My life has been so magical lately that I just want to keep on getting out in it and see what happens next.
Today was a really long day–a 3 hour mountain bike ride in the heat of the day, 2 hours in the car to and from the trail head and I still found myself wanting to get out there and do something. Yes, I wanted a nap but honestly, I have been experiencing so much synchronicity that I just pushed through nap time and looked for more life to live.
When life starts to get in the groove and it seems like all cooperative components come together for your good, who wouldn’t want to squeeze more of that out of life? Here is a recent story:
One of my long time (16 year) training clients is taking a cholesterol lowering medication. I am not a fan of prescription medicine and this type of drug has many side effects.
I had given him a 3 part article on these effects so that he’d be aware and able to choose for himself.
I consider it my job to make sure he knows what I know and I try not to shove it down his throat but get him information which he can choose to do (or not do) something about.
On a Wednesday I had given him the articles to read then I saw him again on Saturday.
I had spontaneously sent him an email in the morning suggesting we take a hike instead of meeting at the gym as usual. To my surprise, he accepted (he hasn’t wanted to hike for about a year).
As we were driving to our hiking location, he explained that he read all three articles and they scared him. He looked into who wrote the articles and concluded that he wouldn’t trust their word.
He went to The Mayo Clinic site and got the information he wanted to hear…that they were safe and he didn’t need to supplement with CoQ10. The articles I had given him explained why it was extremely important to take CoQ10 if you were on cholesterol lowering medications.
As he told me, I listened but accepted what he said. I was just glad that I could do my part and I wasn’t attached to his decision to do (or not do) anything about it.
In the past, however, I would try to convince him every way I could. This day, though, I just let go and released any attachment to his decision.
On our way back he needed to stop at the pharmacy to pick up a prescription for his wife. I had never really talked to Raj, the homeopathic pharmacist (and traditional pharmacist) that he always raved about, so he was excited that I was along for the ride.
As he approached the counter, I browsed the isles and the different supplements they carried. I saw the CoQ10 supplement we had just been talking about and held it up for him and said, “look Arnold, here it is.”
The pharmacy technician at the counter commented on what a great supplement that is…especially for people who are on cholesterol lowering medications. Arnold said, “oh really, why is that?”
She explained all the technical details and I remained quiet…this was working out perfectly.
Then Arnold asked the pharmacist what he thought of the CoQ10 supplement…Raj agreed, “anyone who is taking a statin should take this, it is so important”. “Why didn’t Dr. Bateman tell me about this?”
The pharmacist explained that some doctors stick to their medical training only and don’t look into any alternative options. In the end, Arnold bought the supplement and I was thrilled.
What was so synchronistic about this was how perfectly all the information I had given him was validated by a brilliant pharmacist that he whole heartedly trusted. Had I not suggested us taking a hike instead of going to the gym we wouldn’t have been together in the pharmacy and I wouldn’t have picked up the CoQ10 to be our topic of discussion. It was so fun to witness.
I didn’t have to be pushy at all…I simply supplied the information, was unattached to the outcome then all cooperative components came together for the good of all.
Another cool part of this story is how Arnold reacted. Ordinarily, Arnold is such a skeptic regarding the premise of Law of Attraction and Synchronicity, he’s always rolling his eyes at me when I tell my stories.
On this day though, as we left the pharmacy he said, “you know Tara, that was all very synchronistic…had you not suggested the hike, we wouldn’t have been together to visit the pharmacy.” I was thrilled that he saw it right away!
I am just loving how this attraction based world of ours works. Sometimes all you have to do is want it then LET GO!!!

WONDERFUL! (And excellent info for me to have, since I’ve just started taking a statin… and wouldn’t you know my doctor said NOTHING about CoQ10 supplements 🙂
Susan…more synchronicity! I am glad I wrote this and you happened to read it!!! Make sure the CoQ10 dose is at least 100mg and be prepared, it is pricey. I recommend getting Premier Nutrition’s–it’s a tincture and you just sip it in water. You can’t find it in stores but Call 310 320-1132 and tell them that I referred you and they will give you a free bottle of another amazing supplement–Adaptogen (or at least they used to–not sure, anyway it’s worth a try). If you do get the regular supplement in health food stores, get the Jarrow brand but The Premier is the best and only available by phone, they’ll ship it or they have an office in Santa Monica on 6th. Just don’t forget to tell them I referred you and that you are anticipating a free bottle of Adaptogen 🙂
I love when this type of stuff happens. It’s a perfect reminder that life is perfect 🙂
wow, sounds like the story of being at agape at the right time for me to meet this amazing lady,, someone I have been checking out on facebook, and I kept asking the universe about her, to help me understand why i kept looking at her photo on FB,,, and there you — the Law of Attraction work for me, when I got out of the way, and met a Star face ti face that day,,, Wow Tara,, wish you could have seen that… I thank you for these writings — its good to hear from a soul that is conscious, and aware of law of attraction and helping us to know how to surrender to its perfect ways,,,,,,, Teach TARA Teach
