Praise the lord! A nice warm place to sleep
On one of my sister and I Diannes road trips, I can recall
lots of little medicals that taught me at a young age about
the power of manifestation. We had driven a "drive-a-way-car"
from Detroit to Oregon and after dropping the car off to its
owners and we were paid for delivering it we backpacked on
to California. A couple of the simple things that happened
were my sister, Dianne, after I said I needed some shorts
and a cool top for the 110 degrees we were experiencing..told
me to just ask for it..and it would come. I wanted to believe
her, yet, felt kind of silly asking out loud. Those kinds
of things embarrass me or I feel shy about stating what I
need or feel I need. She said "just do it Nancy..it works..you
are close to spirit it will listen!" (it went something
So..I said it outloud..(I was, actually, very uncomfortable
dragging my heavy suitcase. Why didn't I use a backpack was
inexperience I guess ."spirit, please if you can..I could
use some shorts and a top and a backpack". About an hour
and a half passed and we were going to walk up a hill to find
a place to sleep at a campground when I saw a blue and white
striped something laying in the road. I stopped for a minute..I
said to my sister.."look..what is that?" She said
something jokingly (or maybe not) "I'll bet that's what
you asked spirit for". I kind of smiled and set my suitcase
down ( I was backpacking with a suitcase!) and walked over..It
was a backpack! I looked around and there was no one on this
road in front or behind us. I looked at Dianne and she just
looked at me like "well..open it"
It was a backpack with a pair of jean shorts and a AC DC
tee shirt..beautiful, new and clean that both fit! I found
a restroom and changed..stuffed what I could into it..and
left my suitcase and some other belongings for the next person
who might need or ask for them!
The one experience, though, that really made a huge impression
on me was the day before, when we still had not dropped off
the car yet to its owners. It was a litte 280zx.. Ok so we
were driving and it was about midnight and we were tired.
We had a few dollars we got from a sheriff who almost arrested
us the day before for trespassing on property that was said
to be haunted..but thats another story too. it's neat how
all these memories are flooding in..I wish my hands could
keep up with my thoughts. So Dianne is Driving and we were
whining about how tired we were and had no money for a motel..what
should we do? Dianne suggested something like this "
Ok Nancy..I know..how about you tell me where to drive..use
your abilities..follow your feelings..I totally trust you!"
I shyly and insecurely said something like " Nooo..thats
silly..I can't do that..I don't want to waste the gas driving
all around." Dianne said something like "come on
Nancy! I'm tired..you know you can do it..just do it..tell
me where to drive!"
If it was not for Dianne I think I never would have learned
to trust my feelings like this..I just love her. So I said
"Ok..umm..go straight..keep going straight." So
I looked at the gas gauge and we had about 1/4 a tank. I
wanted to trust my feelings without letting worry get in the
way about the gas running out..soon we approached another
exit and something told me to "go there" so I said
it out loud "Go there"
So she went there. When we got to the top of the totally
dark pitch dark exit I said "turn left" I flicked
on this tiny light inside the car but I learned it made it
harder to see outside.
There was nothing visible there. I could see in her eyes
a kind of "are you sure?" But she trusted me so
she did it. I think we made one more right and we were on
this dark street about a block long..with dark store fronts..no
markings on most of the buildings..it was like..another ghost
There was one building when I squinted it looked as if paintings
were on the outside..it was colorful..it felt good so I said,
She said "THERE?"
I said "YES"
We kind of giggled, maybe from nervousness or being over
tired or just the fun of trying this out..we walked up and
we KNOCKED! WE knocked on a dark door on a dark street in
a town I don't remember..but she(Dianne) believed in me so
I believed in myself so we knocked. Suddenly the light came
on above the door..my heart pounded..this was crazy oh my
gosh! A lady peeked out the door..we said something like.."were
traveling and have no place to sleep and we felt spirit led
us here..so sorry..but..."
And she said "PRAISE THE LORD"
It was a Christian half way house or temp shelter for homeless!
There was no sign or indication of this on the building yet
we followed our hearts. We were welcomed in..she read things
from the bible. And we got to sleep in a bunkbed in a room
with a girl who was afraid of the dark so the lights were
left on all night..but it was a bed..and Jesus helped us and
it was warm and..it was a merical, I think. What about you?
