Understanding Synchronicity


Has it ever occurred to you that you have been thinking about something recently and suddenly it came true? Have you been seeing repetition of specific numbers and patterns like 111, 333, 911, 777, etc. It happens to most of us at some point in our life, yet we cannot up come up with a possible explanation for why and how it happens.

This phenomenon is called synchronicity.

Sometimes when we are searching for some answers in our life, we are driven into apparently normal and random events that leave us with the answers we have been looking for.

There are no scientific explanations for synchronicity, but if we contemplate these repetitive patterns and sequences, we realize that they appear for a purpose. Synchronicity happens to make us question our understanding and perception of the universe. It invites us to a realm where we can feel a deep connection to the outside world that apparently seems unaffected by our being. Coincidences are not coincidences at all. Instead, they are the signs that the universe wants us to stop for a moment, take a break from our worldly chores and comprehend the universal harmony and unity.

As Albert Einstein once put it, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” God works in mysterious ways, and sometimes He opens up His designs to us if we are conscious enough to detect them.

The frequency of synchronized events depends upon our consciousness level. The more conscious we are of our being and the nature of everything, the more synchronized and we are with the universal flow. We can observe these indications and patterns when we are in tune with our true self and nature.

If we look closely at our daily endeavors and encounters, we realize that every choice, action, delay and disappointment possesses a stream of consequential circumstances that map out our future. Everything happens for a reason. Not just ourselves, but the whole universe sets itself in motion for us in our daily endeavors. Every event that has happened in your life has meticulously led you to this very moment in which you are reading this. The events of your future are directly linked to your choices of present. At any given moment, we are sitting with infinite possibilities in our hands.

Synchronicity suggests that we should appreciate the significance of the present moment.

If we look at the fundamental level of our existence, we are not physical beings at all. Instead, we are made up of atoms, electrons and quarks, intertwined together at the quantum level by energy. Even building blocks of matter like electrons cannot be termed as particles, because they have been observed to exhibit wave-like properties. We can conclude that the essence of our existence is pure energy.

The same thing holds true for the rest of the universe. We all share the same energy. To grasp this concept of universal unity in the physical sense, we can say that we all are stardust that was once together in a single massive black dot before the Big Bang occurred. And since our thoughts, emotions and intensions are pure energy, they hold the power of getting manifested in the physical realm.

This perception of the universe drives us to the inception of a paradigm shift and makes us think of the universe as an extension of our being and not something outside our self. A great polymath, Leonardo da Vinci, once said “Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything.”

The signs of synchronicity go unnoticed most of the time because we are too busy to detect them and ponder upon them. Many of us feel entangled in the worldly affairs and a sense of virtual absence resides in ourselves. This is the call of the universe to see its wonders and contemplate its mysteries.

We, humans, are marvels of nature, and yet we forget the fact that the universe has more to offer than what meets the eye. The signs of a grand design and universal flow reside in everything around us and in our own self. But they are only revealed to those who observe and ponder.

  1. It is adorable and nicely scribbled. As Synchronicity directly relates consciousness so I would like to add one thing more, and that is the “Law of Attraction”. the Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life. The belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and that through the process of “like energy attracting like energy” a person can improve their own health, wealth, and personal relationships.
