Maybe you already know your Higher Power has always been there, but I gotta say, I never cease to be amazed of all the ways my Higher Power shows up for me.
It’s not just that my Higher Power shows up for me, but that my HP shows up for me in ways where there’s absolutely no doubt it’s speaking to me, and only me.
As I start to recognize this, I start to see even more what the care of God might actually look like for me.
This may sound crazy, but it feels like we each have our own particular language and God can and does speak them all.
Here’s an example:
Some of you may know that I am a huge Harry Potter fan.
I grew up in a family full of alcoholism, addiction and abuse that left me feeling quite broken.
One of the first pieces of my journey towards healing was a counselor who suggested I read Harry Potter, since it was the story of a boy who was also horribly emotionally abused, and yet nevertheless had these amazing gifts to bring to the world.
The first few books had been out for awhile at this point, but I found the first one at a used book sale and bought it for a dollar. Once I read it, I was hooked.
Yes, it was a very inspiring story for me, but for the longest time, I really thought this experience was just one that gave me a lot of pleasure.
As my own spiritual growth has evolved however, I’ve found that many of the practices that resonate with me the most are grounded in pagan rituals around energy – what many people might refer to as magic.
That right there makes me go “Wow! How’d he know?”
But then just a couple years ago, I was looking for a Harry Potter quote appliqué I could put on the wall in my office.
I found one, but I also found the bumper sticker in the image above: “☮ ♥ HP”.
HP. Harry Potter. Higher Power. OMG!
But wait, there’s more! The symbol of my primary fellowship is a triangle with a circle in the middle.
You have to have read the last book, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” to know this, but the symbol of the Deathly Hallows is ALSO a triangle with a circle in the middle of it – with the addition of a line down the center. Like, seriously, OMFlippingG!!!
God has been talking to me, I mean, just to me.
Who knew? And how cool is that?
There is no doubt in my mind that my story is not unique, so I’d love to hear from you:
In what fun, lovely, and even freaky ways, has your Higher Power been talking just to you?
