Recently by good friend Susan Sheehan blogged about something listening to her thoughts. Things she wanted to happen started happening all over the place. I believe the universe was listening.
I truly do think that if you put your intentions out there, that is where you will be lead. For instance, here is one of my own examples. I had always thought that it would be wonderful to have a job/career that I could do anywhere. So I could live anywhere I wanted. From a very young age I have wanted this and thought this. It stemmed really from wanting to live in a small mountain town, in Northern Ca. I still love the mountains in CA, however I know I just couldn’t do cold snow for that long. Anyway I digress. I didn’t know what the job would be or how it would come about, but it is here. I now have a job where I can live anywhere, thanks to the internet.
Another example. About 9 months before I quit my last “real” job, I was at a mangers meeting doing one of those “get to know each other” exercises. The question was posed, if you could do anything, anything at all, what would it be? My answer was to have the freedom to travel anywhere, all over the US for an unlimited amount of time. Three months later we bough the RV. Six months later I was unemployed, homeless and making my way to Maine for the summer. At the time I had no idea how that could be done, it was just something I put out there.
I think you get the gist. I think we should put our intentions “out there”….then listen carefully for when the universe answers us, so we don’t let it pass us by. I could have easily let my chance to roam the US in the RV pass me by. It does sound crazy to sell your house and quit your job to go wondering around vagabondish. However, from that adventure I got to travel the US for 4 and 1/2 years and I ended up with a job that means I can live anywhere. Thank you Universe!
My next intention is to write a book and get published. I hope you are listening Universe…I know I am.
