I teach about syncronicites, or strands as I call them.
They used to arrive to me in extremely direct ways—seeing 40 El Caminos in one day, for example. Walking directly into the arms of the man who was to become my partner at a concert of 30,000 people, as another.
Very direct, can't-miss-it stuff.
You go around thinking the Universe is random and then this stuff happens and you know it isn't so.
Recently, a tweet by Iyanla Vanzant came into my feed. I noticed it in the way that you do. No big deal.
The next day later, I I saw she was going to be a guest speaker at INATS, where I was also going to be. So, that was weird.
By this time, I'm paying a little bit of attention. Not a lot. It's just on my radar.
The next day, I head into the twn of Independence Oregon, population 9,000. I get a croissant and latte at the local bakery. And on an absolute whim, I step into the tiny used book store that's been there for decades.
I have not been in that store for five years. But today, it's Iike a tractor beam is pulling me in. I can't stop myself.
I head back to the Spirituality and Self Help section, and here's where it gets weird. There's absolutely no one in the store, except in that particular aisle there's a woman standing exactly where I want to look.
It's very awkward!
I saw something like "I'm not trying to crowd you, I just like this section too".
And she says nothing.
She doesn't respond or move or nod or shrug.
Almost like—almost like she's not a human, or she's not really there.
Because this woman is standing where I want to stand, I have to stand in front of a different section. I look up, and I see a book and I pull the book off the shelf.
And of course this book is by Iyanla Vanzant.
I start laughing. I have no idea what any of it means, and it's not important.
I realize simply that I am in the midst of a strand, and I am being guided.
I buy the book.
I head outside into the sun and open the book to a random page, where I read "The only requirement for you to become a living example of faith is to work on yourself."
Which is the answer to the question I have been asking the Divine all week.
