If you’ve read any of my posts lately you’ll know the universe has been doing crazy things for me…this happens quite frequently but this time around I’ve actually been able to write about them as they’ve been happening, does that make sense? Normally little things will happen here and there but it’s not enough for me to write a blog post about and be like “hey, look at this thing that happened to me today”. So I don’t mention these little ‘coincidences’ and pieces of fate half as much as I’d like to.
Anyway, like I said, recently lots of crazy things have been happening (the universe has gone into overdrive) and luckily I’ve managed to ‘document’ them in my blog posts and basically freak out like…can you believe this???
I’ve said it before but my religion is basically the universe – Law Of Attraction, fate, karma, ‘coincidences’, mother nature…you name it. I’m not religious but I’m absolutely spiritual – I believe everything happens for a reason and that the universe works in magical and mysterious ways, it makes these things that we call ‘coincidences’ happen and it blows my mind. The thing is, you have to be open to it. If you don’t believe in it, it’s not going to show itself to you – like with most things.
I’m extremely open to it without even trying because it’s just what I believe in – it’s just the way my mind works, it pieces these things together and I’m like wow…the universe really just did that for me.
There’s so many signs, you just have to be open to seeing them. People ask why I get so many when others appear to get none and the answer is simple – you have to be open to noticing them. If the universe is giving you signs and you’re walking around with your eyes closed, what use is that? If the universe is trying to give you things but you have you have your hands behind your back…how are you going to receive anything? Open your hands – palms up! Let the universe place these things into them. Take it.
I don’t mean you should go looking for signs, things come to you when you least expect them to and if you purposely go looking for things, you’re never going to find them. If anything, you’ll just end up ‘creating’ signs in your head and trying to force things that were clearly never there. While you’re doing this, the universe could actually be giving you signs but of course, you’re never going to notice them because you’re too busy making up your own ones in your head. You just have to let it be – get on with your day and life will do it’s thing, the universe will start showing you the way, I promise. I don’t mean it’s going to appear one day and say hi there, this is what you need to do with your life and here’s the answer to all of life’s greatest questions, rather, they’re just little things that allow you to create the bigger picture or give you the answers you didn’t know you were looking for. They show you things you didn’t know were there.
Sometimes, they don’t even necessarily mean anything, they’re just there to show you that things are working the way they should be and that you’re doing good. Sometimes little coincidences will happen to show me a sign and I just sit there and smile to myself, then say a little thank you afterwards because it really does make me happy and it’s nice to know that ‘something’ (whatever it is, some magical force) has my back and is behind me. It’s nice to get these little reassurances and signs that help me or allow me to make decisions when I don’t know which way to go – the signs are always there, you just have to allow yourself to see them.
I feel like because of how long I’ve been open to / aware of it, the signs come to me all the time now, hence why I’m forever coming on here and freaking out at yet another thing the universe has done for me and people are probably thinking wow this girl really is crazy, but oh well. I want to talk about it, I want to let the universe know that I see these things and appreciate them, I want it to know that these little gestures and signs of fate don’t go unnoticed – I see them, please give me more!
I don’t know if this is going to make any sense, but there are some instances where you really see things for the first time and that in itself is a huge sign. Every day things that have been in your life for God knows how long suddenly align like a sequence of coincidences one after another and suddenly this thing that you’ve seen every day for years is staring you in the face like it’s the first time you’ve seen it, and that’s when you finally notice it’s there.
For example, I was in my room playing music that my best friend and I used to love, I was missing her a lot this day and so I was just dancing around my room pretending she was with me and I called out to her and asked her to sing along with me. I have a photograph of her on my dressing table and she’s smiling the biggest smile you’ve ever seen, that photo has been there for 5 years and I see it every day, however…
I was playing this music, spinning around with my eyes shut and when I opened them guess what was staring me right in the face?
The picture of her laughing.
It’s such…it’s something I can’t describe. You have to experience it in order to know what I’m talking about but it’s like, I’ve seen that photograph every day for 5 years but when I opened my eyes it was staring me right in the face like I was meant to see it – I’d asked her to sing along with me and suddenly I’d opened my eyes and all I could see was this photo of her laughing and smiling right in front of my face. Does that make sense? I was meant to see it. I’ve seen it every day for 5 years but today I noticed it because the universe gave me a sign and literally shoved it right in my face, like a little voice telling me “Look! She’s here.”
Another example is something that I spoke about in this post but I’ll try and explain it better here. Originally when I learned about SHINee and Jonghyun, I wanted to get a little tattoo tribute for him because I just felt so compelled to do it. I wanted something for SHINee as a group too but I didn’t know how to incorporate the two ideas so in the end I just stuck with the idea of the little lowercase “j” for Jonghyun and as far as I was concerned, that was the plan. However, the universe had other ideas – let me introduce you to this post where things (unbeknownst to me) came together and I suddenly realised I had a SHINee tattoo on my body without even realising – it all came together like fate. The thing I’d wanted had magically come together without me even having to do anything, the universe made sure it was all in place and gave it to me without me even knowing.
After this, the idea of the “j” tattoo was still in my mind because I still wanted to do it…skip forward to a couple of weeks later when I realised that I could still easily incorporate the “j” into the SHINee tattoo I now had (convenient and coincidental, right?) but I was still undecided of whether to do it or just leave the tattoo as it was. I was thinking about it in my mind and then decided to work on a blog post (based on realisations actually, which is funny in itself). I keep my blog posts in a folder on my laptop but in case anyone ever happened to come across the folder, I named it something random so that people wouldn’t go looking in there. I created the folder over a year ago and when I named it I literally just pressed the first key that my finger happened to touch on the keyboard – this then became the name of the folder.
I’ve used this folder every day for almost two years and have never paid attention to it – I know where it is on my system and so I was just subconsciously clicking my way through in order to get to it, whilst thinking about this tattoo and the whole “j” idea.
Suddenly, I reached the folder and it’s like my mind came to a halt, I stopped thinking and snapped back into reality because something had forced me to. Something had forced me to stop thinking and to pay attention to what was on the screen…and guess what was staring me right in the face?
The name of my blog folder…which just happened to be a lowercase j.
I was speechless.
Like I said, I’ve used this folder every day for nearly 2 years and suddenly, coincidentally, at exactly the right time, the universe shoved it right in my face and said “Look! Pay attention. Look at this right here.” And I noticed it – I’ve used it subconsciously every day but right then was when I actually saw it for the first time. Like I was meant to at exactly that moment.
I said it in my other post and I’ll say it again…if that isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is.
It might sound crazy or it might sound like I’m talking complete rubbish, but it’s something you have to experience in order to understand or believe I guess. It’s crazy. The universe really is crazy in the best way, there’s something in the atmosphere I’m telling you.
Look out for it, magic exists ✨
All my love,
