Hello, Witches! Apologies for my tardiness – I was caught up in one of the day jobs yesterday and just didn’t get time to blog. To be honest, it’s been a tough few weeks, and I found driving for a 2 hour return journey and a 4 hour meeting pretty taxing. While I was driving I was listening to Devin Hunter’s Modern Witch podcast for the first time, which I really enjoyed. I’ve just about caught up on The Witch Wave so I was looking for something new to sink my teeth into.
What I wanted to write about today was synchronicities – what Pam Grossman calls ‘The Trail of Cosmic Breadcrumbs’, what my mother calls serendipity or kismet. In the Law of Attraction, it’s often said that those synchronicities are due to our putting certain energies out into the Universe, and the Universe bringing those things back to us. For example, when you’re thinking of an old friend and then the song you used to sing together comes on the radio. Or you think of something you used to love to do and suddenly see in the newspaper that there’s a course running locally. It’s those little ‘coincidences’ that I wanted to address, and how our energies work kind of like boomerangs.
On Hecate’s Night I did a spell to release and receive – release those things that no longer served me to make space in my life for the blessings I want to receive. I do believe that when we hold onto emotional clutter, that our lives become more cluttered as a result. So lately, I’ve been cutting off those dead twigs. Things like people I used to do some freelance work for, but who never paid me – cut off. Or friends who only wanted to hang out to get drunk, or who didn’t carry good energies – cut off. It may seem harsh, but for someone who’s stuck inside their anxious mind like I am, emotional and mental clutter is T O X I C. When you simplify your life, there is less mental noise, and you can begin to truly listen.
When I did my spell, I was releasing negative feelings that I was holding onto from a project that kind of went to sh*t this year. It’s still there, and it’s still going to pan out fine, but I caught myself getting weighed down in negative energies and dark feelings about it. So I released those feelings, and literally a week later, things started to pick up again. The news began to come through more and more positive. I don’t think that’s a coincidence, do you? By making space in my mind for positivity surrounding that project, the positive energies began to re-gather. I started to feel fresher and lighter, and the phone calls weren’t so bad anymore. Today, I even had a phone call that made me feel truly positive, and secure in the sense that I do believe it’s all coming together.
As I’ve said before, the Universe does communicate with us. And if we ask for the wrong thing, or the right thing in the wrong way, Spirit will play tricks on us. If you can get clear in your head on what you want out of your life, and start really listening to what the Universe is trying to tell you, you’d be surprised how many more ‘coincidences’ and happy accidents begin to occur. The thing is, they were always there – you just weren’t looking.
On my trip yesterday, I happened to run into someone I’d been really worried about, in the sense that I thought they might have negative feelings about me. I could have got away without saying hello, but I did, and I was so glad I did. They were sweet and lovely, and all my worry was for nothing. With that little brave step, taking the Universe’s bait, so to speak, I was able to (unexpectedly) lift one small burden off my shoulders. And those little burdens all add up.
Now, a lot of ‘synchronicities’ are also just our smart phones spying on us, so please remember that just because you had a conversation about a handbag and then it popped up in the Black Friday sales, it was a sign. That’s just espionage. We’re talking about genuine messages from the Universe here.
I suppose what I’m trying to say is, don’t close your eyes to the messages that are coming through. Sometimes, if you dream of someone, there’s a reason. Give that person a call, and see if they’re alright. Chances are, they were thinking of you, too.
What synchronicities has the Universe thrown you lately? Tell me over on Facebook.
