Does Coincidence Truly Exist?

Is it by design or default?

Much has been said about coincidence and whether or not it is by design or default. But no one truly knows this except for the universe. Even the people involved in this mix-up are blind too.

Come to think of it, it is difficult to plan for things to coincide and they do so because there are a lot of variables at play, some of which you have no control over. You need another hand to push things for you. This is where nature comes in. You may have your plans but again, the universe has its own. Your success or failure heavily depends on whether your plans are in sync with those of the universe.

You have to fully commit everything to it if you want to fulfill your plans. This is an example of a perfect coincidence – you planned to meet a long-time friend but you did not tell them. Instead, you meet them at the mall while doing your shopping. Who arranged for the both of you to be in the same place at the same time?

Zero competition.

There is no competition whatsoever between nature and yourself except that which is in your mind. Do not give up planning because you think that everything is pre-meditated and you begin to question your role. Consider the example of a family – an institution with the blessings of the universe.

There is no competition between the parents on superiority or about who the kids love the most. Their roles complement each other and together they raise the children nature has blessed them with.

Right from the foundation, how comes a man who has always desired a child (male or female) to take after him then finally finds a woman with the same dreams as his? I leave it to you to interpret whether or not this is a coincidence. Your breakthrough begins to manifest the moment you begin to trust nature with your desires and ambitions.

The upper hand.


Since there is zero competition, have you learned the sign languages of the universe to get an upper hand in manifesting coincidences? The universe has an upper hand in making them work for us because YES, coincidences truly exist. If it were up to us, we would use it every time but we do not have a monopoly on controlling events. Here is some insight about coincidences:

  1. A coincidence is an accident.

The mention of an accident makes people freak out because they evoke bad memories. However, there are some good accidents – the ones crafted by nature. It is a bad coincidence to have a car crash just when a trailer was speeding on the highway. Had you delayed for a minute, you would have been safe.

At the same time, it is a good accident to meet your soul mate and potential husband/wife at a wedding of a mutual friend. Who knew that you would benefit from such a coincidence? The universe knows it all. Follow its leadership.

  1.  Listen to your spirit.

The spirit communicates with the universe fluently with zero barriers. When something good or bad is about to happen, your spirit is the first person to get this communication. The problem arises when you do not pay attention to it.

Coinciding events happen like a bombshell that disrupts your life. Listen to what your inner voice is telling you even when you do not fully understand it. It could be the only savior. Have you ever heard of someone narrating how certain events saved them from a disaster? It could be that you were about to hurriedly drive to work because you were late.

Before you leave, your daughter cries for your attention and you are forced to go back to soothe her. Little do you know that this is a delay tactic from the universe to save you from a road accident (God forbid!).

  1.  The third side of the coin.

Some things have always been there. You just did not see it at the right time. It could be ignorance or failing to pay attention to what is under your nose. It becomes a coincidence (good or bad) because you failed to see it coming.

Small events in your life culminate into much bigger things that you had not even thought of. Sometimes this build-up could be passive and unless you are keen enough, you would see coincidences all over. Many unpleasant events in your life are preventable if you stop looking far away. You score big by seeing the blind spots in your life.

However, there is a catch – you could be biased when you oversee your life yourself. Thereafter, you start blaming the universe for a series of coincidental bad luck. It is high time you have a prefect!

 Why a prefect?

The idea of a prefect is laughable. Traditionally, a prefect is a senior pupil in school who oversees his peers. He is mandated with enforcing discipline and this is the reason why you need one to help you see the grey areas of your life. A prefect figure in your life is unbiased. They will help you identify bad habits and how to overcome them. Hey there! Here’s a life fact – your prefect is a messenger of the universe. Accept their guidance.

  1.  You could be just paranoid.

Once bitten twice shy. You could be over-paranoid when you see coincidences everywhere. You could also be fearful about future events because something bad happened to you once. Do not be quick to dismiss your intuition but be careful not to label everything a coincidence. The universe’s prefect could be the person you need to overcome this paranoia.

  1.  Coincidence could be a means of fulfilling destiny.

Not all coincidences are bad. Some could be the path the universe wants you to take for the sake of your afterlife. As such, do not go out guns blazing when things coincide in your life. It could be some means of communication that is a pointer in the direction of your destiny.

Follow the cue and unleash the potential within you. Matter of fact, a coincidence could be the breakthrough you have been waiting for.

In light of this information, can you judge whether coincidences truly exist? Your able helper – the universe – is out here to guide you through such new territories.

Please Tend to Your Garden

Where is your garden?

