Food / Mind / Body

“Coincidence doesn’t exist and goosebumps never lie. Your body already knows the answer.  All you have to do is turn down your spinning mind, and continue to follow all signs.  Because you are always worthy of becoming your best and most actualized self.”

Today is a unique day for me – I get to celebrate the birthday of my girlfriend, but almost more important, I get to celebrate a second chance.  A second chance I needed because I needed to grow, I needed to mature, I needed to get my head out of my ass! We have all heard of the saying ”maybe if the timing was different” or ”right place, wrong time”…you get the point.  We do not always get a second chance…

But something extremely interesting happened this morning.  I received an email from my mother, of a dream she had:

“It was as though your father came back, returned suddenly from some long journey, and he was his young, handsome, sweet, kind, shy, vibrant self.  He walked gently, not wanting to impose himself on anyone.  He was not asking for a thing.  Rather, it seemed as though he was hoping to see that everything was alright.  After a while, I felt that I could trust that he was not going to change again – change back – and I felt that I wanted to spend time with him, just to be around him – like I used to feel.  So, I asked him if he would like to go to a movie with me.  He nodded, “Yes,” and cried happy tears.

When I heard that your father had died, and had been sick for a long while, I was distraught feeling that I would have wanted to go see him, and make peace with him.
It feels as though he came back to me in this dream to let me do just that.”

What are the odds that of all days to have this dream, a dream of second chances, it falls on the very day I am celebrating a second chance of my own?
Some would call this a coincidence.  Some would call it fate. I am not sure what to call it; I just know I can’t ignore it.
We can’t always explain why things happen but we must trust that we have the tools and skills to make the best decision possible at THAT moment.

Following your intuition is a very natural skill yet it alludes most of us. Practice it. Take chances. Take leaps of faith. Do what makes you uncomfortable. Try the thing you DO NOT want to do. Because maybe, just maybe, it will lead you down a path to a second chance.
