I love playing a game with the Universe that I simply call, Coincidence. When I quietly call for one, it undoubtedly appears—as long as I’m on the alert. When it occurs, I get tingles.
Experiencing an odd, unlikely repetition of events gives one a sense that they were purposefully coordinated. I enjoy pondering the meanings behind any symbols I see when these special fates visit me.
I experienced a coincidence recently in Honolulu as I was waiting for my bike to be fixed. But it was seeded, unbeknownst to me, on 19th Street in Brooklyn on the last day of a recent stay in New York. I had all my belongings packed for my trip home to Honolulu and decided to take a short walk. While out, I encountered a single playing card on the sidewalk from the game Uno; number 1. For some reason I picked it up and used it as a bookmark.
Once I got to Hawaii, I was walking my friend’s dog down Aawakea Avenue when I spotted another single Uno card lying in the street, this one, number seven. What does a coincidence like that mean? I’ve tended to notice that coincidences happen when I’m in a state of flux or worry. They leave me with a reassuring feeling that an intelligence is communicating with me.
Seven plus one equals 8, a number of new beginnings, infinite possibilities, balance and justice and contracts. I signed the lease on my new apartment a week later!
