days ago I wanted raw pumpkin seeds and went to a supermarket
which sells them, but they were all out. All this past
week I was in such pain that I was driven to go see
my chiropractor, hoping that a Body Talk Session would
somehow ease my agony. Yesterday I made an appointment
to see my chiropractor at 4:00 p.m. and left work at
3:50. I decided that, on my way, I would visit a certain
health food store, as I knew that the proprietor always
keeps raw pumpkin seeds in stock.
the road, I was wondering whether it was wise to go
to the store now as it was somewhat out of the way.
Taking the longer route to my appointment would make
me late. So I started to discuss my dilemma out loud
with my Guiding Light. I told it what I was doing. I
stated to my Light that, even if the health food store
happened to be out of pumpkin seeds, it knew that I
wanted some, and it would have time to help the store
owner restock his supply. I even challenged my Light,
saying that it could prove whether or not it was with
me, by what was about to happen at the store.
stopped at the store intending to get the seeds and
hurry off to my appointment. I told the store owner,
who I have known since childhood, that I wasn't feeling
well, that I had a splitting headache and was on my
way to see my chiropractor. He said, "See that gentleman
over there? He's a doctor. He's who you want to see."
I thought, Great! What a dilemma. Maybe I should speak
with him, but if I do I'll miss my appointment. Ten
minutes into my conversation with the doctor I called
and cancelled the appointment with the chiropractor.
doctor (of alternative medicine) spoke with me and told
me the things I needed to take to overcome my problems.
The herbs I bought will last me at least a month, and
they worked as he said they would.
most incredible of all, just prior to my arrival the
doctor had noticed that the shelf which normally held
pumpkin seeds was empty; they were completely sold out.
He asked the owner if there were any more available.
When he later listed the things I should purchase, he
turned to the store owner and said, "Imagine! Just a
little while ago there were no pumpkin seeds on the
shelf. They were all sold out and I turned to you and
mentioned it. And you replaced them!" I was dumbfounded.
I told him the story of my challenge to my Guiding Light,
and said that I believe that my Light is always with
me. He gently replied that we all have angels watching
over us, guiding us.
is so good. He always purposely places people in our
lives to help guide us along our uncertain paths. But
he can help us only if we pay attention and listen to
our Guiding Light.
