Living in the Stream of Yes

Palpable Faith


We can listen in wonder to what unfolds in the lives of others and feel interested. Hmm isn’t that great for them. Still we feel at arm’s lengths from that kind of occurrence, it might happen to others, but…

We can like our lives and not feel particularly excited about them. Sometimes we reach for a knowing that this can also be true for us. We want to experience KNOWING it can happen to us, too: a palpable faith.

Here is what happened for one woman recently.

Lauralee was focusing on inner work and was in the process of healing past hurts and putting more of her focus on positives in her life. 

For this day near her birthday L scheduled a healing session for her body and also planned to buy herself some birthday treats. Off she went on her day, feeling good.

On the first stop our star chatted with the Dina, the receptionist, as L waited. D had been raised Hawaiian and enjoyed a close relationship with Jesus. Dina deeply felt his presence all around her, and she knew she was protected. Lauralee admired such a faith and wanted that for herself.

L proceeded to many stops on her itinerary. At the tire store treated Lauralee excellently. At a plant store, this dear one found all the items she needed, bought herself a lovely big petunia that was just what she had envisioned.

Rolling on a wonderful mood, spontaneously our star got a hit to take herself for a lamb burger, one of her favorite meals. As she sat with her meal, she noticed a a guy with an army uniform seated nearby.

To entertain herself, Lauralee wondered what he had done recently and how his service had been.

Then in a few minutes he caught her eye and they did began to chat.  He had served and now was teaching criminal law at UVA. Lauralee asked him some questions and had fun in her exchange with him.

Back in their own company, she saw him get up and leave. Soon L finished and called for her bill.

“Oh no,” said the waitress, “That gentleman that left ahead of you had covered your bill—he took care of that about half hour ago.”

Our heroine was stunned. Not only did this man pay her check, he had taken that action before the two of them chatted.  The staff knew and kept the secret. These “strangers” created a birthday celebration for her–it felt so miraculous—almost beyond belief. How had she attracted a benefactor? He was kind before they even spoke!

Riding home this dear woman realized that she felt so supported by the Universe. At the start of the day with Dina, Lauralee wished to know faith and was gifted with the visceral experience in the next several hours.

Wow what a birthday!
