Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Buzzy morning I have had. Mary and Kate know that I have been dying to find a yoga place here in North Canterbury, but alas, all my searching has been to no avail.

The local rag was sitting on the dining table and I went to put it straight into the recycling bin, when something made me open it. There was a woman's face staring out at me. I didn't know her but she seemed familiar. I went to the page her story was on and found an article all about an accomplished dancer I had already had a conversation with on the phone with regard to getting Peta into Jazz lessons. I read on about all her experience, mother of four, dancing around the world with different dance companies, and how she had landed in North Canterbury to escape the rat race and was running her dance studio. I kept reading and, voila (lol Kate!!), she takes YOGA classes.

I phoned straight away, introduced myself and said that we had already spoken regarding dance classes for Peta but she had no spaces available and I was just ringing to put Peta on the waiting list. She laughed and said "you were supposed to phone me this morning, a little girl has just been advanced into the next level so we have space for Peta to start next term". I then went on and mentioned the Yoga. She got excited beyond belief when I explained why I wanted to start yoga, what I was studying and where my beliefs lay. She is an extremely spiritual woman and I just can't believe how one little opening of a paper has me right where I want to be in half an hour.

Put it out there people, and it will come.

That is so so true and so cool! I love that. It is what has happened to me for so many of my 101 list things - you ask and the universe delivers. I am sounding more and more like a hippy every day, and I don't care, lol.

Voila!

This is AWESOME Jules! Yeah, we're all a bunch of hippy talking freaks now but hey, who's happier. The universe definitely answers if you want it bad enough and are open to it :-)

So does this mean she teaches yoga classes or knows somewhere close to go??

Oh how true it is! I've yet to watch The Secret but have heard heaps about it but have to admit I wonder if coincidences really do exist.
