I know I've said something like this before but it's interesting how the universe helps us when we start looking for, or researching something. It can be quite magical how a book opens up at a specific page or the information will be seen on television or in a newspaper or by a myriad of other ways. I've read that Trish and Rob call this, in respect of books, the library angel.
Sometimes the information comes all by itself but at others it's necessary to put in a request. As I wrote a while back:
I asked the universe how high Mount Everest was. This was way before the Internet but I could have looked this up in an encyclopaedia or something similar. I decided, however, to wait for the 'magical' answer.
The next day the newsagent didn't have my normal daily newspaper so I chose a different one at random. I got to my then desk at work, opened the newspaper up, and there in front of me was an article about someone climbing Everest. It also gave the height of the mountain (29,035 ft)."
Since then I've been in the habit of asking, as the Bible states, "Ask, and it shall be given you."
Recently I had a strange example of this. I had been researching the Roman occupation in Great Britain for something I was writing. That evening I had a feeling I should open a large case I have with books and other bits and pieces from when I was child.
I hadn't opened it for a long time but right on top was a book with the title The Story of Prehistoric and Roman Britain. This provided me with most of the information I wanted.
But here's the strangest bit the next morning there was a letter pushed through my door from a neighbour. Here's the beginning of the letter:
As you can probably read it starts off: "History. When the Roman's came to G.B. they built Hadrian's Wall ..."
The gentleman has never sent me a letter before and he doesn't know about this blog or that I was wanting information about the Romans. As you will see he goes on to recommend I watch a television programme on the subject.
I find that amazing! What possessed him to tell me about the Romans? It's more than a simple coincidence. As it's meaningful it's definitely synchronicity in action. There's even a picture in my book of Hadrian's Wall as mentioned by my neighbour.
Beware, people can do the unexpected once synchronicity weaves it's web!
