I would like to make some interesting correlations with the date 11-11-11. Of all significance people like to put towards dates out there, this one for some reason just falls right into place. Many claim to always have had some kind of weird nuance when they randomly look at a clock and see its 11:11. Others think it’s just a meaningless moment regardless of how serendipitous it may appear to someone else.
Many argue that a coincidence is what you make of it. I agree to an extent, usually the event means nothing to someone else because they don’t see a correlation with it. Mainly because they weren’t meant too - our realities vary to a certain degree. My perspective is not the same as someone else’s. Such that; I believe UFOs or Aliens have visited us in the past and continue to do so today. Someone else might believe, and the importance is on the belief, that they do not even exist at all. And in a sense, in their perspective of reality they really don’t.
So let’s get back to 11 11 11
I wanted to hear something new from Nassim Haramein the other day. And if you don’t know who he is please go look him up. He’s shaking the world of physics with his new theories, my favorite explaining the existence of a black hole in every atom containing the entire mass of the universe.
I decided to watch a lecture (which was probably the newest footage of him I noticed on youtube) that takes place in Germany and is in German (minus his parts). He is describing these artifacts found in Central American and what they may represent.
At least begin watching at 4:55
8:10 – wormhole related
12:20 - sun related
He shows how these wormholes or star gates work in one artifact. Then in another he explains that the circular object in the back is most likely earth but definitely a planet with an atmosphere. He points out the UFO behind the one object that appears to be a comet which is headed towards the planet. Then he even explains the other UFO appears to be affecting the trajectory of the comet like object.
Now the other unique thing I noticed while I watched a video from one of the Youtube channels I follow. The video by that author, which was released today, shows older footage by Nassim Haramein explaining some interesting footage.
Notice how he explains the Vatican owning the imaging satellites focused on the Sun. I’ll leave room for your own interpretation for why that is.
So because I’m a big nerd now I’ve been following anything and everything in the skies. Recently the big talk has been on asteroid YU55. This object is supposed to pass in-between the earth and the moon, and actually will be .8 lunar distance from earth. The size of it has been fluctuating for the past couple months although now is listed at 400m (about as tall as the WTC buildings 1 or 2).
Now based on NASA & JPL orbital paths YU55 will not hit the Earth. I want to make that clear. It’s the other aspects of that time frame that I’m interested in. Although, Richard Hoagland, American Author and Science Advisor, did mention in an interview that his sources claimed YU55 may have changed trajectory and won’t even have its official course until the 8th.
And if you get a chance, listen to more of his interviews with an open mind, they’re quite fascinating.
Some of you may have heard about the Mayan Pilgrimage with the Crystal Skulls that began last week. They have been holding ceremonies all over the United States a certain sacred sites to awaken the consciousness of mother earth and this particular set of ceremonies is ending on 11-11-11 in Los Angeles. Somewhere along the line, what the Mayans were doing and were always going to be doing as it was written in their civilization, became skewed to put lightly. People have been claiming they’re going to be opening star gates to release demons from hell all over the Earth. This is laughable when you understand what the Mayan actually represent and want for the world.
Back to the lecture with Nassim Haramein.
I’m excited to watch the entire thing because as you may have noticed at the end of the video they bring out what appears to be one of the Mayan crystal skulls. Hopefully when the rest of the Lecture is released I can elaborate more. I’m excited to see it’s correlation to the star gates and the sun.
I do want to say that I’ve been noticing a lot more chem trailing lately, which is another story on its own. There are a lot of theories on what the purpose of these trails are used for, one of the most obvious is that they create cloud coverage, Man-made cloud coverage. I’ve known about these for quite some time but noticed specifically tonight that they were used as a blanket directly and only in line with the sun. The fact of the matter is there is something going on with our Sun, the Vatican probably knows, and it’s being hidden from us.
Take a second and think of the conscious structure of a Dream. Your consciousness is existing completely and utterly in a place that you believe to be absolutely real. Then there are lucid dreams which exist when you become aware that you are dreaming and are able to control it. Both aspects of the dream are fascinating when you truly think about it, and you should think about it.
I remember as a kid, I use to have lucid dreams all the time and at the time I use to use the lucidity of them to fly or float around. I’ve also noticed that since I was a kid my creativity has expanded; unfortunately my lucid dreaming has not. For a time I went through a lucid dream drought and I hated it. Although since the release of the movie Inception I started having them again. I was experimenting weeks after the movie came out and the day I had my first lucid dream in years I called off work to see if I could keep it going. You can look up certain methods to tricking or educating your mind to enter a lucid dream more often, and they work. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about.
