I want to start off saying that I am not a religious person. I don’t like religions and there “I’m right and you’re wrong attitude.” Now, on to better things that that is out of the way. This year, for me, has been an incredible year of spirtual growth. I’ve been reading a lot and observing even more.
Now, I firmly believe in synchronicity and certain facets of quantum physics that say that we alter reality by our thoughts. Basically, we get what we expect. To put this into perspective, I would like to share a couple of “coincidences”. I don’t believe in coincidences anymore.
I’m a software developer by trade. For the past 2 years I’ve worked for Bank of America and became seriously burned out. I finally took some time off at the beginning of June. At that time, and all through the summer, my most ardant and heartfelt wish was that I would be able to work at home. Notice, not that I would not have to return to the office (negative), but that I would be able to work from home. I took no action on this, only made my most fervant wish. I imagined how happy I would be if that happened.
1. On July 11th, I got an e-mail from a guy that I used to work for in Texas. He offered me a project that would last an estimated 6 months and that he would be ready to start in September and best of all, I could work from home. I was nonplussed, to say the least. I went to Georgia to visit him, we discussed the details and everything was ready to roll.
2. On August 22nd, I received another e-mail, this one from a manager who used to work with my wife’s best friend. Another project, this one paying even more, and to work from home. However, it was done in a technology that I have no experience in. I told him this and hoped that they would change their mind about the technology.
3. August 30th, I got an e-mail, in reference to item #2, that they had decided to go with Java, which is what I do, and wanted to know if I was available to do the contract! Now, I had two contracts and wondered how to swing them both. Contact #1, 6 months, Contract #2, 1 month.
4. Contract number 1 got put on hold and contract #2 just got extended today and may last for 3+ months.
My wife asked me what I really wanted to happen and I said: “I want contract #2 to last until at least January, or longer and I want contract 1 to immediately follow on afterwards and continue all the way through next summer”.
Today’s call: “Contract #2 will continue until at least December 15th and looks like there will be one or 2 more to follow.”.
I do believe, and am very, very, very, thankful for these gifts, that I am creating my own reality (Sure, Paul, lots of New Age blah, blah). Well, you can call it luck, the power of prayer, quantum causation, etc. It works.
I could go on and on about numerous things that have happened, but I only wanted to give an example. All I can say is that however it is happening, I’m thankful and appreciative.
