“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I’ve heard so many personal stories lately of synchronicities. It’s enough to give me goosebumps! It’s neat when you hear it from another person — they are giving you a summary of all the signs, minus all of the distracting, unrelated stuff along the way. It’s a reminder to keep alert, keep still. Keep your eyes (and eye!) open after you set that goal, after you project your desires to the universe. Your answer, the completion of your creation may come from anywhere, in any form!
Do you have a recent synchronistic experience? (An amazing aligning of your experiences that matches your plans and desires?) Please share below!

I was looking for a parapsychology/graphology club meetup that I’d visited some months ago when my classmate had given a metaphysics lecture there. I remembered that they met the first Friday of the month at the Panera right by my house, so I checked it out today. Pretty much no parapsychology people today, but the graphology club was there. Brian went with, and we learned a bit about handwriting analysis and the history of the group, and then they analyzed our handwriting samples to see if Brian and I were a match. (Turns out we’ll be fine. Phew! :-))
My favorite parts of the analysis were 1) When they identified that I would not be the type to want to sit behind a desk; I would want to be mobile and 2) When they said Brian was the type who needed some time to himself, and I was the type who wanted a lot of activity. (Yes and Yes!) Somehow that gave me a bit of a perspective on things, helped me understand why we keep butting heads — him wanting to stay home and me wanting to be out. Not sure yet how to compromise on #2. As they analyzed — I can be pretty stubborn! What has ended up happening has been that I’ve been out quite a bit, and he’s been home quite a bit. This seemed like the perfect solution to me, but has not been ideal for him. (It’s a process.)
It was funny and cute the way they asked us if we were still going to stay together after what we’d learned about each other, when really — we’ve been together so long that it’s pretty much as if we’re already married. . .
So, as much as I was hoping for more parapsychology, I do also enjoy any kind of personality analysis. Brian and I both had a good time, and I plan to check out some of their future meetups.
