“Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.” - Wayne Dyer
I am deeply inspired by all the miracles and magic that I witnessed in Maui. The first was landing in Maui on the one year anniversary of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s death. On the plane ride over I had written chapter 15 of my book, Came to Believe, which for me was going to be one of the hardest chapters to write. This chapter titled, “We Are Only As Sick As Our Secrets,” required a deep dive into my heart with vulnerability and total abandonment. While writing this chapter, I kept thinking about what Wayne Dyer said in the Hay House Writer’s Course about the willingness to ‘go there’ when writing, even if it scares the crap out of you. It was something along those lines. I had no clue about the anniversary until my plane landed in Maui and I checked Instagram and saw so many beautiful posts remembering and honoring him. I thought how funny I am landing here in Maui where he lived and wrote his books on the anniversary of him entering heaven. When I looked at my iPhone, it was 1:11 pm. I took it as a slap in the face from my angels that I was exactly where I needed to be at the perfect time. I think this is called divine timing. Wayne Dyer was holding my hand while writing this painful chapter encouraging me to speak my truth and to trust that I am protected. And the words and inspiration just flowed.
On the following day, I decided to walk along the shoreline to Kahului Beach. I came across some rough rocky area and felt a little scared that I would injure my feet further. I was the only one out there along with tons of crabs popping their heads out of the sand seeing who it was vibrating their dwellings. I closed my eyes and prayed for spirit and my angels to guide me to a magical spot. I stopped where some local fishermen were casting their rods, dropped my backpack and just stared into the ocean. The water was greenish blue; I had never seen anything like it. The sand sparkled. I sat down and pulled out my crystals and Doreen Virtue’s Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Cards, the perfect deck to bring with me to my first trip to Hawaii. I breathed deeply and thought of Wayne Dyer again. I must be honest; I am a bit of a Wayne Dyer newbie only discovering him just two years ago. I have read about five of his books and his messages and teachings resonate with me. I asked him, “I know you are with me, Wayne. I can feel you here so strongly. What do you want to tell me?” I shuffled my cards, and one card flew out with the wind as if whispering to me. I am getting chills writing about it. Alchemy was the card. This card validated to keep putting my energy and light into my dreams. Everything I have been manifesting since October 2015 will turn to gold. If you all knew what I have been doing to manifest my hopes, all the little things I do, you may think I am crazy! This card was perfection and a gift.
I also was able to connect with an old junior high friend. Back then we were not super close, but I always thought that she had great energy, kindness and an authenticity about her. Honestly, she was much more popular than me, so we didn't hang out in the same circle. I found her on Facebook probably four or five years ago and kept in contact. When I told her that I was coming to Maui about a year ago, there was no question that we wanted to meet up. Through connecting with her on social media, I realized this girl, and I had so much in common as far as our spirituality goes. No wonder I liked her in jr high school. She was into crystals and tarot cards and how amazing, a psychic, my kind of spiritual sister. Even though I didn't completely know her when we met in Maui, I felt an instant trusting friendship. We talked about everything! She asked, “want a tarot reading?” I was all in. We went into her room where she had tons of beautiful crystals. I felt at home. The reading gave me the same inspiration and hope that I felt for the last year, that it’s happening! All I needed to do was have confidence and not to wait, to start sharing my message of hope and healing now. Another validation from spirit. (If you are interested in a reading by her you can find her on Instagram @cheshires_herbals)
That night my friend took me to dinner at a pizza place in Paia. On the way out I saw two older women with their Doreen Virtue Angel Cards at the bar. I had to stop and talk with them. One had the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards and the other and the Archangel Oracle Cards. The smile on their faces and the glow around them made me warm up inside. “I love Doreen too!” I called out. They at first were startled that I stopped to talk to them. I get it; some people wouldn’t understand having a deck of angel cards just chilling at a bar in a restaurant on the table. Then I showed them my Angel Tarot tattoo as if that would make them think I was less of a weirdo approaching them. I told them about channeling in Wayne Dyer for guidance and pulling the Alchemy card on the beach earlier. I knew they would get it. I told them that his anniversary of his death was just the day before when I landed in Maui. One of the ladies said, “He lived here, that is so special.” What are the odds of this holy encounter? For me, pretty high!
The next day I packed in my backpack all the angel, oracle and tarot cards I had pre-pulled before coming to Maui to take pictures of in beautiful locations for my social media. I rented a car, and I was on the road to Hana. First stop, Paia. Cute little town with adorable shops and an amazing local health food store called Mana Foods. I didn’t stay long because I wanted to hit the road before getting stuck behind tourist traffic. My next stop was Black Sand Beach near Hana Beach. This little beach was incredible! The way the water blew up the top of the cliffs was mystifying in more ways than one. I thought I would take a closer look, and when I did, the ocean came flying up over the rocks on top of me in droplets drenching me. I laughed out loud as did the couple next to me. This couple that had just got married asked if I wanted my picture? I thought, well I look horrible with wet hair and clothes and smeared makeup. But, I said, “Sure!” He timed it perfectly with the water being cast above me. This beach was such a miracle. I couldn't stop smiling at how grateful I was to be there. I got a lot of amazing shots of my angel and oracle shots. Look out for them on social media! I drove all around the mountain on a one lane road most of the time witnessing some of the most spectacular waterfalls. I had to stop at each one to take a few deep breaths and some pictures. The total drive took about eight hours with all the stops at the waterfalls and different beaches. The whole time I had Jai Jagdeesh on shuffle with the windows down and the rain dropping on my skin. I felt alive and enlightened and had about 20 mosquito bites to remind me of my magical day.
I was sad to see my quick inspirational trip to the island of Maui end, but I am so excited to be home and get to work on all the things I was born to do. As Marianne Williamson would say, I am pregnant! I am pregnant with miracles, passion, light, and spirit. I am so ready to do this. It’s happening! Aloha!
