The most incredible thing happened yesterday. A little magic came down to nudge me in the right direction. In the morning, I was reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. He was writing about the Greek muses that can inspire our creative process if we show up for the work every day like a real professional.
Shortly after that I was watching Gabby’s video blog about co-creating with the Universe and asking for specific signs. So I said, “Ok, Universe. If I’m headed on the right track with my career, show me one of the nine muses.” Just so I could remember their names (Calliope, Clio, Euterpe, Erato, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia and Urania), I wrote them down on a post-it note and put it in my jacket pocket.
I went to work and had a pretty tough, long day. I had forgotten all about the muses until the drive home. I was looking around on license plates, bumper stickers, trying to pay attention.
When I got home I was feeling tired, but decided to go to the gym for just 30 minutes. I walk in and notice a familiar face at the front desk. I do a double-take and bump into one of the employees. Finally, I ask the woman, “Are you one of the AstroTwins?” She said yes. It was Tali Edut from Astrostyle.com. I’m a huge fan and even have one of her astrology books on my bookshelf. I was so happy to meet her, and we even chatted for a few minutes.
I went on with my workout and tried not to bug her with my eagerness. Be cool, Nicole, be cool. But then I also realized that her name, Tali, is ridiculously close to Thalia, the Greek muse of comedy and idyllic poetry. Mind. Blown. The AstroTwins have a strong online business that helps people all over the world. The create inspiring online products and have written books. This is the sign and desired direction of my business. I see and know that it’s possible.
This little gift, coincidence, surprise from the Universe completely made my day. I’m seeing that if I want to co-create, I have to be specific and ask for exactly what I want to see in my life. Now I’m excited to get creative and ask for other signs to guide me along the way. Life is way more fun when it’s infused with a little magic and a little mystery. Bring it on, Universe!
