“Whether we name divine presence synchronicity, serendipity, or graced moment matters little. What matters is the reality that our hearts have been understood. Nothing is as real as a healthy dose of magic which restores our spirits."
Serendipity. . . intuition . . . vibes . . . coincidence . . . magic . . . miracles . . . synchronicity . . . grace . . .
These are all part of our everyday life if we only allow ourselves to be open to the experiences. Many of us grew up programming ourselves to ignore our ability to see these magical messages we were receiving.
How many times have you been thinking of someone and the phone rings and it is them?
Have you ever had the overwhelming knowledge that you would not be safe if you chose a certain path and then, in fact, found your "feeling" had kept you safe?
Do you pass moments of serendipity and synchronicity off as coincidence?
Sonia Choquette, a renowned author and articulate speaker with many years of studying people's natural psychic ability insists that being "psychic" isn't as woo-woo as many people have historically thought it was.
Having abilities that label you gifted in this area come largely from your very heightened ability of acute observation. A person that has great ability to observe everything going on in their surroundings and the nuances others bring to discussions or relationships are able to see and interpret observations on a different level than the casual observer.
Sonia insists these skills can be nurtured in ourselves and in our children and we will be rewarded with a heightened ability to follow the path to our own greater good if we accept that we have these innate abilities rather than ignore them.
I heard Sonia speak and she recommended keeping a journal of all the coincidences and moments of intuition and serendipity that you experience. Don't just pass it off when you press the elevator button and go stand in front of the elevator that just happens to open twenty seconds later. Acknowledge that as your intuition being accurate.
When the phone rings and you "know"who it is and you are right, take note of that instead of passing it off as coincidence.
Notice those small moments of coincidence and certainly start giving more attention to those more momentous times your intuition steers the you in a meaningful direction.
As you collect these experiences, you will begin to recognize and believe that we all have a capability to see and sense much, much more than meets the eye.
Teach your children and yourself to trust their "uh-oh" feeling; nine times out of ten that feeling will keep you safe. An excellent book: The Gift of Fear by Gavin DeBecker does a great job articulating this concept. TRUST YOUR GUT.
Let yourself be open to the messages you get by having people and opportunities put before you that come seemingly out of nowhere. They are there for a reason.
Trust in yourself to follow that dream that your heart has been telling you to pursue.
Stop the negative self-talk and LISTEN.
Your inner voice is made of a universal voice (i.e. chi, spirit, God, love, those gone before us . . .) and the culmination of the collective knowledge you have gathered that is unique to you; the more we fight that voice, the more conflicted we feel.
Trust yourself, follow your heart and be open when opportunity presents itself.
The gifts are there for the taking~ not to be ignored.
