Synchronicity: is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated occurring together in a meaningful manner [to the observer]. To count as synchronicity, the events should be unlikely to occur together by chance.

If you believe synchronicity is simply coincidence, then you haven’t read any of the top experts in the field. The famous psychotherapist Carl Gustav Jung coined the term synchronicity in the 1920s to reference the alignment of universal forces with a person’s experiences.

These forces have been sought out for centuries in many spiritual traditions as a means of aligning with the “flow.” This usually takes years of disciplined meditation, study, ritual or other means to navigate this journey toward a harmonic “individuation.” To some the search is inward for the self, yet for others it’s an outward search for spirituality.

My first experience with synchronicity was on March 21st at 3:03am which is the 3rd month, 3rd week, 3rd hour, 3rd minute or 3333, on the equinox and the moment of my birth. It was my alignment with the universal forces, the planet, space and time.

My awakening was also through no effort of my own and came by way of a supernatural encounter with an entity of light. It began my involvement with and research into the metaphysical nature of reality – I became “enlightened.” Because of this I have an inherent understanding of many esoteric concepts like the flow, the spirit, one-ness and even divinity.

My experiences are not entirely unique, but the way in which this window of understanding opened for me is. There was no journey, no explanation as to why – the knowledge was just revealed. Things that to many are never more than concepts and metaphors, I actually see as having real form. I’ve witnessed many paranormal phenomena unfold with me seemingly being the only connection. However, because of my earlier encounters I’ve never attributed much of it directly to myself. I’ve always sensed a presence around me. So unlike many others who seek the path, I feel that for some reason the source found me.

Being human however leaves me questioning: “Who or what is this presence?” Abilities like ESP, clairvoyance, telekinesis are all real along with the concepts of a sub-stratum or pre-space. But what is our connection?

In Jung’s book “An Acausal Connecting Principle” it is subjective meaning that connects us. Without an observer (YOU) there is no mind, no synchronicity, no meaning. Thoughts connected to events, mind connected to movements of matter, absent of a cause (acausal). Thinking something before it happens, remote viewing, telekinesis, where do these abilities come from? Since scientists don’t accept the mind as a cause. How then do we prove any of this?

I say that we are using a flawed science because it is incomplete. Physicist, Dr. William Tiller proposes that consciousness is what’s missing from the equation. It’s the unifying integrator of all the individual constituents. Bohm says there is a hidden variable implying that neither relativity nor quantum mechanics should be accepted as a conclusive nor exclusive solution.

My research began with Carl Jung but for millennia prior to Jung man has experienced synchronicity. Theoretically it begins outside of our space-time in the flow where all knowledge exits and our material reality takes shape. It then unfolds into our dimension only to return back to the flow. This is described by David Bohms theory of “the implicate order.” However prior to synchronicity, ancient humanity used words like sympathy, harmony and unity.

In the fourth century B.C., the Greek philosopher Heraclitus viewed all things as being inter-related, nothing is isolated and that all things are linked. Similarly Hippocrates said: “There is ONE common flow, a common breathing. Everything is in sympathy.” A bond – and even between inanimate objects. A form of “animism” or the belief that all matter has consciousness. This is a classic idea whereby separateness is an illusion.

Now what you should know is that Jung had a lifelong interest in and many experiences with the paranormal. Working with him was the Nobel Prize winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli who also had experiences with telekinesis. Catastrophic breakdowns of experimental equipment would inexplicably occur when he was around. It was often joked about, but other scientists feared his presence during experiments because it was commonly believed he was the cause. This is well known in physics as “The Pauli Effect.” 

Together they helped pioneer the study of parapsychology. Others studying non-material or fringe science also advanced the field (sometimes unknowingly) by the very nature of their work. Pauli’s early work in quantum physics had a strong influence by changing how we think about matter itself.

A great example of good solid theory is Rupert Sheldrake’s morphic fields.” He shows us how fields create relationships. Physicist David Bohm’s “Implicate and Explicate Order” as previously mentioned. Michael Talbot’s famous “Holographic Universe” or Physicist David Peat’s “Meaning and Form.” All of these hypothesize a substratum beneath our material and temporal reality.  Much of quantum physics is competing theory and it’s the same with non-material science.

