Daily I am reminded of how magical life is. The other day I experienced what most of the world would consider coincidence, but what I have come to realize is simply using my tools.
Merriam-Webster lists one of the definitions of coincidence, in part, as: “the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection…” [my emphasis]
With all due respect to Merriam-Webster, it is no “accident,” and it does not “seem” to have a connection, it does have a connection.
A couple good friends had come back to town for a visit, and I knew it would be a few days before we could get together since they have family here. I had headed out to the market and got the urge to stop for lunch at a local restaurant, and the thought occurred to me that my friends may be there. I followed the urge and when I went in there were no tables available, so they took my name and the names of the three or four parties that had come in behind me. As I stood off to the side, three of the parties that had come in after me were called and seated. I was about to remind them that they had passed me over, when my friends came around the corner. They were indeed there having lunch with family, and if I had been seated first, I would very likely have missed them.
Quite a while ago I realized that every time I experienced a “coincidence” it was always proceeded by me thinking about the subject of the coincidence. I no longer call it coincidence, it is quite simply a case of expanded awareness, and manifestation. And the thing about it is, even those that are not on a path to expanded awareness, use these tools, but unconsciously. As I mentioned in my last post, Expanded awareness in everyday life once you step onto the path, a whole host of tools become available to you. Once you begin to use those tools consciously you start to experience magic in your life.
If you have not been paying attention to coincidences in your life, you may want to start. I think that in a short while you will, as I did, realize it is something entirely different; no accident.
Use the tools, they are yours, standard equipment for life on earth. If you need some information, take a deep breath, connect, and tell upstairs what you need. Do not worry about whether you have actually connected or not, as you will soon realize intent is the key. I also suggest you do not place limits on how that information should be delivered. In my experience, it is best to let upstairs decide. They always use the most efficient method. And remember to let go of the request, don’t keep checking in on it, thinking about it, or holding on to it. Be open and aware for as I have discovered, the answers can come from the most unexpected places. Go on with life and what you need will come to you. As always, keep i mind that an “attitude of gratitude creates a space for grace.”
