Definition of synchronicity
the coincidental occurrence of events and especially psychic events (such as similar thoughts in widely separated persons or a mental image of an unexpected event before it happens) that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality —used especially in the psychology of C. G. Jung
On Sunday December 10th, I had a very well thought out plan for how my life would develop and the type of healing work that I was going to do. Having just moved to two different states within the USA in 6 months, it made sense to take my time and allow things to develop slowly. I was just starting to feel at home in my new town and having two young children was demanding. I liked having my quiet private sessions that didn't require having a public face. I felt great about this easy and smooth plan and launching a biz reaching a wider audience could nicely wait 12 months. No rush! As I always do before going to bed, I prayed for guidance and clear signs.
Two days later, on Tuesday December 12th, I woke up with the name of my business Guadalupe Healing Arts and was determined to build and launch my website. I designed it in 3 hours, registered my business, got insurance, went to the Notary to get a bureaucratic paper signed (who gave me advice on how to start a biz) and filed the appropriate paperwork in the town I live in. I spent close to $1,000 (a lot for me) just to get the business launched. Didn't question it, just did it. I sent the website to a small group of friends to get their feedback. And I collapsed into bed with my kids.
Wednesday December 13th, I tweaked the website some more and finished the paperwork. Found a gorgeous studio to do my classes and started advertising the classes. I also took care of the house, the meals and the children.
On Thursday December 14th, I receive an email from a spiritual-focused company that emails a lot so I hardly open their emails. The subject was nothing special about a VIDEO recording but I opened it and read: "Did you join to celebrate Santa Lucia-Virgen de Guadalupe Day (also King Arthur’s birthday!), earlier this week?" Intrigued, I googled "Virgen de Guadalupe Day" and....December 12th - two days ago! The day I was taken over by this strange force to do something my mind would completely disagree with if I let it have a chance to opine.
Elated with this universal affirmation that I was in the right path, I took the kids to a Mexican restaurant that we love. The restaurant was empty at 4:30pm and as I'm moving towards our favorite table which we always eat at. My son says "No, let's eat here." so I followed him to a different table. After we eat I noticed above me a folkloric wooden crafted Virgen de Guadalupe. I look at the other table where we usually sit and there's just photos of Mariachis. No Guadalupe near that table. Another affirmation that Virgen de Guadalupe is with me.
This is a common way of looking for signs and getting affirmations from our guardians and guides. I'm sharing this story to express the simplicity of how life works if we are open to it. My role is to guide others in the same path of a Seeker I'm in. It can seem complicated and confusing because we had no guides in our culture but it's just a matter of letting go of our old belief system that is quite limiting and open ourselves to a world where Spirit has it's place.
Thank you for listening and reach out with your own stories of synchronicity!
