Have You Ever Dismissed A Coincidence As Nothing?

“When you look for and are thankful for the amazing and meaningful coincidences in your life they show up more and more.”

This was a Facebook status I posted a few days ago. It was less than a week after deciding to re-read The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield.

I first read this book way back in 1995. While I remembered the most salient points I felt strongly it was time to re-visit it. Then a friend told me she had just bought herself a copy…

Just A Coincidence?

It’s a wonderful book relating a spiritual and personal development philosophy through a modern-day parable. (Don’t be tempted to watch the film, you’ll be missing so much.) The very first chapter is about people noticing the meaningful coincidences in their lives.

Co-incidentally (or not) I had the most amazing week of coincidences from the moment I picked it up again.

Not only that but other things happened as well. Would they have happened anyway? Or was my awareness, gratitude and focus on the abundance in my life pulling these things towards me?

I don’t know, but I do know I was truly grateful for each one: A new training opportunity, two free passes to a spa, a nasty (potentially expensive) situation untangling itself easily and seemingly overnight,  and more.

Every day I reflect on what happens, and look back in love and gratitude for the events and people in my daily life. It only takes a few minutes at the end of each day to look back, acknowledge and be grateful in this way. I look for the love, the kindness, a meaningful coincidence, a fated meeting, even a chance occurrence.

And there it is, you see the magic unfold, you notice the moments of coincidence that have occurred. You begin to see the patterns in the everyday that help to confirm you’re on the right path, and in flow with the universe.

I love it when this happens.

And eventually, with regular practice of this you notice each coincidence, each moment of love and magic as they happen. They act like signposts to your day. It’s as though they guide you to speak to a certain person, or take a certain decision. This is when you are truly connected.

Be aware though that this comes with practice and regard for yourself. It is a conscious awareness, not just a resignation or a handing over of personal responsibility. You need to put the groundwork in in order to:

  • get to know yourself,
  • learn to keep your energy levels high
  • and your stress levels low,
  • and to live your life more purposefully and in a state of awareness.

Then the magic can flow through your life easily.

I would highly recommend reading the Celestine Prophecy, or re-reading it. And if the magic is already working for you, this won’t be the first time you’ve had this thought come to you. A coincidence or two may have already occurred to lead you to this point right now.

bright blessings
