I believe that everything happens for a reason and I believe that by going with the flow we can allow more of the good stuff in.
Call it like attracts like, the law of attraction, straight forward positive thinking, or my favourite – SYNCHRONICITY. Whatever it is, it seems that nothing really is random and we attract our own experiences by how we behave and feel.
This belief has taken me a good many years to truly embrace, but now that I have, serendipitously I find that the more I just let go and believe, the more signs I see to convince me that nothing really is random at all and my experiences have all taught me something different about myself.
“There are those that say seeing is believing. I am telling you that believing is seeing.” ~ Neale Donald Walsch
And it’s not some major miracle that I am expecting, or even a small one, as I now simply take notice of the small things that are already miraculous and the way in which my life is rich in so many ways, thus attracting more of the same. Like the little synchronicity of putting on my ‘Nothing is Random’ tattoo from a pack of Conscious Ink tattoos I bought at Heaven on Earth last week and then finding out that my good friend and owner of said shop also put the same tattoo on that evening! Coincidence, maybe, but I prefer to think of it as synchronicity and I said a little thank you to the Universe for connecting us in a way that was just what we both needed that day.
Carl Jung coined the phrase ‘Synchronicity’ in the 1950s and stated that it shared similar characteristics of an “intervention of grace”. He also believed that in a person’s life, synchronicity served a role similar to that of dreams, with the purpose of shifting a person’s egocentric conscious thinking to greater wholeness and this has definitely been my experience!
For me, synchronicity is…
… the oracle cards I pick that reinforce what I already know or feel
… that song on the radio at just the right time
… one of my kids saying something that I was just thinking about
… the friends who call or message right when I need them
… work coming in exactly when I need it
… all ordering the same food when you go out to eat with friends
It is with grace and gratitude that I approach every day and I am thankful for everything that I have. And whilst I have dreams of how I would like my life to look like, I try not to focus too much on how it is going to happen. That may seem a little odd, but it allows me to see opportunities at the far edges of my vision instead of being blinkered only to what I already know. It opens my life up to some amazing possibilities and I find myself looking at ways of doing things that I wouldn’t have been receptive to even thinking about in the past.
“When you stop existing and you start truly living, each moment of the day comes alive with the wonder and synchronicity.” ~ Steve Maraboli
Can you increase synchronicity in your life?
You just need to start noticing what you already have and say a little ‘thank you’. This very small act will start sending ripples out into the Universe and the more you do it, the more seemingly random events will start happening to you too. After all, nothing really is random after all.
There’s a Crystal for that…
Labradorite is a mystical stone that enhances ‘coincidence control’ or synchronicity and assists in connecting you to Universal energy. Some call it the ‘Destiny Stone’ as it is said to help you discover and follow your true life path. This shimmering crystal is wonderful to wear or have in your collection as a positivity booster!
