Synchronicity – Understanding The Dynamic and Dimension of this Universal Language

Written by on September 19, 2014 in Conscious Evolution, Conscious Living with 1 Comment

All woo woo notions aside – synchronicity is serious stuff!

The concept of synchronicity has eluded and yet intrigued human beings for millennia.  Though it’s underlying process is anything but random, it can appear as arbitrary and disconnected to any relevance of thought or experience we may be having at the time.  Here is an illustration worth noting.

jamesgandolfiniOn Monday, June 17, 2013, I’d been casually perusing a news website, just to see what was making headlines in the mainstream. I’d been surfing rather quickly – looking for a story that might peak my interest.  As I quickly clicked through to different articles, I recall briefly glimpsing the headline, “Sopranos’ James Gandolfini Dead at….”  I was moving so fast, by the time my brain registered this unexpected headline, I was off to the next article.  When I attempted to go back, wondering, “Did I just see what I think I saw?” the headline about Gandolfini was not of his death but of some event he had reportedly attended.  Confused by the clear mis-statement of what I thought I saw, I eventually let it go. Two days, later, on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, the actual breaking news came in – “James Gandolfini Dead…Sopranos Star Dies at 51.

Although this could be viewed as a premonition, synchronicity like intuition all have common ties.

Once thought of as an emotional and subjective phenomenon, synchronicity has become a ubiquitous affair.  Just ask anyone who constantly sees 11:11 on the clock!

Out of the millions of people (perhaps billions) who have been experiencing the 11:11 phenomenon for some time, few if any have definitive explanations.  But what is worth noting here is that the Universe speaks a language.  Though initially alien to our own, it is still familiar to us on some level.  And here’s the real breaking news – We are all connected to it! Synchronicity is one medium by which it speaks.

The mass witnessing of 11:11, although a phenomenon to be sure, is just the tip of the iceberg.  In fact it’s significance, and the multitude of meanings it may carry to each individual is perhaps less important than the notion that synchronicity, in all of its expressions is the language of the Universe that we must all eventually learn – and it may be beckoning us to do just that if we truly want to evolve.

I like many, have been witness to these anomalies of reality before – what Carl Jung referred to as “a meaningful coincidence of outer and inner events that are not causally related.”

Synchronicity, I’ve always maintained is a visceral though omnipresent mechanism by which to connect the individual with the Universal.  We are all tethered to it, whether we consciously acknowledge it or not.  Synchronicity will often emerge unannounced and uninvited.

Glimpsing a “pre-headline” about Gandolfini may be a case-in-point. A synchronous event can often be arbitrary in nature.  And this can be viewed as a conundrum.  Many people who experience synchronicities, or premonitions or intuitions will feel a sense of ambiguity, especially if the insight and its consequences are out of the control of the experiencer.  While this may be so, synchronicities aren’t always there to intervene a process but to simply remind us that we are connected to the information. – ALL information – which exist on a quantum level outside of time and space!

Once we understand our absolute connection to this field, we can then contemplate the possibility of utilizing synchronicity, coupled with discernment to make choices that may even have drastic life altering implications.  Here’s one example…

In Ann Bolinger-McQuade’s book, Everyday Oracles, she tells of the story of a physician who while driving on his way to the hospital to perform a scheduled surgery, noticed a dead rabbit on the road with birds feeding on its remains.  The physician felt an inner prompting that there was some significance to his noticing this scene.  Just prior to bringing the male patient in for the surgery, the physician watched as the man’s wife kissed her husband and said, “See you later bunny.”  Immediately he canceled the surgery, acting on the inner prompting which surfaced in the form of a physical sign on the side of the road.  During which time the surgery was to be performed, the male patient suffered a heart attack.  Had he been in surgery at the time he would not have survived.

This physician made a decision to trust his intuition, initially being prompted by a synchronicity that he chose not to ignore and in the process spared the life of his patient.

Although not all synchronicities are as dramatic as this illustration, they are all significant.  Whether it’s a phone call from a friend with whom you’d just been thinking of, or a fortuitous flash on your computer screen about an impending death two days before it actually happens, synchronicities are perhaps our best clue that all consciousness is connected to one grand field of reality.  A reality whose language is truly Universal!
