New York!!! New York!!! Friendship, Fun, Synchronicity - Don't Be Afraid To Dream!
"This is a re-blog celebrating one year anniversary of my visit to New York! For several years¬†my soul friend who lives in England and I have talked¬†about meeting in New York.¬†We have known each other since¬†we were 14 years old and even though¬†we don't see or talk to¬†each other regularly, we keep each other¬†close within our hearts. Over the last¬†four years, several opportunities have presented itself but none that materialized until¬†the Labour Day Weekend in 2013. ¬†Since I believe in synchronicity¬†and¬†believe that dreams do come true, I thought I would blog about the various events that happened in a whirlwind that made that dream come true. Four years ago, the idea of the trip to New York came up.¬† We put it out there to the universe with the intention that we would be able to do this one day.¬† Margot spoke very dearly about her aunt in New York and I have always wanted to meet her. Several weeks ago, my friend Gie told me about a bus trip to New York from Ottawa for the Labour Day weekend.¬† It sounded interesting but I was not sure I wanted to do it. Several weeks ago, Margot and I explored for me to come up to England to spend summer with her but that did not materialize because of some other priorities. However, the longing to see each other was there and she was constantly on my mind over the last few weeks. Last Thursday,¬†August 29th, we spoke over the phone and she suddenly asked, ""What about meeting in New York for the¬† long weekend?"" It suddenly dawned on me that the bus trip for the Labour Day Weekend was happening on Friday (August 30th) and maybe I could get on that trip.¬† Within 24 hours,¬†we had booked ourselves to arrive in New York.¬† I would¬†bus for 7 hours and she would fly for 7 hours¬†- the alignment was perfect!!!!¬† We were on our way to meet each other. It was a fabulous weekend.¬† We explored Brooklyn, got lost and ¬†found, had long soulful conversations; caught up on the last 25 years; got beauty treatments; met her aunts in New York; ¬†walked over the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan which was ¬†an adventure; ¬†laughed so hard that tears streamed from our eyes;¬†reconnected with someone¬†I had not seen for over 20 years; enjoyed the¬†Labour Day celebrations on Eastern¬†Parkway¬†and enjoyed¬†hanging out without much of an agenda except to be together.¬† Being present with each other was beautiful. This experience reminded me how important it is for us to simply have dreams and intentions.¬† Sometimes, having a specific timeline for things to happen is useful but if we trust that the¬†universe will provide all things to us, then we must also trust that there is also Divine Timing.¬† Sometimes, it requires sitting it out and being patient; sometimes it requires taking action steps until it happens and sometimes the forces of synchronicity kick into place when that Divine Timing seems to be right. I love it when there is such beautiful synchronicity and all the pieces fall in place effortlessly. I experience synchronicity¬†regularly ¬†and¬† each time it happens, it ¬†further reaffirms for me that we simply need to dream and let go.¬† Every thought we have becomes an intention and becomes a part of our inner world.¬† The manifestation of those thoughts happen when the universal forces become aligned with our internal world - I trust that Divine Timing happens when all things align from a mental, emotional and spiritual inner space.¬† The universe cannot respond to us fully, until we are ready ourselves.
