Last week, yours truly got to spin the famous “Wheel of Fortune” for a chance to solve puzzles and win prizes. While I can’t reveal my show’s outcome before its air date (Tuesday, Sept. 18), here’s what I can share: It was a blast! And, it’s also a reaffirmation that the Universe continues to place experiences and connections in my path that are aligned with my intentions.
Some of you may have read an earlier post (Where There’s A Wheel, There’s A Way – April Archives), where I discussed the audition process. It all started last September when I received an intuitive vision of the famous “Wheel.” A few weeks later, a Facebook friend told me of the show’s mass auditions (which attracted thousands) scheduled prior to Thanksgiving in the Palm Springs area. Months passed, and in April, I was invited to Round Two auditions (I later learned that of the 16,000 who make it to that juncture, only 600 are selected to be contestants!). In May, a letter in my mailbox confirmed that I made the cut and that taping would resume in July (my episode will be the second of “Wheel’s” 30th season!). Pretty amazing how that initial vision continued to gain momentum, as long as I took confident (but not cocky) action.
So, last Thursday morning when I entered Sony Studios, my day’s expectations extended beyond buying vowels and filling in the blanks. I intended to soak up every aspect to truly appreciate the opportunity. Backstage, a wide demographic of contestants (the show has enormous appeal) bonded and created an infectious energy. Staff members reviewed guidelines, offered encouragement and kept everything on a timely track, since six shows were being taped that day. Just before 1 p.m., I received final dabs of makeup (oh, yes, the whole star treatment!) prior to being ushered to the elaborate set where I’d spin away!
Seconds before the cameras started rolling, I stood over one of the most famous props in game show history and silently acknowledged the distance I’d traveled in my spiritual journey. If someone had told me five years ago that I’d be positioned across a soundstage from Vanna White and shaking hands with Pat Sajak, the notion would’ve been discounted. Now, I know that literally nothing’s impossible. Not matter how surreal.
I mean, sur-wheel!
Love and light,
