When I was a kid I heard somebody say that 4 leaf clovers were lucky. But although I loved to sit outside on the grass and look at the tiny flowers growing there, I never bothered to look for a 4 leaf clover growing in the clover patch because I just knew that such a thing was not possible for me.
Perhaps you can relate to this?
Fast forward to 2013.
I was staying at a campsite just outside Glastonbury, England and I was doing a lot of self-healing for the childhood abuse I had lived through. It was intense. One day I finished my healing session and was immediately overcome with fatigue. I slept for about 30 minutes. Then I woke up with a strange vision inside my head.
Eventually I asked, "Why am I looking at a patch of clover?" I didn't hear an answer but somehow I just knew this was a patch of 4 leaf clovers. And I was not impressed.
I got off my campbed, muttered under my breath, "Yeah; RIGHT!" and stomped out of my tent. I forgot the vision and went on with my life.
That afternoon; as I wandered through the fields, I was once again drawn to the pink clover flowers. I had been enjoying looking at them for about a week and every day I had called to the Spirit of the Clover to join with me. I made my way through the fields - there was clover growing everywhere.
Then I stopped walking.
I realised I was standing in the midst of a huge patch of clover. I crouched down and looked closer at the leaves. I was just about to get up and go when I noticed one leaf was growing taller than all the others. It was a 4 leaf clover!
I picked it and returned to my tent.
Wow! 'A 4 leaf clover for someone like me?' I thought.
I showed it to the lady who was staying nearby in her camper-van. She also had never seen a 4 leaf clover in real life. We were both astonished and delighted.
The next morning I was walking towards the campsite kitchen when a spirit voice said to walk the other way round. So I set off in the opposite direction and soon I was at my favourite field. Again I called to the Spirit of the Clover to join me because those pink flowers were so pretty. I wandered through the field enjoying all the plants and flowers and trees.
And then I stopped walking.
I discovered that I was again standing in the midst of a huge patch of clover. The field was full of them. I crouched down again. I found and picked FOUR 4 leaf clovers.
I was stunned.
The girl who had known she would never see a single real 4 leaf clover because she was so unlucky had just picked four of them! I rushed back to my tent to store my treasure and then went on to the kitchen.
That afternoon I was coming back from the kitchen when a spirit voice spoke again. It told me to walk the other way back to my tent so I set off down the lane. Then I climbed over a gate and was back at my favourite field. There were so many long grasses and wild flowers growing there that it was like a meadow. And there were a lot of clover patches everywhere.
As I began to walk I felt a strong male presence with me. He was on my left side and was only as tall as my knees. And he was very happy. I didn't hear anything but I was suddenly roaring with laughter. There was something funny going on but I had no idea what it was!
As I walked round that meadow field with my happy little male friend, I had a strange thought. 'I wonder if there is such a thing as a 5 leaf clover?'
And then I stopped walking.
Again I was standing in the midst of a huge patch of clover. I had a plastic carrier bag with me because I had been on my way back from doing my dishes in the kitchen. Now the bag was very helpful.
As I crouched down and inspected the leaves growing there I discovered there really were 5 leaf clovers! I picked them and put them in my plastic bag.. In my right hand I held the 4 leaf clovers...
I counted the 4 leaf clovers as I picked them. They were growing tall so it made it easy to hold the stems.
The short male spirit was still by my side. He asked me, "Have you got enough yet?" and I replied, "NO!" and kept picking. He asked me that same question four times. And four times I gave him the same reply. I kept on picking and counting my 4 leaf clovers.
Eventually I stopped picking them because I couldn't hold any more in my right hand. I returned to my tent and discovered the lady was in her camper-van. I walked up to her with my posy of 4 leaf clovers.
"Look!" I said. "I have just picked THIRTY SIX 4 leaf clovers!"
She turned pale. I thought she would faint from the shock of it. "Would you like one?" She said yes. One fell on to the floor of her van so I gave her that one too!
And then I returned to my tent with my new treasure. I ate some of them because I thought that might put the good luck inside me. They just tasted like grass! And then I pressed all the 4 and 5 leaf clovers between the pages of a heavy book...
A few weeks later I picked some more fresh 4 leaf clovers and took them into Glastonbury. I had them laminated! They have travelled with me everywhere around the world since then. Over time they have browned and even begun to disintegrate as the plastic gets bent.
I don't know if you have ever picked a 4 leaf clover for yourself?
Now you know somebody who picked FORTY 4 leaf clovers in one day.
Maybe you think I am making up this whole story?
So I have some proof for you.
Just in case you want some good luck in your life today, I am attaching a photo of that laminate as it looks today. They say 'Seeing is believing.'
May this photograph bring good luck to you today and every day of your life.
Sometimes the universe is determined to get its message to you.
Clearly my Angels and Guides really wanted me to know that I WAS someone who deserved good luck and good things - and they made sure to show me in an unforgettable way!!!
