this girl

What, are you magic, Chloe?

Yes, Yes you are!

Someone around here has been dreaming big and aligning herself with making what she wants come true.

In the Spring, there were not enough funds to make her college choice happen.

A long and winding road has led us to be less prepared for this transition than I would have hoped,

but always, we are dealt the perfect hand!

We have done our best to start over – but at times – I admit – I

can allow the day to day to limit my awareness of all that is possible.

I sign into my computer with a password “allpossible” everyday at work to remind me –

but still, when the figures on paper don’t add up – I can forget.

Chloe believed it was possible, and she lined herself up with making it happen.

She also taught her mom a thing or two along the way.

This girl:

chloe sunny

liked to see me sweat;

she made the journey seem uphill,

but by plugging along, scrambling for every last cent,

she has made college a happening.

She has been awarded 7 small scholarships –

she asked family, faculty, foundations for help;  she wrote essays, filled out

mega paperwork, and now, it appears, she has danced herself into a freshman year.

I have learned in this process to TRUST.

None of this moved forward with my worry.

Nothing happened from my inability to see solutions.

The provisions were there all along, each step of the way;  she figured it out, and I am

overcome with joy, gratitude and amazement for the gifts that wait for us to open them.

Yay, Chloe, the College of Charleston, Honors College, Biology Major, can-do, trusting girl!  You teach me oodles, every day!

    Brilliant! A lovely reminder of the countless threads that weave up to the Wall of Impossibility, into which they seem to vanish. You have to actually pick up one of those threads and pull on it, following it step by step, to see the wall is a mirage and the thread leads right through it. Ahhh, that Card Dealer. Always stacking the deck… This reminder came in handy today. Please thank your daughter for her contribution to the great rewriting of the world.

      You made me think of this:

      Sometimes we have to see someone walking running through brick first to help us realize we can. Thank goodness we are not alone in this – such teachers and fellow travelers I’ve been granted! Thank you, Michael! m

      • Michael June 6, 2014 at 12:36 pm #

        Nice. I’m afraid tilting at brick walls may, in fact, still prove too much for my thinking mind some days. I may have to stumble into this, like so:

        So many ways to be/choose/fall into this…

        🙂

        Oh yes, this seems even more likely – this backing into worlds, living long moments and lives, and returning with no time lost; perhaps we even do this nightly, with the gentle falling off in sleep into realms of experience that gifts us with tidbits to bring back. You send me off into my day today with a nice, frozen snowball in my pocket on a summer day of possibilities! thank you!!

      the great rewriting of the world. there it is, marga. you must be magic, too!

      • marga t. June 6, 2014 at 8:55 pm #

        I really so feel such an intuitive consortium among us here – that our learning and sharing is adding to the whole, versus the small factor or one. One plus one here goes exponential fast – and pretty soon we are on mountaintops together, swirling into world we are creating together – I sound like a new agey hallmark card copywriter except for the actual altering of reality – magic without the tricks!

        of course! miracles are natural.

      Thank you, Debra. Such a time of learning (for me:) xo! marga

    Yay!!!

    • marga t. June 6, 2014 at 12:13 pm #

      Ha! The solution did not lie within me after all – how wonderful! Thanks for you supportive listening through the learning! xo! m

    amazing! ❤

    Woo hoo! I am so delighted to read this! Yes, this girl is amazing! Congratulations!!!

    • marga t. June 6, 2014 at 8:56 pm #

      Blink your eyes, and I will be reading of your transitions; cliche but true – it zips by! Thank you for sharing in some good growth with us! xo!!

    WTG Chloe! Yes she is magic, yes we are all magic. And like you Marga and Michael I also need to be reminded. The three videos helped me remember and I’m sitting at the table going yes! yes! yes! because I know the truth, have experienced the truth, but forget as I slide into the ‘real’ world that limits us in so many ways.
    I have restless leg syndrome and several years ago while Don and I were reading the Harry Potter series out loud to each other I became so steeped in the world of magic I began to believe in it. One night when my legs were particularly restless I suddenly had the thought to put a spell on them to keep them still. Worked like a charm! Literally, and immediately. My power of belief was that strong.
    The knowing that I can do this, that I can produce instant magic, didn’t stick though. I’m reading a book called ‘You are the placebo; making your mind matter’. It’s helping me a lot to drop into, and live from, even more, that place of knowing. And posts like this – exactly the message I needed to start my day.
    Thank you Marga, thank you Michael, thank you Chloe you little magician you!
    Alison ❤

