Synchronicity – A Signpost To The Right Path.
I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe that synchronicity happens for a reason. It’s a signpost from the Universe, letting us know that we are exactly where we are meant to be.
I’ve had a few really good synchronicities in the latter half of this year and it coincides with some much needed changes I had to make in my life. My finances have really taken a hit in recent years, mainly due to depression and reckless decisions made in grief after the loss of my Father.
I thought I was on to a winner and that things were going to turn around when I started working for two supposed Entrepreneurs – dedicating a lot of time, energy and effort into their falsely inflated business, for very little in return.
After twelve months of getting an inside look at their lies and false promises, and unfortunately ending up with an empty pocket – I realised that I had allowed myself to be used by people who knew my desperation to improve my financial situation and used it to their advantage.
When I finally woke up and walked away, everything shifted, and amazing synchronicities started to occur… And, most importantly, I learnt one very valuable lesson: don’t rely on anyone other than yourself to become successful!
Rather than feel despondent, I had deep faith that something much better would come along, and three weeks later it did. An online course, run by real Entrepreneurs who have actually reached the heights of great success. The course offered everything I was looking for: a tangible step-by-step process on everything I felt I was lacking in becoming successful.
I knew in my heart instantly that this was where I was meant to be, and the following week the Universe sent me a massive sign of confirmation.
My cousin, who I would say has always been my ‘spiritual’ guide, sent me a text message about a new business venture he was undertaking. And, low and behold, it was basically everything my new course was about. When I replied, I mentioned the course that I was undertaking, and guess what? He had just finished an almost identical course. I had goose bumps from head to toe, as did he. However, neither of us were particularly surprised – our lives have often been parallel.
Now that I had a new direction for the future, I needed some form of extra income to support myself in this venture, as well as work in with my current part-time Hairdressing business.
I reached back to my old trade of House Painting and managed to rustle up a few private jobs, but it wasn’t consistent week-in-week-out. I needed something part-time on a regular basis. I called a few painters and fronted up to different businesses with resume in hand, but no one had any work at the time.
A couple of months later, I still had one of the supposed entrepreneurs clinging on to being in my life, and I felt like this was a huge burden weighing me down. I needed to free myself from the toxicity, and when I finally did, I got a phone call the very next day from a female painter. She offered me the regular work I’d been looking for and was happy to be flexible with my hours, she also offered me a really good hourly rate – it was exactly what I was after! This synchronicity confirmed that cutting these people from my life was indeed the right decision.
I felt like my new part-time job (although going backwards to a past career) was exactly where I was meant to be, and of course, the Universe always sends a sign…
We were painting a house for a builder and his wife that my new boss regularly works for. My boss had been telling me about how lovely the builder’s wife was and when I met her, she seemed strangely familiar.
I decided to look her up on Facebook, hoping this would jolt my memory as to where I knew her from, and it did. I saw a photo and write up about her Grandma who had died seven years prior.
Seven years ago I worked in the funeral industry. It was myself and another female colleague who came to collect her Grandmother when she died. I remember this family so well because I felt a real connection with them.
They were a large family who were incredibly close, and my part in the Grandmother’s collection somehow felt special; the family must have thought so too because the next day they rang the office to rave about the “two angels” who collected their loved one the night before. The family also requested that we work on the funeral services. The family held a private service at the Crematorium and a separate public memorial service.
Management would only let me work on the private cremation service and I was furious that they were ignoring a specific request from the family (the families were just a number to management, but to me they were people in grief that I cared about). I sent a card with a colleague to give to the family at the service I was not allowed to work on.
Twelve months later the Grandfather passed away and the family requested I work on his funeral, but I was no longer employed there. A colleague was kind enough to pass on the message.
I had chills when I realised who the builder’s wife was. I told my boss the story, she was touched by it and rang the builder’s wife for me to speak to. I told her she seemed familiar and she said she felt the same thing but couldn’t put her finger on it. When I told her I used to work in the funeral industry, she knew who I was immediately.
She was just as excited as I was and told me that mine and my colleague’s presence that night was firmly etched in her and her family’s mind – our care and compassion truly meant something to them. We talked for quite a while and have decided to catch up for a drink sometime soon.
For me, this was another case of goose bumps – total awe and wonder at how the Universe divinely times things when we are exactly where we are meant to be.
Oh, and I nearly forgot one more amazing synchronicity. Although I’ve written my whole life, I’ve never really been interested in writing Fiction, I don’t even particularly read a lot of it.
A few weeks ago a friend sent me an article on performing a cord cutting ceremony to help me let go of energetic ties to a past love. That night as I performed the ceremony, my mind transported to a magical realm of ideas for a Fiction book.
The ideas gave me a strong knowing that this is the direction my writing must go in next. I started trying to think of my main character’s name, but it wouldn’t come. A couple of days later (on my birthday actually) another friend sent me a YouTube video (out of the blue) of this artist I have never heard of, and guess what? Yep, it’s exactly the name I was after for my main character. The song also ‘strangely’ relates to the genre (fantasy) of the book.
Once again, confirmation I am on the right track! The first half of this year was honestly one of the most challenging years I’ve ever faced, in relation to letting go of that which no longer serves me. But boy, is the second half of the year rewarding me!
All of the dead weight is gone, things are moving forward, and the synchronicities are flying through the door. I don’t know exactly where this is all going yet, but I do know, I’m exactly where I need to be. That much the Universe has confirmed loud and clear!
