Pronoia! Your Guardian Angel
Pronoia has been one of my favorite words in my personal "Words to Use Everyday" catalogue for a few years now. For those who are unfamiliar with it, learning of it can be a complete game changer. If you Google the term, you'll find many similar definitions, but most simply put, it is a belief - nay, a deeply innate suspicion - in which you accept that the Divine Universal Consciousness is conspiring to help you. Pronoia in a religious context means Providence or Divine Providence — the wise and benevolent provision for all our needs by God.
In light of all the darkness and negativity being broadcast in the world, check out these amazing instances of pronoia at work on behalf of our world in just 2018 alone:
