The Pivotal Moments in Your Life

What have been the pivotal moments in your life? What have been the real life changing events? The moments of illumination? The moments when you realized something important that would change the course of events to come?

You know. Like when you played in a concert that was well attended and the crowd loved it. Like when you hiked up a mountain and were simply awestruck standing in snow, looking down on the desert, at eye level with a glider.

Like the time you interviewed for a job and got hired and you felt good from the time of the interview, and you knew you had it. Like when you got into school after having been rejected by other schools.

When you worked at something you loved and the time just went so fast the whole sequence was just one thread weaving into another. Like when you could have died in that car wreck.

Like how you felt when your mother or father died. Or your grandparents. Or someone else close to you. Like when you wrote a story that you really labored over and everyone in your writing class or writers group loved it.

Like a really memorable lover who enlarged your realm of possibilities. Like a really good friend and what happened to end the friendship.

Pivotal moments when you had an out-of-body experience or an energy healing session so powerful that you felt like you were walking on air and were surrounded by light energy for the rest of the day.

A moment when you wanted something and got it almost immediately. A moment when you connected with spirit and instantly knew something you had no other way of knowing.

A moment when you did something that felt perfect. Everything was in place and flowed as smoothly as you imagined it would.

A moment when you just met someone for the first time and you knew that you would be friends for a long time. A time when just being in the outdoors revealed a great secret of life.

What have been the pivotal moments in your life?
