I love the mysterious ways in which energy works.
In the years 2006-2007, I often traveled past a hospital in Bangalore.
Every time I passed by the hospital, my attention was drawn to that space and I found myself looking at it until I passed the entire stretch it occupied. I felt a sense of peace when I saw it.
When I met Suraj in 2007, he told me he worked for that hospital and had been there since 2006.
I believe we have ways of picking up on certain vibes, without knowing immediately what they may mean.
Similarly, exactly a week before I met Suraj, I was walking out of home, while he was entering an office space adjacent to my home for some work.
And how do I know this?
When I met him the following week, he offered to drop me back home. And when he saw where I lived, he told me he had been right next door exactly a week back. And when we traced this even further back in time, we realised that the time I walked out and he walked in was almost the same!
I loved a buzzing neighbourhood in our city and often dreamt of living there someday. At the same time, I also loved coffee plantations and the solitude of nature. Post our marriage, circumstances got us to move into this neighbourhood I always dreamt of living in. And a year after living in an apartment, we were offered accommodation at the residential campus of the hospital located in the same neighbourhood.
And guess what?
This campus, despite being bang in the middle of the city, was Paradise On Earth. It was lush green and had varieties of exotic trees and birds. Things began to feel even more magical when I discovered that the house we were allotted also had a coffee plant in its backyard! The doctor who had stayed there prior to us hailed from a plantation family. So, he planted the coffee, apart from several other beautiful plants and trees, including an orange tree!
I can create a long list of such sweetly mysterious experiences that I have had.
However, I will stop at this.
Sure, it may all just be a string of coincidences. Even assuming it is nothing more than coincidence, I think it still is pretty amazing!
I personally believe we attract whatever matches our vibe and our deepest desires, and that if we look close enough, we will see an invisible thread of energy running between us and everything that is in our life.