Has it ever occurred to you where your consciousness goes when in a dream state? Think about what is actually taking place in this experience. You can close your eyes all you want while in a wakeful state and never come close to imagining anything that resembles what you experience in a dream. Now the brain exists at different wave frequencies throughout the day (alpha, beta, gamma, delta, theta etc.) and oddly enough it’s when it’s at the lower states that it’s capable of these dream states. I find that fascinating considering how much time we spend dreaming. And considering how little psychologists know about dreams is also fascinating. I’m sure everyone has heard at some point or another that humans only use a very small percentage of our brain. That should shock us more than it does. Same goes with what we know about our DNA and its double helix, but primarily consists of ‘Junk’ DNA. Its thoughts like this that help me delve deeper into these ideas.
You know what else is odd about dreams? You can never die; if you do you wake up. But believe it or not people have died in their dreams. My roommate in college died in his dream once or twice, and something else I find odd about that is after he died, the dream played out like a near death experience in real life. He witnessed his dead, lifeless body on the ground. If you haven’t ever done any research on near death experiences I highly recommend it. You get a better understanding that a lot of people out there that have near death experiences have a conscious experience before they are revived. These experiences can take place with no brain activity at all, and by scientific understandings, that can’t happen.
Unique that it exists in ways you never thought it could…
With the amount of coincidences I have daily, I never feel them worthy to post unless it is something meaningful to the ‘Bigger Picture.’ I thought yesterday morning that I need something worth writing about, something that might trigger discernment in at least one person. This is what I came to understand that day.
So I’ve been studying and using this timewave app that the philosopher and spiritual teacher Terence McKenna created. It charts different energy levels from history and tries to match them in intervals with todays. It’s pretty extensive and takes some getting use to but is rather amazing.
One of the cycles measures life lessons at 18 day intervals.
I work with a guy about my age who bought a new dirt bike over the summer. Well about a month ago or so he wrecked and got bruised up pretty bad. He was not wearing a helmet and was lucky he didn’t seriously injure himself. A couple weeks after that he wrecked again. He suffered a concussion, broken nose, several stitches, and bruises. Again, he was not wearing his helmet. I talked to him last week about the incident. I asked him in a joking way how many days apart were these accidents. I was interested in seeing if they were 18 days apart, thinking this his ‘life lesson’ was to wear a helmet or something.
We both decided we could figure out when the 2nd date was because of his hospital bill and he had missed work. At least then I would have something to work with.
Yesterday I went over to talk to him and he told me he had found out that the 2nd date was August 26th, so I quickly did some mental math to figuring 18 days from that would be around today’s date. Then realizing it was the day before I said to him “Wait… did anything happen to you yesterday?”
He pauses for a second and says “Well I opened the hospital bill… I’ve had it for the past week but was scared to open it.” Convenient? $7,000 Hospital Bill. I’d say that’s a lesson learned… And if anything me pointing this out to him hopefully guarantees he never rides without a helmet again.
1st wreck……………………………………………….. August 8th???
2nd wreck………………………………………………. August 26th
Opening hospital bill …………………………………. September 13th
And this is something I just realized. I always want a dual camera mode to document synchronicities, because I think coincidences can be in sync with thought. I bet the hospital bill came the day I asked him the number of days between the accidents. (And for the fun of this paragraph I’m assuming the 1st wreck was also 18 days prior to the 2nd wreck.)
It’s nice to see some type of results on my own record and not just historical events.
What if every thought mattered? What if all matter was thought?
I sure hope you can follow this…
Friday night one of my friends had the whimsical idea of testing our psychic abilities. So he decided to think of a number 1 – 10 and have myself and another friend guess what it was later that night. He wrote the number down in an envelope and sent a picture of him holding it to his forehead to let us know he was serious. Then he continually thought about the number and wrote it down.
I didn’t realize it was serious until I got to the friend’s house (who came up with the idea) and saw this. Pardon his primitive penmanship.
I still hadn’t taken it too seriously at that point and began watching T.V. I’m guessing it to be around 9:00pm EST, and if I had an unedited footage or transcript of the X Games from last Friday night (which I cannot find anywhere) I could tell you the exact second. Because something very interesting happened at that exact moment after I decided to try and think of the number.
THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I REMEMBER IT
I said to myself (in my head) while looking at the T.V. [I need to see a sign of the number; Show me the number] Still looking at the TV the ESPN analyst was talking about Jamie Bestwick and how he had just won the gold medal in bmx for the fifth straight time. The moment after I asked for the revelation the analyst describing the rider’s accomplishment actually said 8th rather than 5th. He actually corrected himself and I could tell by the inflection in his voice he was shocked he said 8th, like it came out of nowhere.
I actually remember yelling at the T.V. to my friend because I wasn’t sure if he saw it. I yelled “Glitch! Glitch! I have my number.” It was at that time I was in utter shock because something told me without a doubt that I had the correct number.
