How To Get A Car Parking Space Using The Power Of Coincidence

As you will have gathered from this blog I'm interested in coincidence and synchronicity. I'm even more interested to see if it's possible to make such things occur consciously. A lot of coincidences don't appear have any apparent value - though some do, especially after writing them down or dwelling on them for a while.

One easy(ish) way to test out coincidences is with car parking! It's something I've done for ages.

I don't like going in official car parks (object to having to pay!) so I try to find space in side roads that are convenient to wherever I want to visit. Before I set out I 'request' that a perfect parking space will be made available for me.

Yes, it does sound a bit nutty but the strange thing is that a parking space is usually made available to me. Another car may just leave at that very moment I arrive or everywhere will be stacked with cars except for one space perfect for my car.

It happens over and over again.

Arundel castleA good example was when my wife and I visited Arundel on a sunny day when there was a street music festival taking place (that's Arundel castle on the right). The only place to park was in the official car parks as everywhere else had been made no parking areas.

We arrived after events had started and the car parks were jam packed full. People were driving round and then leaving the car park. I did a circuit once and then, instead of leaving, 'asked' for a space.

I was following another car and he suddenly stopped and waved me on - he wanted to let his wife get out of the car - I overtook him and immediately another car drove away from a parking space and I was able to drive in and park. Plus it was right near the center of all of the attractions - perfect.

I know this all sounds far fetched but give it a try for yourself.

When I say 'ask' for a parking space I mean to request one from whatever/whoever you feel comfortable with: the universe, your inner self or subconscious, the cosmic, God, an angel or saint, infinite spirit or virtually anything. As I see it the important thing is to actually ask. It can all happen inside your head or you can make the request aloud. This seems to make no difference.

Try it. It's a bit like the Bible says: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find ..."

    I had a coincidental connection with a similar Bible verse:

    Mark 11:23-24

    Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.

    "Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you."

  3. I am very bad in finding parking so next time I will try "requesting" for a space too. It can't hurt.

  4. AVCr8teur: Thanks for the comment - yes, give it a try and hope it works for you.

  5. A few years ago I started keeping a record in which I wrote down all of things I had intentionally created in life and I have many examples. But by far the most common trend is getting parking spaces exactly where I want them.

    Is'nt it fun?

    I live in a small neighborhood with only one busy intersection connecting two towns and every time I'm in the car with my mom, when we start heading for the intersection, my mom always says, "see it in your mind, no traffic, no red light, no waiting." when we reach the light it is just turning green and, of course, there is no traffic. I always thought it was so bizarre
