Synchronicities are people, places or events that your soul attracts into your life - for one reason or another. There are no accidents as you soul attracts everything into your life. Sometimes these lead to learning lessons - mostly they are about spiritual growth and you purpose here.
Synchroncities are becoming part of our daily lives as we learn to understand how we manifest events.
Not all synchronicities are events that you must experience or take seriously.
Synchronicities often can point to 'learning lessons' you do not wish to experience.
They can also go nowhere as they occur to make a point.
You must look at the bigger picture of the synchronicty - not the actual event. Look at the underlying facts when the synchronicity occurs to be sure you know why you attracted that person/ situation into your life.
For example - you meet someone who interests you and touches your soul. Through synchronicity - that person seems to come into your life over and over again. You begin to feel a destiny with that person. You begin to think with your heart instead of your head. You connect with that person. In some cases the karma between the two people is positive - but in many cases you have attracted that person into your life for a learning lesson whether you are aware of it or not.
You can consider an event synchronistic when an inner experience such as a dream, vision, or other form of deja vu prepares you for the physical event.
- There are in your life when financial difficulties seem to have no end. Yet there is always enough money for basic expenses...rent, food, utilities. Finances seem to appear where and when they are needed.
- You have just received your last check from unemployment when suddenly a job comes along.
- You walk into a book store not knowing what to buy, and the book you need falls from a shelf and practically hits you over the head.
You have been feeling ill with no apparent cure. You are out for the day and meet someone who knows a doctor or healer with the answers.
- There is a sudden relocation which seems to be for one reason, and you find much more than you bargained for.
- You finally end a bad relationship and immediately another partner comes into your life.
- You feel depressed and can't find focus in your life and the next person you talk you says something that brings you the guidance you need.
- Everyone's favorite.....You drive to a place where parking is "next to impossible" and someone pulls out of a parking spot or it is just waiting for you.

Synchronicity is a term used by the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung to describe the alignment of universal forces with one's own life experience. Jung believed that some, but not all, coincidences were not mere chance, but instead a literal "co-inciding", or alignment of forces in the universe to create an event or circumstance. The process of becoming intuitively aware and acting in harmony with these forces is what Jung labelled "individuation." Jung said that an individuated person would actually shape events around them through the communication of their consciousness with the collective unconscious.
Jung spoke of synchronicity as being an acausal connecting principle, in other words a pattern of connection that works outside of or in addition to causality.
Jung's most well-known example of synchronicity involves plum pudding. He tells a tale of a certain Monsieur Deschamps who is treated to some plum pudding by his neighbor Monsieur de Fortgibu. Ten years later, he encounters plum pudding on the menu of a Paris restaurant, and wants to order some, but the waiter tells him the last dish has already been served to another customer, who turns out to me M. de Fortgibu. Many years later, M. Deschamps is at a gathering, and is once again offered plum pudding. He recalls the earlier incident and tells his friends that only M. de Fortgibu is missing to make the setting complete, and in the same instant the now senile M. de Fortgibu enters the room by mistake.
