Denominated by most people as “coincidences“, synchronicity is the principle that governs that series of circumstances and events that happen to us at the right time, in the right place, in the perfect situation.
When, without knowing why, things come to us when we just needed them, someone solves a problem to us when we just thought about him/her, or a door opens for the next step after having completed the previous one, this is synchronicity. The succession of synchronized events in pursuit of a specific objective, conscious or unconscious, are the ones that we crossed out as coincidences because we are surprised that everything is happening so perfectly and in a linear way.
Examples of synchronicity
The succession of events that come to us at the moment we need them is infinite. If we are thinking about a topic that concerns us and suddenly a friend leaves us a book in a total and spontaneous way that provides us the right information, if we want to get a determined object and you hear a conversation between two people talking about a store that has just brought it, this is synchronicity; if it turns out that we are secretly thinking about changing our job and a colleague comments you that he/she has heard that company “ABC” is looking for someone, etc. Everything that we mark as coincidence is part of the world of synchronicity.
How does it work?
Synchronicity has an analogy with what we explained not so long about the operation of the Law of Attraction. As Paulo Coelho said in The Alchemist: “When you want something, the whole universe conspires so you can get it“.
The following model, described by Aaron Murakami, can help us understand it better:
This model is based on three factors: our conscious thought, our subconscious mind, and the unconscious collective mind. Conscious thought is the set of our daily mental activity, the subconscious mind is our automatic mind that we are not aware of, the one that absorbs all the data that arrives, without discriminating and executes our own logical processes of reasoning. It is also the mediator between the conscious mind and the collective unconscious mind. Finally, the unconscious collective mind is the infinite mind that contains all the information in the past, present, and future of all parts, of all people.
If we look at the diagram, we see that there are four people (A, B, C, and D). “C” is not indicated as such, but it is the person at the top of the diagram. The semicircles are the subconscious minds and the outer circle is the collective mind, known by many names in different philosophies, literature, and religions. Finally, the outer dotted line indicates that there is no border for the collective mind, include everything and everyone without exception.
Well, let’s see. If person A has a desire X, his “normal” thinking is obviously conscious of the wish. For example, let’s say that the desire is a specific car: a Honda Accord with 100,000 kilometers and for less than 2000 euros. Also, we want it to be blue. The subconscious mind of A takes this desire X and implanted it in the collective unconscious. Desire X not only represents the total desire but also every detail in which our request can be decomposed. In parallel, the subconscious mind of each human being is continuously and actively exploring the collective unconscious looking for anything that can resonate with it, this is, a vibrational frequency that is the same as the expressed desire. Let’s say now that person C has this Honda Accord. It has almost 110,000 kilometers and he wants to sell it for 1950 euros, and it’s also navy blue. The subconscious of person C detects this desire of the subconscious of person A, and they get linked to each other. In these moments, both minds are hooked.
Now, how to execute the necessary synchronicities so that the car passes from C to A?
The subconscious minds of A and C will influence the conscious thought of their respective personalities to do what is necessary for A and C to gravitate towards each other. Knowing that C wants to sell the car and that he has placed a sales announcement for it on a sales-site, A will influence his own conscious mind so that it approaches to look at that sales announcement as if it were an idea implanted in the head of A that appears suddenly. It is likely that person A is looking at cars in dozens of places to see if he finds what he is looking for, but his subconscious mind is trying to guide him to a certain place where it knows that he can find what he wants. When A follows the idea that came to his head, and goes to that place, wohooo!, the sales announcement of the car of his dreams is there. What a coincidence, right?.
Actually, this appears to be so easy and it seems to give us a valid model of operation, but this depends greatly on two things:
1- how much “power” our desire had when it was issued and created by our subconscious mind so the collective mind could detect and other minds could “read” it, and
2- how much we follow the “ideas” that come to our mind suddenly when we want to achieve something.
It seems not to work for me, why?
It is more than likely that if you do not believe in synchronicity either for two reasons:
1- or you never pay attention to your “revelations” or inner “intuition” and therefore you don’t pursue those clues that could lead you to get your wishes, or,
2- as we explained in the post of the Law of Attraction, you do not emit what you want with enough power to be captured by the rest.
In addition, it is also likely that if it works for you, it will work better and better, because like any process it requires practice, and the more you accept your intuitions, follow them and see how they are producing results, the easier it will be for your subconscious to attract to you the circumstances that allow you to achieve the desires of your conscious thought.
