There are times on Facebook when sharing the synchronicities that occur in our daily lives is fun.  Many of us are familiar with what some call “coincidences” and frequently use the concept, like mentally sending ahead for a parking space.

But do synchronicities work when the matter concerning us is really important?

An example occurred yesterday (1/9/13) that immediately brought home for me the deeper meaning of Jesus’ teaching:  “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.  For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”  Luke 11:9-10

A long-time friend, Kiko, sent me an e-mail on 1/8/13 detailing her experiences of the Ascension energies around December 21 and continuing to this day.  Her writing was both profound and beautiful, so I asked her permission to post it on my blog and send it to others.   Although she is a dedicated Lightworker, her manner of relating to others is more oriented to one-on-one and small groups.  I doubt writing for the public has ever occurred to her.  Still, she granted me permission.  I could have simply read her e-mail and answered, then deleted it.  She could have shied away from posting her writing for the public. 

As I prepared her message for my blog, I felt that knowing more of her personal life would give additional credence to her words.  I added a few sentences about her as an individual, including the fact that her 21 year old son was drowned when—without warning–the dam was opened while he was crossing the river early one morning.  I could have neglected the inner urging to include information about Sandor, her son.

Actually, as I write this—and the same happened yesterday—tears of joy spring to my eyes because I feel Sandor’s presence with me.  He wanted this information to be included.  This is who Sandor is—a very advanced soul.  From his station in the heavenly realms, he knew the details of the event about to unfold and urged Kiko and I along.

When Kiko read what I had written, she wanted to add a Note about how she dealt with her grief.  Kiko could have very easily said, “No, I don’t want to bring up that subject.”  I would have removed that portion of my blog.  Instead, she chose to add information.

In Remembrance of Sandor

“Who never moved without grace,

Never spoke without gentleness,

Never looked without seeing good.

We will find you now in all things growing

And flowing; and we are all a little

Bit more beautiful for having known you.”

–Colleen Anderson


As some of you may know, I recently began posting what I call “Musings Of An Awakened Minister.”  I do so because prior to August 2012, he was a conservative theologian, serving on the staff of two churches.  When he wrote me, I was struck by how quickly he moved from orthodox conservatism to understanding the hidden wisdom in the Bible.  I could have done as I usually do, answer his e-mail and delete it. 

However, as is often happening now, I proceeded without knowing why or thinking through my action.  It’s as if I am on automatic pilot.  I requested to post his writings anonymously, since he continues to serve in mainstream churches and they might disapprove.  Thus began the series entitled “Musings of An Awakened Minister,” which you can read on my blog.  This series has allowed me to get to know this minister and regularly correspond with him.

Unknown to Kiko, this minister, and I, a link was now established that would serve to answer a mother’s plea.  Ask and you shall receive. 

Sandor?  I feel that he has known all along.

 I posted Kiko’s message on January 9, 2013 and sent my minister friend the URL.  This morning, January 10, 2013, the minister wrote.

Your letter, as well as Kiko’s, were:  “a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.” (Proverbs 25:11)  What truly inspired prose from both of you. 

 I forwarded Kiko’s message to someone who just had a past-life regression done and her question to me last night was “How does a mother deal with the loss of her child?”  Well…. you sent me Kiko’s message, and voila’… there is the answer from God-Source.  Yep!  We are sooo connected or, as we say in French, “branche” —– all “branches” from a “vine”!  How biblically-phrased is that???!”

I could have neglected to send this minister the URL to Kiko’s message.  He could have gotten busy and forgotten to send Kiko’s message to this grieving mother.

 Look at all the opportunities (in bold font) in this single event that one or more of the individuals involved had to break the chain of synchronicity.

Do synchronicities work in really important matters?  In even more glorious ways!

In this event alone, the span of Unity Consciousness stretches from Sandor in the heavenly realms (who could very easily know this mother’s child) … to me in Virginia … to Sandor’s Mom in Hawaii … to the anonymous minister in still another state … to the grieving Mother.

A Mother asked the Universe for comfort in her grief and the Universe heard and answered her plea through a circuitous route that the Mother could have never dreamed up.

“Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.”
