It’s once again time for Synchronicity Friday where I review the moments of synchronicity that I encountered during the last week. It’s been a bit of a slow week, but I’m still reaping the benefits of last week’s synchronicity. I got a phone call within 24 hours of submitting my resume for that part-time job I mentioned last week and have an interview scheduled for next week. I’m really excited about this!
Although I’d never heard her name this time a week ago, I had two completely unrelated people suggest Seane Corn and her work to me this week. This is clearly a yogini that I need to learn more about. I’m fascinated by what I’ve read of her work so far.
I spoke with a body worker and psychologist today who helped to reaffirm my excitement in finding a way to incorporate yoga with coaching as a means of using a body-based practice to help people release emotional blocks. It’s always reassuring to talk to other people who are exploring similar ideas and finding them fruitful.
After writing my post on the Power of Encouragement, this quote came my way as another reminder of what a difference a small bit of encouragement can make.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~Dr Leo Buscaglia
I am continuing to realize what a difference a little encouragement in my working environment would have made to me over the last year. I also continue to realize how often I don’t take the extra moment or two to do the same thing for others, but I am working on trying to make that more of a practice in my life.
A few weeks ago, an intuitive friend of mine was talking about his belief that the major changes that are predicted for 2012 will actually take place earlier than that and that 2012 is really about the completion of the changes. I came across an article titled 2011 is the year! in the most recent online newsletter from The International Center For Reiki Training that says the exact same thing. It was startling to hear my friend’s comments so closely echoed by someone in a different field.
I came across as article this evening entitled How do I actually begin to love myself? that provides some tips to answer the question I recently asked in Loving the enemy. I still have a long way to go in figuring out my own answer to this one, but I am still struck by how closely this article’s title matches my own question.
