Sitting in the left hand lane of a two lane road at a red light about to turn green, she drove right up beside me.
I was contemplating some recent choices I had made in the way I do my business and who my ideal client really is.
She made a cheeky decision to turn left into a side street and proceeded to do so just as the light turned green and all the cars in my lane moved forward, including me!
Seconds after accelerating I found myself being pushed left and heard the god-awful crunch of my car bending and crumpling.
I thought that she hadn’t heard the noise or felt the bump because she JUST KEPT ON GOING, determined to drive into that left hand side street, pushing me with her.
In just those few seconds I noticed the look of astonishment on the faces of the drivers around me, a few even throwing up their hands in a sign of ‘what the…!’.
I quickly reversed just the few inches that the car close behind me would allow, just trying to get away from her car pushing mine and continuing the damage.
Long story short; getting out of my car I noticed a very upset, very old lady sitting in her car struggling to control her upset. I gave her a hug and keeping a calming hand on her arm proceeded to get her insurance details and carry out the business of car accidents whilst assuring her that all would be ok.
The power in this story for me is not in the telling of the accident but in the realisation that I was very calm, in control and more concerned for the poor old lady who was upset at having hit my car; and in what followed.
I returned to my car having assured myself that she was ok to drive the remaining 2 blocks to her home and having instructed her to call her insurance company once she got there.
In the 5 minutes it took me to drive to my own home I began contemplating the reason for this accident.
Being one who knows beyond doubt that I am the creator of my reality I began to wander why I had created this.
The arrogant ego part of me considered that I had been acting as a catalyst for something for the old lady being that I am so aware and enlightened (insert tongue in cheek tone here).
I also remained open to the possibility that there was a hidden reason in all this for me and so I asked my guidance what it was and kept going about my life having faith that one day soon the awareness would show up.
Well, don’t you know it…the very next day as I was heading toward that same set of lights, leaving my local shopping centre, a teenage girl reversed out of her parking spot right in front of me. I stopped in time and waited for her to finish reversing before following her onto the main road.
Then it hit me…777…that was the registration number of this young girls car in front of me right now.
It was also the registration number of the car being driven by the old lady the day before!
I know when I’m being shown a message and so I took myself back to that instant right before the accident yesterday and I said to my past self ‘what exactly was I thinking about in that moment that she hit my car?’.
If you remember at the beginning of my story I was contemplating some recent steps I had taken in my business around who I serve.
I have asked my own guides for confirmation around this question so many, many times and upon reflection I realise that every time I get confirmation from them verbally I dismiss it as my own thoughts just telling me what I want to hear and so…
my attention was got!Today, I thank my guidance / higher self / soul for the gentle way in which they had to give me my confirmation. No-one was physically hurt and since insurance companies are involved no 1 physical being (me or the old lady) is going to lose out over it and I give thanks for that.
I also give thanks for my own realisation that I have changed in the very core of my being. In the past my very first thought would have been about how I would not be able to afford to pay for repairs if I had to and the drama around losing my car whilst it is being repaired and all the other stuff that used to bother me. We were both OK and what else was important…nothing else mattered and I was able to use my energy instead to comfort and assure the other party, even when I was the (so-called) injured party.
Today I read what Doreen Virtue says is the Angel Number meaning of 777 and I have my confirmation.
Congratulations! You’ve listened well to your Divine guidance and have put that wisdom into fruitful action. You’re now reaping the rewards. Your success is inspiring and helping others, so please keep up the good work.
Do you receive guidance through numbers or some other way? Why not share in the comments…we’d love to hear about it.
