Everything is energy and all things that will come to pass do so in the spiritual realm before they manifest in the physical. So how do we know the spiritual inner work we are doing is in motion? How do we know if it’s working? ASK FOR A SIGN!
Whether it’s finding your space, creating something new or you simply have a question you want answered, before doing major healing work ask for a message to manifest in the physical.
My personal request usually goes something like “Dear Universe, Please give me a clear message that what I’m doing is working and please make it SO obvious I won’t miss it!” In this case, I asked and received more than I could have imagined!
Message Received on 37th Street!
I was recently extended an invitation to teach a meditation workshop to top-level executive business women in New York City as a part of an innovative business leadership initiative called Breaking Glass. (Remember the name because it directly relates to the “sign” I received.)
My offering for the Breaking Glass Series was Creative Solutions for Clearing Limits. I’d never been to New York so this was truly an exciting opportunity. A new business leadership workshop in the Big Apple! What more could I ask for?
Since the workshop was about clearing limits I definitely had to clear a few limits of my own to teach it. The business aspect alone was daunting. How do you bring meditation to already successful women business leaders? After my first “deer in the headlights, can I do this?” feeling, I grounded and set to work putting together a program.
As with all my energy work, prior to the event, I asked for a sign to show me that it not only was working for the attendees but for myself as well.
The Answer to “Was the Workshop Effective?”
The last night in New York the organizer of the event and I were on our way back to the hotel after dinner and instead of heading to the room we decided to go for a celebratory nightcap. We walked into the bar next to our hotel only to be told they just requested “last call” but the rooftop bar was open. Truth be told if we’d know there was a rooftop bar we would have gone there in the first place so up we went.
The bar had a very cool atrium type (glass) ceiling. Other than what was blocked by the ceiling support beams you could see the New York city skyline through the glass. As we were relaxing and celebrating the success of our combined and individual New York events over a glass of Prosecco the organizer, who also participated in the workshop, told me she had received a letter that day hiring her as an independent consultant to analyze and oversee a large upcoming conference. In many ways this was a dream come true for her. Her emotions ran free and tears started to flow as she (and I) embraced what happened within 24 hours of the workshop.
With tears of joy (for her) in my eyes, I looked up and saw they were opening the ceiling of the atrium to the night sky. THEY LITERALLY MOVED THE GLASS CEILING! Right in front of us was the lit up Empire State Building against a night sky filled with stars! It was one of the most breathtaking sites I’ve ever seen. The moment was more powerful than I could have imagined. There I was, in New York with the amazing woman who brought me there, celebrating clearing limits under a limitless night sky with the Empire State Building’s antennae spires pointing to the cosmos. I will also add, the picture I took doesn’t do it justice.
Coincidence? I don’t think so. Too many things had to happen to get us to that very place at that very moment. Every decision we made that night lead us to see what we needed to see to acknowledge our journey. It showed us there are no limits because we can simply clear them. Move them aside. Release them.
The message was loud and clear, acknowledged and received. Although the results of the workshop are still unfolding, the sign I asked for showed itself in grand fashion. I call this, for lack of a better word, a miracle but perhaps the miracle on 37th street was no miracle at all. Perhaps it was simply showing us there are no limits except for the ones we hold on to.
Keep doing the inner work you’re doing. Ask for a sign that it’s working even if the true results take time to manifest. Everything is energy. There are limitless possibilities and yes, there are signs that will show you in bright lights there are miracles yet to unfold.~Shine Your Light Debbie