Have you ever dreamt of having a small garden just next to your kitchen? I heard someone jokingly call it “kitchen garden” and something struck me. It’s a kitchen garden because what is grown there directly goes to the kitchen, unlike other gardens whose crops could be grown for sale, maybe. Do you tend to the kitchen garden differently from other gardens? 

Yes, this should be the case because the vegetables grown there are for domestic use. You have no one to blame when you do not tend to it well and the vegetables grow unhealthy. Similarly, where the universe has placed you is your kitchen garden. You have the responsibility to take care of it because you are in charge. You have no one to blame should things go wrong.

Take ownership of your garden.

There is special attention you give to something that you own. Some kind of love and connection exists. You feel attached to it and you prioritize its interests. When you take ownership of your garden, this is exactly what happens – you pay attention to what is grown and how well they do because it is you who will have to put up with unhealthy vegetables in your kitchen.

Now you don’t want that, do you? First of all, you determine what you grow. You decide whether to grow kales, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, or cauliflower. This is about a kitchen garden at your home. How much so about the environment you live in? Do you want to breed conflicts, bad blood, fights, unhealthy competition or you would prefer peace and tranquility?

As the owner of the space that nature has blessed you with, you have to be careful what you adopt in your life because it could have very strong effects soon.

Watch what energy you emit to the universe.

You know of the different types of energy – electrical, thermal, chemical, nuclear, motion, and even sound energy. They are produced under different conditions and each has its pros and cons. Coming back to your personal life, reflect on what energy you emit.

Are you responsible for inciting other people to violence or are you a peacemaker? You may not know it but the universe is closely observing the energy you radiate and shall give the same back to you in equal measure. As you watch the energy cycle you find yourself in, here is how you can make the best out of it:

  1.  Renewal of your mind.

Going back to your kitchen garden and how the energy you emit to the universe affects the vegetables you grow, you have to start with the renewal of your spirit. Tending to your garden involves having a clear conscience about the things you have done.

Your mind and spirit should be as pure as possible if you want the universe to help you have the best vegetables in your garden. Think of positive things and consider how you can beautify your garden instead of spoiling those of other people.

  1.  Conflict management.

Among the things that affect the energy cycle in your life as well as your beautiful kitchen garden is how well or not you manage conflicts. There is no way you can entirely avoid them but you can handle them maturely and the universe shall say “bless you, my child.” What greater blessing could be there than this one?

Observe that you are not trapped in a web of revenge. It is like toxins in your garden and your vegetables shall not do well. They will wither no matter how hard you try to water them. The real problem lies with the toxins of revenge. You become blind to any rational thinking and your mind sort of becomes fixed at one point.

Resolve to practice forgiveness and make it your mantra. The universe shall reward you for it. No good deed goes unrewarded and you will be a candidate for an award. What prestige!

  1.  Mind your association.

You are as good or bad as the company you keep. Some friends will impurify your kitchen garden and kill what you have taken long to grow. You do not want that, do you? After preparing your kitchen garden and your vegetables start growing, you naturally watch out for weeds.

They will suffocate your vegetables and compete with them for water and nutrients. It is a case of a big boy bullying his juniors in school. Unless the teacher (who is you) comes to the rescue of the younger boy, then the bullying shall not stop. You own this kitchen garden and nobody shall come to your aid if you don’t do weeding on time.

The universe wants you to do weeding and get rid of the toxic company that suffocates you in your space. This is your responsibility.

  1.  Embark on a journey of self-discovery.

Tending to your garden also means loving it so much enough to take care of it. What better way is there than self-care? As you would add fertilizer to your garden and do some irrigation because you want to enrich the soil, similarly tend to your spirit.

The universe marvels at how much effort we put into inanimate objects while we cannot nourish our spirits. This responsibility lies squarely on your shoulders and is part of the beautification of your kitchen garden. It is natural to take care of what you love.

The universe is screaming at you to channel some love to yourself to be capable of caring for your beautiful kitchen garden. This duty is non-transferable.

  1.  Guard your spirit against defilement.

Would you allow people to dump in your kitchen garden? Of course not! Similarly, guard your spirit from defilement. You are not a dumpsite for impurity, negativity, and bad energy.

As such, do not entertain people who dampen your positive energy or slow you down. They are baggage that will make you miss the target. Considering how no non-sense you would be when kids play in your kitchen garden, apply an equal effort or more when guarding your spirit from defilement. On noticing your spiritual guard, the universe shall strengthen you to stay on the right track.

Eventually, your kitchen garden shall produce the best for you because you deserve it. As you read this blog post, have you made up your mind to tend to your garden? If not, please make haste.
