Check out these lyrics and images for your own secret messages.
I’ve been watching your show on Public Access in Tucson, AZ. I’ve been moved to place my experiences on your website. Since a very young age, this concept of 'synchronicity" has followed me all my life in ways that brought both happiness and terrible deep pain and sadness. I am not sure of how or what they signify, for example: I can be listening to someone talk about a show they saw on TV and forget about it...then later on I turn on the TV and there is that same show. Or (like many) can be wishing for that certain song to appear on the radio and there it will be. I also find that I can purchase articles of clothing in colors I enjoy, then, at completely different dates and times find matching items that match perfectly or close to perfect and they have nothing to do with each other - other than the clothes match.
While these examples are quite simple and light, others such as: being hired at the same company of a former lover that I had no idea was there and who eventually broke my entire heart and mind and brain and spine to where I ended up in the hospital- is more of a poignant example.
In 2011, I lost this same job at the hospital (Carondelet) after over 10 years of employment and at the same time a 15-year relationship ended within months of each other. How "uppity" and "Stuck-up" I was to think I was just going to "bounce-back" into the world. I didn't. I fell lower and lower and more deep down into a sadness Id never ever experienced before. I began listening to songs on my cell phone. Random maybe? Such as "Hallelujah," and Paul McCartney's "Admiral Halsey," - so random and the music is about 30 years older than myself. I turned on a movie one day about depression and within one of the scenes as the background music, was the Paul McCartney song.
Then I went to a concert at the U of A to hear KD Lang sing and she did her own rendition of "Hallelujah," I was crying in my chair. Sometimes I think it was an Angel or the Universe just tapping me on the shoulder saying, "I hear you - I see you in such pain and it’s going to be ok."
Maybe that's what I was being told? I don't know what to think???
Any advice would be helpful.
First, let me say that I deeply appreciate you taking the time to share the synchronicities you’ve experienced all of your life as well as the ones you recognized that helped you make your way through those devastating times. By sharing your experiences you are offering insight and inspiration to others.
And, Congratulations on successfully decoding the personal oracle message spirit was sending you: “I hear you – I see you in such pain and it is going to be Ok.”
Your examples of everyday synchronicities are great, how wonderful that they don’t slip by you unnoticed! The song Hallelujah was an amazing gift from the universe during the dark times. (It always gives me Goosebumps)
Here is another gift to you via me. The song is Anthem by Leonard Coehn.
It contains one of my favorite lines: There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”
You seem to be navigating your way through, so I don’t know if I can give you any advice, but I can offer a couple of truths to hold on to.
The first is from an old Apache storyteller who reminds us:
“The plants, trees, clouds, rocks, fire, water are all alive. They watch is and see our needs. They see when we have nothing to protect us, and it is then they reveal themselves and speak to us.”
The second is the formula for how personal oracles operate.
Need + Delivery System + Message = Personal Oracle
When we embrace the fact that the universe is designed to support our needs, and that we are never alone it can give us the hope and courage we need to make our way through everything.
Thanks again for sharing – please stay in touch.
