Carol's Current Column

by Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

Carol Adrienne's work and teachings have been a great inspiration to me!  In August of 1998, about four months after my father passed away, I read about one of Carol's workshops in a Learning Annex catalog and synchronistically found her book on a bookshelf at the bookstore.  The themes of her teachings were familiar and comforting, as they confirmed the thoughts and ideas my father had shared with me shortly before his passing.  Her books and workshops ignited my spiritual curiosity, setting me on my soulful life path, which led to the very creation of SoulfulLiving.com!  Carol's participation has been an integral part of SoulfulLiving.com, at its soul level!  Thank you, Carol, with all my heart!

Synchronicity in Action

Last month Steve Cooper, our band leader friend from Chicago, related stories of how he picks up information from license plates that seem to answer questions he is currently holding in his mind. Just as I was preparing to write this column, Steve emailed to report more "breaking" synchronicities that show how our intention does produce results.

Setting an Intention

"James Redfield was recently appearing for a book signing sponsored by Transitions Bookstore in Chicago. As I walked to the Learning Center where the event was happening, I made a mental note that I would like to meet James one-on-one so I could share with him that my stories were on the Celestine Journal website in February. As I was walking through the shopping center, I had an overwhelming thought to go to the mens room even though I really didn't need to use the facilities. I turned away to walk toward the Learning Center, but something pulled me back and I went to the bathroom in the shopping center anyway. As I opened the door, who was on the other side of the door but James Redfield! I got to tell him about the website and ask him some questions.

"I then walked to the Learning Center. As I approached the door, a shuttle car with James Redfield pulled up, and for the second time in five minutes, I opened the door again for him. I thought - what a coincidence.

The Person Sitting Next To You is There for a Reason

"After his lecture, James asked everybody to, ‘Talk to the person next to you - maybe you'll notice a synchronicity.’ I looked at the guy next to me and noticed some music paper in his hand. I told him the song he was holding was a wonderful jazz tune that most people would not be familiar with. He said it was for his wife. It turns out that his wife is the #1 jazz singer in Chicago, someone I have great respect for and someone I always wanted to meet. He's the head of her recording company. I had just made a new CD with my band, and he was able to answer some technical and legal questions for me.

I had also asked James a question about the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 (when my life changed dramatically for the better), and the gentleman sitting next to me had all the answers I was looking for. We became good friends right away. He asked me if I have ever heard of a certain author or speaker. I turned white when he said that! I told him – ‘Not only have I heard of him - I just happen to have a cassette tape of him in my shirt pocket!’ I pulled it out and showed him. I had taped an Art Bell [radio talk show host] show a week before, and put it in my pocket to listen in my car! He couldn't believe it. Then I told him about a book I was writing (about music) and he knew a perfect publisher for me and gave me the address. I guess James was right - the person next to me had some synchronicities for me!

In the Flow We Give and Receive Information Effortlessly

"After the book signing, I walked back to the bookstore. I thought I'd get a hot chocolate. I was walking to the refreshment counter, and walked by a table with three people engrossed in a conversation. I heard them mention the ‘guy at the lecture who asked about the Harmonic Convergence.’ I went up to them and said – ‘Hey, that was me,’ and they invited me to sit down. I did and found them fascinating. We were all on the same wavelength. I was able to answer their questions about various things they were talking about (all related to topics on the new age and human potential movement). then....someone mentioned the name of another researcher and author and wanted to know about him. I reached into my pocket and pulled out another cassette tape I had brought along from a different Art Bell show. I said ‘You won't believe this, but I have a 90-minute tape of the very person you were asking about.’ The funny thing is, neither of the two people I was able to surprise with a tape ever listens to Art Bell! Then they started talking about several different books. It turns out I had recently read every book and was able to tell them a summary of the books.

"I drove home and told my wife about all the coincidences and synchronicities. We were talking a lot, and then I told her I had one more thing to say to her - it was about the article of me on the Celestine website. She said, ‘Wait, I want to tell you about a coincidence I had.’ I cut her off and said ‘I just wanted to tell you I guess I had my '15 Minutes Of Fame'. She gasped, and said ‘That's what I wanted to tell you about.’ Her coincidence was that there was a reference question at the library that day (she's a reference librarian) about the ‘15 Minutes Of Fame’ quote, and then when she got home there was a trivia question on the news about the ‘15 minutes.’ She thought that was a great coincidence, but when I cut her off and said it first, I guess it became a triple coincidence.

Stay Relaxed and Open

"There were lots of other small things that day, but I didn't write them down. I did have a feeling of ‘lightness’ all evening. James said that happens when you're ‘in the flow.’ I really was. I wish I knew how to turn it on and off, but I'm glad it happens and that I have learned to notice it."

Another reader of this Journal site, Rachel, wrote about similar feelings that came over her one time when she was browsing the new age section of a Barnes & Noble bookstore. She says, "I felt I was specifically looking for something in particular but didn't know what. I just knew that it would come to me when I found it. Sure enough my eye landed on a bright blue book. It was the compilation of all twelve of Alice Baileys’ books on discipleship in the new age that she wrote under the guidance of the Adept, Djwhal Khul. I read the book over and over, but couldn't find any more like it. About a year and a half later I was on vacation and at a bookstore. For some reason I just thought of the book and looked for it, and the exact same feeling came over me. I knew it was there, and it was almost as if my eye just caught the binding. After months and months of crossed mail and returns, I gave up hope on finding any more of the books until I forgot about it and then one day I got a package from Lucis Publishing in London. I never really thought about all of this until I read The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight and saw your website. If you know of any links to the books, my address is rzavarella@yahoo.com; I'd really appreciate any additional information. As fascinating as they are to read, it's difficult to take in the information without having feedback from other people." (Since many of our readers are very involved with metaphysical studies, I thought I would include Rachel’s request for more contact with Alice Bailey fans or her books.)

We follow our life purpose whenever we respond to interesting information and take our curiosity one step further. We don’t know where all this might lead us—and the end result is no more important than the journey—but the Universe is furnishing clues to lead us into fruitful new areas.
