Searching for My Higher Power - III

The story starts here ......... Searching for My Higher Power - I
and continues here ............ Searching for My Higher Power - II

* * * * * * *

So I started reading the Celestine prophecy.

It’s fiction but very interesting…using google I found groups that are dedicated to the ‘insights’ that are the focus of the book.

The first insight is that…there is a ‘spiritual awakening’ beginning to take place on the planet…and that..individuals are sort of ‘led toward’ this awakening by ‘mysterious coincidences’ that take place in our lives…I had one happen not too long ago…. I have this friend…she and I have always said that we ‘scare’ one another…we rarely see each other..or even contact one another at all….and sometimes…out of the blue, I will begin thinking of her…and within a short period of time, she will call and say ‘lets do lunch’…or visa-versa…well…not more than a few weeks ago…I woke from a dream that she was in…I haven’t spoken to her in months….I told my husband about the dream…short time later, I get on the p.c. and check my emails…there is one from her…she sent it while I was sleeping…the email simply said ‘I miss you :( ’

Welll…..the book puts forth the notion that…these synchronistic events…things that really cannot be related..but somehow seem to be…are important…and the more aware we are of them…the more they will occur…and that they are relevant to our ‘spiritual journey’, which is, after all, the reason we are here.

I loved this idea….and remembered a book that I read long ago entitled ‘there are no accidents’ where the author told many short stories from people he had interviewed about remarkable synchronistic events – I remember one….some guy who lived on the east coast was set up on a blind date with some girl…they met but didn’t hit it off….many years later…this guy is living on the west coast…still single..and some friends set him up on a blind date with some girl…he shows up and it is HER. I don’t recall how it ended :) but…the story was remarkable to me…and implies (to me) that there is SOMETHING…some force (that we cannot see) at play…

Then I remembered the book…’ambushed by god’….and…more and more I began to become aware of events (large and small) that are occurring in my life each day.

The second insight talks about a new world view..where humankind becomes less materialistic and seeks a deeper meaning to life.

The third insight is about energy and started talking about all things having auras that people can actually see…it got sort of weird for me..and my reading sort of tapered off..

THEN I discovered that there was ANOTHER book….that talked about the insights and was NOT a novel…it was entitled ‘The Celestine Vision: Living the new spiritual awareness’….so I bought it.

Loved it.

First insight….also talked about how…when we encounter people…we should be openminded…that..people are put in our path for an exchange…so…listen to what they are ‘giving’ us…and seek what you are to ‘give’ others that you encounter.

Second insight…I don’t recall too much.

Third insight…they started talking about auras again…that you can REALLY see them….I was intrigued…but again…too weird….I was reading about this when I forgot the book in a hotel room…funny that it was at the third insight (same as when I stopped reading the OTHER book)…I figured it was a ‘sign’…and let it go.

A few weeks later, I was at the monthly meeting of my book club…I was talking to a nurse who started telling me about some ‘course’ that she had just finished…on ‘energy healing’…she was talking about some of the physicians who were there…and mentioned seeing auras.

Huh?

She loaned me a book…which I have yet to open.
That was nearly a year ago.

p.s....the friend that emailed me last month....I haven't gotten together with her either.

To be continued……..
