If it being a bit too good and understanding peoples emotions when they talk to you? Maybe it's just being empathic to the point others smile because you are smiling, you know those people who can light up a room or drag it down within seconds of being there? Maybe you are the person that when you say a heart felt prayer it almost always seems things do get better. Or you wish some one ill will and the next day the bad news is waiting for you about what happened to them.
As a kid my bedroom was struck by lightening...... twice in the same spot! So whoever said lightening never strikes the same spot twice.
Its a bit odd and Im yet to figure it out but it seems that people like us who experience all the kind of things I quoted which you said in the first quote... tend to have the very weird experiences such as like in your second quote.
I know someone from online from another website who has been himself struck by lightnning 3 times I think it was. I myself, thank God I havent been ever struck by lightnning or even had it very close to me but I too have had the weirdest of coincidences before.
My elderly friend in his 70s, sees this kind of stuff going on so often with me that he even thinks its weird the kind of "synchronisty" or coincidences which occur around me. Many people on the spiritual path say the more along one gets the more synchronisity one gets.. I dont know what i think about that but it may be the case).
eg I'd lost my purse in the middle of the city (I live in the country). My purse was randomly found by my daughters father, his girlfriend's friend and hence delivered back to my home. I didnt even report it to the police or cancel any of my credit cards. (my elderly friend had been trying to get me to report my missing purse to the police but I said, "dont worry, my things are like homing devices and some how it will come back to me". Seriously they do. Lost or stolen, I usually get back. It was so weird then to get a phone call from my own missing phone and hear a voice I knew on the other end of it.
The person who randomly found it (I hadnt told anyone I'd lost it) just happened to know my daughters father, his girlfriend and had heard of me and recognised my name in the phone so driven it to our country town where they'd had been planning to visit the other anyway and given it to her to phone me. So then my exes partner rings me on my missing phone.
As I said, I live in the country and lost that purse/phone in the middle of city, the busiest part of the city. Apparently my purse and phone were just sitting at a bus stop on the seat. Strangely I never caught the bus when I was there or sat on a seat. I'd left the phone/purse on the roof of the car and driven off. Forgetting they were on the roof. So someone must of picked them up from the road, sat them neatly on the bus stop seat and then strangely left them there (of cause all my money was still in it), for another who had heard of me throu the other, who knew me to find. Who had already planned to go to my country town to see their friend who knew me that weekend (so was only 2 mins from my country home the next day). Purse had been lost 50km from my home.
I call it willing. I wasnt going to report my purse missing as I just willed it to come back to me. (umm probably some call that kind of paranormal, who knows if it was or coincidental but as I said, my lost purses and usually other things ALWAYS come back. All I need to do is trust they will).
Compared to some of my other coincidences, this one isnt all that weird.. just very very lucky.
