Often times we get so involved with our daily lives and the complexity of everything that we deal with that we forget to ask for help from the resource pool of the unseen dimension. My book Hiring the Heavens gives a simple idea to bring the power of “ask and you shall receive” right to your doorstep. I received this email recently from a friend….
A couple of years ago a watch I love needed a new battery and some additional work. It is a good watch I have worn every day for the 14 years since it was gifted to me. The estimate to complete the work was $350.00. I did not have enough extra money to complete the repairs. I had the battery changed by a local jeweler ($25) and hired a spiritual committee as outlined in Jean’s book, Hiring the Heavens, to keep my watch running for a bit longer until I had the money to repair it. The first week the watch stopped working two times. For the next 9 months the watch would only work while I was wearing it.
Then the most extraordinary thing happened…it just began to keep perfect time all the time. My watch maintenance committee was “hired” 2 years ago. I never expected that my request would be answered in a way that was above and beyond my original intention.
This spiritual committee did such good work I asked them to take on more and more maintenance. My car is 13 years old and has 223,000 miles. I really need to keep that car running. I began to think of other things around my home and life that needed the benefit of general maintenance so I put together a Maintenance and Operations Committee as written;
Dear Maintenance and Operations Committee: Thank you for all you do everyday to free me from repair activities. Please continue to help. Please keep all aspects of our home, the land on which it sits including all buildings and structures operating in optimum physical condition. Please also include all tools, appliances and electronics. Please keep all services like electricity, water, gas, cable, wireless connections and sewer coming into, within and/or flowing out of this space operating in optimum condition. Please also assure the plants and animals (including the humans) share this space in harmony.
Please keep our vehicles operating in excellent/optimum condition. Please keep all vehicles in which we are passengers operating in excellent/optimum condition.
My husband asked a few months ago if I had one of those committee things taking care of his truck. I said yes. He said his truck had not gone so long without needing a repair of some kind.
We do have repairs now and then. Batteries still wear out and my 7- year old laptop finally stopped working. But the two times our car needed repair the vehicle stopped running within a few blocks of our home and the home of a friend. We always do our part; change the oil regularly, replace worn faucet gaskets etc. We did those maintenance tasks in the past but we never had such long spaces between repairs as we now enjoy. It is so nice to have help. My watch is still running perfectly.
