I woke up this morning knowing I needed to sleep in a good room with plenty of natural daylight, air conditioning and a balcony. Only room 104 would do.
I had asked yesterday about the room so I knew the occupant was checking out today. I also knew the hotel doesn't allow people to pre-book the room. They are allocated when you pay at reception.
Room 104 is the best single room here yet they are all the same price. I knew I must book early to get it but the cash was not yet in my bank.
What could I do?
To be truthful, anxiety was present although I knew it was not helping me to get the room.
So I prayed for help and I packed my stuff up. Something told me not to take my shower yet. Sure enough, 5 minutes later the cash had arrived in my bank account.
Downstairs at the check in desk things did not go quite according to plan.
The man at the desk told me that room 104 was already booked! Immediately in my head I said, "Angels help me please!" It was only 10.30am and check out is 12 noon, check in is 3pm.
I reminded him that the person was checking out today. Again in my head I asked the angels to help me.
"I promised the room to somebody else," he said.
"Have they paid already?"
"But you told me you cannot reserve a room for somebody before they pay. It is against the rules of this hotel."
"You want 104?"
"Yes. Do you want me to pay on my card?"
Finally he made the booking for me and took the payment from my debit card. I prefer to get cash from the ATM (bank machine) but I didn't trust him to keep my room for the 10 minutes it would take me to go get the cash!
So now it is 2pm and I am in room 104. It is one hour before official check in and I am in this room because I listened to my guidance and then I held focus on what I wanted. And I made sure to ask the Angels to help me too.
Today is definitely a Magic Monday!
I feel blessed.
