I’m very interested in “The Secret”, though I don’t quite know how it works. I’m also very interested in my spiritual guides — though I don’t exactly know how they work. And because of my interest and belief in these two things (among others), I don’t really believe in coincidences. Though I can’t always explain what happens to me — or why things stick out in my mind — I do believe there is some purpose or message.
1) 666 I’m still seeing it quite often. Sometimes it’s just “66” or “606”, but I’ve been seeing 3 of them back-to-back, too.
2) Cardinals. Red cardinals everywhere. I know it’s probably related to the season and how they can stand the winter, but I am seeing them and hearing them EVERYWHERE. I think they may be my bird for the year. (Although I’ve seen a few hawks already, too, and huge random swarms of birds flying overhead.)
3) 10 likes. I was just thinking this past week that it would be great if I could get to 10 “like”s on WordPress, and that very same day I got 10, and then more!
4) Weird connection that requires a backstory: (Ahem! Here goes.) Last week I re-organized the entire house during my snow day, and this included the area under our small entertainment center. I found a video that I knew wasn’t mine and that I thought probably belonged to one of my teacher friends: Nim’s Island. I thought I remembered my friend calling me to ask about it a few months ago, and at the time I had no idea what she was talking about. So, Brian and I watched it together over the weekend, so that we could see it before we returned it to her. (I believe I posted about it briefly earlier.) And . . . this past Saturday I tutored a student who was drawing pictures of crocodiles and was talking about the crocodile hunter (Steve). I hadn’t heard him mentioned in quite a while (since his death, I think), so it seemed rather random to me. Today I saw a news article on Steve Irwin’s daughter on yahoo, and I remembered my student’s interest, and I checked it out. It turns out that his daughter is now a child actress and is appearing on the sequel to — you guessed it — Nim’s Island.
I absolutely love this sort of thing. So, I’m keeping my eye out for more! Hey, what “coincidences” have you experienced lately?
