I should be used to these types of things by now, that is if you can ever really GET used to them. They happen often enough in my life and still astound me. A recent blog post and the things that have happened in just the last few days make me always remember that something much more powerful then ourselves are at work at times. This is one of those times.
A recent blog I posted Scared Away with Feng Shui? How I "lost" my client in Northport, Long Island New York was about the fact that I hadn't heard from this lovely client and believed Feng Shui and the changes that occured since her consultation made her "back off." She had many changes during the first two weeks of our consultation, starting from the day I left her home. This post may not make sense unless you read the original one but I watch the synchronicities and still marvel.
The following morning I woke up to this email (I am removing her address which she was kind enough to share):
I am the person who brought the dog back to your client on ___ lane.I also brought the book , The Auspicious Goat , to her because the dog came to my door and wanted me to follow him home. The book had been delivered to my house "9" Northport. only a few hours before the dog came.This was after twelve and a half years work. I was compelled to take the book to her but have never heard from her .You might enjoy the book because there is a whole chapter on the number "9" and over 200 photos I took on the surrounding area.When you are around our neighbourhood stop in and I will show you our Auspicious pumpkins, who at 14 days old is almost 200 pounds.Hopefully she is growing in an auspicious spot in our garden.I came upon your story by accident...that is if you believe in accidents.....Carolyn
I KNOW people find our blogs and read them, I just wasn't expecting this! Actually, although I had changed my client's name to "Linda" and her cat to a dog, of course she recognized who I was writing about because it included her, the writer of "The Auspicious Goat." I remember speaking with Linda and had thought she said she had a copy for me and now I wasn't sure since apparently she hadn't gone back to her neighbors home. I wrote her back and thanked her for her email and her gracious offer and said I would give Linda a call to see if she did, in fact, have a book for me.
Well, I didn't have a chance to. I was trying to clean out and finish up some work on my computer and going through emails that had been sitting there for almost a week. There was a new site I had just signed on to, biz2bizli and decided to take the time and fill out my profile information. I was just signing on and it displays who is online. I don't know a soul on that site, it is new and I saw Linda's name. There were exactly TWO of us online at the time, just myself and her. I IMed her and it probably through her a bit because of my urgency...something like 'PLEASE call me asap'! I hadn't even had a chance to call her yet and BOTH of us weresigning onto the same site at the same time??
She did, sweetheart that she is. We caught up and I finally asked her if Feng Shui and the changes had scared her off. Not at ALL, she said, she was very open to Feng Shui and many other things. Well, I couldn't NOT tell her about the blog but it was a difficult moment because I didn't know how she would take it. I wanted to tell her about the email as well from her lovely neighbor. She went on and read the blog while we were speaking (and later went back and put a comment on it). She told me she had not gone back to her neighbor because she thought perhaps her neighbor might feel obligated to give her one....instead, she had gone to a local store and bought one for me. And hadn't gotten back to me, not because she was scared but because she was so busy! Aside from the changes I wrote about in the last blog, business had increased!
I was able to write back to Carolyn that my client and I had "met up." And we would BOTH like to see her and her Auspicious pumpkin. What a kind offer from a wonderful person I have never even met. Since I was thrown by the email, I had told Val what happened. She said she sounds like such an interesting person and would like to go. I have a feeling Carolyn is going to get a few of us----and I also have a feeling she won't mind a bit! I will update this blog and share her website so please visit from time to time so I can post a picture of her pumpkin. And if you are interested in reading her amazing book, "The Auspicious Goat" she can be contacted at ZeBillyGoat@aol.com
I remember some of the comments said you thought I'd hear from her at some point...And you were right but no one could see this happening! No accidents here, just Feng Shui and Synchronicity at work!
