“Wisdom from My Twenty Year Old Self”

If you had the opportunity to speak to your future or past self what would you say? Would you offer insider trading or tidbits on relationships, which ones to avoid, others to work on more diligently? What would be your area of focus? You could say I had such an event this week. I had an incredible moment of synchronicity, (I love auto correct (-sometimes- Ha!) it said “secret necessities,” for synchronicities. I’m going to have to keep that one. It’ll be my next blog – Isn’t that wonderful?) that in someways was almost surreal.


Wednesday evening I was in my garage going through boxes. I’m still in the process of unpacking and moving into my  home. This particular box I had ignored. I opened it up and realized it was from college. I shook my head and thought to myself, “I can’t believe I’m still packing this stuff around?? I must be crazy!” I skimmed through the top layers and reached in and pulled out a seven subject ringed binder.  It had a list of the classes for that term at the front. One of my favorite classes in college happened to be in this binder, Modern Art. I skipped to that section. My writing was clear, artistic and easily readable. I had written copious notes because I loved the topic. I casually flipped a page and it said Monday, January 16. Several pages further, Wednesday, January 18, 1978, the day I was actually reading in the present. I was reading this on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.  It wasn’t January 18 on a Saturday or Friday it was the exact same day of the week: Wednesday. I was absolutely stunned and amazed. I had not been through this box since college and here I am reading information on the exact day. What compelled me at that moment, that day to decide to finally discover what was hidden beneath the lid? A psychic nudge perhaps?Thirtynine years later and here I am reading what my twenty year old self had written. I laughed as I could feel myself writing some of the funny things I’d scribbled throughout. I’m still that girl. I would call that incredible magic, synchronicity, and stepping into the incredible cosmic time loop.


I instantly brought it inside to scour the rest of my notes to see if there were any hidden messages my younger self was telling my future self. The fascinating thing was the topic was France in the mid-1800s and how the political influences and challenges between the left and the right, the Republicans and essentially the socialists were impacting art on all levels. I thought to myself, well, nothing much has changed, right? We are still dealing with incredible dualities globally today that impact art, music, drama, writing and all forms of artistic expression.

*In absorbing the energy from the notebook, I believe my twenty year old self in hearing her voice in my mind, was sharing to laugh more, be spontaneous, essentially to flirt daily with life. Dive into the subjects you love, learn as much as you can. Absorb the richness of life around you in the here and now. She was very much in the present.

And what if this was about a wisdom exchange between us both, past to present, present to past? What would I share with her that would make her life better from my experience, knowledge and wisdom? In reality she hasn’t the years yet to share deep knowledge. I’ve now decades of life and sadness and joy ~wisdom~ to impart.

*The first thing I would share with her is to understand loyalty is a wonderful attribute however if it’s detrimental to you, your health and your emotional well-being then it’s okay to cut ties and chords earlier. You don’t have to hang on to the bitter end. The universe will still love and support your decisions.  As the old saying goes, oxygen on first.

*Next I would suggest, don’t postpone your life for a man. They are wonderful souls and beings, you can’t live without them and they enhance your life, however don’t hold yourself back due to relationships. Go live large! Again as as the adage goes, “To thine own self be true.”

*Thirdly, don’t let fear bridle you. You have what it takes to reach the stars, just do it, go for it. The only one that hurts by suppressing your inner nature, ~thinking of what others might feel or think~  is you.  You believe in everyone else’s talents and gifts, do the same for yourself.

*And lastly there would be a handful of guys I would definitely tell her to avoid like the plague!

Believing as I do, like Einstein, that all time is simultaneous, and that all time frames, dimensions and realities can influence the others, I have sent these suggestions, encouragements and invitations to my 20-year-old soon to be 21-year-old self. I believe in helping her reshape her future, I become better today at who I am. I too am taking her advice into my heart. I’m feeling the truth of her awareness.

I invite you all to share your wisdom, your knowledge, your experiences with some aspect of yourself to encourage that part you to be the best you can be so in today’s version You Are!
