I so often think back on how things have come together in order to unfold the way I find them in my life today. It is an exciting journey of exploring. It helps to understand the universal laws, gives lots of profound insights, and therefore strengthens my faith.
My most impressive string of unfolding in order to come to new unfolding is the story of how I came to write my book I’m Free and so much that followed. It is a huge story. When you read my book then you find lots of examples in it from my own life of how to break free. I am currently writing a new book which is about miracles. The story I want to tell you today is mentioned in that book and it is still a miracle to me. But at the same time, it is only a part of a far bigger miracle that still seems to unfold.
In 2009 my husband and I flew to California. My best friend had lived there for 15 years at that time. I was happy to finally meet him again after so many years and also visit California for the first time in my life. My friend had to deal with mental issues at that time (depression and panic attacks). I hoped that maybe it would help more to have talks instead of only emailing.
During our stay in California, my husband and I had an appointment in Santa Rosa far in the north of California. We went to LAX waiting for our flight. It was early March and it was hot in SoCal. When we wanted to go to the gate we heard the announcement that our flight was delayed. The plane which came from Reno couldn’t start due to heavy snowfalls over there. So we walked around the airport and found a little bookstore. Never in my life had I read an English book before. By emailing my friend I made an effort to write in English but I still had to use my dictionary since I was out of practice. Anyway, I went straight into the corner of “Self-Development” and just sneaked about a little. All of a sudden a title caught my eye. It said: Your Scared Self. I looked at the author but I never heard of him. I was clued to the words because I immediately thought of my own fears and also of my friend’s problems. I picked the book and took a look at the content. There was a chapter called Shut down your inner dialogue! I knew I had to buy this book.
That book turned out as a turning point in my life. It gave me all the answers I was looking for. It connected all the missing pieces that were flying around me. I felt a growing faith within me and was excited to finally apply into my life what I believed to understand. I wasn’t afraid anymore but truly curious. My life turned around and I did not step back anymore which half a year later resulted in breaking free of my armor of fears.
Now, where are the miracles? I went to California in order to meet and help my friend. (Wouldn’t have gone there otherwise. Meanwhile, that place has become the fuel station for my soul.) Only because our flight to Santa Rosa was delayed I considered looking at English books. I read the title and knew I had to take it. BUT!!! About one or two weeks later I realized that I had read the title the wrong way. It actually was Your Sacred Self. I would have never bought it if I had read the title as it was. The content of the book forced my inner development at a high speed. I read more books by that amazing author – and I only did it in English, which improved my knowledge enormously. I went to a lecture by this author half a year later in California. It was my first trip all by myself – I always feared being by myself before. During that time I had my breakthrough and started writing about liberating from fears and doubts. It was published 2 1/2 years later in German and after two more years in English. And here I am. I am able to give interviews in English and I am running an English blog. I meet the most amazing people here which opens up even more potential for miracles. Btw, this unknown author was Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Last October I joined his lecture at the same convention I had my book signing as an officially announced author. When I saw him in 2009 in Santa Monica I immediately thought: “I want to do what he does…” Some small miracles in the perfectly arranged result unfolded as steps towards a new life.
That is only a little excerpt. The picture is so much bigger. So many more things are related to or occurred out of these “coincidences”. It is an amazing net organized in perfect order. What a loving intelligence that’s here at work!!!
Miracles do happen. We only need to trust our inner voice, start walking in the direction which feels right and follow the signs. Miracles are falling into place as a result.
Yeah, I love to look back and explore how things have come together in order to unfold the way I find them in my life today.
In Love and Light!
OH my goodness what a beautiful story! WOW! I think you are brave taking on the English language. Since this is what I do edit I know it is hard to use the right tense and also the way we work things is so different from German. I love that you didn’t read the title correctly on that book. I had to admit I did not buy books titled like that as well. What a beautiful miracle. You know what I bet you have a lot of moments where you want to pinch yourself to make sure it’s all real. I’m so happy to meet you Erika and that you were so brave. I can see your sweet heart and I love it! I love this post so much! Yay for you! Love to you yay! ❤❤❤

Reading your words makes me pinch myself just right away. Only 5 years ago I would have never thought that I would sit here talking with one of the loveliest souls on the planet and with so many other wonderful people as it would have been that way already for decades. I am so blessed and yes, Michelle, at the moment so many miracles happen to me that I am constantly pinching myself. Life is amazing!!! I am so happy to hear your excitement out of your words. Things will change dramatically as soon as you feel this enthusiasm about life and yourself.
