FROM THE ETHERS
I was lying in bed the other morning trying to decide if I should get up and workout. I’ve been walking the streets in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp since the end of March. Trust me, the hills are brutal. And so I pondered if I should get up or sleep in. The air conditioner in my bedroom was running and I wished it was off. It was a little chilly. I turn it on at night, so I cannot hear a thing but that. I snoozed for a few more minutes and when I awakened, the air conditioner was off. I wondered if I wished it off and it turned off. Crazy right? Not when you’re living in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp.
Backstory: I have had my office and resided here for nearly three years. Let me tell you stranger things have happened – I lost one shoe, which was last seen partly on the side of the bed and under the bed. It came back months later. The fire extinguisher, which is attached the wall in my kitchen, disappeared for two to three weeks and then reappeared. Just in case you think I’ve lost it – another person was witness to that. And then of course, there’s the many many times the crystals on top of my dresser have moved.
So, in twilight (sleep) I believed there was a possibility that my mind turned off the air conditioner. Why not? And then I thought Spirit could’ve easily done it. Why not? It could happen. I believe anything is possible.
I decided to walk. I flipped on the switch in the bathroom and lo and behold the light didn’t come on. I laughed and still do. LOL. I called to report the outage and found that around 1,600 others were without power and it was scheduled to come back on around 9:30 a.m.
On my walk, I met up with a couple of residents. I told them the story. The woman said, ‘Look at all that power you have. Your thoughts took out the neighborhood.’ I chuckled. She was serious. Still on my walk I met up with them again and she reminded me how powerful I am. Aren’t we all?
Think about this: How many times have you been in your vehicle and thought of a song you wanted to hear and then viola there it is? Happens to me a lot. I have to wonder if I manifested it or if it was already to be or better yet perhaps I saw the scene play out before it happened.
My little reporter self couldn’t wait to look up how much of our brain we really use. Come to find out these days some people “in the know” think we use nearly 100 percent of our brain always. Hmm. I remember hearing something about 10 percent of the brain. It’s a myth, they say. Maybe, maybe not. I’d really like to know what those people “in the know” would think about my experiences here. My guess is they couldn’t grasp it. The again, one never knows until it happens.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
