Rise About Guilt



I have a lot of people who reach out, overwhelmed with feelings of guilt. Today’s article is specifically about the guilt trips that others try and push on us.

Below is an excerpt from my recent book, The State of Being Love

What is a Guilt Trip?
If you’ve ever been made to feel bad if you did not do something that you otherwise would not do, then you have experienced the dreaded guilt trip. This includes doing something when.we are not feeling our best, going to places or events that you know you won’t enjoy as well as associating with people that you may not want to interact with. And because of the guilt trip we end up caving out of a feeling of obligation.

Over the years, I've heard some extreme cases counseling people, like Susan whose incident struck a chord. Although this happened over 40 years ago when she was no more than 5, it still stands out in her mind. It was early one Sunday morning and Susan wasn't feeling well. She had no temperature, but her head was aching and she told her mother that she didn’t want to go to services that morning. Her mother swiftly turned and told this young girl that if she didn't get herself out of bed and go to services, that she was going to hell.

Speaking to so many adults with similar stories made me realize that what is learned as young children becomes part of our overall belief system that we carry like a tattered handbag throughout our lives. 

I can relate to the art of the perfectly placed guilt trip, growing up in an Italian household. I loved my mother, but the guilt trips, oh my goodness, they were dished out as frequently as the homemade pasta and sauce that Italian moms are famous for. For this sensitive kid, it was at times more than I could handle. 

And it effected most of my young adult life as I continued to do things I didn’t enjoy because I was felt obligated to do so because of this guilt trip conditioning that I experienced in early youth.  

Doing something that you don’t want to do, well that’s ridiculous. Why should we as adults do things that we know that we won’t enjoy?  Yet we're conditioned to impose guilt on ourselves as if the people in our lives, like momma are still standing over us, even when they’re not.  Another big factor is that the emotion guilt vibrates much lower than other more pleasant emotions and is far down the list from Love, the emotion with the highest vibration of all

What Can You Do?.
Having had plenty of practice with this type of guilt, I decided back about 10 or 15 years ago that I no longer needed this experience. I think I’m old enough and wise enough to know when I won’t enjoy doing something. And if I am not going to enjoy something, I just don’t do it, period. And I don't feel one ounce of guilt based on my decision to only do what makes me happy.

If someone attempts to make me feel guilty, I just tell them, sorry, I don’t do guilt anymore. This may not make me miss popular, but I am definitely miss happier, vibrating higher as a result.  

So the next time someone attempts to guilt trip you, just smile, say no thank you and walk in the other direction, holding your head high and vibrating only love.

I hope this article serves you well as you rise above the guilt trip.

You cannot Live until you Forgive


When we let people in, whether it be with family, friends or physical partners we drop the barriers, giving them a glimpse inside us.  It’s when we let down our guard, that we are at our most vulnerable, giving our trust to another. Most times, what we gain are positive experiences, like the sharing of loving expressions, mutual energy, and an unlimited potential of positive growth. 

But like those few gems that we have met in our lifetimes, so too exist those unsavory characters that when we interact with them, betray our trust and we fall, victim.  
Over the years I have met so many people who have been physically assaulted, sexually violated, mentally abused and others being taken financially.  I can relate to each one of them because during my life, I have also been victim to physical assault, sexual and mental abuse and have been taken financially by people that I had given my trust.
I’ve put my fingers to keyboard to write this article many times, never quite ready to complete and publish it. I felt ashamed. I didn’t want people to discover that I was a victim, almost as if that were a crime.  

I spent more time analyzing the fact that the shame, an emotion at the opposite end of the spectrum of what a victim should feel stayed with me 10 times longer than any other emotion I had about the situation.  I discovered that it was a belief solidified decades ago. After releasing this false belief, I just shake my head that I spent even 1 minute living in shame based on what someone else did to me!

So What’s Next
What should we do when we have been mistreated?  Close down? Shut out the world?  Never trust again?

Over the decades, I think I’ve tried all the above, no one better than another. What I gleaned is like with all things, every experience while we are here helps us gain perspective and allows us to grow, even the ones we view as horrendous.  Although we are oblivious to it while enduring the ordeal, what I have taken away from every one of these unpleasant encounters, especially in adulthood, is that they always came at points in my life when I was ready for that next big growth spurt, each situation driving me onward with more courage, strength and resilience than I ever thought I had.