Then my friend I was watching it with said he had his too. He said he meditated briefly on it and that he heard it pop up in his mind like someone said it. Shortly after all of this our friend came walking through the door. None of us had mentioned to each other what we thought the number was. So the friend who came up with the idea blurts out “Okay! What number am I thinking of?”
So my other friend looks at him and says “8” very confidently. And of course I said “8.” Of course we cheered quite a bit. But it seemed every minute after that point I kept thinking not about the odds of us guessing the number, but how we both came to the numbers as we did.
Basically after thinking about this I wanted to come up with several experiments that could in a way prove that humans have a collective unconscious (Carl Jung’s theory) through what I witnessed that night. They would have to be called Jungian Slips though rather than Freudian, Freud was completely against Jung’s theory of the collective unconscious.
If you instantaneously rule out the idea of this theory, then you must have entered through the window.
While writing this post up I had an epiphany. So I have to hold off on this post (and actually delete my last) until I finish the proposal for this theory. I think I may have stumbled upon something ground breaking relating to the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Something so important, I’m in awe of what I prematurely named this post.
Have you ever heard of the measurement problem? I’m surprised it’s not talked about more because it’s kind of a big deal. Well, really small big deal. The measurement problem refers to the fact that an atom never occupies a particular space until there is a conscious observer attempting to view it. Before this takes place, the atom exists as both a particle and a wave. Meaning it is never objectively constant, not unless something intends it to be.
The atom as we all learned at one point or another in our days of schooling is the basic building block of every physical thing in the universe. Now to think for a second that your mind in a way can control the activity of a single atom is pretty remarkable. What do you think is stopping your mind from controlling every atom?
Let’s change direction for a bit and get a better understanding of a dream. I’m sure some of you out there are lucid dreamers, or at least have lucid dreamt before. I bet a lot of you even had more lucid dreams as a kid. I know I did. I use to fly and float around in my dreams on a regular basis. Do you think that is because as a kid you want to be able to fly more? The idea of lucid dreaming if you don’t know and haven’t figured it out is to become aware that you are the one creating your dreams, which allows you to do things in them as you please. It seriously is such a beautiful concept. The sad thing for me is, normally shortly after becoming consciously aware in a dream I wake myself up from the excitement.
Regardless of whether you lucid dream or not, most of us dream. If you have trouble remembering your dreams or want to expand your memory of dreams try this. Before you go to bed at night recap your entire day. From when you woke up until you laid down for bed. Try and remember every little detail you can. A song you listened to on the way to work. Who was in line behind you at the grocery store. That lady who arrived at the laundry mat after you used a ten dollar bill to get quarters for the machines. That the person in front of you at the red light before your house had a license plate ending in 0007. And there was a Land Rover and a Hummer at the gas station you passed on your way home. You get the idea.
Basically all of these things tune your awareness and literally expands it. You will be surprised shortly after not only how much more of your day you remember the more you do this, but also your dreams. After you awaken, recap your dreams. If anything this will make your dreams feel more vivid.
As far as we know, each person’s dreams’ are theirs alone. Maybe this has something to do with how they can be controlled in the way of their observer, like an atom in reality. Also when you’re inside a dream until it becomes lucid everything that is happening no matter how inane or far fetched it is, you believe it to be real.
I decided to come up with this post today while I was lying out by the pool alone, starring up at the clouds. I noticed some low flying ones that appeared to be closer than normal. I’ve experimented before (successfully) with cloud bursting. Cloud bursting is the act of making clouds disappear through intent. I went a different route with these clouds I saw, I made them switch the direction they were moving. Not just back and forth, different angles. I’d say I moved them about 15 times in the course of a minute. Now I know most people reading this can’t possibly believe that this could happen without documented proof. It took me forever to find, but I think I found it…
So I’ve been thinking more and more about the thought process that leads up to a coincidence occurring, and the thought that is in the mind at the exact moment one takes place. I think there is a definite correlation between what physically happens and the conscious thought during its occurrence.
A little while back after I started meditating, I went hiking with a friend to meditate out on this big rock.
Shortly after getting on top of this rock my friend and I were getting situated and this butterfly shows up. He landed on my shoe and began flapping his wings a bit. We both acknowledged it because it appeared to be waving to us with his wings. Then out of no where he flies off all around right above my shoes as if he was just surging with energy, eventually flying off into the woods. A few minutes later he returns and lands on my shoes again. This time I pulled out my camera and took a picture of him because he seemed to be posing.
After one of my other friends told his mother this story and showed her the picture she explained how some people believe butterflies can sometimes be past relatives trying to communicate with us. I had both of my grandfather’s pass away about a year before this and also less than 3 months apart from each other. My friend’s mother suggested maybe it was one of them saying hello. With that said.
