I’ll preface this piece by pointing out that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. I don’t see every shooting star as an omen nor every coincidence as anything more than a coincidence. But that doesn’t stop me from taking note of events that jump out due to the timing or some other characteristic that makes them unique and statistically – if not paranormally – significant. Just such a thing happened to me today and as it followed on to a recent event of note, I thought that instead of posting as a reply to the comment, I’d put the article here.
For people who wish to experience more synchronistic events in their lives…keep track of them. The more you observe them, the more you will see them in your life. I also suggest thanking whatever energy you connect with (God, angels, etc) for the gift.
I woke in the middle of the night and, unable to sleep, my mind began to wander over some of my work. I wasn’t sure if I should leave the writing as it is or delete it. This bothered me to the point I was going to get up at 3 am and delete it.
I decided that if I did get up and get on the computer, I’d never get back to sleep. Besides, if it still bothered me when I woke up, I could always delete it then.
Still unable to sleep a half hour later, I asked the angel I work with on my writing for help. I said, “I don’t know what to do.”
I fell asleep about twenty minutes later.
I woke up feeling groggy and in serious need of espresso. Typically, I wait to check my email until after I get back from a coffee run. For some reason, I checked the email before. There was a message stating that someone had left a comment on one of my articles.
An article about the paranormal synchronicity I’d recently observed.
The author wrote: I think the Universe does not want us to second guess ones self. Yet we do…. I like visions….. they’re better than a newspaper!
Well, I certainly got my answer. Leave the writing as is and stop second guessing myself. I thanked God and the angel and head for the coffee shop.
Part Deux! The woman making the coffee is usually in the kitchen so I took a moment to chat with her. She said, “I was thinking about you…about your writing…it takes a lot of work and you have to have a passion…”
Thinking about my lack of sleep I said, “And being used to sleepless nights.”
She smiled and said, “You’re doing everything right.”
I’m sure my smile was frozen on my face though I think I mumbled a thank you.
As I walked back to the car I mentally said, “Message definitely received God, and thank you!”
I cherish such events and share them because they happen every day around the world to numerous people – reminding us that we aren’t alone…on our own.
- Something inspired MaryAnne to post the comment when she did.
- I elected to read it before leaving for the coffee shop – or before deleting the writing which I very well might have.
- The woman making the espresso is normally in the kitchen. She decided to make the coffee and she decided to tell me what was on her mind which was relevant.
It was what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it.
You never know when you might be that messenger for someone else.
Look for the synchronicities in your life…it’s worth the effort.
