Synchronicity is the coincidental occurrence of events that seem related but are not explained by conventional mechanisms of causality.
Synchronicities can be guides when we do not know what to choose or what to change in our lives. They open our eyes to things, show us opportunities. They give us messages from the Universe. Messages to say that we need to pay attention or that we are on the right path.
Synchronicity has occurred when multiple signs focus our attention on a path.
Examples of synchronicity:
- The same numbers or patterns of numbers keep showing up over and over in your life, numbers such as 1111, 1234, 1212, 444 etc.
- The same animals or images keep showing up over and over in your life.
- You have met someone out of the blue who talked about an event or said something which in fact sounded like answers to what you have been asking yourself recently.
- Things happen for you just when you need them most – perfect timing.
- Help and support appear in your life from people you have never met before.
If you are experiencing synchronicity google can definitely be your friend, but keep in mind there are thousands of people out there all with their own interpretations of what something means. My advice would be to look at a few sources and then decide which is most fitting for you. I believe you will always be guided by your intuition to the right answer.
To share a very personal story linking back to how my journey began… I was seeing 11:11 at every turn so googled the meaning. Tons of information came up, but the one interpretation that clearly spoke to me was that 11:11 meant the Universe had a message for me.
Mmmm, right. Great. But how was I to get this message? Back on google I go …. Meditation. Ok. So, I needed to meditate (something I was not great at just yet) and ask my intuition (which I had buried many many years ago) what the message was. Brilliant, this was going to be trickier than I thought.
Anyhoo, once my children were sound asleep I set about this mediation to ask my intuition what the message was (and yes I did feel as batty as I sound).
So, I calmed my mind, did my breathing (as best I could – bit nervous at this stage). Then I asked “Intuition what is my message?” … All that happened was an image of my eldest son (who was 8 years old at the time) in his school uniform popped into my head. I pushed the image aside and asked again: “Intuition what is my message?” …
Again, the image of my son in his school uniform popped into my head. My immediate thought was ‘grrrr this isn’t working’, so I packed it in and went to bed.
The following morning before the alarm went off I woke completely wide awake, which is unusual for me as I am one of those snooze-button-lovers. And with that my 8-year-old popped up next to my bed. Mmmmm, coincidence? I invited him under the covers and said, “OK Universe I heard you”.
Snuggling down with my precious little boy I began to gently probed and discovered my baby was having problems at school. The Universe had stepped in and said “Kate, open your eyes, your baby needs you”.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is SYNCHRONICITY at its best.
