Have you ever had something that you really, really wanted fall unexpectedly into your lap?  Or something you needed help deciding and then all of a sudden the answer was right in front of you?  Coincidence?  The universe?

I’ve always had a thing for coincidences and synchronicity.  Sometimes, it hasn’t worked out well.  For example, for many years, before my mom got sick, she’d tell us that she thought she was going to die at 59.  We always told her she was insane and there was no way she was getting sick and dying and certainly not a 59. When she turned 59 she threw a big party (Fred Astaire – for my daughter – her favorite!)  and said, “Well, this is my year – my time.”  We again told her she was insane.  But four months later she was diagnosed with brain cancer and died six weeks later – at 59.

I’ve had my own fair share of envisioning things that in one way or another came true.  So I’ve always wondered, what is this all about?  Is there some way that our thinking brings things to us?  I have no idea.  But this is my impression of how it works:

A large percentage (85%) of all communication is body language.  How you hold yourself, how you connect with people, the energy you put out there — and, that’s what you get back.  It’s what some people call the “law of attraction.”  

Some time back I was in a situation that I wasn’t sure about.  I kept asking for “direction” (from I’m not sure who, but I continued to ask).  I totally got the signs that I was looking for – some brutally clear – but I ignored them – (not really believing in signs despite the fact that I was asking for them!).  

Recently, I’ve been working on making a major life change and every time I get scared, I ask the “universe” to give me a sign that I’m going in the right direction.  I hate to admit this but I’ve gotten some pretty good signs!  

Here’s what I think:  when you visualize something and can see it in your life you start to send out those signals with your body language.  People react to the body language and before long, you have the opportunity you were looking for.

So, let’s don’t be afraid to ask.  The worst thing that can happen? We don’t get it?  What’s the best?  We do!  I have a feeling that these things take time. So if you really want some inspiration – give yourself that extra space and time.  Visualize what you want, feel yourself in possession of it, notice the sense of fulfillment and happiness.  Honestly, I think you’ll be amazed at the outcome.  

Still no answers on how it works but at this stage in my life, I’m not sure I really care how, I just care that it’s happening!

Keep me posted and have a great day!
