While many people make their decisions based on logic, the metaphysically-minded know that the universe provides hints about the best course of action to take. However, if you’re not paying attention, it’s easy to miss such spiritual guidance. Synchronicity is one type of spiritual guidance that occurs when multiple events occur in a meaningful way but seem to have no cause and effect relationship. For example, if you decide that you want to learn how to decorate cakes and a week later, you happen across an advertisement for a local cake decorating class in the newspaper, that would be considered synchronicity.
When you experience a synchronicity, the best course of action is to sit up and take notice. Look at it for what it is — a sign that this is an important opportunity that you want to take advantage of.
You may remember incidents of synchronicity in your life, but chances are it happens more often than you realize. Here are some signs that you’re experiencing synchronicity and what steps you might want to take next.
You run across the same person more than once in a brief period of time. This is one of the most powerful forms of synchronicity, and it typically means that there is a conversation that you need to have with this person. The synchronicity has occurred because the two of you did not exchange the messages you were supposed to share, and now you’re being given a second chance. A good thing to do when this happens is to stop and strike up a conversation. Tell the person how funny it is to run into him or her again and take a minute to see how the person is doing. You may be surprised by what comes out of the interaction.
You lock eyes with someone more than once. Along the same lines as the sign above, this is a sign that you, again, have unfinished business with this person. A lot of romantic literature talks about how love affairs begin when two people lock eyes across the room. Such stories aren’t so far-fetched, as the eyes convey what is in the soul. When we lock eyes multiple times, it’s often a sign that our souls recognize something in a person that our logical mind may not see. When this happens, again, you should open yourself to having a conversation with this person.
You hear the same information from multiple sources. This is one of the most common ways that synchronicity shows itself. It happens when there is a bit of information that you should follow through on. You may be having a conversation with a friend and he or she tells you about a new book that piques your interest. Then a family member might call you up and mention the same book. Later, you might be channel surfing and come across an interview with the book’s author. These are signs that this book is important to you and your next step should obviously be to pick up the book.
When you take heed of a synchronicity and follow its advice, you not only further your evolution, but you let the universe know that you’re grateful for synchronicity and you’ll experience more of it.
