I don’t believe in coincidence – only synchronicity, and yesterday I found out once more just how wonderful it can be. We have a crystal shop and wellness centre near us, called Shamballa Crystal, which has just relocated to a more spacious premises where they have a beautiful studio for yoga, workshops etc. I’d been meaning to go since it opened a few weeks ago, and on Thursday, they put up a video about their new page.
It’s address is Formentera del Segura, a small town about 10 minutes drive from my home in Algorfa. I know Formentera pretty well, so I suggested to Glenys that we go and find it, have a browse, introduce ourselves then go and enjoy a drink at the refreshment kiosk in Formentera’s square. Off we headed, and drove around for about 20 minutes, looking for the shop, covering the same ground over and over. We decided to abort the mission for the day and just cut to the drinks stop.
As we approached the square, I asked the Parking Angels for a convenient space, since Glenys can’t walk too far. Lo and behold, there was a spot, right opposite the kiosk. Thanks, Parking Angels – you always deliver!
Our friends Alex and Bev often stop off in the square and as I parked the car, I thought how great it would be if they happened to be there, because I could then ask them where Shamballa was. It was cloudy and cool, so we headed for the awning rather than sitting outside, and who should open the door but Bev! They were there with friends, watching the school’s carnival parade in the square, and they saw us before we saw the. Synchronicity rules!
I bought us a lovely thick Spanish hot chocolate each and explained our mission to Alex, Bev and their friends Paul and Caroline, whose daughter had just taken part in the parade. Nobody seemed to know anything about the new shop, so I showed them the Facebook video, and Paul realised why we couldn’t find it. It was actually in Rojales, about a mile away, but because of its location, its actual address counted as Formentera. Confusing or what?
Anyway, it turned out the shop was just behind one of our favourite bars, so I parked the car by the river, installed Glenys in the bar and went off to find it. Owner Sarah wasn’t around, but I had a lovely chat with Diana, and bought some beautiful animal brooches to take back to England for my grandchildren later in the year. I love to pick up little bits and pieces for them that they couldn’t find locally.
Diana and I chatted about energy, and protecting ourselves from people who drain it, and I was so glad I’d found this lovely place. I know I’ll be spending lots of time there, and sending others there too. Diana told me they made the video because their customers had been having difficulty finding their new premises, and I told her how glad I was that I saw the video, and found someone who could explain exactly where the shop was.
I would have found Shamballa eventually, but I ended up with an unexpected half hour with friends, met new people and rounded it off with a lovely lunch back at the bar with Glenys. It was meant to be. But for the video, I wouldn’t have been in the area, but for the school parade, neither would my friends, and but for their friends, I wouldn’t have made a beautiful soul connection. Gotta love synchronicity!
