Day 10

Sometimes when I meet a stranger, there is an automatic “click.”  With another stranger, the click doesn’t occur. What’s that about?  What is the purpose behind “the click”?  Why do these immediate connections occur?

Tonight I attended a “later than usual for me” yoga class.  The instructor Daniel is one of my favorites.  I “clicked” with him from the first moment I met him on Facebook.  Everything about him resonates with me.  His photographs…his quotes…his status updates.  He is a loving, compassionate person and is incredibly free in how he chooses to express himself.

I’ve done a lot of flying over the last few years and my travel is on the increase. Within seconds of arriving at my seat, I can determine whether there is a “click” with the person next to me or not.  Not to sound too whoo whoo, but there is a surge of energy that is positive.  On the other hand, I have experienced quite the opposite with people, when the energy surge was more of a downer…and even at times provoked a kind of uncertainty or fear within me.

David Hawkins, author of “Power Versus Force” suggests that when we transcend through various levels of consciousness the vibration of our energy changes. There is an immense amount of research (Eastern healing methods are based on much of this research) which indicates that we are energy and because we are energy we vibrate.  Hawkins suggests that when we experience this “click” it is because we are in sync with the other individual and the wavelength of energy they are emitting.  We are living within similar planes of consciousness/evolving spirit.

Some might call this the law of attraction.  We are like magnets to those ideas, people and concepts that radiate at the same wavelength we emit when we share like-minded concepts and ideas.

The Law of Attraction

And while all of this explains the “click” I find that I am more fascinated with the frequency and ease of their occurrence.  (Coincidence?  Eye contact?  Do I see a theme developing here perhaps?)  I enjoy the sensation of experiencing a click and am, in more cases than not, thrilled when they occur…and often times so immediately!

I have been truly amazed by the growth of the Girls on the Run program.  To begin the program with 13 girls in 1996 was incredibly satisfying…but to directly serve over 90,000 families in this year, is downright extraordinary.  For me in many ways, I am unable to grasp the breadth of the program’s reach.

Rooted deep within each of the core values of our program, rests one very powerful yet simple underlying notion…love is real and there is a mysterious quality to its power.  David Hawkins would certainly describe it as an emission of energy at a certain level which attracts people.  And while this may be a reasonable explanation for it, I enjoy thinking that someTHING/the Divine/God/Higher Self is at work here and actually drives the science behind that connection. Why else would the connection occur or even be important?

Just as the sky is blue for reasons we can certainly explain scientifically, but  are unable to explain why blue is the “chosen color”, I like to reach deeper than the scientific explanation for why “the click” occurs and explore why having clicks are important in the first place and why they bring us joy…why they feel so darn good!

What do you think the “click” is all about and why are they important?  Any interesting stories to share?

  1. I’ve been told that I am guilty of making snap judgements of people, to which I point out, how many times have I been wrong? Very, very few. I can usually walk into a room and know who my allies are. There’s a passage in Anne of Green Gables that I have always loved where Anne talks about people being “of the cloth of Joseph”…basically, cut from the same cloth.

    I am a firm believer of the energy vibrations. Just one of many examples: I went to college with several actors who are quite famous now. While we were in school, they really were no more or less talented, driven, intelligent or even good-looking than anyone else I was in class with, but there was just “something” about them. You just knew it and you didn’t know why. They vibrated celebrity.

    In related news, I read an article about the hidden psychology of first kisses yesterday. Apparently, when we have a first kiss, our subconscious makes snap judgements. In the exchange of saliva, our bodies can tell if the person we are kissing will complement our own chemical make-up to produce healthy off-spring. So the fireworks you feel or don’t feel in a first kiss really are bells…or alarms! Our psyches are pretty cool.

  2. The “click” is really a miracle of nature, a gift from God if you will. Think about how important it is to have a well-tuned “clicker”. Although clicking seems like one of those things we could never have enough of, what if we clicked with everyone and everything? Our clicks would make us clack!

    These clicks have played an important role in my life. We’ve adopted 4 children, 3 of them here in the U.S. If you’re not familiar, the way adoption usually works in our country is that a prospective adoptive family creates a “portfolio” of themselves to share with birthmothers/birthfamilies. These portfolios are like mini-magazines which allow you to tell about your family and your life. There are hundreds of thousands of people trying to adopt in our country. These people are great, hard-working Americans.
    Now picture yourself as a birthmother. You’re carrying a baby that, for whatever reason, you are not going to be able to parent, so you’ve made a courageous and loving decision to give the gifts of life, love and family. Now YOU, the stressed out birthmom and birthfamily, have got to decide who will be the adoptive family… here’s a stack of portfolios to look at.

    How do birthmoms and birthfamilies find THE adoptive family, out of that big stack of portfolios, with their pictures of beautiful homes, awesome vacations, etc?

    I’ve asked our birthfamilies this question. Why us? Out of all these wonderful portfolios… how could you decide? What was it that won us this tremendous honor?

    The answer has never been about our beautiful home. Our wonderful birthfamilies have never once mentioned our awesome vacation shots… they’ve never once mentioned the wonderful prose in our writing.

    They HAVE told us they don’t know why they picked us, they just knew.

    It is simply the “click”. And it works every time.

  3. Hey, Molly B! I loved meeting you today at the NCCA conference… I have a strong sense we’ll meet again :). Peace and love to you as you continue your important work and embrace the loveliness of doing nothing.
