“The Philosophy of the broken plate ” is a wonderful and uplifting way to look at life’s treasures and signs from the Universe that we are on the right path.
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.
The change in the colors of the seas.
The feeling that land is very close.
In one of the numerous books I study on energy healing and manifestation (Forgive me for at this moment I do not recall the title of this book) there is a story of a woman that expresses this philosophy, that I call “The philosophy of the Broken Plate.”
Following all the prescribed guidances * to manifest abundance and beautiful things
this woman wanted to attract a beautiful set of plates into her life.
*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. It’s close, very close!
The same as the sailors headed towards land and seeing the signs of nature!
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, being 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.
Contrary to the negative programing we’ve had, KEEP YOUR HOPES UP!
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!
