Your synchroncity of the day

OK - here's one JUST FOR FUN!

We all love synchronicity. It comes in all sorts of ways. Sometimes it's life changing; at other times it's the universe having a good old laugh; and then there's the gorgeous synchronicity where it feels like the cosmos is giving you a big etheric hug.

Whatever it is please do feel free to share your 'synchronicity of the day' here below...

Comments

This is so awesome! I love moments like that and really am just happy to see it happen for others too!

I did have one of those moments today as well of synchronicity! I've been a bit down and disheartened lately in trying to figure some things out. So I thought to finish a painting I've been working on and listen to some music on you-tube while doing that.

Well one thing led to another and instead of my music I heard this video start playing that was exactly what I needed to hear today. It reminded me to just be me, be strong and just let whatever be just be! It was a video from Infinite Waters about what mentally strong people do not do. It said to me, I am strong and I got this :)

btw, you came to my mind the other day as well when I was trying to come up with a new kind of treat for my family. I think you helped me create a new dessert! A thin slice of cucumber, with a slice of strawberry on top of that and a mint/strawberry puree drizzled over the top. I haven't tried it yet, but cant wait to do so!

Thanks for starting this thread on synchronicities of the day! It has happened to me more often that I felt like posting a special synchronicity, but then I didn't always know where to post it, so great that there is now this space to share.

One of the ways that I get synchronicities is with the words of songs spiking out to me. Today I was amazed when the same song popped up twice on an online radio channel, with the words 'no more oxygen to breathe' jumping out at me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtuUfhwK8W4
'My ship is out of sight, all alone, this is the real me, with a blinding burning star, to keep me company'
There is something about this song that resonates with me, though I wouldn't be able to put words to it....

Much love,

Marije

Ahh yes, I love this thread - great idea *OK*

The question is: what does synchronicity show us?

When we were in Florida last year running a Breakthrough workshop, a guy at the hire car company was trying to get me to upgrade the compact that we'd booked to a mustang. Although it felt wasteful, I was sorely tempted - why? Because at the time, I felt like revving some real energy under the Openhand 'bonnet'. And it touched a primal power deep inside. The car seemed to be a great reflection of that. And although I turned the offer down, from that moment during the trip, I was seeing bright red mustangs literally everywhere!

So, on this trip when I found myself in Hawaii on a layover, and hired another small compact car, you should have seen my mouth drop when, unknown to me, they'd switched the compact for..... you guessed it...... a bright red mustang!!!

You should have seen me in the carpark as I realised, yes, that's the car they'd given me - I literally fell about laughing.

Although a part of me was resistant, I did take the car, I figured it was a gift from the universe, that reflected new primal, and powerful, energies that wanted to come through. But the funny thing was, that on the island, despite all the power under the bonnet, you couldn't drive at more than 55mph. And in Honolulu where I first stayed, often not more than 25mph. So here I am, with this massive engine under the bonnet, rumbling and ready to roar, able to speed at 160mph, and yet pootling around the side streets in first gear. So many times I just would have loved to have let rip!

And another funny experience was with judgment. The only place to get good vegan food where I was staying, was at the Hari Krishna temple nearby, where they served a great buffet at lunch time. Can you imagine rocking up to this incredibly spiritual, humble and compassionate temple, in a throbbing bright red mustang?! I can tell you I did get some funny looks, but to their credit, they did handle it well :-)

What I did take from the experience was the sense of power that goes with being in the cosmic self. But you do have to pick the time and place to unleash it!

Many times it brought this song to mind, sung in all its wonderful primal and soulful power...

Get with those vibes!

Open *OK*

So, here I am in Avalon. I have been here for a couple of days now and a few synchronicities have occurred. I would like to share one which is, in a way, unfolding.

When I arrived to Glasto the thought arose 'how lovely it would have been to connect with Trinity if she was here and not in Finland'.

Then I read Trinitys post that she is actually in Avalon and not away. I thought cool, a sign? I left it and today as I was checking things out at the local health food shop I happened to come across both of Trinity's cookbooks on one of the selves (one of the books I proudly own :). Well, another sign?

So, Trinity, let's see! I'm going to be around till Monday late afternoon, so if you are available and feel like it, wanna meet? ....

Much love xx

I was grocery shopping with my partner yesterday in a supermarket since we're hosting Easter dinner for family. As we were passing the fish counter, my partner said, "Look at that crab trying to escape the tank!" It was quite astounding. The crab had reached up and grabbed the top of the tank with its claw and was close to scurrying over it. Then it lost its footing and fell to the bottom. But just as quickly, it headed for the top again.

I stood in the aisle transfixed and was startled when the crab looked sideways at me with one eye. We made a telepathic connection. I felt its anguish and its deep yearning to be free to such an extent that I wanted to just stand there and weep under all those ugly, fluorescent lights as the shoppers jostled by.

That crab reflected perfectly how I was feeling. The rest of his buddies had settled apathetically on the bottom of the tank, resigned to their fate. But not this tenacious crab! "Keep going," he seemed to say through the glass. "Because one day we're both going to bust out of these cages. Free at last." Just what I needed to hear since I was feeling discouraged, weary, and out of fire. Such welcomed synchronicity. Thank you, Universe.

So here's a song for my badass friend, the crab, and for all the badass rebels out there.

"I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going
To keep me down!"

https://youtu.be/2H5uWRjFsGc

BTW, Open, Mustang Sally! One of my absolute faves. A big yes to primal, soulful power and to revving up that Mustang on a speedway one day at the right time and in the right place ha! :)

Hi folks,

I'm loving the thread, lovely to read and share our magical stories. Thanks Trinity for initiating it. Here’s one of mine that comes to mind...

Since returning to Edinburgh I had been feeling the desire to find a home in a more rural location, yet within easy access to the city. I went to visit a flat in a village called Polton Mill, while it affirmed my desire to be closer to nature, it didn't feel like quite the right spot... so a couple of days later after a dance class I connected with a friend who happened to be at the dancing class too, she had her dog with her and so invited me to join them for a walk. When she inquired as to where I am living, I told her I had been to see a place in Lasswade though it wasn't quite right (but, it wasn't Lasswade, the location I had visited was a couple of villages further out)!

She then tells me that she is living in Lasswade and potentially looking for a flatmate… When I went to visit her there, the directions stated that it was the third road on the left, as I walked towards my destination, I looked into the houses on the third right admiringly and felt they would make a wonderful home and yes you probably guessed it - this is where she lived on the right side and not the left...

And so I am now settling in to my new home in Lasswade, discovering delightful river and glen walks. This morning a deer and I exchanged a greeting and the bird song here is awesome, including owls hooting at night. I’m loving spending time with the dog, she’s even slept on my bed. I feel ever so blessed and grateful.

