Wanna Dance?

Have you ever noticed that when you decide to make a change, the universe rallies to support you?

Recently, I started making efforts to take even better care of my financial health. I began to look for places where I could be more savvy and cautious about my spending. The first call I made was to my eye doctor to see if I can get a new contact prescription without a full exam because I wasn’t eligible for an insurance-covered appointment until January of 2014 and I was out of contacts.

tangoNot only do I find out that, yes, I can schedule an affordable contact-renewal appointment, but that they also have a referral on record from my primary care physician that allows an early insurance-covered appointment for a full exam. But there’s a catch. The referral expires the next day.

Luckily (or is it?) they had a cancellation for the very next day. I look at my calendar and see a pretty full schedule. The appointment would need to be after 3 PM for me to make it.

“What time’s the opening?” I ask.

“Three-thirty,” she answers.

“Sweet! I’ll take it.”

As further confirmation of this universal dance, we receive two reservation requests for Airbnb. If you’re not familiar with Airbnb, here’s a snippet from their website describing what it is:

Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries. And with world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.”

These room requests have the potential to make us about $700 in less than two weeks. Because we’re available to host, we agree to the requests to further support our intention of improving our finances, and to let the universe know we want to stay in the flow.

Just two days after accepting the reservation requests, I receive an unexpected refund check in the mail for an unnecessary co-pay. Although the amount is small, I still see it as universal intervention supporting my new intention.

And the dance goes on and on. When I feel stuck, I do my best to let that be a prompt to take a step. The universe never tires of being on the dance floor, but it can’t glide with dead weight. As the saying goes, it takes two to tango! By breaking your actions down into teeny-tiny, doable steps, you’re much more likely to make some moves and stay in the dance. When you learn to see life in this way, it empowers you to know you have everything it takes to accomplish everything you want.

Where are you feeling stuck? What “coincidences” have you experienced that you can see in this new way? Let’s keep chatting in the comments below. Your input is vital in making this conversation rich!

    Love that. You talking about Airbnb was the coincidence, as I was just thinking of renting out my apartment when I fly. Wishing you unlimited abundance.

    I’m still in the dance…the problem is no “fluid movement”!haha I am taking baby steps, my mind is still very unorganized. Maybe I should have taken your class to “declutter”?!

      Hi Gina,

      Yes, baby steps are great. When your mind feels overwhelmed, take a breath and refocus on what your current step is and come back to it. You’ve got this!

      Oh, and it’s not too late to sign up for the clutter class. Although we only have 1 live class left, all classes are recorded and available for replay and you’ll still benefit from the powerful support in the Facebook group which will stay open and active until the next round (March). You can sign up here: http://www.kerririchardson.com/clutter-busters-2.

    I just had a relevant experience this past week to your post. I was thinking about attending The Movers and Shakers workshop coming up but I looked at the whole picture and didn’t think I was ready or see how I was going to make it happen so I decided on Friday, I’ll go next year. I got an email the very next day from the universe 🙂 (expedia sent me a reminder about my flight search to New York at exactly the angels signature 4:44pm.) This was a familiar sign and a clear message letting me know that next year was the wrong answer. I opened my heart to going and all the walls I saw before blocking my path just fell away. From extra finances, to the hotel being on a 20% discount sale for just a few hours at the exact time I was ready to book my trip, to my work schedule clearing up, the path just cleared like I was in a Disney movie! I was excited and stunned as I watched all the walls turn into doors. It helped me realize it was my own beliefs blocking me from the magic that was trying to get through to support the path that I should follow now and not off in a future moment. It made me wonder in what other ways I’ve been standing in the way of my own breakthroughs…. I’ll give that some more thought now that I’ve read this post! Thanks Kerri for the inspiration cause I wanna dance!

      Fantastic, Rakale! Love this story. Thanks for sharing. I was almost going to that same event, but unfortunately, now cannot. Bummer because it would’ve been great to meet up! Have a wonderful time, and yes, keep seeing doors instead of walls!
