First, a bit of context. I don’t often feel emotionally low, but when I do, a walk in my neighborhood or a random conversation will immediately provide a lift. If I can do something kind or helpful for another person, that’s even better.
On this late April day, I was already on a walk and knew I needed more. So, I started a conversation with the Universe and requested help:
Please present me with exactly the person or experience I need to lift my spirits.
And that was delivered within minutes!
As I rounded the corner, a woman hurried up to me, stood a bit too close for comfort, and immediately started talking in what felt like an extremely fast download of information that she could not stop.
She started by telling me things about myself that I believe to be true, which was interesting. She then told me my lucky numbers (I disagree), important colors (definitely not), and that Friday was my lucky day (isn’t Friday magical for everyone?).
I will pause to note that this interaction was taking place in the middle of a very crowded farmers’ market. We were standing in the way of a multitude of people who kindly walked around us.
At some point she removed three stones from a small leather pouch, put them in my hands, and told me to make three wishes. She asked what I wished and told me all would be fulfilled in three months. These were pretty major wishes. For all to happen so quickly would definitely take a cluster of miracles from the Universe.
Something else was going on in my befuddled head. I remembered having met this woman five or more years ago. She came up to me at a Columbus Day street fair in my neighborhood and the experience was very similar. At that time, I was so taken aback that I immediately forgot everything she told me, so I never knew if she was accurate or not.
What I did, however, was share the experience with someone I know to be psychic. Her impression was that this woman was real. She needed money and knew I’d be safe to approach and offer a reading. As the current encounter was unfolding, I remembered being told this and chose to stay and listen.
Reflecting on the Experience
Did the Universe answer my request? Absolutely! I got home and immediately called a friend and laughed through this incredibly bizarre encounter. My spirits lifted and soared to amazing heights! Yes, I received exactly what I requested, and beyond anything I could have imagined.
Was it more than a laugh? Well, that is something I will only know over time. My three wishes are due to be realized in three months, so I’ll know in August if the Universe had something else up its metaphorical sleeve.
Given the wish rules regarding birthday candles, falling stars, and dandelion seed heads, I cannot state the three wishes or they will not be granted. But I just might post a follow-up.
People talk to God, to angels, to those who have passed. I talk to the Universe – well, and to those who have passed. I must say that I have never received a response so quickly, or so wild – and I absolutely love it!
Filling my life with laughter is one of the greatest gifts I can receive. Thank you, Universe! (And please don’t forget those wishes.)