I’m very much looking forward to visiting Glastonbury for Trinity’s Empath course next week, sorry to have missed you Aspasia, I look forward to seeing you in June instead or who knows where :) Open, I love the Mustang story – fantastic! Cathy - how heartbreakding for the poor crab :(

With love from my full and grateful heart,

Fiona

Hi Fiona,

Yes, it was a completely heartbreaking exchange with the crab. There's a deeper meaning for me, as well, with this synchronicity that has been percolating within. I eat mostly vegan and have eliminated meat with the exception of fish, which I eat occasionally as I continue to let go of food cravings and addictions, adjust to socializing with friends and family who are meat eaters, and rise to the physical challenges of more intensive food preparation and cooking than I am used to.

The best way to help free our marine friends is not to eat them! That resolute crab, freedom fighter that he is, would not be imprisoned in a small, cramped fish tank if no-one wanted to eat him. Our telepathic exchange has fired up my resolve to progress with compassionate eating and to live in peace and harmony with all sentient life, surrendering to what is, accepting that I am doing the best that I can.

Lovely to hear about your new home! Beannachd Dia dhuit. Blessings of God be with you.

x Cathy

Hi Cathy,

It sounds like a rich exploration and a powerful exchange between you and the crab!

Thanks for the good wishes, love the bit of gaelic in there :)

Go mbeadh sonas i do chroí (may there be wellbeing in your heart)

Le grá, Fiona

I was taking maths class for a student today and while she was doing a problem i was analyzing the next one because i wanted to look like i know what i'm doing. I guess that's kind of expected. My attention was drawn towards a newspaper this lady was reading on my right side . On the front page were written with big words "Don't overSoch it !" Soch meaning think in hindi. The universe can be a bit funny at times. That was a cue for me to stop preparing all the time, to put the shield down and get vulnerable. Sometimes i get this idea of how deeper this stuff goes and i find myself thinking how's that ever possible. Now i find on my left side is a ladder. I always take ladder as sign of ascending. Good ,atleast i'm taking that step! While i was pondering this stuff a crow landed directly in front of me which is unlikely inside a classroom. I take it to be my shadow side. Mirrors on all side. Fantastic!

I love all of your sharings and looking forward for more. :)

Vimal

Fiona, what a profound and lovely synchronicity - may I say very inspiring because I am also looking for a place to live (not full-on yet but exploring!) - thanks for sharing! And I do look forward to seeing you in June. And you too Trinity.

Cathy, love this! "The best way to help free our marine friends is not to eat them!" Powerful! And with gratitude - three bows.

Wynde, I like ‘Infinite Waters’ (by Ralph Smart) youtube video productions, the guy has a warm way about him in sharing his experiences. Great synchro!

Vimal, wow! that's a grand synchronicity of mirrors! And so inquisitive.

Open, engaging sharing and fab song. Often, the historical facts behind songs are very interesting, so I found out and quoting “According to music historian Tom Shannon the song started as a joke when singer Della Reese wanted a new Ford Mustang. Rice called the early version "Mustang Mama" but changed the title after Aretha Franklin suggested "Mustang Sally". Well, well.

Marye, love the song!! Great to dance to! It is now part of my collection. I am always searching for great tunes – thanks for sharing! And I love the description of the band on their fb page: “Napkey is a subaquatic, outer space and desertic journey.” Wow!

And my freewheeling in Avalon ended earlier today…so briefly a few happenings:
*Bumped into a couple of familiar faces that I connected with in the New Year
*Connected with a couple of new people who I met on the street by chance – one of them took me to a live band psychedelic music party! Oh no no no, not my thing.
*Being challenged (well, irritated!) by the pervasiveness of the ‘healing’ and ‘healer’ themes that totally disempowers those who apparently ‘need healing’
*Sang more Hare Krishna songs – great vibe and beauty!
*Got lots of tips about how to ‘survive’ Glasto’s dark energies and break through the 6-month threshold
*Overhearing people talking about Mindfulness and joining in
*Saw someone driving my car (ha ha!) as I was exploring the town streets
*A day of Silent meditation in Chalice Well meeting room – bliss!
*People smiling a lot on the streets – very friendly
*Slept with a cat in a yurt, fed the birds and the lovely robin who is resident – apparently – at the White Spring and shed tears of sadness for the lambs and the cows on sight

Till next time for some more – almost - freewheeling.

Much love people xx

Hi Everyone ,
I got a very interesting flow of deep synchronicities that happened 2 weeks ago . Sometimes , i feel i might get a bit too late to an appointment that is important . That day . i left home a bit too late - but as i was heading towards Antwerpen ,i knew i could use the open speed ways in the best ways to close the gap of the delay . At that time , as well , i didnt know ( even intuitively ) that the car's engine was in need of Oil . I had just changed it back in December on my way back from The UK . That aspect of neglect for not checking the oil more regularly nearly cost me the gearbox . So , on my way to Antwerpen , i seriously went up to 95 MPH for the whole 50 miles to be as close as possible to aligned time i need to be . This rarely happens , if not never at all . On my close arrival to the Town , i slowed down the car to 50 MPH - to take time to relax and breath in / out fully and let go of the pressure i did put myself in . I can surely laugh at it now , it was close to a comic movie scene of the Marx Bothers .
But , as i slow down the speed , i hear a very unwelcoming & unpleasant noise coming from the gearbox - a noise that signals something is going wrong here . My heart rate started to go up + some sweat was coming down my fore head . The thoughts " Oh Noooo " appeared in my mind ..... yet , i didnt settle for the drama , not this time around when mechanics start to crumble down . I know it' s a Mercury retrograde phase and that implies some electronics or mechanics mismatch to appear in the quantum soup landscape . I remind myself as well that its always for a learning or a lesson , not about fixing the problem .
Further down the road , as i entered town , i had already been honoring as best as i could some sense of worries , stress , tightnesses and " projections on the near future " . The lower mind's responses can't bring me down this time as i am the Witness of it all . I than let Ray2 high sensitivity / acceptance to guide the way to handle a car with a tightened gearbox and Myself within it . This intuitive move allowed me to drive gently stuck in 3d / 4th gears until i could park it , where i was supposed to go . I went to the appointment with the best Inner version of Myself so i can deal gently with it . When i returned back , the gearbox was very tight to move the gears - so i worked a little on it and was able to go back home . On my way back, on the dashboard , this little red dot lighted itself up to indicate a lack of Oil . My penny suddenly dropped !!! How can i have not checked the Oil before ?? even if it didnt make total sense ....i felt angry at myself somehow even if everything seemed to be perfectly interrelated to deliver a BIGGER Message . Indeed , i am able right now to manifest incredible opportunities to shine many gifts in different sectors since February 2017 . There is a Bigger force at work inside - which feels unlimited and incredibly adaptable and very creative . Bang on , thats the message i can finally pick up now -and all sorts of emotional bursts had already softened due to the Self-realization point . Something else was attracting my attention : The gearbox still works but not like before . I filled in some New Oil and it feels like it can drive for a while longer ...the 1st and 6th make horrible noise when i engage them - but i finally felt intuitively how to use them now ( its been 2 weeks now ) with soft attentiveness and more care .
It didnt stop my willingness to inquire about the prices of second hand cars / and ask the Universe : ' Please show me how this needs to unfold " i will follow with surrendered acceptance . And if this car should brake down soon , how would i be able to go work ( yoga Classes , painting works , garden cleanings , English courses ) did i also ask Myself ? Well , i have no real clue yet and it doesn't matter . It feels like there has been a little Miracle taking shape and i dont need to figure it out completely for now . I feel so happy to be able to read the signs , the deeper meaning , working with the inner feelings and letting the Message land in the heart . It didnt take my inner smile off , Oh No .The last time i checked my e-mails , all my latest clients are fully satisfied from how they felt with My Presence & the quality services i provided . Riding the Souls waves and activating the right Rays to be working together is hard to describe but so fulfilling & uplifting . The day after the incident , i went along with some duties and allowed a space to express some of the pending emotional charges - it allowed a full clearing and felt at Peace with Myself again.
Thank you all for your sharings , i enjoyed them so much .
Open , i see New Mustangs all over the place too .... and often i feel like " I would love to drive one of these with the Big V8 under the bonnet " - That engine reflects so much of what i am living right now .
Big Hugs of Love ,
Jean

