Sometime, it sucks. There's creepers left and right, under every cloak imaginable. But when you ignore it, and keep moving - listening to intuition and making the connections regardless - you meet some amazing people.
I met the amazing Mindie Adamos (www.themoderndaymedium.com) on the picture app for your phone, Instagram.
We don't really recall exactly how we came to connect, Mindie thinks it was via her sister which I'm sure it was - but it's crazy how nothing is a coincidence.
We were put before each other, for a reason. Not discovered until we chatted and got to know each other.
Just using it as an example... There are absolutely 0 coincidences in life.
I'm not gonna share what's cooking just yet, but it's so uplifting and refreshing to connect with new people who are so in line with you, and your life and your soul and all that happy crap.
Tonight, we unofficially/officially met via Skype, and had the most uplifting chat. So positive and wonderful.
I'd like to say it's more common for that to happen, but it's not. Not in my life, anyways. So far.
Slowly but surely it is. And it's beautiful.
It just goes to show what I always talk about everywhere. On Tarot Tuesday with Boss Butcher over on Terror Troop Poscast, and on here... Take those chances.
It's so amazing how meeting someone can affirm so many amazing things. That everyone meets for a reason, that you're not alone, that there is a positve force in the world, that prayers are answered, that you're not crazy, that things are possible... So many things.
All, in this case, due to a connection via Instagram with someone I (and she) has never met.
On the flip side, how absolutely lovely that she didn't know me at all. She never met me, yet she took time she didn't have to to comment on some things and keep in touch with me - help me with my Grandma's passing more than she'll ever know - and to actually be willing to chat with me on Skype, & exchange emails.
To get to know me. To believe in me. To trust me.
This really is a beautiful world.
Same with the absolutely amazing Holly Fulger ('Ellen', 'Zenon', 'The Hollywood Beauty Detective'). She took a chance, believed in me and trusted me, too. Not just with who I am and that I'm genuine, but with a project that she put her blood/sweat/tears into. To confide in me, and open the door to allow me to - in a way - be a part of it. To offer what I can to her, and her mission. A connection was formed that will also extend beyond the Internet. For the highest possible purpose/intention for so, so many.
That in any place, on any platform, great people are roaming around. Open and willing to share their love and light, if even a random conversation or uplifting topic.
Gratitude for the Internet, and technology. Had we just walked past each other somewhere, this wouldn't have happened. That we're in different states, so we probably would have never met at all.
But, since we were on Instagram - and both are open and compassionate, and curious and optimistic... Something beautiful, probably beyond even our current comprehension, is forming.
Don't let the signs, people, situations pass you by. No matter what they are. No matter how they come to you.
Be open to all of it.
(...but be smart, too. I'm not saying to throw common sense out the window.)