My brother and I exchanged stories a couple days ago about how we thought our one grandfather might have been trying to communicate with us. Mine was because two separate times I entered my grandmother’s apartment and I felt like I was floating through the hallway not even touching the ground. His being that he was looking for electrical tape(that was my grandfather’s) and he couldn’t find it one week but than a week later he saw it in a spot he was certain he had checked the week prior.
Well this afternoon I’m driving home on the turnpike from a wedding and the brief thought of my brother’s story about the electrical taped popped in my head, just as I saw a butterfly come at my windshield and then over top of my car. This minor coincidence is what sparked the idea of tonight’s blog about paying attention to the thought that takes before or during a coincidence to try and make better sense of it.
I was over my mother’s house after this, helping her out with a few things and decided to help her clean out her refrigerator. I removed the glass shelf and handed it to her. She begins wiping it down while I’m cleaning the inside of the fridge. I take the drawer out that sits underneath the glass she is cleaning and am getting ready to hand it to her. I paused and waited till she was done because I didn’t want her to drop and break the glass.
At that exact moment I watched the glass shatter and explode right in front of me! She did not hit it on anything. I checked the water she was using to make sure it wasn’t too hot for the colder glass. The temperature of the water was actually colder than warm. We both had no other explanation for it other than it spontaneously exploded. Glass was everywhere. She was too stunned to move. All she could think was that I wouldn’t have believed it exploded had I not been starring at it when it happened. She was right. We barely talked for next 5 minutes. During the entire clean up process all she could say was “Unbelievable.” To which I would respond with “Believable.”
To make this even better, I get home and it’s obviously still on my mind. My roommate is in the kitchen with me and I’m putting away some of the stuff my mother gave me in the fridge. And the moment I go to bring up the exploding glass story I knocked off this Neosporin tube from on top of the refrigerator but it somehow (the fridge) gracefully caught it. My first thought, “Unbelievable.”
Reality is not only stranger than you think, it's stranger than you can think.
I don’t see it being that much longer until I can remove the veil of what this blog is really about. I almost have to since I rarely have coincidences pertaining to my life that isn’t directly related to my ever-growing field of research, nothing worth blogging at least.
I played racquet ball for the first time in about 3 years on Sunday. I love racquet ball and since I joined this new gym I can enjoy racquetball again. :)
Monday at work, our design guy was walking by me and stopped suddenly. He paused for a moment and then said “You know… I really wish I could play racquetball again.” He’s older and has MS so it’s kind of out of the question. I told him how I played for the first time in 3 years the day before. He didn’t care. He just wanted to play racquetball.
Although that is a fairly unique coincidence, that’s about the extent of the everyday mundane occurrences I have. There is the whole other world of happenings that as lame as it is to say, I don’t think the majority of you are ready for. Some of you reading this already know what I’m talking about.
And the funny thing about the research I’ve been doing is it wasn’t until I acknowledged how many I was having that were directly related to my research that the bigger ones in mundane life slowed down. Kind of makes sense though because I was getting to the point of about 1 major and a couple minor ones each day. They can be a little overwhelming at times. Here’s another one I had which may seem a little more odd but the fact that I didn’t blog it when it happened a couple weeks ago might help you to understand how less relevant it to be for me.
One of the guys I work with randomly brought up the show ‘Pawn Stars’ and some other show about storage auctions. He was explaining to me the premise of it and how the guys on the show try and find hidden treasure in peoples junk.
I started to take a new way to work to avoid construction and passed a Thrift Store I had forgotten about. After hearing the guy at work talk about the shows I knew I wanted to go to the thrift store. At that moment (while he’s still explaining) I grabbed a pen and wrote this on my hand to remind myself to stop on the way home.
Before I could put the pen down the guy I was talking to said, “Have you ever been to that thrift store…” I walked over to him and showed him my hand. He said “What? What is that, TS, I just saw you write that on your hand…” I said “TS, stands for Thrift Store, and that’s to remind me to stop after work.”
I’m going to have to stop myself before I say too much, but I will end with a quote by Arthur Eddington (see title of post)
Apparently I wasn’t supposed to post what I had written for something I came up with at 5am (yet). Long story short, I was reminded, coincidentally, of this happening. So I changed my post, but still refused to change the title.
I went to get my haircut one afternoon about six years ago. I returned to my car after and looked in the mirror to check the results. As I was brushing a little hair off my forehead and ears I thought I brushed some hair into my ear. Didn’t think much of it and then headed home to shower.
While in the shower I felt like I had gotten water stuck in my ear. I began grabbing my nose and blowing as hard as I could, but could not shake that water out of my ear. I even tried walking around head banging but to no avail. It was bothering me because the water felt stuck in there, and every time I moved I could hear it moving around. So finally I stood in front of the mirror and knew I had to get it out. I grabbed my nose and blew as hard as I could, tilting my head. Finally the water cleared out. I stuck my finger in my ear and felt what I thought was a clump of hair from my haircut, and it even looked like a clump of hair. But it was actually a dead spider.
