Messages & Miracles

On September 14, 2022, I was home alone, sitting on my friend’s couch in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, enjoying the view of the trees and pond behind her house, chatting with my coworker on Zoom. I’d been sitting like that for a little over four hours, with only a short restroom break at one point earlier.

Suddenly, my friend burst into the house screaming at me to “Get out of the house!” “The house is full of gas!” she yelled. “What are you talking about?” I asked, as she went running to the stove to turn off a burner that must have been inadvertently bumped into at some point over four hours earlier, starting the gas leak.

I grabbed my computer and slowly went out the back patio door with her as she flew around the house opening up windows. I didn’t smell anything at all until we were about 10 yards away from the house and I turned back and was met with a wall of fumes that immediately burned my nose, throat, and eyes. What the heck?

How had I sat in a house filled with natural gas for over four hours and not even noticed? I’m super sensitive to chemicals and smells. Air freshener can take me out. I would cringe at the smell every time I lit the stove, that two seconds of escaped gas repulsive to me. How on earth could I have breathed that for over four hours without irritation or harm? How did I not slip into a coma? How did the house not blow up?

There is no answer other than a miracle. Well, a miracle brought to me by the Angels, Guides, and Beings of Light that surround me. I feel certain that my ancestors joined as well in the field of protection that was clearly placed around me. Thanks Mom and Dad!

If I didn’t have two other witnesses to this miracle, I would wonder if I’d imagined it, made it up. I didn’t. It happened. But why? What was this meant to show me? Why put me in such danger to prove a point? What point, anyway? In the months that have passed since, I have mulled this over.

For one thing, it has deepened my faith and made me less afraid. I can look to that moment as a touchstone to remind myself that I truly am always guided and protected. Those aren’t just words I say to soothe myself when I’m afraid or stressed out, but rather now a promise that has been demonstrated over and over again in big and small ways – and yes, now in miraculous ways far beyond human understanding or reason.

Another benefit is that, while I’ve always believed in the concept of miracles – and really, what isn’t miraculous in life? – having a miracle like this happen gives me a grounding in the possibility of anything is possible – the possibility of incredible miracles taking place in my life and in the world. The possibility of meeting my Soul Mate (which meeting I’m feeling and praying is imminent).

Finally, it gave me the message loud and clear that I am here for a reason – that there is a plan and purpose for my life. I’m not done yet. I may not always know where Life is leading me, but I do always know that I am being guided – and that I am surrounded and protected by powerful Angels and Guides and Beings of Light, both known and unknown in my awareness.

What an exciting adventure to connect more deeply with these loving Protectors and Guides of mine! I am writing this while sitting at my desk in our adorable little apartment that I am now blessed to live in, looking out the window at the beautiful old trees blowing in the wind, and contemplating what a miraculous life this is.

Look around for your miracles. They are surely everywhere you look. We all have a plan and purpose for our lives. Stay blessed!

I'm choosing as much as I can to be curious rather than afraid, to be open and willing to learn, to express myself as authentically and vulnerably as I can manage in any given moment, and to enjoy this journey of life.