Forgiveness
And what about forgiveness? How does one forgive the unforgivable?
Whether it be fear that he or she will break down the door and attack you, take you against your will, use tactics to disorient and belittle you, or outright steal funds that you worked so very hard to obtain, you cannot live until you forgive, the pain in whatever fear based emotion eating away at your insides until they are raw. Never forget that forgiveness always includes both your abuser as well as yourself.
Today, I share with other victims, admitting that I trusted, that trust was betrayed, I rose above shame, forgave and am open to trust again. I am strong and stand tall. I am a voice to others out there who have been mistreated, my head held high.

Lighten Up! Your body and spirit will thank you


Have you ever lost sleep over some thought or situation? 

“Hey, man that's heavy” may show my age, but it it's what I commonly heard when I would provide a deep analytical explanation for something I examined that weighed on my mind. At times I would lose sleep over worrying about this or that or come to conclusions when the outcome of a situation was not yet determined. What I discovered is that allow things to weigh on us can actually have a physical effect on our health. 

I'm sure you've all blown up balloons for a birthday party.  Replace the air (Nitrogen (N2), Oxygen (O2), Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Water (H2O)) with helium and it starts to ascend. It's just science since the element helium plus the weight of the balloon is lighter than the air it displaces, allowing the balloon to float.

Imagine now that your body is a balloon that can only be inflated so much. Today, when I catch myself dissecting and over investigating an experience or I feel the heaviness of life in general, I have to tell myself, "Get out of your head and lighten up!  Life is only an agreed upon experience."

With these words the heaviness falls away, making room for my lighter substance, that divine energy to fill cavities that were previously filled with the heaviness of what I was scrutinizing and carrying around. 

If some of you are having an aha moment from reading this simple analogy with an overarching much bigger meaning, then know that I am smiling. 

Next time you're feeling heavy, think of your balloon. If you want to ascend, then lighten up man!

The Celestine Prophecy - A Fresh Look

I stumbled across the movie The Celestine Prophecy last night as I opened Prime on my laptop. It was hard to miss, actually, right in front of my nose on the Amazon banner. I rarely ignore those opportunities to listen to my intuition these days, so I watched it. It was a reminder to me of how far I have come in my search for answers on living a life in the state of Being Love, since I read this book in the 90's before an extended trip to Peru. At the end of the film, there was a concise summary of the initial 9 Insights, that I am sharing with you.

1. Synchronicity: We are discovering again that we live in a deeply mysterious world, full of sudden coincidences and synchronistic encounters that seem destined.
2. Spiritual Design: As more of us awaken to this mystery, we will create a completely new world view – redefining the universe as energetic and sacred.
3. Subtle Energy:  We will discover that everything around us, all matter, consists of and stems from a divine energy that we are beginning to see and understand.
4.  Competition for Energy: From this perspective, we can see that humans have always felt insecure and disconnected from the sacred source, and have tried to take energy by dominating each other. This struggle is responsible for all human conflict.
5. Spiritual Connection: The only solution is to cultivate a personal reconnection with the divine, a mystical transformation that fills us with unlimited energy and love, extends our perception of beauty, and lifts us into Higher-Self Awareness.
6.  Getting Clear: In this awareness, we release our own pattern of controlling, and discover a specific truth, a mission, we are here to share that helps evolve humanity toward this new level of reality.
7.  Follow your Intuition: In pursuit of this mission, we can discover an inner intuition that shows us where to go and what to do, and if we make only positive interpretations, brings a flow of coincidences that opens doors for our mission to unfold.
8.  Giving Energy Increases Our Synchronistic Experiences: When enough of us enter this evolutionary flow, always giving energy to the higher-self or everyone we meet, we will build a new culture where our bodies evolve to ever higher levels of energy and perception.
9. Conscious Evolution: In this way, we participate in the long journey of evolution from the Big Bang to life’s ultimate goal: to energize our bodies, generation by generation, until we walk into a heaven we can finally see.
There are actually 12 Insights over three books that James Redfield has published over the past 20 years. I enjoy his style of writing and feel that people are guided to this book as part of that divine energy that it references.

Control and Spirituality


A friend was disappointed and deeply hurt with the way someone close to them had behaved.

The advise that I shared with them was the following:


You cannot control the way that others behave. The only thing you have control over is your reaction and behavior, so getting upset over someone else's shortcomings does not serve you.

People come into your life for various reasons. Sometimes the dance lasts a few minutes, sometimes a lifetime.


