As I sat down to write my blog today, I opened my journal and read these words that spoke to my heart. I am not sure what spiritual book I read them from, so I cannot give credit.
“Love is synonymous with God. It is an unfailing and unchanging mine to draw upon. When I allow love to permeate my entire being, it becomes a powerful source driving out any doubt, sadness or fear. My heart fills with the mighty magnetic force of love and I am empowered to do only good and to share only love. My every thought, word and action expresses the love of God in me. Aglow with God’s love, my heart becomes a magnet attracting good from every direction.” Unknown
For years, my daily mantra and prayer has been to be peaceful, to love and to serve. It feels like a miracle when my dreams are manifested. Yes, it is a miracle but I also know my dreams have come true because of my faith, trust, willingness to receive, surrendering, confidence and creativity.
I had a dream to live on the ocean for as long as I can remember. I felt in my heart that it would happen, but I didn’t know HOW – that was up to God. I needed to do some “inner work” and to know that I deserved and was worthy of God’s love and good. I learned to say YES to God’s plan for my life and to wait for God’s perfect timing to unfold. That wasn’t always easy because I felt impatient at times, but kept surrendering to God’s will and love in my heart.
I am still in awe when I sit on my lanai and look out over the ocean because I am now living in a 2 million dollar home. I am humbled and filled with gratitude and joy. This is not to brag by any means, but to inspire you to be open and to receive God’s good in your life.
Many of you have been following me for years and have witnessed my struggles, fears and transformation. I have not held back because I chose to be authentic and show you how I did it so you can do it. I have been stepping out in faith for years BEFORE I had all of the answers or the money or the know how to do something. When you do this, you ALLOW God to take the reigns and provide you with everything you need.
I have a chapter in my book, “Simply a Woman of Faith” about how the money came when I was looking for an editor for my book.
“With the manuscript complete, I needed to find an editor. Prices ranged from sixty dollars an hour to one hundred and twenty five dollars an hour. I had no idea how long it would take to edit my book and how much it would cost. I sensed it would take a while since I had no formal training in writing. I prayed and asked God to lead me to the right editor.
My son, Tim, said to me ,“Mom, you have to change your yard sale mentality when it comes to looking for an editor.” “You’re right Tim, I always want a bargain, but I’m not willing to do that with my book. I want the best editor I can find and I don’t care how much it costs.”
After checking out a few different editors, I called the Book Coach, Lisa Tener. I knew in my heart that I wanted her to edit my book. She also happened to be the most expensive, but she was the best.
Okay God, where’s the money going to come from? This could be very expensive by the time she’s through editing.
I asked for a dream that night. In my dream I was walking up a ladder into the sky. In my spirit, I knew God was saying – The sky’s the limit. I called Lisa the next day and hired her, trusting the money would come. A half hour later, I checked on line for the balance in my checking account. I received my paycheck the day before, but hadn’t looked at it since it goes directly into the bank.
What’s this extra money God? Where did it come from?
When I reached work, I asked about my last paycheck and discovered that I’d received a performance award. In the past, we’d always been informed of our awards at the awards ceremony. When the editing was complete, it turned out that the extra money covered the bill and it was exactly what I needed. My God is full of surprises and loves to shower His blessings on me when I trust Him and step out in faith.”
Moving to Maui was certainly stepping out in faith because I didn’t know what was going to happen or how it would happen. I showed up every day, TRUSTED my inner voice, God, and followed my heart.
When I meet new people in Maui, they often ask me, “What brought you here?” I always respond with “My heart.” My heart knew what I needed. Today, my heart sings and I am full of joy and gratitude that I had the grace to follow my heart. I have manifested love and the desires of my heart. Aglow with God’s love, my heart becomes a magnet attracting good from every direction.
Are you following your heart? Do you know how to follow your heart? Do you know what makes your heart sing? I would be happy to help you manifest the desires of your heart as I have. You deserve to be happy.
