It's Your Birthday

So yesterday I stopped at a grocery store on my way to go hiking in the mountains.  There was an old lady right outside the door talking to a little girl.  They were talking about her age and I heard the old lady say, "You'll be in school soon!"  To which the adult who the girl was with said, "She had her first day of school today!"  The old lady responded with, "Happy birthday!"  That struck me as an odd response as I walked through the door to the store.

 Immediately upon entering the store, about five steps in, I heard a completely different person (at the customer service desk) say, "Happy belated birthday!"  The timing made this stand out in my mind right away and I thought, "OK, what's going on here right now?"

At the end of the day, my wife and I dropped a load of stuff off at the Goodwill near where we are staying.  She  spotted a pile of stuff that somebody had left near another thrift store that just closed its doors, so we went to check it out.  I had recently decided that I needed some clothes for job interviews.  When I got there, I found a garbage bag full of clothes that are exactly my midget size.  This might not seem like a big deal to you.  If that's the case, you're obviously not a 5'5'' grown man.

I was reminded of birthdays as a young kid, when you get all the stuff you need -- a year's worth of socks, underwear, and pants -- but none of the toys you were asking for. LOL.  So, "Happy birthday to me," I thought.  (It isn't literally my birthday for the record)

This begged the question, "So to whom do I owe these thanks?"

That's when I pulled this out of the bag:

And was reminded of the 1008 names of God. (There wasn't a phone in the box)

I don't know if there's a more clear way that the universe could tell a person that they are being Divinely taken care of, kept in a safe way, if you will.  Thank you, Sri Ganesha. OM Gam Ganapataye Namaha!


  1. That is clearly communication from the super soul.
    All the crumbs to lead us home I feel are placed ahead of our path as we are internally resigned to our designated cadence. I am grateful to hear this and I hope I can read more Synchro Swami happenings. I never get tired of hearing about or being blessed to witness these gracious words, numbers, archetypes, scenes, conversations, symbols, emotions, and chance meetings of perculiar people. Guru's grace and Synchroncity are synonyms I feel

  2. Daily meditative & spiritual practices and devotional emotion to the divine really seem to be the key to unlock this synchronicity. It's what I personally have noticed anyway.

  3. Thank you, Sri Satnamji, I couldn't have said it better myself. :)
