In describing our spiritual state, to a Unity Church audience, I asked "Have you ever been around someone that sucks the living energy out of you or others that lift you up? That is the power of our Spirit and you can feel it.
I recently spent 6 weeks in Sedona with some good friends that always have a lifting effect. These friends have been so inspired and transformed by the work of Dr David Hawkins MD that they moved from around the world to Sedona to study his work. Hawkins advised that at a certain level of consciousness we experience everything unfolding in perfect synchronicity. With a profound willingness to serve, if a place to go popped into Hawkins' mind, even if it was on a busy street, when he would drive there, with exquisite timing, a parking spot would open up.
I have been experiencing life unfold in incredible synchronicity for quite some time. I tell everyone that there is nothing special about me, and by adopting Hawkins work, anyone can experience this if they wish. In brief it requires the progressive relinquishment of one's personal will for Divine Will, the willingness to serve the highest good and the humility to ask for and follow guidance. The closer we get to surrendering our weak personal will for the expansive Divine Will, which is billions of times more powerful, then the more we experience miracles and synchronicities.
What is difficult to accomplish with our personal will is effortless with Divine Will. This is what Jesus taught to his disciples when he advised them to go out and speak, and they will given what to say. Once the Apostles committed to serving the greater good then Divinity supported their every move. A couple years back a Unity Minister in Kitchener advised that they were following guidance in asking me to speak at their Church. Once it was determined that I would speak there, I didn't want to think about it anymore. In a flash I was given everything that I needed to speak about. So I didn't have to prepare the speech. All I had to do was show up and so I did, without any notes, and I spoke to the group. If you wish to listen to this completely unrehearsed lecture that was delivered spontaneously, they recorded the Experiencing Miracles & Synchronicity lecture. It's available at this link for free: http://www.andrewfacca.com/hear.html This picture below, is the spot in Sedona, I discussed in this lecture.
The more we are able to surrender our personal will and desires the less planning we have to do. When we know that Divinity has out back there is very little need to plan. Without needing to think ahead and plan there is very little anxiety. I just returned a few hours ago from visiting the Buddha Relics in Pittsburgh and am sitting at a café writing at the moment. I have no idea what I will be doing tomorrow or even later on today. When it happens then I will know.
In Sedona in early September I had dinner at the Chocolate Tree Café with my friends Daniel, Todd & Jenn. A young couple was about to play some music in the outdoor garden but first asked the audience if anyone wanted to partake in a ceremonial drink of warmed raw cacoa, mixed with a bunch of different elixirs. So we partook and formed a circle with about six others. We listened to the music dudes ten minute diatribe on all the different herbs that went into this concoction before taking a minute to drink this little cup of hot chocolate. It was pretty delicious.
The next day Daniel sends Todd and I an email asking if we wish to attend a rare opportunity to listen Steve Hardison speak. I had no idea who Steve was or what he was speaking about, but it felt good so I went. I picked up Daniel and we drove to Phoenix. All we had was an address. It turns out Steve was speaking at a Mormon Church. I had never been to a Mormon Church and didn't know everyone dresses in suits and ties and their Sunday best. I wore shorts and sandals. Even though I was under dressed all the people in the church were extremely warm and welcoming.
He broke down a couple times and could hardly get the words out. When we speak from the heart and really feel Divine Love it is very difficult to speak. With the willingness to serve others to the best of his ability and the confidence that that only comes from the knowledge that one is being guided by Divinity, he delivered with flawless perfection. Many of his successful students including authors Steve Chandler and Rich Litvin have testified to the value received from Steve. Having employed over 500 people and mentoring and coaching many others throughout my life, I can pick out a great mentor in heart beat, and certainly Steve is the real deal. He is not only accomplished but kind, friendly and welcoming. After the service he invited this group of thirty back to his house for some food and drink.
When we were at the house Steve had stacks of about a dozen best selling books that were written by his students. He generously offered them all to us for free and advised we could take as many as we wish. Having been immersed in business for most of my life there are few lessons left to learn hence the books did not appeal to me personally. They do have immense value to anyone interested in business or coaching so I was drawn to take 4 books. I knew that they would be of benefit to someone in the near future but did not know who at the time. As I will write in my next blog, a couple weeks later they were delivered by Divinity with such precision right into the hands of some people that could benefit most, that I was simply the delivery boy following the Map that was provided to me intuitively.
Back at Steve's house, when we were standing around the book table, Daniel recognized someone in the house at that time. It turns out he was one the ten in the group that made a circle to sip the chocolate drink concoction at Chocolate Tree Café the day before. Incredible. Here is a guy in some random circle drinking chocolate in Sedona and the next day we see him again inside of Steve's house. It seems he and Daniel had some things to discuss.
I took this picture of Daniel and Steve in Steve's kitchen. People pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend time with him and travel from around the world to meet with him at his home for coaching sessions. Daniel, Todd and I met Steve had the opportunity to spend some time with Steve at his house. it just happened on its own without any effort or planning. There are no accidents and everything unfolds in perfect synchronicity as a consequence of who we have become. What is seemingly impossible for the personal will is effortless with Divine Will. The more we live by what was meant in the Lord's prayer, "Thy Will be done"... the more life becomes increasingly joyful and effortless.
