Is the universe leaving you breadcrumbs ?

Is the universe leaving you breadcrumbs ?

Is it possible the Universe leaves breadcrumbs for us to follow ?

The other day I experienced what many may call a coincidence….

I was standing at the checkouts at our local Toysrus store bright and early just after 8am to take advantage of their new catalogue, there was a woman in front of me who made a purchase and we both asked the checkout operator about loyalty points. Anyway I digress, the point is I took notice of this woman and remembered what she looked like and then went about my day.

Around 1.30pm I popped down to a Target store which is about 15 minutes away from the Toysrus store – note this was about 5 hours later and in an area with over 200,000 residents and guess what – in front of me at the checkouts was the same lady !!!!

At first I thought this is a tad weird, but think about it…we both went our separate ways in the morning and somehow we ended up at exactly the same place twice -what are the chances ?

So was there something more to this coincidence ?

I believe it was to remind me that while things appear to happen randomly there is order to the universe and there will be breadcrumbs left for me…..I just have to be willing to follow the breadcrumbs.

So the universe has successfully captured my attention – I am open and waiting for my next breadcrumb  

Footnote:  I have just realised there was another breadcrumb left for me the day previously…I am currently searching for my birth father’s family and was at my first appointment with an adoption resource centre and when asked about my birth fathers details  I realised it would have been his 80th birthday on that very day. I could have had this appointment any day but randomly (?) was scheduled for this day…another breadcrumb to say I am on the right path.







Bookmarks in your mind

Bookmarks in your mind

In any day there are thousands of thoughts and experiences your mind is exposed to, however only some of these appear to be retained for easy reference. The rest are no doubt filed away in a deep part of our mind yet certain memories appear to be front of mind for easy reference….these are what I call bookmarks.

I have long been fascinated with this, why are certain things bookmarked ?

My belief is these bookmarks are lessons to remember or breadcrumbs to finding your path, some may be both.

I am not talking about life changing events which will definitely be cataloged in your mind
I will save these for another day  ), I am talking about those  small memories which we hold onto and reference when applicable.

Let me randomly pick some of my bookmarks and the reasons why:

  • Serving a neighbor at a bank and not recognizing or acknowledging them. To remind myself to SEE others as individuals and not as numbers.
  • Walking down the driveway at my Nana’s house in complete and total darkness. Invokes feelings of trust that all will be OK, indeed a sense of protection. This is one of my most used bookmarks.
  • I was around 14 and attempting to meditate for the first time (and actually I think the last time for many years) and realising that just for a moment or two I had quietened my mind.  To innocently remember it is possible to quieten my mind.
  • Another childhood memory was reading a passage from the bible at church, I can remember how natural and confident I felt. When I am on my path I will have the confidence.
  • Buying a soft serve ice cream at Coles Variety store and remembering the girl who served me. Years later our paths crossed again and we became close friends, did my soul know this the first time we met?

The interesting thing is, these bookmarks / memories are so vivid – it is like watching a movie in my mind. Take the last one for example, I am sure I bought many ice creams from Coles but I cannot remember any other why this one ?

Ok I am going spiritual for a moment…come with me if you desire otherwise skip ahead .
Is it possible there are some small ( and big )  things that we experience that are non-negotiable that help direct us in this lifetime. In fact did we agree to these and even had a hand in planning them before we came into this body ? Are these checkpoints or course corrections and is it our soul that recognises and bookmarks them!

Do you have memories that play like a movie in your mind at just the right time ?
These are your bookmarks, what are they telling you ?