Hi All! Just popping in to share a little magic today!

This morning, the day unexpectedly opened up space I had not anticipated having - Thank you!!

Instantly, I found myself heading out the door for walk - how good it felt to feel the sun, the breeze, to see all the blooming spring flowers, butterflies and birds bopping around in the neighborhood. I came to a place in the back of the neighborhood that backs up to a preserve where there are clearly marked No Trespassing signs...which somehow have stopped me from actually going exploring in there in the past...a simple sign!! Today I unmistakeably felt to go explore as there was a clear path into the woods cut out by the masses of deer that inhabit the area.

At first there was some hesitation around the snakes that might be in the tall grassy entranceway to the woods - but I cautiously kept going in. I could not believe what I found when I got beyond the grass (the place that stirred my fear) - pure magic...sunlight beaming through tall trees, birds everywhere and just a crystal clear vibe of harmony. Going deeper I looked to the left and saw a massive arcing tree with 10 wooden steps attached to it...I felt sad about the nails in the tree but also clearly invited to step up...I only made it to the 3rd step with my feet...with my head up above the fifth...apprehension kicked in as one of my kids was at home sick by himself and I was already up fairly high in the tree. Funny as a kid I use to climb way way up to the tippy top of the trees but then couldn't find my way down...my mother would have to come out and bring a ladder - lots of scraped up tummies as I nervously scraped my way down.

As I left the woods, I felt so grateful for finding this whole new space just on the edges of my existing one...what a gift! Just as I emerged from the woods a solid black cat dashed in front of me across the road - as if it was closing a portal as I stepped out...that's really the sense I got as crazy as that may sound. Walking home I saw a green anole (type of lizard) - not commonly seen and the only ones native to the area...they are seemingly where they belong. I felt that about the space I entered in the woods.

So so much for me to see in this ...the space and energy that exists right here, right now at the edges of the more boxed in, predictable, routine one...as I was approaching my house, i picked up a branch with two blue olive looking pods on it...like an invitation I felt...an olive branch extended to inhabit more of that space, by ascending and descending the tree of life...scraped up tummies and all...lots coming up about trusting support and primarily being that support for myself - in it all, lovingly allowing what needs to arise.

thanks for the space to share!

With love,
Jen

Seems Universe is getting pretty loud in what it's trying to tell me. Or maybe I'm just listening better?

So I'm on my way home last night, walking from the train station to my place. My thoughts drift, over the sunshine, the river, the hills covered in woods, that piece of rubbish lying not three feet from a rubbish bin (I stop, pick it up, and deposit it where it belongs), synchronicities and free-wheeling, how much I loved it at the New Year Retreat and how I haven't really done it since, and why not, I think I should.

My eyes flick to the left, to one of the ubiquitous election posters, and focus on one of the three words on it - machen. In English: do.

:D

It gets better, though. Because the poster says: "Wir machen Schule!" Schule machen is an idiomatic expression, used here to promise improving our schools. The English translation of the idiom is either to become the thing or to catch on.

Weeeeellll...

Hi everyone, just wanted to share a synchronicity. Yesterday, I was reading "I hope I screw this up" by Kyle Cease, and this quote touched me:

"This life is a playground, it's not a multiple-choice exam. You can't screw this up. Listen to your body, take the leaps that are scary and exciting and calling you from the depths of your soul, and watch how the world unfolds in front of you"

It reminded me of that trip abroad I had wanted to make but I would always give in to the fears and doubts that arose... It reminded me of the feeling of moving from uncertainty, and I realised how comfortably numb I had become in many ways. So it was time to do something abut it. I decided I wanted to burn my boats, so that I wouldn't give in to the fears again.

After that, I went online and immediately booked a course to teach English as a foreign language in Asia. I didn't know whether it was the right thing to do, the right course (there were so many of them), but I knew I wanted to get outside this comfortably numb situation... so I did.

Today, unexpectedly the confirmation came... A friend of mine wrote to me on facebook to ask me whether a phrase he wrote in his resume was correct! I didn't even get it at the begining until I wondered, out of so many people, why did he ask me? We have a mutual friend that is much better in English than I am... and then it hit me!!

It is amazing to experience this feeling again!
Best wishes to all,
Alexandros

Hi,

Great synchronisity Alexandros *good*

Here's another synchronisity I had that I felt to share - Last week, I made a last minute decision to attend a dance workshop. Three different things I had scheduled for the weekend had fallen away leaving me with a free weekend.

The workshop was relatively expensive, though it felt really right to go for it. An hour after I paid for it, a friend phoned me and asked me if I had found the money she had put in my bag the previous weekend as payment for some work I had done for her. I hadn't found the money until then and it was half the cost of the dance weekend. It felt like the Universe was affirming my decision to invest in a soulful time dancing. A beautiful gift!

The dance weekend was very powerful and insightful, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to dance and explore. I learn so much about my self and how I interact with the world through 5 rhythms and similar dance practises.

