And Contact From The Spirit World
Did the above caption catch your
attention this month? Then it is "no coincidence." The
definition of synchronicity, according to Carl Jung, is a
meaningful coincidence of outer and inner events that are not
themselves causally connected. Serendipity is a word with
similar meaning. Serendipity is coincidence with purpose.
The gift of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for on
a conscious level, yet, somehow they manifest in our lives.
When people attend Reiki One and Two
classes I always remind them to watch their dreams after the
attunements as they will usually be more activated and with more
meaning. I also remind students to pay special attention to
the synchronistic moments and/or encounters they have during the
21 days after class. I remind students, however, that dreams
and synchronistic events are Always there and if we are vigilant
we can see it happen every day of our lives.
An example of this is when you don't know what summer book to read and one falls off
your office/library shelf one morning as you vacuum. It
happens to be a book that helps clarify some struggles you are
having. Or, a phone call or email comes from a friend you
have lost contact with for many years. While you converse
with your old friend you hear of an employment opportunity that
just "seems to fit" what you have been looking for in your life.
For whatever reason, I believe that this summer edition of
the newsletter needed to be devoted to this subject in the hopes
we call can pay more attention to what our Angelic Guides and
Spirit Guides are trying to manifest and help us with on a daily
Below are several stories and events that
were shared with me a few years ago. I have copied them
again for this newsletter.
"I have been in a sort of negative space
about work, and not really centering myself at all, which as you
know can be draining. Anyway, the other night I came home
from work and there was a book in my mail box sent by a publisher
in California with a note to enjoy the book. Well, the book
is a fable of sorts about a guy who is getting bogged down by
life's annoyances, and his negative view of his situation is
fueling his anger, confusion etc. He encounters an unlikely
teacher along his path including a talking Owl. The story is
a little childish, but still a really great reminder of what you
have always said,
"You Can Choose How You See This."
Also, I have been feeling Dads presence
and thinking of him a lot. With his anniversary coming up
Saturday I can't help but think he has something to do with this.
So, thankfully I've gotten some perspective, and I am back on
"When we lost our first pet, years ago,
Dutch, a Weimaraner, we were both devastated and missed him very
much. At times when he needed to go out and we could not go
with him, we would put him out on a run which was tied to the
house. When he was ready to come in, he would run up and
down the steps. He weighted about 80 pounds so we could hear
him well when he did that. During the first few weeks after
he passed on, several times we looked at each other as we heard
him coming up the steps. I got up more than once to check
out the steps thinking someone was at the door. Of course,
there was no one that could be seen."
The above two stories/emails were sent to
me after I relayed the following incident to these two friends of
a dog we had for many years.
Many of you met our dog Tickles who we
referred to as part border collie part angel. We were half
serious about this as she did seem to have a special, angelic
presence and energy to her. Tickles crossed over to Spirit
on May 30th at 4 p.m. which is the Numerical Numbers of Angels.
About two weeks later I was searching through my calling ID
looking for a student's phone number. I hadn't cleaned my
caller ID out for over a month. All of a sudden I noticed
that on May 30th at 4 p.m. there was a call from "Visiting Angels"
and a Candia NH phone number. Precisely the same time
Tickles had crossed to spirit. I called the phone
number to find out WHO this was. It turned out it is a woman
from a visiting nurse agency. However, she had no
recollection of calling our number and could not find anything in
her records why she would have called....let alone why she had
called on a Sunday and on Memorial Day weekend.
Coincidence...I don't think so.
Still not convinced. A famous
textbook example is when Carl Jung had a female patient who was
hysterical and in the midst of recovering her sanity by explaining
her dreams. The woman began to recount a dream, in which a
large beetle or scarab played a major role. At that very
moment, Jung was distracted by a scratching noise outside his
window and glanced to see its source. Outside of his
treatment room window, Jung and his patient stared in amazement as
a large beetle moved against the glass. His patient saw this
as a sign of recovery. To Jung, it was another clue to how
synchronicity may work.
So take this summer to look around you.
When unusual, or powerful events come about during any transitions
or every day life, stop and notice. Ask what lesson or
opportunity does this have for you.
There are a few events in September that
will provide opportunities for you to Meet Your Spirit Guides
