Before we went overseas, I received in the mail an invitation from a casino I visit for a dinner for all customers with birthdays in October. Not only that, but there was the opportunity to win cash prizes at the dinner. This was on the Tuesday following our arrival home on Saturday. I really thought I would be well enough by then to attend. However, I was not able to, and boy, did my Self let me have it! My Higher Self chose not to attend because of having diarrhea and still clearing. I planned to go a few days later and have some fun, but again I had to cancel. I was not, as they say, a happy camper as the clearing work seemed to go on and on. This was the longest I have ever spent clearing – apart from when I was teaching my Masters courses 5 years ago. I finally ventured out exactly one week from when we came home.
During the afternoon of having some fun, I managed to walk out of the casino with over $3,000. As I was watching the slot machine that I had chosen give me a jackpot (and also another, even larger amount), I became aware that this was a reward for the hard work I had been witness to during the week. Not only that, it was their way of letting me know that they cared and were supporting me in what I had been through. The next day someone wrote me and asked if I was ever aware of Spirit in my life; did I “feel” them? I wrote back to the person and said that, “Yes, I do feel them. I feel them each time I do something that really takes an enormous amount of energy from me” and how they always let me know that they are grateful for what I do. It is not always what I take, but also what people do to me.
