A new friend whom I met last year became my unofficial student. Let's call her Janice*. Janice was an interesting student to begin with. In her late forties, she has a young daughter who had attended the pricey brain training class designed by a Japanese. Despite its hefty price tag, it was a highly sought-after class among local parents with young children below the age of 6. What I found surprising during my conversations with her was, one of the main objectives of the class was Extra-sensory Perception (ESP) training, which many or most parents are unaware of.
According to Wikipedia, "Extra-sensory perception or ESP, also called sixth sense, includes reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind."
Young children had to try methods like hot cards and predictions. As Janice was in the class with her young daughter, she learnt those methods as well. Subsequently, she became very good at hot cards, and was way much better than the trainer. Hot cards is a method in which a person picks a particular card that she has pre-determined before choosing from a row of 3 to 5 cards. I must say that Janice was pretty gifted at hot cards. I would probably not be half as good as her.
For some good 9 months in 2014, I met Janice every week as our children attended the same enrichment school. We would talk over coffee breaks and our conversations developed. ESP, meditations and such were our main discussion topics, even though she was a little afraid of what she may discover on her end. Something strange started to happen after our first conversation on symbols.
In that first conversation, I shared about symbols and synchronicity. She listened to my sharing, and perhaps half questioning what I said then. We parted and went on with our own lives for a week before we met again.
One week later.
During our coffee break, she shared something peculiar with me. She saw a pretty thick branch or rod on a grass patch one night. In the beginning, she thought it was a snake but discovered that it was not. In the same week, she also dreamt about death in one dream and about a new born in another dream. With her sharing, I revealed that snakes symbolise death and rebirth and that it matched perfectly with her dreams. Of course, being new to what I was sharing, she was skeptical. I told her to look for another "snake". The appearance of the next "snake" would affirm what she had seen or dreamt so far. It could appear anywhere. Again, we parted and went on with our own lives for a week before we met again.
Another week later.
This time, she came to me bewildered by what she had seen. She recounted how she waited for the snake for almost the whole week and felt bored keeping her eyes 'peeled' for a snake. Just before the week ended, she saw a picture of Medusa with ten snakes in the Editorial page of The Straits Times! Not one, but ten! Why not just one? Well, this was to send the message loud and clear that she didn't have to look for other snakes again! That was a lesson on synchronicity and the message was clear and precise; convincing her thoroughly.
Another week came, a new topic would surface naturally and organically, without any thoughts nor prior planning. Weeks went by and we began to realise a trend. The weekly topics discussed would be given to her as assignments by the Universe. Her progress was charted weekly! When we looked back, the sighting of those snakes and the dreams were signs and messages about a journey of transformation that she would begin with me.
Janice is, in fact, one of my 'brightest' students ever since I started to discuss and teach what I do. I hardly meet up with Janice this year as our children do not share the same time slot at the enrichment centre. However, her progress continues.
Whenever I share this story with people or even those who are into this work, some of them would ask me, "What if the Universe doesn't send the assignments?" Well, I have never thought about that. Do not doubt the Universe. The magic and energy stay on as long as the belief remains.
May this article open your eyes to your surroundings and the messages of the Universe.
With love and blessings,
