I sit with a steaming cup of Earl Grey tea on a crisp Fall morning. I am a storyteller and teacher in this lifetime. I share my personal experiences in story form. May I invite you to take what resonates with you and leave the rest? I talk out loud to my spiritual guides. I feel their presence in my life always. Yes always! We have no secrets. Now sipping my tea, my mind drifts in remembrance of asking my guides for love. I remember it well.
I had just moved into a lovely, two-bedroom apartment in Walnut Creek, California. I had an inner yearning to feel loved by another truly. It felt like an emptiness within. I thought a relationship could fill it. It was about 2005 on my timeline. I knew enough of magic and how to manifest my desires. I carefully created my intentions, great sense of humor, good-looking, loving, fun, loyal, available emotionally, and more. I added my heartfelt feelings to draw the perfect, unconditional love relationship. I went about getting the right potions, oils, herbs, and candles to assemble to draw this love into my life. On an evening in Summer, I cast my net wide and far with magic. Then let it go. The rest is letting go and trusting the Divine and my guides to handle the details. With a happy heart, filled with gratitude, knowing that all will manifest better than I can picture for myself. Have you ever heard the phrase? "Be careful what you ask for"?
A few weeks later, I was waiting for my son and his wife to come by and pick me up to go to the movies. I was sitting by the open dining window. A gentle breeze blew the curtains out into a billow that looked like a head sail. On this breeze, I heard a bird sing loud and clear. It was not like anything I had ever heard before in our neighborhood. It drew me to look outside and see if I could identify what bird it was. I scanned the treetops and rooftops. They were directly across from my window; a small green bird was on the rooftop. We are talking bright lime green. He was calling out loudly. So I yelled back, "what?" he paced a little and yelled out to me again. Okay, what do you want? I asked. He then flew right over my building across the street.
I followed to find him way up in a tree. I stood below and told this bird I was not chasing you. You know where I live if you are meant to be in my life. You can come to me! My son then pulled up and saw me talking to the trees with my hands on my hips. There's nothing to see here, folks; I waved and laughed out loud. I jumped into my son's truck and off to the movies and a fun evening with my family. I returned home and walked across the street to see if my little guy was still there. I couldn't find him! I promptly went back home and went to sleep. The following day was a lazy warm summer Saturday. I opened up my place while it was still cool and sipped my coffee. Talking to a friend on the phone, I told her of my adventure with the bird. We laughed and wondered about the meaning. Standing at my screen door, I saw my neighbor looking under a parked car across the street on her hands and knees.
I called out what did you find? She said she thought there was a kitten. I opened the screen door and stepped out to talk with her. Her husband was at my front step and turned to me and said, "Look Out! Be careful, or you will step on him." I looked down and at my feet was the bird. I squatted down and held out my hand. I said, "Hey buddy, how are you? He stepped up into my hand. I offered him water, and he drank. He ran around my kitchen floor, chasing the small cat ball with a jingle bell. We played fetch, and I laughed as he clowned around. One of the qualities I desired was a great sense of humor. I swear I heard my guides laughing. Here was the love I had asked for. My Buddy! We had our laughter, fun times, and yelling matches. We were together for about ten years. He left and transitioned in the winter of 2015.
So, in fond memory of My Buddy Bird, my lovebird who found me and stayed with me until death. One of the best teachers I have had in love to date.
The moral of this story is: When we ask for something, it is always given. Always so much more than we can picture for ourselves. Stay open, and expect something extraordinary! Keep an open mind, have a sense of humor, and expect miracles in your life. Life is so much more than what we can see. The DIVINE will always answer our requests for help in all areas. Expect the unexpected, and keep an open heart. Life is magical; we are magical!