Consciousness itself cannot be scientifically quantified – there is no explaining it. Many believe it exists outside the brain, perhaps the Akashic field. Psi-fields, source fields, the flow, these are all conceptual dimensions bound together by abstract relationships. Where consciousness and matter are two aspects of the same thing. These are the domains of the trickster gods where Hermes and Loki conspire to fool us using mind, matter and meaning.

Ok, and although I’m in agreement with many of these theorists about some hypothetical matrix. What is the intelligence behind the curtain?

Since before recorded history humankind has recognized the existence of a greater intelligence. Ask any believer of any esoteric system and you’ll get many different answers. The spirit, God, the Goddess, Sophie, Allah, the Demiurge, The One. History’s greatest scientists came to this same conclusion. Einstein said: “Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe – a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”

Also Max Planck the father of quantum physics said: “All matter originates and exists, only by virtue of a force. We must assume behind this force is the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.” Isaac Newton believed the universe was mechanical, set into motion by God and then left to run. There are others who believe that all existence is an emanation of God. Some don’t believe there is an external intelligence at all. This is not my belief!

What many of these theories and beliefs have in common, is that your own thoughts can alter the outside world in relation to you. Though, you alone are not the creator within the flow of the source field. You are simply part of the process. The biggest secret is not that there is a co-creator, but that it’s YOU! Ultimately there is a separate coordinating intelligence in control.

This is what causes events to coincide without your thoughts, like for instance, the moment of my birth: 3333. That’s why we pray or chant, recite mantras, sing praises and invoke – expecting a particular outcome. Deep down inside we’ve always known we were being watched, even in an empty room, we are never really alone. How many times do events align that seem so strange and statistically unlikely to have occurred by chance? They must originate externally. This means, that The Source or The-One controlling it all is out there and not within…

On Synchronicity


The Magic of Synchronicity

Amy L. Lansky, PhD, Contributor

You know the feeling. You’re sitting in a café or standing in line at the supermarket, and suddenly you meet a complete stranger who, for some inexplicable reason, seems like an old friend. You are on the same “wavelength.” Your energies mesh, and afterward, you walk away feeling invigorated and optimistic – perhaps even younger! That’s the power of similar vibrations.

Or consider another common experience: the uplifting effect of being part of a group focused on an exciting endeavor – a community project, a thrilling sporting event or concert, or perhaps praying or meditating together. Entering into a collective experience with others often seems to magnify its effects, because everybody is literally “vibrating” in the same way. Just as two violins playing the same note create a resonance that reinforces and amplifies the sound, the effect of two or more people getting onto the “same wavelength” can create an enhanced experience that exceeds the sum of its parts.

The power of similar vibrations can manifest in some surprising ways. Consider, for example, its application in the realm of psychological and physical healing. Both medical studies and practical experience have shown that when patients attend support-group meetings with others who have similar health problems, their collective energy provides a stimulus that enables change and healing to occur.

This phenomenon has even been measured scientifically. For example, researchers have found that not only can humans use intention to influence the behavior of otherwise randomly-behaving machines, but that connected couples working together – that is, people “on the same wavelength” – have the ability to exert even greater influence [1]. Taking a lead from these results, researchers Dean Radin and Roger Nelson of Princeton placed random-output devices at a variety of intense community venues: music concerts, sporting events, and even Burning Man gatherings in Nevada. The results were significant and nothing short of mind-boggling. As the researchers predicted, the machines did indeed deviate from their otherwise normal random behavior in the presence of these collective “high vibe” events [2, 3].

If our collective energies can affect machines, it’s not surprising that they affect us too. In fact, this has also been measured scientifically. One series of studies on the effects of transcendental meditation, for example, found that if enough meditators work together and focus their intentions on a specific goal, they can achieve some pretty amazing things – for instance, lower the amount of violent crime in a city for extended periods of time [4].

Another phenomenon that might be related to the power of similar vibrations is synchronicity – the coincidence of seemingly unrelated events that share a common meaning. A typical example of synchronicity is when the beloved clock or watch of an individual breaks or stops at the precise moment of their death.

The phenomenon was first described by famed Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, who also coined the term “synchronicity” [5]. His first striking encounter with a “meaningful coincidence” of this kind occurred when one of his patients was describing her dream about a golden scarab beetle. Suddenly, Jung heard a rapping on the window. When he opened it, a rose chafer beetle – the insect most similar to a scarab in Jung’s region – flew into the room. Jung quickly put two and two together. He realized that the mythological meaning of the scarab – an ancient Egyptian symbol for rebirth – was highly pertinent to his patient’s problems, and that the recounting of her dream was the reason why the insect had appeared in waking life.

