65 Coincidences

Here is a weird coincidence having to do with the number 65


This is a recount of situations riddled with coincidence after a significant person briefly came into my life.<br /> I live in a busy city where years can pass without accidentally running into any of my close friends, but I do somehow run into specific people at specific times, repeatedly. I met a man - let's call him K - through a mutual friend (our only mutual friend). I am a freelance designer and work in many different locations all the time, he works part time at an office, at the time I didn't know where. We had an instant and palpable chemistry.

Name and Birthday twins

I hired a young man as my husband's guitar teacher, and thought it was kind of fun that he and my son shared the same first name because it is not that usual - Tristan. One day as we stood in the kitchen talking, I felt compelled to ask him when his birthday was. He said, March 25, 1983. That is the exact date of my son Tristan's birth.

Finding money

One day a friend and I were out for a walk. My friend is a scientist, an engineer, and a no-nonsense kind of woman. She is also the only person I know who goes to Aruba; she loves to windsurf there every chance she gets. As we walked down the street in a small New Hampshire town, I was talking to her about how I always find money, and she was kindly allowing me my little stories about this. As I was telling her, I looked down and said, "Look, here is a coin!" Imagine my surprise when I looked at it and it said ARUBA on it.

King of the Road

A new friend and I were putting together a public storytelling event, and our subject was COINCIDENCE. We decided we wanted to have live music as people were gathering, so I contacted a friend who is a guitarist for that job. One day I got the idea that it would be fun for the guy singing with him to sing the old song by Roger Miller, King of the Road, so I found a You Tube of the song and sent it to the guitarist asking him if he knew it.

My robin story

My 90-year-old father was an atheist. I believe it is very likely our consciousness continues after we die. While my father was dying last year, he and I had discussions about this, and I told him that if he found his consciousness continued after he left us, then I wanted to know. He humored me by saying, "I will be the first robin you see in the spring." I laughed and said that was not good enough, that it had to be obvious - like the robin would have to be wearing little glasses. So, during the last few weeks of his life, robins and my father became the theme.

spiritual journey??

last night I went to the movies to see the movie " there's' a heaven'. I just lost my son 2 months 1/2 ago and in front of me there was a man sitting I never saw his face only he took hi phone out and his password of his phone was exactly mine.. I took that very surprise yet weird.

Independence Day

Paste from Wikipedia , 4th of July. In a remarkable coincidence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, which was the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Although not a signer of the Declaration of Independence, but another Founding Father who became a President, James Monroe, died on July 4, 1831, thus becoming the third President in a row who died on this memorable day.

Time coincidence

For the last year or so almost every day I check my phone and the time is 14.04pm. I look at my phone randomly maybe five times during the day but always just happen to look at this time, It's not a significant time i.e a lunch hour as I am a stay home mum and always doing something different at that time and I don't subconsciously think about it untill it happens. My birthday happens to be 14th April.
