One of my favourite words and favourite experiences is that of synchronicity. When I am feeling a little out of sorts or upside down, a synchronous experience puts me right on track. Meaningful co-incidences, we have all had them.
James Redfield, the author of the Celestine Prophecy, challenges us with the idea of Sustaining Synchronicity. He believes a way to manage the level of turmoil in the world, is to be in a state of expectant alertness to Synchronicity on a daily basis. “If we make the experience more consistent, then we realize our lives are trying to take off in a destined direction. We feel more alive.”
I challenge you to be expectant and alert to synchronicities for the next 10 days. Put a reminder on your phone and then write them down as they happen. Keep your stories of synchronicity in a safe place to remind you of your connection to All of Life when things get a little stormy.
During the 5-week run of my Intuition Course we set this very intention. I am amazed at some of the stories the group have shared. One of my favourites: “My friend and I were sitting having tea at Rhodes Memorial and we remembered and spoke about an old school friend whom we hadn’t seen for about 30 years. We were still sitting, when we noticed a family having a photo taken near us by the father. The father turned around and asked us if we would take a photo as he wanted to be in it. My friend stood up and as she was about to take it, the lady in the group called out my friend’s name! At the same time, we recognised her too!! It was our old school friend we had just been talking about!!! Wow! So we all had a good reunion catch up.”
To end off Deepak Chopra says: “According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don’t bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.”
