I think I've written an iteration of this blogpost a thousand times, but I have to write what's true for me and this week it's been all about how the universe knows what I need even before I do sometimes.
I posted this on facebook a few days ago so many of you have already read this, but when I was in Washington, D.C. a few months ago somebody gave me a magnet. My reaction was, "Great. Like I need any more stuff." However, I kept it because I couldn't bring myself to throw it away.
When I typed “being taken care of” into google images this is what I found. It was too quirky to pass up.
On Tuesday, I moved into my sublet in Berkeley. It's a really cute apartment, but the guy I'm renting from is very minimalistic. There's no cheese grater, cookie sheet, hell, he didn't even leave me any pens. As I unpacked, I came across my magnet and I stuck it up on the bare refrigerator. As soon as the magnet touched the surface a wave of feeling swept over me. I choked up because I realized the magnet was given to me months in advance for this very moment when I would need it. To know the universe loves and supports me, in ways I don't even fathom yet, really touched me. To see that I'm being taken care of in even such a small way turned on the water works.
I love this story because I can extrapolate this small event for the bigger stuff. As I said, I'm subletting, so that means I still have to find a permanent place to live. (And permanent in this case means at least a year.) I have some anxiety about it because what I want seems nigh impossible: affordable, spacious, and in a good location? Most people would say I'd be lucky to have two of those things. To see how the universe is taking care of me in a very real way gives me hope that my beautiful apartment will also manifest. And it gives me hope I'll be taken care of in ways I can't even predict yet.
I dream of a world where we know we're all taken care of. A world where we know all of our needs will always be met even if the setup has to happen in advance. A world where we rest easy, joyous and free because we know the universe will always provide for us if we ask.
Another world is not only possible, it's probable.
Rebekah thank you for sharing this. [and tagging me] It's also mind blowing when the universe does something as small as show you something on your facebook feed that one second you scroll through it as you wait for the light to change. I've actually thought a lot about your magnet story this week. New York hasn't been the easiet thing for me. My emoitions and anxiety and at times depression are at all time defcon 5 mode. BUT it's getting better. The weather is breaking up [though I type that as its gray and rainy outside] My point if I actually have one, is that you are so right. You said in both your posts that you were tempted to not post, but then were, but then didnt then did. I totally get that! Sometimes I feel my emoitional moment will seem silly on a social site where everyones really just trying to show off their new haircut. You publishing your personal moment with the universe allowed me to not feel so alone in my stuggles and also be more relaxed and aware of my surroundings. Since you've posted that I'm so much more aware of 'it' the 'bigger picture'. I'm unemployed at the time. In between freelance positions at MTV in production. So 6 weeks so mula. I've been really stressed about this. My boyfriend thankfully is able to float me but it's not with out loss of other things we typically do/need. Last night while talking with my boss he found a one week project for me working on something else-and then also told me he will be able to bring me back 2 weeks earlier than thought. So my then 6 weeks no work, in an instant, became 3 weeks. I felt taken care of. I love you and miss you and would love to chat more with you. Any time you are in New York lets get coffee or dinner or anything. Much love. and thank you for your light.
You are welcome darling. So glad to hear your six weeks of no pay is down to three! I always loving hearing from you and thank you so much. =) Much love to you and I hope I see/hear from you soon!