As gross as it sounds I was thrilled more than anything. It occurred to me even at that time how much worse it could have been. Had it not happened directly after I got my haircut, I might not have went directly home and showered. And it was the water that brought the spider out. I was living with my brother at the time and knew there was no way he was going to believe me, so I saved the spider to show him. There might even be a picture of it floating around in an old phone, but that was about 4 phones ago so who knows.
It looks like I’ll have to wait for another time to explain Event Horizon. But I am starting another Blog along side of this one that will allow me to do some creative writing. I’ll post a link after I start it.
YouTube has basically endless amounts of information and documentaries on whatever the subject is. Dr. Bruce King has a YouTube channel with a lot of good information on consciousness. I stumbled upon one of his videos a couple months ago and have been a subscriber ever since. In one of his videos he discusses the importance of the number 444 and how it was occurring in his life. Later that day after watching his video I too had an incident of the number 444.
I was waiting for my gym partner to get off work. I couldn’t decide whether or not I should go running in the park nearby or wait for him and run after. While waiting for him to text me back I looked at my phone to see it was 4:44pm. Since I had not heard from him yet I decided that I was going to go running simply because of the thought of Dr. King’s video with 444 in it that I had watched earlier. So I went for my run.
One of the funny things about the whole timing of my day was that shortly after I started my run I came across a snake in the middle of the trail. And since I can’t be normal about anything I decided to grab a stick and move it off the path. Then I continued on my run without another hitch. After my workout I remembered I needed to stop at the grocery store for three things, Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Bread. One of the guys from work and I got into talking about it because he primarily eats organic food and is also a vegetarian. I love Peanut Butter and Jelly, yet always forget to buy it. So this was the sole purpose of this trip to the store. I spent literally five or ten minutes examining all the different organic food, mainly peanut butters and jellies. After deciding I wasn’t ready to experiment with them yet I went and got the regular stuff. I head to the self-checkout line like I normally do with minimal items. That’s when I hear my name called and look up to see another friend from the gym. I hadn’t seen him in a couple weeks and he told me how he had just got back from his second honeymoon. That’s when I remembered the last conversation him and I had. A tree had fallen over in his backyard onto another one and he was asking me if I knew of anyone who did tree removal or even pricing. So I asked him if he had ever gotten it taken care of. He told me he had half of it removed but funny that I mention it because he was thinking about taking down the rest tree after he went home.
The next thought that jumps in my head is of another guy from work that had injured his leg with a chainsaw the week before. He did it while cutting down branches in his backyard and received numerous stitches. So then my friend at the grocery store says something along the lines of “it’s getting dark out and it’s a little wet out, maybe I should wait” I replied with “you should absolutely wait.” Then I told him the story about the guy at work and we both agreed that he should wait.
So many variables led up to that meeting at the grocery store, it’s interesting to think how easily I could have never ran into that friend.
Now I am NOT saying that I saved this guy from cutting himself or hurting himself. What I am saying is that he DID NOT cut himself or hurt himself that day. And that’s good enough for me.
A lot of people claim to see certain numbers often. I was never really a number person until 27:27 (check out my Vector Security blog). I’ve started to ask around with some of my friends to see if they had any numbers that seem to stand out more with them. Some of the responses I received were; 22, 333, and of course 11:11. I am slowly starting to believe these numbers might hold a little bit more information than mere sightings. And the more I try to avoid the number happenings the more they seem to come around, especially 555.
A lot of people like to associate their number occurrences to things like time and price of purchase. I think these types of things occur too often to relate them to some type of coincidence. Especially the lesser amount of digits you have, mainly because it obviously increases the frequency of seeing them, adding to the handicap of its revelation. But it does help to think around the immediate occurrence to see how it came to fruition.
Say your number is 636.
You buy a few groceries and the total comes to $6.36.
You buy a few groceries and the total is $6.36. It holds quite a bit more potential meaning if maybe you bought the groceries with a coupon you had from the newspaper you found on the bus you rode because your car was in the shop after you rear ended someone in traffic when you woke up late for work at 6:36am.
Now I understand that still doesn’t really mean anything, I’m just trying to prove a point. For all we know that number could potentially cause you to do something to save your life or someone else’s someday. Just be aware. I had a coincidence with someone else’s number once. Later that day when I witnessed the number again it caused me to do something which started a chain of events. I uncovered after the fact, how I ran into this friend that day, and the important advice I gave them. Had I not acted on something after hearing someone else’s number I would not have ran into the person I did. And if I run dry for a few days on coincidences I’ll write that one up.
So I am starting to understand to be more aware of numbers now, but it’s hard when we see so many everyday. I began seeing 555 in time and in phone numbers. Well after having a talk with a friend, and was the friend from my last post of Right Place, Right Time. He ended up posting on my Facebook wall a couple days after.
