Wikipedia defines synchronicity as “A concept, first explained by analytical psychologist Carl Jung, which holds that events are ‘meaningful coincidences’ if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related.”
This has likely happened to you, you are probably thinking of an instance right now. Maybe that time you went to call your BFF and, in that moment, their name popped up on your caller ID, or after learning a new word and you begin to hear it everywhere. Now those may just be your average coincidences but have you ever experienced something beyond just your average coincidence?
At some point in your life have you felt as if the universe was almost validating something you did whether it be an action or a thought?
I would just like to take this time to tell you that you are not crazy.
I had first heard the term synchronicity from my godmother. We speak often of bizarre coincidences. Very into the spiritual aspect of the universe, she is a firm believer that everything has meaning you just have to pay attention.
I only mention this topic because a day after I drafted my post Two Word(y) my professor and I exchanged thoughts on headlines, click-bait and ambiguity. In addition, a copywriter’s meet up I had hoped to attend exercised writers with a game called two words. I cannot make these things up people!
Having been questioning whether or not I was heading in the right direction by sharing my roughly edited thoughts with the interweb these synchronicities erased what doubt I had.
I don’t want to litter this posts with examples and anecdotes. I hope you know these experiences I am talking about. Those times the world seems to be helping you and pointing you toward the right direction.
If after reading this you are convinced I am just a crazy person, I challenge you to find deeper meaning in your daily interactions and to interpret what the universe is trying to tell you.
