What you put out into the universe comes back to you. I recently had an umbrella stolen from me. At first, I was mad because I really liked that umbrella. My life coach gave it to me and it was so small it fit into my pocket. I would get complimented on how cute it was. The day it got stolen of course it was raining. I had to walk to my car in the rain. Then I remembered something that I did years ago. When I used to work at a retail store, there was this duck umbrella that I liked. I don’t know who owned it but it was left for a whole month in the break room, so I helped myself to it. I had that umbrella for about 10 years before it broke. With this recent incident, I realized that the umbrella was never really mine. Someone else needed that umbrella, so now it is their umbrella. I just told myself, “Charge it to the Universe”. To me that means to let it go and not to worry over what happened. My time with that object was done. I used to work at a hospital where my lunch got eaten by someone else about 3 times. At first, I was upset. I didn’t have anything to eat for lunch. Luckily the hospital would give me a voucher, so that I could get something under $5 from either the lunchroom or McDonalds. I thought about the person who ate my food, whoever that person was. That person may have been going through some very hard times. That person may not have had the courage to ask for a voucher for lunch. That person may not have wanted to tell anybody about what was going on. So if I could help feed someone who is going through a hard time then I’m happy. It was just a Lean Cuisine which was about 3 or 4 dollars. I can spare that to help someone else out. When you are building up your Universal Currency, sometimes it is your turn to deposit and sometimes it is your turn to withdraw. Sometimes it is your turn to receive and sometimes it is your turn to give. There is enough for everybody. By me “losing” the umbrella, it was my turn to give to the universe. In the past, I would pay for things and end up not going. I paid for a plane ticket, dinners, and even a parasailing adventure and didn’t end up going. I didn’t even ask for a refund because I just didn’t feel like it. I just told myself that apparently the company needed the money and went about my business. I didn’t want to tell them that I just changed my mind at the last minute and didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to tell them that I felt fat that day and wanted to stay at home. I’m laughing at myself because I’m sure that would not have been a valid reason for a refund. Now when I pay for something I end up going because now I’m not depressed and I want to go on adventures. So I just had a Charge It to the Universe moment. I need to learn to let go or give willingly. Things come and things go but the lessons that I learn will stay for many lifetimes.
