Pennies from Heaven: A Slice of Life Post





Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. Today, I want to talk about the significance of finding coins, specifically pennies and dimes.

Recently, I went to the mall with my youngest. There was a game for the Xbox 360 he wanted to get and he couldn’t wait one more day to get it. Sigh. So we ventured out on one of the busiest weekends of the year.

I parked my car in the parking lot and stepped out. I happened to look down on the ground and there sitting right by my foot was a dime. I picked it up and put it in my pocket. I didn’t think much about it, just proceeded into the store.

After my son picked out his game, we stood in the long line waiting to check out. Ahead of me in the aisle was a bright shiny penny. I had seen it earlier, before I stepped in line, but I figured someone would pick it up. I was surprised to see it still on the floor. I picked it up and handed it to the cashier. I thought it was odd, all those people milling around and no one picked up that coin. I shrugged it off, after all, it was busy. The chances of finding loose change will increase dramatically when you have more people milling around.

We left the store and headed toward our car. As we travelled across the parking lot, something shiny caught my eye. When I stepped closer, I realized it was a coin, another dime. Now I believe in synchronistic events and I find it strange that I would find three coins in a busy mall out in plain site where anyone passing by could pick them up.

So when I returned home. I did an internet search and I found there is a spiritual connection to finding pennies and dimes.

Some people believe that finding these two types of coins in odd places or frequently is a message from someone who has passed to the other side.

If this is true, what does finding these coins mean? What message are they trying to convey?

Well, according to the above article, pennies signify the number one. Which carries the vibration of new beginnings, new ideas, achievement, success, and progress.

Dimes, on the other hand, signify that you should pay attention to your intuition and trust your instincts as you move forward in life.

Is this true? I don’t know, but I do know that I’ve had a rush of new ideas recently in regards to my writing. 🙂 So I’m going to be paying attention that’s for sure.

How about you? Has anything like this happened to you before? What did you make of it? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Lisa,
    I often wonder about the stories behind the lost coins and where they have been. Did they fall through a hole in a pocket? Did they fall from the chubby fingers of a toddler? Thanks for sharing the links!

    1. You’re welcome. Yes. I’ve wondered that too Fran, but when I found three in such close proximity it got me thinking and I did a little research. I find it very interesting and the fact that other people have experienced this with those same two coins was quite a surprise. I wasn’t expecting to find any information at all. Thanks for stopping by Fran. 🙂

  2. Since my dad passed away this summer, my sister has seen rabbits everywhere. My dad was not rabbit-like in any way, but it is an interesting coincidence. We like to think it is a good sign.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Adrienne, I’m so sorry for your loss. However,I believe the rabbits are a good sign too. When I read the article from the link in my blog. It said that the people who’ve crossed over try to contact us in an “unfrightening” way. Rabbits are very non-threatening. 🙂

  3. Love this post, Lisa! This happens to me a lot. I find more pennies and dimes, than other coins. Once my hubby found a $50 bill in a field! Thanks for sharing the links and hidden reasons for finding money. I too believe in synchronisity, and that the Universe is always whispering to us! All the best in 2016, my friend!

    1. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Sharon. I’m finding out that this happens to a lot of people. Here’s to Synchronistic things happening in 2016! Have a Happy New Year!

  4. This is such a fun read. I never thought about finding money having any significance other than good luck. I often leave change where it can be found hoping that little children will find it because I remember the glee of finding coins.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Haddon. I know what you mean. I was surprised when I looked it up on the internet. Even more surprised when I found so much info on it. I think it’s awesome that you leave coins for young children. Anything that puts a smile on a child’s face is okay by me. 🙂
