After Nov. 14th: Maybe It’s All Just Coincidence (Pt. 8 of 10)

Today’s post is the eighth in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of  Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

There’s a theory that once you are aware of something, it seems to show up everywhere. For instance, once you buy a particular model car or a new jacket, you begin to see it popping up everywhere. Maybe that’s the case here. Maybe it’s just coincidence I’m becoming more aware of Nov. 14th occurrences because of my mother’s death.

In this eighth post of serendipitous occurrences after Nov. 14th, I’ll be sharing some snidbits of events and you can be the judge if they’re just “coincidental” or not. Next week, I’ll share one last “coincidence” that really blew my mind.

At the Viewing in St. Thomas, VI
On Nov. 27th, a few days before my mother’s funeral, I found out at the viewing, that Nov. 14th was the birthday of one of my favorite cousins that I hadn’t seen in many years. I remember when I was younger and used to go back to Antigua every summer, we would spend time playing basketball and going to the beach. How coincidental is that?

At a Tybro Workshop in Charlotte, NC
Right after my mother’s funeral on Nov. 29th, I left St. Thomas to attend the Connecting with Divine Creative Forces workshop on Nov. 30th put on by Dr. Mitchell and Cathy Gibson, founders of Tybro. I hadn’t seen Dr. Gibson since 2002 when we both used to work at the Astrological Institute in Scottsdale, AZ. Since then, he had gotten married and I was able to meet his wife for the first time at the event. As fate would have it, they both shared a touching story about her brother that had recently passed away. Needless to say, my jaw dropped when she mentioned that the funeral was held on Nov. 14th!

On Skype with A Friend in Mexico
I have a good friend that I met in Mexico at a Vipassana retreat back in 2009. Although she is originally from India and I  am from North America, we have a lot in common as English teachers and long-time Vipassana meditators (not to mention our birthdays are only 4 days apart). I still remember her response back in March when I shared with her about my mother’s death and all the  serendipitous incidents around the date on Nov. 14th. She listened intently and replied, “Well guess what? This is really going to blow your mind because my mother’s birthday is Nov. 14th!”

At the 25th Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, CA
The last and most recent “coincidence” took place at the 25th Bioneers Conference a few weeks ago. I had a chance to reconnect with one of the conference presenters, Caroline Casey, who I originally met at a United Astrology Conference (UAC) back in 2002. I was sending her greetings from a mutual friend and astrologer, Tuere Cheka and telling her about my book Afraid of Our Own Shadow. That’s  when she introduced me to the woman next to her sharing how she was involved in similar work. When I heard her name, China Galland, I immediately remembered hearing her talk on a  Healing Racism as a Spiritual Practice panel on the Inspiring Women’s  Summit back in June.

Now here are two things that are even more coincidental. The first is that I was so inspired by her Resurrecting Love film project, I emailed her after the summit in June to commend her and even put a link to her site on my resource page. The second is that as we were talking, I happened to mention the 10-Month Manifest Your Desire Campaign that I was currently undertaking in honor of my mother who recently died on Nov. 14th. Well, when she shared with me that her mother died on Nov. 14th, 2010 I was too through! Until next time!

After Nov. 14th: No Better Place Than Peru (Pt. 7 of 10)

Today’s post is the seventh in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of  Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The seventh serendipitous occurrence after Nov. 14th takes place in Peru and I can’t think of a better place. Many of you may not be aware that Latin America (and Peru especially), has a mystical past that has been hidden from the general population. Horace Butler, author of When Rocks Cry Out, theorizes that when you read the ancient descriptions of the layout of Jerusalem, the Saksaywaman ruins in Cusco, Peru can be said to be the true location of Jeru(Peru)-salem of the Bible.

Given this information, I couldn’t think of a better place to be doing my yearly 10-day Vipassana silence retreat than Peru. From Dec. 28th to Jan. 7th, I had the opportunity to send out energy during the last days of my mom’s 49 day transitional period and pray for her peaceful and prosperous ascension. I’d like to share two powerful personal experiences in Peru related to a previous post (part 3 of 10) where I mentioned that my personal menstruation cycle began the day of Nov. 14th. Well, to continue the story, I started to become concerned when I noticed that my next cycle was way late and this has never happened in the past. Everyone told me that it must be related to stress related to my mother’s death, but I wasn’t certain because I thought I was processing everything well. Five weeks came, six weeks came and still no cycle. So, I just released my concern about the whole thing and focused on my goals during the silence retreat.

When January 1st came (the day of her ascension), I awoke like clock work at 11 pm (12am where my mother was living) to the sound of fireworks and tipped toed outside my room to watch the night sky light up in celebration of a new year. I had the most powerful, lucid dream just before then, and it was as if she was giving me instructions on how to handle four things that would come up in the future. After receiving that omen, I felt happy and assured that she had ascended with “flying colors.” The fireworks, the New Year and the New Moon of January 1, 2014  just added to the story. My meditation for the whole day was great and I felt such joy in my soul to know that my mother had incarnated or ascended to a better place. So lo and behold, on Jan 2nd at around 12am, my cycle came like clockwork. To me, this symbolized the beginning of a new chapter in my life that is actually connected to the past.

And this brings me to my second powerful personal experience. Back in 1998 on Jan. 2nd, I had just completed my first silence retreat and it was on that day that I received the revelation to write a book of which I share the story on my first blog Coming Full Circle Countdown.  The icing on the cake for me was when on Jan. 2nd, the llama in this picture shows up at the retreat for the first time to share a message with me. When I looked up the significance of llama animal medicine, it mentioned that the llama brings the energies of hard work, responsibility and endurance and reminds us to take balanced action with patience and persistence. These have been the exact traits needed in order to manifest my desire of creating the financial legacy needed to honor my mother’s legacy with the Pushing Daisy Drive. Until next time!

After Nov. 14th: 20 Days of Silence (Pt. 6 of 10)

Today’s post is the sixth in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of  Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

In order to share the sixth serendipitous occurrence to take place after Nov. 14th, I have to jump ahead of the story a bit. There are several other events that take place before the one I’ll share today, but this one has a lot of relevance to last week’s post. I’m kind of surprised I didn’t see this one earlier; however, after spending 20 Days of Silence at a Vipassana retreat, there isn’t much of anything that doesn’t come up to the surface!

In April, I had an opportunity to attend my first 20-Day Vipassana silence retreat in Onalaska, Washingtion. I have been to 10 Day silence retreats in the past, but this was the first time that I would be in silence for 20 days! Needless to say, it was an amazing experience. It gave me the opportunity to truly process the death of my mother. I reminisced on all the good times growing up and all the hard and soft lessons I’ve learned that have helped to shape me into the person I am today. As I was flowing on this feast of feel good memories, the thought finally occurred to me to count the days from my mother’s birthday on Sept. 26th to the day of her death. You guessed it! From Sept. 26th to Nov. 13th makes exactly 49 days! That was her last complete 49 day cycle on the earth plane. Now how does it get any stranger than that? Until next time!

After Nov. 14th : 49 Days After Death (Pt. 5 of 10)

Today’s post is the fifth in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of  Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The fifth serendipitous occurrence to take place after Nov. 14th has a little history to it and again has to do with the Destiny Cards, an ancient astrological system hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards. The Destiny Cards system is based off of a mathematical formula that determines the layout for the mundane spread for each year. No matter how many times you use this formula, there are three cards that always end up in the same position. They are the Eight of Clubs (that’s my card),  the Jack of Hearts (that’s my mom’s card) and the King of Spades. Unlike the Eight of Clubs (8C) and Jack of Hearts (JH), there is only one day of the year that you can be born to have a King of Spades (KS) birth card and that is January 1st. I came to the conclusion that these three cards represent qualities to the ancient Egyptian motto, “to operate (KS) in truth (8C) in service (JH) to others.”

To make a long story short, I was at lunch with my friend in Peru explaining how my book Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards was motivated by my mother’s death, when she reminded me that in the Tibetian tradition, a deceased person’s spirit lingers in the spirit world for 49 days before it makes its transition to another realm or another reincarnation. From that conversation, I wondered what date 49 days from my mother’s death was. You guessed it! It was January 1st! What made this special was that for 2014, January 1st was a new moon and a new year! How does it get any stranger than that? Until next time!

After Nov. 14th: My Grandma’s Death Date (Pt. 4 of 10)

Today’s post is the fourth in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAThe fourth serendipitous occurrence took place after Nov. 14th and has to do with my grandmother’s death date. I had been spending days and hours organizing and clearing out all of my mother’s belongings from where she was staying in St. Thomas, VI. This in itself was a challenging experience; however, nothing prepared me for the shocking surprise that forced my person to lie down for minute to process.

As I was going through one of my mother’s files, I happened to come across my grandparent’s death certificates. I discovered that my mother’s mother also died on November 14th 56 years ago! This is amazing because not only was it the same date of the year (Nov. 14th) , but when I looked it up, I found it was also the same day of the week (Thursday). In my last post of this series, I mentioned how my mother and I believed that I had my grandmother’s spirit, so this was a very personal and special revelation for me. Until next time!

