It’s like magic!

May 09, 2024

Have you ever made a decision that was so crystal clear that the outcome magically appeared? 

I have too. For the past year or so, I’ve been exploring an abundance practice. The results are delightful. 

It started with a recent trip to Denver. I had an entire afternoon to myself, which I’d normally love, but instead I felt edgy and restless, with no idea what to do with the rest of my time. I realized I just wanted to be back home, which meant leaving a day early.

This wasn’t simply an idea, it was a KNOWING. The moment I thought of going home early is the moment I jumped into action. I quickly booked a flight that left in 90 minutes (while I was in my hotel room, about 40 minutes away from the airport). I booked an Uber, then texted other people to ask for help and support.

That’s all I did to get myself home. In return, the Universe / Providence / the Big Kahuna made it all happen. 

—>  I got to the airport and through security in plenty of time (despite not leaving myself plenty of time)

—>  I was upgraded, then got the entire row to myself

—>  A really nice driver in a brand-new Lincoln picked me up

—> Everyone around me played a part, from my coach who cheered me on via text, the other passengers smiling and saying nice things to me, the flight attendant giving me the entire basket of snacks (!) and getting as excited as I was about the Sun Chips

—>  Mother Nature put on a spectacular show just outside the airplane window as we flew over crazy-beautiful clouds, stunning Lake Michigan and a very peaceful Jamaica Bay

—> AND I got a refund from the hotel, despite the “no refunds for early departures” policy

Not only did I get home when I wanted to, I had a bigger, more beautiful, and richer experience than I ever expected.

Let’s be honest, this whole thing could have gone much differently. If I had stopped to think about it, I probably wouldn’t have even booked that flight. I definitely could have chewed off all my nails worrying about getting to the airport in time. I could have been crammed in the back of the plane, next to the bathroom, silently hating humanity.

Instead, I committed, I trusted, I moved and I asked for help. 

Years ago, someone shared this quote with me:

The moment one commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

This is a big part of my daily abundance practice now - making a strong decision of what I truly want. As a result, I’m getting what I want. It’s like magic 💫

I’m putting together a web event to share my abundance practice - I love what it’s doing for me and I believe it can help others. Hit Reply if you’d like a heads-up once I’ve finalized it. Let’s play with this together!
