I’m sure you’ve heard of it. It’s a word that gets thrown around a lot in the health and wellbeing arena but may still seem elusive in your life.
So, why do some people seem to be able to tap into its power while others seem to aim and miss?
Well, there’s a secret that people just don’t want to share so I’m here to do just that.
But before I get to that, let’s rewind and start right at the start…
WHAT IS SYNCHRONICITY?
Here’s the definition of synchronicity:
the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.
It’s the magic moments in your life when things seem to fall perfectly into place; the times you meet someone who changes your life; the sign you see by chance that leads you to something amazing; following your intuition to discover a new path.
It is an invisible force that connects people, places, experiences, time and space – a web that unifies this human experience and brings meaning where there seems to be none.
Synchronicity is the universe saying, YES!
And if we’re honest with ourselves, we have all experienced at least a glimpse of this amazing force in action at some point in our lives.
So, let’s return to my first question:
Why do some people seem to be able to tap into its power while others seem to aim and miss?
There is no doubt that some people just seem to have more luck on their side or coincidences happen to them all the time.
OK, so what’s their secret? Well, there are actually four and here is the first…
THEY PAY ATTENTION
Yup. It’s that simple.
They actually pay attention to every little thing that happens in their lives.
You see, the more you pay attention to the little signs and synchronicities that happen every single day, the more signs and synchronicities appear to you.
When you write off an experience or meeting as simply a coincidence, you miss the opportunity to learn from it and to tap into its magical energy.
However, if you catch it and thank the universe for this little message then you attract more of the same.
As my teacher always says, “Like Attracts Like”. So if you are looking for synchronicity and are living in its energy, you attract more of the same.
And here’s the second secret…
THEY APPRECIATE THE LITTLE THINGS
Those ‘lucky’ people who seem to make things happen start small. They are grateful for the little things. The motorist who lets them in at a junction. The smile as someone passes them in the street. The laughter of their children. The 2 pence piece they find on the pavement.
We all want the big things to fall into place. Finding the love of our lives, feeling like we belong, winning the lottery, doing a job we love, etc. But these big things can’t manifest if we’re not appreciative of the little things.
So, start small and appreciate what you already have.
And, the next secret is this…
THEY MEET THE UNIVERSE HALFWAY
Nothing happens if you sit on your butt and wait for it to arrive!
Moaning about how you never meet anyone won’t help you if you never go out of your house or get online. Wanting a new job but never looking for one or learning new skills to help you get one won’t make it magically land in your lap.
You have to go and meet the universe halfway.
And this is usually the most difficult bit for people to come to terms with because it is easier to stay in your comfort zone and not put yourself out there. If you don’t try something new you can’t fail; you can’t get hurt and you certainly won’t look stupid.
Fear is one of the biggest killers of synchronicity because it helps you stay stuck.
Whatever it is that you desire, take steps (little ones if you must) to show that you are willing to change your life. That’s how you invite synchronicity in.
THEY LET GO
I’ve just told you to meet the universe halfway and take responsibility for your own future. How can I now ask you to let go?
Because if you are too focused on EXACTLY what you want then you don’t leave any room for synchronicity to enter. You don’t see the signs pointing you to an amazing job because you ONLY want to work in a particular town; you ignore the message from a potential partner because they haven’t got the job you want them to have; you miss the perfect house for you because it’s got the wrong aspect or layout.
Inviting synchronicity into your life means asking for what you want whilst leaving enough room for the universe to give you something just as good OR BETTER. The more controlling you are, the less room that magic has to surprise you.
By being unattached to the outcome and allowing yourself to see more than just your ‘ideal’ in whatever it is you are asking for, you can truly create a life that is beyond your wildest dreams.
