Some people are meant to cross our paths.

Over the years I have often thought about joining a Circle. You know, a psychic development circle.  There have been various reasons why I have never actually got as far as joining one. The timing has often been the main reason. I was offered the opportunity of joining a circle a week before I was due to move house. That didn't suit.  I was offered a circle opening on the night that I was attending evening classes. That didn't suit.  It has always been there at the back of my mind. When my son was small I was offered an opening in a Circle and it didn't suit because I didn't have any childcare. One church wouldn't accept me into their Circle because they didn't know me.  So, over the years I would say there have been numerous Circles that have 'nearly been'.  I didn't actually make it into any of them.  

This year, I have finished my degree with the Open University (another huge commitment that has taken up years of my life) and I have been elbowing my way back into the world of work. I am on my third part-time job in a row and I know that once I get the hang of my weekly routine, I will have more time on my hands than I haven't had for many years. So, now would be a good time to find a Circle.

A week before getting my latest job I was walking home after a Wednesday visit to see a particular Medium, the Irish lady called Rita who is taken along to the church by one of her four sons. Strolling along, I got chatting with Iris, a lady who also goes to the Church. I mentioned that I keep being told from the Pulpit, the Rostrum, up on the Stage, whatever you want to call it, that I am going to be sitting in a Circle. I always reply to the medium  

'No, not that I know of'.

 Iris told me that Rita's son, Peter, is looking for people to join his Circle on a Thursday, he goes to a Church in Southend.  So, off I trotted, the Sunday before starting work to the Southend Church.  I was given the telephone number of Sandy Walford, not Peter.  I just had a feeling that I should be asking to join the Circle on the Monday and not the Thursday.

I waited to call Sandy, I thought I will wait until after the Bank Holiday Monday, because no-one likes being disturbed at home on a Bank Holiday do they?  No, I will wait until the calls are cheaper on the Saturday and ring her then. If I remember.  Anyway, the days came and went, Wednesday was spent travelling to Birmingham for an overnight stay in a hotel ready for an early morning start at a Training Academy on Thursday and Friday. I started my new job on the Saturday morning, I met my new work colleagues, a lady who hadn't been present during my interview was there.  She is my new Assistant Manager, we got chatting and at the end of my first day she asked me if I am religious. 

'Are you religious?' she said.  

I told her that 'no, I wouldn't say I was religious, but I am spiritual and I do go to church'.  

It turns out that my new Assistant Manager has recently given up her place in a psychic circle and she has stopped going because she hasn't got time. 

'oh' I said. 'That's funny, because I have just found a space in a circle'.  

We looked at each other. 

'Sandy Walford from the church in Southend?' I said

'Are you sure?' she said

'Yes, I am absolutely positive'. Yes, of course, it was the same circle.  Not only that, but Lisa is due to become the daughter-in-law of Rita, by marrying her eldest son. So, I find myself replacing a person I have never met, only to meet them in a different setting.  

It truly is a small world. 

Lots of love and light to everyone who needs it.
