Back in the day, to say that you met on the internet was a shocker of a statement. I know, because I was one of the many "internet daters" at the time. In fact, that is how I met my husband! It is a lot more common for people to meet online now.
But, this post isn't actually about dating...this is about the miraculous connections that are happening on the Internet...and Facebook to be specific.
Before moving to California 8 months ago, Facebook was merely a tool for staying connected to friends and family, especially those who live far away. In the past 8 months I can come to learn that the Internet is so much more than I originally thought! I have made new friends very quickly on Facebook ~ and made connections with people literally all over the globe!
I have a story to share with you, about how I met my soul sister this weekend. We met in person within 12 hours of "meeting" on Facebook. She lives a state away from me in location. This is a great story, and I hope you enjoy it. It has changed my life forever! ♥
It was Friday morning and I was doing my usual "networking" within the Facebook Spiritual community. Pages share pages, and somehow we all end up connecting with one another. It's really a quite amazing phenomenon, I think. Anyway, I saw this page shared (by another page) and clicked on it: Sherryl Frauenglass: A Woman's True Voice. I posted on Sherryl's wall to say hello, and let her know that "Mystic" was her new follower...and I also noticed that she was from Phoenix, Arizona. I just moved from Arizona a few months ago, so I felt that connection that you have with "home"...I think you know what I mean, don't you? ;o) So, I posted this on her wall:
Mystic Sea Angel just joined your page! Glad to connect with you here! I just moved from Tucson. ;o) Lots of love to your page! ♥ Beth
This was not an "out of the ordinary" post for me, as I introduce myself on most pages that I join....but I had no idea that this one post would change my entire world in a matter of hours!
Here was the response:
Welcome Beth. I love that you are in Tucson and have a page with "sea" in the title! So funny, I'm heading to Temecula in about 10 minutes! I'm up here in Phoenix and I do come to Tucson occasionally. Perhaps we'll meet face to face some day. ♥ Sherryl
If you know of anyone in Temecula who you think would enjoy tonight's event, please let me know. It's going to be fabulous! https://www.facebook.com/events/317064785013130/
She had posted her phone number, and within a couple hours we were talking on the phone (meanwhile, she is literally on her way to Temecula.....I live in Temecula!) As soon as I heard her voice, I knew there was a connection - definitely a soul connection, no doubt in my mind. I rearranged my evening plans, and by 7:00pm on Friday night I was sitting next to my Soul Sister! As soon as I saw her, we gave huge smiles and a great big hug. It was Sisters meeting once again! Words can not describe the love and joy I felt for connecting with this beautiful soul that night. ♥
The amazing part about this story is that Sherryl was literally out the door to drive to Temecula, when her inner guidance told her to check her Facebook before she left. She was feeling rushed and late already, so she almost dismissed this message. But thankfully for us, she listened....opened up her laptop....to find my wall post there in front of her! Had she not listened, we might have missed this connection ~ at least until the Universe could rearrange itself for our meeting. ;o) Thankfully we got the connection on the first try this time! LOL! We were clearly meant to meet this weekend and rekindle a connection that probably spans many lifetimes.
We met for coffee at Starbucks on Sunday morning, and not that we needed more confirmation, but the first thing the Barista said when she took one look at us was,
"Are you two sisters?" I am so blessed to have a new friend & sister to walk this journey with. She is such a delight! ♥
The moral of the story is: Always listen to your inner guidance! You never know what is right around the corner, that you can't see...but the Universe can! ♥♥♥
I can't even begin to tell you about the wonderful event Friday night ~ I actually met a group of beautiful souls who are here to walk this journey with me. Marilyn Harper, with the help of Adironnda & Company, put on an event that has literally changed my life forever!
I have been awakened...but that is a story for another time....! ;o)
