Do you know that paying attention to and tapping into the power of synchronicity is a way to hone in on your partnership with the Universe and create your destiny?
I know it appears I’m repeating myself as I have written about this many times in the past because it’s so important to underline especially these days. With all the turmoil in the world, it’s easy to only believe what appears to be true in that crazy environment where the media reports only the drama and very little of the amazing and good. We are in a time of great change and if we rely on only what we see and are exposed to we will only be responding to a sliver of the whole story. It’s easy to get stuck in the challenges. Yet there is a guiding principle that engages us through meaningful coincidences that Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called synchronicity.
No matter the temporary conditions, your intentions and energy are reflected through this invisible guidance. It’s kind of like the universe working anonymously on your behalf.
We’ve all had those uncanny coincidences at times. You think of someone for the first time in years and then run into her hours later. You hear people say the same seemingly random phrase three times in one day, and that phrase directly relates to a problem you’ve been struggling with. While in the grocery store you run into the guy you dated several years ago while you both lived on the other side of the country. A friend gives you the same book that your coworker recommended to you the day before. While at first it’s easy to shrug off such mysterious events as eerie coincidences, they’re far more powerful than many of us realize. These synchronicities are meaningful coincidences that your soul attracts into your life to help you grow and evolve.
Synchronicities are confirmation of your limitless connection with Spirit/ Source/ Universe (whatever name you feel comfortable with) and the world around you. Imagine each of us has a unique living map of fate and destiny. You have your own unique path and, just like a road map, your path crosses with other paths. The moment of intersection is where coincidence becomes meaningful, and synchronicities are the signs that help guide you to your ultimate destiny. When you pay attention and intuitively take advantage of synchronistic events, life becomes easier and more purposeful.
I share many examples of synchronicities in all my books and blogs but here’s an example of one that was memorable I experienced. During one week a few years ago, I did readings with three different clients who all had children with the same kind of outer spectrum autism. As you can probably imagine, each client was very frustrated with his/her child’s diagnosis. I’m not very familiar with autism and finished each reading wishing I could offer each of them more guidance about their child. Later in the week, I heard from a popular book editor I’d emailed over a year prior to see if she had space to work with me. She apologized for not getting back to me and said she now had time to take on another client. Just the day before I received her email, I’d decided it was time to hire a new editor and received a message from Spirit to pay attention. Here is where it gets really juicy! In addition to the synchronicity of hearing from her just as I decided to hire a new editor, during our first conversation she mentioned that she had written an award-winning book about sensory integration disorder, which was just what all three of my clients’ children had been struggling with. Because of that synchronicity, I was able to contact my clients and give them more guidance and solutions. Isn’t that amazing? Here is something to do this week to pay attention to this phenomenon.
Synchronicities are happening all the time. You just have to open your eyes and trust. As you notice more synchronicities, more and more will happen in your life.
So, this week, I’d like you to start recording synchronicities in a journal. Take note of even small coincidences such as thinking about having a peanut butter sandwich only to discover your coworker eating one an hour later.
And, meditate! Meditation helps you connect with your intuition and, in turn, helps you tap into the All That Is, where synchronicities abound.
What synchronicities have helped guide you on your path?