You might get a little insight on what he and I talked about through this song. And also I would like to add with the 555 likes on this video, I was the 555th.
I was explaining this to a friend at work almost bragging because his number is ‘22’ and mine (currently) is 555. I had to walk away after looking behind him because what I saw was telling me that your number doesn’t show up so you can brag about it.
And for the record, where these containers were stacked, was in the area of the warehouse where they are ONLY stacked in ones. And I can’t stress ONLY enough. But, Oddly enough they were stacked in threes that day.
So take your vitamins, don’t forget to floss, and pay more attention to numbers kids.
I think some of my favorite coincidences, no matter how big or small they are, are the ones that happen when talking about them.
I decided to go against what I should have done Sunday. My options were to go up to my grandparent’s place on the river or go golfing with the bachelor party I was with the night before. I went with neither because I just felt like I shouldn’t be at either, that’s the best I can explain it. Anyway, I ended up meeting my friend and his girlfriend out at this lake not too far from where we live.
It wasn’t too long after we were there, that my coincidence talks made their way into the conversation. So I start off rambling about my ideas, beliefs, and religion. I have said before that certain things happen while I’m talking about this stuff to people and the ‘stuff’ that happens is almost like a sign saying “HEY! I like where this is going… keep it up.” or I even like to think of it (which is what I believe I was saying at the time) that when weird stuff or coincidences happen, they are like little miracles happening. It makes you feel more alive when you acknowledge them. As if they’re trying to tell you that at least for that moment that you were meant to be exactly where you are. At this point I look up and see this, and let me just say for the past hour of the day it was mostly all cloudy and looking as if it were going to rain.
It literally looked like it was shinning directly onto us
I paused for a second and seriously smiled completely inside and out. My friends were in shock, and I would have been shocked if they hadn’t been. I looked at my friend and said “you know what that is? That’s God letting us know he’s liking our conversation.” So I took out my camera and took a couple pictures. My friend said “let me guess, this is going in your blog?” I replied “…most likely.” I put my phone down and as I do I look up to see the man about 20 feet away from us lose his inflatable raft from a rogue gust of wind. I immediately bolted up ran at it, bear hugged it and gave it to the man. Everyone was just laughing and as I sat back down next to my friends I said “like I said, right place at the right time.” Then I took one last picture of the sky I saw a couple minutes before.
I started listening to a mp3 CD yesterday that I haven’t played in awhile. A song called ‘End of the world’ by Armor for sleep came on. And when it was almost over I hit repeat so I could listen to it the full way through.
As the song ended I saw a shooting star during the in between song silence. It was special in it’s own moment.
The next song by Armor for sleep begins to play as the star fades away. I look down to see it’s name. ‘Stars in your eyes.’
One of the songs from one of the bands on one of the CDs you never listen to. I really like that song now.
I talk UFC and mixed martial arts with one of the guys at work. Today I started a conversation with him explaining to him that the fighter Nate Marquardt had ‘lost his contract’ with the UFC since that was what I originally heard, due to an illegal ‘diuretic.’ This sounded odd to the both of us.
A few minutes later when I saw him again he said “I bet it was cocaine.” Which kind of made sense, maybe the nice way for Dana White(UFC President) to release him without humiliation. This sounded like the case to me and I thought so even more moments later while walking by another co-workers radio. I over heard three words of a song "bag of cocaine." I had never heard before. And it was playing on the 70s Sirius satellite station. Later I looked it up and found it was from a song by Ringo Starr called No No Song. Even though now I’ve read that the UFC fighter admitted he was on Hormone Replacement Therapy, which was doctor prescribed.
The best part about it was looking up the song lyrics later:
A lady that i know just came from columbia, She smiled because i did not understand. Then she held out some marijuana, ha ha! She said it was the best in all the land.
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don’t smoke it no more, I’m tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door.”
A woman that i know just came from majorca, spain, She smiled because i did not understand. (parazzi! Parazzi!) (ole!) Then she held out a ten pound bag ofcocaine, She said it was the finest in the land.
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don’t sniff it no more, I’m tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door.”
A man that i know just came from nashville, tennessee, oo, (oh no!) He smiled because i did not understand. Then he held out some moonshine whiskey, oh ho, He said it was the best in all the land. (and he wasn’t joking!!!)
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don’t drink it no more, I’m tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door.”
Well, i said, "no, no, no, no, i can’t take it no more, I’m tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door.”
"i’ll just have another drink, barman, have you got a large brandy?"
…It’s nice to know the word "cocaine" only appears in the song once.
I knew I was in desperate need of a good run today since the majority of my weekend was spent sitting/laying around and educating myself on worldly matters. I had noticed recently the frequency of coincidences I was having (the ones I don’t mind to make public) the past couple weeks have started to dwindle. I’m assuming the reason being that I haven’t posted some more important ones. Then one snuck up on me.
