I had an experience on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles this past week that I have to share.
I was scrolling through my iPod to find a song to listen to when I looked at the TV monitor above my head. There was an image of a man riding an escalator up from the Subway in Los Angeles. Since the subway opened after I moved from LA, I had the thought that it would be ironic if the first time I rode the subway there were an earthquake and I would lose my legs. I then thought, what would I do if I lost my legs? I would get in a wheel chair, go about my life and do what I have always wanted to do . . . inspire people.
As I thinking this, I came across an album of covers by Mandy Moore that I own, but have only listened to one song, Anticipation. I saw a song I had never even heard of called Moonshadow, and selected in. I usually listen to 2-3 seconds of an intro and then skip to another part of the song to get a feel of what it really sounds like. I scrolled and dropped my finger about the middle of the song….right where the lyrics say
And if I ever lose my legs, I won’t moan, and I won’t beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if…. I won’t have to walk no more.
I couldn’t believe my ears. I scrolled back and listened again. Literally seconds after I had the thought of losing my legs, I select a song (out of 10,000 on my iPod) and drop in exactly with the words I was just thinking. This isn’t as if I was thinking of some thought of love and a similar love thought/song shows up! How many songs talk about losing one’s legs? I knew instantly that this was a message from the Universe that I was in the right place at the right time and it wasn’t about me literally losing my legs. Yet I knew there had to be another message. It came to me as I was getting ready for bed that evening. It was an affirmation of what I was thinking before (and what the song is about). We take what life gives us and make something positive out of it, we will be happy and prosperous…and may be able to inspire someone along the journey!
I also learned from the power we have to call upon the universe. I synched up the message of the universe with my index finger. We are powerful Beings.
The synchronicity didn’t stop there with the iPod. I even thought, do I dare to test the universe? As I was looking for my next song, I saw the Evita soundtrack with Antonio Bandaras and Madonna. I paused, but continued my search. Finally, I shuffled. The first song that came on was from Evita Broadway soundtrack. It was one of my favorite songs, “A Night of a Thousand Stars”. I thought, that was ironic . . . dare I say coincidence? But I like the movie soundtrack version better. Wouldn’t you know, 3 songs later, the same song came on from the movie soundtrack. As if I needed another affirmation, but I am grateful for the confirmation!
We have the power to co-create our lives with our Creator. God supplies all the tools, its up to us what we build.
