Syncronicity as definied in Wikipedia is: "the experience of two or more events that are casually unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance, and yet are experienced as occuring together in a meaningful manner". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synchronicity
My world has changed in these two years since I lost the love of my life, my husband and soulmate. Or has it really? Has this " syncronicity thing" not been happening all along and I just didn't realize it. Think about the times you have been wondering about a friend, the phone rings and there he or she is. When I even think now of how my husband and I met in the first place I realize that "it was meant to be". We were in perfect syncronization. But this in and of itself is another part of the story that I will share another time. Here I would like to share some of the things that have been happening to me since he passed on September 4 of 2010.
No Such Thing As Coincidence
Right from the first week of my husband's passing I started seeing and feeling things happening in and around me. There is so much to tell really that I have written a book on it. But here I would like to talk about the feeling of things happening just at a time when I needed it most.
In that first week I decided I had better get out and go to the grocery store and try to carry on in as normal a fashion as I could. So this day I headed out and was driving along the main road to the grocery store when all of a sudden I realized I was following a burgundy Buick LeSabre - the very same car - colour, year, make and model that Craig had last driven. I don't recall following this car out of my community; in fact there are none like it in my community. This day, I was reminded of the times that we would be going off for the day, each in our own cars to do something, but we would usually follow each other to a Tim Horton's first to have a cup of coffee beforehand. And I simply looked at it as a coincidence.
Perfectly in sync with each other
Other Examples of Syncronicity
In the following weeks and months I would start to experience different things that would happen, things that gave me a jolt and made me think of Craig. They say if it hits you, then it is definitely a sign or message for you. And Syncronistic Events is one of the ways that this can happen. It can be a message in a song that pops up on the radio just when you need it most, one that gives you a definite message.
One of my favourite song messages that I received occurred a day after I had put a message on an After Death Communication message board that I had joined. I had asked if anyone had a favourite song that meant something to them and their loved one. I went on to say that our song had been "Let It Be Me". This old Everly Brothers tune was being sung by Willie Nelson in 1983 when Craig and I were trying to get together and he would often sing it to me and along with it when it came on the radio - if we were together. I lamented that I had been waiting to hear this song but it had not yet happened. The very next day I was in Shoppers Drug Mart and just as I was making my way out of the store all of a sudden I heard the words "I bless the day I found You' very faintly on the store's sound system and I stopped dead in my tracks. It was our song - and it was perfectly timed.
The Universe at its Best
Over the next weeks and months the Burgundy Buick LeSabre would continuously show up either in front of me, or passing across my line of vision and I began to realize this was no coincidence. It was meant to happen and it was a sign for me that my loved one was still near and in some way, a way that I did not yet understand, the Universe was in perfect syncronization around me.
My Final Lightbulb Moment
But the experience that finally hit me right upside the head and left me with no more doubt happened while I was reading Mitch Albom's book "The Five People You Meet In Heaven". There is in fact really more than one syncronistic event attached to this. I had bought this book back over five years ago after having read "Tuesdays With Morrie". However when I got it home for some reason I did not feel like reading it and instead put it on my shelf and forgot all about it.
Fast forward to 2010 and the passing of Craig. While at a grief group one night with my stepdaughter, a lady mentioned to me that this would be a good book to read. I immediately remembered that I had it, went home and found it on my bookshelf and began reading the next day.
My favourite chapter for obvious reasons was the fourth chapter, where the protagonist meets his wife, who had passed a few years before, in Heaven. I read along as they reminisced and got reacquainted in Heaven. Then it switched to their time on earth and started recounting different events and things they had shared.
I got to the bottom of a page on the right hand side and decided at that moment to get up and grab myself a popsicle. A bit of history here: I am what you might call a popsicle addict and it was always something that Craig teased me about. In fact at one point he asked our local variety store to put aside a box of popsicles for me - orange please - when he got his order in because I was always running back and forth and buying six at a time. Craig used to say to me "you and your lollipops" with a big grin on his face.
So before turning to the next page I got up, got my popsicle and came back to read on. And on the next page the very first sentence was "One July evening, they found themselves walking by the ocean, eating grape popsicles, their bare feet sinking in the wet sand." Wait a minute!! What did I just read? I went back and read it again and then looked at the grape popsicle that I was holding in my hand! I put the book down at that precise moment and simply said "OK Craig, I know you're here."
Why had I bought that book years before and then discarded it until this point in my life? And why did I get up and get that grape popsicle precisely at the same time I was going to turn the page and read about a grape popsicle.
I knew at that moment that Craig and the Universe in general were all at work around me aligning things in perfect syncronicity - and what a feeling that was and still is to this day.
