Maybe this happens to you too. Something random happens to you and then suddenly, out of the blue, 2 or 3 or 4 more things connected to that one thing happen shortly after.
Here’s an example: As far as I know, before a month ago, I never, in my life, heard the word ‘Antietam’. As detailed in my previous blog, my wife and I and some friends took a day trip to the Antietam Battlefield last month while vacationing in the area. This past Friday my wife was at the hair salon and out of the blue someone says: “There’s this General that was injured at Antietam…” Antietam is not an everyday topic of conversation and is nowhere near as common as, say, Gettysburg in this area. So when someone starts talking about it, and we just visited there a month ago, it’s a pretty unique connection.
To make the connection even more interesting is the subject of the conversation about Antietam. The reason that Antietam came up in conversation is because a woman was in the hair salon earlier in the day with a book that her husband has written. It turns out that her husband Jeffrey Keene, is strongly convinced that he is the reincarnation of General John B. Gordon who fought for the Confederacy during the U.S. Civil War and was injured during the Battle of Antietam. Jeffrey Keene has written a book,”Someone Else’s Yesterday“, chronicling his unusual discovery and the evidence of his past life identity. I was handed the book while in the salon and was quickly engrossed in the story. When it was time to leave I had difficulty putting the book down. It is a fascinating story and very well written, I’m hoping to be able to purchase a copy from the author so that I can continue. You can read a synopsis of Jeffrey Keene’s past life identity case here. And check out the video from the TV show “Proof Positive”
I don’t know if it’s just coincidence or if I’m more keyed in to noticing, or if it’s a true “connection” of some sort, but I find these ‘connections’ fascinating. And in the case of Jeffrey Keene, when he did the research he revealed that those random coincidences might not have been so random after all.
