Remember the last time you felt like you'd been run over by a six ton Greyhound bus? Did you get the license number?
We've all been there . . . I remember a certain hockey game . . . I was sixteen, a teammate was passing me the puck, it was just about to touch my stick and . . . The next thing I knew, I was flat on my back looking up into a combination of blackness and exploding light . . . NOT a good experience . . . It reminds me of an old expression . . . If I knew what was REALLY going to happen today, I might never get out of bed!
However, I'm not so much talking about that kind of thing . . . It's more of an emotional experience I'm referring to . . . We get blindsided emotionally from time to time . . . Sometimes good, and sometimes not . . . And, there are times when events and the accompanying emotions are catalysts for change in our lives . . . And often, we don't even realize at that point that change might be necessary until well after the fact . . . But, someone parachutes in, seemingly out of nowhere, and things begin to go in a different direction . . .
I go back to 2001 . . . A man named Denis suddenly appeared in my then workplace as a replacement for a colleague who had become quite ill . . . Some people didn't care for him, and I could never understand why . . . Denis and I became very good friends from the get go, and it was completely out of the blue . . . I was having a difficult time with a few things at that period in my life . . . Nothing traumatic, but some things had to be worked through and I was doing that . . . But Denis was the one who said a few things and exhibited some behaviors that put me over the top in a sense . . . I'm a great believer in synchronicity . . . Was it preordained that we meet the way we did, and that he would be the catalyst I needed at that point? I have some definite views on that . . .
Yes, I believe that if we're open to the Universe and its messages, we're going to receive those messages all the time . . . They could take any number of forms, but they happen . . . I've seen it over and over . . . And, they can blindside us . . . Just, BANG! Here's a message for you Sport . . . You'd better be listening to it! And I know I've been the catalyst in other peoples' lives now and again, and they didn't see it coming in any way, shape, or form . . .
So, the point is this . . . Be OPEN to the messages we're being sent . . . Don't run away from them, or minimize them, or ignore them . . . Listen to the inner voice of intuition . . . It's usually right, and often coming from a higher source!
Life is beautiful baby!
Peace and love . . .
Until next time . . . Ciao!!