With love and a little boogie, Fiona :dance:

So I seem to draw people to me that are a bit in between worlds... And apparently mentally unstable. I was sitting outside a whole foods today drawing and having a cup of coffee when a woman rolls up on a electric chair from the grocery and starts up a conversation with me about drawing and then through conversation tells me she is homeless and gets very serious and says "don't fall asleep or they'll put you in jail" . It was a powerful message for me as I have been exploring things around what pain I am avoiding that keeps me from a deeper connection to soul family.... And exploring the ways I numb or got to sleep so that I can continue to live in a way that doesn't feel right. The other day I saw a foot doctor for the thorn that went into my right foot and two clearly placed signs said "save your 'sole'l and "change your life". I feel a wave building under me and am practicing my kickboxing as I walk so that I may have the courage to face whatever I feel. =)

Thanks for your sharing Jen. I resonate with what you're writing. Because I started this life fully awaken with crystal clarity at some points on the path I was hoping I'd go through an awakening, a major shift like many people describe but now I'm unsderstanding in my case all I need to do is to look deeper in those areas I take things so for granted and when I look closer what I find is that I'm following the voice of society not my own and when I go deeper I start to get nauseous, I've accepted things that are so far away from my truth especially with regards to accepting those aspects of the divine feminine that I've ostracized and with regards to the body and pleasure. I've also used my gift against me and over giving in places where I need to be firm and don't actually want to give anything at all. The extremes within me are so that I've got courage to do all this crazy stuff but then for things that really matter I dont know why the energy dissipates. Or rather I do know. I bought into the fear and I understand why because ti was so rampant because practically everyone I'd met had bought into it and at some point it became comfortable not to test it out. Still its hard and I can only face certain things with a fair amount of food.
It saddens me that Chester and Chris moved on. Its crazy to think that there are some people walking around thinking they are replaceable

Hi B - Thanks for sharing the ways in which you resonate with what I shared. I love the title of your post - how true that we accepted the jail we were offered and we break it down.

From what you share it sounds like expressing boundaries has been challenging - I totally get that and it has been a major part of my journey. I too have felt nauseous as I reflected on all that I had allowed when a huge screaming NO was erupting from within. What I feel now is both an acceptance of "where/how" I am with all the places I get stuck too- and also a fiery passionate will to let all that doesn't serve me burn in the deep cauldron within. =) I feel strongly that the Soul is guiding the journey and though I resist in places, I know the Universe will keep reflecting to me what is going on in me and I will get it and move through it.

I could be totally wrong here, but from your sharing I feel some sense of inner blame for where you have not listened to your Soul. I find it important to be honest with myself and take responsibility about what is going on within me, where I get stuck...and it's also so important to have compassion for myself - I may have accepted realities that were out of alignment - but they were exactly what I needed to create to realize I had aspects of myself lost in a particular dynamic. Maybe that resonates, maybe it doesn't but I felt to add it, so just let it fly by if it doesn't land with you =).

With love,
Jen

Hi Jen, thanks for your sharing. I love this part

"What I feel now is both an acceptance of "where/how" I am with all the places I get stuck too- and also a fiery passionate will to let all that doesn't serve me burn in the deep cauldron within. Smile I feel strongly that the Soul is guiding the journey and though I resist in places, I know the Universe will keep reflecting to me what is going on in me and I will get it and move through it."

I do have self-blame going on. I'm so clear that I know when soemthings about to happen and I've got a habbit of avoiding things but that just keeps me in the same place. Sometime to feel I need to focus with all my energy and sometimes i become a bit obsessive, scared they're going to fade away so easily again. Sometimes to feel things it feels like i need to walk through the fight and flight mode and walk right into the heart of things as theyre happening. Thanks for sharing about compassion because I've fallen for victim mentality in the past I don't find it straightforward how to be with those aspects of me that are a works in progress.
Love
Bianca

In reply to by B

Hello Bianca =)

Wow - so much of what you are sharing has been (and is) part of my journey too. You said "I don't find it straightforward how to be with those aspects of me that are a works in progress." In my experience I can either work to accept that this is how I am being now- all of it - the work in progess aspects etc or I can be in some sort of resistance to what is. I have found that working to accept that this is how it is now, this is how I feel now with all the sensations (including fight or flight), emotions and situations that I have drawn to me is key, From that place of acceptance, there is openness to feel it all, explore and express it and ways of being naturally arise from that place...it may be compassion for self, for other, it may be courage, persistence, or any of the qualities of Soul.

You said here "Sometimes to feel things it feels like i need to walk through the fight and flight mode and walk right into the heart of things as theyre happening. " Yes - I have found that going right into the heart of things is the way through as well. For me it's about total acceptance of the fight/flight that washes through me (which happens easily for me), yet not allowing it to limit or deter me from feeling and being who I am through it. Connecting to my breath and a sense of an anchor within me - a place where I feel me even as the phsyiology is going crazy is so key for me. Something I have been noticing lately as well is that at times the fight or flight in me kicks in so loudly that it swamps the underlying soft spot that is being triggered...what a big protection mechanism that is - so it's important for me to not get lost in managing the fight/flight and ignoring what uncomfortable feeling was arising before it took off running. Of course, not to discount that many of us have fight/flight in overdrive as sensitive souls in a overstimulated world. Trinity wrote an excellent article related to this...https://www.openhandweb.org/adrenal_burn_out_how_to_treat_naturally

It's great to connect with you Jen. Thanks for this info. I do lose myself sometimes in the fight or flight. I've also been noticing that my fight response is often masked as an aspect that is passionately trying to create a better world because it just cannot accept this one as it is, especially my deepest vulnerabilities. It was great to get some clarity on that one. I found it ironic that one of my darkest places where ive got most resistance is actually a part of me that is obsessed with being of service and its so closed down because I want to find my own way without the help of spirit

Whooah! What a day it's been! I was free-wheeling about town this morning,
paying attention, and was hit in my core with powerful signs and synchronicity.

First up in my travels was a colourful wall poster on a store shelf that read:

"Do what you love." So I decided to do just that by sharing here on the OH forum.

Second up in my travels was a doormat displayed outside a gift shop with a picture of two owls (twin flames), one on either side of these words:

"Hooo's There?"

I was contemplating that question as I headed to a beach bordered by large mansions with spectacular gardens on a hill overlooking the seaside. I heard a woman speaking angrily, so I glanced over and saw her scolding her dog, a black Labrador, who had apparently been running wild and free in her garden, but was now cowering before her. "YOU COME WHEN I CALL! DO YOU HEAR ME?" she commanded forcefully.

