Dear Students and Friends,
Cute story. In July I went to a fishing cottage on the West Coast of FL for a week. I just can’t pass up the opportunity to go into the artsy little gift and consignment shops. While checking out at a little shop I met this wonderful sales women who happened to be a gypsy named Gracie.
Of course I was fascinated I had never had met a real live gypsy she had the look, the outfit and the jewels. Being Irish growing up in N.J. and N.Y. you hear stories of Irish travelers and the gypsies but I actually had the pleasure of holding an adult conversation with her about the area and her life as an artist and a gypsy.
She looked really serious with me at one point in our chat and told me that she knows that I will be back again and we would run into each other this was not the last time she would see me and said that she could just tell.
Fast forward 6 weeks later I am guess where? Back at this little village 3 hrs from my house spending another weekend. Gracie had been on my mind just minutes prior and I had just finished a conversation with my husband trying to recall her name calling her Angela in my conversation. Ten minutes later as fate dictates I am once again perusing the shelves at a different nautical treasure shop and I turn around to ask the clerk if she had a book on the city and guess who is smiling at me? Gracie and I said to her; “Didn’t we meet last month at the other shop and isn’t your name Angela?” and she said “Gracie” and took my hand to say hello. We had a great catch up.
She told me she will be in another place when I come back next time and I will see her around when I come back and that she lives nearby to where I was staying.
Talk about being able to just have instinctive readings on someone she said I’d be back and that we would meet again soon and we did. I was really perplexed how we met up again, fate.
I know sometimes life can seem mundane. As my gypsy traveler friend Gracie travels I thought to myself there is a little gypsy in each of us. We have to dare to try something different in our life that will shake what is normal and mundane and awaken us spiritually. This will only benefit us whether it is spontaneous traveling or a new type of exercise, or just reading a good novel of a different genre or signing up and learning a new hobby. Just do something and watch what transpires when you jump away from your normal safe zone as you transform.
As for me, I’ll keep a smile on my face and remember that nothing is by chance thank you Gracie!
I have shared 2 videos for you during my little time in the village this past weekend and also a background on my decision to learn yoga and why you should make the commitment to betterment in your life. You can only go up from here. You know I say it is all about the journey and not the destination but I also have to believe now after this past weekend that somethings are predestined.
Namaste my sweet friends,