On Nov. 14th: My Cycle Begins (Pt. 3 of 10)

Today’s post is the third in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The third serendipitous occurrence took place the day of Nov. 14th and has to do with my cycle, as in my personal menstruation cycle. My mother was in intensive care the night before, and I remember staring out of my best friend’s balcony the whole night praying that G.O.D’s will be done and asking for acceptance in whatever the outcome. There was a part of me that was in denial that my mother could actually be leaving this planet. I never thought the day would come, especially now, especially like this.

I noticed a particular star outside that seemed to be twinkling and talking to me solely. Whatever it conveyed to me telepathically seemed to give me the courage to completely surrender the outcome in G.O.D’s most capable hands, releasing attachment in every way. It felt like I was breathing my last breath to be surrendering like this, but I knew it was necessary to embrace the reality of the moment.

As you can guess, getting that call at 5:34 am from my brother telling me my mother passed away was a major blow, but there was also a sense of peace because I had that faith in knowing this was G.O.D’s will. A circle of pain, confusion and disbelief may have been hoovering all around the surface of my existence, but at the center there was an indescribable faith and knowing that a new and necessary chapter in my life had begun as my mother’s had ended. You see, I believe me and my mother have been traveling together across lifetimes, and she even told me that I reminded her of her mother the day I was born. Whatever the reason for this phenomena, I sense the purpose has been to protect, prepare and promote each other’s spiritual development as we go.

So, as I said farewell (for now), to my fellow life traveler on this earth plane, it would make sense, symbolically, that I’d start my menstruation cycle on the same day. Yet, it doesn’t end there. There is another event that I’ll share later that makes this even more serendipitous and mysterious. Until next time.

Before Nov. 14th: Solar Eclipse Families (Pt. 2 of 10)

Today’s post is the second in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The second serendipitous occurrence to take place before Nov. 14th has to do with a  KTL BlogTalkRadio broadcast on Nov. 6th, 2013. The first and most obvious  thing to note is that the twins that host the show, Blue Pill and Red Pill, were born on Nov. 14th! But then it gets deeper.

One of the hosts shared how he “serendipitously” came across some information on solar eclipse families and how the one that had just took place on Nov. 3rd had special significance to his personal family (his younger brother was born on Nov. 3rd). Apparently, solar and lunar eclipses belong to families called Saros that are made up of 72 eclipses in an expand of 1,280 years. The Nov. 3rd solar eclipse was number 23 of Saros 143, a series that began on March 7, 1617 and ends on April 23, 2897, which is the same day as their mother’s birthday! But now here’s the kicker…

Since each Saros family happens every 18 years, the one that happened previously was on Oct. 24, 1995 (the same date as the last day of Durga Puja that I wrote about when my mother was first hospitalized a year earlier). The next one in this series will take place (you guessed it) on Nov. 14, 2031. All the while I was listening intrigued by the significance this eclipse had for the Pill’s family, little did I know what it would mean for me in about a week! Until next time.

Before Nov. 14th: A 7 Week Cycle Begins (Pt.1 of 10)

Today’s post is the first in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences that have taken place on Nov. 14th (the day my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!

Tuesday Tribute

The first serendipitous occurrence to take place before Nov. 14th has to do with the Destiny Cards, an ancient astrological system hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards. For over 15 years, I have studied and assisted individuals in understanding their life cycles to make better choices through traditional astrology and this fascinating system. In the Destiny Card system, there are 13 year cycles, 7 years cycles, yearly cycles, 52 day cycles, 7 week cycles and weekly cycles that are all calculated based on a mathematical formula. Each personal cycle begins on the day of the week that you were born (or on your birthday for the yearly cycle).

Before my mother passed away, I vaguely remember looking at my upcoming cycles on my computer software and noticing that a new 7 week cycle would begin for me on Thursday, Nov. 14th. At that time, I didn’t know how important this would be (for more than one reason) until months later!

The Serendipitous Date of Nov.14th: A 10 Part Series

Tuesday Tribute

Yesterday I mentioned that I will be writing a 10-part series sharing serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences that have taken place on Nov. 14th (the day my mother died). Starting next week for Pushing Daisy Tuesday Tribute, I’ll share a story, an event or mysterious occurrences involving this date. These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, 2013, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14th, so stay tuned! In the meantime, I’ve reposted the accomplishments  and vision for the last days of the drive.

Diasy Drive

The original goal for Phase 1 of the  Pushing Daisy Drive  was:

To fund the start-up costs and planning involved to build an Eco-friendly home and educational center in Antigua, West Indies, that will also serve as a private operating foundation in honor of my mother’s legacy of service.

THE GOOD NEWS
A family member made a donation to cover the land taxes and lawyer fees associated with the center site, which is a great blessing. Also, as a result of extensive research, I found out that the best organizational structure with the least amount of paperwork and international red tape would be a health education ministry instead of a private operation foundation. Essentially, we will be able to do everything (and even more) that we would be able to do as an operating foundation, while saving a lot of time and money in the long run. However, there are still legal costs involved to complete the process.

