Do You Believe in Synchronicity?

What is synchronicity? The term synchronicity (syn = with, chronos = time) was chosen by the psychotherapist Carl Jung to describe the simultaneous occurrence of events (or coincidences) which apparently have no clear cause, but are deeply meaningful.

Some would say that coincidences are random, but if we look carefully into our lives, we realize it is not so. Every word or sounds we hear and people we meet are merely a simple coincidence. They appear in our lives when we need them most as answers to our inner doubts or questions.

Moreover, synchronicities can be guides when we do not know what to choose or what to change in our lives. It is like someone from above hears our silent prayers and talks to us through other people, images or events. As a matter of fact, Einstein described coincidences as being “God’s way of remaining unknown.”

Synchronicity connects the material world to the spiritual world through symbols that are not always understood and which arise from the collective unconscious. For example, if we’d go buy something and we encounter a neighbor we dislike, that is not a pure chance! Our spiritual guide may have wanted to tell us that our needs are not different from his own and that we should not consider ourselves better than he is.

Have you ever experienced a coincidence so incredible that it left you stunned? According to the laws of physics, energy and matter cannot be created or destroyed. According to physics when your mind observes something, you change that something. Its called “The Observer Effect“. You make the future happen. (source)

1) Your thoughts are energy.

2) Therefore your thoughts can never be destroyed.

3) Your thoughts are immortal.

4) Your consciousness creates space, time and matter.

What you see is only accurate and complete for you. It’s your interpretation. Your interpretation is based on your “internal reality”, your thoughts. Thoughts shape the invisible energy around you. The cause of your world is your thoughts. Your mind is holographic, each part of it has knowledge of the whole.

In the same way that each cell of your body has information about your whole body, your mind has information about the whole universe. Scientists can clone (duplicate) an organism using a single cell. All the information of the whole is in a single cell. We all began as a single cell. In each cell all the information of life is present. (source)

It may not be the best example of synchronicity, but these images of the Smoky Mountains made me think a bit. I'd been considering a fall photography trip here for some time and I'm glad I went when I did. A short time after returning, the park was all over the news being destroyed by wildfires. I'm not sure if there's a connection, but synchronicity only happens when you are open to it.
