What is the Synchronicity?
I think that this Wikipedia article intro blurb explains it fairly well. To me the synchronicity can be a spiritual tool as well; these seemingly unrelated events ARE the Sign.
What is the Sign?
“Lord, please send me a sign.” “I need a sign.” “A sign will point me towards my calling.” “I saw the sign / And it opened up my eyes / I saw the sign.” And so on and so forth.
What does it all mean?
In the so forth section of the previous header, is the saying, “Signs from god come in threes.” If the Synchronicity is that TWO causally unrelated events have meaning, then what happens with THREE? Surely that is so improbable that it’s impossible. I never ignore things that I interpret coming to me in threes. I don’t know if it’s God, or the Universe, or just my own preoccupations and need for positivity pushing me toward good, but threes have never let me down.
Give us an example…
On the previous TJ Does Stuff Tumblr and on my Twitter, I sometimes talk about #myjourney. It’s a very unoriginal tag as in, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Recently, there has been a large step in #myjourney that means that I’m opening communication better (woohoo, growing as a person) and also including my family more. Last week, my neighbor was playing a Mary J. Blige album (1). Later on in the week, Mary J. Blige popped up in YouTube related videos (2). Then, the day after my breakdown/revelation (I call it breakdown until weeks later when it then becomes a revelation) my close friend was playing a Mary J. Blige album in his room (3). At (3), I sat and I said, “Mary J. always reminds me of my cousin. I only saw her once over Thanksgiving Break; I’m going to call her.” During our phone conversation, my cousin tells me that she has struggled with the exact same things, and will talk to my parents and be my advocate…she’s going to help me on #myjourney.
So what’s the point?
I’m not saying you should start living by the threes mantra. I’m just saying that you should strive for positivity and growth, and pay attention to what’s right in front of you.
