View from the villa in Barbados
About a year ago now, my oldest, bestest friend Elly announced that she was getting married in Barbados. 6 months after that she had the date set for November 27th, 2013. I knew that I wanted to be there but at that point it wasn’t clear how I would make that happen financially. So rather than going into limitation, I started talking to the universe and asking how this dream could come true.
I started with the question “What would it take to be in Barbados for Elly’s wedding? And anything that doesn’t allow that, will I destroy and uncreate it all? YES!!” I then used the clearing statement which clears any energies that may block the Barbados trip from happening. ( Please find the link to the recording for the 1 hour telecall that I held explaining the Clearing Statement.) I asked this question and used the clearing statement every day at least once a day if not more. Emotionally I was in the space of trust and allowance, knowing that anything is possible as long as I don’t limit myself. So I stayed really relaxed about it with a clear vision of what I wanted, and most importantly, I didn’t go into conclusion as to how I would get there.
In June, after approximately 2 months of asking “What would it take to be in Barbados for Elly’s wedding?” I received a message from a woman named Lisa who is one of Elly’s closest friends. I don’t know Elly’s friends as I have lived in the UK for the past 14years, most of my adult life and Elly now lives in Victoria, Canada. Elly and I grew up together in Vancouver, Canada from age 4 until University.
It’s strange because I can’t fully remember what I said to Elly but I must have said something about not knowing if I could come to the wedding for sure. Apparently Elly was in tears to her friends about it so they came up with a grand plan. For Elly’s wedding present Lisa and 5 of Elly’s closest friends wanted to contribute to my flight to Barbados!!! I was going to be the surprise wedding present for Elly!
I was nearly knocked sideways when Lisa offered this to me. I could not believe that 6 women whom I had never met would give this incredibly generous gift. Of course this was a gift for Elly, but it was also a massive gift for me. My first thought was “Can I really accept this beyond generous offer?” But then I quickly remembered that the universe gifts us in the most unexpected ways sometimes and we simply need to open up to receive and say Yes. So even though I was quite uncomfortable about it, I said a big huge YES! This seriously rocked my world. To top it off, I was offered a sofa to sleep on at Elly’s parents place. When I arrived, they had a massive water front property villa with a huge bedroom and walk in bathroom just for me. Seriously, I thought I was in a dream. I have been deeply moved by everyone’s incredible generosity and I receive it all with a warm, open and gracious heart. This has been one of the best holidays that I have ever had, and the first holiday on my own since having kids. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Did you know that the universe is trying to gift you all of the time? How many ways have you limited yourself from receiving? Most of us have a small window of what we will allow ourselves to receive and a huge amount of judgement as to what is or is not acceptable to receive. There are infinite possibilities to receiving, money is just one way. Would you have said yes to $500 from someone you don’t know? How many judgements do you have about that? I know that I definitely had a few, but I caught them as judgements, cleared the judgements and sat with the discomfort of receiving out of my comfort zone. Most of us will only receive money from working long, hard hours for example. This is mainly because it’s the only way that we have been taught that money can come to us. What if that is not true? Would you be willing to receiving in magical, unexpected ways with ease?
What would you like to have show up in your life? You can start with something simple to practice with. Then start asking every day “What would it take for X to show up? And anything that does not allow it (you don’t even need to know what that is) will you destroy and uncreate it all? If the answer is yes, then move on to the magic wand which is the Clearing Statement. Do this everyday until it shows up. Sometimes it’s very quick and sometimes it takes a long time, depending on what it is. Stick with it. That clearing statement will keep clearing out anywhere that you block yourself from allowing that thing/experience to show up in your life.
I would love to hear about your magical experiences. Please share your stories.

And by the way, I did not stop asking the question ‘What would it take to be in Barbados for Elly’s wedding’ until the day I left. I did this to keep the energies flowing in that direction. A few weeks before I left, I received a letter from my step mum with a very generous cheque to put towards my trip to Barbados! Completely out of the blue. Are you kidding me?! Holy cow, now my entire trip was paid for. How does it get any better than this?!
Thank you to all of Elly’s friends, Lisa, Jeanine, Becky, Michelle, Christine, Melissa, Elly’s parents, Becky and David, and to my step mum Michele. With Gratitude, Lara xx
