Miracles, Synchronicities, Confirmation
In my life, and in this line of work, I have been witness to many extraordinary things and miracles. Over time it has become commonplace to have one or more of these synchronicities occur throughout my day.
Last summer I met a native elder who expressed " I don't believe in miracles..I expect them." And I feel the same way.
He was endeavouring to explain that the more we listen to our intuition, and the more we are present with our life and present within ourselves, the more we become witness to the wonderful miracle that life is. We expect the miraculous, because it becomes our 'norm'.
Now just because I 'expect' miracles does not mean that they are ever boring, or that I no longer have extreme gratitude for them. In fact quite the opposite is true. They never cease to amaze me. I am humbled by them.
Just the other day I was tidying up after a weekend of beautiful Reiki classes with extraordinary healers and was in a state of extreme gratitude. During this time, my Mom happenned to call me.
During the distance healing part of our Level 2 Reiki class I had been sending some healing energy her way. I thought she may have been calling about that as she sometimes 'feels' distance Reiki. She did say her headache went away at that time, but the reason she was calling was to tell me about a 'strange and wonderful' thing that had happenned around that same time.
My Mom is a very wonderfully creative lady and years ago she was taking a watercolour class during the summer. It was during a time I was facing a very serious illness and she had been worried about me. Her teacher had asked them all to talk about their paintings that day once they had finished. She had described the different elements in her painting and explained that a large yellow light part of her painting represented a circle of light and all of the people that were helping me become well again. she had named the painting Circle of Light. As she told me this story I was overcome...I burst into tears.
She had never told me this story before, and she had since forgotten about the name of the painting. It wasn't until the day she found it again that she realized the significance. My business is named Circle of Light. I received that name very clearly one day while meditating and it has always been with me. Even when moving to the Waterdown location I contemplated changing or even modifying the name and could not do it..I kept getting the strong message that the name was Circle of Light. So here she was cleaning out her basement in preparation to move and pulling out an old painting that she had named the exact name I had receive for my business.
Was it an accident or co-incidence? I know it was not. Circle of Light is a representation of the circle of light we all have individually..our own personal light as well as the collective healing light we expand into when our energies merge together, when we work together and help one another. This name has had many meanings for me over the years, and it touches my heart and soul that we both received this same message albeit in different ways. It is confirmation to me that in spite of the many challenges I have faced over the years that I am on the right path. The Circle of Light is my thankfullness for the healing I have received coupled with my hope to share this same gift with all who require healing in their life right now.
We all have moments when we question our life path no matter how wonderful it is. Self contemplation is part of our humanity..it is how we change, grow and evolve. This 'miracle' was a sign to me that no matter what may happen in the future, to hold steady to the dream. I need to do this work..it is who I am...Being of service to others, in whatever capacity they may need me, is my joy and I cannot imagine living any other way.
My wish for everyone reading this is to have your own miracle in the coming days, weeks or months to give you the confirmation you need to make your dreams a reality. Anything IS possible.....We just need to BELIEVE!
