Being conscious and aware of what is happening in our lives helps us to move towards the desires of our hearts.  Fully being in the present moment allows us to see the synchronicities in our lives and respond to them in a way that keeps us going in the right direction.   

 

Synchronicity is a concept, first introduced by psychologist Carl Jung, which states that events are "meaningful coincidences" if they occur with no underlying connection.  However, they seem to be meaningfully associated.  Thinking about your college roommate, and she calls you a few minutes later, is an example of synchronicity.  We’ve all experienced these types of scenarios, but we rarely realize how important they can be in our lives.

 

By living a conscious lifestyle, we can stitch these moments together to see that the Universe is assisting us in some way.  It gives us these bits of information to show us we’re on the right path or that we need to alter our mindset.  Only when we’re aware and fully present, we can make our own luck, make our dreams a reality, and fulfill our destiny. 

 

Understanding synchronicity and how it affects your life is vital for you to be your authentic self.  It’s one of the ways the Universe communicates with your soul. 

 

Synchronicity reveals the meaningful connection between the subjective and objective world.  ~ Carl Jung

 

Synchronicity is Universal

 

Many philosophers and quantum physicists consider ‘consciousness” as the necessary foundation of all that is.  I love that they attribute synchronicity to the “non-local” mind or what we could call the universal consciousness. 

 

Synchronicity explores the region between significance and time, where chance meets need when external and internal conditions align in meaningful coincidence. It associates the visible and mysterious, the effect of the precise and exact with the universal. In this nonlocal consequence, particular abilities manifest simultaneously in different places. It’s a corresponding outcome that cannot be explained by cause and effect.

 

As you begin to walk towards positive change in your life, the Universe, that Divine energy, will take even more steps towards you.  These are the synchronicities that begin to appear in your life.  New experiences and amazing possibilities will start to open all around you.  These synchronicities will be a source of joy and wonder in your life, but you must become aware of them as they occur. 

 

I do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence when we think we're alone.  ~ Charles de Lint

 

Synchronicity is Intentional

 

Synchronicity isn't irrational or accidental. It’s rooted in taking your intention and creating a result. If you have a problem, you plan to solve it.  So, you review the issue and evaluate potential solutions.  But, most of the time, a simple answer doesn’t exist, and you have to create your own resolution. 

 

Did you see the magic word?  Create – or creativity is the magical key to generate more synchronous moments in your life.  When we are creative, we are in sync and in the flow with the universal power. In other words, we are inspired.  The word inspiration means “in the Spirit.”  We get these inspirational moments of creativity without the cause and effect we expect from a logical mind.  It just hits us, and this synchronicity operates at the deeper level of our awareness.  It doesn’t come from our conscious, rational mind. 

 

It’s not accidental, just like a great novel isn’t an accident.  Trusting your creativity is the first and most reliable way to "make your own luck."  Creativity has become such a stereotypical word that means very little anymore. However, for our purposes, it means that every question we have is ordered in consciousness to have an answer.

 

When you remain connected to the Divine, It will speak to you — in patterns and connections, signs and synchronicities, and all sorts of gifts. When magic rises to the surface of your awareness, and your life, you know you’re blessed.  ~ Phyllis Curott

 

See the Synchronicities in your life

 

This is an enigmatic component from the unconscious that we all can connect. Synchronicity is the ability to create the reality we desire and discover the support that carries us past expected results to a higher level. In spiritual terms, synchronicity is the ultimate ability to connect our need s with an answer from our soul.   To help you harness this creative ability, here are some basic practices and mindset shifts for you to implement so you can have more synchronous moments in your life. 

 

Be mindful and aware of the synchronicities.

Practice awareness and be fully present in each moment.  You can bring yourself into the present moment through prayer, meditation, or breathe work.  There is no limit to what you can change because awareness brings light to every aspect of life. If your consciousness is constricted, everything else will be, too. On the other hand, if you are in a state of expanded mindfulness, everything will expand.

 

The most ancient wisdom traditions say, “Know that one thing by which all else is known.” That one thing is consciousness itself.  The Divine is within all of us. There is no higher power of transformation then awareness.  When you are mindful, then expansion is unlimited, and the possibilities are endless. If you’re unaware of what’s happening around you, then you will never notice any synchronicities.

 

In every moment, the Universe is whispering to you. You're constantly surrounded by signs, coincidences, and synchronicities, all aimed at propelling you in the direction of your destiny.  ~ Denise Linn

 

Be open and receptive to synchronous moments.

 

We need to be open to the possibility that we do not know what is going to be communicated to us. Open up to the possibility that we are always being instructed to if we are willing to listen.  We also need to be open to receiving whatever may come in a non-reactionary way.  Sometimes we make mistakes that need to be corrected so we can learn from them and grow. 

 

Be open-minded to what is trying to be communicated.  We need to examine what we believe about ourselves and our mindsets.  Be open-minded towards accepting the synchronicity that shows itself. This will increase your ability to recognize the experience for what it is.

 

Don’t dismiss the synchronicity of what is happening right now, finding its way to your life at just this moment. There are no coincidences in the universe, only convergences of Will, Intent, and Experience. ~ Neale Donald Walsch

 

Be humble. 