I know that every experience is a gift and I'm always so grateful for the interaction, even when it initially appears as if the outcome is not what I wanted or expected. Once the experience is complete I know that one or both of us has learned and grown from it. And sometimes these experiences are just for us to learn more about our own triggers.

Rediscovering Simple Pleasures through Our Interactions with Children


For those who know me personally, I do not have children but am blessed with wonderful nieces and nephews that are decades apart. Hey it is the American family after all! 

No matter what you're doing in your life, where you've been, if you are up,  down or sideways,  how much money, power and prestige you have, all that goes out the window when playing a virtual game of eye-spy over the phone with a young person.  Especially when she is kicking your butt!


It's the young that remind us of what's important in life! And that's to find the fun and amazement in all our experiences. Think back to a time when you had no cares, no worries and  no responsibility. Growing up on the water, I think I was five years old when I remember my first time at the beach,  the feeling of the sand between my toes,  the smell of the ocean, the brisk temperature of the water as I tried to outrun the seagulls down the shore line. Everything seemed so amazing!

Now wouldn’t it be great if we could bottle some of that? Yeah I know, they called it dropping acid in the 60's, I think. But today, if we could just get more glimpses of that feeling, wow, how cool would that be? 
I am here to tell you that it can all be yours darling.  As we remember that we are beings filled with LOVE all of life can be that delicious!


It is that amazement that I feel every morning when I wake up in magical Sedona, with scenery dripping with beauty.  All right, I can be sappy, but, gee, what a glorious feeling it is to wake up blissful and in awe.  Give it a try! 
I have to tell you that it doesn’t suck!


Wishing you a day filled with Love,

How People Treat You

When I write about "Being Love" I talk about why so many feel the need to live in misery, wrapping themselves up in it like a tattered old blanket. They do this because they know nothing else and that misery is comfortable. They blame everyone for their own shortcomings, not realizing that the circumstances with which they find themselves are a product of their own lack of love.  Anger, rage and hatred are emotions that will only keep one from finding the love. Once you learn the difference you find the freedom from that misery and can take the next steps forward. 

This morning I was reminded of why we are on this Earth. It's to work with the love within, to let it grow, and let it blossom. We are all on a journey to find this love. It sometimes comes in old lessons revisited. When we change our reaction to that of love, we are showered with the most amazing life. 

Those of us, regardless of our circumstances, who has hurt us, lied to us or about us, taken us for granted or abused us, continue to forgive. It is the path to enlightenment.

So the next time someone comes toward you with hatred, anger and all that is not in the State of Being Love, remember this the only thing that you have control over is your reaction. Forgive them, have only compassion for them. For they are still living in the misery. 

Blessings and love,

The State of Being Love


It is a state of Being Love, that begins with "Self Love." It guides you through life when you realize that there are only 2 emotions, love and that which is not love, then you get it. 

I am often asked, 'What is the State of Being Love?'   


Once you know that you ARE Love, well, then every experience becomes love as you realize that it is just as easy to live life as the joyous song that it is.

It is that deliciousness that is unparalleled by anything else. It is that inner feeling of peace; the first breath of cold air in the morning that bathes your lungs in crispness as you watch the sunrise and that sigh as you see it set. Love is the euphoric feeling as the scrumptious fragrance of life infiltrates your nostrils. The world seems to bend to your hearts desires, where sadness is a faint memory.

Dating: Do not Hide the Real You


Today's topic is about being forthcoming when dating. Many an article I have written in past years has spoken about taking time between relationships, evaluating where you are, and working on yourself. You have all heard me say that 2 halves do not make a whole, but instead are 2 dysfunctional persons trying to complete themselves through another.

But what happens when you are whole, with the strength of a lion, and you happen to be female? Strong women do not need to be with someone, they choose to out of a desire to share incredible life moments. Like some of you strong women who have written to me, I have a past record of being pretty horrible at dating myself, intimidating some potential partners with what I've done.

Should a strong woman be forthcoming on all that they are, risking that most will run the other way?  If they hold back, they may get more dates, but at what compromise?

I recently had dinner with someone who in the middle of the conversation said, “With all that you have accomplished, why do you need someone?” My response was a little flippant as I nonchalantly flicked my hand up in the air, “For the sex, drugs and rock and roll, of course.”  He didn’t understand my quick wit, and asked what drugs I use. I rolled my eyes before putting my hand to my mouth, now having to explain the comment and that I was not a drug user, all the time thinking why did I say yes to this date.

