Unusual Parallelism

My sister and l live in opposite sides of the world.

Despite distance the frequency of our radars have managed to stay clear.

We have an unusual connection thru parallel journeys and mental telepathy.

Months go by without communication yet when distress calls our signals automatically connect.


Just the other day while walking at the mall I missed a step and fell to the ground.

I twisted my ankle badly and it took me a while to get back to my senses.

Moments later I receive a message from my sister saying that she had fallen too.

She had just arrived at the emergency room while I had just gotten home.


How odd?! I thought to myself.

After a few exchanges I realized that we both fell at the exact same time!

I am in awe at the synchronicity and parallelism of it all.

I am sure that like myself she began to contemplate on the deeper meaning.


A fall of sorts somehow always jolts me back to my senses.

It’s like the Universe telling me, “get back to your center.”

“Slow down, pause.”

If truth be told, I have been going through a lot of transitions lately.


My mind has been overthinking and at times I’d be running on adrenalin.

That sudden fall broke the cycle of over extending myself.

I believe the same for my sister as well.

She and I have been going through major changes in our journeys.


I am home alone for the next 3 days with my foot elevated.

I admit that it’s hard to stay put physically and mentally.

However, I have to believe that it is necessary therefore, trust is the process.

Just as anyone would take caution before taking a big turn while driving.


I am once again humbled and reminded to take a few steps back and reflect.

For I know that something big is about to unravel as I take that turn.

I see the light from a distance and maybe I am cautioned not to rush.

Rather, to pace myself and walk mindfully as I continue to mend my way back.

I am often asked, "What do you do awake at 3 or 4 am in the morning?"
I get this perplexed look or tone of voice more often than not.
Very few give me a nod of understanding.
Not everyone gets it.

There's a few good things I do daily when I am awake before the crack of dawn.
I embrace the silence.  I pray.  I meditate.
It's only a few hours of the entire day that I am able to be in complete silence.
It's my GOD time.

Dr. Wayne Dyer says that silence is GOD.
I believe him!
It's the time of day I am able to fully hear myself.
I get answers with clarity, signs show up unexpectedly and I just know.

There's really not much to do except to listen.
Go deep within and stay there.
By the time the sun rises, noise sets in and the house wakens.
My moment of bliss silence is gone.

I was recently told, "3 am is sleeping time, I wouldn't know what to do with myself."
I wouldn't know what to do with myself in chaos if I didn't have my GOD time.
We all look forward to different things in life.
For me, the best part of my day really is waking up and being greeted by the silence of the wind.

Not Everything is Broken


It takes a deeper understanding to realize this.

Not everyone will see things the way you do.

It shouldn’t matter.


You don’t owe everyone an explanation.

Very few are worthy of your take of what is broken and what isn’t.

Leave the rest to the wind.


Somewhere deep down inside lies a wonderful part of you.

New Month New Day

It happens.

Sometimes out of the blue.

Other times with fair warning.

Regardless, it is inevitable.


People come and go.

Things change.

The wind blows one way or another.

We all go where we are meant to go.


Look back, move forward.

Rise above ground.

The shift can pull one down.

Best to avoid the ground.


Everyone plans for a rainy day.

I like to plan for sunshine days ahead.

A new month, a new day, a new shift.

Always helps kick off the momentum.
