- You’re singing a song in your head, get into your car and turn on the radio and that very same song is playing on the radio.
- Apropos of nothing, someone you haven’t thought of in ages pops into your head and then a few hours later, you get a phone call or email from that person.
- You’ve had three different people all say the same thing to you in one day.
- A coworker recommends a book to you that was loaned to you by another friend the day before.
While it would be easy to shrug these incidences off as mere coincidence, these moments are far more powerful than many of us realize. These are synchronicities: meaningful coincidences that you attract into your life to help your soul grow and evolve.
Synchronicities are events, places, or even people that your soul attracts into your life to help you evolve or place an emphasis on something that is going on in your life and the Universe wants you to pay attention to. A synchronicity is when two or more events which are otherwise unrelated occur together in a meaningful manner, patterns that repeat in time.
Really – what is this? You mean it’s not just weird coincidences?
Carl Jung studied synchronicity extensively. He said, “Synchronicity is the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that cannot be explained by cause and effect and that is meaningful to the observer.”
Deepak Chopra says, “My own life has been touched often by synchronicity, so much so that now I get on an airplane expecting the passenger in the next seat to be surprisingly important to me, either just the voice I need to hear to solve a problem or a missing link in a transaction that needs to come together….”
Simply put: synchronicity is your interconnection with the Universe. It is evidence that we are all connected. If you are thinking of having a burrito for lunch and an hour later a co-worker asks you to join her for Mexican for lunch – that is an a good example of synchronicity and the inter-connectedness of all of us. Your coworker isn’t a mind-reader…really.
The more you trust in spirit and the Universe – and yourself – the more synchronicities will take place in your life. When your inner awareness awareness awakens, your outside world changes, too. Your energetic thoughts and intents and where you place your thoughts is exactly what’s going to show up in your life.
How can I open myself up to more synchronicities?
The Universe is always willing and waiting to show you what is meant for you. Synchronicities gently guide and direct you to what is in alignment with your own personal growth. They act as a little nudge for your soul – a hint for you to watch and wait for something. Sometimes, they are the big proverbial smack in the head you needed – the answer you have been waiting for. Other times, they’re more subtle. Either way, you’ve got to acknowledge the ‘hits’ when you get them. That’ll invite more.
