HAPPY MOON DAY TO ALL!
Our Moon is new today. Have you set your intention (goal) so it can grow during the Moon’s waxing?
What? You don’t believe in that? Don’t think that stuff is real? Don’t believe it really works?
If the Moon phases are good enough for the farmers to plant by (See the Farmer’s Almanac) it only makes sense that this would work in other aspects of our lives.
Because one may begin their new moon manifestation focus three-days before the Moon is new, I began mine on the first, and wouldn’t you know? I saw the fruits of that within twenty-four-hours.
Don’t believe me? Well, here’s the story.
As those who follow me regularly know a week or so back, I found that money and food had gone missing in my house due to a family member’s dishonesty. You also may remember that my power bill was quite high, my Food Stamps had been suspended due to a glitch in the paper work, and that I was feeling rather insecure financially.
What you don’t know is that yesterday that all changed. How did it happen? How does that relate to the new Moon and my manifestation focus?
LOA (Law of Attraction)
Yes, it’s that easy. On Saturday night I decided it was time for some serious focus work. I’d scrubbed my bathroom earlier in the day in preparation for this work, and so about 8:30 I ran a wonderfully steaming bath and settling myself in cast my circle.
I always cast a circle around myself to block out any unwanted energy. Casting a circle is nothing more than imagining that you’re surrounded by white light which is there to set a boundary for your mind. Some, like me, call upon their higher power at that point to give them extra help.
Once that was done, I lay back into the water, took a few cleansing breaths to calm myself and relax both my body and mind, and then I began to think about what I Needed and Wanted for my life.
I knew I needed financial help, but I didn’t want to have to take help from someone yet again. I’ve worked hard to come past needing so much extra help and not wanting this to change I was looking for ways that I could make a bit of extra cash.
Having sold most of my valuable possessions that I didn’t need last year I knew that wasn’t an option, so I had to find another way.
Flipping through the file folder of clients I kept stored in my mind I soon found there was only one client that was just about ready to renew, but even his contract wasn’t up until March, and even if he paid early it wouldn’t be more than $80. Continuing to think, I thought of the one client I have who pays me monthly, but that was no good because his payment wasn’t due again until the middle of the month.
“What to do?” I asked myself as I began my grooming session of washing hair, clipping toenails, and shaving legs. “How can I make this situation work out for myself?”
I decided there was only one thing to do and that was to simply pray and believe that I would find a way. Envisioning my Paypal account reading the amount I’d need I began…
Thank you for the sun.
Thank you now day is done, all my needs, wants, desires, they’re met.
Thank you for what I have and have not yet.
Thank you when the day is new, we will still be we and you will still be you.
Light our path and guide our way.
Give to us what to do and say.
So mote it be, blessid be.
Finishing with my bath I gave special thanks for the water with which I’d cleaned myself, and opened my circle, releasing the white light. I felt refreshed both spiritually and physically and I knew everything would be fine.
Later after drying, dressing and checking on Campbell Dog who had fallen asleep on the loveseat waiting for Mommy to get through and put him to bed with Squeaky Duck, Kong Monster A.K.A Mr. Knots Not feeling sleepy yet, I sat down to check my email.
To my huge surprise there was an email from the client who pays me quarterly. When I opened it and read what he’d written my mouth dropped open so that I had to feel round on the floor for my jaw.
He’d written to ask if the amount he’d figured for the cost of paying me from the beginning of the new quarter through the end of 2019 was correct and if he could go ahead and pay me now, so he’d have it out of the way before he and his wife went on vacation.
You could’ve knocked me out of my chair with a small puff of air. Being faithful, I knew my prayers and manifestation focus work would make what I needed come to be, but I’d certainly not expected it to be so quick. He and I had not even touched on the possibility of his paying me for the remainder of 2019. I simply found myself in a total state of shock.
After giving thanks I dashed off a reply telling him that yes, the amount was correct, and asking him if he were certain he wanted to pay me for the entire year. The work I do for him ebbs and flows at somewhat of an irregular pace and though I was finding more and more ways to assist him in his business promotion and outreach work all the time the amount was such that I wanted to make very sure he was ready to commit that much money.
I went to bed with a joyful heart. I felt I could do enough work for him to make it worth his commitment to me for the remainder of the year, and that along with the fact that he had reached out to me with this idea and that I’d not suggested it to him in any way gave me the assurance that yes, this would go through and that I would be able to take care of the majority of my needs. I might even get a ‘want’ or two.
The next morning dawned crisp and clear, Campbell slept until 7 and I having woken a couple hours earlier was able to do some major catch up on the reading of blog posts and saved mail.
All that day as I was going through my Sunday routine of reading, and cleaning up the house, I kept giving thanks for the financial relief I knew was coming. I checked my email from time to time and knowing it was Sunday a non-work-day for many gave no thought or worry that I’d not yet heard back from my client.
Late in the afternoon, after a long day of doing housework I plopped into my chair with an exhausted sigh and opened my in box and there it was, top of the list of incoming mail my client’s reply.
Holding my breath in anticipation I opened it and read.
Yes, he was sure, and furthermore, the payment had been made. I leapt for joy! Tossing my computer aside I got up and began doing a happy dance round the room clapping my hands and singing, “Thank you Mother Father God! Thank You! Thank You! Blessid Be!”
Campbell not needing to know what had his mother up and dancing around joined in running around in circles barking and wagging his tail with his own happy wagging glee.
When I finally managed to calm us down, I settled back into my chair, retrieved my haphazardly tossed aside Laptop and wrote back with my thanks, sent him a copy of the payment receipt, and assured him I’d have his contract to him by opening of business on Monday.
After taking some time to figure what my priorities were, I made an Instacart order for groceries, and even included a box of treats for Campbell. Then I made a payment on one of the bills needing my attention, and then made a list of things that couldn’t be gotten via Instacart that Campbell and I would need to pick up on our outing the next day.
Later as I put away my groceries filling a sense of peace, I’d not had for nearly two-weeks I gave thanks yet again.
Now, here we are on Monday morning, I’ve got fresh hot coffee in the pot and am grateful. I’d run out on Sunday morning and the monthly shipment of coffee I get from Amazon is not due to arrive until Tuesday, but thanks to manifestation focus and answered prayer I was able to afford a small pack of coffee to fill in the gap. I’ve got food for another week or so and for this moment in time all is right with my world. The words Happy, Joyful and Grateful, do not quite describe how I feel on this early Moon Day morning, but they will have to suffice, for I’m secure in the knowledge that no matter the evil that befalls me Mother Father God are there with me every step of the way. No, I don’t yet have all my bills caught up and taken care of for the month. There are a couple which are still pending, but I know they will be made right in some way soon.
Well, friends, that’s the end of my tale. I hope it has shown you in some way just what the power of intent, manifestation focus, and faith can do.
Until next time this is Patty who is filled with peace and going for another cup of coffee, and King Campbell A.K.A Bubba who has just bumbled sleepily into the Livingroom, crawled up onto the loveseat and made himself a snoozing nest to wait for breakfast and his first walk saying…
Believe and it shall be so. May harmony find you, and blessid be.
