Synchronicity Makes for a Strange Day

Yesterday, on my usual drive to work, I seemed to have gotten behind a lot of slow driving people.  It was very frustrating!  I could feel road rage creeping in as I tried to remain calm.

It had me wondering if the universe was trying to tell me something.  As it turns out I got to work, not late, but later than normal.  The person I work with even commented that maybe my vehicle broke down.

I have had this happen several times before but I normally don’t have a clue as to why because the day seemed to go pretty normal.  One time I had a bad feeling about where my son wanted to keep my mother-in-laws ashes.  I called my wife and explained it to her.  After I hung up I hit ALL GREEN lights along a stretch of road that I have never done that on before nor since!  After I told my family, my son complied with my suggestions.

Back to yesterday, about a half hour in to my shift, I find out in a very cold way that the business I have worked for for almost 10 years now has new owners.  We all new this was coming and probably this week, that was not surprising at all, but it was the poor guy coming to install a new credit card machine that let us know the sale was completed.  Not my “previous” employer.  Not even the new employer.  The poor guy from the bank!  Now I have a couple of very stressful months getting things back to normal and hopefully a seamless transition from the public point of view.

I thought back to my drive into work and … well … I believe this is called “synchronicity”.  Someone/something/the universe was trying to warn me.

Considering my studies of the last couple of years, I have been more open and trying to pay more attention to things around me.  I can see the material fundamentalists saying that was just coincident or the religious faithful quoting Deuteronomy 18:10 or some other scripture and condemning me to hell fire for paying attention to life, paying attention to the very thing their god created.

The times I have felt synchronicity it has been a very strong if not obvious wake up call.  But most of the time I don’t know what the wake up call was for.  Did I miss out on an accident?  Did I miss out on a car jacking?  Did it change the day enough that I missed out on something bad happening to me?

Well, time to go to work!

Peace, Love and Light!
