My Gift from Hugh Jackman


Once in a while something happens that is such a mind blowing coincidence that your jaw drops like Wile E. Coyote in a Roadrunner cartoon and you know there has to be more going on than meets the eye. This happened to me last week. I love listening to “Magical Things” with Radleigh Valentine every Thursday at 5 PM on Hay House Radio. The man truly is a miracle worker. With his compassionate heart, infectious giggle, and intuitive angel card readings, Radleigh assists the people who call in with questions and challenges to shift from fear back to love. Last Thursday he did a special show on how to connect with your guardian angels and how to discover their names. I believe angels are one of the many means that Spirit uses to send messages of Love to us here in the dream. Even though I have paintings of angels all over my apartment, I hadn’t thought about my personal guardian angel or her name in almost eight years.

I had been studying A Course in Miracles for about a year back in December of 2007.  I was beginning to tap in to my intuition and become more open to celestial assistance, so I decided it was time to ask my guardian angel to reveal her name to me. Somehow I had a sense she was female. Not long after I asked this question, one of my very sweet massage clients gave me an Amaryllis plant to give to my mother for Christmas. I had never heard of this plant before, and the name really struck me. Was this my guardian angel’s way of telling me her name? I shared this thought with some spiritual friends from my rose quartz family and they encouraged me to start communicating with her using this name. I did this for a while, but as time went on, I started second guessing my intuition, and eventually I stopped using the name. Ironically, one of the things Radleigh emphasized during the show was not to doubt or second guess the answer you get once you ask. He also said confirmation will show up in every day life to reinforce the answer, so keep your eyes and ears open. 

When the show ended, I sent Radleigh a note thanking him for reminding me about Amaryllis. Then, since I was still recovering from my cold and sinus symptoms, I settled in to watch a DVD that I had been wanting to see since last summer. Kate & Leopold came as part of a double DVD set with the movie Serendipity which I ordered after my birthday weekend in New York City. Both movies take place in the Big Apple, but I watched Serendipity right away because that was the movie we talked about during our trip. I wasn’t in a hurry to see Kate & Leopold because I had already seen it years ago. The funny thing is, I had a connection with the names Kate and Leopold back in 2004 during my first spiritual gathering over Valentine’s Day Weekend. That’s when I met my rose quartz family. I remembered there was a movie titled Kate & Leopold that came out in 2001, so after that gathering, I rented it thinking there might be a message in it for me. I have to admit I was a little disappointed when I watched it that first time. The movie was okay, but I did not find any specific message in it for me. That was about to change.

The movie stars Meg Ryan as Kate, an independent career woman living in modern day New York City. Her eccentric ex-boyfriend, Stuart, who lives in the apartment above her, discovers a rip in the fabric of time below the Brooklyn Bridge. He falls through the rip and travels back to the New York City of 1876. That’s where he encounters Leopold, the Duke of Albany, played by Hugh Jackman. While chasing Stuart, Leopold accidentally falls through the same time rip and ends up in modern day New York City with Stuart. Thinking he has no other options, Stuart brings Leopold back to his apartment where he eventually meets Kate and her brother Charlie. They think Leopold is an actor and his unusual manners and way of speaking are preparation for an acting role. Leopold and Charlie become friends, and Leopold begins coaching his new friend on the proper way to court a female. While in a flower shop, Charlie randomly picks out a prepackaged bouquet for the girl he is smitten with, but Leopold tells him the flowers he has selected are all wrong. He proceeds to tell him what each flower means and why it’s not appropriate. Then he brings out an unusual looking potted plant and says, “Might I suggest the Amaryllis which declares the recipient a most splendid beauty.” That’s when my jaw hit the floor like a cartoon coyote and any remaining doubts about the name of my guardian angel vanished. Yes, this was the very same day Radleigh did the show on guardian angels!

Synchronicities like this happen all the time during Family Constellations. The threads of commonality that run through each workshop never cease to amaze me. The healing that takes place is unprecedented. Come experience it for yourself, and see how we are much more alike than we are different. Participants arrive as strangers and leave as family. Life Coaching is another way to get back in touch with the magic and miracles of life. During our sessions I will share tools and methods that have helped me remain peaceful during trying times. When we are at peace, we are much more able to receive loving messages and guidance from Spirit. For more information please visit my website or you can send me an email directly. Until next time, I leave you with Miracle Principle #6 from A Course in Miracles:

 “Miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong.”

Have a miraculous week!