When you think about it, the phenomenon of synchronicity has some profound implications. In particular, the universe may not be operating like a cold, meaningless machine after all. Instead, the reality we experience each day may be flooded with, what I like to call fields of meaning. Each field of meaning has a particular vibration to it, and objects, individuals, emotions, symbols, dreams, and events that share this vibration may resonate with one another and then, as a result, co-occur in time and space. If so, this may be what causes a synchronicity. In other words, in addition to simple cause and effect (“A causes B causes C”), synchronicity may be another fundamental mechanism that determines how our reality unfolds.

If you look back on your life, I’m sure you can come up with a few personal experiences of synchronicity. Often, these amazing coincidences occur at key junctures – when you meet your true love, when you get the job of your dreams, when fate seems to open a door. Somehow, the intensity of our desire may create a field of meaning that brings fortuitous synchronicities our way. Here are two pretty amazing examples from my own life.

Back in 2008, when I was writing a book about this subject [6], I spent a few days focusing on the work of British biologist Rupert Sheldrake and his theory of morphic fields – a theory that also directly relates to the power of similar vibrations. Sheldrake proposed the concept of morphic resonance as a way for similar or related things, such as members of the same species or emotionally connected individuals, to communicate with one another. He then used his theory to explain a variety of otherwise unexplained phenomena – for example, how animals have been able to evolve similarly on very distant parts of the planet, even when no physical contact between populations was possible [7]. After a day of reading and writing about Sheldrake’s ideas, I was greeted by my husband returning home from his job at a computer research laboratory in Silicon Valley. “Amy, you’re not going to believe this,” he said. “Tomorrow, Rupert Sheldrake is giving a talk at my lab and you and I are going to take him out to lunch.” What?!

Now please understand; talks about esoteric subjects like Sheldrake’s morphic field theory are not commonplace in computer research labs. In fact, Sheldrake’s talk was poorly attended. It just so happened that one of the lab’s researchers had met Sheldrake in Scotland and had invited him to speak the next time he was in our area. Before I could even finish writing about Rupert Sheldrake, I was sitting and having lunch with him. Coincidence? Or synchronicity?

Here’s another charming synchronicity that occurred the summer of 2013. Every year, my husband and I take a vacation in an idyllic lake-filled region of Ontario, Canada called Muskoka. In 2013, we decided to drive cross-country from California to Canada for the first time, and we brought along our iPod filled with many thousands of songs to serve as our musical accompaniment. Over the course of our trek, we drove 5,000 miles meandering through the northern states of the USA on our way to Canada. At the end of the summer, we headed south to my hometown of Buffalo, New York, to visit with family and friends before flying home to California.

Now, most years, when we make our voyage south to Buffalo, it means the end of a relaxing summer vacation. As a result, I’m usually a bit sad as we cross the Peace Bridge over the Niagara River into Buffalo. But that summer, having just explored the vast expanse of the United States, I felt differently. I was happy to come back home. And just as we were beginning to see road signs indicating that the Peace Bridge was near, our iPod started playing a song that we had not heard all summer. First we heard the introductory bars of music, and then Ray Charles began singing: “Oh beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain…”

“I can’t believe it! Another synchronicity!” I said to my husband. As the song continued, I marveled at this amazing “coincidence.”  I felt blessed, transfixed, delighted, charmed. And sure enough, just at the very moment when we hit the center of the bridge where three flags fly – first the Canadian maple leaf, followed by an international flag, and then the American stars and stripes – Ray’s voice reached the climax of America the Beautiful: “From sea to shining sea!” Wow.

Think about it.  The world may not be so random after all. We humans may be much more than passive observers of a meaningless universe, buffeted about by chaotic chance.  Instead, we are all active co-creators, and not just in obvious ways. Our individual states of being, and especially our collective states of being, affect everything and everyone around us – indeed, how reality itself unfolds.

Of course, the wisdom teachings of many indigenous cultures already underscore this truth. In fact, some spiritual teachers stress that an increase in synchronicities can be a sign that one is on the right path. Knowing this, I was even more thrilled when Ray Charles’s voice heralded my return to America.

So keep your eye out for synchronicities when they occur. Don’t shrug them off – watch what comes next! And share your “good vibrations” with the world. They really do have an effect, perhaps even greater than you realize.
