I talk to the universe a lot, pretty much everyday. I often get insights about something I’m pondering, but on this particular day it went way beyond that!
On January 2, 2019, exactly one month after my mother passed away (and roughly six months after we lost our dog), I was walking through the house thinking about space and about how there was going to be more of it in my life because of these losses. For several days I had been sensing that something new was brewing, but I didn’t know what it could be.
As I continued on I had the thought to ask the universe how I was supposed to serve with whatever was going to come into the space. That seemed to be the million dollar question, because within a short amount of time I got a very specific answer. In a flash I was “told” that I was going to write a children’s book series about the energy of love, the name of the series, that it would be in rhyme scheme, the first two lines of the first book, and who the illustrator was meant to be. Yowza!
The name of the series:
Did You Know?
The first two lines of the first book:
Did you know that when you say hi to the sky,
You are really saying hi to yourself?
You are made of the sun and the stars
And so much wonderful else!
Her name is Stephanie Rosas, and she happens to be my son’s girlfriend. (In the flash I saw the painting of my dog that Stephanie had given me for my birthday a few months before. As you can see, just as the universe had intended, she was perfect for my books!)
And here we are nearly two years later with two books published and the third one already written and illustrated! There’s more to the story, though, so you’ll have to come back soon for a longer chat…
