FAITH MONTH: DAY 2: “Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing. Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow. Isn’t that the way it works?” ― Diane Duane

This is such a wonderful phenomenon. The minute I set an intention to do something new or to make a change in something in my life, the Universe jumps in with both feet. It happens when I am working through an old idea or behavior or beliefs. They get reinforced for me 1000 times so I can no longer deny what they are.

Every asshole will come and show me who I am when I am acting in that way. Ugh! It is like everything is just waiting for me to get on board and then GO!!!! It is on!! I get tons, literally, of evidence and support from the Universe that I am on the right path. God’s favorite kid again!

I love this…and it has been this way since the day I walked into the doorway of that recovery home and began to hang out with some of you.

There was a TON of evidence and support and synchronistic events that made it possible for me to be in that place on that day and at that time in my life. Everything happened because of a dozen people I met in the first crucial months of this journey. And I was open because it was not possible for me to ignore any of it and pretend it wasn’t happening.

I allowed the opening and it was like the dam burst with a flood of interesting things to make me know I was in the right place and doing the right thing. Those of you who have hung out with me know how this goes. It is still the same…all the time, every day. I expect to be divinely guided and I always, always, always am.

I just wait for the angels, which is what I taught my husband. Look for angels and they will be there. He was blown away when we went to clear up some of his legal stuff at the jail and the lady had a pen with angels on it. He never doubted again that it would be like that.

Neither do I. The gifts have been too great to doubt anything ever again. I cannot and will not ever be that person who opens those gifts and then says, “what’s next?” I will just keep stepping out in faith, because I have never been disappointed. Only grateful for all of it.
