Beyond Life's Coincidences

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

Could it be that it's our own true nature that helps guide our lives? Intuition is an inner force, present and capable of being developed in each of us.

After my experience sitting on the benches the previous night, I am now looking back and wondering to myself if all that has happened truly is beyond coincidence. I have always been an open minded person and have always believed there's more to reality than fits our current common understanding, but I also thought coincidence was a common occurrence, as was our own desire to make something out of nothing. But as I look back on my life, I've had numerous experiences that I'm now revisiting and contemplating with a new perspective.

In my early twenties, I had a three hour drive back to college one Sunday, and while sitting at a stoplight at the very beginning of the drive, out of nowhere I heard a voice say, "you have to be careful driving today." In that moment, I had thought to myself that my mind was just sort of talking to myself. I dismissed it entirely as normal mind activity. Two hours later, I got in a car accident. The other driver's car rolled and the windows all shattered. We both walked away with nothing but injuries to our cars.

Just after college graduation and before starting my first professional job, I waitressed at a local restaurant. Although already home one evening from my shift at work, I needed to go back to the restaurant to bring my manager something I had forgot. As I pulled into the restaurant, I drove right up to the front entrance instead of parking, something employees weren't allowed to do, but I saw my manager having a break and standing outside. I stopped the car and the manager came to my window to grab what she needed. I noticed a car was also parked right behind me with its headlights so bright shining into mine. As I drove away, I suddenly had a strong intuitive thought. I need to watch where that car goes. I exited out own way, the car another. I drove down the road but watched the direction of that car and sure enough, it was turning around and now coming in my direction. I drove a mile or so and wondered to myself the whole time if I was just being a little silly. All of this was coming from zero physical evidence of impending harm or suspicious behavior. It was solely an intuitive moment. I decided to pull over to see what the car would do. Within a minute, the car drove just past me and parked around the corner but still near my own car. Now I knew I was right. I picked up my cell phone and ducked down to call the police. A man got out of the passenger side of the car and started walking toward mine. He came about halfway and stopped. I'm now dialing 911. He went back to his car and got in. I'm talking to police and he again gets out of his car and comes toward mine. He again stops halfway and returns to his car. They drive away while I'm still on the phone with police.

To end with something much more lovely, I met my husband through mutual interests, acquaintances, and a fateful article written about him that a former student sent me one evening. He was teaching in a school in South America that I had visited with my own students a year prior, and she was so surprised to see the school featured in her college newspaper. As I read the article, I completely surprised myself as I had never met this man or heard of him in my life, but I found myself saying aloud,"I am going to marry that man." And I did.

Nature defined: The natural forces that control what happen in the world; a creative and controlling force in the universe; an inner force or the sum of such forces in an individual; the external world in its entirety. (“Nature.” Dictionary, Merriam-Webster, Accessed 27 Aug. 2021.)

Could it be that it's our own true nature that helps guide our lives? Intuition is an inner force, present and capable of being developed in each of us.

Nature's Way is beautiful. Read on to be inspired by the journey. The way is through the heart.

About my Nature's Way journey 


On Nov 1, 2020, my dad moved from this world to the next. He was a fun-loving man who always could have a good laugh under any circumstance (he laughed his way through his final days), an avid outdoorsman and lover of nature, and he was known for his physical strength and bravery, not to mention his voice. He was my perfectly imperfect Dad. In a way, his death was a two year journey experienced together that continues. Twelve hours before my dad passed away, I experienced an inexplicable force of nature while holding his hand. 

After he passed, Dad began to use nature to open me up to a greater reality, helped me to understand my true nature, and is leading me to walk through life filled with love, joy, and peace, unafraid to speak my truth.

I like to say that Dad was led home, and me open. Open to Divine love, full presence to life, and connecting to those in the world just beyond ours. From beyond the veil, my dad has led me on a completely unexpected transformational journey to my inner Light, and I share that journey here.
