Try to live life in a way that your spirit attracts people who will support you when you need it- no questions asked. It’s truly a blessing.
Recently life’s circumstances caused me to have what can rightly be interpreted as “a very bad day.” (Yes even the cheerful can sometimes become overwhelmed by circumstances) I decided to approach the moment differently than I have at other times in the past. I went out onto Facebook and asked my friends to pray for me. NO details given; just asked them to send up a general prayer.
I was overwhelmed by the response that I received. Many friends checked in to say that it is “done.” There were no questions asked. No inquiring minds wanting to know. What I realized within a short period of time was that my friends were trying to return to me what I try to project out to others daily.
And that’s when it REALLY hit me. (Sometimes lessons are gentle and sometimes they hit you like a sledgehammer.) The spirit that you display and project is magnified in those around you. If you project a spirit of love then love surrounds you. If you project a spirit of negativity then negative spirits surround you. Now this, in and of itself, is not a new lesson. I have known it for a while. I think, for me, the shock was in seeing it manifest itself so quickly on a micro level. Sometimes we ask/ pray for a thing to happen and the universe takes a long time to respond. Sometimes, as happened with me, there is am immediate response to a request.
As I stated earlier this was a “very bad day” but I felt surrounded by such love and warmth in such a short amount of time that I had to take pause. It was almost as if I could feel these prayers working on my behalf. Since the negativity of the situation was nothing that I wanted to embrace and give further life to, I was deeply grateful. I realized that in my attempts to always spread love I am loved and I also realized that’s what friends are for.
So I publicly take a moment to thank my friends who stood with and/or prayed for me on that day. I don’t know that I deserve you, but I am certainly glad that my life is blessed by your presence.