      How very fitting and magical, Alison. I would like to read that book too! I imagine the art of original spell making is another of those forgotten human abilities – what a fun world to re-enter! “Legs be Still! If you Will! So I can sleep! and Enter Deep! 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your magic with me! xo! m

      • Alison and Don June 6, 2014 at 10:28 pm #

        I love your wording of the spell! I’m not sure I worded it that way, but it amounted to the same thing. I was not such a poet 🙂
        And in rereading my own comment I suddenly heard “Restless Leg Syndrome” in a whole new way. Not as a diagnosis but as a statement about myself. A revelation. LOL! It’s not about my legs it’s about my life! LOL LOL LOL LOL! I think I’ll stop doing that now. It’s time. Another thank you ❤

    oh yeah. i forgot why i came back after i read michael’s comment, but now i remember. i loved discovering abraham hicks. listened to the law of attraction after your segment… and today my wife resigned her position. i sit here, gazing at the maple tree and quilts airing on the clotheslines and feel like i fell off the disk… in a good way… i think.

    • marga t. June 6, 2014 at 9:02 pm #

      Oh too look out on trees and quilts in the fresh air – sounds heavenly. Blessings on your head and your wife’s head as well as you are on and off disks, walking away from worlds and into new ones ahead. Such a time of transition! xo! m

      • Michael June 6, 2014 at 10:44 pm #

        Just had to chime in and express my gratitude to the Consortium. I didn’t realize I was a sleeper agent in this world until I read that. The obvious is always surprising. These threads that are being woven… they have that gracious, magical feel… The SheepMan would be proud. I am by turns humbled, awed, supported, known, heard… as if there are invisible threads and these WP wayposts are but the tip of an iceberg. Much love to all of you.

    You and Chloe have gathered a joyful chorale rejoicing in the miracles of intention. Well done! And, thanks Marga, for giving us the opportunity to say “Woo Hoo!!!”

    • marga t. June 7, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

      Your sharing in the celebration with us here adds so much to my joy! Woo Hoo! xo! m

    Bit late to the party, but up at 7am this morning to send some quiet nothingness from the stream with the stellar jays behind my house out and on to the test taking rooms in life.

    This stunningly beautiful young woman and her mother just amaze…creating far in to the dream in so short a time.

    We are the architects of it all. How brilliant and beautiful the powerful creations of the creators in the world when we remember!!! Dream big or stay home 🙂 The world at your feet AND overhead!

    Congratulations Chloe. Welcome to the magic of dreaming big and making it real. FEEL it, see it, taste it, hear it, smell it and eventually you will touch the happening of it out in the living of your life.

    -x.M

      Dear dear M ~
      We enter conversation with your words and film clip as the lighter fluid starter. Chloe reflects from your words that she is indeed learning how to use the raw materials that the world seems to throw her way to make new creations more to her liking. Your mirror reflects back to her the truth of this – which then reflects a light onto a dawning and growing awareness of mother and daughter! Chloe shares an example of this new flow in her life: when her art project at school was shattered when someone knocked it over, Instead of freaking out, she was able to sit and think, now what? She gathered the mirror shards and made them into something she liked even better. Small moments, big learning. When roofs meet roofs in the sky – all bets are off. I love you, wonderful friend M, always right on time with reflection and insight that spurs recognition and growth. (hope you are flowing like a zen cat today:) xo! m

    Love it love it love it! Just what I need when I have been admitted to grad school for the fall and we already had/have one college tuition to deal with – so the spiral down to LACK is sucking at my bones. I want to continue my astrology class, but that seems bad, selfish, absurd. “We don’t have the money!” screams at me every day. (Yet that doesn’t stop my trips to Starbucks.)

    Trust. And take action. Ah, what’s the phrase? “Pray for good crops, then pick up the plow.” No, that’s not it, but hopefully I’ve come close enough. Thank you Chloe and marga – and congratulations!!!

    • Alison and Don June 11, 2014 at 1:43 am #

      Go Kelly!

    • marga t. June 11, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

      Go Kelly, indeed. I don’t think we can have too many reminders for remembering our magic making abilities. This spring has taught me so much about staying present and trusting – instead of following thoughts into impossibilities. Take a step and the road rising to meet you! So excited am I for what you are creating for yourself! The life of Kelly, part 2! xo! m
