My Iphone battery began acting up just a couple of weeks before Christmas and so I didn’t pay much attention to it at first….as with all my life problems, big and small, I prayed, I meditated, I put a picture of my favorite Saint over it and “gave it away”…check, check, and check - in most cases, that’s all that is required of me to get over a life challenge….
And so you can only imagine my surprise and wonder when this particular problem didn’t go away! In fact, it worsened !!!
I couldn’t rely on my phone much anymore and it even died on me while I was shopping on Amazon for last minute gifts… the stress, the worry, the anxiety of missing out on important texts and phone calls…UGH! It was AWFUL. I wasn’t aware of the whole battery replacement thing that Apple was doing yet, and thought my phone is done! I figured I will have to deal with it sometime after Christmas and even thought of maybe treating myself to a new (non-Apple) phone for my birthday.
I was forced to put my phone away and learn to cope with extremely limited usage of it and only while connected to the charger cable plugged into the wall (which by the way is way too short to be able to use comfortably when trying to make a phone call). I began relying less and less on my phone, checking it less and less, I unplugged from all social media, stopped checking my email…sometimes I would leave it unplugged somewhere in the house only to find it dead hours later…I almost threw it in the wash along with all the baby laundry one day!
Christmas came and went, all mostly without my phone, and although I don’t have any pictures to prove it – this was my best Christmas yet! Without my phone to keep me occupied and distracted, I had more time to enjoy real face to face conversations with my family, I enjoyed not feeling pulled towards checking my Facebook or email, not feeling the urge to take pictures of everything … a new level of freedom - all while having the perfect excuse that everyone understood: “sorry my phone is dead, It just won’t charge…” is all it took to gain empathy and understanding from the world!
I even had to get dressed in a blizzard one day and walk over to my sister’s cottage down the road to bring her a very important message regarding dinner plans… what would’ve been taken care of by a quick text in the past resulted in her and I sharing a wonderful impromptu meditation session by the fireplace.
January 2 I called AppleCare and the kind loving soul that was helping me -I regret not catching his name – “remotely” diagnosed it to be in fact a battery issue that Apple will be able to help me with at a cost of $35 Canadian…(made me wonder what else he could “remotely diagnose” for me? ) He also booked me an appointment in the nearest city which is about an hour away, to have my new battery installed the next day. I woke up that morning with a feeling in my gut to call the place up and confirm my appointment, and by following my Divine Guidance I found out that they’ve run out of batteries and it will take a couple of weeks for the new shipment to arrive. What would’ve sounded like a death sentence back in the day, has actually turned into me having MORE of a LIFE (and having the time to write this post). My writing was just interrupted a few minutes ago by a phone call that I didn’t need to take, but not to worry as my battery died seconds into it and I was able to get back to my story (and make organic sweet potato and carrot puree for my baby).
I really look forward to more insight and lessons from the Universe in the next two weeks as I await my replacement battery to arrive. It’s been very enlightening so far!
So are you curious to find out how we got started with the Wish Blocks?
Once upon a time, in a land far away (Northern Ontario, Canada), the desire came to us to find ways to express our deepest wishes in such a way, that would speed up their manifestation process. We have been eager students of the laws of the universe and one of the most important concepts we have learned is that everything begins with THOUGHT:
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought” – Buddha
So we wanted to create a means to amplify our thoughts and bring more good things into our experience. The idea on how to achieve just that came to us very soon, when one day Thomas emerged from our woodshop with a beautiful wooden block in his hands. He was inspired to express a wish by writing it on this block with a permanent marker and by displaying it in our house. This very first wish block said the following:
“We receive large cheques from new and unexpected sources”
We placed it in our bathroom visible to all. Within two weeks, we received a cheque for a thousand dollars from a class action lawsuit settlement we had absolutely no idea we were a part of (note to readers: open up your junk mail). Although we were both dumbfounded and extremely shocked, we quickly realized that we did in fact express the intention of receiving this “unexpected cheque”, and all that happened was a direct answer to our request from the universe. The unexpected cheques kept coming after that as well….from least expected sources, big and small. We won a gift card from the Heart & Stroke lottery (which has never happened before despite our loyal support of the charity for many years), stock shareholder cheques from investments that had been idle for as long as we could remember starter pouring in, commission cheques arrived with sums much larger than expected, and so on…needless to say, we were well taken care of by the universe, and all our needs were abundantly provided for allowing time and resources for more travel including a wonderful opportunity for taking part in a mission trip abroad.
If this was possible, we thought, let’s express other wishes and desires on these “wish blocks” and so we did, with GREAT success. And come Christmas time we shared The Wish Blocks with our closest friends and family. Most of them embraced the idea and developed amazing Wish Block affirmations of their own. For example, my mother, who had been struggling with health issues, wrote down “I feel good” on her Wish Block (translated from Polish: Czuje sie Dobrze). She is now convinced that the Wish Block has really helped her feel better just by focusing on and thinking about feeling better. Now every time I call her and ask how she’s feeling, she answers: “I’m feeling good” as opposed to, back in the day, she would list each and every ache and pain in her entire body in alphabetical order.
My good friend Anne, had been wondering how will she ever be able to afford the house of her dreams, given her current situation, she just saw no hope…her and her husband created a very powerful intention together, and next time I spoke to her she was thanking me and expressing great joy, she was explaining to me all the new “miraculous” developments that had taken place since they started affirming hope, joy and a positive future together.
The examples go on and on, our inbox is constantly flooded with testimonials and positive results from people we know, and strangers alike.
There is probably no other subject as important to your Well Being than the “calling of things that are not”, it is a spiritual principle and those who know about it enjoy great success in aligning their life experiences with everything that is good.
SO…Are you ready to get started on Your Wish Block success journey?
