Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events, that are apparently unrelated by cause, or unlikely to occur together by chance. Also they are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner.
Synchronicity as a concept was first described by the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875 – 1961) during the 1920s.
Jung felt this principle gave conclusive evidence for the concepts he developed of archetypes and the collective unconscious. Work that has since been expanded on by many others. It was descriptive of a governing dynamic underlying the entire span of human experience and history. Through social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual events. Concurrent events that initially appear coincidental, though later turn out to be related by cause are termed incoincident.
Jung believed many experiences are coincidences due to chance in terms of causality. Thus he suggested the manifestation of parallel events or circumstances in terms of meaning. As such reflecting this.
The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. Causality, or cause runs through everything. There is always a reason for events occurring.
As such the concept maintains that while events can be grouped by cause, they can also be grouped by meaning. Meaning though is a complex mental construction. It is related to conscious and unconscious influence. Meaning is assigned by the person perceiving it, you.
Synchronicity is about the concept of relationships between minds. The relationship between ideas. It is crafted in its own logical way, which gives rise to relationships that are not directly related. As such these relationships are able to manifest as simultaneous occurrences which are meaningfully related. Basically thoughts leaping between sources that then lead to encounters which are unrelated in terms of other reasons of cause.
These synchronistic events open up to reveal deeper patterns. Partly this is what Carl Jung refers to in the concept of the collective unconscious. Though also goes on to be developed by Deepak Choprah as non-local intelligence.
Syncronicity pervades your life. It gives you what you know as opportunities. When you work with it then you can recognise the various syncroniticies earlier, and achieve more with them. On a level you have asked for them, though that is usually on a deeply unconscious level.
Recognising events of this kind offers you the ability to fulfil your dreams and what you wish to do in life. For more on this read Meditation and Syncronicity. I fully recommend working with the two things together, the results are magical.
