Surprise Guests

Yesterday and this morning I asked the Powers That Be if there was anyone else who needed to see and hear about the Penny Palace?  (Doc and I did a few house tours earlier this month).

When Doc and I arrived home around Noon today, there was a lady walking past the house.  Conversation with her led to she (along with her husband) coming to the Penny Palace next week.  Should be fun!

This evening around 6 p.m. there was a knock at the front door.  I was working on several projects and did NOT want to be interrupted.  I figured it was likely a package delivery.  I would retrieve the parcel and be back to work in a few moments.

I was wrong.  At the door was a young lady on a work/scholarship program.  I invited her to come inside to the Grand Room where we spent two hours talking about life, Nudgings, near death experiences, recovery from being in a coma, growing up in the inner city, and dozens of other topics.  

After the first hour, Doc was giving me those non-verbal questions from across the room.  “What is going on?  Who is this person?  What about dinner…?”  I gave him “The Look”  (Which means “Go away, don’t bug me, will explain later”.  LOL)

Crystal really liked the Thankfulness Tree and the doggies.  It appeared the Penny Palace and Angel Stories really touched her deeply.  YES, she needed to be here tonight.

Keep asking “how can I make a difference today?”

You just never know how your question will be answered ....

WOW!  It’s been six months since the last posting.  Time sure flies!

Some of you are on the Penny Tales List as well as this Tales from the Penny Palace Post.  You saw the land when it was bare (except for the weeds).  You saw the house day by day as it was being constructed.  You saw the move in and the House Blessing (May 2012), then the Open House Celebrations (Oct 2012).

It has now been 6.5 years that Doc, doggies and I have been living in the Penny Palace.  During that time, the COINcidence stories have touched many, many people.  The Penny Palace has hosted visitors from around the world.  Each of them has left their “imprint” on the energy field of the home.

In just this past week, the PP has hosted four different tours! Guests ranged in ages from 2-80+, came from numerous countries, were of various ethnicities, and represented very diverse occupations.


Right now the Penny Palace is the most beautiful it has ever been.  Sure wish you could be here and see if for yourself.  There are Fall decorations at the mailbox, driveway and leading to the front door.  Once inside, there are garlands trailing on the spiral staircase and upstairs railing.  Autumn decor peeks from every corner and complements the color scheme of the house.  The fireplace is inviting (despite the 80 degree temperatures last week). The Thankfulness Tree stands tall to remind us of all the things for which we should be grateful. 

This is truly a very special place.  THANK YOU for your part in it. 

Here are a few photos to help you feel as though you are here...

So Happy to See You.  Happy Tales!

Hope You Enjoyed Your Visit

Note:  To the active Penny Finders out there, this is Day #484 of consecutive Coin Finding.  Getting close to that 500 mark again!

In Abundance

This morning Doc and I went to several places – Starbucks, the grocery store, a gas station, a friend’s office, a walk through downtown Glendora, a restaurant and more.  Not a single coin was found.

At lunch the friend (D.O.) with whom we were dining playfully/sarcastically said “Tina just has to ask, and the Angels deliver coins for her”.  I thought that statement was a bit exaggerated.

Later this afternoon I needed to mail something at the local UPS store.  Tom, the owner is super nice and almost always asks me first thing, “how many coins have you found so far today?”  I KNEW he would ask today.  I could not say “Zero!”

There was a grocery store between where I parked and the UPS store.  I started talking to the Angels.  “Look. I just need ONE penny to show Tom when I walk in there.  Would you please consider providing one in the next 2-3 minutes?”

I walked a few feet into the grocery store and noticed a few coins in the change return slot of a vending machine.  I grabbed the coins and continued walking.  “THANK YOU ANGELS”. That will do!

I kept my hand closed until I reached the UPS store where Tom and I could be surprised together.  Let’s see…  There are 11 pennies, 3 nickels, 9 dimes, and 5 quarters.  That makes 28 coins, for $2.41.  And there are THREE Hits for the Cycle in that pile!

The Angels delivered – in Abundance!


ASK and It Shall be Given Unto You.

Chicken Soup

This evening I attended an Energy and Breath session at the nearby Salt Oasis.  During the session while in deep relaxation, my thoughts wandered to Chicken Soup?!?!?!  The thought kept coming back: “Wouldn’t some chicken soup be good tonight?”

Yesterday a neighbor had mentioned how tasty the chicken soup was at a local café, so I considered trying it.  After class I looked at my watch and realized it was after 9 p.m. so the café would be closed.  Rats!

I drove home figuring perhaps I would open a can of soup.  I walked through the door and the first thing Doc said to me was:  “Are you hungry?  Son Stevie will be here any minute with some homemade chicken soup!”  No way!  Seriously?

Stevie appeared within minutes.  He said his wife had made chicken soup earlier this evening.  Steve began putting the soup away, but was “nudged” instead to call Doc and I to see if we wanted it!

Would you call that Manifesting?  Coincidence?  Answer to Prayer?  Or just very loud thinking?

In the Flow

Tonight we had a few hours with a family here at the Penny Palace.  As they departed, my heart was doing happy somersaults.  I stood in the driveway thinking "THIS is why the Penny Palace was built.  It is a tool to teach and to inspire".   

What do YOU have which can inspire or lift up other people?  Perhaps a talent, an object, a way of thinking or merely your smile?

Louis had been our rep at our bank for the past few years.  We really got along well with him.  Last year Louis left the bank.  He and his wife took “a leap of faith” to pursue their heart-led desire to develop Sweet Dough Cafe.  It has been quite a roller coaster ride and a few weeks ago things were looking pretty bleak.  Plus, Louis and Kiesha have four boys and recently adopted two little girls.  Pretty scary point in their lives and their situation seemed overwhelming.

Tonight L&K along with their two older boys came to visit the Penny Palace.  In every room and around every corner of the Penny Palace are symbols of “miracles”.  This place houses hundreds of examples of manifesting.  Hopefully hearing the stories gave the family new energy to keep moving toward their dreams.

To those of you who went through the building of the Penny Palace, you already KNOW the “COINcidences” which brought it to reality.  To any new readers, you can read the day-by-day stories on the Penny Tales blog.

May the Penny Palace continue to inspire each of YOU to move forward in achieving YOUR heart’s desires.

Incoming Update:  On the way home Louis and family stopped for a yogurt.  While enjoying their treats, a gentleman approached them asking for help. 
We destroyed the car looking for change to give...I was bummed and apologized to the man because we had no change for him. I asked him if he would like something to eat. He chose a chicken burrito and beverage.  I drove to Taco Bell, but the drive through line was too long so I decided to go inside.  I ordered the man’s meal and when I was about to fill up his cup of cola there were two brand new shiny Pennies on the counter!” 

Was this COINcidence?  Or were the Penny Angels literally offering their 2¢ worth in saying “Job Well Done”

To quote a verse from Matthew: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
