Several years ago, I was visiting a friend in her home and I noticed some pennies on the floor, in different locations. She saw that I noticed this and said, “When I drop a penny, I leave it there. Pennies remind me that I am always surrounded by angels.” After that, I started leaving pennies on the floor also. I opened a card the other day and a bunch of tiny gold angel figures flew out all over the place. I decided to leave them too.
So when I sweep, I pick them out of the pile and put them back on the clean floor. Because they don’t really “belong” on the floor, they always catch my eye …they remind me that this life really is a miracle and it is up to me, to see it through fresh eyes.
“You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.” Paulo Coelho
P.S….The Big Dream “Project”!
On August 6th, I invited everyone/anyone who liked the idea, to send in their big dreams and I would collect these and have a blessing and releasing ceremony later (I did not specify a date). Well, the little bird container was way too small to hold all of your dreams and the wonderful pile is now building under my large Buddha statue. They are such a pleasure to receive (if you wanted me to read them, I did, if not, I am holding them all with the energy of love until the ceremony which will be on August 29th). So there is still time to send yours in if you would like to. My address is at the bottom of that day’s post called,
“I can see that! Dreaming Big”
