I am a firm believer in signs and synchronicities. I also believe that they are a form of communication from Source/God. But in my day to day life, if
I try to talk to anyone about this. I get treated like I'm crazy for believing it. Now granted the synchronicities that I experience are completely
insane, I get that. But how that craziness gets transferred to the person experiencing them is beyond me. But the other thing I don't understand, is
how someone can write something like I have posted below off as mere coincidences. I could understand if it was just one coincidence, seeing it that
way. But what I experience are strings of synchronicities, that sometimes go on for days before they stop. So if you are not a believer in
synchronicity, can you explain to me how you can rationally write something like the experience I have posted below off as all just a big long string
of coincidences? In my mind a coincidence is something that is rare, which is what makes it a coincidence in the first place. So isn't a big long
string of coincidences contradictory to the definition of what a coincidence is? If no, why?
coincidence synonyms: accident, chance, fluke
Before this past summer, I was checking to see who was coming to Colorado in concert. After a long search of different bands, I end up going to Steve
Vai's website. He's wasn't touring, but I noticed a note at the bottom of the webpage that said he was coming to Colorado for a guitar clinic in Vail
in August. So I go to that website. (I can't afford something like that, but I wanted to check it out anyways.) Then after reading about the guitar
clinic, there's a note at the bottom of that page talking about how Steve will be playing a free concert in Copper Mountain the following weekend. So
he wasn't touring, but he was coming here for free! So I made a mental note of the date, and told my wife so she could get off from work for it.
Summer passes, and I start going through about 5 major things all at the same time, all of which are
life altering. Nothing in my life will be the same in a few months from now. But long story short, I completely forgot about the concert. Then when I
go to look it up, thinking it may have passed already. My wife tells me the wrong date, so then I really think that I missed it. But Source led me to
verify the date. So I did, and the concert was that day in about 4 hours, in Copper Mountain.
My wife forgot to take off from work, so it was my daughter and I going to the show. We also planned on going up to Glenwood Springs after the show,
so that we could climb up to Hanging Lake the next day, which my daughter hadn't done since she was around 4 years old, and had basically forgotten
it. So I wanted her to experience that too, before school kicked off it's new year.
So we were rushing around the house, getting everything ready to go. I asked my daughter if she had grabbed a hat, because she might want one. She
said no, so I asked her which one she wanted. She took a bit to decide, so I said how about this one, and grabbed her pink baseball hat. She said ok,
but I could tell she wasn't thrilled with it. But she didn't know what else to grab, so that's what we took. We stopped to get some burritos on the
way up the mountain, then continued to the show. When we got there, we found out that we couldn't bring outside food in. So we decided to eat on a
stone fence next to a roundabout outside the venue since we had about 30 minutes 'til show time.
So we're eating our burritos, and a SUV pulls up in front of us. Then when they drive away, a hat comes flying off behind them into the street landing
in front of us. So I get up and get the hat, and yell a couple of times that they dropped their hat, but they couldn't hear me. So I told my daughter
when I was walking back to her, that somebody must have heard that she needed a hat. I told her if they came back before we finished eating looking
for it, that we would give it back to them. But if they didn't come back, that I would let her keep it. They didn't come back.
So we go into the show, and end up next to an older woman and her daughter. One of the first things out of the moms' mouth was how much she liked my
daughters hat. She said that she almost bought that exact hat in a store not 50 yards away from where we were sitting.
At the end of the show, I asked my daughter if she would like to try and get Steve Vai's autograph, to which she said yes. So we went over to a fence
with some other people waiting, and we end up getting Steve's autograph on the hat that we had just found in the parking lot before the show.
Then we go to Glenwood Springs for the night. We get a hotel room, and we're sitting outside our room taking in the sights and sounds. When there is a
thud in the middle of the road. So we try to see what it was, but it was dark. So I guessed it was a tire tread or something, and went to get it out
of the street so no cars would hit it, and it ends up being a Domino's pizza bag with a bunch of food still in it. So I called Domino's and reported
the lost pizza bag, to which I'm told to wait outside and a driver will be by soon to pick it up. Well a half hour to 40 minutes later I'm on the
phone to report the lost pizza bag again. I tell them what happened again. The guy tells the manager, and he says it's the first that he's even heard
of it. But to wait inside our room if we want, and he would send over a driver with a $10 reward, to which I said thank you. Then I asked him what
they were going to do with the food inside the bag, to which he said we could have it if we want it. So two times in one day, something flew off of or
out of a car in front of us, that we ended up getting for free, on top of the free concert.
The next day we drive to Hanging Lake for our hike, but the electric signs for the exit were saying that the parking lots were full. Which means you
have to drive several miles up the highway. Then turn around and go all the way back to Glenwood Springs, and then back toward Hanging Lake again, and
hope the sign doesn't say the parking lots are full still. But Source/God led me to go ahead and give it a shot. So we took the exit for Hanging Lake
and found a parking spot within 5 minutes or less. We could have been driving back and forth for hours until that signs said that the parking lot
wasn't full. Then on our hike up the mountain, we took a break on a bridge going over a river. A butterfly landed on the rail to the bridge not far
from us. So I told my daughter to move her hand really slow towards it, and stop when her hand was next to it. So she did, and the butterfly climbed
up on her hand and stayed there for 2 minutes or so.
So that whole weekend was a really cool string of synchronicities that just kept going. So for the doubters, how do you rationalize something like
that as all just coincidences, when synonyms for coincidence are accident, chance, and fluke. How is it rare if they happen one right after the other
over a two day period?
You can view a video of the Steve Vai concert in Copper Mountain at the link below. One of my favorite songs that he played that day, was a song that
I didn't even go to the show to hear. But the moment was pretty magical, you can find it at the 42:22 mark in the video. The song is called Whispering
Peace, and thank you for your time,
