Follow t he Tw ink le Light s? Epiphany: a Moment of Sudden Revelat ion or Insight . By The Law yer of At t r act ion, Paula Kidd Casey When I think of attempting to write about a specific ?epiphany? in my life, I am, quite frankly, at a loss. I equate an epiphany with a bolt of lightning bringing sudden insight, or an out of body or near- death experience. I picture a large flashing light bulb appearing over my head with an arrow pointing toward the ?Truth?. I would be disingenuous to write a story about this subject as I have never experienced such a revelation. I would also venture a guess that this would apply to a vast majority of people. But what I can do is share some ideas with which, I believe, others can identify. Instead of the ?light bulb moments?, I have what I call the ?little twinkle light? moments. Small coincidences that when they occur seem somewhat magical and demand my attention, if only for an instant. They cause me to catch my breath and wonder at the serendipity of life. I then, for a brief moment in time, feel a connectedness to something larger than myself. Some examples that come to mind include: a chance encounter with an old friend you were just thinking about; a book loaned to you that has the exact answer you were looking for; finding your keys in the same place you have looked for them three times before; hearing a song on the radio that soothes your broken heart; taking a wrong turn and ending up meeting the love of your life; or maybe what you thought was a disaster turns out to bring something wonderful. My life, in retrospect, has so many twinkle lights I could be mistaken for a Christmas tree. I was stood up by a blind date, but through a series of misadventures ended up meeting my husband. I received an email out of the blue that led me to my new profession. A post on Facebook allowed me to take my business to a much higher level. A beautiful, lamented book mark appeared in a gutter as I was at a low ebb in my life with the quote ?God blessed the world with special women like you?. Rejections turned into much better opportunities. Chance encounters have led to very cherished and unexpected friendships. They were all small detours and messages at the time, but together Page 56