On hearing those words, a rush of images flooded through me from past lives. Images of a ruler who sat on a high and mighty throne, commanding obedience at whatever the cost. I instantly realized that I've attached to subtler threads of that conditioning which I've carried into this lifetime so I can cut them loose. I saw clearly that I expect others to do what I want and say, at times. As that realization dawned, I connected back to the question on the doormat, "Hooo's There?" I answered, "Part despot," as the lyrics from Coldplay's Viva La Vida began to swim through my head:

"I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own...

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know St Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world."

"Sweeping the streets I used to own." Yes, indeed, I sit on a much humbler throne nowadays. You can't get much humbler than a raised toilet seat, which I use to compensate for weakness in my right leg and upper body, symbolic of my guilt and sorrow for misusing my power and causing suffering to others in past lives. I have been conscious of the connection between my current physical disempowerment and guilt from past lives for several years now, but I didn't make the connection to how this karma plays out in certain behaviorisms. I feel an urgency around letting this distortion go, but in saying that, I'm aware of how demanding I can be of myself.

Last week, I saw a Great Blue Heron walking lightly in the water. I felt its presence as a message from divine benevolence to walk gently and patiently with myself and others. I'm connecting that message to today's reflections in the outer mirror. I can't command, control, and force letting go. I can only let go when I surrender and soften into all those twisted, gnarly, broken bits inside. As Open often reminds us, there's always a truth behind every distortion. I'm feeling the truth behind misusing power and authority is true empowerment of aligned soul sovereignty. I hear you, St. Peter.

Heyas all!
Thought to share one of my recent synchronicity moments. I've been more or less in contemplation regarding who I am, what I am, why I am etc and through this I asked a simple request. For the universe to show me more people like me.
Not only did I get the most beautiful answer, I also got to understand more about myself. Which is never a bad thing.
About two weeks ago I was getting ready to do some painting and I noticed outside my window a young woman had put down a blanket to sit upon and next to her was her cat companion. I live next to an extremely large park, so for someone to sit down outside my little apartment is a bit on the hmm side. I had just the day before decided to how shall I say - Unlock my little area to those that may need sanctuary. So I knew that she was there not only for a bit of respite but also nobody really enters my area without either needing help or me being willing to receive help/information. I gave it about an hour before I intuited the right time to go outside and speak with her.
I sat down as quietly and unobtrusive as I could on my patio and gave it a few more moments before she looked up to notice me. I have a tendency I guess to frighten people and I don't want to do that anymore LOL! They don't seem to see me coming and or I'm quite invisible and I do need to work more on being visible I suppose. As she looked up at me I just smile and said "Hello, are you new here?"
This just brought about an entire afternoon of awesome and much needed conversation! She said she was drawn to my area and needed a quiet place away from her home and that she was very empathic. She had just moved to Oregon, felt drawn here since she was a small child and it brought me alot of happiness inside to just say Welcome to Oregon :)
Throughout our conversation that day, not only did the squirrels come sit by me, but the ladybugs seemed to think I was there post to sit upon. The crows in the trees also thought to chime in an awful lot. I write this down here in telling at least someone else out there that WHOAH yeah, that did happen to me.. I'm still processing it. She did remark alot about it and I honestly was not sure what to make of it all, so I just let it happen. She said I know who you are.. You are Mother Nature. I just smiled, put my hands up in front of me and said no and ok yes.. I am so much more than that. I am an infinite being having a human experience and so too is she!
That afternoon was just extraordinary and later on that night I couldnt help but to just jump up in the air with my hands above my head and quietly just say YES that was a good moment!
Then the next week I was at a local store at the right time. I could feel the tension in the air as I walked toward the building with my husband. Even remarked that perhaps we should not go any further. Yet we continued on. Needless to say people were freaking out left and right in the area. My husband went into the store while I stayed outside with our dogs and I cannot state how extremely uncomfortable I felt. I just have to say Thank YOU for the information here on this site, for the teachings, for everything I have learned. Because if I had not learned some things, I might of been a serious cause to the effect of that moment. My old self, would of just stood up inside and said to everyone and everything around us to just sit the M..F.. down.. Just shhhhh'sh! My old self would of contained everything there and made it all more or less worse. There is a way to deal with things and then there is a way not to deal with things. There may have been a shooting there that day if I had not learned to just go inside myself, breathe, calm me so as to not make outward situations any worse by my own distress.
People came out of the store screaming and yelling at each other, an employee was threatening a patron. The patron was getting into there car threatening bodily damage upon the store employee and the entire world to me seemed to just slow down. In an instant I chose to just say quietly but firmly to the people to STOP, breathe, be calm, no more of this behaviour!!! It worked, they did stop, they looked at me like where did this person come from and I just raised my chin a bit more and stood my ground. Whew!!! The patron drove off spewing obscenities and the employee went back into the store only to come back out again and stand near me so they could just take a break. First words out of her mouth were.. I am an Empath. I just nodded and smiled.
What I told her that day is the same that I told the other woman the week before. It is a good idea when one is feeling extreme external distress to just stop, breath in for 7 seconds, hold for 7 seconds and let out the breathe for 7 seconds. While doing so, use your ears to just hear everything around you. Be in your own self and find your own inner calm.

Sooo, that's my story of a few moments of time. My husband is now looking a bit differently at me though and is asking me why people are now coming out of the woodwork and one of the first things they say to me is "I am an Empath."
Now I think I'll go on a journey of every where I go, every place I visit. I want to raise the vibrational frequency to happiness and joy. Because laughter is never a bad thing hmmm :)

I have a lovely synchronicity of the day to share with you.

It's festive season and I felt to take off for a couple of days in the Windswept Wilderness of Dartmoor in South West England - it's one of my most favourite places in the world. It's so unspoiled and natural, sitting atop of solid granite rock.

So last night when parking my little camper truck next to a favourite Tor, it was difficult to get the parking right. The guidance was  being very persistent - why so insistent I thought? But nevertheless, I manouvred the vehicle until the feeling of its position was just right.

This morning I found out why...

During the night, the clouds and the mist disappeared, it had snowed and the winds were whistling over and around my van, rocking it from side to side. And I noticed a tune was playing. It had a melody like wind chimes playing. I thought maybe I'd left the computer on or my mobile phone, or perhaps the ignition of the car was still on..... but no, nothing electronic.

Then it dawned on me - the tune was simply created by the wind blowing through and around the camper. But so tunefull was it, that I realised it could only have happened because of the exact alignment of the van in the wind. As the wind changed direction after an hour or so, the chimes stopped playing.

This was amazing - it felt like the moor was playing a tune for me. It melted my heart! heart

To me it signifies the importance of tuning into, and listening to, divine guidance. Sometimes to go here or there, to do it this way or that, may seem of no particular importance. But you have to be in the right place at the right time to pick up the gems of synchronicity. And it's these that can simply light up your life, taking it in a whole new creative direction.

