“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coehlo
When you truly focus on a goal, the universe is there to help you achieve it. Pieces fall into place, relationships develop and synchronicity happens. Aristotle, one of our greatest philosophers, believed that there is always a reason for everything that happens. Your experiences are designed to shape you, define you, and hopefully grow you into your highest potential possible.
In June 2015 that’s exactly what happened in Chicago for Four Pillars. We attended the Celebrate Your Life conference to connect with national speakers for the sole purpose of bringing them to Four Pillars and the Lakewood Ranch/Sarasota area. Celebrate Your Life conferences are produced by Mishka Productions, led by Liz Dawn for almost 20 years. They attract people from all over the world and feature workshops and presentations from internationally renowned inspirational speakers and NY Times Best Selling Authors who have appeared on thousands of television shows and radio programs.
Just some of the featured speakers included:
- James Redfield, Author of The Celestine Prophecy
- Neale Donald Walsch, Author of Conversations with God (NYTimes Best Seller, 2 years)
- Panache Desai, Author and International Speaker
- Dr. Joe Dispenza, Author of You Are the Placebo
- Andy Dooley, Vibration Activation and Law of Attraction Expert
- Arielle Ford, Author of The Soulmate Secret
- and more
Synchronicities started for Four Pillars upon registration for the event. Changes to flight schedules, changes to attendees and more all happened for a reason. One of our goals was to have one on one time with speakers to tell them about Four Pillars and peak their interest in bringing their phenomenal messages and presentations to Lakewood Ranch.
After traveling on a Friday to the event, we settled into the hotel to regroup for a full evening of the opening celebration. While regrouping in the hotel room, we talked about some of the goals for the weekend. One was to talk with Dr. Joe Dispenza about being a speaker at Four Pillars. To prepare, we developed and practiced an “elevator speech”—the 30-second pitch you give someone to tell them about your company’s mission. Shortly after practicing our elevator speech in the hotel room, we stepped onto the elevator and who do you think entered with us? Yes! Dr. Joe Dispenza. Talk about synchronicity and serendipity. And, yes, after giving our elevator speech, he agreed it was destiny! He also later laughed at the “elevator speech” story!
There were many other coincidental conversations at just the right time during the weekend. We even learned that Andy Dooley (a Law of Attraction expert and the most energetic Vibration Activation coach) went to Ringling College of Art and Design right in our own backyard. He is thrilled to come back to his stomping grounds and bring his messages to Lakewood Ranch.
After the conclusion of the conference, Cheri was standing in the lobby thinking if there was anyone else she wished she had connected with. And Ariel Ford came to mind. Sure enough, Ariel was the next person that walked by, and the “elevator speech” came in handy one final time.
Look for synchronicities in your life. They are a sign that you are on the right path! Follow us for more to come on these awesome speakers and exactly when they will be coming to Four Pillars!
