This is a very different article than the one I thought I would be publishing today. You see, I actually had one written for the past week or so that I thought I would be sharing. But things change.

So instead, this is about magic, synchronicity, timing, and being taken care of.

I was going to announce that I was closing Storm Wisdom. I was confident in my decision and had communicated it to my amazing team and even notified our local artists. Today was going to be the first day of our inventory liquidation, with a goal of locking the doors for the last time in less than three months.

But that is no longer the plan.

Instead, we are going to be moving to a smaller space in this same ‘Shea Plaza’ complex, about 100 feet away from our current spot. I am still working out the details, but I am confident this is the direction we’re heading in. And it feels good.

Last year was a tough year financially for us and for retail in general. We hadn’t seen those kinds of numbers (sales) for over ten years. It was stressful, to say the least. But we were making changes and feeling hopeful. However, rebounding from such a low point was hard. I was feeling exhausted.

I reached a breaking point that I didn’t realize was so close. When I hit that point, I decided there was no other option than closing a business that I love.

At the 11th hour, something new emerged. The landlord extended an offer. A good offer.

Had I not given my notice to vacate, it would never have happened. It wasn’t even something that I could have envisioned because it seemed outside the realm of possibility.

Mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, I didn’t know if I could make the switch from “letting go” to moving forward again. Especially in one day. All while we had artists we have worked with for a long time, showing up to collect their consignment pieces that have been part of the uniqueness of our shop. It was confusing and just plain weird.

But sometimes that is how magic works. I have a mentor named Annie Bossingham who channels a number of conscious beings/entities, who for the last year or so have been talking about how we are moving into a time of “transcendent” magic. Magic that simply drops in and is beyond what we can imagine for ourselves. They say this is coupled with conscious choice, where we are naturally allowing our choices to emerge energetically and in alignment with our whole being, versus “figuring it out.”

I know what that means now. I know how it feels. I am living the experience of it right now. It feels good, and it is shocking at the same time.

This makes me think of all the synchronicities that had to happen and how the timing had to be just right for everything to turn on a dime. I love how the Universe conspires to support us even when we don’t know we are looking for support.

I’m not sure how all of this will play out yet and when it will happen. However, I do know I want you along for the ride. So I will let you know what I know, when I know it. And don’t be surprised if it happens at the Eleventh Hour.
