I regularly get feelings of déjà vu.. and I believe this to be one of those signs that I’m ‘on the right path’. After reading The Celestine Prophecy many years ago I was fascinated by the feeling of déjà vu and coincidences. The idea that synchronicities are not completely random and a sign from the universe that everything is unfolding as it should is mind-boggling, and incredibly exciting.
I explored my own synchronicities and started journaling them in a Coincidence Book. When you actively become aware of the many synchronicities in your life it is amazing how many more unfold and reveal themselves to you. Has this always been happening in my life and I just haven’t been too self-absorbed to notice?
Where then does free will come into it? The feeling that the universe is guiding us along our correct path contradicts the idea of free will; the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate. Or perhaps it is the exercise of expressing your own free will that matches up with the universes alignment? What about ‘bad’ people, do they also experience occasional déjà vu and coincidences? If so, does that mean they are supposed to be on the path that they have chosen, despite the fact that their actions have a detrimental affect on others? While we are free to make our own choices, we are not free from the consequences of the choices we make.
I know I have posed a lot of questions there. My reality is: I don’t think I question things enough.
I like to believe that many signs come my way to reassure me that my actions are choices are correct. I like to believe in fate.
Below is a quote from an older blog post of mine (is it up your own ass to quote yourself!?) I’m reposting this particular paragraph as it sums up how I feel as I wander along my life path.
EVERYTHING happens for a reason. Have you ever sat with your friends talking about how if ‘x’ never happened then there wouldn’t be ‘y’? I love doing that, it puts my life path into perspective. Even during the times when I felt as though I didn’t know where I was heading; I must have done, on some level. Or else all of these positive things and people wouldn’t be in my life now.
Here is an uncanny thing. The picture below was on my facebook feed yesterday, and made me think about this subject. Then today, the Daily Prompt asked me to think about it again.
Coincidence? That is synchronicity, in a simple form, in action.
Who REALLY knows.
I just know that I believe it to work, and therefore it does.
P.S I signed up to get TUT’s Notes from the Universe delivered to my inbox every morning. I know the notes aren’t actually from the universe, but they COULD be 😉
It’s a great way to start your day, with a little drop of appreciation and gratitude.
