Coincidence or Conspiracy?
Had an interesting synchronicity this morning, not that they aren’t frequent, and this one was really great. I’ve been challenged in my vulnerability lately. I know that to be present, available to experience the cool stuff the universe has to offer, I’ve got to be willing to recognize whatever I’m withholding and let it go.
Along with that, I have to be willing to convey my feelings and thoughts without bias or prejudice. Things change then, usually for the better. Synchronicity, or the awareness of the events, seems to empower a new living awareness of just how intention and response can work.
It just so happens that listening to a message bearer later, the universe chimes in again, conspiring, with a process that both echoed and edified what I’ve learned. This particular process began with Love, the unconditional type, aware of the moment and accepting it as it is – embracing it.
Then, blessing it for providing the opportunity to learn something followed by doing the right thing (in love and service) and lastly, offering a prayer of gratitude and continued growth.
What often happens is we find that our projections return to offer us reflection through others, not that they ‘make’ us feel anything or ‘do’ anything to us specifically, even though what happens is rather painful.
The ‘enemy,’ if there is one, is often within. We fail to recognize the universe smiling back at us and perceive it as a snarl instead. There is no enemy, only energy.
One of the things that seems to be most prevalent in the benefits my clients receive from our coaching sessions is an increased self-awareness. What does that really mean, though? The suggestion I offer is to simply become more aware of one’s surroundings, even the subtle sounds and seeming distractions.
Synchronicity is defined as, “the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.” It is the engagement of these experiences that often lead to breakthroughs. The focus of attention is broadened simply by applying the effort to observe.
