In the Flow with Healing Waters
And to Think this Happened at Aldi
Susan and I have held two I AM Empowerment one-day retreats.
Both retreats were magical, expansive, and filled with laughter and some tears. It was an intense bonding among people who had never met prior to that day. We opened to our I AMs and allowed that energy to flow freely.
Susan and I decided to hold the first retreat at the last minute, leaving 8 days to let it unfold and it felt very natural and organic. We knew exactly what the day would produce, we didn’t know who would be available to attend, however living in I AM you don’t need to control any of it. It happened exactly how it was to be. We also understand each event will be unique upon itself as each participant brings their interpretation of their I AM to create a masterpiece.
I have profound gratitude for all that graced us with their expression, and I AM wisdom.
This sets up what happened 41 hours later.
I stopped at Aldi’s to pick up a cake to celebrate Susan’s birthday before I went to work.
It was about 8:40 am. I picked out a cake and walked to the checkout. There was a gentleman checking out ahead of me. There was nobody in line behind me, he was purchasing two items, juice and something in a box. As I waited for him to check out, I was aware of his soft voice and gentle way and that he had an accent.
My eyes were drawn to his feet. I noticed that he was wearing sandals. (that might not sound like a big deal but the temperature outside was 15 degrees) Then I heard the cashier say to him, “You want me to do that for you?” And he said, “Yes, I do.”
I did not hear what he asked of her, but the gentleman waited for the cashier to ring up my items. After the cashier finished ringing up my items, she walked over to him. He handed her the thing he had just purchased in a box. As he handed it to her, he asked if she could remove it from the box and once it was warmed up place it back in the box. She acknowledged and took the item to a back room.
I made some assumptions at this point, I assumed he had no place to warm up his food he just purchased, and he needed help with that.
My I AM was speaking to me, saying he needs some assistance. I wondered does he need a ride someplace, do I give him money since he only purchased this one item and a drink and needed the cashier to warm it up for him?
While he waited for the cashier to warm his food, I continued to walk out to my vehicle. My I AM was getting louder and my heart was being asked to do something.
Not knowing what I would do, I paused in my vehicle. My mind was trying to think fast as I only have this moment to listen to my I AM and do something. I counted the cash in my wallet and waited for him to come outside. It seemed like forever and I started to pull away. Then he came out the door. He walked slowly and with a bit of a limp. I thought it must be difficult to walk in sandals through the icy parking lot. He walked to a car and I watched him in the rearview mirror. My mind kicked in. Should I keep driving or turn around?
I kept getting nudged, “give him some money.” I thought how much should I give him? I stopped my car, took out a $20 bill, and wondered what is this going to buy him. It didn’t matter, this seemed right. The thought crossed my mind if I kept this money what would I even buy with it and would it really mean anything?
I backed up and pulled in next to him, his car door was open, and it was as if he was just sitting there waiting for me.
I got out of my vehicle and said, “Excuse me,” as I walked toward him. I said, “I was told to give this to you today,” as I handed him the money.
He said, “Really? Thank you, ma’am,” in his accent. As I walked to my vehicle, he said, “God bless you.”
I got in my vehicle and looked over at him and he was smiling a beautiful big smile.
I realized I could not take the smile off my face. He waved a thank you and I motioned a kiss in his direction, not even thinking, it was as if there was no thought, only an action.
It was only when my brain kicked in did I think how weird this is that I am blowing a kiss to a complete stranger.
He smiled even more. Who knows what he was thinking!
I drove away, holding back tears as my heart continued to open. My I AM was really vibrating and I wondered if this will ever stop. I thought when living consciously in I AM, will I ever get numb to this sensation? I hope not!
This is what happens when I listen to my I AM, it expands and takes over my whole body, mind, and emotion. I believe it is what happens to each of us as we follow I AM and allow it to expand.
When we stop our brain from interfering and allow I AM to take over the mind, magic happens.
What I do know is I will continue to feel my I AM, listen and follow what I am led to do, because it feels so incredible. I share this with you to lead by example. If each of us takes time to cultivate and listen to I AM the world will be a different place. I know you too have stories of your I AM sturring within you. I encourage you to share what you are doing and how your I AM is showing up. Speak it out loud, share the changes that are happening in you. As you share it with others, they too will shift.
It starts with each of us individually. When I touch that one person, it changes them, then that vibration ripples into what they are doing and it continues on.
We are all doing this, it can happen from our ego minds of being right or our I AM of love. You get to choose.
Tell us how your I AM is nudging you, are you listening and taking action or are you sitting on the sidelines waiting for someone else to do the change? We want to know.
Living my truth, living in I AM, this is the world I want to live in, how about you?
I AM in the flow,
