Have you ever had a synchronicity experience (you know, like a very bizarre coincidence) and wondered if it was a message trying to tell you something?

Like maybe which path to take with your career or relationship?

If you’ve been looking for a new perspective and how it can relate to making a decision, this video is for you!

I believe these synchronicity experiences are significant and worth investigating, but it *can* be dangerous to interpret them the wrong way.

In this video I share with you the *safest* place to start and what all synchronicity experiences have in common (it may not be what you think!)

 

 

Leave a comment below and share your synchronicity experience ( I really, really love to hear these!)

Let me know if this perspective changes how you view your experience :)

By the way, the book I mention: Synchronicity: The Art of Coincidence, Choice, and Unlocking Your Mind by Dr. Kirby Surprise is here if you want to check it out.

When I was younger I used to feel like a victim a lot of the time. No matter how many things were going well in my life, I could tell a story I felt bad about. I didn’t know at the time that I was indulging in a victim story. Even when my situation was comparatively easier than that of many people around me, I found a way to focus on the victim story and not take responsibility for my own choices.

I think everyone has done this at some point without realizing it. It doesn’t necessarily have to be something one does consistently. It can be a habit that creeps up, usually in times of stress and change. After all, periods of scary, risky change are the perfect time to dwell on old, familiar stories that relieve us of responsibility.

After writing How to Create Synchronicity, I feel inspired to create an ongoing dialogue about synchronicity as it plays out in my life, starting with this entry. I hope that I will inspire you to welcome and look for it in your life also. Such experiences make everything so much more rich and interesting and are a phenomenon not discussed often enough!

I had the idea after reading The Seven Secrets of Synchronicity which featured one story about a guy who chronicles his synchronicity experiences on a blog that I really love called Teapots Happen.

He went all the way back into childhood and made a post for each synchronicity he could remember experiencing. Well, that may be a project for the future, but I thought maybe I would just start with Now.

After all, where is the beginning really?

So many of the synchronicities I’ve experienced are linked to things that happened before, and I really could just keep going further and further back. Now seems as good a time to start as any. Of course, one single moment does lose a bit of its significance when not viewed within the whole picture. I’ve read stories of synchronicities where the ultimate punch line only comes years and years later.

Like the one about the woman who dreams the hospital she works in has been bombed. She thinks it has some sort of emotional significance, like maybe a part of her is suffering and being destroyed by her working there. But then the hospital really does get bombed years later and looks exactly the way she pictured it!

Or the one about the woman who loses the film containing a picture of herself with her son right before World War II. She is never able to get the picture developed, but after the war when film is being recycled, she notices that the picture she had taken so long ago is superimposed over a more recent picture she has developed. Her own film and picture had found its way back to her after all that time!

I believe these stories are so important because they may be clues to what is going on in our reality, whether it’s past, present, or future. But even if they don’t mean anything in particular (because some are just silly, even though very strange), they at least jolt us out of believing that we understand everything about life when it feels mundane and boring. They remind us that we live in a mysterious, playful reality, where the unexpected can happen at any moment, whether we understand the meaning or not.

So where to start with Now?

Two days ago, I met a friend for tea. We’ll call him R. While I was waiting for him in the cafe, there was nothing but music from the 40s playing, like Ella Fitzgerald stuff. As soon as he sat down *my song* came on. This is the song I talk about in the post How to Create Synchronicity. Both of us looked up in shock.  He actually understood the significance, because I had explained it to him two weeks ago–the last time it came on when I was with him!

I have had the most amazing week!

My dear friend Celestine Chua was visiting from Singapore to speak at a Wharton (University of Pennsylvania) Marketing Conference scheduled for the auspicious day of 11/11/11.

After several coaching sessions with Celes during a transformative period in my life, a blogging course, and a meditation challenge on her blog, it was great to finally meet her in person! She’s been a HUGE part of getting my own web site, blog, and coaching practice started. It was a blast to have her stay with me and to show her the best of Philadelphia (only wish we had more time!)

Celes runs a blog where she’s currently doing a FREE journaling challenge. Everyone take a look! :)

This is a question that I get asked a lot and it is a good one! I have been exploring this for a long time, and I would love to share with you what I’ve learned.

I found when I started writing that I have so much to say on this topic, so I’ve decided to break it up into several parts:

Part I: What My Personal Experiences Have Taught Me

Part II: What I’ve Learned From Others

Part III: What the Scientific Research Shows

Part IV: How YOU Can Use This Information for Your Practice

Part I: What My Personal Experiences Have Taught Me

When I first started experimenting with manifesting and visualizations, I wanted very specific things. This is normal–most of us come to this practice because we want specific things rather than general ones. In my case, I wanted a specific relationship I was in to deepen and be full of peace rather than full of drama and uncertainty.

While you can never change another person’s mind or behavior, it is definitely possible to affect others by changing yourself and engaging God/The Universe to shift the energy you’re in and help out. Continue reading »
