I don't believe there is such a thing as coincidence. When we delve deeper coincidences give us clues that steer us toward our own north star. If we investigate and listen they will guide us to create the life we crave. All we have to do ask the universe for guidance and wait for the magic to happen. The key is to be observant and be willing to suspend the logical brain's reasoning to brush it off as "just a coincidence".
I dig it. When I started paying attention and observing this in my own life, I can say for sure it has been happening a lot more often.
I had quite a doozy recently I would like to share. It started out small and when I didn't listen it got big!
I'll start off by mentioning I set up some signs and symbols with the universe last year. The intention was to ask a question and if the answer was yes to show me a car with one headlight in my rear view mirror within 24 hours. I don't even remember what happened at the time and I completely forgot about the whole thing.
Fast forward to last month.
We got hit with a snowstorm that was a little worse than expected. I was heading to work in the early hours of the morning and the roads were not yet plowed. I drive about a mile from my neighborhood to the road that leads to the highway. It's scary under these conditions. There wasn't any traffic so I was taking my time. Suddenly, a large SUV approached in my rear view mirror and I noticed it only had one headlight. It tailed me until we got to the light where we went our separate ways.
About 20 minutes later I had not made it very far and determined the road conditions were just too bad and getting worse by the minute so I decided to head back home. By the time I hit that same road it was getting light out, but lo and behold another car was driving directly behind me with one headlight. I thought it was weird because you don't see that very often, let alone twice in the same hour right behind you. It was a different car too, not an SUV.
The next day, on a different road, the same thing happened. A car with one headlight came up directly behind me.
At this point I started to take notice. What is up? This seems a little coincidental.
Okay, something is up. Universe what are you trying to tell me? What is the message here? Then I remembered the yes/no intention setting from last year so I decided to ask a question. I have had something on my mind for a while that I have not been able to decide. So I put it out there, should I or shouldn't I? If I see another car with one headlight directly behind me in the next day then I should.
Of course I won't see one, what are the odds?
The very next day, I turned onto the same road and sure enough a VW bug came up behind me with one headlight. Later that day, on different road, the same thing, a different car. WTF????
I still kept telling myself it is just a coincidence! My logical reasoning had all kinds of explanations for it.
I did not act on my question. I did nothing.
Then last week I had "the big doozy".
Last Wednesday, the universe wanted me to listen. It happened 6 times. SIX TIMES. SIX DIFFERENT CARS. All in one day.
On my commute to work it happened 3 times. On 3 different occasions as I looked in my rear view mirror the car directly behind me only had one headlight. These cars were each directly behind me on a crowded commute. Not in a different lane, not coming toward me, I didn't move to get in front of them and I am absolutely certain they were different cars. I wasn't thinking about it at all, I would just glance in the rear view mirror and there it would be. The first 2 times I didn't really even pay attention but by the 3rd time I was like "what is up??"
Then on my commute home it happened twice. I couldn't believe it, that was 5 times in one day. Seriously weird. But then I had to run to the store 2 miles away and on my drive back home it happened again! I was only in my car 4 times that day. I think the universe was driving the point home.
All I could do was laugh and say okay, it's a yes. Thank you!!!!
So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Weird, yes. True, yes!
Tell me about your strange coincidences, I would love to hear them!
Oh, and for you listening pleasure, here is One Headlight by The Wallflowers. Nothing related except I like the song. When I looked for the link I discovered it was released on the the same day this all happened to me (Feb 24th - 22 years ago). Coincidence?
