Synchronicity – Lifting the Veil Between Worlds
You’re thinking about someone and they suddenly call you. You’re talking about an old film, then turn on the TV and find it happens to be on. You’re thinking of a song, turn on your radio, then find it is playing.
These are just a few quick examples of an eerie, mysteries phenomenon that regularly pokes its way into each of our lives, that some call coincidence, others call “meaningful coincidence”, and a few call “synchronicity”. Most people miss them when they happen, and Don’t be afraid to go alone fail to make the connection as the synchronicity flies over their head. Some spot them, but immediately dismiss them. A few notice, but can’t think beyond the bounds of coincidence. Rarer still are the folks who pay attention and name them, but that’s usually as far as it goes.
What are synchronicities? Why do they come? What are they trying to tell us? These are questions asked by the inquisitive, but answered by the very few. I’m not going to answer these questions, as I don’t think an objective answer exists for any of them. But what I will share is my take on how to harness synchronicity.
How do you use Synchronicity?
First of all you need to employ a perspective change. You need to stop seeing the world as a machine that came together by accident. Doing this is easy: the first step is just to consider why you’re here at all. If the Universe is just a big giant accident, why does it exist at all? If we’re supposed to believe that the entire Universe came out of nothing in a Big Bang, we have to ask why? When you start confounding your mind with the mystery by asking yourself these questions, your perspective will begin to change from the mechanistic-reductionist-materialist paradigm conditioned from birth since the time of Newton, and will open itself up to new concepts and ideas.
So next you need to get tuned in.
How do you tune in to synchronicities?
The answer to this question is very simple: pay attention! When you’re focused on the reality of now, and not on the fantasy of tomorrow or the memory of yesterday, you already start tuning into the world around you. Just make it your intention to notice when something unusual happens. And when you do experience synchronicity – or a coincidence, if you prefer – then look at it. You don’t need to understand it, yet; just look at it and recognise it.
Once you’re tuned in you’ll start noticing synchronicities occurring in your life all around you. You’ll start seeing them everywhere, and if you’re reading this article then you may already be experiencing this.
The next step with synchronicity is to realise that synchronicities are not random and unusual occurences, but that synchronicity actually makes up the very fabric of reality, and that everything is synchronicity. The brief sparks of coincidence are just windows of insight through which one can catch a glimpse of this vast symphony at work.
This Synchronistic Matrix that underlies reality appears to have an agenda, and that appears to be evolution. If you consider the only universal truth is that nothing lasts. The only constant is change. As Terrence McKenna says:
