When I finished college a semester early at 21 years old, I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a career. I studied Communications with a minor in Public Relations but I wasn’t passionate about it. All I knew was I wanted to help people but I didn’t know how. I interviewed at PR firms and explored other industries and I eventually landed a job at an educational non-profit. I was excited to have a job offer and felt something special about this company! I justified that I was helping people every day by making my colleagues lives a little easier and helping the students the company served. However, it never filled the void of truly helping people in a sense that I was looking for.
I started writing when I was 12, in 1996. I wrote a fashion and beauty newsletter to other teen girls on AOL for 3 years. Writing about topics I loved was my passion. I eventually got busy with sports and high school and the newsletter went by the wayside.
Recently, I started kicking myself for not continuing the newsletter, the hobby I loved so much. But, in perfect divine timing, on February 1, 2017, I called Doreen Virtue’s Hay House radio show and received a reading from Doreen! She told me what I already knew deep down – that I needed to write and tell people about my experiences with God and the angels.
The first time I talked to Doreen was almost a year ago exactly, in February 2016. Not only did I get through recently, it was the second time I have spoken to her on her show. She has a very large following and it’s almost impossible to get through and put on hold, much less, actually have her pick you to talk to and it’s happened to me twice! It was divine timing. I have tried calling again since 2016 and I would be put on hold but not picked or most of the time I would receive a busy signal and not able to get through. Both times I got through and talked to Doreen, I held the intention all day long that I was talking to her later that day. I would thank God in advance for letting me talk to Doreen. I’d ask her angels to tell her to pick me. I would ask my angels to help me get through. Holding the intention, thanking God in advance and letting God and his angels intervene is what helped me that day (and countless other times too!) It’s a perfect example of the saying “Let Go and Let God.” He knows when it’s time to answer your prayers. You have to trust in Him and His timing. I know if I talked to Doreen a week, a month, two months earlier and I received the same reading, I would have said, “No way!” But that day, I said, “Yes!” My prayers have been heard and I am here to serve God and fulfill my purpose he put in me!
The funny thing is, this has all happened, 11 years after my graduation from college. If you are familiar with angel numbers, you know that number sequences are a way angels communicate with you. I have seen so many repetitive numbers for years, beginning with 1020 in high school, then moving to 1111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 777, 888, and 999. I have been trying to so hard to figure out what they were trying to tell me! So, it makes sense that I am starting this blogging journey 11 years after I graduated from college. I would have loved to start this journey earlier but God had a plan in place for us and I would have never experienced some of the stories I will share with you in the future.
After I spoke with Doreen, I started realizing how many times God and the angels have blessed my life with their guidance, help and healings. The past 11 years I have experienced highs and lows and my faith in God is what has brought me through. My faith and trust in God has continued to grow and I hope my stories can help you know that you are not alone, you do not have to go on this journey on Earth alone, God and the angels are right by your side patiently waiting for you to ask them to intervene and help you, just like they did for me on February 1, 2017 when I had the blessing of speaking to Doreen and learning my life purpose. They can only help if you give them permission.
We live this life in conjunction with God and He helps us along each step of the way. If I had started this blog 11 years ago, my journey would not have been the one destined for me to share with you today and going forward. At times I felt like giving up and continuing with my normal life: wake up, go to work, come home, and do it all over again the next day. But, I knew that God had something bigger for me, I just didn’t know what. Maybe it was the Taurus in me (we are determined and stubborn people!) or most likely, it was the combination of my determination and God’s will for me to keep pressing forward, keep praying, keep trusting in Him, looking for the bigger picture of how I can help this world.
God wouldn’t have put me through the trial and errors for no reason. Everything we go through, large or small, is a chance for a lesson, a teaching. God doesn’t put us through things without a reason. I knew one day however long it took, He would show me why I experienced the things I have and now know it’s to tell the world about his Good Will and his love for us.
If you stop and pause for a moment, you will see how God has worked in your life. He helped you avoid a car crash or healed a family member or friend. Or, perhaps it’s something smaller, He let you wake up today to a “normal” day. You felt healthy, your family is healthy, you have food to eat, a home, you got to work on time, you found a parking spot quickly (and close to the door!) you had no atypical crisis/emergencies to tend to…it was a “normal boring day.”
How has God helped you today or in the past?
