I just love it when “coincidences” or synchronicities happen! (FYI–There are NO coincidences.)
I have a new Taos friend, and 1-2 minutes after saying to a co-worker that if I won the lottery my dream would be to use the millions to open a huge animal sanctuary…my Taos friend emails me saying that if he ever won the lottery, his dream would be to open an animal sanctuary! Now, that’s not a hugely common dream. Sadly, neither of us won the huge PowerBall jackpot last night…sniff…sniff. There’s always next time!
Another less dramatic coincidence regarding purpose happened this morning.
We psychics are used to getting asked by clients, “What’s my purpose? Why am I here?” And, quite frankly, I’ve been asking that of myself for a long time. We all tend to assume that our purpose is some grandiose thing…and for some people (Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Oprah, etc.) their purpose IS huge. But, I had a conversation within the past couple of days about how not everyone’s purpose is some major thing. Sometimes, our purpose is lots of small things…small interactions throughout the day with other people where you (without even realizing it) say or do something that positively affects another person and maybe…changes his/her life. You don’t always know what a stranger is going through, and your comment of, “I love your hair!” may uplift the person for the rest of the day. I’ve had brief conversations with strangers, where I knew I’d never see the person again, that have been powerful. The chats seemed random, but I know that nothing is random. I’ve been thinking about how most of us probably don’t have glamorous purposes. Most of us won’t find the cure for ALS or become a famous Grammy winning rock star. But, there are people who will do that. That just so happens to be their soul’s charted purpose. I’m suspecting my purpose is many little things.
As I drove into work this a.m. in a silly mood, I immediately said to the guard, “Good morning good looking!” to which he laughed and said, “You have to be the friendliest person I’ve ever met.” That was a lovely thing to say to me. He made my day…and I may have made his day. (By the way, most people driving into work are much more glum…so he gets lots more gruff comments and attitudes than fun ones.) The woman in a car ahead of me at a Taco Bell drive-thru years ago who paid for my lunch and waved made a difference that day. If I recall correctly, I spent the rest of the day in a really good mood, which affected others because joy is infectious. So, look for small opportunities to make a difference. You CAN change the world…one little bit at a time.
