Was it Something More?
by Cheryl Melody Baskin
As you read my autobiographical stories, think about your own life. Was every situation and its outcome a result of pure coincidence, or was it something more?
I was driving on the highway. Suddenly, my car hit an oil slick. After spinning around for several minutes, the car stopped, and my door opened.
It was a busy highway. Why didn’t my car crash into other drivers? Why didn’t it catapult over the ravine? Should I interpret my glorious outcome as pure luck, or should I interpret it as something more?
I wasn’t looking for a relationship, but when I met “him,” something inside me said “he’s the one.” I just knew.
How did I “know?” Where does this intuitive sense come from?
In 1995, two American terrorists bombed the Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Shortly after this tragedy, I received a call. Dr. Leslie, a professor at the University of Oklahoma, wanted to bring seeds of healing to her grieving community and asked if I would be willing to perform a concert of hope.
Because I sensed that the request was directed by a whisper from the universe, I agreed to come right away.
It was held in an outdoor amphitheater; I was nervous, and my own heart was breaking. As I waited for the sound engineer to give me the nod to perform, a miracle occurred.
A beautiful butterfly flew on my microphone, lingered there, fluttered around my body, and then landed on my left shoulder. It felt as if the universe had just sent me a gift earmarked, “Special Delivery.” I knew that the butterfly was meant just for me. I also knew that it was sent as a mystical whisper of encouragement.
As I sang my “One Planet” song with the audience, I heard a strong inner voice say, “Don’t leave these beautiful people isolated in their grief. Find a way to connect them.”
Unexpectedly, a new idea flashed through my mind. I asked the audience to step off the bleachers to meet each other. Much to my amazement, they listened. As I looked out, I saw them hugging, shaking hands, crying, singing and introducing themselves to each other. In one magical moment of healing, we embodied one community of love, peace, unity and hope.
It was a life-changing moment. By following the heart of my inner voice, I suddenly understood my life purpose and the common thread of everything I do and everything I am.
Where does this Greater Energy come from? Where does our inner voice, intuition and highest wisdom come from? Is it contrived by the human mind, or is it real and unexplainable?
What about your life?
Have you ever experienced unexpected situations and magical outcomes? Think back. Can all your experiences be explained purely from a scientific and logical point of view, or is it possible that something more mystical was happening? Write your stories down. Although stories like mine can be interpreted as coincidence, what if they were propelled by something more?
