When we think of magic, what often comes to mind is a master magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat or other tricks on stage. However, the magic I am referring to is the “meaningful coincidences” or synchronicity that happens in life, where unrelated events occur that seem to be importantly linked, yet have no apparent underlying connection.
For example, in my book, I relay a story about a woman who met her future husband, by spilling the contents of her purse on the ground, after running into him on her way out of a New York City salon in tears. She had just received a terrible haircut, and poor treatment by the highly regarded stylist, and he happened to be perfectly placed for their encounter at just the right time.
Or, we may have less epic life changing events, such as when we suddenly start thinking about someone we haven’t seen in a long time, and they call us ‘out of the blue’ or we run into them somewhere we don’t usually go.
In retrospect, we can probably reflect on many situations, where if any of the events that occurred had not happened the way they did, we may not have met our current partner, have the career we value today, or any other number of life circumstances we enjoy.
Anything that positively lines up, can be considered a matter of ‘luck’ or ‘being at the right place at the right time’ but either way it’s magic when it happens!
