Are you a QUEEN?

Posted Posted by admin in Blog (Weekly), Blogs     Comments No comments

I love how we are always guided to the next right action for our highest good, whether that be to a situation, our next adventure, or a person.

I was taking my walk this week when I passed a younger woman with an older gentleman in a walker. As I always do, I said, “Hello.” The woman said, “I love your hat.” I smiled and said, “Thanks.” The older gentleman then said, “Are you a QUEEN?” (I found out later that the woman was his caregiver taking him for his daily walk.)

That’s all I needed to hear. I stopped in my tracks as if to say, “How did you know? Why did you call me a QUEEN?” I said, “Yes, I am a QUEEN. When my husband proposed to me 6 years ago, he got down on his knees and said, I am your KING, you are my QUEEN, would you like to make it legal?”

We introduced ourselves and I proceeded to tell them my STORY of how I moved to Maui by myself, knowing that I would meet my soul mate and get married!

The woman appeared stunned and said, “I have been on Maui since January and I have been praying to meet my soul mate, but I haven’t met him yet. I’m going to be 61 in May.” I said, “No worries, I was 65 when I met Larry and he was 73. We were best friends for 2 years before we became a couple. We both needed to do some inner work first.”

What an opportunity to share my faith and to encourage her to not give up on her dreams. We both had the chills and knew that it was a divine encounter and not a coincidence that we met. I shared that we had written a book called “It’s Never Too Late for Love.”

We hugged one another as we said our goodbyes. I proceeded to my car when I heard the small, still, voice of God. “Go to the car and get one of your books to give to her.” She was thrilled when I shared “God wants you to have our book.” She had tears and said, “Thank you, WOW.”

Love is always guiding us and showing us the way. Do you listen to that small, still, voice of God within or do you dismiss it because you don’t trust it?  It takes practice and a commitment to listen and follow through. Miracles always happen when we trust and listen.

I woke up one morning with the words LET GO AND LET GOD. I was surprised and wondered why Spirit would put those words on my heart. I had never given much thought to what it meant to LET GOD.

It’s clear what I need to let go of: doubt, control, fear, not being good enough, ageism, personalizing, comparing, complaining, future tripping, jealousy, judgments, beliefs that no longer serve me, etc.

I asked myself, “What does it mean to LET GOD?” I ALLOW God to:

·        Lead me

·        Guide me

  •  Breathe me

·        Provide for me

·        Protect me

·        Love me

·        Live me

·        Use me

·        Be me

·        Do me

Growing up, I referred to God as HE. God is neither male nor female, but BOTH. God is energy. Everything is energy. I started using SHE when I refer to God and it is very comforting. For example:

·        SHE plans my day and shows me the way.

·        SHE is my peaceful presence.

When Larry and I started dancing, I wanted to LEAD and didn’t like to FOLLOW. It was frustrating and didn’t work as we were tripping over one another. We weren’t in sync and it wasn’t a smooth, beautiful dance.  

It feels the same way with Spirit. I have learned to let go of control, fixing, and planning. Instead of leading and trying to make things happen, I allow things to unfold in a DIVINE DANCE. It is easier when God is leading and I am following as I am in the flow and experience magic and miracles..

 She is the one who dances me and gives me life as I Let Go and Let God.