I found myself in quiet contemplation this morning on this subject about being forthcoming.  The answer came in the lyrics of a song from Frozen called Let it Go

Don't let them in, don't let them see,
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know,
Well now they know Let it go, let it go,
Can't hold it back anymore.

You should never hide your true self from the world. 

In dating be yourself, embrace your uniqueness and strength. Potential partners who are intimidated by a strong woman are not the ones that would make for long lasting relationships filled with the substance and depth that your mind and spirit require.

Always Learning Growing and Breaking Through




The way I am guided is at times harsh with extreme opportunities for positive growth, at times prophetic with the right words that move me forward written on a chalk board when I am searching for answers and other times comical. It was a recent Saturday morning and I was to rise early and attend a half day Vipassana silent meditation. Alas, it was cancelled. I decided instead to spend that time in my place, sitting in my hanging chair in quiet meditation. As I sat comfortably legs folded, I found myself on the ground, as the bolt holding it somehow got unscrewed. Nothing was hurt, not even my pride, as I meekly laughed out loud trying not to add to the loud noise that had already roused neighbors at dawn on a well-deserved day off from the hustle and bustle after a long work week.

I looked up to the ceiling professing, “Yeah that was subtle." Was I talking to anyone but myself? Who knows, but I sat on the couch knowing that there was apparently something else that I was supposed to be doing today. This is not the first time that I needed to be hit over the head to move forward and most likely it would not be the last. But this morning, I was paying attention. How could I not, the soreness in my coccyx bone an immediate reminder of the message.  I would like to jump to the moral here before I share with you the wonderful experience I had. Be cognizant of the sighs that are helping you find your way forward. It is much easier to go with the flow that get thrown over to get your attention.

Now to the amazing event that I participated in. With now a new opportunity to literally get up and move forward, I perused the local events calendar. I spied a workshop that was using ART as a way to represent what they termed, our “inner demons.” In practice they were talking about those fear based emotions that we all carry, like anger, anxiety, and feelings of worthlessness. In the words of facilitator Lauren Bohy, “Participants will identify their own unique family of inner demons and focus on one of them to develop into a small stuffed creature. The workshop will culminate in a conference where each participant will have the opportunity to present their inner demon and take questions from the demon and human audience. By giving character to something that feels overwhelming, the stuffed demons become a tool for self-reflection.”

I ended up spending a good part of the day with many incredible heart centered women from the Charlotte, NC area in an art studio where Lauren guided us through self-examination before beginning cloth and wire masterpieces adorned with accoutrements of lace, ribbon, sequins, and fuzzy dangly bits and bobs.

We displayed our inner demon creations one by one, these wonderful representations that held the false beliefs about ourselves that no longer served us. They spoke from a tiny podium telling the group about themselves and answering questions in this safe environment. I was touched by these women's honesty, openness and warm nature. 

There were some tears and some ah ah moments. It was a freeing experience for me, as I shared my demons, my imperfections,  masks and the emotional baggage that I still carry, even as I help others move forward from theirs. No one condemned me, laughed or gave me other than a compassionate look as I let down my ego and showed them who I really am. 

And who am I?

It was their empathy that allowed me to admit that at times I hide my own feelings of inadequacy. I relish the fears I professed that morning as they that release me from that prison of secrecy, the door now ajar. 

It is truly a never ending journey to peace and unconditional love.  I am not perfect, far from it. I am grateful for having more pleasant moments than unpleasant ones these days, but it was time that I embraced my imperfections as human.

I am thankful to the group and amazing gals I was fortunate to meet as I continually look forward on my journey of self-discovery.

Is Social Media a Platform for Negativity?


 With coffee in hand, I took my laptop out to the zen garden and opened up Facebook to do some administration on my public page.

Today, I happen to peruse a few posts as I took my first sip of that morning brew when I came across one that had a very strong religious slant. The text reads like this:

"I want to say something about the spirituality debate. You don't believe in God? Fine. Why is it so important for many of you to mock those of us that do? If we're wrong, what have we lost when we die? Nothing! How does our believing in Jesus bring you any harm? You think it makes me stupid? Gullible? Fine. How does that affect you? If you're wrong, your consequence is far worse. I would rather live my life believing in God and serving Him, and find out I was right, than not believe in Him, and find out I was wrong. Then it's too late. I believe in Jesus Christ. He said deny me in front of your friends & I will deny you in front of my Father. I am not ashamed- God is Good!!! I am blessed."

