Curious Coincidences: Evidence of Your ESP
by Derek Calibre
Coincidences are clever mysteries. They are like winks from the Universe, confirming we are on the path toward our dreams. When we experience a coincidence we feel a spiritual force is at work in our lives, organizing events in such a way as to grab our attention. But perhaps it's our attention that causes coincidences to occur.
For many years, coincidences frequently played out for me. But over the last few months, none came to me. Or I didn't notice any. About three weeks ago, I wondered where the coincidences had gone. It was this wondering that called them back to my awareness: I was paying attention again.
If it's been a while since you noticed a coincidence, you can attract one one to you simply by wondering if one will make an appearance. Ask yourself for a symbol that could play out in your future reality. Any symbol will do. Simply close your eyes, and accept the very first thing that pops to mind. Accepting the very first thing that pops to mind is difficult to do for a lot of people. That first thing often seems silly or irrelevant, so we tend to dismiss it. But psychic insights are quick!
Recently, for me, it was frogs that popped to my mind. Leaping, croaking frogs. It sounds silly to think frogs would have any real significance in my world, that they might indicate some direction, suggest an idea, lead me someplace. Then again, why second guess a harmless psychic vision?
I performed an automatic writing exercise, imagining frogs doing different things in my mind. I believe the Intelligence that arranges coincidences loves to play. So I wrote a page about frogs in my psychic journal. Psychic experiences can arise out of this exercise. I recommend you write about your symbol, or whatever comes to mind. Write quickly. A paragraph will do.
I wrote, "Leaping Frog! Peeping up in the water, plucking at the banjo, burping in the bog, singing me to sleep all night, through the summer. Tad poles swimming in a bowl. I watched you change, change, change. Aquarium, terrarium. Boy, I wonder. When I was a boy I took you back to the swamp behind our yard. You were home, where you belong."
Insights into the meaning behind coincidences can be found in the symbolism of their elements. Writing about the frog, which I thought of as my psychic symbol, helped me see how it might perform in action. I'd be looking for any frogs that appear in my future reality to, by coincidence, match these visions. True, my depictions were typical- frogs as they might ordinarily be seen- leaping, singing, in a swamp, etc. But this helps to remind me of the energy behind the archetype. If frogs were to be communicating any psychic messages to me, those messages might be about transformation and change, entertainment, making a leap, going home, living in two worlds. Perhaps I am undergoing my own metamorphosis!
Like the frog, I live in two worlds- one imaginary, one real. When I perform as an actor, on stage, I live in an imaginary world. The same is true for another role I play in life, the role of a psychic. When psychics see visions for people, those visions appear in their imaginations! To develop your psychic ability, you have to believe in your imagination.
Frog's first appearance came to me at The Museum of Natural History, just down the street from my apartment. A huge new banner announced the museum's new exhibit: 200 live frogs. In ancient cultures, frogs were thought to be totems of rain delivery. Auspiciously, it was raining.
My umbrella gave me a little trouble after I entered the subway station. I had to jiggle its spring mechanism a bit to get it to close. Once securely fastened, I thought for a moment of what a great and valuable invention the spring is. How wonderful it is that to open an umbrella, you simply push a button and poof! It's open!
I have this childlike amazement of simple things like this. A sense of wonder and naiveté is essential to developing your psychic ability. If you want to attract coincidences, try walking through life with a renewed sense of amazement and appreciation. My mind went to various applications for the brilliant little spring. Watches, pogo sticks, mattresses. When I'm on the subway train my mind goes off into the silliest places!
As the train was coming to a stop, I dug my fingers into the bottom of my backpack in search of lip balm. I touched something small and smooth that I couldn't identify, so I pulled it out. It was a spring from a pen that had cracked and come apart in my bag. At that very moment, I looked out the window. We were stopped at Spring Street!
Coincidences reveal an otherwise invisible connection that ties all things together. Our psychic minds are tied in to this invisible thread. The evidence is in little moments like these. The psychic mind is active within us, even if we are not conscious of it.
A few days after this train ride, I decided to go see Sam Shepard's True West in the East Village with a friend. At the theatre, I was given a program. The name of the production company was Curious Frog!
A day or two later, I was in acting class, when my teacher brought up the subject of stage props. He suggested we bring in any we thought we might use in scenes. A couple of students digressed for a moment about some of the strange props the studio has had over the years. "We lost the frogs," one of them said. "Remember those two ceramic frogs? For a while, they were in every scene!"
I visited my parents in Rhode Island for a few days. Just after my arrival, my mother pointed into the back yard, and said, "What do you think of our new garden ornament?" She was referring to two ceramic frogs! They were squatting on a log.
That evening, we went to see the movie UP. A preview played for a feature animation called "The Princess and the Frog." In the film UP, a frog humorously made an appearance as an alarm clock. Later, as I laid in bed, real frogs began plucking away in the little swamp behind our house.
A lot of frogs ended up appearing in my reality after that first "psychic vision." Coincidences happen in the places where we dream. For me, it's the theatre, film, the home where I grew up. The "visions" I had in my psychic journal really did describe the frogs that came to me!
Coincidences leave us feeling touched by something special. We ask what they mean as if there was only one meaning. But coincidences mean many things. They mean whatever you want them to mean, and more. When they appear, take it as a sign that your psychic mind is awakening, even calling you. Notice where your symbols appear and spend time at these places. You may feel some of the meanings behind coincidences are hidden, but a path is being laid out for you. Coincidences are a mystery, but they sure are fun to cultivate and follow!