 

Sometimes what your ego desires or thinks is best for you isn’t.  Learn to recognize the disguises that the ego uses to keep you small. Your imperfections are part of your uniqueness.  To be authentically you, means you have to know your faults.  You shouldn’t fear your vulnerabilities, as they have no power, but be humbled if your limitations are exposed.  You are the perfect and only rendition of you that exists, despite your flaws.  By doing so, you won’t be trying to control your life circumstances, but you will allow inspiration to influence you in the form of synchronicities.

 

Also, be humble when you recognize synchronistic events that are happening.  They aren’t just occurring for you but everyone else as well.  Help other people see these magical moments in their own lives so that they, too, can learn to create more of them.

 

The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it Intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you, and you don't know how or why.  ~ Albert Einstein

Trust your instincts concerning synchronicities.  

Trust that synchronicity will show up in your life, and when it does, have faith in your awareness, and follow the path presented to you. When you learn to trust your authentic self, you also learn to trust your soul’s inner guidance.  Listen to what your gut is telling you.  Your unconscious mind is infinite and extremely wise. Our intuitions, that gut feeling, are the part of our authentic self that is still connected to the Divine, which is trying to speak to us.  When we choose to listen, we tend to have a better life experience as we are following our internal guide.

However, if we disregard the feeling, we are ignoring our true selves and allowing outside influences to navigate our lives. Our awareness of these external influences is a vital component in acknowledging who’s in control of our lives.  We need to be empowered to trust that only we, though the Divine guidance, know what’s in our own best interest.  We can ask for opinions and direction, but it’s ultimately our choice, our decision to make. Opportunities are being opened for us all the time, and when we follow our instincts, we can be aware of them. 

We do not create our destiny; we participate in its unfolding. Synchronicity works as a catalyst toward the working out of that destiny. ~ David Richo

Find and live your passion.

Living your passion may seem daunting, but it’s simplistic as doing something you love.  It’s not about changing your life in one day; it’s about adding more joy to each day that you live.  The more passion a person has, the more inclined they are to work hard on self-improvement, thus increasing an individual's chances of success. 

By having a growth mindset, we open up to countless possibilities that can arise.  Furthermore, we notice these opportunities in a different light.  The light of personal development and that never-ending potential allows us to shine in new and inconceivable ways as we apply our new knowledge.  Passion will enable us to expand our perspectives. 

Our Passion makes the impossible possible. Our brains are wired in such a way that when our souls are ignited, we no longer flinch when we come upon obstacles that appear in our way. That’s what makes passionate people so successful. We can imagine the possibilities and the opportunities for progress, whereas dispassionate people only see the roadblocks and the reasons why the dream or the goal cannot be reached.  Passion reinforces our determination to overcome obstacles we encounter, and we become more resilient in life.

When you stop existing and you start truly living, each moment of the day comes alive with the wonder and synchronicity. ~ Steve Maraboli

Let go of the outcome so synchronicities can occur.  

Set your goals and intentions, and then learn to let go of your attachment to the result. We become attached to things and individuals.  People grow attached to the possessions in their lives. Things like their profession, their position, their lifestyle, et cetera. To chase after a dream would mean giving up some, if not all, of these things that have become a part of their lives. Because of this fear of loss, some people choose to put their dreams on hold permanently.  This limiting means that we need to get our egos out of the driver’s seat of our lives

Most of the time, what the Universe has in mind for us is far better than we could have imagined.  We have limited mindsets, but the Universe is infinite and has unlimited resources.  So, we need to let go of the obsessive and controlling nature and trust that we are in step with the universal flow for our lives. 

When you live your life with an appreciation of coincidences and their meanings, you connect with the underlying field of infinite possibilities. ~ Deepak Chopra

Journal your intentions. 

Writing down our dreams helps us to focus our purpose and our ability to receive synchronous outcomes we desire.  It’s the act of writing which can force you to organize your thoughts and make concrete the emotional turbulence swirling around in your head. 

Writing accesses the left brain, the analytical side.  While this part of the brain is busy, your right brain is free to do what it does best; create, discern, and feel. Therefore, journaling removes mental blocks and allows us to use all of our brains to understand better ourselves and the world we live in.

This is also a great way to let go of our attachment to the outcome.  We can delve into why we aren’t trusting or why we want things in a certain way.  Journaling is a safe place to review our mindsets and an easy way to alter them into more productive and positive ways.

With synchronicity, all the resources we need are made available for us at the precise moment that is appropriate. The people who come into our lives are the ones we need at that moment in time. Everything is perfect. We only need to recognize this to tune into the flow. Everything happens for a reason, and every experience is a learning experience.  ~ Alex Chua

 

Moving Forward

By becoming conscious and aware of how the Universe is trying to help your dreams become your reality, we can begin to recognize the synchronous moments in our lives.  As we distinguish them, we learn to evaluate what steps we are to take to move forward towards our goals. 

 

Synchronicity is choreographed by a great, pervasive intelligence that lies at the heart of nature, and is manifest in each of us through intuitive knowledge.  ~ Deepak Chopra
