Psychologist Carl Jung theorized that synchronicities occurred when universal forces were aligned with the experiences of an individual, leading to coincidences that appear to be more than just chance.
These incidents happen because everything is innately connected. He believed that such events can be called forth by an individual's unconscious needs.
Nothing occurs randomly.
Rather, we draw certain people, situations, and blessings to ourselves.
A chance encounter can be positive, negative, or neutral, and feel deeply mysterious or commonplace.
Some coincidences are obvious while others are not apparent until after careful analysis.
Perhaps during an ongoing financial crisis, you always found just enough money to get by.
Or a recurring dream prepares you for an eventual physical event.
Many times, synchronicities represent opportunities to learn about ourselves and the external world. If you feel touched by multiple coincidences or intrigued by a single one, ask yourself why you may be attracting the people involved or the situations. Is it highlighting some aspect of your life or suggesting a course of action?
The soul, believed Jung, whispers to us through synchronicity calling us to attention.
Seeking the meaning behind a synchronistic event can help you know yourself better, kick start your creativity, or show you future pitfalls to avoid. The most profound coincidences often occur at life's crossroads, stopping us in our tracks and leaving us to find the meaning within.
