Lately, I have had amazing experiences of synchronicity. It is not so much what happened, rather, how I felt when the synchronous experiences occurred. The visceral experience is one of feeling connected and cared for; alive within an active feedback loop with the Universe.
We go through life conscious of our wishes, wants, desires, longings. We express them through spoken or written word, through feelings and visualizations. We express them through prayer, ritual and action.
Synchronicity involves a connective experience of inner longing with outer manifestation. With synchronicity, a version of our longing shows up in materialized form and in Divine timing. Many readers of this blog know Time as an inner experience. Our ancestors knew and lived this, too. Synchronous experiences, major and minor, are experiences of majical, alive or Divine Timing. This kind of timing reveals the recognition of Self and Universe as connected. Staying receptive to synchronicity is really living in a time-free zone – anything can happen, at anytime, so we stay open to the experience that All is Possible.
It can take a shift in consciousness to receive synchronous events. For the past 2000 years, at least, we have been conditioned to exert effort. In this New Time of the 5th Dimension, of which increased synchronicity is a part, effort is replaced by presence.
Since writing the blog post on stopping thinking, I have been noticing when my thoughts go to future. As soon as I notice this, I bring awareness back to the present. It seems this practice might have something to do with the increase in synchronous events I have been receiving lately.
Synchronicity is also connected with intuition because one has to know, and choose, when and where to place one’s self in order to align with the synchronous event.
Releasing attachment to outcome also helps increase the experience of synchronicity. Acceptance is much easier when we receive what is offered without judging it. “This or something better” we ask, and the Universe delivers.
One major change in the shift to 5th Dimension Consciousness is the direct experience that we are not alone. We are in a collaborative, co-creative experience with the morphic Field of all and within a living, loving, responsive Universe.
We are no longer isolated, cut off lone wolves. We are communal, part of, we belong. This is a major shift, especially, for those of us in the United States, as our country was founded on a frontier experience of survival and independence. We are Global now, and Cosmically interactive. We always were; now we have more awareness of it.
Synchronicity is important. It is part of the new 5th Dimension experience, it is part of living in the present moment, it is part of intuition, wise listening, and it is part of belonging.
Deepak Chopra writes about synchronicity this way:
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. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly)” ― Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles
Here’s to synchronicity. May your life be filled with it! Please share in the comments how it feels when you receive synchronous experiences.