The wind is back in my direction and it's singing to me again. Time to go. But do share your synchronicity of the day.

In loving support

Open yes

I have placed 2 guitars on stands in my living room, ready to sell on ebay.

I have always warned my family prior to sneezing as they can be quite earth shatteringly noisy.

It ticles me pink now as each time i sneeze the earth shattering vibration results in the guitar strings struming their own tune.heart music to my ears.

 

When I was a little girl, my mother and I visited her acquaintance, an older lady living in the neighborhood. The lady had a beautiful, large melon seashell displayed on the coffee table.  It was magnificent, so shiny and with orange marks. I found myself fascinated by it, trying to (to no avail) see the bottom of it, to find the beginning of the spiral. My mother told me: “if you put it against your ear and listen carefully, you’ll hear the sound of the ocean that resides within that seashell”. I had to use both hands to lift it up. As I brought it to my ear, I heard a clear and laud wooshing sound. That moment felt so magical…. my mother was right - an enchanted seashell contained the wholeness of the ocean!

Fast forward to today: this afternoon I kept feeling a longing to let go of all the things I’ve been carrying around… the expectations, the beliefs, you know, the usual suspects that like to linger and take our attention. I was resisting it, keeping myself busy with various activities. I was just a bit anxious about what was being asked of me and felt some fear around emptying my “vessel”, even for a moment. While looking through my night table drawer I found a lovely orange-white seashell, a miniature of the one I saw at the older lady’s house. I couldn’t recall where I got it. It made me pause. I thought: how lovely, if I empty myself I'll become like this little seashell. I will carry the sound of the whole ocean and perhaps even become the ocean. This idea felt really warm and beautiful to me at the time and it melted the fear of losing myself.

I lit two candles, sat down and allowed the emptying out process that I longed for so much. It felt important to get out of the way and just let things happen. Off went the expectations, the wants, the needs of how things should be, of how I should be feeling, the attachments to the close ones, attachments to those who hurt me... all this was just so unimportant and light. And it left, just like that, all of it, like a bunch of helium balloons. My own energy filled me up with such a joy, and I didn't need anything at all. Nothing! Now, I’m back to my "usual self" and some worries had returned, but that’s ok. The memory of becoming like the seashell makes me smile and I know I will allow it again soon.

Just thought I’d share this little moment here.

Namaste.

Margaret

 

Just wanted to quickly say, thank you Margaret for that wonderful sharing.  It really touched me and offered a lot of reflections to my own contemplations.  Much love,

Richard

 

 

Yes, thank you Margaret - what a beautiful and honest sharing. I can relate to this emptying out process and appreciate the beauty of the empty vessel and it's oceanic sound. Much love to you, Jen

Debs, your synchronicity made me smile and they way you shared it made me giggle - you have a great sense of humour. :)

Margaret, a very beautiful and powerful synchronicity/reflection like Rich and Jen said. It reminded me when I was also a child spending months by the sea in Crete and walking up and down the beach collecting shells and attempting to 'listen' to them all! The sense of presence and joy was unbelievable!

Synchronistically perhaps, I have been encountering the word/experience/idea of emptiness a lot lately. Inquiring about it, reflecting, reading about it, experiencing a sense of emptiness, particularly in meditation,  when pure stillness and awareness are present even for a little while.

You say: "The memory of becoming like a seashell makes me smile and I know I will allow it again soon". Thank you, what a great reminder that the gateway to emptiness is the allowing of it, making space for it to reemerge and even allowing it to reside on the background amidst the worries that may resurface!

Much love

 

Hello guys,

Thank you for reflecting back :-) There is something about the space and emptying the vessel... something so effortless and yet so incredibly empowering. It feels like shedding off the skin, allowing what's dead to fall off. I've been recently feeling the magnitude of the synthetic reality that I'm running my energy through, the artificial constructs (Jen, you mentioned that too in your recent post/comment to the rainbow serpent article). My energy just doesn't want to fuel it anymore.

I keep the seashell on my night table, I just like looking at it. 

Hugs heart

Margaret

 

Don't ya just love synchronicity? Doesn't it just light up your life Slightly Smiling

So here's my latest corker that happened just yesterday...

A favourite recent film of mine is Bladerunner 2045. Somehow it speaks strongly of working to unravel illusion and density in a transforming 'apocalyptic' world. One of my favourite, ironic scenes is where the old Bladerunner (the Harrison Ford character) meets the new Bladerunner (the Ryan Gosling character). The dialogue goes.... "I used to have your job once. I was good at it." To which the very cool reply... "Things were simpler then."

A few days later I was just hanging out meditating when I felt the Buddha come into my consciousness. The sense was.... "I used to have your job once." To which I inwardly replied... "things were simpler then!" We both laughed our proverbial socks off.

So this weekend an old Openhander came to visit me to hang out - Lesley Lord. I told her the joke about the Bladerunner and having a laugh with the Buddha. The lovely - priceless - synchronicity being, is that she'd brought with her a present for me, which was........... a laughing Buddha!!!

Do share your latest. I'd love to hear Slightly Smiling

 

Hi Open


I am not sure I can call this synchronicity or not. It's been years I am wishing to leave my country. Right now my husband and I both are trying to find the way out.

The first try was 2 years ago when we decided to go to Spain. Every single thing was ok except one mysterious thing, which did not let us to move in to Spain. Thinking to much on one subject somehow depressed me.

 

Everything has changed for me after one day I decided to get up and start something small for change. I started with my diet from there I found Openhand, connected to Aspasia and read and watch many resources that make me feel like I am back to my childhood feelings.

Our next try was Greece and we recently visited Athens; what a magical city I fell in love with it immediately. 

 

It is not easy to compare where is the safest place to live in. I told my husband let see what our souls feel this time and forget all the positive and negative aspects of living in this and that city.

 

We both had a feeling of much greater than we could explain why we want to stay here so much. We are still waiting for paper works and don’t know what is going to happen.

Few days before our flight I had a very wonderful dream about moon phases. I could see the moon in all its phases, magical feeling in my dream. I looked for the meaning: "If we see, MANY MOONS IN ALL THEIR PHASES at dawn, means that a new cycle or a new stage in our life, it is approaches.”

 

I started to search for the nearest full moon. It was on 31 Jan and called Blue Moon. We went to the Acropolis, found a nice place to sit down and listen to the music that by accident the title was: " East of the Full Moon".

Listening to this music, being in Athens and watching the most beautiful art in the sky I call it true dream.