Personally, I have no judgment of the origin of where guidance comes as I love and respect people who have strong religious beliefs, for I know that there are many paths to the same destination toward enlightenment. As a spiritualist, I'm not particular to one religion myself, although I speak about Jesus as a great teacher, along with the Buddha.. I  walk along side many past masters on the path to enlightenment.  It allows me to live a blissful life. As I looked upon the above post, the first thing that came to me was the condemnation the person who posted it must have experienced for them to share such a strong message. Does it make you less spiritual to believe in Jesus as a loving being, a brother and teacher of path to enlightenment? No. Should you condemn others for their beliefs? No.  What do I believe? That anyone who tells you that it's there way or the highway, is where the trouble begins. 

I find it disheartening that people feel the need to use social media as a platform to blast others for their beliefs, their politics, their sexual orientation, and anything else that is less than positive. I make it a point to skip over any that perpetuate negativity.

Would I have written this post? No. Those who use social media for debate in such a manner are not vibrating the State of Being Love. Next time someone condemns your path, your looks, your views or your choices, well just ignore them. Don't allow others to incite a negative reaction in you, but take the higher road and savor the wonderful experiences life is offering you.

Sending you love,

Tantric Sacred Sex


I was speaking to someone today briefly about my version of that sacred union that I have been practicing for years. It's been some time since I explained this concept to anyone, and it was not the right moment to get into detail today. I know I touch on some of these concepts in my spiritual novel, but thought perhaps it was time to share a little of what I know with all of you.

In this world, when you find a partner whose energy is vibrating at a similar level to your own and is open to the possibilities beyond the 2-by-2 illusion most people dwell, this practice can be a pathway, a life changing experience that can lead to Shaktipat and Kundalini openings.

For me this practice is a union between 2 partners that connect to experience a living expression of the divine in each other.

It’s a union that's nurtured through the ritual, creating that sacred space, first grounding yourself, opening your crown chakra, before slowly sharing sensual pleasures. It involves breathing and sound, light touch and eye contact as you allow your partner to see into you. It is this “in to me see” or intimacy that builds as you explore each other in zones of the body other than male or female genitalia.

It's a full body connection, sitting naked facing each other, intertwined, where the tips of your fingers touch and you feel the energy you’re now sharing, all your cells electrified. Moving hands palm-to-palm, lips so very close, yet not touching, eyes locked onto one another’s and breathing synchronized.

Then the kissing begins, eyes still open in a relaxed gaze, exploring lips together, then separately, then tasting the sides of the mouth. And the tongue, that glorious tool of pleasure, the tip so sensitive to touch, playing and tantalizing, twirling slowly, teasing.

Then your partner lifts you onto them, the full union of bodies now complete in euphoric harmonyentwined in each other’s life essence on the physical plane, where you cannot tell where one ends and the other begins.

It's then that transcendence begins,  the melding of minds where communication needs no words;  the joining of consciousness’ into a state where you travel together in discovery of the answers to the questions of the Universe.

The goal is relishing the union for as long as possible.
Wishing you a delicious day,

Why am I Not Happy?


I had it all, the nice house, handsome hubby, successful corporate career, friends, vacations, expensive cars and frequent vacations.  And yet, I was restless, unfulfilled, knowing something was missing. This kept me up at night. Was I being selfish wanting more out of life when so many who did not have it as good as I? Why was I feeling this way?

I discovered that my story was not unique as I molded my life in the cookie cutter shape of what I was taught was the perfect equation for happiness. 

When I did, I came to the realization that I was not living the life I wanted, albeit the fact that from the outside, what people saw when they looked at my life, I seemed to have it all.

What I forgot was to ask myself the question, what would make me happy?

And it was not a new car, a promotion or more success that was going to bring me to the happy place I wanted to be.

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

If you are shaking your head yes, then know that there is nothing wrong with you.

Today, I am filled with joy and elation as I create the life that I desire.

Some may call me a round peg in the square hole, but I proudly wear that as a badge of honor, because I no longer look to others to validate me, I am self-validating, as I acknowledge my own worth. I may not be miss popular, but I do what I want, knowing exactly what it is that I want at any given moment. The opinions I form, well, they are all my own.  

I move away from situations and interactions that do not bring me joy and stretch myself in new directions, some out of my comfort zone. I do not allow others judgement of me to influence my decisions and am grateful each moment of the day.