So I run at a local park several times a week after work. Normally my routine is 2 – 4 miles depending on how sweaty I feel like getting. Today I told myself I was doing 6. I usually run down to the 2nd bridge and back because each way is 1 mile, so I’ll do that a couple times. As I’m starting my 5th mile my Pandora begins acting up. It just kept loading song after song but wouldn’t play. I wasn’t sure if it was the app itself or the internet that was having problems. So I took my frustration out on my Facebook Status.
I end up turning my phone off and just start the rest of my run. When I get down to the bridge I decide to turn my phone back on see if Pandora is ready to cooperate. It does, for a few moments. It begins playing about 15 seconds worth of a song then switches on it’s own, takes a minute to load, then busts out another 15 seconds of another song, soon after it just goes silent for a couple minutes. I’m waiting and waiting for a song to come on since I notice my feet slowing down with no beat for them to keep.
Then the only way I can describe what happens next is that I decide to start singing a song I making up in my head about how bad I want my music to come back on and if it does I’ll run my heart out. Just as I finish my made up verse, Pandora jumps back on with literally my favorite song of all time, Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve. I’m literally in a state of disbelief and smiling and just think in my head. “…well I can’t lie about running my heart out after that.” I take off twice as fast as I thought I would be able to go at that point. It felt great, painfully great. So then after I finish my last mile I’m panting a bit from my sprint, and I hurry up and open Pandora up so I can take a screen shot of the song while it’s up. I then notice that I was on one of my Pandora stations that didn’t have the song ‘thumbs up.’ Which was odd in itself, so I clicked it and took the picture (which I use the app Shootme, very convenient you just have to shake the phone).
Then I’m thinking to myself “Okay, big deal. So my favorite song played and I ran and now I’m out of breath.” The moment I finish saying that, Pandora cuts out again. And a new song immediately starts. Not just any song though, my 2nd favorite song of all time, Mad World by Gary Jules.
Which if isn’t odd in itself still, well then let’s look at what I posted on Facebook last night.
At that point I simply said to myself. “Okay, good run.”
*And I just realized after reading through my post that you can see I took the screen capture of the first Facebook status at 5:51pm before Mad World plays at 5:52pm but you can see the Mad World status mentioned in the first screen capture. Kinda Funny. Especially because the original post was me thinking Pandora was playing childish games. Pretty well planned out childish games if you ask me. :)
I love using coincidences as a sign of fate. Simple miracles in their own. Especially when they happen with friends shortly after discussing them.
This isn’t something I discuss with very many friends. Usually because coincidences are just the tip of the iceberg of what’s really on my mind. But it is fun when one takes place shortly after a talk with someone about them. And since I don’t talk to a variety of friends about them, it almost feels like someone is trying to tell us “I like where this is going and you should too.”
I remember saying to my friend, “when was the last time you had a coincidence?”
He replied with, “ummm I can’t remember, but I probably will after having this talk.”
My response, “I guarantee you will.”
We were at the park and went to eat directly after. And let me just say the two are .2 miles from each other. Adds to the improbability :)
I had sent him an email the day before to give this blog’s address. He lives in Beijing and is also 12 hours ahead.
If this is your first time reading my blog it might make more sense to start at the beginning.
This has turned into a pretty nice coincidence if I do say so myself. And I’m so happy I waited to put this up because It didn’t really hold any real meaning to me rather than a weird coincidence and fun story to tell friends.
Until I dug a little deeper…
One of my best friends tells me on a Friday night that he had a 2 hour interview with Vector Security Systems. He doesn’t go into much detail but I keep it in the back of my mind. I arrive at my gym(which is also a dek hockey rink) the following Monday after work as I normally do a little after 4pm. There are 2 other cars in the parking lot when I arrive. As I’m walking in I notice a sign I’ve never acknowledged before for Vector Security. I thought it would be funny to send a random picture to my friend that went on the interview. So I do.
As you can see my friend responded to the picture with “I’ll be there later” as in he had a hockey game later that night.(he knows I’m at the gym everyday after work) So I head on in and start my workout. Probably a half hour into my workout I look out the large window upstairs where the gym is and see this.
That is my white car on the right, and directly next to me, who else but Vector Security. I’m starting to love these guys! So I text my friend knowing there’s no way he got the job that quick, and they gave him a work van. I was almost positive he wasn’t even applying for that type of position. Which he simply responds with laughter. Well I even took a video(which i cut into a panorama, and sorry if it looks awkward there was a pillar I had to deal with while panning.) of the scene because it’s important to understand the length of the parking lot. So not counting the handicap spot I am the 5th spot off center). And if you’re wondering why I parked so far away if the parking lot was basically empty. It was because my workout partner wasn’t going to be at the gym til 5pm. So I wanted to sit in my car and read and not be bothered when other cars pulled in and players getting ready to play hockey)
Anyway… And I apologize for the cro-magnon panorama
So this is where the story ended as of the other night before my last two posts. And it bothered me that it was all really weird but in the end it all really meant nothing. I was destined to put some kind of meaning to it and let me tell you how good it felt last night when I finally did.