Hi farzenah- it's a beautiful story - and yes, depicts well how synchronicity works and lights the journey. Maybe, for some reason Spain wasn't meant to be. The universe has its reasons.

The key to any change is to come from bigness. And if the path is unclear, do as you did - begin with small changes and watch the reflections - what new aspect of being wants to come through now? So how does the moon make you feel? - embody that and come from it.

When my soul yearned for a big life change over a year ago, I had no idea how that would shape or what steps to take. I simply asked... "show me! " from that moment,  I started seeing a particular rare vehicle everywhere. It was one with a landscape on the side. I asked "how does it make me feel? " - a sense of adventure is what came.  So I embodied that and my life changed for the positive in ways that I could not predict. Miracles and magic everywhere.

So i'd say look for the synchronicity to reflect a feeling that feels right - then embody that. Let your choices flow from there.

Open :)

I had recently changed my name on 'Openhand" from Leela to my given name Deborah.  I did this as i reflected I may be hiding my 'identity' and felt to be frank and open.

The name Leela originated (in my awareness at the time; two young boys?) from the cartoon Futurama; a trailer tent i owned back then had a round window which reminded me of the cartoon character hence she was so named.  The name and the identity of  the cartoon character (strong one eyed female)  has stayed with me through the years using it in various manner.

Today I was drawn to finish watching (at last) a Gaia video regarding Samadhi;

https://www.gaia.com/give?ch=br&token=cje47nnls00qy01medy4uhvd0&utm_campaign=freevideoshare&utm_medium=link&utm_source=m.facebook.com

@~17minutes into the video "" Awakening is not about getting rid of the mind or the matrix, on the contrary when your not identified with it then you can experience the play of life more fully enjoying the show.  In ancient teachings this was called the divine game of Leela; the game of playing in duality....then the video goes to a picture of the energy spiral of which recently has been repeating to me constantly.

So to update;  my spiritual path as now evolved from cartoon character substance to ancient teachings and can now feel thoroughly at home with my choice of pseudonym ; Leela?

 

 

I am sitting at a cafe having lunch, trying to recover from the most chaotic morning ever with my 1-year old son, who would not comply with anything on my agenda today. Whatever I tried to do, he was miserable with and showed this by screaming and protesting so loudly that it broke both my ears and my heart, over and over. I kept breaking to the point that neither tears nor emotions could be held back and eventually I found myself screaming in chorus with my son. As our screams blended more and more, the barriers between them suddenly faded away and I could no longer distinguish between who was the screamer and who was the “screamee”. You could say our screams were one. Our pain was one. Out of this feeling of mutual pain, as I continued to “torture” my son with things that had to be done,  a deep feeling of worthlessness arose. And with that the thought “I’m a horrible person for torturing this innocent human being”. I dove into this feeling and I was transported then and there to a different time, a different me, and a very painful acknowledgment of having tortured other people...

It’s amazing what a baby can bring out of you, isn’t it?

So back to the cafe. As I’m sitting here trying to breathe through this experience, a company car passes outside my window. It’s an airport taxi with the words “Door to Gate”. Under the words, a rainbow, a personal symbol of my spiritual journey. The message is clear to me: another door to the next gate or gateway has been opened.

A few moments later, I look up and there’s a rainbow flag waving at me from a balcony across the street. To top it off, another vehicle drives by. This time with the word “LOTUS” in big letters. 

For all of you, also going through rough shit at the moment, I’d like to share this metaphor of the lotus that I resonated with.

“Just as this sacred flower goes through so much before it blossoms, so does the human spirit before it can let go of the things that stand in the way of reaching enlightenment. Without going through the sometimes very difficult lessons of being human (the mud), a person would never be able to reach higher states of consciousness (the lotus).”

With all my heart,

Anastasia

 

Interesting how both yours Debs and Anastasia's synchronicities spoke to me in unique ways of ancient teachings and ongoing experiences...

Very much enjoyed the reflective synchronicity of Leela's evolution (your spiritual path Debs)! I had felt the word familiar somehow but couldnt figure out why & where till you posted this. Then I did a google search and found out that Leela is a Hindu Sanskrit name littered all over the Upanishads. So according to wikipedia:

Lila (Sanskrit: लीला, IAST līlā) or Leela can be loosely translated as the "divine play". The concept of Lila is common to both non-dualist and dualist philosophical schools, but has a markedly different significance in each. Within non-dualism, Lila is a way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of creative play by the divine absolute (Brahman).

Just awesome!

 

And Anastasia, what a beautiful synchronicity that brought to life the unique way of your experiencing the many symbolic meanings the Lotus has in Buddhist and other philosophies! The lotus has always spoken to me very deeply. There is this magical place, a quarry I discovered at the heart of Dartmoor (a vast Moorland in the South West England) with a large pond full of lotuses. Its the most amazing sight during the summer! Because of its significance energetically, I have heard that it was probably used for ceremonies and may therefore harbour 'dark energies'. What I feel when Im there though is a burst of light coming through from the density of the contained landscape. And when I meditate sitting on the rocks besides the pond looking at the flora and fauna expressing all around I feel a re-alignment into the purity of soul.

"No mud, no lotus" is one of my dearest and most cherished Buddhist proverbs and symbolic experiences. Indeed, "The lotus flower blooms most beautifully in the deepest mud".

Loved this!!:

Without going through the sometimes very difficult lessons of being human (the mud), a person would never be able to reach higher states of consciousness (the lotus).”

 

Wise Love

“Leela and the Lotus”.  

I love it! It sounds like the title of the most beautiful story of a little girl who grows up near a pond of lotuses. Whenever she is sad or needs solace she goes to the pond and interacts with the lotus flowers. She speaks to them and they speak to her. Sometimes they are visible, sometimes not, but she can always feel their presence even under the surface. The girl grows up and embarks on her own physical and spiritual journey, leaving the lotus pond as a distant memory securely embedded in her deepest layers of consciousness. 

Many years later, as an older woman, the river of life brings her back to her childhood home for old business that needs to be tended to. Painful visions of the past surface and she remembers the pond where she used to go when she needed her own space. She makes her way to the pond and as she sits by it, once again comforted by its beauty, a powerful memory emerges...

She had been particularly upset that day, when she ran to the pond, scraping her tiny legs against all the weed and thorns she couldn’t bother to avoid on her way. Desperately, she tried to find her own reflection in the water. Something to remind her that she was real. That she mattered. But the pond was particularly muddy that day, and despite all her efforts, not a single ripple of her face was found. She started crying, and as her tears dropped and melted into the water, one lotus flower in particular caught her attention. She looked at it while pooring all her heart’s intention into the face of the flower. She wept for a long time, until she finally reached the moment when there was no emotion left to be felt, no storm left to ride, no resistance left to break free from. Her heart became still. As she sat with herself, cradled by this stillness, the lotus opened its eyes and looked right at her.