For those who can relate to these words, perhaps it’s time to take a chance on a new direction, a new perception of you, your life and what excites you.

Sending you wishes of transformation,

Attracting Abundance by Understanding Enough and Releasing Lack



My dad had a couple of Porsche’s.   I loved those cars, and on occasion he would throw me the keys and say, keep it under 90 mph, kid.  What a rush I would get everytime I got behind the wheel. As a convertible baby, I was in love with the Porsche 911 convertible, looking at pictures saying, someday I will have this car.  

I made a killing in the Y2K technology frenzy, and walked into the dealership to test drive my dream car. It was an early edition 2000 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera Cabriolet, red with a black top and fins. The seat fit my ass like a glove. I took it for a spin, getting out of the car, the salesman still pale, white knuckled from our test drive.  

I never go to a dealer unless I know what I want and am ready to purchase.  I could buy that car cash but realized that I did not need it!  I said thank you and walked out.  For some reason, this was the day that I realized what enough was.  It was the day I left feelings of lack behind, knowing that I was seeking something more.

You see, buying something provides a high during the time we get it. It's a fix. What I figured out is that unless you’re already filled with the spiritual elixir that most of us seek, that feeling soon fades.  There are many terms for this elixir, that high, that joy that we experience. Perhaps it's that shot of dopamine that our brains give us as a reward. 

Knowing that it's not in something we buy helps us get to enough as we eliminate feelings of lack. That changes the pattern and opens us up to bigger things. When you learn to get that fix from within, and not from something external, you change your vibration, your frequency.

So here it is. The problem is that when you live in lack you attract lack.

Once you experience enough, lack fades from existence.

Today money and things do not hold the same value to me. They’re just avenues, an end to justify the means.  I have the knowledge that I am provided with what I need to do the things I want to do, when I want to do them. That is the mark of a true abundance as I am continually provided with a delicious life.

My message to you today is to always live as if whatever you have is enough, in excess of what you desire and need.  It is the first step in raising your vibration to an enriched existence and abundance. 

Wishing you a day filled with bliss,

Dream Big


I never know where the inspiration for my next article will come from. Sometimes it comes from an experience, other times from something I've seen or heard. Today's article is about dreaming big and it has nothing to do with me. Well, not exactly as I look to someone in my own family whom I admire.

I have several nieces and I have to tell you that they're all wonderful. My nephew is awesome as well. So today, I tip my hat to one of my nieces, who is an amazing woman. She has the strength of a lion. Actually I borrowed and personalized her cover photo 

She has not had an easy life, but when life has thrown her lemons, she has made the sweetest lemonade while continually maintaining her goodness. She is an loving mom, an accomplished student, striving for a degree in a field that will help others.  

She chose to dream big and strive for the brass ring, because she knows that dreams can come true if you believe. Here's to you today, teenie.  I love you!

Remember that you create you believe. You cannot achieve what you do not believe is possible. Let go off those lower vibrational beliefs that are keeping you from realizing your dreams.

Attracting Money and Prosperity - A Red Wallet Story

Red Wallet attracts money, attract abundance, leeza donatella, the state of being love, attracting abundance

I stumbled upon a video a couple of months ago about how using a red wallet attracts wealth and abundance. attracting money and prosperity.

When I mentioned the video to a friend, she sent me this photo of Mahalaxmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity depicted here pouring her golden coins into a red purse.


As my current wallet was literally falling apart at the seams, I decided it was time to seek out a new place for my cash and credit cards.  As I shopped, I was reminded of the video and decided that RED would be my color of choice.

So I bought a red wallet. 

It was late in the evening, so the transfer would have to wait until the morning. It was Sunday when I woke up, made my coffee and relaxed on the couch as I slowly moved things around, my old battered wallet serving me well over the past couple of years. 

I will admit to being a little anxious to see if anything would happen now that the transfer to the red wallet was now complete. 

Well something interesting started happening. 

That day I had a list of errands to run with a couple of returns. First I received a free $130 dollar pillow, then a cash refund for a hammock that was somehow not on the credit card receipt that the hammock stand I bought at the same time was on.  A couple of days later I won a $30 raffle at a business function, and again today, I received a refund check in the mail for $65 dollars more than I was told I would receive.

It seemed as if every time I turned around in these first 2 weekssince personally this red wallet as mine, something was being given to me.  


I wanted to share this story with you as well as profess my gratitude to the universe for all the goodness being bestowed upon me.
