“Something Amazing Happens to me Today!” This is the affirmation the members of our ministry are working with this week based on last Sunday’s talk and Pam Grout’s book, “E-Cubed.” Some truly amazing results have occurred over the past few days for each of us, simply by setting this intention before getting out of bed each morning.
Today, just happens to be Friday the 13th. It has always been, for me anyway, an amazing day. And, this has been the result of the intention I set for this day based on an experience from my childhood.
When I was in the 3rd or 4th grade, I was working on a science project and drawing a picture of the solar system. It was Friday the 13th and I had recently heard that it was an unlucky day. As I struggled with the drawing, using dishes, glasses, cups and saucers as templates for the planets, I voiced my concerns about this very unlucky situation. My mother told me that a day could only be unlucky if I believed in such things. As I struggled with creating the correct proportions of planets with my very limited circular tools, I considered this idea. And suddenly, everything changed!
My brother, who was married, much older than I but living nearby showed up with a contraption called a compass and showed me how to use it. Amazing!! I could make circles in whatever size I chose! What had been limited and frustrating only moments before became a work of joy.
Today, as my husband and I wait for a phone call that will likely mark the beginning of a path some would call challenging, I am affirming “Something Amazingly Awesome Happens to us today!” and I believe it. Friday the 13th has never failed to offer me something wonderful. Whatever the message we receive today, I know there will be opportunities to expand and the circle of Divine Love to be expressed through this is unlimited. The circumference of our experience will be determined in proportion to our intention of living in this infinite, spiritual principle; “There is only one Power, one Presence, one Activity in our lives and in the multi-verse and we are one in it.” Today and every day are amazing opportunities to be the expression of this one Power and Presence that I call God.
