What I’m about to tell you may be too “mystical” for you to believe. And you may think I’m reading too much into the situation. Either way, here’s what happened:
He was about 20 feet away from me and was wearing a football jersey.
At first I thought nothing of this situation. I looked down and began to highlight the section, then I turned my gaze a bit to the side, pondered what I’d just seen for a moment, then looked straight forward again.
“What did it say on that jersey again?”
Plain as day. Right before my eyes the name….
Now, I realize this may appear to be nothing more than a coincidence – but Wayne Dyer was a big believer that our so-called coincidences are anything but coincidences.
Nearly two years ago, for example, I put on a Super Bowl jersey and went to breakfast. The jersey was from Super Bowl XVIII (43). I’d never worn this jersey at any other time than when I attended this game, which was held in Tampa.
As I ate breakfast that Sunday, a number of people made note of my jersey. I began to wonder why I was wearing it.
Later that day my Dad called to tell me my mother was in emergency at the hospital. Before I picked up the phone I heard a voice telling me the eventual outcome. I rushed to my Dad’s home to pick him up.
When I saw my Mom I knew she was not going to make it. This was her time.
And then, when I overhead my Dad giving the nurse my Mother’s date of birth, I instantly knew why I was wearing that jersey. It was symbolic of Mom’s birthday – 4-30 – but reduced to 43 for obvious reasons.
Okay, okay. I get it. Both of these experiences were just random events that I’m assigning some sort of arbitrary meaning to in order to understand the “human condition.”
Perhaps. Then again, perhaps not.
I guess I’m in the You’ll See It When You Believe It crowd. If you haven’t read this Wayne Dyer classic, I suggest you order it, because the opening story in this book makes what I just told you seem like nothing.
In fact, when you’re really in touch with how your automatic success mechanism works, as Dr. Maltz would say, these sort of coincidental experiences are anything but random – unless you think everyday occurrences still qualify as meaningless.

P.S. Here’s a passage from yesterday’s email that may provide a clue as to what happened at breakfast yesterday (pay attention to what is underlined and italicized):
“In his latest book, I Can See Clearly Now, Wayne wrote about the positive influence Psycho-Cybernetics had upon him and how it changed his life for the better. Due to Dr. Dyer’s positive personal touch to my life, I included him in the foreword to the updated and expanded version, Psycho-Cybernetics, Updated and Expanded, due out November 3. My only wish is that the book were published for him to see the reference before he passed.
Then I remember, this is the man who wrote books about the mystical, magical and mysterious. Why not visualize that he will see it? Not in human form, but in spirit.”
