I’ve always been fascinated with numbers…a given tendency since I’m a former math teacher. My favorite number is 23, for a myriad of reasons, mostly due to the fact it’s been appearing so often throughout my life.
I’m also a big fan of synchronicity….my eyes were opened in 2002 when I watched the movie “Signs” and became aware there are so many levels of synchs for us to become aware of in this journey of life.
The real magic comes, at least for me, when numbers and synchronicity join together to supply me with amazement. This is the story of one such event.
My daughter was attending a teacher’s workshop and was afforded the luxury of going out to eat lunch. The restaurant she went to gave circular wooden tokens with numbers on them to call out when someone’s order was ready. She was given the number 23. She knows of my fascination (Ok, let’s be honest,,,obsession) with the number, so she snapped a picture of it and sent it to me….how cool was that?
The next day the workshop was in its final day and she invited me to the same restaurant to have lunch with her. We met up and placed our orders. I was given the number 20 and she was given the number 3. It took no time at all for me to realize that the sum of the two numbers was 23. So needless to say, I had to take a picture of the two of them.
Since I’m a big fan of synchs and numbers, I’m not often surprised when they make an appearance, but this one even was amazing to me. My daughter, by herself for lunch, got my favorite number. When we ate together the next day, the sum of our two numbers was 23. What are the chances of that?
While I’m sure there’s a doubting Thomas somewhere saying “That was just a mere coincidence,” I’m sure there’s a hidden meaning there that deserves to be examined. My daughter and I don’t get to eat with one another very often and here was a wink from the Universe saying this was indeed a cherished occasion. I have no doubt that everything that had transpired with our meeting, including the awesome discussion we had, was a part of a bigger plan.
And so there you go…that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
