If you watched the Secret DVD or read the book, you remember the Genie that said “Your wish is my command.” Before your wishes are granted, you need to know what it is that you want.
I don’t believe in Genies , but I do believe in a Power greater than myself that hears my prayers and answers the desires of my heart. I wrote in my journal on New Year’s Day that I wanted to travel this year. I didn’t know HOW it would happen, but that didn’t matter.
Two weeks later, I found myself in a lovely bed and breakfast in Newport, RI. I love to go to the ocean and just BE. I met the owner of the bed and breakfast when I arrived. Although we hadn’t spoken to one another, we recognized each other from a holistic workshop we took together in the summer. I couldn’t wait to drive out to the ocean to sit in the sun and listen to the crashing waves.
I felt refreshed and renewed when it was time to go home. As I was about to leave, I heard that small still voice of God say, give her your book. When I returned the key, I thanked her for a wonderful stay and handed her my book. She thanked me and we stood in her kitchen chatting. She mentioned that she was taking a trip to Arizona for 3 weeks in March. I told her I also wanted to travel this year.
To my delight and surprise, she said “Would you like to stay here and take care of my dog for the 3 weeks I’m gone? It will be like a vacation for you. ” I am sure my mouth dropped open as I immediately said YES. . .
I’m amazed how God works things out when I trust and allow things to come to me. I look forward to the surprises that God has in store for me this year.
Approximately 10 years ago, I began to explore The Law of Attraction and the principles of manifestation. At that time, I listened to a series of tapes by Wayne Dyer in which he taught the Meditations for Manifesting. According to Dr. Dyer he had been given these meditations by an Indian guru who wanted him to introduce this practice to the Western world.
The meditation was to be practiced 20 minutes per day in the morning and evening. I decided to give it a try. I did the meditation daily for about one month when an amazing series of events occurred.
One day a co-worker came into work and mentioned to me that her friend in Maui, Hawaii had just asked her to house sit for 3 weeks but she couldn’t go. I said, “Maui, Hawaii? I’ve always wanted to go there. I’ll do it!” She looked at me doubtfully, but I told her I was completely serious. We called her friend in Maui and I spoke to her.
A few weeks later I found myself in a gorgeous house overlooking the ocean in one of the most beautiful locations on Maui. I was about one mile from a group of amazing 5 star resorts and the most beautiful beaches in the world. I had full access to this house and the woman’s car.
To top it all off, one of the resorts down the road was the famous world-class Grand Wailea, which happened to be mentioned on the manifesting tapes that I originally listened to by Wayne Dyer. He spoke about how he and his family had spent some time at this very exclusive Hawaiian resort. When I heard that, I thought “I want to go there!” Much to my surprise, within one month, I was there. While staying in this house, I was able to go over to the Grand Wailea almost daily, use their beach and swim in their amazing pools.
It was the trip of a lifetime and one that I will always remember.

I just sold my house in Florida, which was one of the hardest hit real estate markets in this country, and as the value of my house declined each month, it would have been very easy for me to sink into despair.
One night, when I could feel waves of doubt washing over me, I decided to go jogging and clear my head (which you can do on a warm balmy, evening in Florida!) Since there was a full moon shining, everything seemed to glow, and as I ran, I asked The Divine to “show me the way to freedom.” Then, for good measure, I said a prayer to my father, and asked him to send me a little luck of the Irish, (since I am Irish after all)! That’s when a new sign in my neighborhood caught my attention because it said FREEDOM REALTY…
I smiled and whispered a prayer of thanks, and then quickly ran home to record the phone number. The next day, I called Freedom Realty and spoke with the owner, who is an attorney and we scheduled a date for us to meet at my house. I couldn’t help but shed a few tears of joy when I realized that we planned to meet on what would have been my father’s birthday (who was also an attorney).
It did take a while to sell my house, but eventually, I received the news that I finally had an offer. Excited, I hopped in the car to sign the paperwork and when I pulled into the parking lot of my attorney’s office, the car in front of me braked suddenly. This caused me to notice its license plate TAYLOR, which just “happened” to be my father’s name…
These synchronicities from the Universe happen to me all of the time, and here is what I have come to believe. Even when you are faced with conditions that seem completely overwhelming, the universe is always on your side. You are constantly being guided and love is all around you. You just have to look for the signs.

I can remember it as if it were yesterday as the song played on the radio. I jumped up and turned up the volume to hear the words better. “Honey I miss you and I’m being good. An angel came and took her away.” Tears rolled down my cheeks and goosebumps spread across my body. My mother’s name was Honey.
The song Honey, by Bobby Goldsboro was written shortly after my mother died 42 years ago on New Year’s Day. I still hear the song and it touches me as deeply as it did the first day I heard it. I know it’s my mother’s way of communicating with me and letting me know she’s with me and everything is okay. That’s just like my mother to have a song written after her.
I am open to signs from my mother, especially around the anniversary of her death. On New Year’s day, I spent time in prayer thinking about the past year and what I wanted to create in 2010. I wanted to feel my mother’s presence and hoped to hear the song. I felt disappointed, but trusted she would show up on her terms,not mine.
I left church and drove to my daughter’s house for a visit. Of course, I put the radio on hoping I would hear Honey. It had been quite awhile since I heard the song and even wondered if they still played it. No Honey!
When I arrived at my daughter’s house, she was all excited because a friend had just told her that the house on the next street (that abbutted her property) was for sale. It had been her dream to buy this house so she could farm the land. Mary is an herbalist and grows and harvests her own vegetable and plants. (www.farmacyherbs.com)
Mary didn’t know the woman who owned the house and was eager to introduce herself and let her know of her intentions. We walked around the block, rang the doorbell and waited. Mary introduced herself and said “I’m your neighbor and live in the house behind you.” The woman was pleasant and invited us in. My jaw dropped when she told us her name was Honey. Not only was her name Honey, but her elderly mother who lived with her was Honey.
My daughter and I just looked at one another in amazement as the chills went down our spines.
I didn’t hear the song play on the radio, but meeting Honey today was our sign from heaven that all is well.