 “Why are you crying, child?”, the flower asked. 

“Because I can’t see my reflection.”, the girl replied.

The lotus looked at her with gentle eyes and said 

“I am your reflection!”

At the time, the little girl did not understand the meaning of this message, but she found comfort in the gentleness of the flower’s voice.

As this memory softly embraced her mind, Leela closed her eyes and found herself bathing in the same stillness she had so many years ago. The flow of her journey made a full circle as it finally, with full force abandoned itself into the vast waters of recognition. The pond dissolved into the ocean and the mud melted away into the waves that were coming to take her home. Like an angel, the face of the lotus reappeared before her, smiled, and said with the same gentle voice,

“Now, do you understand?”

“Yes. Thank you.”

 

Haha! I didn’t intend for this to be this long, but I got carried away and had to embellish a little.

Thank you Leela and Aspasia for the images that took me on this beautiful trip. I love the surprises that synergy can bring! 

Love to you beautiful souls,

Anastasia

 

In reply to by Anastasia

Anastasia, what a beautifully felt and expressed story, I was right in it!! Heart Cant count the times I laid down by a tree and next to flowers - including lotuses by the Dartmoor pond - touching a deep sense of presence as it was reflected back to me. Thank you!

You mentioned Synergy and that really spiked for me! I can see and feel the interdependence that exists between the girl/people and the lotus/Nature on all levels (physical, mental, spiritual etc), which brings about the synergy of re-touching presence. And of course the powerful Synergy in co-creating together here through text, feeling, story, emotion, awareness and heart. Precious! A meditative inquiry indeed.  

With the sense of Synergy, I looked out of my window to the snowy landscape and thought how the butterfly-like snowflakes 'made' yesterday's snowstorm and then created the thick layer of snow on the Earth that today  - and later on - causes the rivers to flood and the sea to rise.  What an amazing example of impermanence and change! And inter-beingness. And uncertainty.

Synergies fuel inner and outer evolutionary processes. They open one to chaos, complexity, multiple causalities and interplays of conditions. As I look out of my window, I look at uncertainty, I face it, allowing myself to fly with uncertainty, so that I stay more present in the immediate experience, so that I am in solidarity with other souls, so that I feel freedom in allowing pain to arise and express, so that Right Action emerges, so that Im more open to remember my connection to the Source. All a divine play!

Wise Love and thank you Anastasia for another Synergy unfolding!!voltage emoji iconHeart

Agapiti Aspasia,

Uncertainty. Yes. Like your snow flake that is dropped from the clouds, falling slowly, moved unpredictably by the wind, not knowing where it will land. So, I too float around, in the space between worlds. Not knowing where I’m headed, only knowing I can never go back...

Sweet thoughts to you ❤️

Anastasia

Glikia Anastasia,

Beautiful words of solidarity Heart thank you.

The space between worlds, often an alone place - but not lonely - a space I come into...David Whyte, one of my favourite poets says in Sweet Darkness - touches me deeply tonight:

 

The dark will be your home
 tonight.

The night will give you a horizon
 further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
 The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
 except the one to which you belong.

 

With gratitude,

Aspasia

I'm currently running a 5GATEWAYS retreat in Halifax Nova Scotia and yesterday I took the group out on a six senses walk in nature. It's all about working through the senses to dissolve any sense of separation, any polarity. Then using the natural pull to guide to signs and synchronicity. One of the group literally found herself standing to a piece of a jigsaw! Clearly feeling fully through the senses was a critical piece!

Don't you just love it.

Open Heart

This post is such a great synchronicity because I have been exploring the 'Science of the Felt sense' of the Kairomancer - the one who reads and follows the signs and synchronicities of the Universe through the felt sense that includes heart and mind. Awesome!

'Synchronicity says' ...that the Kairomancer is a Greek word meaning Kairos (opportunity time, the right moment) and Mantis (soothsayer). Very interesting. Figuring out the relevance of the Greek element... ;)

I had a couple of interesting synchs the last 24 hours or so, 1) Been feeling and seen signs of a friend for a couple of weeks now who I haven't been in contact with for some time; her name on my phone would just pop up, on facebook, her name on cars and other external signs or she would just pop into my mind with an accompanying warm feeling. Well, yesterday I received a text and a phone call from her :) And 2) Been contemplating the venue for my new workshop and I had followed a couple of leads that did not go anywhere. Signs were not very clear. But I stayed with the feeling and attentiveness. Today I got an email from a lady client-friend who told me about a brilliant venue. Its very vibrant and in a beautiful village and free on the date I need it. Im checking it out today and having a lovely exploration up North in new territories with the sun shining bright. The Sun Emoji

Sending the blessings of a Kairomancer to all Kairomancers out there!

Lovely sharings!! This thread is a synchronicity, I was thinking yesterday of it and wondering where I would find it and it appears! 

I had travelled on Friday near the Artic Circle to a hot spring. I've been thinking of my Grandfather who has since passed on through. He had a very wise peaceful joyful energy which reminds me of an old Indian chief. We shared a very special connection. He loved ducks and I thought if I see a duck today I'll know the energy he was able to generate through his earthly vessel is alive here within me. Of course the thought followed that it would be quite ridiculous to see a duck today when there is still snow. I went about the day, enjoyed some deep meditations in the hot spring. As I was walking out, my attention was guided to four ducks walking toward me. Stopped me in my tracks and I felt such strong divine energy it felt electromagnetic. The air around me had a vibrational pulse that resounded though eons with a timelessness that I felt to melt into the air around me, through the roots of the trees, such at one-meant complete presence.. I stood in silence until one duck (it was a mallard which was my Grandfathers favorite) appeared to puff its chest out, spread its wings and starting flapping them. The vibrational sound of the feathers working in harmony filled the air with a power that paused time. I said to my companion, that was my Grandfather waving to me....

Hey Aspasia and Erica - great to have you tune in Thumbs Up Sign

You raise and essential point about synchronicity Aspasia - if the signs don't initially lead anywhere, then still "hold the inquiry" - we're still in dailogue with the Universe and it will always answer (yes, notice how I misspelt the word "dialogue" - I was about to rewrite to "dial", and of course realised it's about dialing into the Universe!).

LOvely (for some reason the "O" wanted to be big!

Open OK Hand Sign

I am beginning an advanced herbalism course today and after some meditation thought to pull an oracle card the inquiry to the Universe was: what is the overall message I need today for this step I am taking in my journey. The Card that was pulled:  FLOW  Wow- and amazing how loud and clear Universe can be in its subtlety or not so subtle.
