The dictionary on this computer defines the word synchronicity this way:
"The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection."
The parts of this explanation that tickle me are appear and discernible. They are words that suggest ambiguity. In other words, we think that a simultaneous occurrence of events is probably meaningless but we don't really know for sure.
For me, synchronicity is the proof I need that there is Higher Guidance at work. Take this example:
I am working in a studio with 3 other people. We are listening to a song. I hear a particular lyric and mention that it reminds me of an '80s song. Some others agree. I say that I like the '80s song it triggers memories of some of significant events in my life.
We leave the studio. We decide to go and eat. We deliberate on where to go. Finally we decide. We arrive at the restaurant. We sit down and open our menus. Can you guess which song is playing on the sound system? You better believe it: the 80's fave.
Just think for a minute of all the things that had to happen for us to get to that particular restaurant at that very moment to hear that song. Appear significantly related? No discernible connection? I think not.
How about miraculous timing that can only be orchestrated by a Power beyond my intellectual understanding? A Power Greater than Dictionaries and Our Ability to Interpret Stuff. I think so.
These moments remind me that there is Something Else at work and that I am a part of it. This Something knows me and, in fact, will remind me of its Presence through something as seemingly insignificant as a Phil Collins song.
Inspiring Message of the Day: The Universe is constantly working to help us on our journey. When we experience the phenomenon of synchronicity or coincidence we can begin to trust that we are in the Flow, being guided by the Higher Plan of Existence.
