The Universe is protecting me again.

If you don’t remember my birthday gift from last year, you can read up here. My birthday is next week and I got another  present from the universe again today.

A few weeks ago, I texted my brother-in-law about potentially surprising my sister in New York. Me and my sister were born two days apart. Celebrating together was something that we’d come to love doing, but hadn’t been able to do in a while.

He never responded to my text.

I was confused at first. I  just sat on it, thinking he may have been scheming a way to bring up birthday plans with my sister without blowing my cover. While I was waiting, I saw an opportunity to attend a retreat with a woman that I’ve been following for a bit. I’d always wanted to work with her one-on-one but the investment was just too much for me right now. The retreat she was having was the same time as my potential New York trip and was a more reasonable money option. Since I hadn’t heard back from my big bro-in-law, I emailed her about attending. We spoke a few days later and she invited me to the retreat. I said yes and paid a deposit for something I still couldn’t really afford.

A few days later, I realized that my phone hadn’t sent or received any text messages from that day I texted big bro. Whoops.

Fast forward to this morning when I got a text letting me know there was some updates about my retreat weekend. I was curious. Was it cancelled? Moved? Free? (haha!)

The retreat host and me hopped on the phone an hour after the text. I was informed that I would be the only attendee.

Hi, Universe. Nice to see you again.

I would be receiving exactly what I wanted, without having to do anything. I would even pay less money than I had originally offered.

Do you ever think, “This is not my life?”

This is NOT my life. How did I get here? I am not here. This HAS to be somebody else’s life.

It’s as if every moment you live turns into something that you worked your entire life to create. You feel so worthy and deserving but so unready at the same time. You aren’t even sure how to receive it all yet but you do everything you can to open up and let it in as much as possible because you don’t want to lose the moment, the feeling, the momentum. Everything that doesn’t happen, is making space for something else that you absolutely need.

You’ve been waiting your whole entire life for it and there is no fucking way you’re going to lose it.

I was at the farmer’s market earlier watching people dance to the amazing one-man-band playing there. I couldn’t help but tear up. There is just something about my life lately that legitimately takes my breath away. Everything about the world was so perfect in that moment. I was so in that moment.

What is that?

“Being in gratitude for the not-yet manifested informs The Universe that you know that what you desire already exists and puts you at the right frequency to receive it.”

There it is. It already exists.

If you don’t have what you want yet, don’t give up. Don’t forget about it. If you really want it, it will come, and it will come in ways that you never thought or expected. You can’t plan it. You can’t decide how or when it will come. You can only decide that it will come. And the universe will deliver to you.

Every single time.
