Recently I traveled to Arizona to visit family and celebrate my niece Chelsey’s high school graduation. Plans of the trip began nine months prior and I often wondered if I’d really be able to go. Yet instead of looking at the current circumstances, I chose to trust my intuition and allow the ideal outcome to manifest. And boy did it!
Originally my mother suggested that she, my daughter Brittney and I take the trip to AZ and she would pay the airfare for us all. So we booked a one way fair, while contemplating stopping by Las Vegas on the way home. Days passed, life happens, and months later mom’s mouth became infected. This required having her teeth pulled and getting dentures. The trauma of this experience took away any excitement she had about going on the trip, so she backed out.
Now not only was she dealing with her teeth, her memory was getting worse since her stroke a year before. Remembering that she said she would pay the airfare costs was a promise that was passing Brittney and I by, and with our budgets in the rear, paying for the return flight wasn’t an expense we could incur with ease.
As time flew by I was troubled by the fact that no one from our family would be there to show Chelsey how proud we were of her graduating. Being a woman of my word, it bothered me tremendously that we said we were all coming months ago. So I bit the bullet and paid for our airfare home with a hope and a prayer, taking out my plastic trusting that the money would be made somehow.
The day arrived. With our bags all packed and ready to go mom called and asked me if we needed money for the trip. I kindly said, “Well yes, how about paying for the airfare?” She and dad drove over before we left and she gave me money and a note. “Honey, here is a little something for you and Brittney to have a good time. Thanks for representing our family.” Mom came through and paid for our flight with a little extra to boot.
As our trip unfolded it became obvious that having mom with us would have been restrictive and it was a blessing that Brittney and I got to spend such quality time together.
More and more blessings were poured out on us during our vacation. Prior to leaving, my good friend Lisa invited Brittney and I to stay at her winter home in Rio Verde while in AZ. Not only that, she flew up and spent three days with us, and she gave us the keys to the house for a week, and the jeep, grapefruit and lemon trees to enjoy, and a fitness club and pool to relax at.
Now years ago I made a commitment to myself that I would return to AZ and spend a day in Sedona enjoying the spirit of the red rock canyons and spending time being filled with the powerful energy of the vortexes. This experience had been beckoning me onward for quite some time. I knew there was something there for me to do, understand and experience. It would be a gift to me from me, and a way to powerfully nurture my deeper self and treat myself extra special.
Listening to the voice within, Lisa, Brittney and I took off for a day in Sedona that would enrich our lives beyond expectations. With a plan in place, we stopped for a potty break and a chanced encounter would alter our agenda in such a wonderful way.
Now all I can say to keep this story short, is that I left Sedona without the pain that I came with in my lower back. For months I had been dealing with this issue and intuitively knew it had something to do with an energy block I could not remove on my own.
My passion for helping people heal, relax, and remove emotional barriers with sound, prompted me to stop in a store for sound therapy. Learning about a new tool for my practice and clients, I took the extra money mom gave me and purchased a 98% Quarts Crystal sound bowl. My glance noticed it sitting off to the side and upon closer investigation I saw that it was on sale for 50% off. When I played it I knew instantly I was meant to bring it home and use in my hypnotherapy and stress reduction sessions.
Crystal sound bowls have different notes and mine is a #C. This note helps bring the body back to balance. It releases emotional blocks, works the root chakra and harmonizes energy to a healthy level where the body can heal, improve its immune system, and blissfully release stress and muscle tension.
Returning home and after using my crystal bowl on numerous clients offering a super special (http://www.mindscapesunlimited.com/stress-reduction-2.html), I clearly realize that trusting my intuition and doing what I felt was best, blessed me, my family, and my clients beyond imagination.
There are times when we need to move beyond our fear, ignore our circumstances, and trust that everything will work out somehow. I was willing to work extra hard to pay my way, yet in the end, I truly give the credit to God and the Spirit in me, for manifesting my desires.
