the golden agate

This morning I received an email from a woman named Nancy. She shared a few synchronicities, but I found one of them was particularly interesting. The text below is edited slightly.

The AGATE was given its name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, who discovered the stone along the shore line of the river Achates.

Dear Mike,

I’ve just discovered your very interesting podcast and yesterday listened to your 2010 interview with Gibbs Williams. I’m prompted to write you....

...I’ll share what happened just yesterday. I was walking my daily 5 miles on the beach, looking for agates and pretty rocks as usual, listening to the Gibbs’ interview. A part of my mind was observing that while there were many tourists enjoying the beach, they had left lots of agates for me to discover.

Still listening to you and Gibbs, I thought, “Wouldn’t it be ironic if I missed a huge beautiful agate because I’m looking straight ahead instead of to the left…” So I turned my head, and there, just a few feet away from me, was the largest (perhaps 5”) golden agate (my favorite) that I’ve ever found. Talk about synchronicity! I’m listening to you talk about synchronicities and at the same time, experiencing one of my own most meaningful ever.

I followed Gibbs’ suggestion to try to find the meaning and didn’t have much trouble doing so. My current “issue” or theme is trying to make sense of all the recent information on ufos, alien abductions, other realities, etc. and reconcile those ideas with my own beliefs. I associate golden agates with beauty, gifts from God/cosmic consciousness/universal forces, etc. and often find a special agate when I’ve been puzzling over something metaphysical. For me, this was a sign that I’m on the right path and eased my mind about “rushing” to figure all of this out.

Thank you for sharing your personal search with those of us on the same quest.

Dear Nancy, thank you for sharing this synchrorific story!

And: no need to rush ... from one perspective we are always on the right path ... no other place to be.

For me it boils down to my own personal, spiritual growth, evolving to a human beeing which is living it's full potential ... and as a byproduct I get more and more insights, synchronicities happen, paranormal stuff, I become psychic, more aware of what is going on around me. These are really byproducts and little boosters for me nothing more nothing less.

And because this whole process is so personal I love what Mike is doing with his blog. He is presenting his own very personal path with all its synchronicities and strange things happening and this is the perfect invitation for the reader to recognize this in his or her own journey.
