There is a book that I’ve read that has allowed me to embed the “broken plate philosophy” into my life.
(Forgive me as I cannot at the moment find the book or the passages)
but What I can do is expound in my own words this wonderful way of looking at life!
I want you to imagine the ancient mariners after sailing for years on the open sea.
Before they call the infamous “LAND HO, they see evidence of the end of their long and arduous journey through the endless blue.
Being experienced sailors they recognize the signs.
The smells of earth.
The birds surrounding the ship.
The seaweed telling them they are in shallow waters.
In this book it tells of a woman’s story of this same occurrence, and I call it “the Broken plate philosophy”.
Following all the prescribed guidances * to manifest abundance and beautiful things into her life,
this woman wanted attract a beautiful set of plates.
*She did the affirmations of love and forgiveness.
*She recognized the power of her words. (whether they were of lack or of fortune)
* She disciplined herself to think positively, no matter what her ‘so called reality’ was.
*She released her deep subconscious limiting thoughts and thought only of expansion.
And so one day she happened upon a rummage sale and found the most beautiful, wondrous plate but it was broken!
She went immediately to her friend, the healer, and complained about this broken plate.
“This isn’t what I wanted!” “It’s Broken!”
With great wisdom and compassion the healer told her,”This is the sign!”
This is the sign that you are on the right path, as the sailors, headed towards land!
How happy this woman was to hear these wise and encouraging words!
She was so encouraged that soon she manifested the perfect plate set she truly wanted. Her attitude of expecting, hopeful and being encouraged was what triggered the fast response from the benevolent Universe.
And so I say to myself and to those of you who may be reading this.
Look for the signs and you will find them.
If we want money and find a penny on the ground, Rejoice!
If we want a great recording studio and find a cassette player, it’s coming!