THE CHALLENGE

Raise $2,750 by Nov. 14th for Legal Fees
My goal is to raise $2, 750 by developing a PWYW (Pay What You Want) product, event or service with great content and offer a limited time only discount on my coaching services during the last days of the campaign. Your feedback and participation will be much appreciated during this time, so stay tuned.

THE VISION

Develop a Product, Event or Service for the End of the Campaign
In the Mayan Calendar, there is a 50-Day period that happens at least once a year made up of portal and core days taking place from Oct. 31st to December 19th in 2014. The 20-day cycle of core days begins on Nov. 15th and ironically for this year, the Mayan season changes on Nov. 14th– the day before! At this time, the energy on the planet is more powerful to accelerate transformation and to be more receptive to cosmic knowledge for self mastery. During this 50 Day period, I’ll be developing a product, event or service that can assist participants collectively tap into this energy to ‘anchor reality in the now’ and manifest our desires.

 The Serendipitous Date of Nov.14th: A 10 Part Series
I’ll be writing a 10 part series sharing serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences that have taken place on Nov. 14th (the day my mother died). This series of Pushing Daisy Tuesday Tribute posts will be sure to amaze you!

Manifest Desires

The 10-Month Mission I set out to achieve when I first began this blog on Jan. 14th was:

To encourage, inspire and support others in manifesting their desires by blogging about my 10-month commitment to manifest my internal and external desires in honor of my mother.

THE GOOD NEWS

Two Internal Desires
I’ve had roughly 7 months training in learning how to do something for the love of it and not out of excessive obligation. This required a large amount of trust and acceptance. I alluded in a past post, Four Things I’ve Learned in the Last Six Months, that there were plenty of times of deep vulnerability (usually when my person wasn’t able to deliver on a editorial promise). These experiences have allowed me to love myself moreno matter what. 

Allowing my desires to shine forth despite what others might think and being okay with myself no matter what has been a true act of intimacy that I’m only now beginning to understand. There is a reason why a lot of us don’t take risk and go after our desires. It’s because of all the internal ghosts and external remarks that come up from within and without that are unceasingly tempting us to give up. Sharing these posts (and not knowing whether anyone is reading or even caring) has allowed for a type of intimacy beyond words. My person has become stronger emotionally and more self-reliant, allowing me to T.A.P into happiness like never before.

Two External Desires
Staying in touch with how I wanted to feel during the course of this campaign has allowed me to be more in tune with my limitations and distractions without judgment. It’s also given me the ability to regroup, refocus and pick myself up and dust myself off when I’ve fallen short of my goals.

I’ve had to scale back on the travel writing and put off a lot of time I could have spent book writing, yet the good news is that I haven’t given up! I’ve actually become more realistic, prepared and able to see what is possible, even if it all doesn’t come within the 10-month time frame.

THE CHALLENGE

Conduct a Series of Successful Surveys & Polls by Sept. 8th
Blogging and book writing can be a solitary road, so getting your feedback assists me in writing and sharing what is most needed. As of today, only three people have taken the book survey and my goal is to get at least 100 people by Sept. 8th. In exchange for your feedback, I’m planning to give away one free spot for my upcoming retreat in Mexico.

More Consistent Creative Posts
For the last days of the campaign, you can expect more guest posts, creative poetic posts,  pictures and videos on a more consistent basis. Now that I’m freeing up more of my time for what I’m passionate about, I can put some of that passion into my upcoming posts.

THE VISION

playaConscious Co-Creator Contest
The Conscious Co-Creator Contest began August 22nd and the goal is to get feedback on your biggest challenges around conscious co-creation, as well as for my upcoming book Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards. The prize is a free 90 Minute Initial Consultation OR one free tuition (travel and accommodation not included) to my upcoming Conscious Co-Creation Retreat @ The Sanctuary in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, Sept. 19th-26th.

Commence Crowdfunding
In junior high, I used to wonder why my graduation was called commencement, when I was actually completing school. Now I understand, it’s because the focus was on celebrating what’s been completed and preparing for what is to come. Although I won’t complete my book or become a successful travel writer by the time I complete this campaign, I will be commencing a journey of taking my writing and publishing to another level that would have never been possible before the campaign. Just as I wrap up the campaign, I plan to begin a crowd funding for books campaign on Pubslush.  This will give me more exposure for my book and allow people the opportunity to buy the book ahead of time, as a way of investing in the vision. With this initial investment, I’ll have the  resources needed to self-publish and get it on the market sooner. Another great benefit of the Pubslush platform is that I’ll have the opportunity to get more feedback in order to produce a better product.
