How You Can Tap Into
the Magic of
by Jill Wellington
While I was a television news
reporter for eighteen years, running down stories about
everything from government scandals to house fires, I had
coincidences so remarkable, my co-workers dubbed it
Wellington Luck. I had it almost every day, and totally
relied on it.
One cold winter day I was
assigned a story about a little boy with cancer who needed
money for a bone marrow transplant. Despite a predicted
snow storm, the photographer and I set out to find the
child’s rural home several hours away. Soon the streets
were sodden with the new fallen snow, and after hours of
driving we felt hopelessly lost. We could not find the
boy’s street. Several times, the photographer suggested we
return to the station, but I had to help this child’s
Suddenly our news van plowed
into a snow bank and was instantly wedged. The photographer
gunned the motor, but the vehicle would not budge. “This is
it,” he bellowed as he opened the car door. “When I get us
out of this snow, we’re going back.”
“No!” I grabbed the cell
phone and called the boy’s father. Imagine our shock when
the man walked out of the house three doors down from the
snow bank and waved to us. How lucky the snow stopped us in
the perfect place!
I never took the time to
figure out why I had this magic in my life. It wasn’t until
I was forty years old and introduced to my spirit guide
during a guided meditation that I realized the enormous
behind-the-scenes guidance we all receive.
I was open to the concept of
spirit guides since I grew up with a psychic mother who
studied this stuff. But once I met “Fred”, my own guide, my
life changed dramatically. I began to journal with him
every morning. He set me on a wider course of meaningful
coincidences that he called synchronicity.
My mother Edna Mae Holm, was
experiencing the same phenomenon, and we compared notes
daily. She was led to find an earring she lost years
earlier. My schedule was changed at work, and I amazingly
met a woman on the late shift that taught me how to journal
with Fred my spirit guide. We delighted in the many amazing
stories of synchronicity and realized they happen to
everyone…all the time, but we rarely take the time to
Mom and I studied the concept
for six years. Actually our spirit guides forced us to
live it by arranging all kinds of synchronicity. It
took us awhile to realize they wanted us to pay closer
attention to the guidance. Sure, Mom and I read many books
on the topic, but rarely did we really tap into it
ourselves. We learned how synchronicity works first hand
by living it.
Fred told me many times to
simply ask a question, and expect an answer, then let it go
for him to work on it. That’s the easy part, it’s also the
most difficult thing in the world to do. My mind was always
spinning with possible outcomes, and I felt angry and
frustrated when my own little scenario did not work out.
The turning point for me came
when I took a trip to New York City with my children. Our
flight was scheduled to arrive near midnight and we needed
to check into our hotel by one a.m. clear across Manhattan.
My husband was worried about me arriving into that massive
city so late. I decided this was the perfect opportunity to
really test Fred. I said, “I’m just going to trust
synchronicity will work out something special.”
Sure enough, our plane landed
close to midnight along with two other planes, with a throng
of passengers clamoring around baggage claim. My children’s
luggage immediately appeared, and I was thanking
synchronicity. But my plump suitcase was nowhere in sight.
“Mom, what if your bag didn’t
make the connection?” my daughter Lindsay asked.
“That would be perfect!
I won’t have to haul it. They’ll bring it to the hotel.” I
was not going to cave into my usual fear. Eventually, most
of the passengers claimed their bags, and scurried out to
hail a taxi. As the area emptied, I finally saw my
suitcase, the last one to round the conveyor belt. We were
the only people left in baggage claim, and when we walked
outside, the line for a taxi was down the street. We were
dead last in that line.
My daughter gave me a frantic
look, and I immediately said, “Isn’t this perfect?
We’re last in line. This is the perfect place to
be!” For the first time in my life, I was totally trusting,
and not looking at the appearance of things.
Almost immediately a man clad
in a spiffy tuxedo popped up and said, “I will take you in
my stretch limousine to your hotel.” He quoted a nominal
fee. I was flabbergasted, but immediately accepted.
Once settled inside the
sumptuous limo, the driver revealed he was a tour guide and
proceeded to point out the remarkable sites of New York
City. I sat in that luxury, on a beautiful, moonlit night,
listening to this special man who Fred selected just for us
and finally understood synchronicity. We can never figure
out something as incredible as our guides, so why not turn
everything over to them and enjoy this enchantment all the
It’s time to let go of the
silent rage and frustration. When things look bleak, we
need to say, “Isn’t this perfect?” Remember, you may
have to be last in line to catch the limo ride.
Mom and I wrote a mystery
novel together during this time, and soon Fred told us we
must include a spirit guide in our next novel showing the
concept of synchronicity in action. The book is titled
Fireworks and plunks a crusty detective named Webb
Hannis into the middle of a murder mystery. Hannis suffers
a head injury at the Fireworks Festival, and when he
awakens, he can see his spirit guide Samuel.
Hannis balks at Samuel who
tries to get the detective to follow synchronicity to solve
“Through this book, the reader
can begin to see what is happening on the spirit side to
create meaningful coincidences,” Edna Mae says. “With this
insight, people can tap into synchronicity all the time and
bring joy and tranquility to their lives.”
Since we launched Fireworks
in the United States, Mom and I have received many letters
from people telling how they now enjoy the charm of
synchronicity. A woman named Tammy wrote that her son was
leaving for a choir competition early one morning. At
seven-thirty the night before, she realized she had not
picked up his uniform from the dry cleaner. She immediately
panicked, knowing the dry cleaner closed at seven.
Suddenly she remembered our
message of synchronicity and rushed to the shop anyway. She
found the worker at the front door fumbling with a key in
the lock. Turns out the woman had been standing there for a
half hour trying to get the key to lock the door. Once
Tammy received the uniform, the door locked with ease!
You don’t have to be psychic,
or gifted to utilize synchronicity. It is simply paying
attention to your innate intuition. Mom and I hope to
spread this simple, yet extraordinary magic throughout the

How to tap into synchronicity
1. Pay close attention to
people you run into by accident. Listen to what they
tell you, or say what pops into your mind. You may have a
message for them!
2. The more you notice
meaningful coincidences, the more they multiply.
3. If you are having a
particular problem, decide to turn it over to
synchronicity. That means letting it go completely.
4. Always trust even when
outward appearances seem bleak. That’s when the good stuff
is happening behind the scenes!
5. Anger and frustration
stops synchronicity. You must TRUST!
