went something like this: “This is a forced change and I am lost”. (paralysis)
“No. I am given an opportunity here. Thank you for this jolt of lightning God. I am excited to have this opportunity to create a huge new change.” (energy boost)
“Here it is, the moment I have been waiting for! The change I have been desiring and now is the time! I can seek out exactly the new environment and situation I want, right now. Clean slate. Here I go! Let the adventure begin! Thank you.”
Changing my thoughts during those dark moments saved me. I was able to function. I took a shower, brushed my teeth, got dressed, ate some food, made a plan of action, and finally felt some much-needed hope and inspiration.
It sounds so simple doesn’t it, to change thoughts in order to feel inspired? It seems like “magical thinking” advice, like something a “crazy” person would do. Yet, it works.
At three in the morning after tossing and turning I sat up and turned on the light. Fearful and negative thought threatened to freeze my initiative again. So I closed my eyes, connected to God and thought: ” This is my perfect opportunity, a change and a new path to take! I will trust this moment and be excited and not afraid! Angels, please help me. Thank you thank you thank you”
I turned on my laptop and applied for a long shot credit card, guarding negative thoughts and surrounding expectations to simply trusting the universe. Acceptance. Beautiful! Thank you Thank you Thank you.
I spent that morning cutting out magazine photos of exactly the home I wanted to live in, pasting words and images onto a poster board which became a vision board collage of the desired outcome. The act of making a vision board seemed outwardly like a waste of precious time, but inwardly it was empowering me.
Each photo I cut out, each affirmative word I pasted, was a positive shift to hope. I was moving out of a paralyzing negative thought trap, into an open-minded, anticipation of what life has to offer. I felt it. I allowed it. I hung the vision board above the head of my bed and stared at it every time I entered the room. I began to “see” a positive outcome.
I told neighbors who bought my chicken eggs, about needing a new home for our beloved hens, ducks, and rooster. I decided that each day I would look at least three homes no matter what. When I felt lack of inspiration I looked anyway. When I felt fear, I prayed and reaffirmed the exciting change I was going through.
Taking action and changing my thoughts from fear-based ruminations, to ones filled with hope made a dramatic difference in my world. I fantasized about a new home, I asked for help, but didn’t sit around waiting for lightning to strike for that help – instead I talked to God and Angels while driving in my car to the different addresses and agencies saying thank you for the tiniest of signs: ” Please help me find the perfect home for us. Thank you Thank you Thank you!”
Miracles started happening, like when our neighbor found a home for all the eggs layers, our sweet ducks and our tame and loveable rooster. They all went to good urban gardens.
One day I pulled into a cute little purple house full of character and artistic stained glass windows. I loved it. Every element that I was seeking, including a short walk to the local co-op, was included. I felt thrilled and excited with the home, it compelled me to contact the rental agency about it immediately. After leaving a message with the agent who didn’t answer, I went ahead and drove to the business office to beg for an application right away.
“I want the purple house please!” I announced to the woman at a computer. “I love it, it’s perfect.”
“I can see why” She answered, “You are wearing a purple shirt! But that one is already taken unless they don’t get approved.” I filled out an application anyway, just in case.
“There is another house that just came up for rent!” The agent exclaimed, “You may like just as much as the purple house. It just happened before you walked in the door.” She continued as she pulled it up on her screen, “Here it is! A large back yard with garden beds. Say the word and you will be the first in line!” ”
I told her yes, for sure if I didn’t get the purple house. I knew there must be a reason I was compelled to rush to her office. I released attachment to all outcomes and allowed events to unfold, trusting this was divinely guided. I could feel Angels helping me.
Each time my mind gravitated to a negative thought I sent out a prayerful “Thank you!”, to Angels and to God. This happened quite often, day and night at that time. My fearful thoughts would threaten to take over and I would shift to “Thank you so much for the right place, right time, perfect change. All our needs met. Thank you Thank you Thank you!”
When I saw the new house, I was flabbergasted. It was a dream home in every way. It looked so much like my vision board! I was approved despite the competition, rusty credit, lack of savings, and abrupt uprooting. Thank you thank you thank you!
True, circumstances are different for each of us, but what is the same is our capacity to change thoughts from negative and fear-based, to positive and faith-based ones, so that Angels can enter our lives and help us.
Don’t forget to ask for help and then say, Thank you thank you thank you! . . . each step of the way!
