Why You Should Care About Synchronicities

Sometimes it’s more than a coincidence

A month back I kept seeing 11:11 and 22:22. Whenever I reached for my phone randomly in the morning or evening, it was always 11:11 or 22:22.

At the time I didn’t think much of it. The numbers just looked pretty, symmetrical, clean. I went about my day and pretty much forgot about it. But then, it happened, again and again and again.

I kept seeing the same numbers for 1 or 2 weeks, every single day without fail. I never put an alarm clock before that time. I never purposely watched the hour so that I could make a wish at 11:11.

It was kinda freaky but the good kind. I started wondering if seeing those numbers was a coincidence. What else should it be? But then again, it is kinda weird you see the same numbers every day for about 2 weeks straight.

That’s when I went onto Google to find answers to my questions.

More than a coincidence

I repeatedly read that seeing 1111 was a sign from the universe that you were on the right path and that your actions aligned with your purpose.

It actually made a lot of sense because I had felt quite happy with what I was doing around the time I saw these numbers. I had found joy in writing and felt like writing might be something I want to do as an actual career.

I also read that:

“Angel Numbers 11, 111 and 1111 are often perceived with increased frequency when people are just embarking on their spiritual journey. They’re a sign of awakening, almost a symptom of your stirring, rising consciousness.”

That being said, synchronicities aren’t just coincidences. The universe is trying to give us a message and it shows us that we are deeply connected to everyone around us.

2222 apparently means that you will enter a relationship soon.

While some people might laugh about synchronicities, saying “these damn numbers don’t mean a thing”, I am here to tell you that it isn’t about numbers only.

Synchronicities also include:

  • Thinking or dreaming of someone and that person texting or calling on the same or the next day.
  • Listening to music and the lyrics giving you an answer you’ve long been looking for.
  • Things falling strangely into place. You might have just lost your job and suddenly, someone asks you if you want to start a business with them. (Even though you didn’t tell anyone that you are looking for a job!)

I definitely experienced all of these synchronicities and I always felt very grateful because I knew that something or someone was watching over me and guiding me.

Final thoughts

Synchronicities are a magical thing. They are freaky and strange but they also bring tremendous joy. Being told that you are on the right path can boost your motivation and confidence.

If you haven’t encountered any synchronicities yet, it might be a sign that you aren’t happy and doing things that align with your values. It might be time to redirect your life. It could also be that you aren’t ready yet to receive any information from the universe yet.

Think about a person who has low self-esteem. They would never be able to see that someone is interested in them. Equally, you have to raise your vibration and trust in the universe before you can receive any messages.

If you’ve had any experiences with synchronicities let me know! I am eager to hear what happened 😚
