Someone much wiser than I once said, “The Universe doesn’t always give you what you want; but it will provide what you need.”

I was reminded of this axiom last week, when I was blindsided by an employer, who informed me (as I walked in the door) that if I wanted to be paid for my services, I would be expected to “cooperate” with a brand new set of rules — rules that would significantly decrease my income.

No, I was not happy about this arrangement. However, my angelic guidance was strong that day:  “YOU are the creator of your experience,” the angels whispered, “not your employer. Decide now. What level of success do you want today?”

The Universe was testing me. How easy it would have been to succumb to anger and resentment! But the Universal Law of Attraction promises that our personal energies (thoughts and feelings) create our day-to-day experiences — every time!  Believe me when I say, anger is NOT the energy that a psychic wants to use to attract clients.

So I made up my mind to find the positive in the situation. I focused on gratitude for the opportunity to be of service to others. Once I cleared my negative emotional response, new clients started pouring in. Several of them were referrals from colleagues, who had enthusiastically received musical “harp healings” from me in the past. I was also able to receive a psychic consultation from a colleague — a consultation that pointed me toward an answer that had consistently eluded me in my own meditations!

None of these wonderful experiences would have occurred, if I’d made up my mind to hold a grudge against my employer. Wow. The Universe really did provide what I needed!
