Synchronicity: The Unfolding Present

Map in hand

"Incidences can be as simple as the sensation of Déjà vu or a very stunning, intuitive moment where there is a feeling of being at the right place at the right time."

 

 

Many people all across the globe, report experiencing “strange coincidences” that  somehow cause a shift in awareness and spiritual awakening. Coincidences, that sometimes trigger phenomena such as euphoria, epiphany, satori (seeing into one’s true nature) and a plethora of psychic abilities. Although, not in every case do these “coincidences” yield such peak experiences. Incidences can be as simple as the sensation of Déjà vu or a very stunning, intuitive moment where there is a feeling of being at the right place at the right time. Regardless of the sensation experienced, most people can agree that the experience is exhilarating and life-affirming.

 

 

Carl Jung, a psychologist of prominent status in his time, first coined the term synchronicity. Jung explained synchronicity as, "A meaningful coincidence of physical and psychological phenomena that are acausal connected.” 

Synchronicity is sometimes prompted by recognizing time patterns. For instance, many people report seeing 12:34 or 11:11 tied into their early experiences of synchronicity. Now, to notice a number sequence or time pattern such as 11:11, may seem to have minuscule significance in the grand scheme of things. However, if the only time someone checks the clock during the day and it reads 11:11, this may change their thinking as well as their experience. On the other hand, synchronicity may have nothing to do with numbers at all. It may begin with a word or phrase that seems to keep making it's way into the subject's awareness. It may be a pattern that perpetuates itself the more conscious we become.

Compass

 "Synchronicity is like a compass to help us navigate and guide us along."

 

 

Synchronicity is like a compass, to help us navigate and to guide us along. This helps us to become more in tune with our environment and aligns us with our gut-instincts and intuition. Intuition can be likened to an internal GPS. With the more often we use it, the more clear and precise the GPS connection becomes. It allows us to see the signs, signals and guideposts in our journey through life. These guideposts tend to stun mental activity and halt our movements like a stop sign, drawing our attention to the present moment. Then at a particular juncture, one might notice a freshly paved road to travel down or an off-beaten path that was always there but never previously noticed. 

I have heard it said, that the present moment is a gift. Synchronicity would then be the gift that keeps on giving. Synchronicity gives and delivers us to the moment. Like an unfolding present that seems to never end...
