All You Need to Do Is Ask (or why Spirit rocks as a manifesting partner)!
Updated: September 29, 2014
Dearest Sparkle Being of Fabulosity,
Have you ever asked for a sign from Spirit and got one you can’t deny? Did you follow it? Did you question it? Did you ignore it? Did you jump for joy in awe and reverence?
I have a great story to share with you and hope you will share yours with me too.
A week before I left New Hampshire to go to Toronto to shoot my TV show Messages From Spirit I spoke to my Feng Shui advisor – the amazing Angel de Para ( www.earthluck.org) with whom I spoke about my sense of feeling like we needed to move. He concurred that my beautiful house, which we loved so much, no longer was energetically in alignment with Marc and me and moving was exactly what we needed to do.
Because he has always been uncannily accurate about the energy of my environment and what we could expect in certain places, I listened.
Truth is we (more so Marc) have felt quite isolated out here in the woods and felt we wanted to be closer to NYC. Although I am not a city girl anymore and need to be in nature, we met half way. Remember the old TV show Green Acres? Reverse the roles and you will get Marc and me- he thrives in the action, whilst I would love to hang out with Wilbur the pig, a bunch of birds and dogs somewhere in Wyoming or Montana.
You get the picture.
So I asked for a very specific scenario.
Spirit, could you make it easy for this to happen if it be your will?
Put up road- blocks if I have lost my mind.
I am fine either way. No attachment.
So we put our house up for sale went up to Toronto and sold it in 3 days.
Then the fun began.
I finished shooting the show at the end of last week so Marc and I, and the two dogs piled in the car and parked ourselves in a hotel in Connecticut and started looking.
We needed an East-facing house (for Feng Shui),which our poor realtor had a very hard time finding as for some reason all the houses for rent were North/ South.
The day of our house hunting tour I was overcome with a sense that Spirit was the one who would pick, not me. So I asked for a specific sign.
“Spirit please send me a dragonfly to the house you want us to live in. Make it so obvious I can’t deny it. No dragonfly? No house, and we will keep looking.
The thing is – we are kinda on a deadline.
We need to be out of our house in a month.
Thank you in advance.”
So we go from house to house. Some houses had the ghost of Tony Soprano in them, some too big, some too dark, one too old and most definitely haunted and most too expensive. It was a rude awakening.
One had a dead bird on it while the others had bugs but not the right kind. I started trying to claim a housefly for a dragonfly near a house with a swimming pool. We both started second guessing ourselves.
What had we done?
Then a house came up on the market and we went to see it.
I knew immediately it felt different even though it did not tick off my “wants list” it did fit our needs. Yet by then we were exhausted and crabby and just wanted to go home and regroup. Maybe I was wrong?
Yet, there was something about the realtor that I couldn’t put my finger on. In conversation we found we had mutual friends in common. I liked her immediately so this was very cool.
Still, Marc was not having any of it and we were about to leave.
In the distance I saw what I thought to be a hummingbird, or a toy helicopter. Lo and behold the biggest dragonfly I have EVER set eyes on flew right over to us and circled around us and my jaw dropped.
This was my sign! Thank You Spirit.
We left and my husband was not having anything to do with my dragonfly sign. The next day we decided to revisit the house before going home – homeless. I solicit the help of my parents in spirit. They always had good house karma. I asked for another sign.
I was so torn and trying to negotiate the meaning of the dragonfly. Maybe it was just the sign to make friends with the woman? After all, the dragonfly flew right around her like a buzzy halo? Maybe it wasn’t about the house after all and I was just getting a new friend?
Using the analytical mind to decipher signs is like trying to turn on a light with a blowtorch. Not the right toolbox.
We looked again. Marc is resigned and I am hopeful.
Then I hear him say. “Colette did you see this? You should come look at this.”
I was worried he was going to show me a nest of termites or something.
There, in a frame directly in front of Marc, surrendered and smiling was a picture of a monarch butterfly – the symbol for my father.
Spirit delivers exactly what we need when we need it. Not always what we want but what we need.
When you ask for a sign and get none, well that’s a sign too! It means No.
My husband then recounted a story to the realtor. It’s the one about the man who asked God to save him during a flood. He had turned down a man in a rowboat, a man in a powerboat and a man in a helicopter saying, “No thanks, I am waiting for God to come.”
When he did not survive the flood he showed up at the pearly gates and he asked God, “Why have you forsaken me?” God replied, “What do you mean? I sent you a rowboat, a powerboat and a helicopter!”
I got a dragonfly, then a monarch butterfly, and yes a cool new friend.
We got the message. We move at the end of the month.
Your turn! What sign(s) have you received from Spirit that you could not ignore? Did you follow it? What happened?
All my love
PS. Come to upstate New York for my event at Omega. I will teach you how to have the kind of Vision that allows you greater access to Spirit and the miracles that come as a result.
