When we need to hear a message in order to transform into our best selves, that message will come from anywhere & everywhere. For example, if you need to learn about patience, “patience” will be the topic of your minister’s sermon, the subject of your favorite tv morning show, the title of a book you “just happen” to see at the bookstore, & the focus of an article in a magazine you pick up at the dentist’s office.
Synchronicity, in this case, means everything is aligning to make sure you learn what you need to learn. And here’s the bad news… if you don’t learn it, you’re destined to repeat similar experiences with increasing intensity until you do. You say things like, “Why does this always happen to me?”, “Why do I keep dating the same kind of guy?”, or “Why do I keep finding myself in this situation?” There’s a reason. It’s up to you to figure out what that reason is, take advantage of your raised awareness, & make a different choice that can change the course of your life.
“Control what you can; let go of the rest” is my lesson to learn apparently. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that message lately. Now that I’m conscious of it, I have to honor whatever mysterious force is at work in my life & strive every day to learn from it & grow.
If you are noticing the same message being communicated to you through song lyrics, bumper stickers, or other unusual sources, pay attention. Ask yourself, “Is someone trying to tell me something?”, the answer is “YES!” Are you listening? I am 🙂
