Have you ever on a whim while driving home stopped at the local 7-11 for a drink and run into an old friend you’ve been thinking about but haven’t seen in a long time? Isn’t that fun?! When you follow the energy, it felt light to stop and get something to drink, and you walk right into a synchronicity the universe had possibly arranged…..
That’s what I’m talking about when I say Be Present! Be Here Now! Live with awareness of your intuition. It makes life MoRE MAGicaL!
Some people call it choosing in 10 second increments, that works too. In other words, you plan to drive home a certain way, you get an idea, a feeling, maybe an image of stopping somewhere. So you do. And you get MaGiC!
I love it when that gets created and I follow the energy.
I remember when I was in college on a semester study abroad, before the whole semester started I went a couple weeks early with some friends and went to Scandinavia, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. We were staying at hostels, went from London to Copenhagen and then up to Norway, the four of us. We met some cute guy about our age from Philadelphia at one of the youth hostels that wanted to go on the fjord ride not far away the next day. My friends were planning to go further west to the coast and I didn’t know if I wanted to rush through all that as I was going to split off from my friends in a few days to go visit a high school boyfriend of mine in Stockholm. So I chose to go with this new guy from Philly on the fjord ride.
While I was on the fjord ride, I recognized a couple, but I couldn’t place them. Several times I was going to approach them, but didn’t, couldn’t catch their eye, they were pretty into each other.
So I just kept turning it over in my mind, and when I saw the woman leaving the coach with a viola case in hand, all of a sudden it dawned on me who they were! Music (piano and viola) professors at Luther College in Iowa, where I was had spent a couple of weeks studying piano with him four years prior!
So cool! I LOVE SERENDIPITIES!
So I found them in the village after we got off the coaches and I HAD to talk with them now that I’d figured out who they were. So fun! They remembered me and what a coincidence to meet some fellow Iowans four years later in Iowa. I almost studied piano, and he was one I was considering studying with.
So if I had NOT been IN THE MOMENT, if I had not followed the energy, doing the Be Here Now thing, I would NOT have had that MaGicAL experience! It truly was great fun to talk with them and share our interest in the coincidence.
So choosing on intuition, on how you sense the energy…on how does it seem to you, you planned to do this drive, say, is it still a good direction? What about now? What about now?
Living in the moment, being present, Be Here NOW! I invite you to use this, and to welcome it and play with it in your life. I wonder how much MORE magic you will create!
Be Here Now. Don’t stick with decisions and conclusions you made years ago where the winds of change have blown. Would you stay a shorthand teacher, or teach typing on typewriters even though everyone else in the world uses computers, would your school even offer it if it’s not used? Why would you make a decision or conclusion in your life and then stick it out if it’s not aligned with you now? When it doesn’t work for you anymore? If it makes you miserable – we seem to think there’s no choice. There is! There is always another possibility!
Honor the present…..the moment…Be Here Now.
