Have you ever thought of a person that you haven’t spoken to in a long time only to get a call, email or text from them? Perhaps a song pops into your mind and moments later you turn on the radio to hear that same tune. We all have stories of similar happenings. Coincidence?
Every day we make conscious decisions that affect our lives but could it be that our lives are dictated by fate, and destiny or do we have synchronicity with the universe that can affect our choices?
Experience first hand the unknown forces that connect us. Amore’s performance will give clear evidence that we are all connected by the synchronicity of the universe.Click here for more details...
