Tuesday on my way to work I found a crisp $100 bill on the ground. Today I got fingerprinted for my adoption. The cost: $99.
I’m often asked what my spiritual practice is. My answer: Saying, “Yes”. When I feel something come alive inside of me, I simply say, “Yes”. When I’m given a vivid dream, I say “Yes”. When I see a vision of something that is not yet earthside, I say “Yes”. When I begin to doubt I choose to say “Yes”. I might not understand it, but I know what I know. This is the best part about it. We don’t have to understand it for it to come into being.
I often carry things inside of me for years before I live them in the earthly plane. Nurturing them, seeking them out, embracing them, aching with them as I wait and hope for them to come into their fullness, into their being. During the life of these inklings I am often afraid, uncomfortable, mystified, sometimes overwhelmed, but I know that what we see on the physical plane is only a small part of what is really going on. Just because something is not yet earthside doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. Perhaps its existence is even more real than what we can see with our human eyes or touch with our physical hands.
I purposed long ago to live openly my journey towards understanding the other realms. To live transparently as an example for others to see how this really works and how it is walked out humanly, with all of our limitations.
This year I will adopt a baby. Many years ago I was given a very vivid dream of a child who was to be mine. Over time the spirit realm has shown me many things about this child. The child itself has also visited me. There is so much of it that I don’t understand, yet it all makes perfect sense. That is the tension between the human mind that wants things to make sense and the spirit who already knows.
My journey to adoption is a perfect example of what it looks like to say, “Yes” and just how unearthly it all really is. I’ve known for a long time that I had the capacity to adopt. I started to get the feeling over the last few years that that time was drawing near. At the turn of the new year, the tides also turned and I just knew that it was time.
It’s a really big deal in more ways than one. There are a lot of practical elements to figure out. Adoption is a pricey endeavor. I’m adopting by myself. I live in one of the most expensive cities in the world. It doesn’t add up. What I have learned through walking out my spiritual practice of saying yes is that it doesn’t have add up. My part is to make myself available, not to figure out the how. The spirit realm has already decided that what it has shown me is to be. This means that it already knows exactly how it will make it happen.
If we waited for everything to be perfect, we likely wouldn’t do many things. The spiritual realm responds to action. Say “Yes”, take one practical step at a time and the way will unfold, what is needed will be provided for.
If it’s hard to believe, watch me. I’ll share with you my journey so that at no cost to yourself you can see how this works.
To saying “Yes” and resting in never having to do it alone,
