My Message From a Starbucks Fly


If you are familiar with me and my work, you know I believe we are given constant signs and synchronicities from the Universe to help us on our path — whether navigating us where to go next, assuring us we are on the right path or waking us up to something we might not have noticed or realized.

Well, my latest sign came courtesy of a fly at Starbucks!

I was sitting in a local Starbucks with the intent of working for a few hours without any distractions, and as soon as I sat down, I noticed a fly buzzing around the chair.

Now, this Starbucks was pretty big, and I was all the way in the back of the store, sitting in a nice brown leather chair with a table right next to hold my unsweetened, iced passion tea. I assumed since the place was pretty spacious the fly would eventually be on its way to another section (and another person).

I was wrong.

This fly was apparently in love with me because he never left my side. He crawled on the table next to me (I think he was even staring at me at one point) and he buzzed about in front of me, behind me and around me. He never truly got in my way, but he was there and kept grabbing my attention.

At one point I even texted my boyfriend: “I’m being harassed by a fly. Just thought I would share…”

Over two hours passed and this fly was still hanging out with me. Then it hit me! This fly has an entire Starbucks to roam about and he is sticking with me. There must be a reason.

I looked up the metaphysical meaning of a fly, and this is what I found:

“Your persistence in reaching your goals will bare fruit sooner than later. Even if that means annoying others or being selfish for a while — you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.”

I got the chills because here I was at Starbucks trying to minimize distraction so I could get work done and move toward my goals. Not only that, but I spent the last few weeks writing down my goals, breaking them down into projects and prioritizing daily tasks to get them all done (thank you J.B. Glossinger and your “Sacred Six Method”}. I have also been feeling guilty because I have work to do and can’t take off every time loved ones have off from work.

This fly reinforced exactly what I need to hear.

And the best part . . . as soon as I looked up the meaning online and got the message, after hanging with me for hours, the fly immediately flew away and never came back.

Message received little fly, and thank you for your help.

I wanted to share this story to show you an example of how the universe is always communicating with us, and sometimes even the things we find annoying or negative hold messages for us.

Keep your eyes open, my friends, and don’t discount anything — even a little fly.
