Coincidence – or a nudge from the Universe? You decide!


(*Woo-woo warning – I’m going to get a bit spiritual in this blog!)

Fully recovered from my bout of Covid, I’ve had another busy week this week.

As well as catching up with all my clients, I’ve been to Canterbury for a few days for another conference/mastermind.

Canterbury is where my coach and his team are based.

He was kind enough to invite a few of his favourite clients 🙂 to his offices for a special free mastermind day followed by a Christmas shindig.

It was a 10 hour/500 mile+ round trip for me, but there was no way I was missing the opportunity to learn some new stuff and mingle with some new people along the way.

Networking with like-minded people is a wonderful thing when you spend most of your week on your own working from home.

We’d all travelled from different parts of the UK to be there, and one lady had even flown in from Switzerland.

As is usual, we went around the room introducing ourselves and saying where we were all from.

It transpired that the guy sat on my left only lived 10 miles from me – he’d also driven 5 hours to be there – what a small world!

We’re meeting next week for coffee…

The same thing happened to me last year.

I signed up for a 12 week online programme – an international course with 300 women from all over the world.

As we introduced ourselves from all these far-flung places around the globe, one of the first people I met was a lady who also only lived 10 miles away from me.

We’ve now met many times and become firm friends since then.

I love it when things like that happen.

Some people think of them as coincidences but I’ve come to think of them as signs from the Universe that I’m in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing.

I believe everything happens for a reason.

We often don’t know what that reason is until way down the line when we look back.

It was Apple’s creator Steve Jobs who said:-

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.

So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”


If you look back on your life, what ‘coincidences’ have shaped things for you?

Have you ever missed out on a house, job, person or situation, only to receive a better house, job, person or situation further down the line?

I’m sure if you look back, you can join some dots.

Some detours and diversions that definitely turned out for the best.

Coincidences tend to come in 3 sizes – small, medium and large – or whoppers as I call them.

Whoppers usually make your mouth drop open.

I believe the Universe can do ANYTHING, and the whoppers are just proving that point.


I keep a journal of my coincidences.

I write all of them down – even the tiny ones.

There are truly no logical explanations for some of the things that have happened in my life and in the lives of my clients.

Some of the coincidence stories I hear are absolutely amazing.

I like to think that the Universe has the big picture, and we don’t, so rather than resisting it, we should harness this power and run with it.

The Universe creates a coincidence so that we meet the right people and circumstances in our life to help us achieve our dreams and/or goals.

Even the coincidences that are not pleasant are often sent to teach us something or to make us grow, so that we can move onto the next level.

It’s so important that we see these unpleasant things as lessons and we grow from them.

That’s why I write all of them down.


It’s been proven that people who believe in a protective higher power live longer, happier lives.

Some believe in a deity or religious conception of God, and that’s great, if it works for you.

I believe in nature and the Universe as my higher power.

Many 12 step programmes highly recommend relying on something greater than ourselves to give us the power that we lack.

It’s one of the main keys to their success.

It’s very reassuring to know that ‘something powerful’ is there for you and has your back.


It’s vitally important, if you want a great life, where you achieve your full potential and happiness, to actually know what your goals and dreams are.

It’s amazing how many people don’t put any thought into this.

Our goals must be thought out and then regularly communicated, or our higher power can’t help us.

You must communicate them through your subconscious mind.

Through journaling, meditating or visualising.

Anything that works for you.

And then focus, focus, focus on what you want, NOT what you don’t want.

Your higher power can’t help you if it doesn’t know what you need help with.

Try to get into these new habits.

On a regular basis mentally ‘talk’ to your chosen power.

I speak to the Universe every day.

When something goes well or falls into place, I thank the Universe.

I imagine us as the ultimate dream team working together.

When something goes badly I ask the Universe what it needs me to do differently.

When I have an important decision to make I always go into meditation and ask the Universe to guide me.

It responds with a feeling rather than words.

Then I take action based on that feeling.

I trust it completely, because it knows everything from a higher perspective than my own.

Some people call this their intuition or higher self.

That all seeing, all knowing part of us.

That’s fine too.


This may seem a little woo-woo for some of you.

A bit esoteric…but don’t dismiss it out of hand.

Most people pray after all, when they’re in crisis.

Why not allow something greater than yourself to help you?

We can’t prove that God or a Universe exists, but I know my own life has improved immeasurably since I started to live this way.

I 100% believe that I’m being supported in my life.

I want you to feel that too.

If you don’t already, why not give this a go.

I’m happy to support you in any way I can.


This will be my last blog of 2022.

I’ll be back again in 2023 though.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy, healthy New Year.

If you’re fed up of being fed up and ready to make some big changes then book a call.

Make 2023 the first year of your new happier, more confident life.

Much Love
