“When something unexpectedly wonderful happens, don’t look a gift source in the mouth. Just say thank you and receive, receive, receive.” – Sam Horn
Every SerenDestineer I’ve interviewed feels grateful for the synchronistic coincidences – the lucky breaks – that have come their way.
They realize these occurrences didn’t have to happen; they just did.
When good fortune “falls in your life’s lap,” find a way to honor it.
This was delightfully demonstrated while flying to a speaking engagement recently. I was seriously sleep-deprived because I’d been working around the clock with consults and prepping for this global conference.
All I wanted to do was sleep. All the woman next to me wanted to do was talk.
Normally I’d put on my noise reduction headphones and grab some zzzz’s and privacy, however my gut kept telling me, “Talk to this woman” . . . so I did.
After swapping “What do you do’s?” she asked me to define SerenDestiny.
I told her, “SerenDestiny is doing what puts the lights on in our eyes.”
She asked, “How do you do that?” so I talked about harmonic hunches – those instincts that alert us when something’s about to go right – and how we meet our fate in the middle when we act on those intutive nudges.
My seatmate, Alice, got so excited, she started hopping up and down in her seat. “Oooh. Oooh. “I’m a musician. Do you know what that’s called in music?”
“Please tell me.”
“When two notes play in perfect harmony, they create a new third note that’s called a Tartini Tone.”
Now it was my turn to get excited.
“That’s it. That’s exactly what happens when we connect with someone who’s operating on the same wave length. That harmonic coming together creates a new third entity . . . a vibrationally-aligned venture or relationship that wouldn’t have existed otherwise.”
We continued our conversation and I vowed to send her a signed copy of SerenDestiny in appreciation for her insightful contribution.
As soon as we landed, I looked up “Tartini Tone” in Wikipedia and discovered it was named after Giuseppe Tartini. He was the first one to study this “sum tone” or “combination tone” that is created when two tones vibratie in harmony.
I’m so grateful for that “coincidental” meeting with Alice as it’s a sublime example of how we set our SerenDestiny in motion when we act on our intuition.
I could have put on my headphones and ignored her, but instead I heeded that hunch that told me, “Talk to this woman.”
The result? A SerenTini: a harmonious meeting that produced a mutually-rewarding insight that moved my work forward – for good.
I’ve always loved Mesiter Ekhart’s insight, “If the only prayer we ever said was ‘thank you,’ that would be enough” . . . however I’ve come to believe that saying “Thank you” for these uncanny coincidences isn’t enough.
From now on, if you want to lead the life you’re meant to live, connect the dots of coincidences and follow up with congruent people who “happen” to cross your path. Doing this can create a mutually-beneficial collaboration that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. From now on . . .
