Hi my lovely friends! Today I want to share with you something that happened to me last weekend that deepened my trust in the Universe. A little test, you could say, that I gave to my angels. I wanted to share this experience with you as an example that there is a greater power orchestrating everything that happens in our day to day lives.
After a long work week, I was ready to unwind by myself. I decided to go walk Pilot Butte and listen to a Gabrielle Bernstein podcast. I drove to the park at the base of the butte and locked my car. Because I didn't want to carry my full keychain and wallet, I took my car key off of the key chain and put it in my jacket pocket. I plugged my headphones into my phone and off I went.
It took me about twenty minutes to power walk myself up to the top of the butte. I found a nice, quiet spot to do a guided meditation. When I opened my eyes, I saw a group of people in native American wear setting up for some sort of dance ceremony. I watched them prepare for their ceremony and headed back down the butte. I checked my pocket for my car key and was surprised when I didn't feel it inside. "Uh oh" I thought to myself. I walked back to my meditation spot and looked around. No key.
This is when I knew I needed to call on my angels and trust in the Universe. I said the mantra "I will find my key" the whole way down the butte as I scanned the trail. I also asked Archangel Chamuel (the angel in charge of helping you find things) to help me find my key. However, I got down to the base of the trail without seeing my key. At that moment, my friend's mom text me inviting me to dinner. I text back explaining that I had lost my key and wouldn't be able to make it. She told me to stay put and would come pick me up. I called a locksmith and scheduled for him to come cut me a new key that evening.
As I waited for my friend's mom, I reminded myself to trust that everything happens for a reason and this was a lesson for me to learn. Never take your key off your key chain and put it in your pocket during a walk. I felt a slight panic about how much this lesson was going to cost me. But, I decided that this was a great time to practice staying calm and trusting in the Universe.
Once she got there we called AAA and I walked the trail a second time to try to find my key. No luck. The gentleman from AAA was able to unlock my car and I took my belongings out. We then had to decide if we would wait another hour or so for the locksmith or leave my car overnight and deal with it in the morning. By that time, I was tired and just wanted a drink. I listened to my inner guide that told me to leave my car in the parking lot, go relax that evening and take care of the key in the morning.
Ah, it was so good to catch up with my friend's mom and enjoy a fresh margarita at Balthazar's. She dropped me off and I fell to sleep instantly. The next morning I woke up refreshed and ready to take care of my car key situation. I called the locksmith (again) and agreed to meet him at my car in an hour. I did a quick meditation at home and then started walking to my friend's parents house to get a ride back to my car. I was almost to their house when I received a call from the locksmith. I assumed that it was a service call verifying my information.
What he had to say was not what I was expecting. He told me that he arrived at my car and when he went to start working on it, my car key was already in the door. Someone had found my key, inserted it into the keyhole and left it. On top of that, no one stole my car. I was stunned. The chances of someone finding my key somewhere on Pilot Butte, spending the time to return the key to my car and then no one taking the opportunity to drive off with it seemed very slim.
I thanked the locksmith and asked him how much I owed him. He said they usually charge for service calls, but this was my lucky day and he wasn't going to charge me. I started to cry and silently thanked the Universe and my angels for looking out for me.
When I got to my friend's parents house, I told her mom the story and she was just as shocked as I. We drove to my car and sure enough, the key was there and my car started with no problems. I was a lucky girl! I shared this story with my friends and family the rest of the weekend and everyone could not believe how fortunate I was.
The lesson that I am taking away from this experience is to trust that the Universe always has your back. I chose to believe that I would find my key. Even when I called the locksmith for help, I held the belief that I would still find my key. This experiment of asking the Universe for help and receiving what I asked for will stay with me forever. Please don't be afraid to ask for help and trust that everything happens exactly how it's supposed to.
