I wanted to share this story since it concerns my feather collection but also involves following a vision. It doesn’t really connect to Warrior but hey– ya never know! All these smaller events brought the bigger ones and this one follows that pattern. “Finding Feathers” was a previous post shortly after I started this blog and the full story is told in the chapter “Out of the Blue” ( or is it Red?) in Spirit and Belief.
Once I had discovered many feathers, they just didn’t all seem to fit in my little ziplock bag anymore or even a big bag! I thought a box would work to display them nicely. My mind actually visualized the type of box I wanted but also thought of the type I didn’t want. Wooden- yes, kid-like, no. Nothing too ornate but not overly simple that required decorating.
For all you online shoppers out there, am sure you’d just get something from Amazon or e-bay right? I do some shopping that way but personal stuff– nah, can’t do it. This is just like the sign story a few posts ago and that candle lantern with those warrior batteries. Can’t say I would’ve had those same experiences with online shopping. Yes, it’s convenient and works well but not for my stories!
I did go to some stores a few years ago and nothing really appealed to me so the thought waned. The vision was still there in the back of my mind but it wasn’t like a mission or anything. If I found something I loved, great. If I didn’t, it would wait. Maybe that is what I needed to do this time around instead of shopping like an ultimate maniac! The sign I found right away, the lantern had me all over the place, (but VERY worth it!) and the box had me in between.
I went to this home goods store without being overly concerned with finding the “perfect feather box.” By being casual and calm, I noticed some that interested me. This box was perfect and actually had feathers on it– what are the odds? 😉 I love the hearts too. The one thing that bothered me was its size. It was way too big for the space I needed to display and wouldn’t fit. I looked on the shelf and they all seemed the same. It was so perfect and I knew it would work somehow.
Before leaving the aisle, I moved some aside and there was this exact box– only smaller. Word to the wise is always move items aside to search thru everything. I’m not saying wreck shelves or anything but we’ve all had that happen before. Clothes are the worst with a size listed on a hanger and a different one on the fabric– ugh! 😳
Well, I found my new feather box only after thinking more calmly, not becoming too attached, and searching a shelf carefully. I just realized how these three stories are similar when I really hadn’t noticed before. Here’s those signs again in a group of three. The lantern, word sign, and feather box with very different shopping experiences.
Don’t become a shopaholic and don’t become an online shopaholic either. A mix of both is fine. My intuition and the Universe or my spirit team nudged me with all three of these items just like it does for you everyday. Think hard, I bet you can remember times that “signs” happened and it worked! Patience is one of the many lessons I am learning on this journey as evidenced with my shopping experiences. We all need patience and if we practice, it will come. Let’s share our experiences together! Follow my new spiritual blog at: www.spiritandbelief.com
