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.
