My iPhone had been acting up the past couple of months. Barely holding a charge, or sometimes just going dead on me in the middle of phone conversations. Needless to say, I didn't feel safe knowing I might not have a phone when I needed one, especially because I am often out and about, and home, alone. However, I had been putting off getting it serviced because that's often what I do with errands or tasks I'm not excited about. I also thought I had purchased my phone last September which would mean it was out of warranty and I didn't really have the money for a repair right now.
However, this past weekend I finally decided to just make an appointment for service at the Apple store. The day of my appointment I was considering rescheduling because I didn't feel like driving all the way over there and I'd had a busy afternoon, but something told me I should keep the appointment.
After I checked in, one of the Apple guys came over and hooked my phone up to perform his diagnostics. He said my battery definitely needed to be replaced and told me the price for a new battery is $79. (Say what?!) He asked for my Apple account information and said he could check to see if I was still under warranty. I told him I was pretty sure it's been over a year since I had the phone. But then he looked up and said something along the lines of, 'I've never seen this before, but this is the LAST day of your warranty. You purchased the phone 1 year ago today. This is your lucky day. If I were you, I'd go buy a lottery ticket tonight.' HAHA Amazing! I just sat there stunned and THANKFUL. Timing from the heavens. I'm sure of it.
And the thing is, I've been having many more of these types of experiences this year. Things have been happening and coming together at just the right time. I've been fortunate to have even won some pretty wonderful things lately. Most recently, a one-month subscription to FlexJobs which I'm pretty excited about! And all of this has got me thinking about some things I've read in my Daily Love emails. (Seriously, if you have not signed up for their daily emails, I urge you to. They are always uplifting and thought provoking. I love starting my day with them.) Two of the tenets of Mastin Kipp's philosophy are that "The Universe will support you in manifesting your Purpose" and that "Things always work out for the best". I am starting to see both of these are very true this year.
As I move away from toxic situations, and circumstances that are not in my best interest or part of my Purpose, things start to fall into place. I've also started to pay more attention to my intuition, and actually listen to and heed the hints it gives me. For so long, I didn't let that voice be heard and instead focused on feedback I received from the outside world. Not good. Only you know what's best for you.
Another thing I've learned this year is that the Universe will repeat lessons until you have learned them. Believe me, there were times in my past where I knew what I was doing was definitely not in my best interest, and not representative of me or my values, spirit or Purpose, but I kept doing them anyway (ie. my previous career). Finally, the Universe said "Enough!". After losing my job in February, I have started down a path that is more aligned to my true self, and because of that, the Universe is providing for me in so many ways. I have lots more to share with you about future plans, but I wanted to relate the story from this weekend to illustrate how I am being cared for because I believe I am finally manifesting who I am. Detours are a part of life, that's for sure, and sometimes this loud crazy life drowns out the small voice inside you, that you should have been listening to all along. But once you do, I believe the Universe will rise up to meet you.
Kind of deep today. Please feel free to share any recent experiences you've had with luck, timing, intuition or divine intervention.
