I ran and poured myself a hot cup of tea, seeing the frost on the ground outside, I put my shoes on and I headed out!
From my bedroom window I stared. There they were, not TEN FEET (THREE METERS) IN FRONT OF ME!!! All munching down the fresh fallen leaves. Again, they locked eyes on me and I shivered.
This was my first elk sighting in three years of working this retreat and the first ever herd sighting in my life!
They looked like such an amazing combination of deer, cow, camel and horse. How magnificent, us creatures. So similar and so different. All one of this majestic place we call Earth.
They came and went several more times in just three days. As did families of deer. My heart feels touched, my soul seen.
After ~5+ years of living intentionally and exploring spirituality, with all these tiny seemingly "coincidences" showing up in my life, I no longer believe in coincidences. I know I'm being guided.
I've read several "self-help" and spiritual texts that all say "coincidences" are omens or, plainly put, signs that you are on the right path. You see, life is meant to flow like this!! Though, because we don't live in a world awake to life's magic, we live in a world that thrives only through intellect (to a fault), we call it a miracle, hunk it up to luck and keep slumping along hoping and wising our lives could be different.
I will always remind you that your life is what you make it and you do have the power to turn yourself around!
The power of intention is critical for your life. What you focus on grows! In the dark of a new moon, I set intentions. This last new moon (Oct. 27th) I decided to write down my intentions and keep them front of mind. It's W I L D (there's that word again) to see what lessons an opportunities the Universe is hurling at me. When you are ready to show up, the Universe is ready to deliver.
Well, the Universe is kind of always delivering, but when you are ready to show up, suddenly you're able to see things you didn't quite see before.
