“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.” Albert Einstein
Much of what makes life so wonderful, so delicious and so meaningful is related or connected to that which we can’t see, touch or feel, sometimes called the mysterious or the extraordinary, as well as to events we call synchronicities. So often, what is considered by some to possibly be a coincidence is considered by others to be a “synchronicity.” Specifically, “synchronicity” refers to events which you might think are coincidences, but which, in your heart and your whole being, you know are too meaningful to have occurred simultaneously, by chance.
Touched by the Extraordinary, a book I wrote and published in 2004, delves into the nature of extraordinary events and demonstrates that when you fill with love and compassion and open your heart to such experiences, it can lead to transformation and healing in your life. Originally written to help heal my patients who were dealing with the loss of a loved one, I expanded the intention of the book to enable you to know that when you harness your intuition and fill with love, you are more apt to experience a wide variety of remarkable or extraordinary events, all of which have the power to help you heal.
The following paragraphs include the kinds of situations which are often considered “mysterious” or “extraordinary.” Many refer to these as “signs,” implying that the event is especially meaningful and personal. When these signs occur, especially after they are requested, they tend to expedite the healing process. In fact, many of my patients who are deeply grieving the death of a loved one, share with me that receiving “signs” from them helps to ease their pain, as well as giving them hope that their loved ones are still with them, though in a different way. They often find this to be extremely comforting.
Such powerful events may include the following experiences in your life: wonderful synchronicities such as your intuition and precognition informing you someone is going to be calling or entering your life within hours, which is exactly what takes place; dreams in which you feel you have engaged in meaningful visits or communication with deceased loved ones or had an intuitive knowing and description of events about to happen; times when you have prayed and then clearly experienced answers to your prayers, including stunning healings.
Other types of “extraordinary encounters” include: hearing a voice which provides a message that saves your life (because you choose to listen to it); feeling the presence of a loved one who has died or experiencing their presence via electric lights and devices being turned on, ringing or blinking, as well as by smelling their favorite flowers, cigarettes, cigars, perfume or coffee (if they were big coffee drinkers).
Additionally, many have shared with me “extraordinary events” which have included seeing (having visions of) or experiencing angels, Masters, and deceased loved ones; also, having near-death experiences; noticing the frequent or atypical appearance of animals, butterflies, dragonflies or birds (such as an eagle, owl or cardinal) which were especially meaningful to a loved one who has died.