I’m talking to my friend that this coincidence is about and we’re discussing our weekends and what we have going on this week like normal. And I know I planned on updating my blog with this coincidence and something kept telling me I had to reread some more of ‘The Spontaneous Fullfillment of Desire’ by Deepak Chopra. So while I’m talking to my friend it is sitting next to my bed as it has since I stopped reading it. Well I was explaining to my friend how important the mantras and what not are in it and that they really are what started me in to mediation, before that I thought it was a silly waste of time. Well he ends up also convincing me I need to get back to it so shortly after I get off the phone with him I open up to where my bookmark was, which was within the last 30 or so pages that I thought were a bunch of citations and definitions. Less than a minute into reading I read this "When people are truly in tune with each other, they often experience synchronicity in their relationship." The moment I read this I knew it was why I opened the book. The meaningless coincidence just hit me in the face. It really made sense since we’ve meditated together multiple times and have explored and shared so much information together about these and similar topics.
But with just that quote, I still wasn’t satisfied for some reason. I need some more reinforcement. So I’ve always had the number ‘27’ in the back of mind I guess from the text message this friend sent me the important night of the coincidence.
And by the way, this coincidence should also be an advertisement for Deepak and Smartphones.
apparently our conversation that night talking about the coincidence was 27 minutes long and 27 seconds. Odd. So naturally I wouldn’t forget about something like that. Next thing you know I’m doing some more counting.
I called my friend back after reading this but sadly he was sleeping and didn’t answer.(so much for being in sync with each other) When my phone went to his voicemail, I left a message briefly explaining how ‘upset’ I was that my ‘insync’ friend didn’t answer. And when I ended the call, of course what time was it? 1:27am…
But… When he finally spoke to me the next morning he did have a good explanation. When he called me that night originally, and convinced me to read the book. He informed me that he had called at 11:27pm.
Now people can claim that coincidences don’t mean anything, and that people only see what they want to see… But I suggest they dig a little deeper. Eventually I’ll be posting a coincidence that originates from 2001 & 2005, so if you enjoyed this one at all you may want to subscribe. :-)
So I began reading the Deepak Chopra book I mentioned in my last post from the point I had my book mark in(which the last post was let’s just say ‘minutes ago.’) And I put meaning behind a coincidence with the friend who the coincidence was about, who also was the friend that I had the Epiphany with from my last post.
The quote I read that gave the coincidence true meaning was ’ when people are truly in tune with each other then they experience synchronicity in their relationship.’ It’s a pretty crazy story because I took pictures of the event before it ended up as a coincidence. And had I not taken the first picture as a joke, I probably wouldn’t have this blog.
Just be sure to read my ‘Vector Security’ post that I’ll put up in the next day or so.
I finally had some free time this weekend to update with my recent coincidences, but realized after talking to a friend that I really need to reread a Deepak Chopra book first. Or at least get back some old mantras so they’re fresh in my head for meditation. Let’s just say they pop the tops off on a case of canned worms.
-The Spontaneous Fullfillment of Desire by Deepak Chopra
I guess you could say I’ve done a lot of waking up in the past couple months. Found out what I really want in/from life. And it feels amazing.
This blog was created because I’m starting to become more aware of coincidences taking place with me, and people I’m with. But mainly just me :)
I’ve always been in tune to them, but use to only acknowledge what took place. It wasn’t until recently that I started to understand the probability behind them. I remember times of having coincidences happen with friends and they wouldn’t even give it a second thought at which point I would merely say ‘coincidences are like road signs. You don’t necessarily have to follow them if you know where you are going in life, but it is stupid to not at least acknowledge them.’ I honestly never knew why I came up with that quote until recently.
better quote I like now ‘when the unexpected, expects you.’
I wanted to name this first post simply ‘coincidence’ but have come to like the word synchronicity, because it sounds more important and tumblr.com doesn’t have it in their spell check… yet. Also I have been using ‘divine fate’ or similar instances because some Religions are allergic to the word coincidence. I’ll use whatever word someone wants to describe what I know happened. They can place whatever word they want there, as long as they understand what physically took place.
In the next couple days I’ll be updating my blog with some of the more major coincidences that happened to me which ultimately caused me to start this. Then eventually I’ll just be updating my new events. I hope everyone can take… somethingfrom this. Thanks!
Feel free to email me privately any coincidences you have, because I absolutely love hearing them. email@example.com
