Where There’s Smoke…
Where there’s smoke….
Not necessarily so. Last week, my family was awakened by a fire alarm around 2 am in the morning. We were staying on the 14th floor of a hotel in Clearwater Beach, Florida. When we opened our room door, the hallway was filled with smoke, along with the stairwells. People were panicking and rushing down the stairs. When one gentleman became upset and threatened to start pushing, my husband told him to calm down, there was no fire.
What? No fire? It turns out the smoke was from several fire extingisher’s that had been sprayed in an act of vandilism. It created enough chemical “smoke” to fill our hallway and 7 flights of the staircase. My husband had experienced this in the military and knew from the sulfer smell that the smoke didn’t come from a fire. The rest of us didn’t and we thought the danger was real.
What does this have to do with you? When you are focusing on manifesting something in your life, you might experience smoke. Smoke is just the appearance that things are going wrong. You desire to be debt free and end up with a large bill. You desire to be a professional actress and you don’t get the part. You might be tempted to think law of attraction doesn’t work for you. Don’t! It is working for you. This is just smoke. Keep moving forward towards your goal. As Lola Jones says don’t take score unless its in your favor.
Often, things might not look good, but you don’t see what’s happening in your vortex or the unseen. Don’t look for smoke. Instead, do what Jeannette Maw teaches and look for driftwood. Driftwood is the those little signs that you are getting closer to your desires. You might miss them if your not watching. For example, you want a new job and you get a job offer for a job, just not for a job you want or you get a small check in the mail when you are hoping to manifest more money. You can learn more about driftwood here.
Don’t let the smoke cloud you eyes. Look for driftwood instead. If you need help holding you vision, find a positive thought buddy or consider a coach. Crystal Nuding is a concousness coach who is great at soothing people and helping them hold their vision. Janette Dalgliesh is a Law of Attraction coach who provides sweet relief.
I’d love to hear about any smoke or driftwood, you have spotted or any comments. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of April. I’ll put everyone’s name in random.org and choose a winner to be announced here around May 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.
By the way, it might seem like a middle of the night hotel evacuation wouldn’t fit with my intentionto have a fabulous trip with my family, but if it hadn’t happened, I’d have missed:
Seeing my husband remain calm and soothe strangers
Seeing my son hugging and comforting his sister.
Feeling connected to my family as we stuck together though the craziness
Tasting the free breakfast the hotel comped us, along with 20% off of our room fees
Hearing my son’s glee at having survived another one of the “worldest deadliest emergencies.’ (We were trapped in an elevator on another beach vacation.)
Meeting some of our neighbors in the hotel and having nice conversations with them
Pretending to be Sweet Brown with my daughter and making up our own version of her famous Youttube video. Here it is you haven’t seen it.
Sweet Brown now has an agent, got a makeover and is going to be in some movies next year. I love it!
Yep, it was a great trip.
Love and Alchemy,
