I quickly left home one morning in order to make an appointment and I accidentally went south on the 405, when I should have gone north on the highway.
I must had been on auto-pilot because usually I’m very conscious of where I’m going, especially when I drive. After I realized my error, and how little time I had left, I grumbled and took the first exit to turn around.
A red light stopped me in my speedy tracks and I pulled up to a disheveled woman on my left, asking for donations. As I sat there, her genuine and peaceful energy intoxicated me and I decided to give her a few dollars. I typically hold onto my change in these situations but
A strong nudge instantly dissolved any remnants of discernment I had.
I quickly grabbed my wallet before the light changed, and found a twenty. “Was it too much?” The voice in my heart gave me a feeling of compassion, and I rolled down my window. The woman’s eagle eyes observed my cue as she approached my vehicle. I folded the twenty, and handed it to her. She reached for my gift, not looking at the amount and her face softened.
She said, “I was just thinking about getting a new bible. I’ve been praying for help…PRAYING.”
The red light turned green and I slowly drove through the intersection, our eyes still locked. I didn’t want to go until I watched her take a look at what I gave her. Not wanting to upset the drivers behind me, I decided to focus on the road and then heard a ruckus. I knew at that moment, she looked. Her resonance of words followed me as I drove away… “I LOVE YOU! GOD BLESS YOU!”
My window was still down and I shouted back, “I love you too!” as I waved those good vibes back to her. I was saturated with so much love, my eyes teared up.
Her form dissipated in my rearview mirror. I knew in my heart I’d never see her again. I wished her a good, happy life.
I got back on the highway.
Little did I know, a wrong turn ended up being the right one in every way. I may have given her some money, but she gave me a taste of unconditional love.
A Divine Intervention Indeed,
