“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness.
The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities.
And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.” ― Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles -(Affiliate link)
Your average person who is beginning to learn about and be interested in “Personal Development” are actually being called into service.
Service for what?
In service to the universe, to yourself, and to everyone else.
If that sounds a bit wacky, read on. You might be surprised at how very commonplace this is.
As you begin to change your perspective on who you are and what you’re really doing here, you’ll notice that the world suddenly opens up to you.
You find things that look like coincidence all around you.
Coincidences happen for a reason
You may find the right book at the right time, overhear a conversation that seems meant for you, find yourself saying the one thing to someone else that you really needed to know – and noticing that you said it.
You’ll see number sequences over and over, and notice them.
You may be stuck in traffic and think to yourself that you’d really like to hear your favorite band to help pass the time, and they come on next.
You’ll be reading a blog and notice that someone posted something in the comments that answers your question or links to an article they wrote that is just what you have wondered about.
You’ll think of someone and they call or email you a second later.
You’ll meet someone who you’ve met before, perhaps a colleague where you’ve worked before in two other places over the years appears yet again working at the office where you’re currently interviewing.
Multiple people will recommend the same thing to you in a short space of time.
An animal appears somewhere they don’t normally belong, or at the wrong time of year, and it’s just off-center enough that you notice it.
You’re thinking of something and your child pipes up from the backseat with the answer, even though you weren’t actually talking about it.
You dream a strange dream and wake up to remember suddenly that you’ve had that dream before.
You start to go to the checkout line and suddenly remember you’ve forgotten the milk.
You have an epiphany out of the blue and realize upon reflection that there were a number of disparate events that happened that week that actually pointed you in the direction of that conclusion.
A little voice in your head that doesn’t sound like your own thoughts tells you to “Watch out” and you narrowly avoid an accident.
You are shopping for yourself and unexpectedly come across the exact perfect thing, on sale, for someone’s birthday that you suddenly realize is coming up next month.
A commenter on your blog thanks you for pointing something out and you realize you hadn’t intended to make that connection.
You have the sudden desire to sit down and write something, even though you hadn’t intended to do any writing that day.
You have an impulse to read your horoscope and it addresses the problem that you’ve had on your mind.
Other people are telling you to take a job that just doesn’t feel right to you and you can’t pinpoint why, and then you read an article on listening to your intuition.
You have a creative idea and see a butterfly fly past your window.
You might think to yourself,”What a coincidence!” There are no coincidences. None. Everything in connection, in sequence, in repetition is meant to happen. Everything. This is your intuition at work.
That creative inspiration? You were meant to have it.
That impulse to try something new? Inspired.
That desire to do something, anything else? A whisper in your ear, compelling you to go on.
That answer that came at the right time? A divine whisper.
Who is helping you?
Well, you are, in a round about way.
Your Higher Self, your spiritual team, your guides and angels, your friends and loved ones as divine messengers.
They are all here, agreed in advance by you, to help you at the right time and place to send you on your planned path.
You do the same for them, unknowingly, all the time.
You contracted for this even before you were born.
At this point, some of you are feeling chills.
Others are hearing in their mind,”I knew it!”
Some of you just got a flash of a picture of the thing that has tried to reach you.
Some of you started writing things down.
The rest are acknowledging that they “just knew” it was true.
You’ve just met one or more of The Four Clairs: clairaudience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, or clairsentience.
Except a couple of people who got a phone call and left and will shut the page down later.
Or went to the bathroom.
Or got bored after the first sentence and clicked on something else.
Why? Because this was not the message they needed to hear at this time.
If you’ve gotten this far and none of those things have happened, you are at the beginning of starting on the spiritual path.
Don’t believe me? Test me.
The next time you find yourself thinking,”What a coincidence!”, stop. Think,”What would it mean if this WASN’T a coincidence?”
Your understanding of the universe and your place in it will shift completely. Then you will believe me.
Everyone is a bit psychic or intuitive (same thing).
Everyone can improve their life and get closer toward their calling or “life purpose” by acting on their intuition, learning over time to trust it, and expanding their world.
Everyone has a spiritual team by their side all the time, from birth to death. The signs, symbols and synchronicities or “coincidences” you experience are you in conversation with your spiritual team.
