Lining â€˜Em Up

My guides had told me that Iâ€™d be in superproductive mode for about 6 weeks, and I am. I was told that some would be brand new ideas Â and others would be pots of gold Iâ€™d been sitting on, and they are. I was also told that all my projects would line up easily (their emphasis) this month and things would really fall into place.
And they are.
I finished Â another Â edit-and-format Â tonight, Â and Â the book will go Â to Â the printerâ€™s Â tomorrow Â after Iâ€™ve let it â€œfermentâ€ a little so I can taste it once more with a fresh palate. Thatâ€™s three books to the printerâ€™s in Â just Â over 2 weeks.
The Â next Â project Â is Â a Â revision Â that Â should Â work through rather quickly, followed by a workbook, though I reserve the right to trade out projects, depending on what comes up next and if I take a trip out of town, Iâ€™ll plan on doing some â€œfreshâ€ writing on my digital recorder. In the midst of this, it looks like Iâ€™ll be getting rights back to my first novel, from back in 1994. Finally.
I started an e-course today, too, that I bought through a special Â connection at a greatly Â reduced Â rate of about $69, which is about half-off. The stunner is that Iâ€™ve writ- ten far more material thatâ€™s far strongerâ€”and never made a penny off of it because Iâ€™ve given it away, damn my little Pisces heart. What I have already written, this material thatâ€™s needing only to be dusted off, is the equivalent to at least Â five or six courses Â of different Â varieties, Â different lengths, Â different Â audiences. Â These Â could Â easily (thereâ€™s that word again) be ready to sell Â by Â January, several of them. Not only that, but itâ€™ll be as close to hands-off as I can get it. All online, all by sequential auto-responderâ€” which means income while Iâ€™m still at my day job. This is a huge step Â toward manifesting Â my dream, not because itâ€™s the end result Â or Â exceedingly Â prosperous Â itself, Â but because itâ€™s a huge step into a new arena Iâ€™m not familiar with…and I like to know what Iâ€™m doing and be sure of it.
Then the most interesting little thing happened to as- sure me Â that Â things Â indeed Â are lining Â up.Â A couple Â of months ago, I came up with a great idea that ties in with my next launch, right down to a name for the website, the course, everything. I checked on the availability of the do- main name and found that it was taken by someone who was sitting on the domain, perhaps in hopes of selling it. It Â hadnâ€™t Â been Â touched Â in Â a Â while. Â There Â were Â other forms of the domain name but none had the same ring to them. I decided Iâ€™d have that domain name or none for this project but I didnâ€™t really do anything at the time be- cause I was busy with other projects.
I never tried to come up with a different name. Nothing else suited.
Yesterday, my guides said simply (as they often do), â€œGo look.â€ And they said it urgently.
So I checked the url I wanted and got something different from the last time I looked, which was a week or so ago. I thought Â it was an Â error, so I rushed Â over to check the domain availability. Â The ownership had lapsed and it had not been renewed.
So I snapped it up right away, Â knowing Â completely that it was meant to be more than just a sign and yet at the same time, realizing just how quickly things are lining up.
