Have you ever experienced those moments where everything worked out just the way that it was supposed to? Maybe you have a favorite number that keeps on showing up for you. Or maybe it’s even happened to you that you were thinking of a song and the next moment it starts playing on the radio.
Many of you might have noticed these strange coincidences that happen to you especially if you’re starting to explore the law of attraction. If you’re looking at how to start manifesting things in your life or changing your life you will benefit from this post!
Today I want to take a little bit of a deeper look at the meaning behind synchronicities and how they, if you can learn to use them, can help you elevate to the next level in your life.
When we first became aware of synchronicities and start paying attention to them, it’s a lot of fun to conjure things up! It can even make you feel a little bit like a magician, but I’m really more interested in how we can gain from these synchronicities.
These are signs that show up, and when we start acting and following our intuition on these signs it can really lead us to transform ourselves. We can begin to create better things in our life.
The truth is, nobody really knows what synchronicities are why they show up for us!
The term synchronicity was coined by the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung who said they were meaningful coincidences. Think of it as these things that you could possibly think are coincidences having a deeper meaning to them.
There are many theories as to what synchronicity actually is.
On the one side, it is explained as Confirmation Bias. Confirmation Bias means when you focus on something, or because you’re thinking of something your brain looks for proof everywhere to show you that you are correct.
On the other hand, you get more of a spiritual outlook which says synchronicities are little gifts or messages from God and the universe and even our guides.
The purpose behind signs and synchronicities
I believe synchronicities really serve the purpose of helping us to remove the veil of separation, this illusion of separateness that we have.
When you start looking at the synchronicities in your life and you start paying attention to that, the underlying message in there is holistic thinking and a wholehearted approach to life.
So we can use these synchronicities to guide us. To give us insight and to help us with making decisions.
Types of synchronicities
The synchronicities that show up for you could be big ones or small ones. For example, seeing the same numbers such as 11:11 or 222 or 444.
You might have a certain number that always appears in your life. The number 7 is a number that I have almost everywhere in my life.
There is a seven in my birthday, a seven in my husband’s birthday, and a seven in both my children’s birthdays. I was born in the seventh month and even the town that I live in has a seven in the zip code!
I have the number seven show up in all kinds of random places and every time that I see this I see it as a little wink from the universe.
Bigger synchronicities could be meeting the right person at the right time.
When I was looking at life coaching schools, I narrowed it down to two schools, both ICF accredited. I was unsure about which one would be better for me.
At this time I was busy with my EFT Practitioners training and I just happened to meet a woman at this training who was a graduate from the Consciousness Coaching Academy. This was one of the schools on my list!
I now had the perfect opportunity to find out exactly what to expect and it helped me with my decision! By the end of that year, I began my life coaching training at the Consciousness Coaching Academy.
I bet, if you look back on your life you’ll find many examples of synchronicities, and chance encounters that helped steer your life in a certain direction.
Managing and mastering synchronicities
So, what do we do with these signs then?
A good way to look at is to say that when you start experiencing these synchronicities it means that you’re busy aligning with your future.
You’re changing your energetic signature so you start to attract these events, these people, and these coincidences into your life.
Using the synchronicities that show up for you and training yourself to start creating and shifting your energetic signature so that you start attracting these into your life it’s like a muscle that becomes stronger with practice.
Here are some things that you can do to start benefiting from synchronicities
You cannot see synchronicities or even create them when you’re living in your head all the time. You need to be grounded and lodged in your physical body.
We are not just spiritual beings. We are spiritual beings in a physical body so we need both to have a balance.
When you want to start using these synchronicities you have to be here, in your body, because they’re happening in the present moment.
Take your attention out of the past, take your attention out of the future, and be here now.
Make a note of them
Once you start noticing these synchronicities, it’s a good idea to write them down.
It’s easy for us to dismiss them as coincidence, because that is what we’ve been taught.
These signs can sometimes be very subtle, so you want to start fine-tuning your ability to pick up on them.
If you’re really not going to pay attention the Universe might hit you with a rock against the head (figuratively speaking) to get your attention, but usually, the signs are very soft and subtle.
Writing them down gives you proof to show you that you also have synchronicities that show up for you, and that you are connected to a bigger part of the whole.
Tune into your intuition
Once you start tuning in your inner guidance and you switch on your inner wisdom you can really benefit from this in different areas of your life.
I recently noticed something in my business that I was not too happy about. I needed to make a decision about this, and I was unsure about what to do.
The very next day, I read a post in a facebook group that I belong to, about a similar topic.
By tapping into my intuition, I was able to gain insight into my own situation and had a clear direction that I could take going forward.
When you interpret the synchronicities it is so important that you do that based on what’s going on in your own inner world.
Let go of attachment
This is actually to let go of the expectation of how it should be.
What often happens to us, is that we have an idea of something that we want to create for ourselves or something that we want in our lives and we expect it to look a certain way.
Now, it might present itself, but because we are not open to it looking any other way or being anything other than what we expect, we miss it.
We assume that our manifestation is not working or that we don’t have any synchronistic events in our lives because it doesn’t look the way that we want it to be.
So, you don’t stop expecting or wanting, but you are not fixated in your mind as to what it should look like when you finally get it.
Messages from the Universe
We live in an interconnected universe and synchronicities are one of the ways in which the universe communicates with us
When we start acting on them or following up on the meaning that they have for us we can start living a fuller life.
