Last Sunday, Leonard Eaglecloud shared a story that works wonderfully with our Investigation of the 9 Insights we are doing this month. (from the book The Celestine Prophecy)

One fall, he and a young woman were sitting under a gorgeous maple tree, playing music, with hats in front of them to accept donations from passers by. They started talking and the young woman shared with him that she really needed $20, yet her hat was empty. Leonard asked her to know there were angels everywhere, and to believe she would have the help she needed.

They sat in silence for a moment, Leonard praying for her and the young woman breathing into believing. As they opened their eyes, a large beautifully coloured leaf floated down from the tree, landing right in her hat. A taxi stopped, a man jumped out, and with a thick accent, said he had to have that leaf! He was heading to the airport on his way home and wanted to share the colours of fall with his family. He reached in his wallet, took out his last Canadian twenty, exchanged it for the leaf, jumped back in the taxi and was gone!

Was that man an angel? Maybe. Was this a coincidence? Not!! An awesome Infinite Intelligence made that man in that taxi notice that particular leaf as it just to be falling right into her hat! He also happened to have one Canadian twenty left. All of it occurred to respond to her request for $20!! How delightful it is to watch the workings of the Universe!! And how amazing to know that the whole Power of the Universe is behind our every request!!

I believe these “coincidences” are happening to all of us all the time. They are like Love Notes from the Universe. Let’s open our eyes to see the possibilities around us, accepting our Love Notes with joy and gratitude!! Start noticing the coincidences in your life and you will see how wonderfully the Universe works for and through you!!

Joyful Blessings, Rev. Angelica


Today I recognize and acknowledge the awesome Power and Presence of the Universe in my life. I know It has always been here, is now, and always will be.

I now declare my eyes, heart and mind are open to see the Love Notes the Universe has for me. I am consciously aware of seeming coincidences, and recognize them as the workings of Infinite Intelligence in answer to my desires. I accept that there is so much more going on here than I could possibly ever imagine, and I am grateful to be able to recognize whatever part of It I can.

I know that as I open myself, I am opening to a greater experience of The Divine, not only for myself but for all. I celebrate my abilities and willingness to do this. I am grateful for my expanded awareness of Life. And so it is.
