My life as it currently stands is akin to a blank canvass, on which I find myself in a unique position to paint whatever I wish. This is technically true for everyone in that we each have a choice to do what we will with the life we are given. It’s like the quote from the book “The Alchemist” that I am reminded of from time to time: “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” This is an important truth that is often rejected due to skepticism, unfortunately. The idea that the powers that be would dare to bring us exactly what we want is just too good to be true.
While vacationing in Mexico last week, I attempted to find my way back to a restaurant I had visited only once before by taxi. I was driving a golf cart, by myself, and even though I had an idea of where the restaurant was located, I did not remember exactly. I wound up getting lost, and then considered that if I stopped trying to find it, it would most likely appear. That's what happened. A big tiled sign that read “Mango Café” with an arrow pointing in the direction I needed to take was revealed. Talk about divine timing. Needless to say, this experience reminded me of why it was so important to pay attention to signs and synchronicity. It was a metaphor that brought instant relief from a growing and urgent need to know exactly how my life’s vision would unfold.
As I begin to discover where this next chapter leads, I accept and recognize that the best route involves me following the hunches of my heart. When I feel uncertain, I can loosen my focus and get present. I can reassure myself that all that is lost will be found. Of course these things are much easier said than done, and require a deep faith. But I know for certain that the signs will eventually reveal themselves; what is supposed to happen, will, as if by magic like my experience in Mexico. If there is a simple and soulful intention to get to where I want to be, I trust without a doubt that the universe will conspire in helping me to achieve it.
