This is how Just Jax, an already beloved tipping table, came into being. In case you don’t know a tipping table is used to connect with spirit, proving the continuity of life.
So, on Wednesday my friend and I are cruising to Orlando for an appointment. We talk about how we’re going to practice table tipping with an aluminum table the next day. We’re in downtown Orlando now, almost to our destination. The energy suddenly changed. ‘There’s our tipping table. It’s leaning on its side.’ My friend was excited. I laughed and said that we’d stop on the way back. About an hour later we’re at the place. Turns out it’s a uniform store. We walk in, say hello and head to the next room. My friend squeezed through the small space and handed me the table. I carried it by the base with my hand, walked into the front room and lifted it onto the countertop. ‘We’ll take this,’ I said. The two clerks looked at us like we were out of our minds and said the item wasn’t for sale. Still looking oddly at us, I said, ‘We’re mediums in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp and this is the perfect table for table tipping.’ Laughter echoed. They knew of the town. I put the table on floor to placed my fingertips on it and said, ‘I can feel the vibration.’ My friend joined me. Can you imagine? LOL
We left our phone numbers and hoped for a call. In the parking, after lunch, the phone rang. We could have the table for $50. The last four digits of the phone number were 0333 and all the numbers added up, a 33, and the day was a 33. Love it! We contemplated, mostly me. I had plans for the rest of the day. We were halfway there, so I relented. We went back to get it. This time I left a couple of business cards behind. We acted like a couple of high school kids who just got exactly what they wanted, giggling all the way to the car. On the way home, we came up with the name – Just Jax. The colors: purple and indigo. We’re so excited! That table found us, and it was tipped to the side when it was first seen.
The reason we needed a table is we plan on participating in Table Tipping, a fundraiser for the restoration of Colby Memorial Temple in the Spiritualist Camp. It’s 6-8 p.m. on Oct. 19 in the Andrew Jackson Davis Educational Building. $25.
We planned on tipping Friday, but realized we needed a new top. It was cracked and at first thought it would only be a repair. I was at the gym and wondering what my friend was doing. I knew something was up. On the way home, I called and found she was at Lowe’s, next to the gym, to get a new top. I agreed. She said she had been sitting in the aisle for a period of time to make the decision. I was already close to home, so I didn’t go back. She stopped by and showed it to me. There looked to be crack, but it was only the grain in the wood. Kind of similar to the original. It’s gonna be great. We’re hoping to practice on it early next week. Yes!
We manifested it. It took a couple of weeks, but it happened. I love that. We can all manifest what we want. Put it out to the universe and the universe will conspire to make it happen!
Blessings of peace and love!
