Now, before I begin this story, IF any of you think there really, and I mean really, is no-thing “odd” happening right now, all you have to do is to take a peak, a tiny one, into my life and SEE that something is most definitely up. I see a Moon that looks like is going through Mitosis. I am seeing birds here that are not supposed to be here. And nesting, mind you! I am seeing my cats’ eyes turning turquoise. And I am seeing roses growing and blooming that at this time of year are scheduled to be dying back. Hmmmm……
From the first time I went to connect the charger, the connection did not feel secure, and in fact, felt down right loose. Over time, that charger (male end) actually would fall out of the component on the keyboard (female end) where the charger would be inserted. I had to position the keyboard just so, in order for that charger not to fall out.
This happened month after month after month.
And my keyboard charged.
One day recently, I plugged in by accident, my backup charger to the keyboard, that was not connected to anything. I went to use my keyboard and it was dead. Completely. So, I attempted to plug the charger back in, and over the course of that day, no-thing happened. My keyboard remained dead.
Now……..let me tell you. A writer without a keyboard puts that writer into freak mode. Yep. I sure did freak. Climbed the walls. Pulled my hair out. I was on a roll here! It is like you are riding a Stallion at full gallop and suddenly that Stallion stops, and refuses to move. The rhythm is completely lost. Or, how about taking all the paintbrushes away from a painter in the middle of a Masterpiece. Well, now you know, in a way, how I felt.
Instead of accepting what was happening, which I didn’t, I freaked. And that is when I decided to go to a local store here that sold keyboards so that I could get a new one. I took my iPad to that store and was confident that I would have a new keyboard that day. In fact, I bought one, took it home, charged it, and went to use it, and NO-THING. My settings kept telling me that keyboard was not connected. And no-thing I did, would connect it. Do you hear me screaming???
Back I went to the store and I dealt with the manager who was confident he would get my keyboard working. Nope. Natta. He then tried 3 more keyboards and none would work, NONE! Welcome to the world of APPLE! Since I downloaded their last operating system, I have since found out, that chips were deliberately put into this system so that one could not use any products that were not Apple. Nice. Never again shall I purchase an Apple product, just on principal alone!
And then the surprise of all surprises. The manager looked into where the charger is inserted and told me “Well, this is your problem. You have nothing to connect to!” I looked and my teeth fell out of my head. My connector port was empty, void of anything that my charger could connect to.
AND MY KEYBOARD WAS CHARGING FOR MONTHS WITH MY CHARGER CONNECTING TO EMPTY AIR. Look closely at the picture of the charger. It has tiny pins in it that are intended to plug into something. Then look closely at my keyboard charging port and you will see that there are no pins receptors, and in fact, there is no-thing but an empty hole. Oops, I have the photos reversed. Gee, what else can go wrong? NOT going there! So what if you first see the charger port, then the charger. So what?
And, the bite marks in my cable connecting to my laptop, is a cherished gift I have from Tigger, one of my boys who I recently sent to the Rainbow Bridge. At the time he chewed this, I was upset, and thank GOD he did not get hurt! Now? My Heart goes into my throat when I see these bite marks. Tigger…..GOD how I Loved him when he was with me!
Come on. Really? Yes, really! The only explanation I have, I don’t have an explanation. I believed so fully, I had every faith that my keyboard would be charged each day, And lo and behold, it charged. Fully. At least to my knowledge it charged fully. On Faith alone? On Frame of Mind only? How can this BE????
Let me give you a little time to digest what I just said…….I was charging a keyboard with a charger that was connecting to absolutely nothing. NO-THING.
Have you gotten over that fact yet? Cause I haven’t!
Now for the good news. Zagg is replacing my keyboard free of charge because it is under the one year warranty. It is arriving tomorrow. I am going to get on my knees and just kiss this baby for being so happy to have my keyboard back. And YES, I have the company’s word that a ZAGG keyboard will work with Apple’s ios7.02 operating system. Is ZAGG connected with Apple and is this why their keyboard will connect with my iPad? I don’t know. All I do know, I will have a keyboard tomorrow.
By the way…..IAM typing this on my dinosaur of a laptop, but that is mean, so I say my lovely laptop that is allowing me to get this story out. If it were not for my laptop, you would not be reading this! GRIN
How do I tie in all this to Higher Thinking? Ah, now that is the tricky part to all this. But, I have a few ideas.
When something happens and you seem to have NO control over it, do not pull the reigns and try to control it. (like I did) Go with the Flow and know somehow, this was meant to be. I still don’t have the understanding of all this, but here I go, winging it by saying, some Higher Good is coming out of this, or will.
Also, know with the Wisdom within, what YOU can do to help change a situation that is out of Flow with you. I took action and as a direct result, I now have a brand new keyboard on its way to me! YES! But, I made that happen. ME!
I did have time to “stop” to see an area of my life that needs adjusting. And I adjusted. That is good. (smile)
And I think the biggest lesson that comes to mind, IF we can stay in the Mind of Faith and KNOW KNOW KNOW that something is happening, that very thing will happen. I had NO idea that my charger was not connecting to anything, yet my keyboard kept charging. How did this happen? IAM beginning to think it was my MIND that did this, my frame of Mind, my space of where I was. There was no doubt in my Mind that anything was wrong, and yes, even when the plug would not stay in, and I had to keep adjusting the keyboard in order for the charger to stay in the outlet, or it would fall out, I still insisted all was OK.
Only when I found the keyboard dead after plugging in the backup charger, only then, did I realize something was not right.
How can we stay in this Space where all unfolds effortlessly and seemingly miraculously? How do we stay there? I did for months! Months! And then having my sissy fit over not having a keyboard, well, I fell off the horse. The horse not only stopped, but I fell off.
Hindsight…….Here IAM writing all kinds of advice, and I broke my own advice. I got upset. I freaked. Let me be an example that no matter what happens, stay High. And have Faith that all will work out. And how do we connect (IAM using that word deliberately) to the Cosmic All and have miracles happen right before our very eyes? It happened with me, that is until it was time for me to write this article. A-HA! That’s it! If that keyboard had kept charging, this story wouldn’t have been created.
So there you go! My keyboard decided to show me and you that learning how to get into the Magic Flow of this Energy and have NO doubts, that things we did not think possible shall happen. Shall we all think about this??? IAM talking about a Way of BEing, a Frame of Mind, and staying there, without “thought” of how. Just by BEing.
In my opinion, we haven’t seen anything yet. Things have only just begun to get “interesting”.
